The pizza is worth the trip, and the service issues. If you like thin, crispy crust, this is for you. The sauce is excellent. It doesn't need toppings, because it's perfect just the way it is. We order the salad and the pizza and are satisfied. Just know you can't get a slice; it's sold by the pie only. The... More

I was expecting a superb pizza after reading so many good reviews about this place, but other than maybe the well done crust or the tomato sauce on the pizza itself I can't think of too many things that I liked about it. I ordered mushroom topping and ended up getting some miserable out-of-the-can mushrooms on my pizza. Big disappointment!... More

If you want the best pizza you have ever had you need to go to Johnny's. This family run operation has been around since World War II. They have and always will be the best pizza. They open late for lunch...12:30, but it is worth the wait. Don't even try to buy a slice, they only sell by the pie.... More

Though we were staying in Rye, Johnny's got the best review for pizza in the area -- and they right! What we didn't know is they are closed on Sunday and Monday, but even more importantly, they don't open for lunch until 12:30. We were the first to be seated, and therefore also the first to order. Mistake! We should... More

My husband introduced me to this pizza 15+ years ago and we always stop in when we visit our family in Mt Vernon. I don't like pizza over loaded with cheese and this pizza has the perfect ratio of cheese and sauce - the thin crunchy crust it sits on makes the combination perfect! I also have a bowl of... More

Cash only, no slices or delivery, closed Sunday and Monday, but you will find me here almost every week. This pizza is addictive!! Super thin crust, just a little cheese, and just the right amount of sauce makes this pie PERFECT....Whenever my family visits from out of town, they insist we stop here on the way from the airport.....There is...

Once you eat Johnny's pizza, you will never be satisfied with anything else. They have the great sauce ever. Thin crust pizza at its best. With a cold beer and johnny's pizza, you'll think you are in heaven

I've lived in Mt Vernon for the last four years and couldn't seem to find good pizza until I found Johnny's per a friend's recommendation. They have VERY tasty, thin-crust pizza. It's the only thing I've eaten there, but it's worth having to get a whole pie (they don't sell slices.) Only downside is that they don't deliver, pick-up orders... More
