“This Is the Best Pizza in NYC”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We have all heard that this city or that city has the best pizza. I've tried them all...John's is the absolute best. This is real pizza, not the stuff with a heavy, doughy crust, thick sauce or tasteless cheese. Picture a perfect blend of thin crispy crust, light sauce and cheese. I bet I go more than once this trip to NYC. Worth the wait- whatever it is!

“Day out with Daughter”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Went for dinner after "Cinderella" matinee. No waiting. Server was pleasant enough but not overly friendly. He did come after each course to make sure our food was fine. Had Fried Calamari appetizer and Pizza Bianco for dinner. Considering the restaurant is in the middle of Times Square prices were extremely reasonable. Saw some of "New York's Finest" having dinner there so I guess that's a good indicator of the food.

“Great value for Times Square area- Awesome Pizza!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Fast friendly servers, great value for area. The pizza was really good and we had more than enough for our family. This was by far our cheapest meal in NYC but also one of the best!
