Pizza doesn't get any better than Johns on Bleeker. Almost 90 years old and still the best. If you like brick oven thin and crisp with excellent sauce and cheese, Johns is for you.

Excellent place for pizza (can't order by the slice though). We happened upon this little dive and so happy we did. Signage states they've been here since 1929 and we could see why. When we were in line (waited only about 5 minutes) a couple...More

A place that's been around forever. They haven't changed a thing and it with good reason. They know how to make an excellent pizza. We tried it as our taste of "classic New York pizza". Note that you can't get slices here, so be prepared...More

Visited whilst in NY on recommendation & absolutely not disappointed. Really great vibe to the place, food & service was second to none. It wasn't cheap but nowhere is in NY & it was well worth the money!

After reading all the reviews the wife and I decided to give Johns a try. The pizza was very good. We actually enjoyed it more than Lombardi's and Grimaldi's. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for great pizza in NYC.

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

Table for 4 is normally a 10-15 minute wait depending on the time. Parties larger than 4 should call and let us know what time your party will arrive. We do not accept reservations but it will help us get a better handle on... More

John's of Bleecker Street is a historic pizzeria founded in 1929 by Italian immigrant John Sasso. It serves quintessentially New York coal-fired pizza, famous for its perfect brick-oven baked crust and zesty tomato sauce.

John's is still family owned and operated, and boasts such celebrities as Conan O'Brien, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Danny DeVito. In 2016, it was voted #2 in America in the nationwide poll conducted by MSN.
