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.

it was okay, Member moepropane

i came to grimaldi's thinking it was the best pizza in new york, according to reviews. I did not find this to be true, I have traveled the world, i have had pizza made in italy and i can honestly say this does not compare. If you are looking for a comparable pizza, I would recommend Toscanos I was there today and it was the best one I had in new york so far!
