“is in DUMBO, just over the Brooklyn Bridge, and can easily serve as a jumping off point for a great walk (or bike ride) into the city, and a view of the new Waterfalls exhibit on display through the fall.”
“Would be nice if you could order half a pie and not an entire one.”
“To drink, order a beer or soda but if you ask for wine, don't expect anything memorable.”
“It is better than John's (although I still like their pizza too).”
“Limited wine selection but the service is quick and the pizza is consistently great.”
“It's a nice, comfortable place.”
“Can't wait to go back; this pizza was amazing!”
“Anyway, I would not recommend this place - there are tons of other pizza places in the city that offer terrific pizza with great service.”
“After reading about Grimaldi's I took a 45 minute ride to check out their pizza,it was over priced over cooked and their cheese must have been made of gold because the pizza had very little of it,the next time I want great pizza I'll save some cash save s”
“Lines can be long - very long! Service is pretty crappy, but welcome to New York! Tables are very close together (not meant for today's heavier Americans) - and can be pretty noisy. Not the best place to take a date if you actually interested in having a ”
Good not great.
The pizza is very good, but the attitude is so bad that I'd rather support establishments that make pizza that does not taste as good but puts at least some effort into customer service. For a list of the top 10 restaurants https://files.nyu.edu/jdy215/public
DEFINITELY stands up to the hype.
My husband and I are pizza lovers, so naturally before visiting NYC from Australia, I did a little research about where to get the best pizza. Grimaldi's came up time and time again so I made sure it was on our agenda.
Such the perfect way to top off a walk across the Brooklyn bridge. The area in Brooklyn Heights has a real historic feel and fabulous for your senses, The Gramaldi building is an old bank and has a lot of character inside and out. When we walked in, we were surprised by how fresh and modern it was,
The pizza certainly didn't disappoint, it was EXACTLY what you would hope you pizza would taste like. The best part is that you get presented with a blank canvas to make your own pizza, so you are getting exactly what you want.
The service was fast but I didn't feel rushed. Not overly friendly... they let the pizza do the talking. The restaurant is CASH ONLY. I recommend the visit.
MY BOYFRIEND HAS AN ADDICTION TO THIS PLACE!.
"Let's go to Grimaldi's!" This statement is expressed to me from my boyfriend no less than 5 times a month. We live about 20 minutes from Grimaldis and there is SOME GOOD DARN PIZZA in our neighborhood and well, within a 5 minute drive or train ride of us and STILL he MUST go to Grimaldis... NEED I SAY MORE? LOL
Long wait for good pizza.
there seems to be a general feeling of love/hate with this place, which i'm saying is due to the wait. the pizza is good. The sauce is kind of sweet and the crust is thinish and crispy, the way that a good brick oven pie should be and the way that many places fail to make them. if you like dominos, thick crusted pies, or really topping heavy pies, you won't like this pizza. It's meant to be light and thats the way you should order it. Get it plain and you probably won't be disappointed.
