420 S 2nd St, Philadelphia, PA, United States
Pizzeria Stella is Stephen Starr's most casual restaurant, perfectly located for those who want to grab a bite before seeing a movie at the Ritz or checking out a bar in Old City. The menu offers classic American-Italian appetizers, such as octopus, fresh ricotta, and broccoli rabe, as well as nice selection of cured meat. Pizzas are fired in a wood oven and served with such toppings as fennel sausage, clams, pistachios, and black truffles, to name just a few. Be sure to leave room for dessert, which is homemade gelato from a "secret family recipe."
