The place was packed and we had read good reviews online. This reputation was undeserved unfortunately. We had 2 different pizzas and the ingredients just sat on top of the pizza. The thin crust had the taste and texture of an unsalted saltine cracker. Honestly, I think papa john's probably is more tasty. The service was good. Do NOT wait... More

Great thin crust pizza, very busy - can be a long wait. This is more of a "build your own" pie place as the menu is essentially a list of toppings and bases, and you choose what you want. It's very tasty, a lively atmosphere, and the price is right. My only complaint is I'd like to see a few... More

First time in Scottsdale, walking around we stumbled upon Grimaldi's primarily because it had a nice outdoor dining area. The "personal" pizza was much larger than a typical so-called personal pizza and my "small" Caesar salad was easily enough for three people, maybe four. A companion ordered a "small," pizza, which was the size of a medium or large at... More

First visit, best stone fired pizza I have ever had! Have choice of tomatoes, pesto or white sauce. I highly recommend the white sauce, just olive oil and garlic. Thin crust, great taste. Large restaurant, lots of room inside or outside. Highly recommend if in the Old Town area.

We thought a Monday night around 8pm wouldn't require reservations. We were wrong. But 40 minutes and one glass of wine from the bar later we were seated for a very delicious pizza dinner. We had the kale salad too and it was great! Our waitress did a great job and was very nice. Much nicer than the older hostess,... More

Grimaldi's promised a great pizza and delivered. We shared a 16" meatball, green pepper, and fresh basil pie and loved it. There were smaller and larger pizzas available. Crust was crisp but not crunchy, meatballs were authentic and nicely seasoned, and the green pepper was savory and ever so slightly sweet. Soft drink was regularly replenished. Service was attentive but... More

Maybe there was too much hype before we ordered, maybe it was the seven minute drive home with it, but I wasn't impressed. The crust could have been amazing with some garlic butter brushed on. The pizza had cute, little pepperonis, but the cheese was dry and not what I have come to expect being a Wisconsinite.

I's heard good things about Grimaldi's, so I stopped in for lunch. Right in Old Town Scottsdale, which is a fun place to visit. Ran into that same tiresome reception, for a woman traveling solo. Deep sigh, " Do you want to sit at the bar?". "No". So hard for restaurants to give up a table for one person... Thing... More

Found Grimaldi's by chance while shopping in Scottsdale. We are so happy we did. The service was prompt and friendly. The pizza was amazing. We are a family of five and usually have differing opinions on pizza, however each one of us loves this pizza. For me it was the absolute best pizza I have ever eaten. The crust is... More

Visited old downtown Scottsdale and finished up with a great pizza, breadsticks and a few glasses of Chianti! Eat in the courtyard if you can... nice ambience. Great service! Very glad we stopped and will do so again next time we are visiting the Phoenix area.
