Average pizzas

We went to La Stella's as it was recommended as the best pizza in Dali by the rough guide. It was ok. The tomato sauce and mozzarella were correct but the pizza crust definitely lacked something as it was almost tasteless.

The pizza is awesome! The other stuff we tried was odd, but that is to be expected when you order tacos and palak paneer in China! We recommend sticking to the pizza and our teenage daughters rate the banana splits highly.

Went here with a group as it was recommend to us. We had to teach them how to make salad cook steak. We bought them cloth to be presentable. Service was slow. Late. Boss is unfriendly. When we left they add a new fee of 1000 cny to pay coming from nowhere. Pure scam. Don't go there

This place was recommended to us by the boss of our guest house, since it is owned by the same people who own it I was really excited about wood oven pizza, but at the end i was really disappointed. Pizza is mediocre as best, as good as you would find in other Chinese restaurants, which means not very good.... More

The only thing that is worth trying is the beef pizza, it's cheesy and delicious. The curry and spaghetti are amateur made foods with low budget ingredients and with either too many spices or hardly much. The seating is nice and the atmosphere is peaceful. There are also a lot of magazines to keep you company.

We went to la Stella after a Dali foreign friend told us it was the best pizza in town, with wood oven. The place is really nice and staff is kind but the food quali is terrible, we tried a pizza a lasagna and Cantonese rice, all badly cooked and a disappointment. The prices are cheap, so if you spent... More

With limited good quality western food in the old city of Dali, La Stella's has become my choice for pizzas. Their pizzas may not oozing out the cheese but it's good enough. They also provide delivery and good friendly service.

Stella's have their own wood fired pizza oven, which consistently turns out great pizzas. These go down great with their generous tomato and goat's cheese salads and equally generous lime juices. Pleasant outdoor seating away from the main drag, so that you are not constantly hassled by vendors, or three floors of interior tables if you prefer to be inside.... More
