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.
Amaaaazing service, especially the manager. The booking hadn’t been received but he didn’t miss a beat. He arranged a table and went above and beyond the whole night. A fantastic local Italian restaurant.
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.
