So delicious. I had the garlic clam slice and it just melted in my mouth. Incredible flavour and so satisfying. Highly recommended.

Awesome square cut pizza slices on Green Street. I tried the sausage which was fabulous and my wife was raving about the Pepperoni as well. About $4 for a slice. I also loved the lively vibe of the neighbourhood. Highly recommended.

A brilliant place we were recommended from a local tour and came back again it was so special. Big pizza fans and did not dissapoint on thick pan based style. We tried the Italian sausage, clam and garlic and pepperoni and so magical. We got...a drink in the lovely bar next door and sat in the sun enjoying.More

This isn't really our sort of pizza - thick bready base and the herbs so heavy the top basically looks green. I tried the clam pizza, I wasn't loving it. As I say, though, I think its just not to my taste rather than being...average.More

Golden Boy Pizza uses fresh ingredients that make the pizza delicious. The crust is thick, but it is light and crispy. This is take out only. Pick up a slide and enjoy it at the park two blocks away!

I've been eating slices to go since my law school days. So I don't have any preconceived notions on what to expect from this delightful hole in the wall. As another poster stated, so ial media has changed the way we view everything now, sadly....This is an unpretentious take out spot, always has been, and it serves great pies. If you're looking for a Tik Tok experience, perhaps this might not be for you. It's like Cafe Trieste nearby: unapologetically North Beach. And that can be good! I took my piece of combo pie out to the park and listened to the noontime bells from St. Peter and Paul church ring a lunchtime melody. It was a nice spring day (rare, I know), which made things even nicer. By all means, if you want to partake, please do so. Just don't complain about the lack of selfie walls, matcha desserts, or a trendy atmosphere. This is not that place. But that doesn't mean it's an awful spot.More

I used to go here years ago and recommended it to everyone. Great crust, thick, juicy toppings, and sit down at the counter with a pitcher of beer. Went here during the pandemic, and it was clear success had hit the place. Crowded, long lines,...and the pizza was junk. Demands like ordering at least half a sheet, and other annoyances. What was a San Francisco treat is now a tourist trap. It's sad when you lose things you used to love. sites like tripadvisor and yelp are a curse as well as a blessing.More

Golden Boy delight, visited for a pizza, bought the large and wasn’t disappointed. We have been to Italy, Sicilia, and this pizza from Golden boy was excellent. Choice was limited, however, very tasty, fresh and plenty of toppings, would recommend.

Average pizza with nowhere to eat it. I was hopeful when I saw all the raving reviews, but have to admit I was disappointed. The pizza was decent, average. Nothing spectacular and not authentic "straight out of Italy" italian pizza. Similar to Pizza Hut (or...other American pizza joints). Pricing wasn't bad (under $4 a square slice). Absolutely no where to eat it. It's a take out stand but no benches or even a curb or ledge to eat from. Have to walk around the corner to the park. I'm sure there's better authentic pizza in the area (which is a great location to visit!)More

We visited Golden Boy when we were in SF in March and couldn't wait to return to grab a few more slices. In fact, on our return trip, we walked from the Marina area to Golden Boy and figured we would burn the calories we...were about to consume. You order at the window and eat on the street or walk to a nearby park. The combo pizza was soooo good and we look forward to returning.More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and wanted a quick bite to eat for dinner as we had just arrive in San Francisco. We walked along the street and seen a large queue outside Golden Boy so we decided to give it a bash...and we were not disappointed. The pizza was amazing. We went back three times over our stay in SF and every single time no matter what toppings, the pizza was incredible. The staff were also very chilled and friendly and if you are looking for some pizza in SF during your visit then I would highly recommend this place.More
