Pizzeria

Our fresh ingredients, handmade mozzarella, ‘secret recipe’ dough and pizza sauce make us the most award-winning pizzeria in the United States. Our pizzas and calzones are baked to perfection in our signature coal burning oven, delivering a tantalizing aroma, unique flavor and crisp crust that is just not possible from gas, convection or wood burning ovens.

Grimaldi's Pizzeria is an American pizzeria chain from the New York City area with several restaurants throughout the United States. Its most famous restaurant is under the Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn at 1 Front Street, next door to its original location. It does not sell slices, only whole pies. The pizzas are renowned for being cooked by coal-fired brick oven. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Patsy Grimaldi, the founder of Grimaldi's Pizzeria, learned to make pizza at age ten at Patsy's Pizzeria, his uncle Patsy Lancieri's restaurant in Italian Harlem in 1941. Decades later, Grimaldi decided to go into business for himself and originally planned to own his own restaurant in Manhattan. However, Grimaldi believed coal-fired brick ovens produced the best pizza and knew coal ovens were illegal in Manhattan. As a result, Grimaldi opened Grimaldi's Pizzeria in Brooklyn, New York in 1990. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

In the late 1990s, Patsy Grimaldi retired, selling the Grimaldi's name and franchise (except for the Hoboken locations) to restaurateur Frank Ciolli. In 2011, the building's owner declined to renew Ciolli's lease, so he renovated an abandoned bank next door and moved the restaurant over. The next year, Patsy Grimaldi came out of retirement and opened a new pizzeria called Juliana's Pizza in the original building, resulting in enmity between himself and Ciolli.

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. (Source: www.venetianlasvegas.com)

Grimaldi’s believes that too, going to great lengths to keep the integrity of the water used in the Brooklyn pizzeria by hiring a chemist to analyze and recreate the mineral content and exact composition of the water to ensure the dough is as authentically New York as possible.

A friend of the Ciolli family, Rob Tarzia, and a former employee of Grimaldis Pizzeria, in 2019 opened a Coal Fired Brick Oven Pizzeria in Middletown NJ, named Zoni’s Brooklyn Brick Pizzeria. In 1 year they came in 6th place for Best Pizza in New Jersey State by Jersey Pizza Joints. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

In 1299, the Grimaldis and their allies launched a few galleys to attack the port of Genoa before taking refuge on the Western Riviera. During the following years, the Grimaldis entered into different alliances that would allow them to return to power in Genoa. This time, it was the turn of their rivals, the Spinola family, to be exiled from the city. During this period, both the Guelphs and Ghibellines took and abandoned the castle of Monaco, which was ideally located to launch political and military operations against Genoa. Therefore, the tale of Francis Grimaldi and his faction — who took the castle of Monaco disguised as friars in 1297 — is largely anecdotal. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
