“Excellent Stop in Little Italy!”
Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

The candy store a few doors done recommended this as we were looking for a good cannoli while visiting the North Beach area... They suggested Stella's!

It was so good, not over priced and we enjoyed them in their couple table outdoor area.

Definitely worth the stop!

Thank Doreen M

“There is nothing not to like and everything to like.”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Simplicity at its best. A couple of tables, a good coffee machine and choose your sweet. Just go and enjoy and don't worry about the calories, or if you are worried, have one cookie, I dare you, just one. Great spot, great atmosphere for quick in and out and a San Francisco landmark, at least in my mind.

“Wonderful little pasticceria in North Beach”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Whenever we visit San Francisco, my wife and I head to Victoria's pastry shop at he corner of Stockton and Vallejo in North Beach. Alas, we found last week that it had morphed into a Chinese grocery store. Dismayed, we soon found Stella just a couple of blocks away. Stella is a very small pasticceria, mainly takeaway with just a couple of small tables. We scored the one in the window and nursed our coffee and sfogliatelle as long as we could while watching life's passing pageant on Columbus Avenue. The pastries are as varied and tasty as any we've had anywhere. We were served by a very pleasant young lady (wish I could remember her name) who, when I mentioned our Victoria's quest toldus that Stella was owned by the same people and that Victoria's had opened in a new location. Now we have two favorite spots for good Italian pastry and coffee.
