I was out of town visiting my sister in Plano Texas. She was excited to take me to Grimaldi's raving about the pizza and salad. We started off with a mediterranean salad which was the first disappointment. $8 for a bowl of lettuce, two olives, a couple of pieces of feta cheese and tomatoes. After considerable time the waitress brought... More

Another trip yesterday to the Allen location for pizza with the family. The pizza is still one of the best around and our service was excellent even when we had a birthday coupon. Ordered the large salad which was very good. Yesterday was one-half price wines, however don't expect that to always be in place. Getting there early we were... More

I eat monthly at Grimaldi's restaurants all over the DFW metroplex but most often at the Allen location. I can't believe I have never reviewed Grimaldi's but apparently I haven't. The menu is not overwhelming and it's easy to mix and match styles and ingredients to get exactly the pizza you want as long as your ok with the best... More

By far one of the best pizza I have had. Highly recommend it.Usually gets crowded on the weekends so expect a wait to be seated.

Best pizza ever. Wait was about 45min but the pizza was worth the wait. Pesto pizza is the way to for sure. They give kids dough to play with but it makes a mess and they have to wash their hands afterwards before they eat. Prob won't do that again.

Grimaldi's never fails to offer top notch quality, service, and food. I'm not even a big pizza fan, and I love everything about this place. They offer a free birthday pizza if you sign up for their e-mails. The white pizza with onions is my favorite. The cheese pizza with sausage is also amazing. I'm starting to crave this place... More

The pizza here is good but not great. Place is really crowded (generates a good and deserved following) but the tables are tiny and totally inadequate. No elbow room. The bar to the outside front takes up space with no real benefit, except to let cold air in during the winter. Just me, but I would yank it out and... More

I love the pizza at Grimaldi's. Great crust, and terrific assortment of toppings. It can get a little expensive though, with each topping being from $2-4 regardless of size or on a half. Your best bet is to buy a large pizza because of that. The salads are wonderful and very generous. A small is more than enough for two.... More

Great atmosphere and pretty good pizza. It can be crowded, which is a good sign for a restaurant. We had a super friendly server. Overall a very positive experience.

I love the pizza and service here. It's great for families, couples, friends. We would go more often but it's a busy place and you usually have a wait before you're seated.
