We had an hour plus wait elsewhere so decided to cancel the reservation and try Golden-boy’s around the corner. It’s really a walk up to counter by the slice place. Everyone in our group ordered the pesto vegetarian except one ordered the clam. I noticed...More

The place is really unassuming but don’t get discouraged. It is one of the best simple pizza I ever had. Really plain, not fancy but with a delicious dough and lots of cheese.

I lived in SF for 30+yrs. been gone for 6 yrs and it was just as I had remembered. Worth the wait, especially on a Friday night. Yum. Thick pan pizza that’s not dry and fully flavorful. A lot has changed since I’ve been gone,...More

Many places that have a line don't quite meet full expectations once you're through the wait. Golden Boy is worth the wait.

Found this place by chance. Some of the best pizza I've ever had and nice to find affordable food in San Francisco :) Be aware, they only take cash.

This place is just cool; been around for a long time in the same location. All the locals know about it; great pan pizza by the slice.

They sell by the slice which is great as you can then try different types of pizza. Had only 2 slices and i was quite full, but totally enjoyed it. It's not your classic Italian pizza, but still really good.

Wait in line worth it! Stand and eat inside worth it! Clam pizza AMAZING. Cheese pizza wonderful. Veggie pizza great!! Will go back again and again.

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.
