Overall great Italian cuisine accompanied by great wines. Service leaves much to be desired but overall amenable. Indoor and outdoor seating in spring & summer. Small private dining area available.

From the outside, Stella looks like an average Pizzeria not a date spot and certainly not a romantic place. The interior decor is causal and not charming but reminiscent of a neighborhood Italian trattoria.

Upon opening the menu you feel reassured you made the right choice. So many sumptuous options. Every Italian cuisine is covered. The food was solid. Nothing fancy in the presentation but hearty fulfilling food.

Service was aloof. Didn't seem too concerned about connecting with customers but language was a barrier so I give the benefit of the doubt. That being said a "thank you and goodbye" would have been nice.

Wouldn't proactively recommend but if looking for good Italian food in the area it's solid.

We go there regularly since we live nearby. Pasta and Pizze are excellent, made only with fresh and well selected products. Do not expect complex and sophisticated menu, but if you want high quality traditional Italian cuisine, this is the place! In addition, the service is very friendly and there is a lovely terrace with trees and rain protection if needed in the backyard. Top in summer!

Stella is a traditional Italian restaurant, and has regional and seasonal specialties that you don't find in many Italian restaurants in Switzerland. It has a very extensive and quite interesting menu. Prices are high, even by Swiss standards. The decor is much like you'd find in a nice grotto restaurant in a small town in Italy.

All that is good news. However, the food and service have varied greatly whenever I've gone, from excellent food/service, to below average food or downright bad service. The seasonal specialties (with truffles, asparagus, etc) are generally very good. But once, we were served a mish-mash of what was left to cook in the kitchen (instead of what we had ordered) and a recent lunch menu tasted like cafeteria food. The service is better when the elegant gentleman who seems to run the place is nearby, but I have also had outright rude waiters who served us items we didn't order and insisted we eat/drink those; or who have pointedly rushed us out, serving the mains while we still had our appetizers, and making us pay and leave while we were still finishing up.

For it's price level, Stella ought to have more consistent quality, especially the attitude towards hospitality. If it can fix that, I'd recommend it.

I went there tonight for the first time and I have to admit I spent a great evening. Friendly and caring staff, tasty food and nice atmosphere. Will definitely go back!
