Wood fired pizza served in an old church complete with stained glass dome. It is casual, good, reasonably priced. Been numerous times and I keep going back! You will not be disappointed. Close to the shows so grab quick dinner and walk to the show of your choice!

Pizza ***** Service***** Ambience***** The pizza was delicious and perfectly prepared their brick oven. We were seated in about 40 minutes. The salad was simple and very good. The stained glass ceiling and artistic touches were very nice. Close to the theaters. A meal here needs to be on your bucket list.

Stopped in for an early lunch. We had a large party but they did their best to seat us quickly. Pizza has just enough sauce. The salads were very large and the beer was nice and cold.

We went with a large group and sat on the top balcony overlooking the large space below. The food was really good and the starters filled me up! The pizza was lovely also and they brought lots out for us to choose from. You could see the pizzas going into the old coal-fired brick ovens. It was converted into a... More

We visited on a Saturday night after multiple recommendations. We enjoyed a couple of reasonably priced beers at the bar while waiting for our table. The wait was not as long as expected for a Saturday night and not as long as they estimated when we put our name in. Once we got to our table, the service was very... More

John's came highly recommended and did not disappoint. It was an after show dinner and could not have been better. Cheap and cheerful and perfect! We shared a small (it was late) and had half Hawaiian and half Margherita; we were both very happy! Perfect location, perfect pizza, perfect service!

I am from Staten Island and have been away from my NY pizza for over 20 years, but when I get back I always go here. The brick oven pizza and atmosphere are incomparable to anything on this planet!

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.
