Our car service guy actually recommends this place. What a great place, huge portions of pasta, salad and great pizza. Love that this is in an old church. Very cool and great food

Decided to try the pizza given the bunch of positive comments found online. First of all, this is not a place where you'll find a real Italian pizza. The mozzarella used here is one of those fake products made of milk powder that burn rather than melt when in the oven. Apart from the very low quality of the product,... More

We stopped for a late lunch one afternoon. The panini I order was huge and delicious. Of course I had to take half home which was good for lunch the next day. We ordered a small pizza because we had to try it and it was good!!! I should have just ordered pizza. My sandwich came with a side salad... More

We've all eaten pizza... lots and lots of pizza. Truthfully, in all my years and all the pizza I've eaten, John's was the best. My wife agreed. We arrived Friday night around 6:30 PM and found a spot up at the bar that gave us access to the Happy Hour drink specials. My wife did the personal Hawaiian Pizza and... More

Came here twice on our trip to New York/Jersey City. Food was really good. There's a good choice of food on the menu and the pizzas are huge. Serving staff are really friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and it was nicely decorated for Christmas - one to definitely check out.

I ordered a small margarita pizza and wings and it took about an hour and 45 min. When I called they said they were on their way but another twenty minutes pass and they still were not here so that obviously was not true. The pizza was okay and not even that hot so that was another disappointment after waiting... More

We were staying at a hotel and needed to order dinner and this place had high ratings on Trip Advisor so we tried it out. As we ordered, we explained to the person that we were at a hotel and needed plates and napkins etc. to share. I confirmed that this would be no problem before we placed the order.... More

John's Pizzeria is perfect for an evening with friends. Share an appetizer or two or three and some pizzas and you're good to go. Beautiful building too.
