As we arrived my grand daughter 4 years old and me over sixty. There was a baseball game on screens and the ambiance was like a resto bar kind. Excellent service and the food was simply great, Good choice of wine by the glass. I strongly recommend this restaurant for "pizza amateur ".

This is cute place with wide variety of pizza, with choice of thin or regular crust, everything is very fresh and made to order. They forgot to put cheese on our first order and waitress noticed apologized and had them retire a whole new pizza. We will be back when in the area.

An early Sunday evening saw us here for pizza and a beverage, and this place hit the spot. The pizzas were full of flavour and the beer variety available on tap was awesome. We sat at the bar and interacted with the staff when they weren't too busy. The atmosphere was great and the location in Santa Monica cannot be... More

I'm told 'ambience' matters! Well this place has plenty of it. A huge rectangular bar with high tables and booths, big screens and music. A great choice of beers, the salads are big enough for two and the pizzas are thin, crispy and well loaded. Great value for money. If I'm ever back in Santa Monica I'll definitely be stopping...

The mushroom pizza still perfect and the margarita and pepperoni pizzas were very good as well. We ordered a lot of pizza with plans to bring some... More

We fancied a casual dinner with the kids and the concierge recommended Stella Barra. If you arrive before 7pm it's happy hour and some appetizers and drinks are very good value. The pizzas are very nicely made and one is perfect for two to share. The atmosphere is very chilled - all in all a good place and worth a... More

It is not a very big place and a large section is filled up by the bar but the pizza is fantastic. It does take a little bit to make (and get) but the dough is made fresh daily and you can watch them being made. The service was a little bit slow but the bartender was great while we... More

We were jet lagged and stumbled on this place round the corner from the hotel. Bit nervous of ordering a gluten free pizza but when it came so thin and so tasty and not like card board The "normal" pizza apparently was done to perfection too! Good service and good value for money

The pizza was good, however the starter was burnt, they did offer a replacement but we were put off. Service was a little poor like most reviews.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
