No way to go wrong with John's Pizzeria. We go every time we are in Times Square. Double cheese and pepperoni is the best.

Great pizzas right in the middle of Times Square. This restaurant was very busy but we didn't have to wait long to get a table. For Time Square the prices were reasonable and the portions HUGE! Friendly staff in great surroundings! Would recommend a visit!

Nice atmosphere and bigger than it looks. It's fun to watch them make the food. Go early as they get busy and don't take reservations! Food was outstanding!

Fabulous pizza in a wonderful setting....a former church. Love the story about how the restaurant got its start. The pizza was good, reasonably priced and quick! A gem of a find in Times Square!
