I've been going to this restaurant for a while. I love the burrata and pizza options, but the service is typically poor. It takes forever for them to take your order and to get your check, so good luck getting anything in-between.
We popped in for a quick dinner on the patio and stayed to sip cocktails because of the great ambiance. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. Make sure to grab some sea salt chocolate chip cookies on your way out.
Lovely ambiance and wonderful service! Our waitress, Savannah, was delightful the last time we went. We’re right in the neighborhood and we love to frequent Stella Barra. Great pizza and good cocktails too.
We made dinner plans for our group after whiskey tasting at Binny’s. The table was ready right away, and we were put in the back outside area. The dining alfresco was beautiful and made you forget you were in the DePaul neighborhood. The food was very good, but I had just returned from Italy so I wasn’t impressed. The service was good except for the rushed bus service. Overall, Stella Barra Pizzeria is a hot place in the neighborhood and worth a stop to experience all the excitement.
Best gluten free pizza crust in Chicago and probably the best gf crust I’ve ever had!
We've been to Stella Barra many times as it is a nice local place. Sometimes it can be a bit loud, but it has a good energy. We go there for the pizza, and it never disappoints. The Brussels sprouts are also really good!
Our waitstaff was great she gave us choices of what we can order. She checked on us enough times that it did not bother our dining. Second time there and will be back.
Disappointing that outdoor space was closed but grateful waiter got A/C dialed down a bit so less like a meat locker. Food terrific!
Great for family dinner
They seated us on a table underneath a dripping air conditioning duct that felt like “Walking in a drizzle”
Food was mediocre.
Always great service and food!
We had the most amazing waiter who gave us complete insight. Not only do they have the best pizza/food, but the attached bakery has cookies the size of your face that are TO DIE FOR. You can't find a better cookie. The food, service, and vibes are unbeatable and I can call it one of my top favorite restaurants in Chicago!
yum yum yum // love love love
I've only ever gotten the mushroom truffle pizza but figured I'd try something new and went with a red sauce most recently; I was not disappointed. Can't wait to get back to try even more.
The cocktail list is void of drinks with rum or vodka which was a bummer as I don't prefer gin tequila or burbon, however, their specials are usually amazing.
Love the contrast of Stella compared to Summer House next door.
Great brunch buffet. Excellent food, laid back atmosphere.
Favorite place to go when we go to the city!!
Jared and Michael fabulous bartenders!!
We had a great experience! We waited about 45 minutes for our reservation because we requested outside, but we didn’t mind and had a drink at the bar while we waited. The pizza was outstanding and the wine was great. The mushroom pizza with truffle oil is one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had. The outdoor patio is adorable and we’re glad we waited to sit outside!
Anytime this place gets busy, the kitchen slows to a crawl. 50 minutes wait for a thin crust pizza...really?
This is a common problem with Lettuce Entertain You restaurants. Strange...they get most things right.
So happy we found this spot- great food and incredible service. Made a reservation and the table was ready when we arrived, our waitress was great and the cocktails were fun! You can go half and half with any of their pizzas, which is great to try a couple different kinds. Will be back!
Recently my last two visits to Stella Barra have not been very good. The service has not been good and the food has been sub par. They just changed menus and overall was not happy with the experience.
Always a good go-to. choices. Server was great, food great and very convenient! Thank you Stella Barra! My only concern this time was music: too loud and I was not a fan of the choices.
Always a great choice! Love the gluten free pizza.
Very popular spot as it was crowded already at 5:00 on Saturday. Service was pleasant but a little slow. All pizzas were tasty and delivered on menu promise. The gluten free pizza was super thin crust so was almost overwhelmed with the toppings. The gluten free chocolate chip cookie tasted a little stale, so was an expensive and disappointing treat.
This is pretty decent place but not spectacular. I think the pizza was average for a Neopolitan Pizzareia. The appetizer were significantly better than the pizza.
Javier was our server and was very knowledgeable and attentive. Our food was amazing and loved the ambience. We will definitely be back and can't wait to try the brunch! Thanks!
Svc was excellent and some of the rewards very much appreciated !!!! Back soon
Back room super hot and humid, otherwise great brunch and service.
Soggy thin pizza with minimal cheese. Mostly tomato sauce or cream sauce.
We saw the Chicago Best’s segment and this made us decide to try the butter squash pizza and it was great. We also tried the prociotto egg pizza and that was also good. Will come back and will try the Sunday brunch and come back on a regular visit and try other food in the menu.
Amazing pizza. I had the kale with white sauce and was blown away. The service was very responsive. Go early if you want to avoid the crowds as sound level increases some.
Usually love this place but food was sub par today. Disappointed! And outdoor space wasn’t open.
I ordered the sausage pizza. I told the server that having had the same pizza before, it seemed like they were always light on the sausage. I also asked for fresh garlic. I could not taste the garlic and the sausage was light.
My wife ordered a gluten free Margarita pizza. Instead they brought a regular pizza. By the time they remade the pizza, I was half done. Very disappointing
Great selection on the brunch buffet. Service was great and atmosphere was casual and relaxing.
Outstanding flavorful thin crust pizza with fresh tasting ingredients and very flavorful which I rarely say for thin crust pizza. My favorite thin crust pizza in the Chicago area.
Omg!!!! The best brunch buffet for the pricw in te freakin world
Fun place. Love the outdoor area especially. A little loud inside but lively! Brussel Sprouts are excellent. The pizza is fine, but there is better pizza in Chicago, so come for the salads and starters and the fun atmosphere. The service is excellent also.
Great food. WAY too loud
The food and service were great, but it was so hard to have a conversation in the restaurant because the noise level was so loud.
Pizza great. Service slow and spotty. Our last entree came out five minutes late. Difficult to get a beer from our server who kept forgetting about our table.
Fantastic pizza! Our big Salads were excellent as well. Our waitress was very good. Gluten free options were sooo good! We celebrated Mother's Day there. We will definitely return.
