We stayed at a hotel nearby, and this restaurant was a convenient option for dinner after we had arrived in the evening. The place was getting busy, but we got a table, and even if we had to wait a little for service it was okay. The décor is quite eccentric in this place, and gave us lots of things... More

We have eat 3 times now at La Stella, twice in the evening in a large group and, once at dinner time, The food and service has been good, prices reasonable, and they always made us feel welcome even in a large group quite late on. We will be back there again.

We arrived with a fairly large party without a reservation, but they made room for us, even though it was crowded. They provided a small free appetizer. Great selection of pizza and some standard plates. Very good value.

Good food, nice staff, a bit oldish from inside but a true piece of Italy. The pizza and the carbonara was fantastic after a long trip.

Italy just never ceases to amazes me. A little fairly average looking place. Ideally located near the hotel. Had the spag carbonara and colleague had tortellini. Both were just amazing, flavorful and tasty. wine was good and the other courses we had were excellent. And the whole bill was just 60 euros. Fab.

Really really good food considering the place looks somewhat unappealing from outside. Perhaps that adds to the charm. Fast service, wide menu with almost any and every pizza imaginable. No tourists really, packed with locals and a very pleasing crowd at that. Its just a few minutes walk from the Ducati factory so if you re in the area, its... More

The customer I was visiting suggested this as a place to eat a good local dinner. Since I was just around the corner at the Hotel Amadeus I walked over for dinner. Walking is in through the plastic door on the sidewalk into the covering over the sidewalk and into a small deli. This is a small mom and pop... More

We found this place at random after a visit to the Ducati factory, which is just down the road. It was full of locals. The pizza I had was great, and my friend said his pasta was some of the best he had on the whole trip. The people working there were very friendly, the house red wine was good,... More
