Stella Barra Pizzeria
Steps from the Arclight, Stella Barra is the perfect pre- and post–movie nosh stop. There’s plenty of seating in the lofty space with a full bar serving local craft beers, Italian and Californian wines by the glass and bottle, and creative cocktails. To eat, there are farmers’ market salads and small plates to share, and top-notch pizzas boasting a chewy, sourdough crust and California-grown toppings. Try the fennel-flavored, house-made sausage topped with organic tomato and mozzarella and, while you can get it, the seasonal sweet-corn pizza with Tuscan truffle cheese, thyme, parsley and chili flakes. We also love the signature burrata, plated with warm house-made bread and tomato jam.
