We’re suckers for sunsets and seaside views, especially when paired with an Italian feast!

There’s no doubt that Henley Square is one of the best places to be in the middle of a South Australian summer. But what’s on offer for the rest of the year? Well, for a start, there’s Stella.

Recently celebrating 25 years, this Italian- inspired restaurant offers casual dining with a side of exceptional views across one of our prettiest beaches, all year round. Whether you’re dining indoors looking out over the ocean or sitting in the square soaking up the fresh sea breeze, you’ll leave feeling refreshed, invigorated and full of delicious food.

Annie Jiang took over Stella in 2015 and gave it a facelift in three short weeks before reopening in winter. Along with General Manager Fillippo Ludovici, she’s reinvented Stella as a restaurant that’s about more than just a quick pizza to go. With sunshiney yellow touches everywhere, this bright and airy space is welcoming for all.

You can make a pit stop at Stella any time of the day and be wowed by their menu, which is bursting with authentic Italian flavours that are perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Breakfast is served until 11.30am and it’s all about your favourites — the pancakes, smashed avo and brekky burger spring to mind. If you’re on the fly, drop in for a quick pick-me-up — the coffee gets plenty of compliments and the fresh juices will pop some pep in your step.

When it comes to lunch and dinner, pizzas are the lifeblood of this well-known establishment and have always been a draw card for locals and day visitors alike. They keep it simple with fresh flavours, and it just feels right to be sitting by the sea eating a prawn pizza, don’t you think? But if pizza isn’t your jam, dive head first into a creamy risotto or a saucy pasta instead.

With views for days and plenty of space, it’s no surprise that Stella is a popular spot for a soiree!

Offering both sit down and cocktail options, the perfect party at Stella is just waiting for you.
