Al & Stella were Born in Italy
They came from Rimini Italy, near Bologna, in northern Italy, although Al was born in Southern Italy. Their first restaurant, Al & Stella’s, was started on Indian Rocks Beach, 10 years ago. Daughter, Libera worked in the restaurant (with no pay of course) since the age of 12 years old, pretty much every day. 7 years ago they moved the restaurant to Clearwater Beach. Their huge success led them to open a second location In 2015, on Sand Key Beach. Libera continued to work along side Stella learning how to prepare fresh homemade pasta, signature sauces and special whole fresh fish entrees. Today, Libera, has learned how to do everything in the restaurant from serving customers to ordering supplies, fine wines and managing the entire business. She has developed great customer service skills and has used her eye for beauty to decorate the restaurant giving the ambience of old world charm and style while creating a menu with a friendly budget.
Al & Stella’s serves authentic, fresh, homemade Italian Pasta made from scratch, as well as home baked breads and fresh caught fish cooked to perfection. Gluten free pasta is available upon special request! Al and Stella’s charming fine dining restaurant with white table cloths is decorated to make you feel as if you are really in Italy.
