We are all about community and supporting our neighbors & local businesses. In a society where many are likely to conform to similar ideas and ways of life, we like to support these one-of-a-kind businesses. Our world is full of large companies that offer basically the same options. The small businesses in our community provide unique and special products/skills. We bring our own personal experiences, skills and creativity to our products and respect the others in our community that do the same. It is an easy way to show that we care about the community we live in. Along with the product diversity there is also the importance of the environmental and economical benefits that small local business provide.

Stella 18 E Ridgewood Ave, Ridgewood, NJ 07450

"Stella" was conceived to offer this same heart and soul through artisan Italian offerings made by hand and served with love. While the cuisine is elevated through professional technique, the flavors and aromas remain reminiscent of mom's Italian kitchen... always warmed by true hospitality and shared with and among people we love."
