This place has incredible pizza. The mediterrean salad is outstanding. A bit pricey but very good food. Wish the noise level was a bit quieter however great charcoal oven pizza is superb. Service is a-ok. Last visit we had to wait longer than usual. We go very frequently.

We usually avoid chains, even smallish chains like Grimaldi's. But I was glad we checked them out this trip! Service was absolutely outstanding--among the best we have had at any level of restaurant. (In addition to the normal things that made it good, they didn't get our order quite right, but brought us the "mistake pizza" and then the corrected... More

The pizza here is made over coals. It comes only in a New York style thin and crispy crust. The service was great and staff was friendly. It took awhile for the pizza to arrive but was somewhat a typical wait for such an establishment. Would recommend if you like coal crisped pizza. Seats are uncomfortable but dessert is fantastic!

Absolutely the best pizza in Corpus. They always have a crisp crust (coal fired oven) not as flavorful as a wood fired but great. Beer and Wine good selections. Calbrese salad and mozzarella good. They re-stoke the oven between 4-5 pm daily so avoid those times.

We made the mistake of stopping to eat during the hour they restart the fire. I believe that happens from 3-5 pm daily. We enjoyed the spinach salad while we waited. I had a drink with Moscato which was nice. Each Grimaldis has 2 local beers for those of you loving local brews. The pizza was good. We had the... More

Loved everything about this place. Calzones were so, so delish. Lots of cheese and loads of flavor. Caesar salad was crisp and oh so yummy. Pizza was just cooked to perfection. Can't even begin to describe.... get there! Also, staff were among the friendliest the entire weekend. They know how to cater to their patrons!!!

This is my favorite pizza ever. I love the wood oven fired smoky flavor and the charred bits on the crust from cooking in the oven. This is a New York pizza and even made with ingredients imported to duplicate the original taste of the Brooklyn pizzeria. They make this pizza fresh and you can watch as they artfully toss... More
