Stella's Italian is a nice change. Located near the Plaza, Stella's serves good italian food. Both indoors and a nice courtyard setting. Reasonable pricing and parking located in lot behind the building.

There are quite a few great places to eat in Taos. This is not one of them. We liked the atmosphere and the wine selection was good but the food is just not as good as it could be.
