|The Famous Coal Oven|
|The Main Event|
Once the pizza came out I couldn’t wait to dig in.
The pizza was really amazing. To me the stand out element was the crust. I also really liked the sauce and cheese, but all I could remember after finishing was how tasty the crust was. Julianna’s can definitely hold it’s own against any of the top pizzerias in the city!

I returned with Kim and Lucas a month or two later and Patsy Grimaldi himself greeted and seated us. Just to be sure I asked the waiter if it was really the famous pizza legend. Patsy was very friendly and went around the restaurant chatting with many of the customers.
When our food came out he offered us some soup for Lucas. We graciously accepted. Patsy went on to tell us how he cooked it for hours to make it just right.
When the soup came out, Kim and I were already working on our pizza and calzone. Patsy asked us if we would like for him to feed Lucas. We let Patsy try to feed Lucas but he wasn’t having it. It was relatively late and he wanted Mommy or Daddy not a pizza legend to feed him the soup.
The pizza was once again fantastic and the calzone was also really great. It was a very nice size and generously filled with cheese.
Before heading home Patsy gave us some mozzarella cheese for Lucas. He enjoyed it as did Kim and I. We then did a little photo-op with Patsy by the famous coal oven. Lucas was in a much better mood and didn’t complain when Patsy held him for the picture.
If you plan to visit Brooklyn’s DUMBO for pizza I’d highly recommend a visit to Juliana’s.
It’s much better than the previous tenant that used to occupy this space!
Juliana’s is located at 19 Old Fulton Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201, ph (718) 596-6700
