Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Tartufo pizza
$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Pizza, Reservations, Full Bar, Center City East
"Stella bakes the best pizzas in Philly. They're nice and crisp with a slight char, yet still doughy. The pizzas are absolute perfection and also have a great variety in flavors. It's impossible to pick just one, but If I had to, it would be the Tartufo pizza as it has truffle and eggs, two things that I love. You can smell the pizza wafting through the restaurant before you see it! The yolk is still nice and runny, and you get to stir this in with the fontina cheese. It's just a great pizza."

"As a family, we always enjoy Stella. It's a great place to go with kids. My family loves the Tartufo pie, topped with black truffle, a runny egg, and Fontina cheese."
Pepperoni pizza
$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Pizza, Reservations, Full Bar, Center City East
"I loooove the pepperoni pizza at Stella! The flavor is so amazing because they use Abruzzese pepperoni, which is smaller and more intense than pepperoni we are used to. The flavors are so well-balanced and are harmonious with the spicy, porky pepperoni, aromatic oregano, and sweet and tangy tomato sauce. The perfectly charred crust is crisp yet chewy and always tender. I get it everytime I go."
Piccante pizza
$$, Happy Hour, Outdoor Seating, Pizza, Reservations, Full Bar, Center City East
"Tender and crisp at the same time with the perfect amount of char, you can't go wrong with any of the pies at Stephen Starr's rowdy pizzeria. My favorite is the Piccante, with hot capicola and sharp provolone layered on crushed tomatoes and lit with red pepper."
