After seeing that some reviews aren't great, I had to put in a good word for Grimaldis. It is Fantastic! It's Amazing! Its not an incredible dining experience but it doesn't have any pretensions about that and it's a fun place to eat. What Grimaldi's does offer is no question the BEST pizza in NY.

Went to the Original Grimaldi's even though the Hoboken one is less than a mile from my apartment to get what I had been told was some of the best pizza in NYC from the original. It was good, but not sure if it was worth the trip. I had recently been to Di Fara Pizza, which I thought was much better. The pizza at Grimald's was good, but not great, service was a bit slow. If you don't order immediately upon sitting down, it might be a bit, and even though it was pretty quiet by the time we were finished, we had to ask three different people for our bill before we got it. Eating at Grimaldi's felt like eating at a Pizza factory while Di Fara felt like eating at a Pizza shop. I did enjoy the bosterous atmosphere, but I don't go to restaurants for atmosphere.

oh yeah! awesome. what a scene. the dude that seems to own the place is such a sweet, older Italian guy. Like so many of my uncles. The pizza was no joke the top you'd ever find in the City (you dont get better than NYC pizza. If you think otherwise, go out for cheap Chinese). Is it the best pizza in the City? Yes. Are there others at this level? Sure. But the whole experience made it worth it. :-) Once you're sufficiently bloated, wander over to the pier and take in the view of Manhattan from under the Brooklyn Bridge. Cmon, you cant beat it! P.S. If waiting in a one-hour line is something you just cant handle, don't bother...

The pizza is very good... my favorite in the city. Kind of a hectic environment (cuz it's so crowded), but you don't go to Grimaldi's for a quiet dinner and perfect service, you go for the pizza!!

I've been trying to get to Grimaldi's for years to see firsthand what the hype was all about and last night I seized the opportunity to do so. It's no big deal. In contrast to other reviewers the service we recived was efficient. The pizza was soggy but tasty and the prices were reasonable. There are other similar pizzarias around NYC that offer better pizza, Patsy's on University Place being one of them and Vinnie's Pizzaria in Williamsburgh being another. Both offer a crispy thin crust which I prefer. Otherwise my experience was overall decent but not great and all sizzle sans steak.

Didn't have to wait in line which was a suprise. The dinner was going fine until we were kicked out, even though we had not finished. They dropped the check without asking if we wanted coffee, etc and then forced us to pay and leave. Very rude host, plus you'd practically have to knock someone over to get another drink, including water. Food was fine, but don't understand what all the hype is about.

and Oklahoma isn't famous for pizza like Grimaldi's is. I think they've become complacent and have a take it or leave it attitude. Still, it was great to walk across the bridge holding hands with the man I love.
