Carol Grimaldi (1938 – April 10, 2014) was an American restaurateur and co-founder of Grimaldi's Pizzeria.[1] She was born in 1938 in Harlem, New York. In 1933, her uncle, Pasquale Lancieri, founded the Patsy’s Pizzeria in Harlem, which was one of the first pizzerias in Harlem.[2] Grimaldi and her husband were forced to change the name from Patsy's to Grimaldi's in the mid-1990s, due to a dispute with another restaurant.[3] Eight years after the opening of the pizzeria, Grimaldi and her husband sold the pizzeria, and retired from the restaurant business.[4][5] While still remaining in different business enterprises throughout the years, including Juliana's Pizzeria, the couple decided to re-open the former pizzeria business in 2011.[6] Juliana's is located near the location of Grimaldi's, and serves modern-style pizzas.[3] Pizzas from Juliana's are cooked on a coal-fired oven.[7]

The couple was interviewed about pizza-eating techniques on NPR in 2014.[8] As of today, the Grimaldi pizzeria business has become global.[9]

Personal life

She died from cancer in 2014. Grimaldi is survived by her husband and business partner, Pasquale Grimaldi.[10]
