We had this recommended by one of the bus tour operators and it was that good we went twice. Food was amazing and the only reason this didn't get a 5 is because its bloody freezing most people are sitting around in their coats.

Right across the street from the Majestic Theater, we stopped here after a matinee show. I forgot that NY style pizza is thin crust - and I hate thin crust. But I have to say it was really good, I mean REALLY good. You gotta try the garlic rolls if you go. Warning: they are strong but so, so good!

Great place for families to sit back and have some fine Italian food. Can be noisy at times but that's because everyone wants to eat there.

I wish there was a 2 1/2 rating. We have been to Johns maybe 4 times and each time we have had service issues. The food is ok but not good enough to justify the lack of service. We had to ask for everything...bread...our drinks. The hostess put us in a corner upstairs near a pizza making station when there was plenty of tables left available as we were there in between lunch and dinner. We asked to be moved and she said, "what do you want? It is noisy everywhere in here". The waiter did not speak English well and there seemed to be a language barrier. The food is just ok and the service is poor. I normally would not write negative reviews but the poor service has been consistent each time we have been there.

John's Pizzeria is a really great place to eat near Times Square. The food is excellent, service is fast and friendly, and the setting is really interesting (it's a former church). This place has an authentic NYC feeling - big, bustling, and fun. You get a whole lot of delicious food for a moderate price. It's a big place so the noise level is a little high, but not too bad. We will definitely go back again and again.
