This was a very good restaurant with attentive and knowledgable wait staff. Our food was great, olive oil on the table with the focaccia bread was delish. I especially liked the Caesar salad. The draw back is the tables are so close together you can hear everyone's conversation. We were lucky we sat outside but even then we had 3... More

We had to make last minute reservations this past weekend, and the people that we were taking to dinner wanted only a good Italian restaurant that night. LaStella's was very accommodating for our party of six, the food was truly excellent, and the service was outstanding. The restaurant is small and cozy, which my wife and I prefer, and the... More

You must stop in for their delicious culinary delights. From the flat bread to the must have grilled calamari salad --- Oh, and the meatballs. Intimate setting and fabulous family style service.

Second visit to this restaurant and it is still a favorite. The Sunday gravy is awesome! It has several meats and is topped with ricotta. The antipasto was a nice array of meats, cheeses and roasted peppers. The mussels in white sauce was not as flavorful as the red sauce that we enjoyed the last visit. The homemade bread is... More

We took our relatives there tonight on the recommendation of a friend. The experience was delightful! Service staff were friendly and considerate. The roasted beet salad was delicious. My pasta dish with pears was just the right level of sweetness. One of us had the fruitta de la Mare and it looked amazing! She loved it. Parking was easy on... More

I'm lucky enough to dine here once a week - and each time it only gets better (which is difficult challenge as each time is STELLAR). This staff is by far the best at service and dishing up culinary delights. Can't wait till next week, when we swing by yet again.

The atmosphere was great, even though the restaurant is small (there are outside tables, too.) The service was timely, and the food was excellent. I had a pizza with figs -- just try it. My husband had a seafood dish which was very good.

Description
Coming to you from Federal Hill Providence, Rhode Island; Jamie Barlow brings with her Authentic Italian and Mexican cooking using only the finest ingredients. Chef Barlow earned her double bachelors degree in Culinary and Hospitality from the Official Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island. Chef Barlow continued her education in Belgium, Europe while attending a school for Hospitality and Tourism, studying under italian chefs. With over 25+ years experience, Chef Barlow has created an extensive catering menu in which we can accommodate intimate dinners for two, or large parties of up to 3,000. Although originally meaning to be a catering only establishment, popular demand caused Chef Barlow to open her doors to the public and began serving dinner. Five years later, we have La Stella staff, past employees, and especially our customers to thank for our success. We are grateful for your loyalty. La Stella's has specialized in serving Authentic Mexican for lunch during the week and Authentic Italian every night for dinner. Using only the finest ingredients and hand selected meats, Chef Barlow has a focus on using mostly, if not all, organic ingredients. Containing 10 tables maximum indoors, La Stellas remains to be an intimate, neighborhood gem
