Stella Barra Pizzeria - Chicago
On Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-2pm, Stella Barra presents a chef-inspired brunch buffet for $22.95 complete with cinnamon rolls, breakfast enchiladas, caramelized french toast and more, plus $5 select brunch cocktails. Kids 10 & under eat FREE. Reservations accepted.
The backroom is a gem with a cozy fireplace for wintertime. There are many creative pizza choices as well as some standard combinations. Nice selection of beers on draft and bottles. Tried the new roasted broccoli salad with citrus mustard dressing--it was delicious! Our server told us that we could order !/2 and 1/2 pizza combinations--a great tip. I especially enjoyed the Shaved Mushroom white pizza (gruyère, melted onion, truffe oil, rosemary, parsley).
Annual place I visit! Love it!
Fun place. Great food and service.
Loved this place. They were very accommodating with dietary restrictions and had many many options and the food was delicious, wait staff was knowledgeable and very attentive. The venue itself is outstanding with the fireplace and lights. Only issue I had was that I made my reservation hours in advance and still got placed in a corner near the door away from the pretty parts of the restaurant. I had also specified in my reservation that there was a birthday and they did not even address it, even though another table got dessert and the singing. Just was a little disappointed.
It’s my kids’ favorite pizza place!
Gluten free pizza is great, cocktails are great! Highly recommend.
Always love having Stella Barra in my back pocket! Great go-to pieces on the menu and reliable experience.
Some of the best brussels sprouts I've ever had! We also had the meatballs, seasonal spicy sausage orecchiette and the prosciutto and egg pizza, which were all great, too. The food came quickly and there was a good atmosphere even near the open kitchen.
Awesome food options, we loved the prosciutto pizza. Music was strange - old schoo hip hop like “Trick Daddy” was playing, and it did not match the crowd as their were families with children there. Someone on the staff must have been playing their personal favorites instead of music appropriate to the restaurant theme.
Excellent, fresh and unusually flavorful pizza. Love pizza and have been to hundreds of pizza restaurants; other than a couple of deep dish Chicago pizzas that I particularly like, this is next on my list. Nice draft beer selection as well. The only gripe is that it is very loud acoustically.
Had the kale salad and classic margherita pizza. Brought two kids under 1 and they had the buffet. Service and food were both fantastic.
It was amazing! We loved the gluten free pesto pizza.
Awesome restaurant..fun bar scene and wonderful service!!
The server Chris was friendly and knowledgeable and made us feel very important. His recommendations were spot on too.
They don’t let kids make pizza at any time. We went at 6 and we were too late. Kids still had fun and loved the pizza
Had 7:30pm reservation. Wasn’t seated till 8 pm
Great restaurant for kids AND for adults. Very attentive to gluten free needs. Highly recommended
As expected, another great meal at Stella Barra. Went out on a limb and tried the Brussels sprouts pizza- loved it. The Chianti was great too.
LEYE doesn’t disappoint!
Best thin crust I have ever had, period. It was perfect. I got the Roma pizza, b/c vegan. On one hand, it was a bit boring and the parsley would not stay put, on the other hand the balance of the olive oil, parsley, and garlic was pleasant. Maybe some sort of topping, like vinegar-soaked tomato slices, to keep the pizza together? My partner got a pizza with an egg on it, which looked very interesting. The soft, changed lighting throughout the dining area was just perfect. We'll definitely try the couch seating, next time.
Service was terrible! Waited for 10-15 minutes for our server to approach us us on a very slow evening. Ordered 2 pizzas, long gap between each pizza arriving which was odd considering same size, similar style and ordered at the same time.
Focaccia Appetizer was stale and the Kale salad was overwhelmed with dressing.
No additional plates were ever delivered for any of the food.
Waited for ever for our check to arrive and I still have a 22% tip because it was New Year’s Day. Hoping it was an off day!
Stopped by for New Year’s Day Pajama Brunch!! Delicious!!! Coffee is strong & flavorful!! Your biscuits are the BOMB!! Omg good!!! And what about that warm bread pudding!! To die for!!! A must again next New Year’s Day!!!
We had sparkling rosé and a wonderful pizza--half red and half white at the suggestion of our super friendly waiter. Everything was great!
This was our 2nd time here. The first time we went for brunch & the food was outstanding. Unfortunately, this time, none of our pizzas were up to par. My order was delayed until everyone else was already done because they said it burned & they had to make another one. They were nice enough to comp my dish
Loved sitting in the back room—didn’t even know that existed! Twinkle lights, exposed brick, fireplace—very cozy, and quieter than the front room.
Ambiente Familiar, muy buen servicio. La Burrata y la pizza deliciosa!
Pizza was amazing . Service so so. Waiter forgot our salad and had to be reminded. Salad was plain and not worth the money. Complained and told him it was a subpar salad from Stella Bella . Very surprised
We had a reservation for 9 and didn’t get a table until 10. The hostess could care less. Absurd.
Love the food and wine list! Happy deals are fantastic!
Food was great. Server was great. They have the best burrata in town.
Excellent food and service - we came for my daughters 14th birthday with six of her friends and a few of the parents. Everything was absolutely delightful!
Great salad and pizza
We made a reservation at 7:00 and didn’t get seated until 7:40
My mom and I brought my four year old twins to make pizzas (available weeknights before 6) at the kitchen window. The wait staff and kitchen staff were super friendly and accommodating and the girls really enjoyed doing their own cooking!
Very easy restaurant with a great combination of pizza that makes you want to try something totally different, outside of your norm.
Great brunch! Every item on the brunch table
Great brunch great professional staff been numerous times will keep going
Amazing service and the food was incredible!
Great food and service! Love the pizza and the ambiance is very nice. They're also great for kids as they have a make your own pizza!
Our server, Karylin, was awesome! She was sweet and attentive during our dinner. She was also very helpful in accommodating my vegan diet--thank you!
Our pasta dish arrived lukewarm. The cookie and ice cream dessert idea is a cop out. Both were too sweet. The music was too loud and uninteresting.
What was good? The Caesar salad was tasty and properly dressed. The service was great, really the best part.
