Dinner was excellent. The Sunday Gravy was great. The eggplant parm was really excellent. They serve Italian bread with little side bowls of cheese, salt, spices. Quite good. Service was ok. Nice little wine list. We live in the area and will return.

To make it short this restaurant should not be missed. Every dish spectacular. Apparently it has been this good for at least the past 19 years. Mahi Mahi outstanding.

This was a very good restaurant with attentive and knowledgable wait staff. Our food was great, olive oil on the table with the focaccia bread was delish. I especially liked the Caesar salad. The draw back is the tables are so close together you can...More

Coming to you from Federal Hill Providence, Rhode Island; Jamie Barlow brings with her Authentic Italian and Mexican cooking using only the finest ingredients. Chef Barlow earned her double bachelors degree in Culinary and Hospitality from the Official Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island. Chef Barlow continued her education in Belgium, Europe while attending a school for Hospitality and Tourism, studying under italian chefs. With over 25+ years experience, Chef Barlow has created an extensive catering menu in which we can accommodate intimate dinners for two, or large parties of up to 3,000. Although originally meaning to be a catering only establishment, popular demand caused Chef Barlow to open her doors to the public and began serving dinner. Five years later, we have La Stella staff, past employees, and especially our customers to thank for our success. We are grateful for your loyalty. La Stella's has specialized in serving Authentic Mexican for lunch during the week and Authentic Italian every night for dinner. Using only the finest ingredients and hand selected meats, Chef Barlow has a focus on using mostly, if not all, organic ingredients. Containing 10 tables maximum indoors, La Stellas remains to be an intimate, neighborhood gem
