I've been looking for authentic NY Pizza and have come up short here in SA. Has anyone been to Grimaldi's. I heard it's decent.

There's a no so good review of the restaurant on Yelp.com You can find other restaurants and places on there when you're looking for reviews. It has helped me tons and I offer my insight on there as well.

FYI, MySA.com says it just opened with dinner hours in early May and won't be open for lunch until June.

Have you been to Dough? They are in the league with NY's best.

Grimaldi's (the chain now in SA) is run by family members of the original (not part of the chain) in Brooklyn. The original is definitely in NYC's top 3. I'm looking forward to giving them a try when they start serving lunch. The original was a regular haunt when I lived in the city.

Is Lucas' Pizza still around. Used to be one in Ingram park mall, right between Alladins Castle and Olgas' kitchen. LUCAS' PIZZA ROCKS! (or rocked)
That stuff still there?

From past experience any place that uses a Brick oven purposely chars the crust. They had a place where I used to live called Anthony's coal fire pizza that was the same thing. If I went to a pizza place and they burnt my pizza I would return it..lol

I went to Grimaldi's and the Pizza was very good. I would compare the Pizza with Dough. However, the whole experience was ruined by a horrible waiter.

Waiter comes to our table takes our food order, but does not ask what we want to drink.
While explaining the pizzas, he is distracted twice and leaves to talk to another waiter.
Three tables that arrived afte us receive their salads and pizzas before we receive our salad.
He constantly blamed the kitchen for all the problems and says that no one back there speaks english. (yet none of the other waiters seem to be having this problem).
We have to ask for our salad, and he claims it was mixed up with another table.
We receive two salads (we only ordered one)
My glass of water is half full and he takes it to refill it. He never comes back with it.
I ask him for my water and he apologises. I then see him cleaning up another table. After waiting 5 minutes, I start drinking my wifes water. When he notices, then he brings my water.
He apologizes and asks if we would like some bread that he would give us complimentary. We accept. He never brings it.
And CONSTANTLY, he complains that all the problems are caused by the kitchen.

I will go back, but if I am assigned to that waiter, I will walk out.
I still prefer Florio's and Big Lou's as for NY style pizza.

We dined at Grimaldi's the other night and had an excellent Pizza and outstanding service.

They have a 1/2 price wine night on Tuesday's.

You order your basic size and type of Pizza and then select the toppings for another $2-$4 ea..
A loaded large Pizza can run over $30.

Is the pizza coal style, as in burnt crust or is it normal pizza?

we've been to Grimaldi's twice and love it! If you go to the company's website and sign up for their e-mail offers they should send you a discount coupon. The pizza is made in a coal-fired oven so it has a charred crust (although most texans don't like it...that's how it's done in NY). The salads are great as well, the small can feed 3 people easily.

The pizza can be a little pricey if you want a lot of toppings but I don't mind paying since it's a ginormous size and tasty!
