Stella was born in Rome when owner Lori Tyler was a sophomore in college studying abroad. She spent a semester in Rome and she fell in love with Italian food and wine, but more importantly, she was drawn to the way the Italian people focused their lives around food. Rather than simply eat a hurried meal, Italian people gather with friends and family, and every meal is a celebration. Lori decided then that she wanted to bring that philosophy back home and embody it in her own restaurant.

After spending nearly 20 years in the food service business, Lori opened Stella on April 22, 2010. Stella was always supposed to be a neighborhood restaurant and in keeping with that idea, Lori chose a location on the edge of her own Heritage Hills neighborhood so that she can live and work around friends and family. The atmosphere reflects that neighborhood feel. Guests enjoy fine dining quality food and service in a fun, relaxed ambiance. Lori likes to say that Stella offers everything from elegant dining to wine and pizza on a game night.

Stella is Modern Italian Cuisine, so you will not see some traditional dishes you might expect, but Lori offers food she is passionate about, including authentic Italian-style pizza made to order in the brick oven. Executive Chef Jonathan Krell works closely with Lori in the menu and the nightly specials, choosing on the freshest ingredients, and sourcing foods locally as often as possible. Lori and Jonathan share a simply philosophy about customer service: “The answer is yes. What’s the question?”
