Popular pizza restaurant

Seemed to be almost always a queue for a table but we were quite lucky and got seated right away. Simple straight forward menu of pizza served on plastic plates and plastic knives and forks. Can understand why the place is so popular!

No fancy stuff here, Grimaldi's keep it simple by offering the best Pizza in NY. Whilst nestled away in Brooklyn you could easily walk past as it is very unassuming but once you walk in you know that people 'in the know' come to this place for Pizza

My friends said Grimaldi's was a MUST SEE in NYC, so we went. Waited about 45 min to get in to get a table. Loved people watching while we waited. Don't go here if you are in a hurry. A good thing is worth waiting for. They also don't take credit cards so bring cash or use ATM that they... More

I had been to Grimaldi's in their original location next doors several years ago. I have been raving about it since, proclaiming it to be the best pizza I've ever eaten. This May, my husband and I visited the location in Vegas which was also amazing. We traveled to NYC for our anniversary this week, with the distinct purpose of... More

Visited at the lunch time. We wait in line for approximately 20 minutes. But the pizza was worth of it. We took small with pepperoni. It was too big for two. Delicious!!! I will recommend the place for everyone

I will be as concise as possible, which is hard: amidst the expensive lunch or dinner places all over NYC this one offers quality for a normal price! The pizza dough is the Italian way: thin and crisp and yiaaamy and the toppings are full in flavor and top quality 😊 be sure to add a sauce bcs it is... More

Looks good, smells ok, tastes....very bland. Sausage and onion is: Bland! Don't bother--even on a warm night--walking the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan to get here. Go to Julianna's next door where there is beer (no liquor license at Grimaldi's) and beautiful pizza. I'm from Connecticut where New Haven tops anyone's pizza anywhere especially Sally's and Pepe's pie. I have lived... More

A native Ny'er myself, I came back to visit the city after 28 years to catch some theatre and city vibes. Grimaldi's was recommended to me from another family member who visited a few months ago. Since so many fabulous reviews showed up on TA, I figured this was a do-not-miss. So, after spending the morning in downtown, we figured... More
