Let me start by saying, that La Stella is one of just a handful of restaurants in South Florida, that I will actually “discard” my shorts for and put on a pair of pants, in order to “go” eat. Now don’t get me wrong, this neighborhood hole-in-the wall joint, is not the most fancy joint in the world, but I think that its decor-food-service warrant my “gussing-up” a bit.
The food in this Southern Italian Restaurant is terrific. I recently had a stuffed veal chop valdostanta that was as good as any that I have ever eaten. This joint makes some absolutely delicious pastas, fish and meat main dishes. I have eaten in this joint three times and steak pizzaiola and lobster tail fra diavolo entrees were delicious. Just so you know, all entrees come with a soup or salad and a pasta side. La Stella’s prices are “give or take” a few dollars more than the local mom and pop joints that dot the South Florida landscape.
La Stella is open Saturday-Sunday for dinner. Try this joint, it is an absolute “gem.”
