We stopped in for lunch while traveling through Taos. The minestrone soup was the most beautiful presentation I have ever seen. The vegetables were so fresh and plentiful in the soup and quite tasty. The chicken parmigiana was delicious and beautifully presented as well. Well worth a visit.

Great menu and very accommodating host. Food was very good and the dinning room was a place to discover your past film stars.

Enjoyed the food and the homey ambience at Stella's. It's our favorite place to eat whenever we visit Taos, NM. The free pickle table with a variety to choose from is exciting, but the Eggplant Parmesan with angel hair pasta is our favorite.

My family ate at Stella's our first night in Taos and had a very enjoyable experience. It is very cozy with a pleasant atmosphere, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Everyone in my family ordered pasta dishes, and they were all very good. Highly recommended!

Hungry after skipping lunch and this filled us up. Delicious salad which we split. Pasta primavera was very good as was the pasta with Italian sausage. Staff was friendly & efficient without being pushy. Nice atmosphere on a cold evening.

We dined there last month. Food and service good as usual. We dined inside because of the cold weather. In spring and summer we prefer to sit on the portal. My Pasta with Italian sausage was superb, my wife's fish with Pontchartrain sauce .lĺ was better than the pasta dish. Desserts are top of the line.

I'm a local and go here once in a while. Sweet little place, but the food I've had has been inconsistent. Absolutely love their lemon chicken dish, but found the spaghetti not so great. Good service.
