Good restaurant with a cool Italian deli. Worth the trip. Service was a bit slow for the crowd but it was worth the it. Quality of food outweighed the slow service. Worth it for the area.

A friend of mine from the town invited me to this local Italian restaurant. What a great place. Nothing gorgeous, nothing luxurious. Just nice, just comfortable. Great foods at warm and friendly ambient. Really enjoyed it.

We were looking for a place to eat and saw the sign for Stefano's advertising wood-fired pizza. It was a blustery night and Italian food sounded like a good idea. Walking in the ambience was perfect. Beautiful back bar with patrons in each stool greeted...More
