Stella Barra Pizzeria - Chicago
Book your next event with us
Excellent food and service!
Food at Stella Barra is consistently tasty, but last night’s atmosphere definitely made it harder to appreciate the food. We had to wait to be seated until 20 minutes after our reservation started and the wait staff was obviously overwhelmed and barely paying attention to us. It’s not their fault, but restaurant managers definitely need to improve their operations so busy nights are still enjoyable for the customers. It was also very loud and noisy.
Meatballs were cold and over spiced. Good for kids though. Service very agreeable.
It was great and they have a nice happy hour menu.
Egg prosciutto pizza is great
We made a reservation (thank goodness because the place was jam packed) we were seated shortly after arrival, food was good, staff was great and reasonably priced meal.
My husband and I decided to give this place a try for my birthday this year. Our dining experience left a lot to be desired. The pizza was bland, the salads and wines we ordered were just okay. Our waiter appeared to be strung out on some type of upper and was very forgetful of minor requests we had made. The roasted Brussels we got as an app were good, but how hard is it to execute a roasted veggies? We left underwhelmed and will likely not go back as we thought the food was overpriced and not memorable.
We enjoy the Sunday brunch buffet. It is smaller than most, and not overwhelming, but there is plenty of food and choices, and the price is reasonable. There are some usual things, like great scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, thick bacon, pancakes, sausage, but there are some unusual things, like egg whites with kale, sausage hash, bacon mac and cheese, corn and scrambled egg cheese enchiladas, various roasted vegetable confits, desserts, and more. Service is warm, friendly, and efficient. Overall, a great Sunday brunch experience.
We love Stella Barra. We go regularly with our toddler. It’s a great atmosphere for families where you still get great food and drinks.
Our service was incredibly bad. We were essentially ignored by our server aside from ordering and paying.
They have some of the best gluten free pizza and our waiter was super helpful with making decisions and giving his input!
The best gluten-free pizza in the city
The squash pizza is terrible. It should not be in the menu/ is that bad. Bartender was very accommodating. .
Fun spot to take an out of town friend visiting Chicago for the first time. Service and ambience was great
Maybe the worst pizza ever in Chicago. Came out like cardboard.... just soooo bad really!!
Our server was the best! Great service, great personality, friendly.
The Gluten Free pizza was surprisingly great and our waiter couldn’t have been nicer. Great for a casual night out.
We had a fabulous waitress who described the specials well and also encouraged us to try the AMAZING PUMPKIN PIE! Love this place!
Karylin was an amazing server!! She took such great care of us and made our whole experience. The food was also so excellent.
This is a solid bunch for $24.95. 90% of everything was good, the food is fresh, hot, tasty and good quality. The two negative are the breakfast sausage/bacon selection. The sausage does not appear cooked, it is white in color and not brown like it should be. I don't think it was chicken breakfast sausage. The bacon was dry and hard. It looked like plastic bacon that would be in a deli showcase showing what the meal looked like (even though it is not real food). Don't know how anyone can screw up bacon this bad. The bacon was not hot, it was cold. Error #2, our table ordered two Bloody Mary's. The waitress brought us three and told me the bar inadvertently made one extra and we would not be charged. We were charged.
Dining at Stella Barra is always a delight. I loved celebrating my birthday here and bringing my friends from out of town. And, I LOVED the cookie and ice cream they brought to help me celebrate my birthday!
Our waiter was awesome!!! And the food and service was great
Very cold in the restaurant
Devin was an awesome server. He was very attentive. He made the dining experience great!
Stella Barr’s is a best kept secret - always great food and 10⭐️ service from the staff !
The food here is always great, it’s just so pricey for what you get.
This is a MUST visit kinda place! SOOO GOOD. It was my first time and I will definitely be back many, many times. Easily one of the top 3 pizza places in the city. If you want heavily food, great drinks, and a super chill ambience, I'd highly recommend. We ordered the Prosciutto & Local Burrata Plate, Shaved Mushroom White Pizza, and Tequila Mockingbird cocktail. The burrata is some of the best we'd ever had and the proscuitto was a perfect compliment. The Shave Mushroom White Pizza is a must have and is utterly delicious. It was a busy Saturday night and the place was packed but very welcoming. We can't wait to go back and try more and order our new found favorites again!
Went for brunch with friends and really loved their brunch spread! Great quality food and reasonable prices.
I recently went to Stella Barra with some friends from out of town that have 2 small kids...and it was the perfect environment for a family. I don't have kids, so I was nervous and unsure of where to go — but the staff and space were great. They even let the 4-year old play with some dough while we waited for dinner. And he was beyond excited when his PB&J sandwich was served without the crust. As for the adults, we loved our pizzas, wine and the brussel sprouts. So delicious. Also, the bartender made an AMAZING espresso martini that I will be back for.
This is a great Lincoln Park staple. The food is delicious and the service is spot on! I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a twist on pizza that is modern and mouth watering!
I have been here in the past maybe two years ago. I found the pizza this time not very good. The crust was way too thin (no I didn’t get the thin version) and there was very little sauce and cheese was almost non existent for the pepperoni pizza. The mushroom pizza was just ok. Again way too thin of crust on bottom. For the size and price I wouldn’t go back again
Stella has good food, a really good atmosphere, and good service! My favorite part is the cookies bar, which is a big favorite for all.
Food was awesome!
Service and food were great! Drinks just took a while to come out
Service was incredible and made a special occasion truly memorable! Great, unique pizza - even for Chicago!
Special pizza of the day was fantastic and Matthew made the evening !!
Lettuce Restaurants are consistent in their delivery and customer experience. Pizzas were tasty as usual.
We could have done without the glitter covered table (there was a bachelorette party earlier and glitter covered the seats/floor/table) - not easy to clean up).
Lived the patio
Our grand daughters 16th Bday. The waitress sent the special dessert of the day free! 1st visit for our grand daughter. She is a fan for life!!! You manage your business with just the “right” human touch!
Mediocre food for the price, but great service and ambiance.
