Pizzeria Stella combines the unpretentious warmth of a neighborhood restaurant with the spirit of an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria.
A cozy, casual dining area, complete with cafe windows peering out onto Society Hill’s historic Headhouse Square, is the perfect stage for our wood-burning oven, which skilled pizzaioli use to bake pies at temperatures as high as 850 degrees. Decadent pizza made with only the freshest ingredients is our specialty, but the menu extends beyond the pie to include antipasti, salads, pasta and a smart selection of Italian beer, wine and cocktails.
Café windows looking onto Headhouse Square hint of the unpretentious warmth of a neighborhood restaurant. An open wood-burning hearth occupies center stage, and turns out artisanal and decadent Neapolitan pizza pies.

Best Pizza in Philadelphia: The Ultimate Guide
“Too often overlooked in the debate over Philly’s modern pizza excellence, Stephen Starr’s entry into the pizza game remains a solid contender, offering beautiful round pizzas topped with everything from wood-roasted sausage, small, hot pepperoni from Abruzze, smoked mozzarella and truffled buratta, all from a tiled, wood-burning oven in the middle of the open kitchen.”
