This had a lovely atmosphere, excellent service, decent food. The calamari fritte came with a tomato/olive mix that was very garlicky but good. My entree was a chicken/spinach combo which I enjoye. I didn't particularly care for the marinara sauce on the accompanying pasta. Overall, though I recommend it if you are staying in the area and looking for good... More

Grimaldi's has always been my favorite ristorante.especially when Rita ' grandparents had the trattoria on Erie Blvd...Rita has continued the tradition with the same fabulous home cooking and that special Italian flavor...A very comfortable, friendly and consistent place to make it your home away from home...***** warmest regards. ..Carmen Logan

Just went here with a friend based on the four stars on both TripAdvisor and Yelp. Usually I'm wary of places near hotels, but I was confident enough in the reviews. I am really not a picky eater, but I was thoroughly disappointed. It's hard to mess up Italian in my book, but my friend and I got the Veal... More

We decided to visit Grimaldi's on a chilly, wintery night. We were able to make reservations which is always nice. Our hostess Roberta was very pleasant and had a very welcoming smile. We were seated immediately at a comfortable booth and greeted by our server Matthew. He was absolutely charming and friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The basket of bread and... More

I went to here with four other people at about 6:30 on a Sunday evening. Let me say here and now I am not the kind of person who sends food back, or even complains to the waitress when something is wrong. I ordered the chicken rigatoni and with the rest of my parties order. And after about 45 minutes... More

I have to say that this place is the best place to go if your in the Carrier Circle Hotel area. Lots of people think Joeys is the best but I feel this place puts Joeys in there PLACE. Also the service here makes you feel like your at home. I recommend that everyone trys this place over Joeys.

This place has really delicious traditional-style Italian food. Friendly service and a very relaxing atmosphere. Has a beautiful bar with an impressive wine list, we grabbed a drink and then were sat in the dining room. We had a smart and friendly waiter and our dinners were great. We were staying in a near by hotel and are so glad... More

We visited this restaurant on New Year's Eve. Due to the uncertainty of weather and road conditions we arrived about 30 minutes early for our reservation. We let the hostess know we had arrived and then went to the bar to wait. At the bar the Mrs had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and I had a beer. The bartender... More

We were staying close by and decided to give this place a try because of the great reviews. We all ordered pasta dishes and we were so pleased. The food was excellent and serving sizes were perfect. We all left full and happy. The bread they serve at the beginning of your meal is so fresh and yummy. The butter... More
