Sourdough & Roasted Garlic

Our fav Oakland pizza + cocktails joint. Went for the thin crust this time because we had to get to the City for a play. We had the Classic and enjoyed it, but missed the thick chunky tomato sauce on the deep dish. Will ask for extra sauce next time.
NYE dinner with friends.
The appetizer (roasted garlic and sour dough bread), seasonal chopped salad, and deep dish pizza were delicious. The cocktail and wine were great. This is an upscale, but casual pizza restaurant. High quality service. the items were timed nicely--not rushed and not too slow. Highly recommend.
The pizza was amazing and the service was great.
Hi Fatima, thank you for the kind review and support.
They were short staffed when we went so it’s unfair to complain
Thank you for your patience and support.
Great service great pizza. The inside is dark and look like an older place. I did thin it was nice. The neighborhood not so much
Thank you for the support.
Catch up dinner with a friend. Felt like a perfect homecoming!!
Great happy hour and fantastic service.
Thank you for the support.
Oakland stalwart for delicious pizza with a nice atmosphere
Great apps and beat deep dish you can find anywhere !
Waiter was fantastic and had really good recommendations. We definitely will be back!
Delicious pizza, great service & atmosphere!!! Thanks so much for a good experience out dining
Seasonal Fennel Sausage pizza was fantastic great crust fresh ingredients, atmosphere was nice but got busy once we arrived. Service was good
Thank you so much for this kind review and support. Hope to see you again soon.
Attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Food quality consistent and very satisfying. Lunch pizza special is a great value and just the right amount of pizza and flavors when paired with the appetizers.
Was going to start with Siete Leguas but they were out!!! Isaac suggested another. It was La Fortaleza Reposado, said I should like it. I DID! I then ordered a 9" Deep Dish Old School and added Roasted Chicken and Mushrooms. Again never ran out of water, the Tequila was great and Isaac was again a STAR.
Thank you so much for this kind review and rating. We are so glad you enjoyed your meal and look forward to seeing you soon.
We shared a bottle of prosecco and a gluten free crust pizza. My vegetarian husband had his half vegetables and I had the meat combo. Both were very delicious. This is a regular spot for us and I highly recommend it.
We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
Deep dish - ditch Zacharys and come here!
Good pizza and cocktails. Service and atmosphere where our favorite part.
So glad you enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you again soon.
First time visit, started with the small Seasonal Salad, it was fresh and NOT over dressed. Ordered a build your own thin crust, Salami, Chicken, Roasted Garlic, Red Onion, Raw Garlic with a Double Siete Leguas and 2 Carafes of water. Isaac was on point as he was the server-buss person-bartender, did all with ease, will return cause the pizza was very good.
Thank you so much for the feedback and support. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you soon. Appreciate the service shoutout as well.

Great gluten free pizza and amazing cocktails.
Thank you for the feedback and great rating. Hope to see you again soon.
Bad service, bad food
The Star is a regular spot of us and we love their gluten free crust pizza. We generally get it half and half with toppings which makes it feel like two different pizzas. It’s always enough for me and my spouse and we usually have a couple slices left over to take home. We also really enjoy their specialty cocktails and they take care to ensure that they use gluten free spirits if you ask. Always a good experience.
Hello, we are so flattered by this review. We always want to make sure every customer is taken care of and provided the best service. We appreciate your support and hope to see you again soon.
Amazing gluten free pizza and handcrafted cocktails.
So glad you enjoyed our gluten options and drinks, thank you for the support.
Fantastic pizza/salad/ sandwich place. Excellent food, spot on service, and nice ambiance in a cool old building. I highly recommend!
Hi Jeff, thank you so much for the review. We appreciate your recommendation and hope to see you again soon.
Love their food. Deep dish pizza and salad were delicious. It’s just post Covid restrictions, but service from seating to dining was slow, disorganized and disappointing. Hope they hang in there and adjust to the return to normalcy.
We love The Star! Great food, service and value. Do yourself a favor and check it out!❤️
Hi Lori, thank you for the review, we look forward to seeing you again and appreciate the support.
The Star is one of our favorite restaurants. The service is always great and their thin-crust pizzas and salads are delicious. They offer a full bar and varied wine selection. You're sure to have a great time there!
Hello, thank you for the great review. We appreciate the support and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Has been my go to family favorite, or couples favorite for 3 plus years. Soooo happy to be able to dine in again rather than takeout only AND the fact that they can only seat so many made it even more awesome. Less noise, more attention from staff, food was on par as usual. LOVE this spot!
Hi Melanie, thank you for the great review. We are so excited to be offering dine in seating again and are thrilled you enjoyed your experience. Look forward to seeing you soon.
I was truly looking forward to the pizza, I have had it before and it NEVER disappoints but I had no idea I was going to be floored by something as simple as roasted broccolini!!! It was SUPERB!!!! I WILL BE BACK AND SOON!!!
Hi Denine, thank you for the review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your service and the broccolini, we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Nice eating inside without anyone nearby. Limited number of tables so distancing was excellent. Server was great. Only negative was that the deep dish pizza was not hot when it came to the table. We didn't complain but probably should have.
Hi Susan, thank you for the review. I am deeply sorry to hear your pizza was not hot. Your comment is so helpful and allows us to create a better experience for our customers by gaining feedback.
Clunky entry at opening - some confusion of where customers are to interact with staff upon entering the restaurant. Otherwise charming, comfortable place to be, good food and drink. Something on the menu for everyone with hints and options for Vegans.
My fav is The Star on Park, but The Star on Grand is a treat!
Hi, thank you for the review. You feedback is under advisement and noted, we appreciate the feedback as it helps us provide the best experience for our customers. Hope to see you soon.
