We've eaten here many times over the years and stopped in recently after a long hiatus. At Stella you get a high-end, delicious pizza and more. Stella does have "gourmet" pizzas, but I say high-end instead because you can still just get a pepperoni pizza...More

Delicious pizza with inspired toppings are served daily here by Stephen Starr. Fresh from the brick oven enjoy a pie topped with pistachio, red onion ,rosemary, brussels sprouts with pancetta, or smoked mozzarella .Do not miss this pizzeria's offerings. Yummy

A very spacious and open restaurant. Tables are spaced comfortably. Staff was helpful and suggested good options as per our taste. Good thin crust pizza and a very good place to try vegetarian pizza.

There were few options for lunch around Society Hill, so I selected Stella primarily because it was open. I was very pleased with my Gemelli, which was very flavorful with fresh ingredients. The blackberry mint gellato was a nice finish
