    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.

    Their pizzas are one of the best in Manhattan; love the restaurant atmosphere

    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!

    Get there off-peak time to avoid crowds.

    This place had great food. The pizza by the pie and not by the slice. Grab a salad also.

    Great food and great service! Sit upstairs if you can for a great view.

    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

    No slices here, but great full-sized pizza pies. Grab a beer and wait out the crowds at the bar.

    Just try any of their thin crust pizzas, among the best in the NYC area. And they also serve Sierra Nevada Pale Ale for those interested! Read more

    Great calamari too

    Good pizza but for a real treat, cross the street and go to Keste where you can have the best of the best.

    The pizza is cooked in a coal-fired brick oven, the same way it's been done there since 1929. Read more

    People seems to really like this place, I visited it just before they close and it was okay but nothing special. Might need to revisit it at a better time.

    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.

    Best pizza in town. And gotta try the ceasar salad.

    Lunch for two is no prob getting seated. Billy the bartender is the friendliest guy in this joint.

    Has it all - great service, amazing atmosphere (old church) and incredible food. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu but you're here for the 'za!

    Natasha Blair · January 14, 2011
  • Harish H.

    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!

  • Katie T.

    Gorgeous place to sit and have some really great pizza. It's usually crowded, but that's part of the charm.

    One of those can't miss places! Ambience is very nice and pizzas are very delicious,impeccable crust! Too busy location, a bit touristy. Highly recommend giving it a try, you won't be disappointed.

    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".

    I really really LOVE this place!!!

    Chicken Parm is not the best.. Pizza looks like it could be tasty

    Hal Ninek · March 27, 2013
  • Sam Z.

    Amazing pizza. Have the garlic rolls and a pizza pie. Delicious!

  • Mandy V.

    Ridiculous that they can't seat us when 8 out of 9 of us are here during lunch!

    Awesome venue for pizza, used to be a chapel. There is a really cool diagram on the wall if what Manhattan used to look like.

    Robert Molke · November 23, 2012

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

    Ben G · October 8, 2012
  • Jenny P.

    Not the best NY pizza I've ever had. Artichoke Pizza is much better.

    Jenny Pennington · July 29, 2012
  • Nic M.

    Try John's traditional with pepperoni and fresh basil. You won't regret it!

    Nic Miranda · June 9, 2012
  • Brian D.

    Margarita with basil. Simple, but the best.

    Brian DeVito · June 6, 2012
  • Shanelle R.

    This pizza place is HUGE inside. Perfect for large groups. Located right in the heart of the theater district.

    Thin crusted bianco pizza with spinach is divine

    Food is good, but waiters are too busy to take care of people

    M. B. · August 31, 2011
  • Luiz Z.

    Pizza gostosa mas não espetacular. Tempo de espera em torno de 10 minutos. Atendimento demorado. O salão é muito barulhento. O preço é justo já que não é muito caro.
