I do recall La Stalla being very good last year. This year it was better. The atmosphere? Very appealing---and not just to me. Full of happy people on a week night. The food? We had several appetizers to share. Most notable: the calamari. For an entree, I had the pasta special: linguine with chicken in a basil garlic sauce topped... More

Friends recently gathered to this centrally located spot with easy parking for a nice moderately priced evening dinner for 8! Great cozy atmosphere and fabulous service went well with the delicious offerings of soup, appetizers and individual dinners! We were left to talk as long as we wanted on a Thursday evening! A great evening was enjoyed by all.

Ordered shrimp w/ fra diavolo. Arrived in red sauce, no pasta. Very strange. My spouse ordered grilled shrimp which were "rubbery". Will not return.

We visited la stalla for lunch. I have been here before but not in a few yeas as the service the last time I was here was non- existant. The service today was very slow but the server was pleasant when he did appear. The main courses were good but not very filling. One member of the party ordered chicken... More

La Stalla is a gem; the food, the service and the ambiance. We had a great evening and each appetizer and meal was beautifully presented. Our portions were generous and we enjoyed our meals again the second time around. If you are in Newtown make reservations for a delightful evening.

Great gathering place for festive bar, great Italian food and fun atmosphere! Trend setters come here on Friday and Saturday nights to enjoy music. The beautifully dressed 30-50 somethings gather here in droves. Great weekday place to meet for business for causal drink and food. Located in an oversized barn you are transported into a Tuscan villa's warm inviting atmosphere.... More

The atmosphere is cozy and romantic. The bar area is fun and lively. This restaurant is my all time favorite. Every time I go home to visit I make it a point to have dinner at La Stalla. The food is amazing!

They have an extensive menu and also a "family sharing" menu where you can order family style dishes for the table. We were a large party and had excellent service. The food was delicious, they have a full bar and a porch to sit on in nice weather.

If you want a below average Italian meal at a hiked up price with a waiter who hasn't tasted what he is recommending or has no taste, this is the place. The recommended Fresh mozzarella was tasteless and had the texture and appearance of slightly coagulated soup. The veal was okay, not bad but not well seasoned. I should have... More

Slow service, mediocre food, expensive bar. You can make better Italian at home. Disappointed. Don't understand the hype.
