    This places serves amazing pizza. The thin crust pizza has is super crunchy all the way in the middle. No soggy crust. The deep dish pizza is really a whole another pizza experience. Worth the try!

    Probably the best deep dish pizza I have had in SF. I prefer This place over Patxi's or Blue Line. The extra bit of garlic makes all the difference i think.

    The deep dish restores our faith in pies that, who are we kidding, should really be considered casseroles. Their cornmeal crust is light but sturdy enough to stand up to an inch-deep pile of toppings. Read more

    Cornmeal thin crust is my favorite pizza in sf. Garlic bread + small half white pie and half garlic, kale, & fontina (special on blackboard) + wine = 🌟

    Garlic bread is divine. Deep dish takes 30 min but can order ahead while waiting for a table. White pie with zucchini and tomatoes on a cornmeal thin crust is amazing. $1 extra for a half/half pizza.

    Deep dish is so good and filling, and the thin crust is great too. The crusts on both are awesome - crunchy, a little buttery, and with great flavor. Great for takeout and delivery

    The best place to have a deep dish pizza in San Francisco. Try Little Star, you will never find the same in any other place.

    Try more than 1 flavour easy with the half and half option for a dollar extra. Skip the kale and if you’re feeling extra ambitious, get the garlic bread.

    The deep dish pizza is miles away from Pizzeria Due & Geno’s East in Chicago. Locally, Zelda’s in Sacramento is prb the best deep dish pie. Thin crust pizza is excellent here as is the service

    The original Divisadero Little Star sports a jukebox that some may think sounds dated now where you're going to find the likes of Pearl Jam, Elliott Smith, Andre 3000, and even Madonna. Read more

    Recommend going deep dish 1/2 mediterranean chicken and 1/2 little star. Cornmeal crust makes the pizza. Crust is crispy and thick, so no soggy pizza!

    Little star deep dish pizza (this is your pizza if u like lots of sauce and a crispy crust), good bottled root beer, fresh delish seasonal tomatoes in the caprese salad and good garlic bread!

    Chicken Wings 🍗 are real nice. Pro tip: order extra blue cheese sauce to put on the pizza 😋

    Cheesy and indulgent without being greasy! Great deep dish and thin crust pizza, although the deep dish had way more tomato than expected, still delicious though.

    Love the deep-dish vegetarian and the thin-crust Italian Combo. But there's often a wait at night, so be ready to kill some time.

    Try Patxis first, then you will truly appreciate how good little star is. get a sausage, spinach, mushroom deep dish. it's the best combo!

    At Little Star, you can opt for thin crust, but the deep dish is a doughy, cheesy behemoth that’ll make you feel transplanted to Chicago. Read more

    The first time someone ordered the thin crust pizza I mocked them. Now, I realize one of the best things on the menu (Greek thin) was hiding in plain sight all along.

    They serve both thin and thick crust and they do both options just right. Daily specials change constantly and seasonally and always surprise. No reservations and cash only.

    Get the Sausage and Mushroom Deep Dish and choose a beer or wine from their well thought out list.

    Deep dish pizza here is best in the Bay Area. I think it’s better than most places in Chicago

    It's tempting to devote the entire meal to deep dish deliciousness but save room for the yummy mixed salad.

    Both the deep dish and thin crust are good. The Mediterranean Chicken is particularly good.

    Waiting for a table? Put your deep dish order in ahead of time. The "little star" with basil added is the best.

    Authentic Chicago style deep dish. PS: Chicagoans only eat it when guests are in town.

    Try the little star deep dish (add pepperoni minus onions) if you'd like to blow your very own mind
