Grimaldi's has an iconic reputation for producing some of New York's best coal fired brick oven pizza's. The Grimaldi story began in brooklyn at the base of the bridge, where it has retained its popularity over the years. As the business grew, Grimaldi's expanded its operations to Queens and Long Island. The Pizza's in all of their locations are consistently excellent with thin crust, fine homemade parmesan cheese and homemade tomato sauce. Having dined in both Douglaston and Garden City stores, it is easy to quickly find yourself eating 3-4 slices and thinking about more.

The Garden City store is large, comfortable and busy at all times, with a highly competent staff and management. Always up for a really good pizza, we decided to have dinner at Grimaldi's. The wait staff, gm and asst gm Lou Pisano,greeted us and made us feel at home as we entered the store. We were seated in the main dining room and quickly ordered a caesar salad, and a large pizza. The caesar was generous, and shared by the two of us. We then were served the specialty of the house...a large round grimaldi pizza, which arrived steaming hot. The thing we most enjoy about any restaurant is consistency in food, service and ambiance and Grimaldi's, scored an A on all accounts. Our pizza was simply terrific and thoroughly enjoyable. Our waitress and the assistant manager made sure that our dining experience was excellent. Our table had the silverware replaced when needed, and the table kept clean during the meal. We were totally impressed with the upbeat attitude, and welcoming atmosphere of the restaurant.

We finished our meal with a totally delicious dish of chocolate and vanilla ice cream and some iced coffee. Our meal was delicious, inexpensive and relaxing. Highly recommended for low budget dining and enjoyment.
