Pizzeria | Alameda, East Bay

Consistency is key, and all of the different Star restaurants always deliver on this concept. The thin crust Italian Combo pizza is a favorite, and it always leaves me feeling satisfied. Kick back a couple of El Cubano drinks if you're in the mood top have a great time. I always leave this joint feeling satisfied! More

We had a great time as we were celebrating my daughter-in-law‘s new job which starts tomorrow. Marco is an excellent server and our food came quickly and we had all the help we needed in a very timely manner. We had a great time. This is the place of the three of us have enjoyed twice in the last month. We previously came on April 29 and we enjoyed it so much then that it was an easy pick for us to come again tonight. More

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Pier 29 Waterfront Restaurant. We were there on a rainy weekday so it was pretty quiet. There is patio seating which looked nice. But on a rainy day it wasn't an option. We had clam chowder, fish and chips and a crab/shrimp Louie salad. Everything was excellent. We highly recommend this restaurant. More

Italian | Alameda, East Bay

Spectacular meal. What we had: We each got a glass of house wine--3 of us with the red blend and Mom with the Cab. It was a special Mother's Day menu, with the dishes served family style, which fit us very well. We got a smoked-salmon appetizer to start that was lovely, then a gnocchi with a gorgonzola cream sauce. Then we got a mozzarella ravioli with a smoked salmon sauce, and finally an eggplant parmigiana with caponata (eggplant/veg stew) on the side, with garlic-sauteed spinach. A wonderful meal, and just the right amount of food. Mom got super tired, so we skipped dessert, although the lemon cake sounded just delectable. Service was excellent. More

We came for an early dinner, so the hostess was amused that I made reservations. Regardless, I hate long waits, so I always think it safer to make a reservation. I've been to CK once before, but that was for brunch. I was impressed with the food, so thought it was time to try dinner. The food was impressive and beautifully displayed. We started out with salads. The Caesar salad was average. I only order it because it had anchovies, but it wasn't anything special. I wish I had what my daughter ordered: the beet and farro salad. It large enough to split. She raved about it. I had the prosciutto wrapped prawns over mashed potatoes with peas and a pea puree, as well as a carrot puree. Beautiful and very tasty. My daughter had the salmon with a pureed cauliflower, I believe. She practically licked her plate clean. My husband had the grilled prawns, probably the least impressive of the three, although still delicious. He thought it was too rich. For dessert (of course!), we had the mango panna-cotta. Delicious! If it's rich, it's deceiving. It tasted so light. Let me live with my fantasy! I'd order it again. CK is one of the nicer restaurants in town. It makes a great date night dinner, but also a friendly neighborhood place, especially with the bar. I hope to visit again soon! More

Our authentic BBQ starts in a live-wood smoker stoked with genuine hickory logs. Our pitmasters hand-rub the meats with a custom blend of spices and cook for hours to extract the natural flavors. We source the highest quality meats and trim them up like we’re in a competition and hand-rub them with the freshest seasonings available to create mouthwatering experiences! In addition to our BBQ and grilled meats, our menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, side items, and made-from-scratch desserts.More
