We ordered from Johnny Napkins on good friday. We ordered a special Brooklyn pizza, mussels fra diablo and mozzarella sticks. The food was hot and delicious and ready fast. Stay home, stay safe and order dinner from a great local restaurant.

The first thing I ordered from Johnny Napkins was the grandma pizza. It was the most delicious pesto pizza I've had. I'm more of a traditional red sauce and mozzarella kind of guy but that pizza was near perfect. The crust was crispy and not...too thick and the mix of pesto with the cheese was really good. Although that continues to be the family favorite I've had the chicken parm dinner and the hero. Both were delish and the portions were good too. Most of the time I order and they deliver. I finally visited the restaurant and the staff were totally enjoyable. Everyone seemed to have a great attitude which made me feel really comfortable. Overall, Johnny Napkins is Johnny on the spot when it comes to Italian food.More

I'm from NY but have lived in California for the last 30 years. It's hard to find a good pizza in California so when I travel to the East Coast I try to find a good pizza restaurant in the area where I'm staying. Came...across Johnny Napkins and I must say the make a great Pizza tried several different slices all were very good. Excellent customer service.More

I placed an order for delivery. The online total was $20.18, when I received my order, the total on the receipt was $27.09. The driver was rude because I was in the powder room and didn't answer on the first call. When I saw my...total I called and told them to pick the order up, I wasn't paying more than I was initially told. Someone called me back and kept calling me "Honey", they told me to check my attitude as if I shouldn't be upset for being overcharged. Their customer service leaves a lot to be desired. Too many places to order pizza from to be treated like garbage.More

One of the best pizza I have eaten so far. A place where you get pizza and other Italian fare. Good hot piping out of the oven right then and there. A smallish place with some tables but we did a takeaway. We had vegetarian...pizza with lots of toppings. Mouthwatering delicious.More

Pizza here is amazing. Definitely the best in town, and one of the best in New Jersey. Pastas are delicious as well

Ordered twice from here and haven't been disappointed either time. Pizzas have been fresh, hot and exactly as ordered. A bit greasy but still that's to be expected - no complaints. Reasonably priced and good pizza - it's all good! We would (and have) gone...back for more!More

My wife and I decided we wanted to make our evening a pizza night. Since moving to this town, we've tried a couple pizza places in town. Most were your standard fair but I was impressed with Johnny Napkins the second I placed an order....A little bit about the place... It's located on Morris Ave and I remember it by it's former name Lil John's Pizza. It's one of those places that stands out because the original signage had an illustration similar to a character on that show "King of the Hill." I always found that amusing. Well, in a few months the signage changed to "Johnny Napkins." Original and so Jersey! I like it. Reminds me of my Italian friends growing up. Anyway, I placed my order on Seamless.com and since I use that site often, I was immediately impressed. (except, i couldn't find drinks on that menu online) I selected pickup and was given a time when my order would be ready. You know what, the time was accurate. Since this place in on a busy street, parking is located in the back. The signage back there still has the old Lil John illustration (yes!) and once inside, you'll notice this place is kinda nice. Actually, probably the nicest looking pizza joint in town. I go up to the counter and the owner immediately greets me. I tell him I have a pickup and he acknowledges that I was the online order. That's me! He was very friendly btw. That's always a plus. Turns out their Seamless deal is new so he seemed happy someone was using it. If you read this, I love it! Hope they aren't charging you too much for the service. I got a large cheese pizza and decided to try their Napkin Fries. Wow, it was delicious. The sauce on the pizza is what really put this over the top over the other joints in the area. And the fries, amazing. It had cheese and bacon. You can't go wrong with that. So in conclusion, my wife and I will definitely order again soon (i actually ordered the next day but didn't tell her). So Johnny Napkins, congrats on being my new favorite pizza joint.More
