“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We ordered a small mediterranean salad and a small pizza with pesto, chicken and mushrooms. Lovely fresh ingredients on the thin-crust wood fired pizza. Despite our best efforts we came home with half a pizza - their definition of small and mine are definitely different! We would happily return.

“Good Pizza; Calzone very ODD”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Okay...I admit it...I am a fussy Italian and picky about my Italian food. While the Pizza's at Grimaldi's are good, they are pretty expensive for the small amount of cheese and ingredients. Sauce is good, dough is crispy/good so they get high marks for this part. Caesar salad dressing is too vinegar-y......NOT really a Caesar.
Last night we decided to try the Calzone...I've eaten Calzone all over the world in some great Italian restaurants.... and this rendition of Calzone is very unusual and not all that great....WAY too much Ricotta cheese, not enough mozarella cheese and the sausage and roasted red peppers and mushrooms were hard to find....tiny little plastic container of sauce....Calzones were big, but...size isn't a good indicator of quality.....THis is NOT what Calzone's are supposed to be like...It should be labeled a RICOTTA EXTRAVAGANZA..not a Calzone...It was mushy and.....well....just odd......With extra ingredients that I couldn't find but paid alot for.....it was spendy....and a left over that I didn't really even want to take home. THAT is unusual for me.

“THE CALAZONES ARE THE BEST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Last week we were in the area again and decided it was time for a Calazone! Only one place to go--GRIMALDIS! So glad that they expand and opened another location.

For our main course, we ordered a large 18 inch pepperoni calazone--they are just the best here. Why would 2 people order an 18 inch calazone? FOR THE LEFT OVERS of course! This reheats great and is great for another lunch at home. We will return often!

“Coal Fired Brick Oven Pizza, NYC Style!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Grimaldi's is as authentic as it gets when looking for NYC pizza. Nice sliced pieces of mozzarella cheese, not the grated orange stuff. Thin crust perfection. The salads are just as good. The menu consists of pizza, salad and calzones, what more do you need? They do have a bar area. This pizza is best served hot out of the oven to your table. This location is located in the Casa Paloma shopping center.
