Movie and a pizza, that is exactly what we did Friday night and it was Fabulous.  Brandt and I had not been to the movies in a long time.  Throughout our time together (about 7 years) we have maybe gone to the movies..ugh..twice...??  We are not huge movie-goers by any means, but since we had not done it in a while, it was actually so much fun!  Our pizza experience was possibly better then American Hustle.

Grimaldi's is located in Palm Beach Gardens at Downtown at the Gardens.  It is perfect location, as you can just walk upstairs to the COBB movie theater.  ADVICE: if you are planning on going to dinner before the movie, come about an hour and a half in advance.  Grimaldi's was SLAMMED!!!  One bite of the pizza and it makes any wait you may have worth it.  I guarantee you, you will eat the whole pie.

We started with a Carafe of their house Pinot Grigio.  15 bucks for a Carafe--Yes, Please!

Carafe of Pinot was full before I took a Picture

We met our Friends Bryan and Katherine, so we shared a salad and ordered a few small pies.  One thing I love about Grimaldi's is that they stick to what they know.  On their menu is salads, calzones and pizza, that's it.  A pretty simple menu, no fluff.  We started with the Mediterranean Salad.  Romaine Lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, kalamata olives, feta cheese, red onion, and vinaigrette dressing.  It was tasty, however a few more olives and tomatoes could have made it slightly better.

Now for the Pizzas!  Bryan and Katherine shared a small pepperoni and ricotta pizza, while Brandt and I shared a mushroom and ricotta pizza.  You can really taste the quality in every ingredient that Grimaldi's uses. The cheese is creamy, the sauce is chuncky, the crust if crunchy and does not taste burnt.  So many of these brick oven pizza places have the bottom of their pizzas completely black.  Not here, clean and crisp.

I am a huge Anthonys Coal Fired Pizza fan, but there is something about Grimaldi's that makes me want to finish off the entire pizza every time.  If you like NY style pizza, I guarantee you will enjoy Grimaldi's,
During the summer Grimaldi's offers happy hour specials, so be on the look out for that!  If you love pizza and have not tried Grimaldi's, try it.  I bet you will be finishing off the the entire pie, just like me!
