Whenever I visit NYC, this is a must stop for me. The pizza is always cooked to perfection and the staff are always friendly. If you order any of their salads, just know that it will feed at leat 2-3 people. They have a great selecion of draft beers as well. Bottom line, you won't disappointed.

We came here after asking the tour boat guide where we could get a good pizza. The location is fantastic, by Times Square and a lot of the shows. The interior of restaurant was unique and well done. Seating and service were quick on a Saturday evening. The pizza's were very good and the prices of the food and wine... More

We stumbled upon John's years ago when looking for a post-show dinner. It was just down the block and one of the few places that appealed to our two sons. I'm so glad we found it! It is now my favorite pizza in the city and a "must" meal whenever we're in NYC. Favorite pie: the pizza bianca. Yum!

Of course we had to try pizza while in NYC, and this place had good reviews. First, I will say that we called our order in advance to go, which was really smart after walking in and seeing the long lines. The pizza just wasn't that great to me because I don't really like thin crust and I prefer more... More

I am actually not a big fan of pizza, but I went along anyway, and this place is phenomenal. Great beer and wine, superb decor, but the pizzas are just insane. Huge, but so full of flavor, really glad we chose here.

It’s a very busy restaurant, at least the day that we’ve been there. The pizza is good, not great. The interesting part is that the place was a church in the past.

This pizzeria, and 'was chosen because of the good position on tripadvisor but I have to admit that' far from being a good pizzeria. we chose a bruschetta (4 pieces of bread with a squirt of pesto), to which we had to add the tomato cut into small pieces and a pizza margherita. bread bruschetta and just not suitable and...

We arrived after 4:00, we were seated right away. We got the Garlic Rolls and a small pizza. Loved both and will go there again.

We had this restaurant recommended to us by a local and it did not disappoint! It doesn't look like much from the outside but it is impressive inside. My whole family thought it was pretty much the best pizza we had ever had!
