Best of Boston

2002 Best Romantic Restaurant, West


Stellina will gently coax you into warm receptivity with its quirky, comfortable atmosphere, seductive northern Italian fare (think figs baked with gorgonzola and toasted walnuts), and inviting wine list. Of course, a grapevine-lined patio with gurgling fountain (and close proximity to the Charles River for a postdinner stroll) doesn’t hurt. Attractive pricing means this is a date worth repeating.
