Things are looking good for the opening of ~LITTLE STAR PIZZA~’s third location in Albany this week. (Sorry, San Francisco, you already have two locations.) Owners Brian Sadigursky and Jon Guhl will be offering a similar menu to the SF locations (my favorite deep dish to order from them is the “Brass Monkey,” an off-the-menu variation of the Little Star, but with sausage). They will start out doing dinner only, but will introduce lunch service after getting a good foundation in place. The interior space of the restaurant is light and airy, and they intend to be very family friendly. They also plan to expand their seating outdoors, which should work well with the East Bay climate. The soft opening is this Thursday, and they hope to be able to serve beer and wine, but the answer we’re getting in our ABC Magic 8-Ball is “Cannot predict now.” 1175 Solano Ave., Albany; 510-526-7827 (STAR).
