I went to the restaurant on the recommendation of 'Eric's New York Trip', and it did not disappoint! Only had the medium pizza (the smallest size that they offer) and it was more than enough for me. However, the only thing I found a bit surprising was the price. $23 was the total mine came to, and I only had... More

There are many places in New York to get pizza and even many named John's. For us, John's of Bleeker is the best. Thin crispy crust with flavorful toppings. A staple of every visit to the city. Small place, sometimes there is a line, especially in the summer, but the wait is not usually too long.

If your are in Greenwich village and looking for a traditional New York pizza, stop looking, this is the place. For a couple or with friends, the location and the place are great.

My wife and I were recommended John's of Bleecker Street by our Highline and Chelsea tour guide, as it had authentic New York-style pizza. The place and the food were up to expectactions and, although it is not the best I've ever had, it is definitely very good and very 'natural' and home-made. There are no ready-made pizza styles that... More

Wanted authentic NY style pizza. Maybe I was expecting to much, but I thought it would be better. Ok service. The Brooklyn Summer Ale was good. Tried the Bleeker Street pizza to compare and this was much better. Lots of history and on many peoples best pizza list. Worth a visit.

John's is one of the best traditional pizzeria's in NYC - maybe even the best. Great sauce, great crust, and the right amount of cheese. You can only order by the pie - one pie is good for two people. Calzone's are also good, but the plain pizza is the way to go. Very affordable.

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
