Stella Rossa on Main Street Santa Monica

May 12, 2011

From the owners of LGO comes a fun, laid back take on gourmet pizza.  The place is called Stella Rossa, and I’m in love.  From the unpretentious atmosphere to the extensive wine list, this place has it all.  Our waitress was knowledgeable and very perceptive, the food came out quickly, and it was wonderful.  The pizza was is one word AMAZING!  It came to our table fresh out of the brick pizza oven from their open kitchen so watching it come to us in anticipation was half of the fun!  The crust on the bottom of the super thin pizza was crispy and light.  It held the cheese and tomatoes with out getting soggy even down to the last piece, but the best part of the crust was the outer end.  It was crunchy on the outside, but warm and gooey on the inside.  The dough was fully cooked, but it had an almost creamy appeal to it.   We also had the zucchini mint salad which was a perfect light start to a carb filled dinner.  Desert was equally delicious.  The salted caramel pot de creme is extra salty and immensely rich.  All I have to say is Gjelinas you now have competition!  And watch out because Stell Rossa also does take out!  YUM
