Description: Welcome to Juliana's, a New York-style pizzeria. Juliana's heralds the return of Patsy Grimaldi-not only to the NYC restaurant scene, but to the original location under the Brooklyn Bridge where he co-founded Grimaldi's Pizzeria with his late wife, Carol. Unbeknownst to many, Pat & Carol severed their affiliation with Grimaldi's in 1999 when they sold the business (along with the name). Even though they were no longer involved in the restaurant, they never lost their passion for serving truly great pizza. And so, with a desire to re-live a "dream come true", they have partnered with close friend and former guest Matthew Grogan to establish Juliana's, a neighborhood pizzeria, preparing and serving pies the way Patsy has for generations. Named in honor of Pat's mother, Maria 'Juliana' Lancieri, Juliana's occupies 19 Old Fulton Street, in the Fulton Ferry Historic District, in the building that was once home to Grimaldi's.

This Pizza place was formerly Grimaldis. They sole the original and many years later opened Julianas. Named after their Mother.
Everyone thinks Grimaldis is still the original but it is not. Julianas and Grimaldis are next to each other still trying to get customers into their restaurant.
The service was great although there is a wait which varies. I was there early and had a small wait.
The decor has changed dramatically from checker table clothes, they are next door, to more upscale dark tables, floors, different lighting, etc. but the same great Pizza Pie.
The location is great right in front of The Brooklyn Bridge. Ferry to Brooklyn or subway.
Limited menu mostly pizza but they are adding new items all the time.

By far one of the BEST Pizza Restaurants I have ever experienced!! Met Patsy Grimaldi-what a great guy! And the rest of his staff is wonderful too! We had the spinach salad--big enough to share for 2-3 and 2 small pizzas--one white, one red. Too much but so what! Go there! Do not even look at Grimaldi's next door! You will not be disappointed.

We ate here after walking over the Brooklyn Bridge and around DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights. We were seated straight away and the atmosphere was great. The selection of toppings available was fab and the pizza itself did not disappoint! A small was definitely enough for two, would highly recommend!

Met Patsy Grimaldi. Original owner of the Grimaldi’s pizza next door.
I did tried both places within last 6 months and I have to say Juliana’s pizza is better.
Way better. For an ambience. Quality. And waiting time.

Awesome casual atmosphere with FRESH WHOLE MADE pizza! Loved how thin the wood fire crust was and how fresh the ingredients were. Excellent choice for fabulous pizza!
