In the world of pizza, Grimaldi’s is an institution. Grimaldi’s history of coal-fired brick oven pizza cooking can be traced to the first pizzeria in America back in 1905. Coal-fired brick oven cooking gives pizza a unique smoky flavor and a crisp crust that is just not possible with gas, convection, or wood oven. Knowing coal-fired brick oven cooking is a dying art, we, at Grimaldi’s, want to ensure that future generations will be able to experience this distinctive and truly authentic pizza.
“One of the few foods that lives up to the hype and is worth the annoying wait in line. Bring a snack and some water, you could wait as long as an hour, but the pizza is a sweet reward. It’s simply perfect pizza.”
“It’s a landmark, and worth checking out. Simple, reasonably priced pizza with excellent crust. Cheap beer, excellent pizza, and Brooklyn Ice Cream parlor right across the street. . a fun night worth crossing the bridge for.”
“I originally went to Grimaldi’s as a tourist back in 2005…and it stole my heart…this is seriously the best pizza I’ve ever had, period. I no longer live in NYC, but when i come visit, I always have to make sure I make time to come here at least once."
