This award-winning pizza is hand tossed and served Neapolitan style in this upscale casual Brooklyn spot, a New York favorite.
Grimaldi's Pizzeria serves award-winning, hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizzas, calzones, house made salads and desserts. With Frank Sinatra crooning in the background, Grimaldi's offers over 100 years of pizza-making traditions and the tantalizing aroma of pizza and calzones baked to perfection in the signature coal burning oven. Grimaldi's is an institution it has garnered more awards than any other pizzeria in the country with more celebrity sightings than most 5-star restaurants. Using only the freshest ingredients, "secret recipe" pizza sauce, homemade mozzarella cheese and dough, Grimaldi's serves traditional pizza (as it began in Naples, Italy) in an upscale yet casual, family-oriented pizzeria.
Designed and built by hand, the coal-fired oven at Grimaldi's Pizzeria delivers a unique flavor and consistency that is just not possible from wood or gas ovens. Weighing in at 25 tons and heated by 100 pounds of coal per day (cleanest burning fuel available and environmentally tested), the oven heats up to 1200 degrees. The intense heat of the oven evenly bakes the pies to create Grimaldi's famous crispy and smoky crust that Zagat has voted best pizza year after year.
