Even though I’ve lived in Las Vegas a few years, this is the first time I’ve eaten at any one of the Grimaldi’s spots. I’m sad that I haven’t eaten here sooner because the pizza we got was delicious. I don’t really care what type of pizza it is or how “authentic” it may or may not be. The only thing I really care is how it tastes. And, the pie that we had was mighty good.
We started with a mediocre small Mediterranean salad ($7). It was large enough for three or four.
The pizza we tried was a small white with garlic ($16) with two toppings (pepperoni and mushrooms, $2 each). The crust was excellent, with a decent amount of it charred, as can be expected from a brick oven place. Even with all the cheese and pepperoni that was on the pizza, the bottom of the crust held up well and wasn’t soggy, providing a crisp and crackling texture with every bite.
The small pizza is more like a medium and is large enough for two to share. Their “personal pizza” is what others would consider a small.
The most annoying thing about this place is that toppings are the same price no matter what size of pizza you get. Obviously, you’re going to get more pepperoni, for example, if you get a large pizza. But, if you get a personal pizza you get less but have to pay the same price. These pies aren’t cheap, so when you start adding toppings the price can get ridiculous.
I’m not sure I’ll be back to this location, just because finding parking at Boca Park is always a hassle. But I will stop by another Grimaldi’s spot to get my pizza fix.
