I first had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant last week. My brother stumbled upon it by accident. Fine wine, ,delicious pasta fagioli, great salad with gorgonzola, and the best eggplant I have ever eaten. It wasn't bitter and the cheese was magnifico! Am looking forward to going there this evening.
This is a great, family owned, traditional Italian family restaurant in the heart of a revived downtown Chandler. They have all the classics and great Naples-styled pizzia, but they also have some unique offerings and specials. You have to try the sweet potato ravioli with gorganzola cream sauce!
We had a nice dinner at La Stalla. It has nice ambience inside and good homemade pasta options. We both tried the dinner specials and it was very nice. Good wait staff.
We had a really great dinner here and will be back! The food was excellent, our server was fantastic, and the atmosphere and faux Italian coziness of the place was just what I needed after a long stressful week. We had a stracciatella with grape tomatoes to start paired with some San Giovese wine which I loved. It was dry velvety rusty and rasberry - made me very happy. For Secondi I had a gorgonzola primivera salad which consisted of sliced green apples, grapefruit and (walnuts?). My gorgeous man had some seasonal veggies with olive oil, sea salt and pepper. For our entrees I had a Penne with tomato sauce and eggplant. It was so fantastic. Hot and tangy and the pasta was perfect, there were tiny bits of eggplant here and there with such a great texture. It's so easy to overcook eggplant. This eggplant was not mushy nor too firm. The boyfriend had some gnocchi with asiago cheese = cheese potato pockets of goodness. I stole more than one taste across the table. They were pillowy and the granular cheesiness paired well with the soft texture of the gnocchi. I almost wished I ordered it but was quite happy with my penne.
The tiramasu is so creamy and the creme brulee... too good for words. My mouth waters just thinking about it. Ummm cant wait to go back.
My husband and I rate La Stalla in our top 10 couple places we love to go in Chandler! It is actually number 1 I love coming here we come here every chance we get.
My husband and I go periodically and have always had a great experience. We love local restaurants and abhor chain restaurants!
My only complaint would be that the portion sizes are too big. I ate too much but I guess I cant blame them haha. I would have been happy if the entree were half the size it was but nope and i ended up eating it all. Too much of a good thing.
I have had countless meals at La Stalla and have never once been let down. It offers a true Italian experience with unique flavors to be paired with great wine. The staff and atmosphere is very welcoming. This is a great date night location!
"My experience that I had was a fine one.
To begin, The feeling and looks of the whole place were great. The people were kind. My fellow friends did not quite enjoy there service the first time. The next time they gave the place another go was a different story. They got a waiter or waitress, and they were quite pleased with service. As was I.
The food was amazing! Go there as soon as you get the chance!"
