The Westside's best Neopolitan-style pies makes its debut in Hollywood. Steps from the Arclight, Stella Barra (its Santa Monica sister, formerly known as Stella Rossa) is the perfect pre and post–movie nosh stop—ropen until midnight Sunday to Thursday and until 2am Fridays and Saturdays. There's plenty of seating in the lofty space with a full bar serving local craft beers, Italian and Californian wines by the glass and bottle and creative cocktails; farmers market salads and small plates to share; and, of course, chef Jeff Mahin's top-notch pizzas, boasting a chewy, sourdough crust and California-grown toppings. Try the fennel-flavored, housemade sausage topped with organic tomato and mozzarella ($14.95) and, while you can get it, the seasonal spring onion and bacon ($15.95). We also love the signature burrata ($10.95), plated with housemade bread and tomato jam and take-away baked goods (look out for soon-to-come baguettes to-go) on display in front, from oversized Rice Krispy treats to bacon chocolate chip cookies.
Chef Jeff Mahin has developed a network of farms and purveyors to supply the restaurant with fresh-milled, 100% California flour for his handcrafted dough, as well as sustainably farmed organic produce, meats and cheeses.
From the Classic Margherita Pizza to the daily seasonal specials, fresh salads to rustic small plates including Fresh Local Burrata with wood-grilled grapes and Organic Pork Meatballs, each dish reflects Chef Mahin’s passion for sourcing the best quality, local ingredients available and presenting them simply.
To complement the menu, Stella Barra serves an extensive list of beers and ciders, carefully crafted cocktails and a wine list developed by Wine Director Ryan Arnold. The selection focuses on Italian varietals – celebrating the diversity and regionality that make Italian wines special – and also pays homage to Stella Barra’s West Coast roots, featuring a handful of California producers.
