If you are choosy and critical on your pizza to be Italian authentic, this place does it right. Consistency is the norm here on how the thin true hand-tossed pizza comes to your table. High-temp brick oven bakes these just like they should be and the toppings are even and not over-quantity which makes a pizza soggy and a fail.... More

My family and I are a big fan of Grimaldi's - unfortunately this trip was not a good one. We ordered a large pepperoni pizza and unfortunately there was beard hair in it. The waitress asked if we wanted a whole other pizza? Really??? We noticed the guy making the pizza had a beard but we were told his was... More

This was my first time eating at Grimaldi's and have heard fantastic reviews from friends but I have to say I was not blown away. Don't get me wrong, the pizza was delicious but it is not better than most other pizza places. I will agree with other reviewers that the salad was really good. A small between the two... More

Their salads are all delicious! I recommend a small if just one person. It's enormous! Their pizza is always amazing but very expensive to add toppings.

FREE large pizza for your birthday!? Who does that? GRIMALDI'S that's who! Easy sign up on website! Excellent pizza and I like pizza but the thing I like about Grimaldi's is the crust! Nice staff!

My wife, son and I ate here for dinner while visiting the area. We were seated promptly and the waiter explained the menu. We ordered a small Caesar salad and large cheese pizza. The salad was good and large enough for the 3 of us. The pizza came pretty quickly. I thought it had a good taste, but my some... More

I liked the pizza, however I like to have some pasta with my pizza and they only sell pizza and salad. I liked it, but is too expensive for pizza.

We have been to Grimaldi's in San Antonio several times so I wanted to check this one out. Our waiter took some time to come over and greet us. So I asked the host to send someone over. Manager came to apologize but the waiter was stand offish when he came by. He brought us a salad we didn't order... More
