“Great gourmet pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

If you're looking for a slice of pepperoni, go find a pizza hut or a food court. If you want some really good pizza, come here. They have a very thin crust pizza, not too heavy with bread, so you can really enjoy their toppings. We had a mushroom pizza (delicious for the mushroom lovers), a sausage pizza that uses their house-made sausage (excellent!), and a Margherita with added ham, also great. We went on a weekday evening, and it was busy enough we had to wait a few minutes for a table.

My only real complaint is that the on-street metered parking out front doesn't allow enough time on the meters to have a sit down dinner without being interrupted by parking concerns.

“very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Best pizza, (crust is great) - had some mushy pea pizza which i never thought i would have ordered and it was amazing. the more traditionnal one too. service was bored at the door, ok at the table. very very crowded and not a great deal of atmosphere but the food (side salads were amazing too) is worth the trip.

“Best combination of taste,price and ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

This is simply the best pizza I have had in LA. Their choices are simple yet unique and the pizza itself with its super thin crust and fresh and light wheat cannot be beat. As recommended I tried the shaved mushroom pizza and my wife and I had wows with every single bite down to the last one. Our waitress was very polite, smiling all the time and service was great. She even suggested the special appetizer and that was amazing too. The vibe of the place was very young and hip and the price was pretty good. I will be definitely going back.

“I hate to write a review like this!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Well how do u start a review like this?Went to Santa Monica for the day, took are puppy with us. We wanted some great pizza so went to Trip advisor like always and found this place Stella Rossa. My wife call and told them we had a puppy they said it would be okay, that they had two tables outside in the front of the Resturant that were first come first serve. So we got there early got are table and waited and waited I went inside, and decide to order at the register. Then I was told that the tables outside are reserved, so I cancel our order and went to a better Pizza place back at the Santa Monica Mall! Never thought I would write a review like this but there's always a first!!
