My large group met at John's Pizzeria on a weekend evening - there was a line outside of people waiting for tables! The building inside was beautiful - not sure what the building originated as, but it had gorgeous windows and a dome. The inside was hopping with activity, and was really loud - too loud for the infant in... More

This is a very pretty restaurant that used to be a church. The atmosphere is really nice. The pizza is great. We also enjoyed the house salad and the cookies and brownies we had for dessert. Since we were with a large group, they set up the food on a buffet for us. One of the servers was very nice... More

Please try this restaurant. I promise you will returm. Our waiter George was sensational and thanks to Jesse who seated us, I tried his suggestion. Awesome food at reasonable prices. You will not be dissapointed. Get there early as this place is no secret.

My husband and I visited John's Pizzeria during our holiday in New York. We we're quickly seated and served. The dough balls were superb, nothing like the dough balls I've had previously. The pizza was delicious....the only negative was we had ordered a half and half pizza. I had a margarita and my husband the hawaiian, unfortunately some of the... More

Line was long to get a table but we got a drink at the bar while waiting. Actually seated before we finished our drinks. Originally a church so take a stroll around to see the windows and ceiling. Four of us shared a large pizza and an order of garlic knots. Delicious. Cooked in a wood fired oven (our table... More

Sit at the bar, skip the lines at the hostess stand, watch the game, have a house and or beer and relax while the best and bread fresh Italian hero is custom prepared for you: in the heart of the theater district.

Decent Service, but salad was watery and pizza a little soggy. It took a long time for food to come so the waiter nicely removed the cost of our soft drinks.

So many choices for pizza. John's has an incredible atmosphere great location and the staff is outstanding. Had a Greek salad before our pizza which would be worth going back to have again but the pizza... Crust was fair...failed to bubble and a bit limp. Sauce was very bland. Toppings were quality. The search continues for a favorite NY pizza.

Family of four shared a large pizza and a salad for dinner after a matinee show. Plenty of food. Service was good and at 4:45 PM on Saturday we were seated within a few minutes of arrival. Much better pizza than we can get in Maryland. Atmosphere is excellent in the converted church. Even spotted a TV celebrity at the... More

Great pizzas - but huge! There were two of us and we shared a large pizza and still left 2 slices. Was great that they were able to do different toppings on each half. Nice to be able to peer over the balcony and watch your pizza cook in the huge wood fired ovens. Our server was great and stopped... More
