    Rumor has it the owner is trying to reinvent the restaurant. This is probably true as there is no sign indicating an application for a new permitee for the liquor license.

        I agree- Stella was always good but failed to adjust prices to the economy

        With a Pepe's in New Haven and one at Mohegan Sun there is no need form more pizza joints in SE Connecticut.
