Description: John's of Bleecker Street is a historic pizzeria founded in 1929 by Italian immigrant John Sasso. It serves quintessentially New York coal-fired pizza, famous for its perfect brick-oven baked crust and zesty tomato sauce. John's is still family owned and operated, and boasts such celebrities as Conan O'Brien, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Danny DeVito. In 2016, it was voted #2 in America in the nationwide poll conducted by MSN.

My mouth is watering right now, thinking of that delicious pizza! Thin crust, great chewy edges, perfect amount of toppings and cheese - delicious! We had a house salad to start, it was excellent, too. Cold beer rounded out our meal - the three of us were stuffed! We lucked out and didn't have to wait for a table (it was a Thursday night about 8:30) - one table was open! Highly recommend this great place in the West Village area. Cash only!

John's served up a great thin crust brick oven pizza for our party of 2. The pizza arrived quickly. The crust was beautiful, the sauce was juicy and the toppings nicely done. The service was prompt and our waiter was attentive. We ordered the small pizza and overate trying to finish it all! 2 suggestions: John's should note names of waiting customers rather than have them stand in a queue. Restrooms are smelly/dirty.

I always order a plain cheese pizza when trying a new pizza place, and John's was GREAT! Thin crust, slightly sweet sauce, and perfect amount of cheese. You cannot order slices, must order a whole pizza (comes in different sizes), but it is definitely affordable and worthwhile. I have been recommending it to everyone! Can't wait to go back. Very casual atmosphere with wooden booths that have lots of initials etc carved into them. Nice place to bring the kids.

I had looked this place up online before my trip to NYC, and there were articles where people were touting this place to have THE best pizza in NYC. After reading this I said to myself I have to go check this place out! So after a $25 cab ride I get there and order a pizza, pizza finally comes and boy what a disappointment it was! I think the pizza was mediocre at best, I don't know maybe I caught them on a bad day but that pizza definitely was not worth all the effort to go there! If you're thinking of going here do yourself a favour and just go to Domino's or Pizza Hut instead!
