Golden Boy Pizza knows how to bake pizza using different ingradients. I went there along with my friends to dine and enjoyed fine menu. Reasonable price and good ambience. Cool place to hang out

Awesome pizza by the slice at a ridiculously cheap price. The line up is well worth the wait. Expect to eat standing up amongst like minded gourmets. Eclectic wall coverings...

As a New York resident I know great pizza. I've got to admit Golden boy is in a very special class of pizza, as good as I've ever had. So if you're in the mood for a slice; head over to North Beach, you will...More

I had heard this is an institution in Little Italy. At 2 pm, there was no line. I ordered slices of pepperoni and slices of sausage pizza to go. Cash only. The thick focaccia had a thin layer of cheese with several pieces of meat...More

Great spot for pizza by the slice. Usually a line even at opening time. Love their pizza. Definitely a must try when in San Francisco. Parking can be a challenge but worth your time.

This place takes cash only. They have five types of pizza squares and good selection of beers on tap. There's always a line but it moves quickly. You can also sit inside although limited. Two pieces get you going but does not fill your belly....More

We stood in line outside for about 20 minutes and boy was it worth the wait! True Italian pizza on thick Focaccia bread. I had the garlic and clam and my boyfriend had the vegetarian. Both were great. Bring cash though that’s all they take!

You could miss this place because its so small. But you wont because its bright pink! Awesome pizza and staff is very attentive.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
