Stella Barra Pizzeria - Chicago
Book your next event with us
Pepperoni pizza was just great as well as the salad.
Meal was great. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Even popped by to talk to the kitchen about pizza dough and they were all lovely!
We have a long history with this restaurant. We were married next door at Summer House five years ago. Ever since then we've been loyal customers. This time, as a party of eight, we were seated on the patio of Stella Barra. It was a rare Chicago night when the weather was perfect. We started off with some apps: a new tomato and cucumber salad and an artichoke spread with crudité. Both were perfect for the warm summer night. We also ordered the amazing pork meatballs. We followed it up with the prosciutto pizza with an egg on top, the mushroom and truffle oil pizza and a Margherita pizza with some added prosciutto. Everything was really delicious. The service from our server Karylin couldn't have been better. We also were greeted by partner and general manager Corey, who always goes out of his way to make us feel like valued customers. Both Stella Barra and Summer house hold a special place for us and we enjoy every return trip.
White bean hummus was delicious!
Great happy hour beer, wine and food specials. Cute outdoor patio and great service
Loved it 1st time. Pizza excellent crust. Will go back soon.
I mean the noise level is just insane! Not a good place for kids or anyone looking to have a good conversation! There’s not even a quiet are. Food is fine.
Service is okay. Our waitress was so nice but that’s the best of it.
They where great we where 30 min late and they still took us right away!
Go with the Thin-Sin crust - light, crispy, delicious!
The food was excellent. We had crispy Brussel sprouts, A cheese and prosciutto starter and three pizzas for five people. Only a little pizza left. Everything was tasty, especially the avocado and arugula pizza. The cocktails are delicious too
Great service and fantastic pizza!
Our service was extremely slow and our server forgot to order one of the 3 items we selected. Otherwise, we love Stella Barra!
It was wonderful to celebrate my birthday here and the service is just absolutely amazing!!!😊
Amazing! The restaurant, the food, the desserts, all was great! Congratulations!
Always great great food and a bustling atmosphere
This is a really neat place and the open layout really makes the place feel huge. Service was top notch and the food was very good. If you get the thin pizza, be prepared for a very thin pizza. It was a very different type of pizza, but we really enjoyed it! We’ll definitely be back! Oh, and the cookies from the bakery were AMAZING!
Great experience and great service! Love the pizza
Matt was our server and gave us the best service ever!
Service a little slow. Otherwise fun place to dine
It is disappointing that Lettuce Entertain You restaurants continue to use disposable plastic cups and straws for children and don’t even bother to ask before dropping them on the table (not to mention take away containers). I’m sure the company has heard that less than 9% of Chicago’s recycling actually gets recycled?! Or that there’s a serious problem with plastic waste?! Stella Barra and Lettuce Entertain You, Please do your part to consider your impact on the environment as you profit from your business.
We had a great meal and our server was so amazing with our son. She surprised me by asking if we wanted to order for him right away (something we do all the time, but no one ever asks!). We will be back!!
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, this is the BEST pizza in the city. I know, high praise but seriously it is so good! The crust is outstanding but in no way interferes with the different flavors of the pizza. Normally I can take or leave fried calamari, but we ordered it and it’s possibly the best I’ve had. Very crunchy and obviously high quality squid. It also comes with two sauces that are so good you want to eat them with a spoon. Service was excellent. Don’t change a thing!!!
Love the pizza and atmosphere of this place! Great wine :)
The menu on Open Table did not mention the brunch was buffet style, so I was surprised when arriving to find it was a buffet (normally I prefer a la carte to buffet). We had to find a server for our drink order, but after that service was excellent. The buffet was good, but as with all buffets I ate too much. The pizza looked good, so next time I would order it. Based on today's meal, I can neither recommend or not recommend this restaurant.
Delicious pizza, great service, fun casual atmosphere!
Loved the truffle pizza! Our server Faith was so sweet and very helpful. We will ask for her again.
Our server was exceptional. Highly attentive and knowledgeable. Knocked it out of the park. 10/10
We are used to very good pizza and salads here, and this experience did not disappoint—but don’t tell us you are serving a “salumi and burrata” pizza when you’re actually serving ricotta! A misleading if not inaccurate description on the menu. Sheesh!
We went for happy hour and had thin sin pizza
It was amazing
Our waiter was fantastic
Food was great, waiter did not pay much attention to us whatsoever, never once came to refill our water or check up on us (it was not busy whatsoever), and only seemed to care about his one other table. Took over 20 minutes just to get his attention to ask for the check.
We have been to Stella Barra’s Brunch many times... this was not the best. Some of the food choices were only warm not hot. Most disappointing were the eggs which are usually perfect and yummy.... they were just not good at all. When I asked why they were different I was told it was a different chief.... bring back the other chief please! They did add an omelette station which is nice... but don’t forget about your scrambled eggs!
Stella Barra is one of my favorite spots to dine in Chicago! Their happy hour specials are great and I love the regular menu too! A wide range of choices for food, wine and drinks. Cocktails are always on point and the staff always has recommendations when you aren't sure what to choose. Perfect spot for any occasion!
There are a ton of kids
Great pizza and service!!
The pizza was just ok. It seemed over cooked. The buzzing atmosphere probably impacts the low quality of food. The kale Caesar was great! And so was our server! Would not go back. Plenty of better pizza joints in Chicago.
Phenomenal california-style pizza amidst a sea of deep dish. The flavors are rich and combined perfectly. Love the butternut squash pizza. Great service, as well.
Easter brunch was a wonderful event and food was top notch. Buffet tables were constantly monitored and replenished, so all dishes were fresh and not dried out. The selection was just the right size and not overwhelming. Our server was there for us when needed. I would recommend the Stella Barra brunch for a weekend nosh.
The Sunday brunch definitely doesn't worth the price. The service is just ok. The food is just ok. I don't recommend this place.
Everything was good, food and service, noise level is loud. Tough for our group of 7, still enjoyed our birthday celebration!
