I love good food and Stelle makes really good food. Their food is so good, I've tried some of their offerings at home and despite my good efforts, does not match up to what the momma whips up in the tiny kitchen. Do not be alarmed by the terrible decor, nor the old Christmas napkins. The presentation of the food is at times not desirable, especially their version of take away bags. If it were not for the good food, quality ingredients, and the good food, yes the food is that good. I especially love the pasta with seafood. Heavenly! I've tried several dishes and the pasta remains a favourite. It was the first choice for my dinner club and was a big hit with the club.

Great Italian menu in a cheap n cheerful environment. Had the atmosphere of a neglected library. We were reluctant to talk above a whisper.

Still, the service was personal & genuine albeit slow. Think Italian time.

I believe it's better at lunch time.

The food was very good. The service however was very slow. This is not the fault of the waitress. She was the only waitress in the restaurant. I recommend the owners employ at least one more person.

Since they are Northern Italians (Milanese) i tried the Risotto (artichoke) it arrived and it had a very oily smell as if it was cooked with old oil ,
I had a quarter artichoke maybe 2 quarters ,the onions were stil aldente and very large pieces, and the alcohol (cheap white wine ) had still not cooked off
This was for R100.00 a portion, i ate it with long teeth.
i am Italian , a very good cook , make a very good risotto, am in the food industry as well ,
Would rather have had a plate of spaghetti alla napoletana (with a fresh tomato sauce
or a Pizza margerita both of Southern Italian cusine
