The crust was as good as it gets. The sauces and ingredients were very good, but not the best I have had. The service was excellent. If you have any room left, try the ice cream sandwich on your way out.

While visiting my daughter and grand daughter, we ordered pizza from Stella Barra. We chose pepperoni and the kale pizza which both were delicious! The pizzas were large and we even had left overs! The restaurant is only a few blocks from the house and worth it. Please visit and you can dine in or carry out. Excellent pizza!

Stumbled on this excellent restaurant and had the best pizza ever. Coming from England we have nothing like this and we were blown away as the meal and service were excellent. We were squeezed in at the pizza bar and had a great evening even though we were one of the oldest customers there but don't let this put you... More

Saw a magazine article raving about this place, brought my client thinking we are about to experience Italy in Santa Monica. Salads were nicely presented, Awful seating more for Frat boys than for clients in skirts. My pants came away with dirt stains from then not wiping under the table. I was wearing white-ouch! Moved tables Pizza came and I... More

M Street Kitchen's pizza place and a very nice addition to the area. The pizza is a hybrid of New York Style with a touch of the Windy City. The secret is the dough, in fact, it's all about the dough. The toppings are fresh made burrata, local ingredients, and hopefully, a light hand with the sauce. I'm not ready... More

I highly recommend this if you are interested in pizza while visiting Santa Monica. This location actually shares an entrance with the M Café ... but the two are in separate spaces. It's really worth a visit.
