This is a very busy place and we had to wait for about 20-30 minutes for a table - we were offered seats at the bar but we opted for a table as it was my daughter's 13th birthday. We tried two different salads - both great - and had a basic cheese pizza - delicious. When the server found... More

I like good pizza. All the elements have to be there- sauce, toppings, crust. One bite of their mushroom pizza and I was in HEAVEN! I was oohing and ahhhing...over this 12" dream. It all came together- the crust is what I would call the "puff pastry" of pizza crust. Soft on the inside, slightly browned and perfectly crunchy, not... More

Ordered 4 pizzas online. Got a call that they would be delayed. Arrived when indicate by email. Ushered out of restaurant and told to sit in lobby. Would have ordered additional food but wasn't given the opportunity. Hope the pizzas are to make up for for being treated like an inconvenience.

start with the burrata then hopefully you have a few guests so you can order more than one pizza type. The crust is phenomonal. Watch the crust rising in glass jars around the kichen area. Plus after the great meal get some cookies at the take out counter when you leave.

Back in town for the day, I caught up with some friends and enjoyed a satisfying lunch with the high point being the bakery. Stella Barra can be pretty hectic on a weekend evening; around lunch time on a Saturday, four of us easily found a table. A steady stream of people followed. There must have been problems in the...

We had dinner here, it was fabulous. Great vibe and delicious food. It was very popular on the Friday night we visited, there was a 30 minute wait at 7pm. Would recommend to book.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
