There’s pizza, and then there’s gourmet pizza. You’ll find the latter at Pizzeria Stella. Make the trip from Rittenhouse Claridge to visit this handsome restaurant. Step inside, and you’ll find Pizzeria Stella gives off an authentic and laid-back vibe that makes it perfect for a dinner out with friends or a lunch date.
Start your meal with one of the excellent antipasti options, like the grilled octopus, served with potato, fennel, and a salsa verde. Each pizza is cooked in a wood-fired oven, coming out with crisp crusts and great flavor. Customers highly recommend the Tartufo pie, with black truffle, egg, and fontina. The San Daniele is another popular favorite, topped with prosciutto, smoked mozzarella, and arugula, for a peppery kick. Be sure to browse the selection of wines, beers and cocktails. The Meletti Mule is a real treat, with a blend of vodka, ginger, fresh lime, and meletti amaro.
