Stella Rossa

Pizza stars at this Santa Monica restaurant, but on Saturdays and Sundays, there are now brunch items to pick from too. The amped-up croquet-madame–a slab of toast topped with ham, Mornay, bacon aioli, mustard and a fried egg–is not a breakfast for the faint of heart. And pizza, especially if it's topped with sausage, should feature in any brunch eaten at Stella Rossa.
