Excellent thin crust with whole wheat available in an old cathedral setting (don't forget to look up at the ceiling). This place was both an attraction and a great Pizza meal. We managed a large between the two of us and enjoyed every bite. A must if in manhattan, in the theater area

Having had many poor expensive meals in NYC we were so pleased that we discovered this gem. Authentic pizza and pasta in a lovely setting with great atmosphere. Pizza was one of the best I've tried. $38 dollars excluding tips for one large pizza, pint of lager and large coke. The best meal in NYC and also the cheapest

Wonderful pizza but very long line! We had to wait in line for about 40 minutes to get a table! If you've never been, it is worth a visit, but if your just going to grab some pizza, go grab a dollar slice around the corner!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! Since we make all of our pizzas to order, the quality of the slice place around the corner would be very different then ours since our pizzas do not sit under heat lamps for hours at a time.

On a December trip to New York, my son was adamant on trying New York style pizza - of the type recommended by Jon Stewart. We found John's right across from Majestic Theatre and were not disappointed. The interior is a repurposed church with high ceilings and beautiful stained glass. The pizza was hot, fresh and tasty. We ordered a... More

Was told this was one of the best pizza places in NYC by a local tour guide. Pizza was decent but not amazing. The salads were huge and could be shared by 2-3 people easily. Atmosphere was on the fancier side of things. Service was okay but could barely hear the waiter as he was so quite, not because it... More

I've been to New York four times and visit John's every time. Formerly a church, the dining area looks MUCH different than what you might expect when you first walk in. I love the beautiful illustration of Manhattan on the wall, and I definitely enjoy the pizza (even if it's on the pricier side).

Located in the theater district, this is a place that is always busy. They offer terrific brick oven pizzas. Great Cocktails too! We enjoyed the garlic mozzarella bread too. They have an extensive selection of pizza toppings. They have pasta that looked good also, but I can't go to John's and not have the pizza. This restaurant is in a... More

We popped in here on Sunday lunchtime. Deceiving from the outside but fabulously laid out and pleasantly surprised upon entry. Big crowd already in there and we were shown to a waiting area where we only had to wait for a few minutes. Excellent choice of food on the menu with quality to match. A very good and helpful staff... 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.
