This is definitely NOT to be missed if you want to experience authentic New York Pizza. We had been on the Big Bus Tour, and our guide recommended it. So, we showed up about 4pm on afternoon, tired and starving. I think we would have eaten the napkins at that point, because we had been going non-stop since early morning.... More

I'm from Chicago and we have fantastic Pizza. I wanted to compare to an authentic New York Pizza and I found it. It is in a lovely former church. We were seated right away. It was a bustling place with many waiters and even many more customers. The tables are pretty close together. The waiters work fast and are pleasant... More

Johns pizza is an institution in New York City and the food did not disappoint. Quality pizza, large servings, good ingredients all thumbs up! Unfortunately the servers let this joint down. When we were seated it seemed a hassle and I could soon see why. We obviously had interrupted a good chat and phone session. As we sat waiting to... More

Always a good meal before or after a show. Pizza is the best...pasta, too. Don't forget to leave room for cheesecake

Ate dinner here after broadway show. The pizza was very good. The building looks like it might have been a theatre in the past. Service was good. My biggest complaint is sodas where $5 even for refills which I didn't realize until the bill. I would eat their pizza again.

Thank you for your review. Like most restaurants in the Times Square area, we do not offer free refills on sodas, and our 16 ounce pint of soda is $3.00. We are very glad you enjoyed the pizza and we do hope to see you when you return to NYC. More

The atmosphere, the service, and especially the PIZZA is the best in NYC. We go every trip to the Big Apple! The later you go, the line is longer but it really does go quickly. This is a thinner crust...more Florentine than Neopolitan.

We've searched the island, trying every highly reviewed pizzeria and our vote is for John's Times Square. The property is really cool with an incredible mural in the main dining room. But that only adds to the experience, the highlight here is the brick oven pizza. Absolutely fantastic! We started with the Antipasto Salad which was a great choice. On... More

Johns Pizza is a must see. The pizza is to die for with thin crust style. Their pizza is fantastic. It's a busy place so be prepared to wait if you don't have reservations. The location is a former church making it unique. Once you order the food comes relatively quickly. Highly recommend.

DO NOT eat here if you have Celiac disease or food allergies. We went to John's the other night and left totally horrified by our experience. After assuring us they would be able to safely cook gluten free pasta for us, they delivered my 7 year old daughter with Celiac Disease wheat pasta. I doubled checked with both the food... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
