4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I took my family here on our last night in New York. They loved it and are still talking about the pizza a fortnight later. I'm told that here and Juliana's (also in Brooklyn) are probably THE two places to go in NYC for the authentic stone baked pizza experience. For me the setting of Grimaldi's at the foot of... More

Stood on line for a long time with a large number of people waiting to see what all the hype was about. Finally got inside and ordered a pie... Still not sure what all the hype was about besides the location perhaps.

Great pizza here at Grimaldis in an authentic setting. The service is OK, nothing special but it's a pizza place and if you want award winning service you should look elsewhere, if you want award winning pizza you should come here. Get here early to avoid the queues.

This pizzeria is referred on many guidebooks and is rated really highly. I was there right time before lunch time. Pizza was huge and really good. Maybe even too big for one person. When I was leaving from restaurant around 12:30 the line was crazy so go early.

Some of the best pizza you'll find outside of Italy and it happens to be in the best borough, Brooklyn. Be prepared to wait on a long line. Call ahead of possible and order a pie. You won't regret it.

This pizza is the best pizza I have ever had and we have tried alot of different pizza places. You can only order while pizzas no slices are sold here also they only accept cash... More

Grimaldi's claims to be the first and best New York Pizza. So, as pizza lovers, we decided to seek out the truth and see for ourselves. We went here for lunch during the week and the line was not that long. They make you wait in line outside, so don't bother going inside as many people do. Also, it is... More

The place is a bit more glamorous then the picture here. Locals love this place and the pizza is in itself a reward for visit....good atmosphere and service!

Grimaldi's has a reputation and I don't think it's reputation is any more than the restaurant tries to be. They serve good pizza's in a place with a pretty buzzy environment, but it is basically a café, nothing more nothing less. The prices are good and so are the pizza's, so if you are in the area it is probably... More

The last time I visited NYC with my family we wanted to eat here but ran out of time, so I came out to NYC a few months later on a business trip and decided to eat here to see what it is all about. I came here on a Saturday, wasn't really sure when it opened, it was about... More
