    Stella is willing to accommodate a large brunch group and your coffee won't run dry—they serve an affordable brunch and a pricier, but generously portioned dinner. Outdoor seating, blankets available.

    Modern twists on classic Italian fare. With its outdoor seating, Stella is a great place for summer dining. Stop by Mon-Fri from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. for discounted appetizers. Read more

    MUSSELS!!!! Saffron cream sauce so delicious, that I literally used my spoon to consume the dish as though it was soup :) swordfish is pretty damn good too.

    Great place. Had the three course meal for $40. Generous portions, delicious food. The best I've had in Boston! And their tiramisu is fantastic!

    Stella offers up all-white decor and a stylish scene. Come for the simple Italian fare (grilled pizza, pasta) and stay for the cocktails. Read more

    The gnocci here was better than... It melted in my mouth and melted me. Make sure you have reservations and wear something fun. Fantastic date spot.

    Haven't had a bad meal here. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Roasted chicken is a fave of mine. A little salty but still tasty

    Stella is one of Boston's hottest hotspots, but her prices won't make you sweat - it's an oasis of affordability in a pricey neighborhood. Sip an oversized drink and dine on Italian comfort food.

    Try the Stella breakfast sandwich, with scrambled egg. It's delicious! And you can sub out the side greens to fruit or fries.

    The back room is great to hold a private event. I hosted a home-buying class here and the staff was amazing.

    This place is off-the charts awesome. I had the halibut and it completely kicked my ass and will kick yours. Trust me. One of the best restaurants in the city.

    Best bet, sit at the bar. Bartenders are super friendly and attentive. Ask for April or Steven.

    New $5 appetizer menu in the bar and on patio 4-6pm weekdays is the bomb. I suggest the steak tartare and mussels.

    Very busy on a Sat night. More than busy, overbooked. First dining room is quite noisy, the inner one is much quieter. Waiters took too long to service and take note, but food was excellent.

    Whatever you do, get the carpaccio. Amazing. And get here early because you have to put names in for actual bar seating. Worth the wait.
