I feel like you can smell the deliciousness from a block away! Huge square slices. Decent variety. Super flavorful. The line was long & there really isn't too much seating inside. We took the family, ordered to go & enjoyed our slices on the bed of our truck people watching. One slice is plenty! Really quick service. Super yummy pizza.... More

This is a hole in the wall pizza place wou can grab some of the best pizza I have ever tasted. I highly recommend the garlic and clam pizza although every one looked and smelled great.

We stopped by on the day they reopened after Christmas. The line waiting for them to open was down the street. It's delicious pizza served pan crust in squares. They have coke products and are cash only. Seating inside is limited, so grab it to go.

Stopped in here after walking around town , great pizza and they have several nice craft beers on tap , we got lucky I guess because after we took a seat and got our food a line formed out the door , if ever in town I would make a return trip for sure

If you love pizza (and as a New Yorker who does!!) you won't be disappointed. Lines are worth the wait, izza is always fresh (they are busy) but no ambiance. Just good food.

Its a popular place seeing the line and was not disappointed. At $3.5 a slice, its freshly prepared , hot from the oven lands right onto your plate. Had the Pepperoni & Sausage slices with Pale Ale..recommend going here. They only accept cash, there is an ATM inside for any withdrawal to pay.. upfront payment with the order.

Passed this little pizza/bar joint and saw the pan pizza squares in the window. Looked good, tasted great with a coke. Place is set up more for a very quick bite or take out. Good fresh toppings and taste. Would come back.

The dudes behind the counter were chill and nice af. The pizza is amazing. The place has good vibes and people put like their band stickers and stuff all over the wall so that was pretty sweet. They accept CASH ONLY. There's an ATM in the back but it charges you a crapload of course to get money out. Bathroom... More

Good find on Green Street. Just look thru the window at the 6 styles of pizza made. Must try combo and pesto garlic. It is CASH ONLY. Since 1978, this small now institution cranks out the hot melt in mouth pizza at quick pace. Makes you salivate! Good beer selection too. Yum!Friendly service. Definitely recommend! . Highly recommend

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
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. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
