Got to sit at bar while waiting for a table. Bartender did an excellent job helping us select a drink, even gave samples. Large salad served 4 plus. We had a large pizza and it was wonderful with the ricotta cheese. Would visit here again when in town.

I've eaten at several Grimaldis and was surprised to find one in Corpus! Service was great. Best pizzas as always. A little disappointed in the smaller beer selection, but you dont go there for the beer!

Great pizza, usually crowded, a little high in price. A pizza costs around $20 depending on toppings.

A bit pricey, but some really good pizza. Perfect for special occasion with that special someone. We usually don't go crazy with the toppings, just regular old pepperoni. Calzones are also excellent.

The salad was great. The pizza started out pretty good in terms of crispness but got chew & difficult to bite into by the time it was cool enough to eat without risking burning your tongue. They were also scant on the pizza sauce so it was reminiscent of chewy bread with a scavenger hunt for cheese & sauce. Overall,... More

Pizza was very good. Menu is pretty basic....pizza and salad. No kids meals, no bread sticks and no pasta. The toppings cost for each item you add on your base pizza, so the price adds up quickly! $5.00/chicken and only got a few pieces on each slice. I really enjoyed the pizza but we paid $38 for a large pizza... More

We stopped at Grimaldi's to have a drink on a hot afternoon. They have Peroni beer on tap. While there we saw people eating their pizza and it looked great. The Hostess told us it was made in a coal fired brick oven and was the best pizza she ever had. This was echoed by the bartender. We decided to... More

There pizzas are the best! I love when the weather is nice and we can sit outside at the bar. Might seem a little pricey for pizza, but it is worth it. I really enjoy their white pizza with chicken, basil, sundries tomatoes and ricotta cheese. Mmmm good! The wait usually isn't too bad even on the weekends - 20... More

I have been to Italy many times, and always lament on how terrible American pizza is. Well Grimaldi's came close to proving me wrong. The Pizza was amazing. Simply amazing. Brick over, and thin thin crust just like in Italy, And the appertivo was scrumptious. Thank you for giving me hope.
