Ok so no slices. Big deal! A medium pizza for $17 and trust me two people can eat it all. This pizza is no fuss and totally delicious. You MUST go. Our favorite pizza stop in the city.

We were recommended this pizzeria by our hotel concierge, as we were looking for a good pizzeria for my sons’ birthdays. Although we couldn’t book in advance, I’m glad we decided to go along and wait for a table. The restaurant was very busy (always a good sign), but it must have been our lucky night as we waited only... More

A friend of mine raved about this pizza place in New York and we decided to check it out whilst we were there a few days back in July. We were in for a treat. The actual restaurant itself is stunning enough to warrant a visit - there is a stained glass window on the roof which provides natural light... More

Love this pizza. Perfectly cooked, nice and crunchy. Excellent ingredients and toppings, tasty sauce. The place is cozy, classic straight up pizza parlor. Nothing fancy. Stella and Brooklyn Lager on tap. Since the place is a bit of a landmark, there is often a wait. It's worth it. Staff is good, a little brusque to keep you moving when the... More

Every visit to NYC should include a visit to John's Pizzeria. The Marguerita pizza is our favorite. The crust is perfect every time and the pizza sauce perfectly seasoned. Reasonably priced and good attentive service.

We were in the West Village and wanted some great NY pizza. Have not eaten here in several years and were very disappointed. The pizza is very ordinary.....there are much better pizza places in the city and that says it all.

We waited for about 1.5 hours when we went there at 7PM but when we were done and coming back at about 9.30pm there was no queue and no wait time. So if you dont want to wait go after 9pm probably.

I visited here in Aug 2016 after a day of walking lower Manhatten. I had been recommended this pizzeria before I arrived in NYC and boy was it good! I was shown to a table almost immediately and shown the menu. I just had a pepperoni pizza and it was cooked to perfection. Probably one of the best pizzas I... More

Went here on Friday afternoon to try the pizza. While it is good, I have had better and pizza is my favorite food to eat. There are other places in NYC that are better.

Only one of 6 coal fire pizza joints left in Manhattan.... Because they've been there since 1929. Really good NYC pizza and was a great place to stop after walking all over Mnahattan on a beautiful fall day. We got there early and were really hungry - by the time that we left the line outside (you have to wait... More

Staying in West Village

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.
