If you want a taste of a true brick oven pizza with plenty of flavor to bring back Italy to your mouth, Grimaldi's Pizzeria is the place. We made our first stop on our pizza tour of Brooklyn and was immediately transfixed by the heavenly aroma emanating from the area. I was immediately impressed by the crisp crust and the... More

Upon visiting in Dec 2008 this restaurant was recommended to us by a tour guide on one of the city sightseeing tour buses. We decided to chance it. It was such a unique and bustling little restaurant that I have been twice since once in Nov 2015 and again on my latest visit in Jan of this year. When I... More

We rolled up early Sunday lunchtime, about 11.30 and got a table for 2, when we left an hour or so later the line was down the street with an hour plus wait to be seated. There is no liquor license so it is soft drinks only and at the risk of repeating myself they accept only cash, no credit... More

The pizza was excellent and worth the wait. Although the line was intimidating it really didn't take long to make it.

Got there early seated immediately I would expect on a busy night that there would be a wait. This place takes cash only no credit cards no reservations. Menu as simple as it gets pizza and soda. It's an old place with some heritage. It's it was quick how large is eight pieces and filling. They say they're up getting... More

No Slices, Cash Only! Lucky for them that they are already well known, so people come to see what's all the fuss about. 1st thing that caught my eye is Cash Only! Cmon now this is 2017! You don't accept plastic? I understand that it is better so, no proof of the income, you win. If you don't accept CCs,... More

We enjoyed a wonderful pizza experience in this straight forward pizzeria. They say they are the best in town. I don't know as I did not taste them all, but they are very good. Service is straight forward, good , quick but do not expect a word to much. "Can I have a beer?" quote "no alcohol" Pizza to its... More

Best Monday afternoon lunch ever! I walked over the Brooklyn Bridge and arrived at Grimaldi's around 2:30 in the afternoon. There was a line, like there always is - this affirmed everything I had heard - I knew it was going to be good! We didn't wait long at all until the host peeked his head outside the door looking...
