Reviewing salad which was beyond excellent..............

Wanted something fresh and light after a doctor visit in Corpus and remembered having a caprese salad at Grimaldi's which was good and knew they also sold wine by the glass. I decided on a spinach salad with gorgonzola, bacon, red onion and cherry tomatoes with balsamic dressing. This salad was... read more

I walked in Friday at around 3pm with my two children. The place had about 20 people dining in, so it was not packed. We were greeted right away and seated fairly quickly. It took a while for a waitress to come over. When she did, she had an attitude problem, but I brushed it off. We looked at the... More

The pizza was really good but too expensive. The ingredients were fresh, maybe the crust was too thin and cooked, but in general not bad.

We celebrated my son's birthday here with just family. We love the Mediterranean salad and the pizza. It is consistently excellent. Service was great. Decent selection of beer and wine. Overall excellent experience.

The wait staff at this place have no pep in the step. It took me forty five minutes to get me pizza. When it finally came I was so disappointed. It was flat not new York style at all.

Best place to go w family & be treated like family. The managers are engaged w guests & remember our family ever time. We love the fresh food & the people. It always feels like we our visiting friends. The one place that feels like 'our' place...all because of the awesome staff & managers.

I've eaten a lot of pizza - Grimaldi's pizza is outstanding! The brick oven crust was thin and crispy, just the way I like it. If I lived in Corpus Christi, I would surely be a frequent customer.

I've been here many many many times now and I have not once been disappointed in anything from the service or the food. The service is always great and the pizza is just the way I want it: thin, crispy and delicious. I read some of the other reviews regarding soggy pizza and I think this would happen if you... More

The atmosphere is great, the pizza is wonderful and the service was excellent. We went for lunch and i would go again. The staff is nice, the pizza is a great thin crispy crust. Fresh and tasty. Will go again when we are back. A definite must try.

Went to the location right as they opened and had a great visit, the menu may be small but the size of their meals are huge.... A personal calzon for sure can feed two people. Strongly recommend heading over and checking out this location for good food and service.... Not to shabby...
