My family and I recently visited NYC. We visited a few other pizza places first. A person on a food tour we went on told us to go to John's. This place is so great inside. It's old (been there I believe since 1929)...rustic....place always has a wait when we went by. We at a meatball, pepperoni and garlic pizza.... More

We had meals all over NYC recently but we both really loved the sausage and basil pizza at Johns. Its great to people watch and they were very friendly. If the locals go, then it must be good right?

After having good pizza at a few other NYC pizzerias, we were also recommended to try John's. We were pleased with the other places we had previously tried, but John's pizza blew those away! First it's coal fired pizza, so the crust is thin with just the right amount of crunch. I like that they let you do toppings for... More

This is very good pizza. It is a very authentic Italian place which is great. We waited for about 5 minutes but got a table after that. The service was fast and the pizza was great; what more can you ask for.

We have eaten here a couple of times and have really liked the pizza. It's a busy place, usually there is a wait, especially late-night it seems. My mouth waters just thinking about it! There is a full bar, too.

By far, best meal we had in NYC and most likely best pizza I ever had. A friend who lives in Italy recommended it after visiting NYC. So glad I went there. Love the authentic college feel of the place. Glad I didn't miss this.

We had just arrived at our hotel. We were tired and hungry from our flight to New York. The concierge at the Walked hotel suggested John's pizza which was near our hotel in Greenwich. It was only a 15 minute walk from our hotel to John's. The outside doesn't look like much. The inside looks a little bit like Geno's... More

I had the pleasure of dining at John's pizzeria during a school field trip with some teenagers from Wv. The staff seated us in the balcony and fed us buffet style since we were a large group.

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
