Food was well prepared and hot - but limited menu. Bread service was not very impressive. Servers have only moderate skill/ training. Dining room shows lack of care - clean the air vents etc. Pricing reasonable. Very drafty on cold day each time door opens.

Amazing dinner. The food is incredible here. A meal at Stella not only surpasses any meal here on the island, but most meals in any major city. This family owned business is truly one-of-a-kind

Starting with a very nice bread, the pesto dipping sauce was the best I've ever had. My companion's burrata with caponata also had the best caponata ever. The White anchovy toast (whose bread could have been thinner) was lovely with a very well dressed arugula with a lemony dressing. We both had the seafood fra diavolo, and for the first time ever there was some heat - all the seafood good, and nice to have little more fish than shrimp! Very generous, so no room for dessert, but next time! Will definitely not be my last visit.

Consistently great! We love Stella! Nothing compares to this restaurant down the shore. Interesting menu for foodies or for people who like quality with thoughtfully prepared food. Attentive service ....and Stella has a great vibe. Overall excellent dining experience! We had the stuffed dates, meatballs with polenta for appetizers. Entrees I had the delicious short rib and my wife had the clams with squid ink pasta. Shared a banana- chocolate bread pudding for dessert. Soo good!

First time to Stella and we LOVED it! The food was off the hook delicious, the staff was very well trained and the place is very clean. Only thing you need to remember is that it's cash only but they have a cash machine there so it's easy peezee :)
ENJOY, WE SURE DID AND WE WILL BE BACK!!!

Great little find just a few miles away from the Atlantic City boardwalk, featuring creative American cuisine in a BYOB storefront bistro. The main courses — homemade sausage, sole and crab, and faroe and veggies — were all great, as were the appetizers and the surprise sharable bowl of toasted almond ice cream topped with a candle and brought after overhearing it was one of our birthdays. That tells says a lot about the staff. An extra delight is passing through the kitchen to reach the bathroom!

WE have been eating at Stella's and it predecessors for years. It just never disappoints. The shot ribs served there can not be compared. They are just the best we have ever eaten-anywhere. They are not to be missed.
Salads, appetizer and always on point. Other main courses including their fish is always done right. Stella's is a hidden gem. Don't miss it.

We went to Stella last Saturday for dinner. What a terrific experience we had. Our food was delicious and the service couldn't have been more pleasant and attentive. The restaurant was crowded for a Saturday in December which was kind of a sign that it was really good. Can't wait to go back. Thank You for a great night!

It was our first time at Stella, but it will not be our last. All of our appetizers and dinners were excellent.
Service was very good, and the restaurant is very nice inside. All four of us enjoyed the evening very much.

It’s a Ventnor gem that I highly recommend. It is small but the food is great and the service outstanding. We were disappointed that the short ribs were not available on a Saturday night and their dinners are a bit pricey but was worth it.

Food was very good. We enjoyed the atmosphere and had really good service. I would only suggest that they enhance their dessert menu -- not very inventive or tasty. Other than that -- we'll definitely be back!

My husband and I give you 5 stars.
When you first walk in the room is very inviting. The choice of music is chill and relaxing while being upbeat. It helps with keeping your table conversations private. Nicely done.
The menu was exciting. The staff was very understanding of food allergies.
The food was not only presented nicely but was also delicious!!
We will definitely be returning!

This was our first visit. It was a Saturday in October. Restaurant was full and there was only one server. No host, no manager - just her. The food was absolutely delicious but the service was lacking. I don't blame her as she had no help. We will try it again hoping there is more than just one person on the floor.

Excellent restaurant. Have been there many times and have never been disappointed . My husband said his fish selection, sole, for dinner was the best he has had and we dine out four to five times a week in fine dining restaurants . Highly recommend .
