    Make sure you check out the ceiling. This place is an old renovated church.

    This pizza parlor serves the whole pie, so #DontBlowIt by asking for just a slice.

    The old church atmosphere is spectacular but the pizza is just as amazing. Nice thin crust with a brick-oven taste, come here for the quintessential New York pizza.

    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!

    Go to this branch of John's Pizza for great brick oven pies -- the meatball is a favorite of mine -- and the space: it's a former Baptist temple with a great mural. Read more

    Most pizza in NYC is pretty much the same, but I was impressed by John's. Every ingredient was fresh and it made for an outstanding pizza.

    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!

    Tourist trap. Go if you must. I'd rather have gone to the sliced pizza places on 8th avenue... Also - there's a *flagship* Shake Shack at the corner of 8th and 44th.

    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".

    Garlic rolls are incredible. Texture of a crisp cinnamon roll, but cheese and garlic. Ask for extra marinara sauce.
