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.

We visited our son at Texas Tech and just happened upon this place. The subs were great and the wait staff could not have been more helpful. We will be back for the pizza. The folks sitting next to us said that it was the...More
