We stopped in for a snack after the movies at Cobb. I had the bruschetta, traditional and mushrooms with red pepper. It was delicious. The server was friendly and service wasn't bad. If we are in the area we will go back to try their pizza and of course we'll be having the bruschetta again.

My boyfriend and I stopped at Grimaldi's for dinner while driving through Clearwater. The hostesses were very friendly and promptly sat us. The bruschetta was awful, and our pizza was very average. I thought it was interesting that they baked the basil on our margarita pizza versus putting it on the pizza after it comes out of the oven. Burnt... More

Closest to Italy that we have found in the area- the crust was just how we like it- the small was more than enough for the two of us... antipasto was ok- we have had better. The wine list was good. Cheesecakes looked very good - we did not have dessert.

We have visited here many times and always got Margarita Pizza w/ pepperoni. Has been good, but this visit we wanted something different with a few more toppings. Ordered a 4 topping pizza, extra crispy and 2 craft draft beers. One beer came out and said they were out of the beer now (Jai alai). The pizza was pretty skimpy... More

I have to admit being from Chicago I am a pizza snob. Having said that these pizzas are fantastic for thin crust cooked to perfection. And you absolutely must have a cannoli while your there some of the best I've ever eaten, can't wait for next vacation there to go back.

Here from Chicago for weekend - went to a movie - stopped for pizza as in the mall - good service - limited beer selection - ok table and setting - very thin pizza without much topping - not bad just not my style - not as tasty as most Chicago thin crust pizza due to the sparse toppings

My husband and I enjoyed another great dinner at Grimaldi's - amazing pepperoni and sausage pizza, Pepsi products, great service, fun atmosphere ... I've written it all before. What's new is the seasonal cheesecake we shared for dessert. The butterscotch toffee cheesecake was a good size slice that we shared. We don't often indulge in desserts, but the server recommended...

First off I do not expect much from a franchise restaurant, especially at a Mall. This place has a very good thin crust Pizza. I ordered a Margherita with pepperoni, extra crispy. It was very good and cooked crispy. This was second trip. They have a good selection of local craft draft beer and Wines. Service was good. I wish... More

We enjoyed a pepperoni pizza and glasses of wine for dinner this week. Also tried the appetizer Bruschetta Trio with Marinated Artichoke, Olive Medley and Marinated Mushrooms & red pepper. This was a delicious starter while the pizza was being prepared! We were surprised by the white cloth napkins and red checkered tablecloth. The service and food were wonderful and... More
