Guide Review - Grimaldi's Pizzeria
Grimaldi's Pizzeria is undoubtedly worth the wait to enjoy their delicious coal oven pizza. The atmosphere: Red and white checked tablecloths, Sinatra or Pavarotti emanate from the jukebox, and photographs of Sinatra, Brando and other famous Italians cover the walls. A perfectly casual setting, as suited for families and groups as it is for couples (this pizza is SURE to dazzle any date). The pizza is thin-crust, coal-oven pizza at its best -- the sauce is smoky and has delicious chunks of tomato as well as fresh herbs; home-made fresh mozzarella tops the pie; and the range of toppings includes everything from sweet Italian sausage to roasted red peppers made in Grimaldi's famous ovens.
