Good take out pizza in North Beach

Our family is renting an apt in North Beach. I would like recommendations for a good take out pizza place in the area. My kids love Costco cheese. The adults are looking for something more refined - good crust (not Chicago, deep dish style) and fresh toppings.

Thanks for the input!

  1. L'Osteria del Forno, try the porcini. (I presume they have takeout.)

    You might also try Golden Boy and the foccaccia at Liguria Bakery.

    1. Take out but not delivery - Tommaso on Kearny. Delicious brick oven Italian style.

        Tommaso's is great. I never thought of getting takeout from them.

        North Beach Pizza is bad. Your kids might like it.

        L'Osteria del Forno
        519 Columbus Ave, San Francisco, CA 94133

        Tommaso Ristorante Italiano
        1042 Kearny St, San Francisco, CA 94133

        Golden Boy Pizza
        542 Green St, San Francisco, CA 94133

          Take-out from Tommaso's is a great way to beat the lines. Call and your order is ready in 20 minutes for pick-up.

            Tomasso's delivers through Waiters on Wheels. There is a charge. The Front Room will deliver to that area and they are a lot better than North Beach Pizza.

            Check the yellow pages too for pizza delivery. Lots of places deliver out of the area. Avoid Mr. Pizza Man. I've never tried Samba Rooms. They are Brazilian and located inear Ghiradelli Square.

            Here are a few more pizza delivery places. Some are only good for late night (like 3am ... my guess is Le Petit Marchant falls in that category) and others might not deliver to North Beach, but it doesn't hurt to call. I'd skip Cable Car and Viva ... though the kids might like that.

        2. For take-out, I'd also go with the rec for Tommaso for whole pies. If you just want a slice or two of thick-crust, then Golden Boy.

          If you want to sit down for a quick and inexpensive pizza meal, here's my recent post on Cinecitta vs. L'Osteria.
