    The best is the vegetarian ($3.75), with slices of zucchini, black olives, tomatoes, onions, pesto, loads of cheese and a pleasantly bread-like crust with crisped edges. Read more

    This is what in Italy we call "pizza al taglio". The pizza is not the most authentic (you know, pepperoni ain't a thing back there) but it's great! I go for the cheese and the vegetarian.

    Mmm delicious sicilian style square pizzas by the slice! Crust is thick and doughy yet still crispy and crunchy. Clam-garlic pizza is $3.75 cash only and pretty fishy... Bar and counter seating only.

    The only place worth going to for a late night in North Beach. Cash only. Totally worth the wait, plus the service is surprisingly nice ✨

    Golden Boy Pizza serves up amazing square Silician slices so good that even this native NJ/NYer loves. Don't miss the Garlic & Clam Slice and read all about my visit on WinstonWanders below!! Read more

    Pesto vegetarian pizza is just amazing. But really amazing.

    Golden Boy Pizza has been a favorite in the neighborhood for so long. The secret behind this is that their pizzas are consistently delicious, with a perfect balance of sauce, cheese, and toppings!!!

    The crust is a perfect mixture of crisp and soft at the same time. Great place to grab pizza and beer. Or take your slice to-go. These guys do pizza right.

    Had it two nights in a row, had all 6 variations, they are all incredible. Garlic and clam and Combo at the top of the list, but you can't go wrong!

    If you have enough people, grab a spot inside while the other waits in line. Be sure to have your cash ready, but once you're inside there's beer and good times.

    Relatively thicker crust - so soft, so delightful - their combination, vegetarian pesto, and garlic clam are my go-to choices. Just get them all dang it!

    Best Sicilian pizza in the city, especially late night. Garlic and clam is my go-to, but everything is top-notch and cheesy.

    The best slice in SF. Punk rock vibes, craft beer, and outstanding Sicilian style pizza. Can request edge, corner, or center pieces.

    Cash only but they have a decent selection of beers on tap (draught). Their liquor license requires you to consume all booze by 1:00 am.

    Here since '78 for good reason - simple recipes = great food! I've had their pizza since '84! You can't go wrong with any slice, Clam & Garlic, the Combo, and Pesto Veggie are must-haves!

    Excellent for take out or for a quick sit and eat at the counter. Try their clam pizza and pesto vegetarian too. Bring cash- no cards here!

    Love the corner slices filled with clams and garlic; or if I have to interact with others after I get the (non-veggie) combo slice.

    Pizza is good and crispy. A slice and a beer will run you about $8-10, less if you get a soda instead. Cash only (ATM on premises), line starts out the door.

    They only make 1 pie of sausage at any given time. It is both the most rare and the most tasty.

    The best pizza by the slice in the city! Get two slices, they are very reasonably priced. The place is tiny though, so you probably won't sit down.

    One slice of clam and garlic to go, eaten at Washington Square Park is an SF must-do

    I've become somewhat of a regular here and I keep coming back for the sausage pizza! It's absolutely addicting. Add some chili pepper flakes for some spice action.

    The clam and garlic pizza lived up to the other reviews. And the pepperoni was delicious. 2 slices and a drink for $8.

    Cash only. Well worth the visit. Come for the simple recipes but great slice of pizza in this 80s dinner-eques space. Mind the homeless outside.

    Sicilian (rectangular) pizza that could stand its own in a New York pizza shop. Pan pizza with a thicker tomato sauce than your typical NY pie.

    Corner slice of the veggie pesto. That’s all you need to know.

    This place is great. Arguably in the top three beat pizza places in the city. Only flaw is that it's cash only but worth the hassle. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Not a lot of meat but the crust is perfect and the sauce is packed with flavor. Best north beach hangover cure after closing. Goto: garlic and clam. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    This is Sicilian style pizza. It's not a New York slice, but it holds its own better than almost every other pizza in SF. The regular cheese and clam & garlic pizzas are both excellent.

    Pretty good late night pizza spot. Big greasy slice. There can be a line but when you're sloshed that doesn't matter.

    FFS is it even chemically possible to put more salt in pizza sauce?? These guys are basically Little Caesar's with fancier toppings- not worth the heart attack unless you're drunk out of your mind.

    The staff pick the music via their personal iPods - almost always 80's and 90's punk rock though the new girl has some ska for variety.
