Stella is one of my favorite restaurants in the Margate/Ventnor area. The food is consistently fabulous, the staff is attentive and friendly, and it has a great overall cozy vibe. Bonus points that it is BYOB!

We really enjoyed our dinner. Decor & ambiance were very nice, tables were well spaced & I noticed they installed the same air scrubber we use at our office.Portions were large. We shared the meatball app & labne salad, both excellent. Had Chicken & short rib for dinners, which were also very tasty served with asparagus & mashed potatoes. Service was great. the server asked what order we wanted our apps & the meal was timed perfectly with clean silver brought for each course. We will certainly return.

Menu has not changed for years. Short ribs still good, veal still slightly tough( diners given steak knives.)
Recommended with reservations.

Food was outstanding! Highly recommend the stuffed dates appetizer as well as their amazing homemade sausage with pasta. Tip: Bring a sweater or jacket as it was chilly inside, although they did slightly adjust the temperature when asked.

Overall great selection of apps and entrees to please everyone. The hardest is to make a choice because the food is delicious. We all end up splitting up our dinners so we can enjoy it all. Service is excellent and courteous. We continue to support year round.

Consistently great food, fresh hot and delicious!
If you are a foodie and appreciate well prepared food you will go crazy over this restaurant ! The portions are generous in the presentation Spot on. Love the Decor especially the little 1940s table lamps. It has a great vibe, reminds me of an old school dinner club, Just stunning! We had three amazing dishes. First entree was cod with white lump crab meat. Second entrée was on a bed of fluffy mashed potatoes and the third dish was mine and it was scrumptious. Send tender reveal topping eggplant with tomato sauce. What a great test. I started my meal with mussels that had the best flavor I’ve had in a long time. My sister-in-law had a wonderful crisp Caesar salad.
No dessert this time we were very satisfied with no room for more! Can’t wait to return

Absolutely delicious dinner..I had the veal which was excellent, my husband had the country shrimp which he loved and my fatherinlaw LOVED his eggplant parmigiana! And he’s very picky!
Feel like they could at least give you bread for the table like most places do, especially for the prices you’re paying. Overall, it was a great meal!

Great restaurant. Inside and outdoor seating, nice ambience, service very timely, appropriate. Food was fantastic, while it has an Italian feel, the variety of menu options not being all traditional Italian was extremely refreshing. Food not overly heavy, good portion sizes and great flavor. Overall a great BYOB.

Our party of four had two appetizers, the tomato bisque and Caesar salad, and for entrees had the salmon, pasta and sausage, and the short ribs. The bisque and salad were outstanding. Both the salmon and pasta were very good, with the pasta being generous enough portions for both men to take home the extra. The short ribs were a little disappointing. I had had them before at this restaurant and while the taste was really very good, a large section of fat in the middle was not meant to be eaten. We will most likely be back again, but the short ribs won’t be my choice.
