Piedmont Ave.: new Ethiopian, low-fat gelato, OK Italian-American

Robert Lauriston | Nov 22, 2005 12:56 PM

Noticed a couple of new places on Piedmont in Oakland the other night: Messob Ethiopian, 4301 Piedmont (just south of Pleasant Valley), and right next door a low-fat gelato place that hadn't opened yet.

I heard from a friend from New Jersey that the pastas at Lococo's were good, so we tried them. Spaghetti and meatballs, cannelloni, ravioli, all OK but as typical for American pizzerias not as good as the pizza, especially the unusual fresh-ricotta flat pizza.
