The pizza was perfect -- thin crust, pepperoni with the right amount of kick! Our waitress, Kaitlynn, was helpful, prompt, and cheerful (she even made sure the TV's were switched to the Chicago Blackhawks game at our request!).
Save room for dessert: the chocolate chip cookie with sea salt, served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream was h-e-a-v-e-n! Enough for two to share! Take the short walk from the Santa Monica Pier down to Stella Rossa, and your taste buds will thank you!

We saw a video on YouTube on how they prepare the pizza dough. They let it rise for three days. This technique allows the dough to become very light and airy. So the crust is very crunchy and yet light. TGhey offer red and white pizzas.

We ordered 2 pizzas - one with salami and another with mushrooms. They were both delicious!
Also had a brussel spout appetizer. It was so delicious, we ordered another!
They only take reservations for parties of 6 or more, so we had to wait 1/2 hour. Well worth the wait. It was busy (and loud) for a thursday night.
The food and service were excellent. I will definitely return.

Their own wood fire oven- lots of choices. Can get crowded and loud but you can see your typical santa monica cool people here. Also good wine and beer selections. I like

Great Service. Great Pizza. Everything tasted so good. When we couldn't decide between two kinds of pizza, the server said she could make it half and half!
