The pizza here is soooo good, but leave room for the desserts. The Italian margarita is fantastic. This is a former theatre, so the atmosphere is perfect before a show. Great staff too. Gluten free options.

We stop here whenever we are visiting New York. Right off of Times Square, the food is great and reasonably priced and we love the atmosphere. Very family friendly.

My cousin and I were attending the Golovkinv/Jacobs fight at MSG so we stopped here before hand for food as it's a short walk away. She lives in New York and said I would love this place and she wasn't wrong! The service was fantastic with an extremely attentive waitress. We had a small pizza each which we both agreed... More

This pizza was amazing! The atmosphere was great. We went in on a Friday night around 5:30 and got in within 15 min or so?

John's was an excellent restaurant in Times Square. The pizza and calzones were delicious, among the best I've ever had. The restaurant itself was beautiful with plenty of seating. We were seated right away and the food did not take long despite it being pretty busy on a Saturday night. 5/5 Stars for sure, would recommend to anyone in the... More

I was in New York for the day to see a show and just wandered into this place. I've since read lots of these reviews and the glowing reviews are totally accurate. I love the taste of a coal-fire oven - the crispiness and partial charring are the best. This place perfects that and the resulting pizza is delicious. I... More

Because the pizza is amazing! This restaurant is in an old episcopal church. So cool! Very open and loud, but for some reason it's part of the charm and you really don't mind. We've tried many items on the menu, all of which have been great. But best of all the pizza which is made in a wood burning oven... 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.
