One of the only gems in Mount Vernons tainted Crown

If ever there was a reason to go to mount Vernon New York this is about the only reason. This family oriented and operated restaurant is a testament to old world Italian pizza. Never a disappointment and always a spiritually uplifting pizza experience. If only you could get a slice to go lol... read more

Their pizza is excellent. Thinner crust than most nearby pizzerias. Service is OK. They are definitely more expensive than the neighboring pizzerias and they only accept cash.

I've been eating at Johnny's for years and they have hands down, the best pizza anywhere. This is an old school pizzeria and they only serve pies and no slices. The pizza is extremely thin and crispy, and the cheese goes on first and the sauce on second. Order more pizza than you think you can eat, since the pizza... More

Went to Westchester County for a sporting event and scouted out highly rated Pizza Restaurants and I came across Johnny's Pizzeria. So far, I have never gone wrong by following Tripadvisor ratings. All I can say is that Johnny's has New York Pizza at it's finest with perfect crust and fresh tasting toppings. Pizza arrived pretty quicky despite the Restaurant... More

Great blast from the 80's! old pizzeria with no thrills, just a great thin crusted, crispy pizza pie! Don't expect anything modern here but please come if you want to try a real good plain pizza!

Cash only, no slices, simply the best thin crust flavorful pies. Family owned, no atmosphere, in business forever...it is the real deal!

Pizza aside, the anger in this pizza place is on par with the inmates at Rikers Island ( NYC ). The folks who work there would have been more at home working in Treblinka than a place where CUSTOMERS are normally expecting the owner(s)/staff to be welcoming and appreciative. The only place that exudes warmth is the pizza oven. The... More

If you want a fantastic thin crust pizza, try Johnny's. Don't expect a warm, inviting staff, From the owner on down, the service generally stinks, parking is impossible. the best time to go is for lunch when the staff is not so stressed(they take the phones off the hook if it gets too busy). If you want the same style... More

Decided to grab some pizza with my boys. I've been here a number of times for just pizza, which is good. I like their thin crust and sauce. I got a meatball parm, which was ok, but it's the pizza that I was there for. While there are a number of other places that have good pizza, you still have... More
