We love thin crust pizza. If you do too, don't miss out. Coal fired oven adds a flavor you can't get anywhere else. All the staff are very friendly.

Food was good. Atmosphere was nice. The challenge I had was the Groupon wasn't honored because it was a holiday and it did not indicate this in the fine print.

I've only had the pizza and some of the salads. The flavor of the pizza was mediocre, the sauce seems undercooked. The cheese had very little flavor. The drinking water was undrinkable, as if they got it out of a bad hose. I would not recommend it and I've given it several tries. Sorry. Overall service was average and the waitress was kind and attentive.

Pizza was way too overdone and dry. Mozzarella was so thin it was like dried out leather. Waiter was a young scatterbrain that we had to keep reminding about everything. He didn't take the groupon off either so had to redo the bill.

Staff seemed very disorganized, there was empty tables but they said they were reserved for people 1 hour from now. After saying we're leaving they finally gave us a table. After we sat they told us they ran out of bread for the table and gave us 2 packages of Oysterettes crackers (no we did not have soup) Food was ok but not worth the aggravation

We shared a pie and a salad. The pie was excellent, even though I normally do not like thin crust. Service was fine.

Pizza is excellent; salads are skimpy and sometimes the service is slow.

From Our Editors

Patsy Grimaldi wasn’t like other boys his age. While his friends busied themselves playing baseball and balancing checkbooks, Patsy studied pizza-making under the tutelage of his uncle Patsy Lancieri. By the time Grimaldi was old enough to open a pizzeria of his own, he had perfected a recipe for fragrant tomato sauce and mastered the art of baking ultra-crispy crusts. As word of his pizza-making talents spread across New York, Patsy’s pizzeria attracted long lines and a variety of celebrity devotees including Bob Costas and Frank Sinatra. Allegedly, Sinatra was so impressed by Patsy’s brick-oven pies that he regularly called in orders from his place in Vegas.

Today, Grimaldi’s Pizzerias have sprouted up across the country and earned accolades from Time magazine and Lonely Planet. Chefs continue to shower thin crusts in Pasty’s secret sauce along with handmade mozzarella and fresh toppings. They bake the pizzas in coal-fired brick ovens, faithfully following the tradition started by uncle Lancieri more than 80 years ago. Diners enjoy pies and brews in casual dining rooms where red-checkered tablecloths cover tables and NYC-inspired artwork decorates walls.
