Restaurant Impossible - Stella's Italian Restaurant - CLOSED

Stella's Italian Restaurant Restaurant Impossible

Chef Robert Irvine visits Stella's Italian Restaurant in Stratford, Connecticut, to help owner Michael and his mother Camille, he is working 90 hours a week in the restaurant but the restaurant that they have owned for 15 years is still failing and losing money

Michael does not know how to run a restaurant, he has poor leadership skills and has no idea about the finances of the restaurant including his food costs. The food is poor as they attempt to cut corners including failing to properly drain the pasta so every dish ends up soupy. They believe they are being propped up by the catering side of the business but they are also losing money there. The menu and decor desperately need Robert's help. 

What Happened Next?

In the months after the show was filmed, sales were up 20% and Camille was more involved with the restaurants finances. Michael has continued to develop his management skills and the customers love the new food and decor of the restaurant. The restaurant went out of business in August 2014 and reviews prior to closure were mostly positive.
