Pizza in Dumbo?
Is there still a great pizza place by Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn? If so name, address and comments please? Thanks very much.
You are probably thinking of Grimaldi's, which, in my opinion, is extremely overrated. I've been there a number of times over the years, most recently about four weeks ago. Although the sauce is delicious, the crust suffered from benign neglect: charred to the point of being burned in some areas and spongy in others.

You can search for reviews by neighborhood by scrolling down the home page and clicking on the neighborhood listed on the left-hand side of the page.
If you do a search on this Outer Boroughs board, you will find lots of posts about Grimaldi's. There was a recent string of posts, although I don't remember the exact title.
Perfect sentiments. I grew up on Fascati's and still love it 30 years later, though I think it has become more inconsistent since 1 of the owners died several years back and other original family members who amde the pizza have left.
Grimaldi's alos varies wildly and I just don't have the patience for the wait or athe attitudes of the staff to deal with it.
