Grimaldi’s is a a strong supporter of local communities, caring for all guests as if they were family. In the world of Pizza, Grimaldi’s is an institution. A family business that began with the opening of their first location under the Brooklyn Bridge in the borough’s DUMBO neighborhood in 1990.
Their entire concept has been built around signature, coal-fired brick oven pizza, which has been our family staple & continues for over a 100 years of pizza-making traditions. The tantalizing aroma of pizza and calzones baked to perfection in their signature coal-burning ovens offers a unique flavor and a crisp crust that is simply not possible from gas, convection, or wood-burning ovens.
With over 50 locations in the United States Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has a made a name for itself as one of the best coal fire pizza locations. This establishment has mastered the art of the brick oven and elevated this modern cuisine.
Fresh ingredients, handmade mozzarella, and pizza sauce makes Grimaldis the most award-winning pizzeria in the U.S. Their secret recipe’ dough is hand-tossed and made in house daily, while the open kitchen layout provides an entertaining experience with each visit. A premium bar with an extensive wine list perfectly completes any occasion.
Pizza is their Passion and has made them a “must have” for pizza lovers and celebrities alike, including Frank Sinatra.
