The best coal crusted pizza in Manhattan. Built in an old church it is large enough to seat plenty of people. The lasagne is to die for as well. It is within a couple blocks of time square.

John's pizza has been around for ages and has become of the landmarks of the city. NY style pizza does not get more authentic than this: baked in a coal fired oven, sauce drizzled on top of the cheese, moderately crispy crust and just pure...More

Called into John's for a Saturday lunchtime pizza during a walking tour of NY. The place was buzzing and exactly fits the image I have of a locals' place. Next time I'm in NY I would definitely go again.

Classic New York pizza 'joint' experience, right down to the slightly surly attitude from the waiter. Really delicious thin crust pizza, slightly charred and crispy. It's not a big space so, I like to go mid-afternoon, between lunch and dinner rushes. No slices available, full...More

This Pizza joint is a great find in Bleeker Street. Waitstaff are a bit slow, but I gues that was because the place is packed. Be prepared to queue outside for while before being seated as they don't accept reservations. Pizzas were great, quite large...More

We have been here 3 different times and there's a reason why we'll keep returning... This is probably the best pizza in town. Quick service, friendly staff, LARGE pizza, reasonably priced. We are always happy and satisfyingly full every time. Delicious!
