We came here one night in search of a fairly quick dinner option. Pizza was really tasty and well priced, great fast service as well. Don't be deterred if there's a line out the door - it moves quickly. We chose to eat in but...More

It was fast cheap and decent pizza but not sure what all the hype is about? I would have preferred a different option for pizza.

Golden Boy Pizza features a few tables, a counter and pizza, and this is all you will find here. Italian-speaking locals mix with people from all over who come here for slices or whole pies made with focaccia dough, thick and dripping with olive oil that makes a napkin required with every bite. The toppings are piled just as thick and are similarly, no frills. No goat cheese here, but you will find the classics such as pepperoni, mushrooms and even pesto!
