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!

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.

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.
