Stopped in for a late lunch and again was pleased with EVERYTHING! The thin crust pizza is the best in Philly as even the simplest choice reflects the best ingredients(the Margherita is an example) and tastes of Italy. The soups, especially the special fish soup is just amazing and the pasta, which you can order in both small and large... More

We visit Philadelphia often to visit family. Being within walking distance from Stella, we often get pizza to go from there The service is quick (ready in 15 minutes) and the varieties of pizza amazing. They are all delicious. My fav is pistachio. Recommend highly!

We had lunch on an unusually warm Sunday afternoon. The restaurant was full and windows were open - there were even a few tables seated outside. We sat at the counter to avoid a wait, and watched the preparation of the pizzas. Our service was prompt and the food came up quickly. I was adventurous and chose Calabrian Sausage, crushed... More

Ate here recently with a large group from work and they did a great job of serving us. The food was good with great meatball appetizers. I would not recommend the aranchini but other than that all was great. The pizza was good and the service was great. Well worth a visit

Our waiter was inexperienced and our pizza was soggy to the point we had to eat it with a fork and spoon. Our leftovers were sent in a full sized pizza box rather than a traditional leftover box which made carrying it around the city and then the bus a pain. I would not go back. Way too expensive for...

The pizza is amazing. Made fresh from start to finish. Thin crust and only one size, 12 inches. Service was not terrible but not the best.

A day out with friends was incredibly amazing due to the amazing cuisine at Pizzeria Stella. Not only was the staff welcoming, but they were extremely accommodating to all of our needs throughout our lunch. I ordered the marinara pizza (my favorite) and it was delicious. The fresh sauce and garlic were outstanding because they were complimented by a warm,... More

I had my grandson and a friend to this restaurant for lunch. My friend and grandson each had small pizzas and I had the lamb bolognese. The food was very good. The service was excellent. This restaurant is very clean and in an interesting part of town. The pizzas were baked in a wood fire oven that sits in the... More
