  • "The taste of the food did not meet our expectations. The service was quite poor as well. "

  • "So glad we discovered Little Star a few months ago. The Goddess Salad is fantastic and the pizza exceptionally good! Service great this time for our big birthday group."

  • "The service at Little Star was TERRIBLE. There were 8 in our group including small children. The place was NOT very busy when we arrived yet we had to wait 20 minutes after being seated before any waitperson showed would take our orders. The food was fine but hardly worth the long, needless wait."

  • "The food was great as usual. Service was a different story. The restaurant was nearly empty and they would not accomodate us changing tables to a spot not in the sun. Server was not his jovial self and was not very helpful in other requests."

  • "I've never been a big fan of deep dish because I always found it to be so heavy that it would sit in my stomach like a ton of lead. I had only tried the other deep dish in town so I had no other point of reference until now. Long story short, the cornmeal crust makes all the difference in the world. It is light, textured and holds up well to the toppings. Once you go Little Star, you will never want to go back to any other deep dish pizza. Oh, and get the signature Little Star, delicious!"

  • "Love the wood and warmth of the interior at this spot on Solano, near the Albany Movie Theater. Service is efficient and cordial, leaving you free to focus on your companion(s) and conversation. The pizza is delicious, with a crispy crust that is unexpected given the deep dish of juicy tomatoes, cheese and your other selection of ingredients. I think it is the freshness of the ingredients that really make this pizza a farm-to-table standout. Definitely will go again!"

  • "If you're looking for a change from Zachary's, this is the place. I actually choose this place over Zachary's. They have great topping choices, including roasted garlic and roasted zucchini. They serve both deep dish and thin crust, but I've never had thin crust. Their garlic bread appetizer is just sourdough bread, roasted garlic, and softened butter. Highly recommended, and always delicious. They have local beers on tap and in stock. Their atmosphere is a little tight and quite loud, but it's a great place to hang out with friends, or go on date #15. Best part: their crust is CORNMEAL; it's not gooey, just delicious. When we went with an OpenTable reservation, we got there early, but still got seated immediately. How awesome is that?"

  • "We were a group of 4 adults that wanted a bite to eat and a beer before going to an appoint at 7p.m. It was great food, great service and a good place to go. We will head back there again soon. The White pie was outstanding!"

  • "Deep dish - too few mushrooms and light on the sausage. Crust was a coarse meal (almost a corn bread), next lots of cheese, then your selected items and topped off with a thick tomato sause. Average."

  • "Yes the pizza here is very good. One of my favorite, however, the real star of this place for me is the WINGS. I dont know what they marinate or rub them with but it is simply the best!! They aren't messy with unnecessary sauces. They are packed with robust smoky flavor and just enough heat. I will drive all the way from the 209 for these wings! Also, the services is always great! Very friendly and timely. Will definitely be back soon!"

  • "Popular place. Great pizza. Make reservations if you want a table!"

  • "Little Star messed up reservations and we waited (big group) an hour to be seated. Sucked. But they treated for free 1st round of drinks and let us wait at the bar. Service thus 1 star for goof and 5 stars for make-up equals 3 stars. Thin pizza yum - 15 minutes to make. Deep dish 30 minutes (never tried because thin is so good.)"

  • "So happy that Little Star decided to open up their first restaurant in the East Bay in Albany! Out of all the places, Solano Ave was the one. It's a quick walk from my boyfriend's house and a favorite of ours. We introduced it to so many of our friends who come to visit. They're usually always busy, so I like making reservations ahead, especially through Open Table. It makes it so easy. I always get their deep dish pizza, spicy wings, and a salad here. To share of course. ;)"

  • "Little Star is excellent if you are a fan of thin crust pizza. The ingredients are fresh and the pizzas are remarkably yummy. The ambiance during our visit was less than enjoyable, simply because there was a table of small children whose parents apparently think it's okay to allow their children to use a restaurant's silverware and dishes as musical instruments. Frankly, I go out to dinner and spend money to enjoy the relaxation afforded by escaping my own kitchen now and then. Uncontrolled kids should be left at home or charged extra! But enough of that rant. Go to Little Star, by all means. It's delicious and the staff is very pleasant. But be sure to reserve a table or you could be faced with an hour-long wait list (it's that good)!"

  • "Frequent guest, always content. Deep Dish takes long to cook, especially on busy nights. I recommend you relax, have a beer, order salad, chat with company, and revel in the fact that you're out. Its worth the wait! Re: price point complaints; take-out and saves $, or enjoy lower priced lunch. Staff's always been courteous & professional. Some have been more "friendly" than others, but service has never lagged. Only issue I've ever had with Little Star is limited draft beer options, which they do augment with bottled beers. Its Pizza, which = families; don't feign shock at sight & sound of children. If you've got a hungry clan, call in pizza order ahead or make reservations and order ASAP. Any pizza is better with Racer 5! Come Hungry."

  • "This place HANDS DOWN has the best deep dish pizza around. Its light cornmeal crust does it for me every time!! Whether deep dish or thin crust both have the same delicious crust!! The chicken wings & bleu cheese have a great flavor as well!! I would highly recommend this place to come for great pizza. The seating is a bit tight and this isn't the best place for crowds but the food is amazing."

  • "My family comes here for every birthday and anniversary. We love Ronnie he's our favorite waiter and does a wonderful job! Unfortunately he moved to a different location so our last experience for my sisters birthday sucked. Go Ronnie or go home!"
