Loved this place! Great crowd, great food, fun scene. Delicious thin crust pizza of course, but was also very impressed by the appetizers. Light crispy fried Calamari was exceptional, obviously fried at a high temp in clean oil giving it a very light, crispy, but...More

Famous for its pizza, you must try their thin crust pizza. There are unique toppings, but we stayed with the usual meatball and mushrooms. The fried calamari is awesome and the salads are enormous. The eggplant and portabella mushroom appetizer is outstanding. Nice bar with...More

Great for Group pizza party after a high school football game. Delicious pizza pies with many choices of topping for order and pickup for family Monday or Thursday game night pizza dinners.

The place seemed like a corner family pizza joint. Quite busy for lunchtime. The pizza itself was okay, very heavy on the grease, and a little thin / lacking good dough flavor for my taste. Service was mostly friendly and without delay.

My wife took me here, she had told me about it. Since I grew up in Brooklyn, I always claim the best pizza is from New York. But the Star Tavern is as good as any great pizza in NYC.

Went to the Star for the 1st time in years last night. Loved it. The line to get a table was a little crazy the way it snakes through the tables. Constantly getting out of the way of the staff. The wait wasn’t too bad...More

My mother loves the linguini with clams and the shrimp in garlic basket. She recommends staying away from the calamari and the meat dishes.
