Back in town for the day, I caught up with some friends and enjoyed a satisfying lunch with the high point being the bakery. Stella Barra can be pretty hectic on a weekend evening; around lunch time on a Saturday, four of us easily found a table. A steady stream of people followed. There must have been problems in the...

We had dinner here, it was fabulous. Great vibe and delicious food. It was very popular on the Friday night we visited, there was a 30 minute wait at 7pm. Would recommend to book.

After 6-7 miles of traipsing around Hollywood my wife was getting a little hangry. We had seen this place while walking around the previous day. The menu looked entertaining so we opted to try it for a late lunch. We started with grilled grape burratta and then went with the shaved mushroom pizza. The flavors were delicious and the crust...

The pizza here is delicious! The crust is nice and crispy and the toppings were simple yet super tasty. We had the sausage & fennel and the cheese pizzas, both with the perfect amount of toppings. Good Italian wines on the list too. We walked in at around 10.30pm and it was a good atmosphere & service. Would definitely recommend!

Wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff. We had meatballs and a salad for starters and shared between us. Pizza was the main and we shared it was fantastic. Washed down with a beer and wine, what more could you ask for. They are open for lunch and dinner and close at 2 am. It was a little dark for my husband... More

Loved the pizza. Opt for the original crust, it's crunchy on the outside and pillowy on the inside. Finish off your meal with a chocolate chip sea salt cookie and you won't be disappointed.

I always go to this place at least once when I am back in LA visiting. The pizzas are woodfire fresh and unique in flavor. My favorites are the Shaved Mushroom and the Butternut Squash pizza. The chopped salad is delicious too. The service can be very slow, even during low peak but the pizza is worth it. I always... More

Get the meatballs for sure, pizza is good, not amazing, but meatballs made the visit totally worth it.

You see the folks making the pizza and feel the energy of the oven in this relatively small and definitely hip restaurant. All the seating is at stools and there is a large bar at the center. It gets packed, but less so at lunch time. Friendly service. Worth trying some of the add-ons with the pizza, such as prosciutto... More

I'm back in Singapore but still dreaming about that truffle bacon kale pizza we had there in Dec. I've never been a pizza fan but I've realized that it's only because I've never had REALLY good pizza before! Now that I have, it sucks to be thousands of miles away.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
