We are from California and had to try "the best pizza" in Brooklyn. The experience was 5 stars! Be sure to bring cash! No credit cards or ATM accepted.

The pizza is very good, but the attitude is so bad that I'd rather support establishments that make pizza that does not taste as good but puts at least some effort into customer service. For a list of the top 10 restaurants https://files.nyu.edu/jdy215/public

My husband and I are pizza lovers, so naturally before visiting NYC from Australia, I did a little research about where to get the best pizza. Grimaldi's came up time and time again so I made sure it was on our agenda.
Such the perfect way to top off a walk across the Brooklyn bridge. The area in Brooklyn Heights has a real historic feel and fabulous for your senses, The Gramaldi building is an old bank and has a lot of character inside and out. When we walked in, we were surprised by how fresh and modern it was,
The pizza certainly didn't disappoint, it was EXACTLY what you would hope you pizza would taste like. The best part is that you get presented with a blank canvas to make your own pizza, so you are getting exactly what you want.
The service was fast but I didn't feel rushed. Not overly friendly... they let the pizza do the talking. The restaurant is CASH ONLY. I recommend the visit.

""Let's go to Grimaldi's!"" This statement is expressed to me from my boyfriend no less than 5 times a month. We live about 20 minutes from Grimaldis and there is SOME GOOD DARN PIZZA in our neighborhood and well, within a 5 minute drive or train ride of us and STILL he MUST go to Grimaldis... NEED I SAY MORE? LOL

there seems to be a general feeling of love/hate with this place, which i'm saying is due to the wait. the pizza is good. The sauce is kind of sweet and the crust is thinish and crispy, the way that a good brick oven pie should be and the way that many places fail to make them. if you like dominos, thick crusted pies, or really topping heavy pies, you won't like this pizza. It's meant to be light and thats the way you should order it. Get it plain and you probably won't be disappointed.

We went there in 2010 and thought we'd give this place a try since it appears to be 'famous' and there is ALWAYS a line waiting outside. So we thought it must be good, right? Well, we were a party of 6 and sorry to say, none of us were impressed with the pizza. It was OK but not great. We all scratched our heads afterwards wondering why people would want to wait to get into Grimaldi's when there are so many good pizza joints in NYC. The worst, however, was spotting a big roach running underneath our table. That certainly killed off whatever appetite we had left after the first bite. In case you still want to go find out for yourself how their pizza taste, you should know that they only sell pies, no slices, unless they have changed their policy.
