Our dinner was barely ‘Average.’ We took a group of TxTech grads and their family members to Stella’s after grad. The way the Staff treated us was quite embarrassing. It was obvious they had over-booked. What’s worse, they tried to rush us because they wanted...More

Stella's is great place to meet friends for drinks at Happy Hour. The free pizza is good. The appetizers are good especially the Spinach Dip and Bruchetta. The Peach Bellinis are great!

I don't see a reason why not, actually it has some areas that could be close for an event, but definitely is a management question.

The original Stella's was founded in Suffern, New York, in 1973 by Billy's mother, Stella Rizzo. She opened her Deli on Airmont Road and featured the finest cuts of meat, fresh breads and Italian family recipes. Over the years, she perfected the art of authentic New York Italian cuisine. In 1998, Billy brought the "family business" to Lubbock. He opened Stella's Restaurant & Deli on 14th Street across from Texas Tech. With his mother's help, he was up and running right away, and in 2001 he purchased, completely renovated and moved the restaurant to the Steak & Ale building at 50th and Utica. Today, Stella's has grown into one of Lubbock's most popular upscale Italian restaurants, including an inviting bar and lounge area, patio seating and live entertainment on weekends. Stella's offers authentic New York Italian cuisine made fresh from family recipes.
