Stella Barra

The sister restaurant to Summer House Santa Monica, Stella Barra looks like a dark sports bar, but is actually turning out delicious pizzas, like the fennel-heavy sausage one, which has an airy, crispy crust. Pair it with a Sicilian Highball, made with Cynar, Averna, ginger beer and lemon—basically a deeper, bitter, more delicious Moscow Mule.

Look no further than Stella Barra for your new favorite pizza spot. Stella Barra offers a chic, darker ambiance with a gorgeous back patio that is perfect for summertime. Start with a signature cocktail and the burrata appetizer, then go for the prosciutto and egg pizza, shaved mushroom pizza and my all time favorite, the smoked bacon and goat cheese pizza. Can’t decide on just one pizza? The best part about Stella Barra is that you can choose two different pizzas and make it a half-half pie. The crust is crispy and golden with a chewy center, but if that isn’t your style, opt for the “thin sin” Roman style, extra thin crust. Finally, if you are not too stuffed after your meal, head to the cookie counter on your way out and grab a chocolate chip cookie with rice crispies on top to cap off the night.

It took me until my second time here to realize there was an amazing back patio at Stella Barra. In the winter it feels like an escape and in the summer they open the retractable roof so you can enjoy the outdoors. I absolutely love sitting in that area, it's so charming. The previous review is right, the baked goat cheese is amazing!

If you're looking for a lighter more "chewy" pizza than deep dish but still need something that packs a punch of delicious flavor, then Stella Barra is your place. Two go to's: quattro formaggi and prosciutto & egg on the white sauce pizza list. Definitely start with the baked local goat cheese. The few times I have visited, there was no wait for smaller table size but you could be looking at a small wait which is expected during busy hours. The ambiance is darker and opposite of the vibes from Summer House, but still offers a comfortable and enjoyable dinner spot.
