Grimaldi’s Grimaldi’s is known by many as the best pizza in NY. It’s another one of those places that I’ve been planning to go to forever but haven’t been motivated enough. First, it’s outside of Manhattan. Second, the long line is almost more famous than their pizza. And, what if the pizza wasn’t really that good? So many “best” places have disappointed me and I have little faith in popular opinion.

I am happy to say that Grimaldi’s was worth it. The pizza is fantastic! We ordered two large pies for four people and had no problem finishing it. The crust, sauce, and cheese are all the flavors and textures they should be, in the right proportions from each other. For toppings, we ordered one with mushrooms and garlic, the other with roasted peppers, onions, and pepperoni. The garlic is extraordinary and I highly recommend it with any other toppings you may like. My only complaint is that the amazing pizza tastes substantially less amazing once it cools and it cools very quickly due to the low amounts of oil and how thin it is. I wouldn’t want them to change a thing about the pizza though. You just have to eat quickly and maybe order one pie at a time.

When the pizza is piping hot, Grimaldi’s is possibly the best in NY. It’s hard to say for sure though since my other favorite, Numero 28, has a very different but equally good pizza.
