“Some say as close to the perfect pizza you can get”

Peter Sodini's vision of the perfect pizza is the concept of Golden Boy Pizza. The perfect pizza would consist of a fresh baked, delicious, foccacia with pizza topping. In 1978, at the age of 19, Peter took his vision of the perfect pizza to the next level.  He opened up the first Golden Boy Pizza on Green Street in San Francisco’s North Beach. Golden Boy Pizza quickly became the "place to be" in North Beach. Golden Boy Pizza was so popular it expanded to seven restaurants throughout the city and Berkeley.  The business even started selling wholesale to delicatessens and schools. Peter Sodini went on to purchase Green Valley Restaurant and now owns Sodini’s Bertoluccis in South San Francisco. Peter eventually scaled down his operation, but kept his flagship Golden Boy Pizza in San Francisco’s North Beach. Golden Boy Pizza has continued to thrive in San Francisco’s North Beach.  It is now managed and operated by Peter’s sons. The legacy of Golden Boy Pizza continues, with the next generation planning to expand once again!
