    When you are in the mood for Rustic Italian Pizza this is the perfect place. Go with the traditional Margherita or try the Tartufo with black truffle, fontina, egg, and parmesan.

    Top 5 pizza joint in my opinion. The sausage is insane but the best is the one with black truffle and egg. Always amazing. Pizzas are small so get one for each person.

    Order the Tartufo (black truffle, egg & fontina) and the Pepperoni (abbruzze). They are both fantastic in their own way. This is one of the best pizza joints in town.

    Who knew the pasta here would be a 'best of Philly' pick? Well...anyone who's tried the calamarata pasta little shrimp, guanciale, tomato bits, and chilies would. Oh Mr. Starr, you're so good to us. Read more

    Pizzeria Stella serves delicious signature wood-fired pizzas that are a cross between classic Neapolitan and New York style pizza in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.

    Tartufo and sausage (order lite pesto, won't be so spicey) are our favs. Like nearly all the pie choices. Staff wonderful, get to know a few makes it a great visit.

    Delicious trattoria starters like risotto and arancinis are the perfect setup to some of the most delicious bites of pie we've ever tasted. Get the Tartufo. Read more

    All top notch! From the grapefruit Pompelmo cocktail to the lamb Bolognese to the Porchetta wood fired pizza w fennel and garlic.

    The pepperoni pizza here is the best I've ever had. The pepperoni is sliced very thin, it curls in the oven and gets very crispy. Delicious.

    If you ever visit Philly, this place is a must go. Pizzas to die for: Tartufo and San Daniele. Delicious!

    The plain old margherita is that perfect pie you have to eat with a fork, just like in Southern Italy.

    Grab one of the eight stools at the bar, so you can eye up your pizza as it's being made.
