Quick lunch with my boss on a business trip, his recommendation. The pizza was DELICIOUS! Tasted so fresh, service was impeccable. It's tiny so be prepared to sit close to other people and bring cash - I dont think they accept plastic.

This place used to be the best pizza in NYC but the last few years its changed. With new ownership it's become a place you wait a long line for bad pizza. Rude staff and no liquor license, I've seen servers yell at customers for not speaking English well and for not tipping "appropriately". This place has become a joke... More

This restaurant was a recommendation by some locals, and for good reason. We were seated right away and we served immediately. The pizza was AMAZING! Coal fired and it only took a few minutes. It was delicious. I recommend the white pizza for something a little different. The cannoli was the best I've ever had. Simply delicious. It is obvious... More

Went here on our short visit to NYC with my wife. We walked over the Brooklyn Bridge and went to Grimaldi's Pizza. We arrived 10 minutes after opening and it was already full of people. Got a seat and ordered our small pepperoni pizza. You can watch the pizza being made from the staff and placed in the coal oven.... More

Arguably the best coal oven fired pizza in New York, and therefore the rest of Planet Earth!!! Go off hours or off weekends to avoid long lines.

The pizza is really thin and delicious so don't be fooled into thinking they are too large to eat. Go for the biggest one if there are 2 people. I went here 3 years ago for the first time and had to queue for ages (on A Sunday lunchtime) but this time I didn't have to wait at all (on... More

..This place is popular and be prepared to wait to be seated, even if that means you have to start d outside. I'd read some great reviews of the restaurant and was massively recommended by multiple sources so it was a must do o my visit to NYC. It's the shame others in my party became impatient and left the... More

Came with my sister last sunday around lunch time and was happy to be seated straight away without a wait, which i understand from other reviews to be a bit of a rarity. The restaurant was busy though, and we sat upstairs by the window which was a nice spot. We waited a long time for our pizza to arrive,... More

This is or was a famous Brooklyn pizzeria. We queued about 30 minutes to get in. At the same time, intriguingly, there was a long queue in the opposite direction to the pizzeria next door, Juliana, and the queue seemed younger, more local, ours more tourists? We then waited another 30 or so minutes to be served, and also learned... More

I have been coming to New York for many years and often meet up with friends in Brooklyn. The renovation at the Brooklyn Bridge Park is awesome. When it came for something to eat, I suggested Grimaldi's based on great past experiences. Well, they are definitely in the past. The place how has a very limited pizza menu, plastic utensils,...
