My wife, son and I ate here for dinner while visiting the area. We were seated promptly and the waiter explained the menu. We ordered a small Caesar salad and large cheese pizza. The salad was good and large enough for the 3 of us. The pizza came pretty quickly. I thought it had a good taste, but my some... More

I liked the pizza, however I like to have some pasta with my pizza and they only sell pizza and salad. I liked it, but is too expensive for pizza.

We have been to Grimaldi's in San Antonio several times so I wanted to check this one out. Our waiter took some time to come over and greet us. So I asked the host to send someone over. Manager came to apologize but the waiter was stand offish when he came by. He brought us a salad we didn't order... More

I spent 1 1/2 years in Chicago and loved their pizza, but the Grimald's pizza is even better than any pizza I have ever had. Great staff, you watch them making the pizzas. I always get their cheese cake desert, it is made their and it is fantastic. We eat there about twice a month.

It's almost impossible to get good pizza in S Texas but Grimaldi's does manage to put together some really good pies. The pizza has a nice thin NY style crust and the marinara base is very tasty.

After my wife's doctors appointment this morning, we rushed over to Grimaldi's before noon to grab a few slices of their delicious pie, and a salad. I am hooked on their pesto pizza, with artichoke hearts and black olives. The salads are huge, and fresh. The great thing I've found is it doesn't matter what city you're in, the quality... More

Got there at 4:45pm. Was told the oven had to be cleaned. No pizza until 5:30. Really?!?! Makes no sense to do this at peak time. Don't think I will come back.😟

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 huge and the cheese and bacon were throughout the... More
