We've eaten here at least 50 times over the last ten years. It's a neighborhood gem. Pasta is made in house and always cooked perfectly. My favorite pasta dishes are the tagliatelle bolognese (best I ever had), the orchiette with sausage, and the gnocchi. The...More

Stella turned out to be a good choice for an evening meal close to our Boston accommodations. We were warmly greeted at the entrance and taken to our table with special concern for the grand kids. The menu offered something for everyone. I especially enjoyed...More

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. I had beef carpaccio, seafood risotto, and the best cream brûlée. Prices is fear.

The wife and I went hear on our last night of our Boston visit. We were not let down, this place had great wine and even better food. I would definitely go back.

Stopped by for an impromptu dinner with coworkers on a Tuesday evening. We got seated right away. Service was a little slow, but was friendly, and the Bolognese made it worth the wait.

We were placed by the bathrooms because we did not have a reservation. I felt as if we were being punished. Overall food was great, but felt it was pricey. I was an easy $100 night for two.

Must try the short rib, gig, blue cheese, arugula, and balsamic pizza. Also Short Rib Pasta and cream sauce was amazing. The ribs were tender, packed with flavor and perfectly complemented by the pasta and sauce. Great staff - sat at the back bar. Thanks...More

God, I loved the place. It was very quiet, given the number of people who were at the bar and my friend and I had a very nice, very productive and fun conversation.
