Description: Located in a unique 19th century church, the country's largest pizzeria is the perfect budget-friendly location for small and large groups to enjoy NY's famous thin-crust, brick oven pizza. Founded in 1997, John's is conveniently located in Times Square, and is the ideal restaurant to enjoy pre- and post-theater meals with family and friends. Capable of seating 400 people, John's can handle groups of any size gracefully in a NY minute

We ate there one night and had the brick oven pizza and it was very good. We stopped in another evening and had some traditional Italian dishes and they were very disappointing. Eat the pizza, forget the rest.

This is the BEST place to eat pizza in NYC and it's located in a beautiful building that was once a church. Gorgeous church features.

The pepperoni pizza we had at John's Pizzeria was terrific!!! We ordered a small pizza and that was plenty big for us. Service was excellent. If you are in the Times Square area, this is a must restaurant. Excellent!!!

After reading reviews and recommendation from tour as well as advertised in the new york pass guide visited here thinking a lovely pkace 2 eat. Food was good but service was diabolical. No interaction from staff. They all appeared to be not bothered walking round with hands in pockets. Food was just dumped on table. I never write reviews or complain however was very dissappointed with service as a visitor.
