Make sure you book reservations promptly as they tend to run out quickly. While the restaurant is cozy, it's atmosphere and menu offerings are generous and ample. This was my second visit and this time my teens came out to enjoy. Stella's transports you across...More

Stella’s is a favorite of ours, with consistently delicious Greek fare and a lovely, inviting ambience. That said, beware of the vacuum created by the restaurant’s efforts to seal the door for climate control purposes. I have sensitive inner ears and noticed as soon as...More

Well done food, need better service and wine. Location is well and nothing impressive about decoration or history.

We were driving down I-95 and found this place on TAdvisor and, man, I'm glad we did. One of the best lunches we've had in a good while. The vegetarian options were plentiful and everything was very flavorful. The service was better than average. If...More
