    Went to John's Pizzeria to taste the classic New York pizza and was not disappointed. I ordered a margherita pizza with pepporoni, a Brooklyn Lager and for desert had a cheescake. Everything was great

    I know this is in the middle of tourist central but if you're in Hell's Kitchen and are craving good pizza this is the place to come to. Added bonus is that they have Palm on tap!

    One of our favorite places to come for a pizza dinner with friends! This huge space is open late. Try a Traditional with Prosciutto and Basil. Fried Calamari is good too!

    This is the best pizza place in NYC. It took me 4 trips to find a place and the pizza is brilliant as is the garlic bread and bruschetta. I came twice on my last visit a must for anyone visiting

    This was quite possibly the best pizza I've ever had. We sat next to the front window, a much smaller part of the restaurant, which was nice. Check out the ceiling in the larger part! Very good value

    2nd time here. a good place to have dinner with friends. The pizza is good. Just take care that they don't serve slices, I had to eat it all on my own . You will eat it all anyway as it's delicious.

    Sorry, not too god pizza. Crust is ok, but very thick. Prosciutto was far from what expected, thick and salty, (probably not really prosciutto) and the pizza had garlic even though I didn't order it.

    BEST pizza in NYC! This place is amazing - everything from the food to the fact it's a renovated church makes this a must-visit place! We'll definitely be visiting again next time we're in Manhattan.

    Best pizza in New York! Freshly made (in front of you if you get a good seat), and not too much sauce. Great tasting, big slices! Go with classic pepperoni you won't regret it. Pastas are good too.

    Others foods are also good but obviously they are known for their pizza. At meal time a line can be very long so especially at lunch time if you have fixed amount of time you can be out, beat crowd

    I ate at the bar and received exceptional service, equivalent to four-star pleasant, friendly-but-not-overly-so, deferential, excellently trained service. Closer to Michelin-star than "pizza joint".

    John's has the best traditional, thin-crust, New York-style pie. And this is their best location to experience - a huge, beautiful, sweeping former cathedral, complete with stained-glass windows.

    Service was lacking on our visit, seemed like it was more of a hangout spot for employees than a restaurant... But the pizza more than made up for it. Delicious. Sauce was rich and flavorful

    Asked an officer for a good pizza place. He recommended John's. Walked in n everyone ignored us. Finally got seated n our waiter was stoic/unfriendly. Hoping the food makes up for the list service.

    If you order apps do so before your pizza otherwise it will all come out at once even if you tell them otherwise. Then they bring you back the cold food later. Very chaotic and unprofessional.

    The pizzas are enormous. A small will yield 6 generously sized slices. If you're not in the mood for pizza, the eggplant parmesan is a tasty alternative.

    The "default" pizzas are very low on cheese - you might want to ask for extra as a topping, if you like a positive ration of cheese to sauce.
