Stella Notte came highly recommended by close friends, and they almost lived up to the hype. The food was excellent, homestyle and delicious, hot and brought out quickly. But the service on this rainy Tuesday was just a tad rushed, as thought there were a line (there wasn't) or somebody was in a hurry. At the end we had to... More

Have eaten here several times in the past. Food is delicious though a bit overpriced. This time I thought the food was just ok. The veal Saltimbocca had a weird lavender cream sauce that ok. The dish was kind of blah, needed salt despite the prosciutto. Came with unsauced bow tie pasta that was just dull. The other diner liked... More

I've driven by here for years, but never stopped in to eat. Decided to try it thanks to the restaurant participating in Howard County's Restaurant Week and am I ever glad I did! Wonderful service and delicious food...especially their chicken primavera and warm homemade bread pudding! Yum!! Will definitely be back for dinner!

We go to Stella Notte at least once a month. They never fail to give us a pleasant experience and meal. The staff is incredibly nice and accommodating. I won't pick on any one employee because they are all great. Food always comes out hot and delicious. Our favorite is the Chicken Stella Notte. You will not regret coming to... More

Good meal and atmosphere. Pricey for the food level but good. The waitress said that many of the entrees are premade and not able to delete some documents success. We will come back, but not often. Great to be with friends!

This was my second time here and I was very satisfied. Great atmosphere and very good Italian food. Wonderful bread! The staff is very welcoming and the service was good. This seems to be a popular local establishment. I will definitely return!

The last time I ate at Stella Notte, I swore would never go back. The waitress brought me the wrong dish, it took forever to get her attention, and by the time I got the meal I had ordered, my wife and her friends had almost finished their food. I was so angry, I couldn't even recall afterward whether the... More

The menu is extensive with Italian specialties. There is a glass enclosed dining room that provides a special ambience. The food is delicious and the portions are huge - I usually ask for a doggie bag. We usually come early on Saturday nights (around 5 p.m.) because it gets crowded later on Saturday.

We needed to quickly find a restaurant that could accommodate 20-30 people for a lunch reception following our mother's funeral. Friends of my father's recommended Stella Notte saying it had "Great food ! Especially the gnocchi...and a lovely atmosphere." Thank goodness for word of mouth. We walked in and immediately my Dad said, "I think Mom would have liked this... More
