Stella Modern Italian Cuisine specializes in fresh seasonal menus featuring local and organic ingredients when possible. The wood burning oven is the heart of the restaurant, producing Roman style pizza and the majority of the menu. Our culinary team led by Executive Chef Chris McKenna has created a modern menu using ideas that begin with traditional Italian dishes. The wine list is an interesting group of Italian and American wines personally selected by owner/operator Lori Burson.

    It was a very restaurant, but $14 for a green mixed salad and some dressing was a bit overrated. The staff was nice and it was quiet, but that was due to the lack of customers at that time.

    Saturday brunch at Stella's was very nice. The menu was mainly just lunch items which was a little disappointing but our food was not disappointing. We all ordered salads with additional protein. The salmon was grilled to perfection! Bloody Mary's were also excellent!

    We love Stella, but I hate feeling like other tables are sitting at mine. Yesterdays meal was great, despite the very loud and distracting political debate happening at the table adjacent to ours. I’ll still be back, because the food outweighs the rest

    Always excited to go to Stella when I’m OKC. This time it was just a bit off in my opinion. Menu was kind of tired and the pasta dish that I’ve had and loved before was kind of watery and a little bland.

    The pasta with Italian sausage was pretty bland, we won’t order that again. The house Italian Pinot Grigio was very good. The spicy pasta was wonderful. The bread was wonderful! Our waitress was great! She was able to increase the frigid temperature that was set at 67 degrees to a more comfortable 70 degrees.. Thanks for a lovely meal and visit.

    Easily best Italian experience on the Fort Worth side of the metroplex. Walk in the door and you are transported into a swank Cafe in Italy. Truly exceptional cuisine, restaurant layout, and management. Well executed folks!

    Our reservation was honored, the host and server were attentive. The restaurant decoration was very nice and we enjoyed the beautiful flowers on the table. However the food did not met our expectations. I personally did not like the pizza dough, my wife's risotto was too "runny" and did not have the right consistency, and my daughter's pizza had some flavors combination that there were not of our liking.

    Server was fantastic. Loved that for the picky eater (me), when asking for no onions on lentil salad, he asked if it was an allergy or taste concern bc of lentils being cooked w onions. Very thoughtful! He was just all around friendly

    Our table was scheduled for 6.15 and was available as soon as we walked in ten minutes early. Quickly greeted by Averie our waitress, she was excellent, anticipated all needs, very informative about menu and her recommendations were spot on. We had the brie and a pizza as appetizers. Both were excellent the main courses were the savory duck which was very good, The chicken s was also tasty, was actually too much pasta. Our two desserts were the lemon cheesecake and candy bar. Both were excellent as was the wine. Very enjoyable dinner for the three of us. Will always request Averie as our waitress and will make Stella's a regular stop We were allowed to visit and were never rushed. Very nice comfortable experience

    Very nice, happy place... and our Host/Bartender/Waitress incredibly outstanding. Our meals were pure perfection! We will be bac, TY Stella! Quick note : For profoundly hard of hearing, if conversation is important, ask to sit in the back area (much quieter) the front area makes dinner talk a little bit challenging ppl like myself due to the fan/bar activity.

    Absolutely fantastic. Perfect location in midtown. Every item is fairly priced. I had the Italian Meats pizza and it was cooked to perfection. My wife had the spinach ravioli and loved every bite of it. I will definitely be back. The cocktails and wine list were both also very good.
