We enjoyed dining at Stella's. The featured items are always interesting and delicious. The atmosphere is nice and the service in excellent. If you want a nice place to dine, this certainly fits the bill.

Service was terrible - dishes brought out to our table at different times (both courses) so we're forced to either start at different times or else someone's food goes cold. Servers reach across patrons to serve food, and in one instance the staff handed a hot plate across the table for my wife to take (she didn't accept). Seriously -... More

I'm torn between the excellent service by our waitress (Abby) and the total incompetence of the hostess. The hostess (tall, thin lady with blonde hair) was clueless.

Stella's is much more than a really good Spaghetti Western. It's a welcoming and warm place with attentive staff, traditional Italian dishes prepared with a creative flair. My wife and I felt right at home here, it's more upscale with table cloths, low-lighting, soft-music and active bar scene. We started by sharing the Special Salad of the Day, my wife... More

Really good Italian food for Lubbock. Had fettuccine and Chicken Parm. All were very good and pretty authentic for a small west Texas town.Salad was good too
