    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!

    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.

    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

    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

    M. G. S. · November 4, 2012
  • James S.

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

    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

    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!

    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 roll is a must order at this place

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

    Hal N. · March 27, 2013
  • Andrew W.

    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.

    Andrew W. · March 9, 2013
  • Sam Z.

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

    Sam Z. · February 20, 2013
  • Mandy V.

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

  • Robert M.

    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 M. · November 23, 2012
  • Ben G.

    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 P. · July 29, 2012
  • Nic M.

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

    Nic M. · June 9, 2012
  • Brian D.

    Margarita with basil. Simple, but the best.

    Brian D. · June 6, 2012
  • Shanelle R.

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

  • Diana S.

    Actually the best pizza in NYC. Try the linguini with pesto sauce, and add chicken cutlet and sun dried tomatoes.

    Diana S. · January 26, 2011

    The place reminds me of the Spaghetti Factory except that SF has good food.
