Stella Barra Pizzeria & Wine Bar is an artisanal pizzeria with an eclectic menu inspired by the idea of simple honest cooking paired with top quality ingredients. From Chef/Partner Jeff Mahin and Executive Chef Ben Goodnick, the recently revamped concept highlights seasonal antipasti, pastas, and tavern-style pizzas, alongside an expanded wine list featuring large format wine pours and porrons. Stella Barra’s new menu goes beyond just a pizzeria by adding artisanal antipasti dishes, fresh salads, seasonal vegetables, tavern-style pizzas, and pastas. Utilizing the freshest, local ingredients to prepare high quality simple dishes is a top priority for the Stella Barra team; even the tomatoes are locally canned in the fields of California. Handcrafted breakfast items, fresh pastries and a selection of breads are available for carryout from the Market counter.

The sausage pizza could have been better. The calamari was good.

Great food, excellent service. I'm never a fan of TVs in a restaurant bar, but at least there are few enough that one can ignore them. Food better than expected.

The room is pleasant and open--industrial chic but with a lot of natural light and a few chandeliers for decoration--and the service was absolutely fine, but the food needs a lot of work. My husband's caccio e pepe pasta dish featured clumps of chewy cheese and a pool of water at the bottom of the bowl. I ordered a chopped salad with chicken. The chicken was a rubbery square of something that only vaguely resembled chicken. It was flavorless, tasted as if it had been cooked weeks in advance, and the kitchen didn't even take the trouble the cut it up. We were at the restaurant because we had tickets to a movie at the Arclight Theater next door and didn't want to be rushed. Unfortunately, Stella Barra's convenient location doesn't make up for the bad cooking.

Great place. I HIGHLY suggest this place. Coming from Chicago I expected the quality I get at all lettuce entertain you places. Boy we did and more. Manager Roy great guy chatted with us made us and our son feel special. Server Susan was awesome everything she suggested was outside what I would normally get and was on point and tasty.

It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t a place I would rave about. Had the margarita pizza and it was kinda bland. The service was good and it was cute in there but a little loud.

I had been wanting to go to their location in Venice for the longest time, and since had tix to the Pantages, going to the Hollywood location made sense. They have happy hour from 4-6pm, and I would recommend that as the prices are more reasonable. I ordered their mushroom pizza, and the taste was OFF completely. It just tasted weird (the gruyere cheese was not good), and bland. If you decide to eat at Stella Barra, stick to the more basic pizzas (such as Margherita), as the chances of screwing up is less. Don't go for the more fancy sounding ones, as they won't be as you expect. I won't be visiting again.

They changed their pizza sauce. Why mess with a working formula. Tastes like pasta sauce now. Not good.

SB has really slipped. Our usual go-to menu items were disappointing and poorly prepared. The kitchen seems to have lost it's spark and the service was awful. A side of chicken on our chopped salad was rubbery and without flavor. The tomato jam pizza sauce was bland and lacked the intensity we've had before. All in all, a disappointing meal and we may not come back.

Great location for a decent meal before or after a movie at the Arclight. Food was very good (spicy wings were great, salted chocolate chip cookie was delicious). Service was friendly but a little slow.

This is a perfectly located and well thought out restaurant next to Arclight Hollywood. Food is exactly to be expected, ambience nice. Great place to meet friends for quick and easy, not to mention well priced, food and drinks in Hollywood before or after seeing a movie.

The best place to get food before seeing a movie. They have a limited selection of food, strictly just pizza and appetizers, but they do have one vegan pizza option and a great wine selection.

Dinner was perfect. Nice lively ambience without being too loud. Delicious chopped salad, and the butternut squash pizza was the best pizza I’ve ever had. Light and savory. Delicious! I’ll be back.

Needed to grab a bite before going to watch a film at the Arclight and Stella Barra was right there. I appreciated that the menu was quite extensive with many different offerings to please the table. The food was very good - we had a caesar and pizza split between the red sauce Rossa and white sauce Avocado & Arugula Pesto and it was excellent. There are so many options in regards to toppings, crust, and flexibility to mix. Highly recommend the dipping sauce trio. Then, to top it off, we had a chocolate chip cookie at the end. Super pleased. Staff excellent! Wish I had one down the street from me.

We really enjoyed our meal here. On a Friday night and it was crowded. With a reservation we were seated promptly. Great to have parking available at the Arclight parking garage. Food was very good. We really liked the calamari appetizer. The butternut squash pizza was excellent. And the kale Caesar was fine, although not terribly distinctive. And one of their excellent home-baked cookies for desert. We felt the portions were a little small-ish for the prices. Particularly the calamari. For $16, I'd like to see a small mountain of squids. But the pizza was truly delicious, service solid, and we had a good time on a Friday evening.

Food did not come out at the same time. Was told when ordering that Pizza may take up to 1/2 hr so ordered an appetizer of Crispy Brussels Sprouts and my companion ordered the Special Crispy Artichoke Hearts. As this was all we ordered and we ordered each as our dish, felt it was really poor to have the Artichoke hearts come out then 10 minutes later, the Brussels Sprouts. Waiter was unpleasant when we asked why they weren't together saying he had told us they would not come out together, which he did not. Won't be back.

Food was decent, but nothing great. What was awesome was the deal for happy hour, house red (Pinot), meatball, and thin crust pizza we're amazing values. If day only go for happy hour, otherwise try something deferent for a less generic pizza experience!

This was the first time for us at Stella Barra Pizzeria. I had the Thin Crust 4 Cheese Pizza and it was fantastic! The thinnest perfectly baked Pizza Crust that I've ever had. The other people with me also loved their Pizzas. The waitress was awesome. We'll definitely be back!
