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.
Service was excellent and the food was fabulous. Pizzas were made and tasted like the real thing from Italy! Highly recommend. Restaurant was light and breezy on this hot and humid night.
Excellent food - so delicious! Fabulous drinks and great service. Have been here before for personal and work dining. Never disappointed! Definitely order both off the main menu and pizza menu.
Great food, nicely busy, great staff. Try the pizzas or something classically Italian like the lasagne and tiramisu. Good coffee for afterwards too. Nothing to dislike!
