I always meant to visit this pizzeria, after many trips to New York, we finally went this year. The reviews are true. The whole family were completely blown away by the pizza. The whole restaurant is uncomplicated, the staff were unobtrusive yet very friendly. I really wish we had a pizza place like this on my doorstep. Don't miss it.

John's Pizzeria was the best New York pizza we had while visiting. The building had lots of character, and the place was packed. Great Service and we enjoyed our meal tremendously!

John's Pizzeria is the original founded in 1929. It's located on busy Bleecker Street in West Greenwich Village near Christopher Street in a great location close to the Christopher Street Subway Station. There's a lot of activity in this neighborhood filled with restaurants and shops. The pizza makers at John's Pizzeria without question need remedial training. A trip to Verona,... More

Your visiting from out of town and you want to try some of that famous New York Style pizza. This is the place. You have to buy it as a whole pizza not by the slice but boy is it worth it. My recommendation from the huge choice on the menu is go for anything as long as it has... More

Went here for lunch. 14" pepperoni pizza between the two of us. Absolutely devine, like nothing I've tasted anywhere. I think the difference was in the cheese and sauce. Service was fast and we had our hot fresh pizza in 10mins of ordering. Only downside was a floater in my wife's Bud. This was quickly changed for a fresh with... More

What can I say. The pizza is awesome. We had a pizza with sausage, roasted tomatoes and mushrooms. My husband thought we would not finish the pizza. It was so good we could not stop eating. One of the best pizza's I have ever had.

Traditional, tasty and memorable pizza. Very excited to visit Johns after a local's recommendation and so glad we did. Don't get this place mixed up with any other John's, this is the original and best pizza I/we have ever had. The restaurant is very cool with family painted artwork, very cool booths to sit at, and most of all, great... More

We took the advice of several people and had pizza at Johns on Bleeker St in New York. It was a good fit for us and some friends from Australia we met on our tour as the atmosphere was nice & laid back. However the lack of basil or any other seasonings on our pizzas did not satisfy any of... More

What can one say that hasn't already be said about John's? I'd been savouring my visit here for about 18 months and John's didn't disappoint! We arrived at around 5pm on a sunny august week day and was pleased to see we had beaten the crowd. We ordered a large thin crust half pepperoni and half tomato pizza, it was... More

John's Pizzeria has an amazing pizza!!!! However, the service is terrible................The serves were extremely rude! You would expect from a 30-40 dollars pizza a better and nice service. What a shame...
