A friend gave Stella's an enthusiastic recommendation, so we figured we'd give it a shot.

This is a quiet, romantic spot with wonderful, homemade offerings. There is a self-serve antipasti bar at one end of the restaurant. The theme of the restaurant is the 1940's and the music playlist is from that era; the tables are set with red/white check...More
