Like to go here once in awhile for a good pie. Service is spotty at times but has always been like that since day one.

I went there with my boyfriend and the waitress I believe her name was meagan was amazing. She was super sweet! The entire time she recommended a bunch of stuff for us. The pizza is out of this world I love there plain pie! The calzones are literally to die for. If I could have a death bed wish. I'd... More

This restaurant has a pleasant vibe in an old style setting. Servers are attentive and helpful. We decided to choose our own toppings for our pizza: Broccoli Rabe and Mushrooms on a Pizza Biancha (White Pie). It was wonderful with a nice thin crust. It's always a pleasure to eat here.

Very good pizza and calzones! Didn't take long to receive our food. The 4 teenagers (ages 16-18) we had with us devoured it barely leaving anything for mom and dad! Staff was friendly and prompt! I would definitely return often but we live in Ohio. So maybe next time.

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.
