Had a fantastic time. Servers/hosts were very nice. Location was great and we were distanced from other tables. Our server even gave us a free cookie at the end since it was our first time!

There were lots of tables outdoors at this restaurant.
It was a bit chilly but there were portable heaters to solve
this problem.

Our server was friendly and attentive.

The food we ordered was only mediocre.
They specialize mainly in pizza. They have two types-
regular crust and very thin crust. We ordered the thin crust
but it was very disappointing. There was no substance to this pizza.
The taste was nondescript.

Not certain if I will return.

We were tempted by the new Penne Carbonara, but should have stuck with our usual pizza and salad selection. We found the pasta to be watery and totally lacking in the richness you expect with this dish. Thankfully the pizza (Spicy Salumi & Burrata) was as delicious as always.

The space is undergoing renovation so not ideal surroundings at the moment.

Stick with the pizza!

The waiter would not leave us alone and was very intrusive. We felt rushed. Our appetizer came and then under five minutes later our pizza came.

Very happy with this wine bar and pizza place that has some indoor dining as well as outdoor seating. Excellent pizza, good wine list. Enjoyed the music and atmosphere. Nice, friendly service on Main Street in Santa Monica. Easy walk to shopping and the beach.

Everything was great. Service, food and outdoor seating were all very satisfying. Only recommendation is to offer black napkins as an option. We will indeed be coming back.

From beginning until the end everything was great. We had a reservation and got seated right away. We were taken care of right away and the food arrived fairly quickly. Most importantly the food was fresh and good. The spicy salumi and burrata pizza was really good.

GO HERE!!!!! This place was amazing. The hosts and waiters were so nice and the ambiance was cool too! I got the Margherita pizza and it was soooooo good. I highly recommend it. I am a hardcore Margherita pizza fan so I have had a lot of different Margherita pizzas and this one was one of the best I have ever had! I loved this place, I highly recommend it!

Stella Barra delivers good value for the outdoor COVID diner. Combines consistent, thoughtful service, with a strong, select menu. You don't get overwhelmed by choice, but what is left, is all good. The Brussels sprouts and a spicy marguerita are new favorites.

A friend was in town and I booked a table for what ever was open in the are. The service was amazing and the staff was doing a great job at keeping non paying passing through pedestrians out of the dining area. They check your temperature at check in at the reception desk. Super friendly staff and the food was great for the price. I ordered the meat lover pizza, it was on the thin size but they do offer two types of pizza. I must have ordered the super thing crust. Will come back for a casual outing.

I think this whole movement to overcharge people who want to go out to eat is ridiculous. Menu prices are up 30 percent, adding new 4 percent covid surcharges, and ordering a side of pizza sauce at a pizza place for dipping is now an extra charge. It's getting out of hand. Soon you will see people avoiding these restaurants due to exorbitant fees.

They can usually do some type of vegan pizza. This time it was just bread and arugula. Took it home and added to it.
