I was very disappointed. My friends and I felt like the pizza had absolutely no favor. The only favor you got was from the brick oven. Sauce nonthing. Will never vist again.

We had heard good reviews about this place and the first time we attempted to visit, there was a line down the street. We gave up that time and returned on a Monday night when quieter. I'm pretty fussy when it comes to pizza. I ran a pizza store for years and my entire family loves it so my standards... More

Located in the area of the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Moderate to long lines are the norm. The day that we went the lines were moderate about a 20 minute wait for a table. However, we then waited almost an hour for our pizza.!! The pizza is just OK and the seating is very cramped and not too comfortable. But this... More

The place is very old school Italian and the line is usually around the block. I have never actually dined inside the place because the wait is just too long. Had the take out and the food is very good.

We had lunch at Grimaldi's this past weekend & the pizza was incredible! There was a line to get in, but it was well worth the wait. The architecture of the building is very cool - but it needs serious updating. The service was fine. Oh - they do not accept credit cards, so bring cash!

I have been here countless times. Everything is awesome. Even though I'm gluten free I never miss eating a few slices. Love it. Love it. Love it

Grimaldi's seriously the best.Thin crust,fresh.This place makes it impossible for have pizza anywhere else except next door Juliana's which I've been trying to come up a conclusion which one is the best.It's hard to pick,but they're both very different and very good.I don't like the wait but it's worth it.If you're visiting you must come here.

We had heard a lot about this restaurant and its renowned pizza and we were really looking forward to a delicious meal. Unfortunately, our pizza came out with a half-cooked base and was average at best. Service was efficient though.

If you want traditional, thin crust pizza, served without any fuss - this is the place for you. Don't expect any frills of a fancy dining experience, the pizza is served on its own, in a small, basic but very busy restaurant. Definitely one of the highlights of our visit to Brooklyn.

After reading all the hype about the 'best pizza in NYC' and the 2 hour long queues, we arrived with high expectations. We were not disappointed. 10 minute wait, awesome $30 large pizza with 2 toppings and the best canoli ever eaten.
