My family ate at Stella's our first night in Taos and had a very enjoyable experience. It is very cozy with a pleasant atmosphere, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Everyone in my family ordered pasta dishes, and they were all very good. Highly recommended!

Hungry after skipping lunch and this filled us up. Delicious salad which we split. Pasta primavera was very good as was the pasta with Italian sausage. Staff was friendly & efficient without being pushy. Nice atmosphere on a cold evening.

We dined there last month. Food and service good as usual. We dined inside because of the cold weather. In spring and summer we prefer to sit on the portal. My Pasta with Italian sausage was superb, my wife's fish with Pontchartrain sauce .lĺ was better than the pasta dish. Desserts are top of the line.

I'm a local and go here once in a while. Sweet little place, but the food I've had has been inconsistent. Absolutely love their lemon chicken dish, but found the spaghetti not so great. Good service.

We wandered in on a rainy Thursday night in September and were immediately shown to a table and served the bottle that we ordered. We had a very nice dinner with attentive service. The pasta was delicious and hot and my husband gave the meatballs two thumbs up. We liked it so much that we went back the next night!... More

Service was underwhelming as the waiter was very grumpy and seemed frustrated that we were vegetarian. Made a "yeh right" comment under his breath when I ordered a child's portion of pasta. Food was very mediocre with low favor. Pasta was not hot. We will not return.

Stella's turned out to be a real disappointment. We had read glowing reviews online, and when we spotted it as we walked from our hotel to the Harwood Museum, we told ourselves we'd return for lunch after our museum tour. Though we wanted very much to like the lunches we ordered at Stella's, we were both royally disappointed. I had... More
