Stella Modern Italian Cuisine specializes in fresh seasonal menus featuring local and organic ingredients when possible. The wood burning oven is the heart of the restaurant, producing Roman style pizza and the majority of the menu. Our culinary team led by Executive Chef Josh Partain has created a modern menu using ideas that begin with traditional Italian dishes. The wine list is an interesting group of Italian and American wines personally selected by owner/operator Lori Burson.

    Wild Boar ragout with goat cheese was creamy, meat tender, pasta not overcooked but lacked flavor...bland. The salmon was cooked perfectly but not seasoned well and lacked enough capers. The wine list extensive and the Sangiovese was very nice for the price point. I would return to try pizza and dishes from appetizer menu.

    We had salad and three types of pasta. All were very good. I would not get the Stella red wine. For an Italian, it lacked body. Service was excellent.

    Came for a birthday dinner. Food was decent but not spectacular. Pasta was cold and so was our waiter. Very quiet, sleepy ambience.

    The service was not at the level we have previously experienced. The server was not particularly friendly. I had to ask for bread well after the salad was served. The salad was served well before the cocktail arrived-which I had to remind about.

    The food was just... fine. Not stellar or even great like I was expecting. Hostess was disdainful and passively rude; acted like we didn't belong there. Waitress interrupted conversation several times, and I felt like we were being rushed out. Overall, a pretty lackluster experience. Probably will not return.

    Stella's menu is really excellent from the appetizers/soups/salads, to the pizzas, to the entrees. They have an excellent, well-priced wine list, & a very extensive drink list. Service is always great, As Lori does a fantastic job of operating one of the best restaurants in OKC!!

    Went for a pre-show dinner. Started with cocktails, I had a Paloma which was probably in the top 3 palomas I've ever had. Wife had the Madrisqui which was good, if a bit strong. Appetizer was mussels. Not bad, but you only get 1 small piece of bread which was disappointing. Entrees were the pumpkin ravioli and tomahawk pork chop. Ravioli needed seasoning, past was a bit bland and so was the filling, but the pancetta and walnuts were nice. Pork chop was seasoned well but the middle was raw. Understand that tomahawk are hard to cook evenly due to their size, but it wasn't medium or even medium rare, it was cold pink. Dessert was tiramisu which, while it may have been, did not taste like it was just cut out of a froze box like some restaurants do. Overall good but not great experience, but we do plan on giving it another shot in the future.

    I did not like our dining room seating. We were in the table by the bar. Not really a relaxing place, therefore my rating for ambience. Very busy with people coming out of the kitchen by the bar. We LOVE Stella Modern Italian Cuisine. We travelled 2 1/2 hours to eat there on our trip to OKC. A table in the dining area would have been much better!

    Although we've eaten countless times at Stella, this was our first time back since the pandemic hit. We were so excited to return to one of our favorite restaurants, which just added to our disappointment. We ordered the lunch special, and nothing about it was up to Stella's standards. The salad was overdressed to the point of being gloppy, and the pizza had way too much cheese on it (and not nearly enough arugula), and sat like a lump in our stomachs for hours afterwards. I hope this was an aberration, and that things will right themselves again soon.

    Stella is my favorite Italian food. It used to be consistent service. Used to. I went 2 weeks ago with 2 close friends and the wait staff seemed annoyed by the time it took us to choose our meal. Went last night with my husband. Didn’t get any bread, offered 1/2 wine bottles but realized later I was charged for the full price. Service was just blah. I’m sad to leave this review. Tried Patrono earlier this week. The service was attentive, warm, friendly and the food was delicious…

    Atmosphere okay, but saw at least 2 men wearing gimme hats and t-shirts and women in flip flops with cheap sun dresses in what I had wrongly assumed was an upscale restaurant. Charcuterie was okay. The risotto was horrible, with excessive wateriness and a blandness that was attempted to cover up with a sprinkling of red peppers. For the prices and district, we expected a lot more, and were greatly disappointed. Don't want to visit again.

    Have dined here before many times and it’s either great or horrible. The foods always good it’s the service that’s hit or miss. This restaurant is kind of pricey for OKC, so you’d think the service would be more consistent.
