Stellar service. Our waitress consistently checked in on us to make sure we were taken care of. The food was phenomenal and packed with flavor. For the appetizer, we had the three Rockefeller oysters. They were yummy but could have been cooked longer, which is just a personal preference. For my entree, I had the Jalapeño Bacon and Crab Orecchiette that was a perfect balance of spice with a kick but Italian flavor. I did not finish it all in one sitting, but it still tasted good the next day. The drinks were also good. My favorite thing they had on the drink menu was the February drinks for Valentine’s Day. I had the Box of Chocolates flight, where I could sample them all (although they were full portions 😌). The raspberry truffle was my favorite out of the trio 🩷❤️🩷❤️

Stella's charms with its delectable Italian fare and an extensive menu that's sure to please. Both food and drinks are top-notch. The dining room offers a refined atmosphere, and the lounge/bar area provides a relaxed vibe. It's wise to book in advance to enjoy this stellar dining experience.
