Stella Italian Kitchen & Pizzeria is one of Collaroy’s rising stars, serving up pizzas, Italian-style tapas and plenty of traditional mains and desserts from their modish restaurant on Pittwater Road. Found just steps from the beach, Stella Italian Kitchen merges old and new by improving upon recipes that’ve been passed down for generations. Open daily for dinner, Sydney’s Stella invites you to indulge in kitchen’s superlative Italian cuisine and take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Providing a stark contrast to the bright and sunny environment just outside the restaurant, Stella Italian Kitchen & Pizzeria’s dining space is dimly lit, featuring dark furnishings, a red accent wall and an industrial-chic decor. The modern atmosphere is further improved upon by a state-of-the-art kitchen and a wood-fired pizza oven which allow diners to see – and smell – the restaurant’s incredible Italian offerings. Its location near Collaroy Beach makes it ideal for daytrippers from all over Sydney to drop in for amazing Italian cuisine in a relaxed setting.
Take a break from all that sunshine and step into Stella Italian Kitchen & Pizzeria on Pittwater Road, where you can unwind with Italian tapas, pizza and a drink. The pizzas on offer are Italian-style – crispy and thin – and include classic varieties like gamberi, quattro formaggi, and caprese, all available with a gluten-free crust upon request. From the a la carte menu, we recommend the linguine marinara, the saltimbocca and any of the antipasti like calamari fritti and melanzane al forno, eggplant rolls stuffed with ricotta and basil then baked in tomato sauce and topped with Parmigiano-Reggiano. Stella’s desserts are fantastic too, so make sure to take an order of the vanilla bean panna cotta or the sticky fig pudding when looking to end on a sweet note.
Hadn’t been here before and was looking for a good local Italian restaurant. Service and food was fabulous and Nick was wonderful! Shall definitely go again!
Excellent, every was perfect and delicious! We went for mother’s day and had a great time. Thanks to the staff for such great service, it complimented the tasty food.
Delicious food. Great service. Good value. Lovely setting across the road from the beach ❤️ We were a large group and the experience was seamless
The food was amazing, service was awesome. The only thing lacking was air conditioning or even a fan. I would definitely go back there for the food.
We were a party of 7 and had a very pleasant evening at Stella Italian Kitchen & Pizzeria. We all enjoyed the delicious food and wine . The service was excellent and would recommend this Restaurant for a very pleasant night out Freda
Food was excellent, cannot fault any of the dishes we ordered. Keen to go back to try some other items. Only minor issue was the staff weren’t very attentive, took a few waves to get their attention to order drinks and desserts and even the bill at the end of the night
Stella has become a family favourite. And clearly from the number of people there last night, it is for many others. Good and friendly service, solid food at reasonable prices, a decent modest priced drinks menu and BYO. What isn't there to like about Stella? We'll be back for sure.
Excellent service. We had a slight problem with one of our meals and the wait staff couldn't have been more helpful or accomodating. They actually took the price of this meal off the bill. I would definitely return.
The calamari was the most tender one we have ever had. The rump steak special & seafood marinara linguine were delicious as well. Service excellent. I think we’ve just found our favorite restaurant in Collaroy, thanks guys.
I've been to Stella a few times and it never disappoints!! A mix of delicious traditional Italian dishes, my fav dishes are: Entree - prawns in sugo Pasta - marinara or pappardelle ragu Pizza - diavola
