Did not even make it in the door!! Staff are incredibly rude!! Waited at the door for 10 min while staring at 8 empty tables. No one came over to even acknowledge us. Then the owner came and ordered us behind the ropes like we were waiting in line for a club!! DEFINITELY do NOT go there!!!!!!

Incredibly loud once you make it in (took us well over an hour in line), so not a great place for conversation. That's okay -- the food is worth it!

So, we finally made the journey into Brooklyn for Grimaldi's. And it was just okay. Being Italian and raised on great Italian pizzas, I wouldn't categorize this as anything more than fair. We avoided the queue outside by arriving around 5:00. Then we proceeded to sit at our table for a good 10 minutes before the waiter acknowledged us and took our order. Once the order was taken the wait wasn't bad to actually get our pizza. We ordered the regular pizza but probably should have added a topping so it had flavor. I agree with another reviewer, I'm glad I went, once. We won't return though.

Grimaldi's Pizza is literally the greatest pizza I've ever had. One of my friends and I walked the Brooklyn Bridge specifically to eat there and it was totally worth the walk and the wait in line. The atmosphere of the entire restaurant is exciting.

The ONLY thing Grimaldi's have going for them is their location (i.e., close proximity to Brooklyn Bridge), but everything else is either subpar or very bad. Service: If you include the hour-long queue outside the restaurant, Grimaldi's can only merit a 2.5 rating (out of a total of 5), at best. The pizzas are unappetizing! The dough is hard/rubbery, the toppings are sparse and we checked out the pizzas on the tables around us and all were a lil burnt - including ours!!

After waiting one hour we were famished and when we did order and get our pizza, we enjoyed it BUT, we had pepperoni on ours so it was bound to be good. That said the amateur pizza makers burnt the cheese, which was sort of commercial, and burnt the fresh basil leaves, which should have been put on after baking.

My husband and I were excited to try this place after seeing all of the great reviews online and in fromers, however we were a bit disappointed. After waiting over half an hour (which apparently isn't all that long for this place), we were sat in cramped quarters, and other than taking our order, bringing our pizza and bringing out bill we didn't see the waiter (not great service at all). I could put up with all of this is the pizza was good, but it wasn't. It was ok...but not as good as everyone seems to say it is. I think you pay for the name, rather than the quality. On top of all of this it doesn't matter where you are in line, it all depends on whether the owner wants to let in groups of 4 or 5 or 2...AND...one large pizza cost $30! That is rediculous! In the future I would ask a new yorker their opinion on the best pizza in town...I think this is a tourist trap!
