    This is a great spot for inventive salads and thin crust pizzas. Good wines by the glass as well as decent beer selections. As always, parking in Hollywood is tricky, but one can usually snag a spot on Ivar Street.

    This place has skyrocketed to my favorite pizza joint in the area. The drinks here are good (some cool beers available here) and the appetizers are really good. But the pizza is what takes the cake. Their breakfast pizza is unique (chilaquiles on pizza, who knew?) and the regular pizzas are amazing (the spinach-kale is by far my favorite). Definitely recommending this place.

    Early dinner before a movie. Reservations for two. Seated immediately. Waiter was friendly and professional. Started with charcuterie plate which was tasty. Beer from the tap tasted stale. Waiter happily replaced it with a bottled beer. Much better. Shared the margherita pizza. Decent crust, but otherwise quite flavorless. Might try again for a quick bite before a show, but won't be expecting much if we do.

    We've seen restaurants come and go in this spot near the Arclight in Hollywood. Stella Barra seems to have hit it right. Friendly service, good pizzas, a few good veggie dishes and a big open space makes this a fun casual dining place. It is mainly all pizza, but if you don't feel like that, brussels sprouts and the meatball sides make a nice little meal. I also liked the cauliflower but left off the jalapeno pesto since I am not a fan of hot. We generally do half and half on the pizza, wish we had with the Fennel one. It is good, but the whole pizza with fennel got to be a bit much. Our favorite are all the cookies you can choose for dessert, including the rice krispy treats! The apple oatmeal cookie reminds us of a apple crisp.

    Stella Barra finally revamped their menu to make it more robust and they have added more veggies to the menu - a plus for my non-meat eating friends. We asked for our three dishes to come out at the same time but that didn't happen - we ordered veggie dishes...not sure why they could not timed that out right. The food quality has definitely improved and this place is now back on the list of restaurants I will visit after having fallen off for a year.

    Booked reservations before the Pantages show. Walked in and our table was ready. No waiting. Great atmosphere. Fantastic cocktails. I had a Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Refreshing gin and blackberry drink. We had a chopped salads which we shared, and a smoked bacon and goat cheese pizza, a margarita pizza, the antipasto plate, wonderful bread, . Probably the best pizza I've had in a very long time. We also ordered the roasted cauliflower. Wow!!! There were 5 of us and we were all in agreement. Fantantastic!!! The server was polite, attentive. Just an all around great dining experience. We have season tickets to the Pantages. This is our NEW PLACE for dinner before the show.

    Had some appetizers before a movie. We thought the cauliflower could have used more sauce and thought the calamari was a little dry with an aioli sauce that that was a little too thick. Both were okay but nothing special.

    I was in Los Angeles recently and needed to find a place for dinner on the fly. Opentable told me that Stella Barra was close by, and I decided to give it a whirl. From the moment I arrived with my friend, the service was impeccable. I also really liked the décor, and I was told that the music playlist that I kept grabbing songs from was the owner's own. We took our time, and despite the fact we arrived for a fairly late seating, we were never rushed in the slightest. I had two cocktails, both of which were well-crafted, and my companion had a glass of red which paired perfectly with our pizza. The food, both entrée and dessert, was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant!

    Visiting from the SF bay area, we found this place on Yelp after reserving seats for a movie at ArcLight. Couldn't have been happier. Fun atmosphere, awesome food, great service... wish we could go back often. We had the warm goat cheese appetizer and two pizzas. One was the cheese-less thin-crust (I can't recall the name) and the other was the butternut squash pizza. Sooooo good! We shared the chocolate / fleur de cel cookie, warmed. Yummy

    We went the first time a few years ago - the restaurant was empty! But the food was really good. We have been three times since, and every time it is more crowded, and now hard to get a table. The food is simple, but really really good. Great for pre or post Arclight movies.

    Don't let the gourmet ingredients scare you away. I'm a slightly picky eater and upon my first visit, I had incredibly refreshing cocktails, pizza that didn't leave me feeling stuffed for hours, unique seasonings, and attentive service. My gf and I were fortunate to be able to walk right in and leave just in time to see our movie at Arclight. I made a reservation online and invited 3 out of town friends (NYC and Norway) who raved about it as much as we did. One pizza easily makes two people feel satisfied. They can divide the pizza up with half and half sauces. Our waiter went out of his way to make it a great experience. I will most likely book reservations before a movie because it leads to an incredibly fun and hassle free night.

    I love pizza. It's a guilty pleasure for me and for my whole family. After a ridiculous, loud, summer blockbuster at the Arclight we head straight for Stella Barra and it does not disappoint. The service is super friendly, the tables are comfortable, drinks and wine are great, BUT the pizza is outstanding. The thin crust is crispy and the toppings are fresh and original. The menu is limited, but what few items they have, are delicious. The brussel sprouts are crispy and savory. My ten year old boy loved the pepperoni and the fact that the chairs are all different. It's nice and energetic, TV's blasting baseball, tourists, and locals all enjoying a family friendly fun night of carb loading that is totally and completely worth every calorie.

    My friend and I had lunch here before our matinee at the Pantages. We split a salad and a margarita pizza. Loved the crisy thin crust, but overall the pizza lacked flavor. The sauce seemed to be plain tomato sauce. There were a total of 6 basil leaves on top (for 8 slices) and the entire thing needed seasoning. Our salad was better - arugula, kale and dates with a tiny bit of parm cheese. I had to ask for a refill on my ice tea when our service lost some interest in us after getting a second table.

    We got to a screening early at the theaters next door and Pizza sounded good. They were very nice, but this is not a place to take kids, the waitresses were dressed scantily, and not dressed for serving a client. The food was good, but 3 personal sized pizza's for $70 was costly. The ambiance for the night was upbeat and fun. But this is really a place for young people over 21 to go on a date. If you don't care about how much you spend on a meal, and want to be trendy and self important, this is a good place for you. For us, it was not a good fit.

    We went here for dinner before we walked over to the Book of Mormon at the Pantages. We ordered the Margarita, Mushroom, Sausage and bacon and goat cheese pizza. My favorite were the Sausage and Bacon goat cheese. Food came out pretty quickly, the pizzas are delicious, and the crust is prob one of the best I've had, crispy and chewy on the inside. We also had the roasted brussel sprouts which were also yummy. They have a pretty good happy hour for drinks, I got a $5 wine. I was expecting the place to be pretty loud, but it was actually pretty laid back, great for a group to share a few pizzas. I would definitely come back.
