    Authentic Italian menu in the heart of Manhattan. The locals recommended it so that's where I went! They also offer a whole grain pizza for dieters just out for a craving! Will return one day! :3

    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!

    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!

    A must visit if you're in NYC. Excellent thin crust pizza; though the Margarita is a bit underwhelming. Great service, atmosphere, and definitely order the cheesecake.

    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.

    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.

    The saloon makes clear it used to be a church before a pizza place. Nice to see great meal value in the heart of Manhattan. Fair price and good pizza

    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".

    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.

    Try the Linguine And Clams With White Clam Sauce - A generous portion that is the perfect balance of pasta, clams and sauce. #filling #tasty #pastalikememamade (via @Foodspotting)

    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.

    Cool spot. Dinning hall is old school looks like a theater and low lighting gives the place a nice ambiance. Pizza is coal fired and above average for NYC..but that's better than anything out of NYC

    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

    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.

    Their pizza is made from a brick oven and the dough was thin. It was pretty greasy. Best to get rid of the crowd and go for Rays.

    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
  • Andrea B.
    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.
  • Jineen C.
    always a good spot to grab a slice with a group or family when you're stuck in time square/theatre district area and hungry for some NYC pizza

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

    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.

    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.

    Buona pizzeria con forno a legna. La pizza è molto simile a quella italiana (sottile) quindi non aspettatevi la mega pizza spessa americana (potreste rimanerne delusi)
