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!

This is a quick walk from my office so I often go here when I want a square of pizza. The pizza is on display in the front window. You pick a piece, they put it on a baking sheet and it crisps up nicely....More

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.

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.
