Check out a bit about us in this Berkeleyside article of openings and closures in the area for January 2018!

Little Star Pizza

Two years ago, today, the world found hope when the New York Post ran this story. It’s actually an interesting story how Pasquale Cozzolino lost weight. Read below!

The All-Star: bacon, sausage, meatballs and pepperoni. Serious meat-eaters only. Get one delivered!

Brining in the new year with the first special of 2018 —sweet potatoes, bacon, kale on garlic infused olive oil base, topped with crumbled goat cheese. Can’t forget the roasted brussels sprouts to go with it. January only.

If you're looking for a quick bite, especially in the morning, try the warm sourdough with butter and roasted garlic paired with a cup of coffee. The butter and roasted garlic cloves spread easily on the slices and make's a great snack or appetizer.

Sip responsibly. Happy Friday, Happy Hour.
