Went to John's on a recommendation. The pizza did not disappoint. The crust was very then and the sauce was perfect. It is a tiny place with a quirky ambience. Everything was great except for the service. It seemed like it was a bother for the guy to talk to us. Then when my teenage daughter spilled her drink, we... More

For our kids first visit to NYC, we had to properly educate them on NY pizza. The kids loved it and so did the parents. We are vegetarians, so we can't comment on the meat, but we liked the tomatoes and garlic as a topping and they also had good ricotta and mushrooms. The four of us also shared a... More

Me and my friend managed to dodge a day out shopping with the ladies and headed in to Manhattan for the day. A few days earlier our hosts recommended John's as the best Pizza place in Manhattan. We stopped in for a late lunch and we were not disappointed. The pizza was some of the best that I have eaten... More

Went here on a friends recommendation. I real appreciated the historical coal oven, the place itself is like you stepped back in time. Nothing fancy about the restaurant. Pizza was authentic and excellent.

I treated my children a few months ago to this delicious pizza. Since we were quite hungry, our party was 4, I ordered 3 Large plain pies. The Pizza is cooked in a coal fired brick oven. The 3 pizzas were brought to our table on a three tiered mini rack. About the Pizza: Mozzarella and Tomato, charred crust on... More

The Pizza at John's is exceptional. When I think of New York Pizza, I think of John's John's is a perfect example that illustrates the difference between tourist pizza and real pizza

Dear John's Pizzeria, Your pizza was total perfection. The salad was all kinds of deliciousness. I almost never drink Coke but on this occasion, it was warranted and I am not sorry. Service was the best. Atmosphere was so great that even just sitting in the room made me happy. So from now on, any visit I make to NYC... More

Visiting NYC we had to try some traditional NY Pizza and after much research I settled on this place, not to mention its a walk away from Carrie Bradshaw's apartment so perfect for any SATC tour enthusiasts..! The place was rammed but we got a seat in a booth quickly enough. Service was average paced and we had some Brooklyn... More

We think it's the best pizzeria in N.Y. Bleecker St. is a fun place to visit as well with a cool guitar shop across the street from John's.

The pizza was so good we went twice. This restaurant has been here since the 50s and doesn't look like it has changed since then. Don't let the rough and old fashioned interior put you off! The service is quick and the pizza is out of this world!
