Stella Barra’s artisanal pizzas are made with fresh, sustainable ingredients from local farmers markets. The ever-changing seasonal menu features Chef Jeff Mahin’s handcrafted pizzas topped with housemade ingredients alongside a selection of market-driven small plates, salads and sandwiches. The rustic yet modern dining room features a rectangular bar serving artful cocktails, as well as a diverse list of Italian wines.

Pizza toppings range from prosciutto and egg to shaved mushroom to smoked bacon and can be served on a lighter “Thin Sin” pizza crust, or even gluten-free dough. Handcrafted breakfast items, fresh pastries and a selection of breads are available for carryout from the Market counter.

This is a nice little spot. Good food, but runs a tad pricy, which isn’t bad for the area, but still just above what I’m used to spending. Great service, really chill vibe with lots of energy. Depending on the hour you might be leaning in closer to have that conversation. A reliable experience as I’ve been here two or three times now.

A tip: servers are fairly busy, so I’d recommend having your drink and food order ready when they come by. I’ve never felt rushed by them, but it could be a beat before they circle around again on busier nights. The menu is pretty straightforward, so I’m never overwhelmed by four pages of cheesecakes like at other places.

We had a wonderful time. We made it in time for happy hour and ordered 3 appetizers, 2 pizzas and one pizza off the regular menu, all to share. Two of us ordered the hh wine and we shared two big, delicious cookies. I had joined their rewards club so I had a $15 credit off our bill. We had gone to see the Phantom of the Opera at the Pantages, everyone was outstanding, so walking to Stella Barria from the theatre was perfect and capped our evening off perfectly!

Really enjoyed our first visit to Stella Barra. We were seated quickly by welcoming staff. Food tasted excellent and the thin pizzas are delicious but they quickly went cold. Overall great food but felt like we were rushed in and out.

Great mushroom pizza and arugula salad. Lot of vegetarian options. Seating was very eclectic. Parking was easy. Service was very good and the server very helpful with our time constraint because we were running late for a show at Pantages theater. Helped us figure out parking solutions for the theater as well. We would go back.

We loved it! The food was outstanding & the service was stellar. Drinks were a little too pricey to have more than one. They accommodated our party of 6 & it was fun. The place was half full when we arrived @ 5:45 PM but it was packed by 6:30. Not so sure about the music selection as they played a rap song that had very graphic language. Fortunately, I only heard the lyrics to this song when I was in the quiet restroom because on the floor it was hard to hear everyone at our own table. This limited our conversations to the persons sitting directly next to you. Great overall but not perfect.

Great food, bad server. We get, it's Fathers Day and I'm sure the last place you want to be it at work, but the attitude could have been left at the door. We never saw the server after he took our order. We had to flag down other servers to get water, that should've been brought to the table without us asking as we saw it done with others at the restaurant. It also looked like he was avoiding our table the whole time. Wasn't a great feeling to be ignored. I would still recommend going for the amazing pizza, but hopefully that server changes his tune.

I loved the restaurant itself— it had a great atmosphere and was super fun. It was super crowded and hard to walk around because the tables are so close together. Our service wasn’t good— the waiter checked on us maybe 3 times during our entire meal (we were there for a little more than an hour). The food was really good. I’d definitely come back, just hopefully with a better waiter.

My friends and I came before a show at the Pantages. We loved the atmosphere, the music, the food, and the fact that we got done with plenty of time to drop leftovers in the car and still make our show. We’ll definitely be coming back.

My two girlfriends and I went for dinner before a show at the Pantages and the starter and salad came out VERY quickly, were delicious, and our waiter was very attentive! The butternut squash pizza was EXTREMELY DELICIOUS. We got a bottle of wine, two pizzas, a salad, the meatballs and a cookie for under $100! I will ABSOLUTELY return before every show I see!

It was amazing food and the staff was very kind. The food did take a excessively long time to be given to us, but I think I would go back just to get another peanut butter cookie. We went on a day where it was not busy at all, no crowds at all whatsoever and it just seemed to take forever. Maybe it was just a bad day for the kitchen.

I normally love this restaurant but my experience last weekend was not very good. The food was still amazing, but the service was poor. The waiter wore a t-shirt that said something to the effect of "I was bored before I even got here" and it showed in his work. He brought the wrong pizza (didn't take the order correctly), brought a second beer that was not the same one (requested beer), and the delay between pizzas was significant. There were 3 of us and the second pizza was eight minutes after the first, the third pizza was 22 minutes after the first (I was done by the time my wife got her pizza). He blamed that on the kitchen but I suspect he messed up the order based on how so many other things were wrong. I will still go back because the food is so good and the location is great, but I was very disappointed with this visit.

Had reservations however waited over 40 minutes. Apparently the table for 6 we were waiting on had been there for 2 hours. Check was paid but guests wouldn’t leave. We ended up sitting in the bar area. Glad we found a spot for 6. It would of been nice if they would have told table another party was waiting. Otherwise food was very good.

Good for people watching and easy crowd pleasing plates but not stellar quality. Waiters seemed jaded and indifferent. If they had a wood fired oven the pizza would taste a whole lot better.

The weekend nighttime vibe was really nice. Everyone was polite and attentive. The food was delicious. Try the Creamy Organic Tomato Bisque (flavor is on point) and the Crispy Calamari (didn’t taste frozen or oily) for apps. For pizza I’ve tried Shaved Mushroom (I order this every time I come here) and Prosciutto & Egg (its bomb).

My sister referred me to this place and it was perfect for our needs. Two hour parking for $3 below with validation. We only had salad and pizzas, which were really excellent. The restaurant has a nice feel to it and it got very busy before we left. Corner property makes it a little easier to find street parking if you get there at the right time. Service was excellent! We will definitely return.

I enjoyed the tomato bisque and white sauce mushroom pizza with my boyfriend when we visited! We came sort of late, at 9 PM, but there was still plenty of room so I don't think you would have to make a reservation if you came in at this time. Reasonable price for the food / portions, love the ambiance. Took a while to get seated because there was only one waiter who was working at the cafe so she had to finish up her stuff before helping us, which took a few minutes.
