Legendary lines and pizzas are still dished up daily at this touristy pizza mecca. Thankfully, they live up to the hype: thin-crust pies are dabbed with San Marzano tomato sauce and topped with fresh mozzarella, and delivered bubbling to your table. They also make gooey calzones that could make a pacemaker skip a beat. Be prepared for long lines. Whole pies only.
The restaurant is in a new multilevel location after losing its former lease. Interestingly, a new pizza joint, Juliana’s (www.julianaspizza.com) is scheduled to open next door sometime in 2012. And it will be run by Patsy and Carol Grimaldi, the original owners of Grimaldi’s (they sold the business to Frank Ciolli, who has run it since 1998). Hopefully this means shorter lines all around. In the meantime, let the pizza wars begin!
