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.

    Dissatisfied with the service. No smile, not any extra effort into our service, seemed like she really wasn’t happy when we didn’t order alcohol. Based the on the service, we won’t be back. The food was good. If you’re someone that doesn’t have celiac disease, I highly recommend the food. It was delicious. They do have gluten free items clearly marked on the menu but lack many items that could really enhance the menu. My wife has celiac disease which can make going to a restaurant challenging. My recommendation to the chef and owner. If you’re going to include gluten free items on the menu consider adding a gluten free pasta and/or pizza crust(crust can also be used for toast points on appetizers).

    Service was prompt and attentive. We could tell our server was very experienced and professional. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The Italian theme of the restaurant may be over stated, as we didn’t see it consistently in the meal.

    Food is always amazing… Ambience is good but if I’m being honest, service is probably average. At a place as nice as this, with a price point as high as it is, I always expect the service to be better but it’s not stellar. We didn’t have bad service, but basic things like not rushing your guest when they’re trying to decide a beverage or not interrupting people or not able to tell us the special… Hal Smith restaurants by far always exceed service expectations & expect others to be the same but they’re not

    Stopped on our way through town on a road trip. Cool atmosphere. Bar and patio looked amazing but with kids we elected to sit at a table. A lot couples sat there and the chairs looked amazing. A bit warm to sit outside today. Nice party room off to the side for bigger groups. Staff was pleasant and friendly. We met one of the owners and she briefly sat with us and offered cool places to see while were visiting. The food was good to great. We did have an issue with one of our entrees and they made it right. The desserts could compete with most any restaurant. Limoncello cheesecake takes 48 hours to make! We would definitely recommend a stop at Stella’s!

    Stella is my wife's fave, and it's pretty much the same for me. The food is always prepared nicely, very tasty and the service is likewise topnotch. When the weather permits, the outdoor patio is a fine spot to view the goings on of Midtown. The owner is usually present which means things are run well. Can't go wrong at Stella.

    Love love love Stella! We make it a must for any time we're in OKC. Try the spinach ravioli or one of their signature pizzas. The bar scene is fun and Van, the bartender, is ready to pour your favorite cocktail or recommend a nice wine. We skipped dessert and went for chocolate martinis!

    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!

    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.
