Stella Modern Italian Cuisine specializes in fresh seasonal menus featuring local and organic ingredients when possible.

Our culinary team led by Executive Chef Josh Partain 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.

    First time there. Loved it! Our server, Chase, was attentive and friendly. Food was very good. Atmosphere was somewhat upscale but casual. Will definitely return.

    This has been one of my favorites for years and I brought a friend from out of town and it was a disappointment. The food was fair at best and cold. The server was very nice, but it just wasn’t up to par. For what we spent we were not impressed. Hope this was just a bad night.

    I love Stella and will continue to eat here. The food is good and the service is always great. What I’ve noticed recently is that the ambience and noise level have decreased. I had a reservation and we were placed in a back room and soon after we were seated a 15+ party was seated near us and our experience just based on noise level and disrespect for those around us decreased our overall date night out. One table of 4 near us moved to a completely different room because it was so loud. I felt so sorry for the couple seated right next to the group trying to enjoy their night out. It was just extremely loud and hard to hear my date sitting across from me. While I think the food is good, I go out to be able to enjoy my company, and you pay for more than just the food - ambience matters. I would like to see Stella plan their seating arrangements better with respect to their other paying customers and large groups who aren’t mindful of their surroundings. I would have loved to be in the north room or in the bar room where large groups aren’t allowed since I made my reservation over a week in advance. If you’re looking for a quiet intimate date night out, there are other better options in town to achieve that goal.

    I made a reservation which was ready for us when we both got to the restaurant. We were promptly brought water and given a few minutes to make our drink choices. As it was a date, we did a lot of talking instead of reading the menu, which was not a problem as our server was very patient with us. The food was well cooked and presented. We will be coming back in the future!

    Was nice dinner, I first ordered wine and didn’t bring it til Main course, the ceasar salad needed more dressing, and the tomahawk pork chop was delicious, but my pumpkin ravioli was underwhelming no flavor and waitress recommended it…. And she never came back after to refill waters so those were only draw back

    Stella's tomahawk pork chop is one of the best in OKC; flavorful, moist and delicious. They feature some very tasty appetizers like baked brie with fruit and meat balls in a cheesy bed. Their great service, wine list by the glass, entrees and desserts will keep bringing us back!

    Food was wrong but it was corrected but took so long my partner had completed her meal and basically my food was packed up and I never was able to enjoy it hot nor was I compensated. Great service with the waiter so he was tipped well but just didn’t like the experience…

    Wild Boar ragout with goat cheese was creamy, meat tender, pasta not overcooked but lacked flavor...bland. The salmon was cooked perfectly but not seasoned well and lacked enough capers. The wine list extensive and the Sangiovese was very nice for the price point. I would return to try pizza and dishes from appetizer menu.

    The service was not at the level we have previously experienced. The server was not particularly friendly. I had to ask for bread well after the salad was served. The salad was served well before the cocktail arrived-which I had to remind about.

    The food was just... fine. Not stellar or even great like I was expecting. Hostess was disdainful and passively rude; acted like we didn't belong there. Waitress interrupted conversation several times, and I felt like we were being rushed out. Overall, a pretty lackluster experience. Probably will not return.
