Best NY Style Pizza in Texas

You can have it simple - pepperoni or just cheese. Great thin, crispy pizza with a light glaze of marinara. Reminds me of any pizza shop in Manhattan! Simple seating that wraps around the wood fired oven. Not particularly romantic, but hey you're there for pizza right? And did you know they have an... read more

Simple seating that wraps around the wood fired oven. Not particularly romantic, but hey you're there for pizza right? And did you know they have an awesome Greek salad?

My girlfriend and I had planned on visiting Grimaldi's during our previous three trips to Allen however, we never made it. This time we made sure we got there and were very happy with our visit. We were travelling with our 15-month old and meeting up with my girlfriend's brother. We went on a Wednesday night and the place was... More

Grimaldi's pizza was tasty. Their menu is limited though. If your group doesn't all agree on pizza there isn't much else on the menu except salad or calzone. The appetizer we had was so-so (Caprese salad) Had to add your own oil/balsamic/salt/pepper. It was just tomatoes, cheese and basil on a plate. Dessert was standard. They have an extensive patio...

After recently being in Brooklyn NY this past summer I was surprised to see we have several Grimaldi's in the Metroplex. I took my family on a week night and was anxious to see if the product matched the hype. I consider myself somewhat of a well traveled pizza connoisseur, so I thought I knew what to expect. The restaurant... More

Took over an hour to get our pizza! When it finally did arrive, it was cold. Thank goodness we were sitting on the patio and could listen to Christmas music and watch the lights. Wouldn't visit again!

This is as good a New York style pizza I've ever eaten. Fresh Mozzarella and toppings and custom to your specs. Crust is spot-on delicious. Service is great notwithstanding restaurant is always crowded. Reservations a must on weekends especially. If pizza is your thing, this is THE PLACE!

I do not like any kind of red sauce. Someone called me a pizza snob, so be it. I love their many options & # of toppings. That's where they may catch you...a $20 pizza can turn into a $30 one very quickly. So it's a bit or rather, can be a bit pricey, the pizza is wonderful & seasonings... More

We stopped in for lunch while shopping and I'm glad we did. We had the best Ceasar salad we'd had in a long time and both of our pizzas were very good. I would give them 5 stars if there were more toppings on the pizzas we ordered. They were very sparse. If you want a "normal" amount of topping,... More
