Stella's Italian is a nice change. Located near the Plaza, Stella's serves good italian food. Both indoors and a nice courtyard setting. Reasonable pricing and parking located in lot behind the building.

There are quite a few great places to eat in Taos. This is not one of them. We liked the atmosphere and the wine selection was good but the food is just not as good as it could be.

Stella’s is tucked away on a side street. It’s a great find! Very nice staff and the food was great! I will definitely visit Stella’s next time I’m in town!

We wandered into Stella's for lunch today and were pleasantly surprised by our meal, the service and the atmosphere. No one was in the restaurant when we arrived so we were a bit concerned that it wouldn't be good. Wow were we wrong! The warm...More

Stella's is a unique experience. The food is delicious, the waitstaff is friendly and helpful, and the manager is a gem. Most days opera may be the musical offering, but never at full blast. The walls are full of old Hollywood photos, and it's a...More
