John's is all about its pizza oven, a coal-burning monster that cooks with an infernal flame unmatched by gas-oven rivals. The pizzas cook fast but the bottom is crusty and the whole thing has a taste and texture all its own. The place is seedy and not a little dirty, but that's all part of its downtown charm.

You got to try this... – I love Pizza, I mean love it. My favorite spot in NY was in Brooklyn, but they now have comp. Fresh crisp crust, fresh sauce, great toppings. RIDICULOUS! I am not Italian, nor have a I been to Italy, so I can not compare, but I love this place. I don't like fresh Mozz, like at Lombardi's anyway. Lombardi's is not as good as John's. The sauce does not match up. Lombardi's crust is good, salty at times, but good, but John's is the BOMB! Try it.

John's Pizzeria - Bleecker – How the hell in our NYC days and many LATE nights on Bleecker have we missed this joint? I mean, it's been around forever and is a stone's throw from Peculiar Pub. And like Lombardi's (or vice versa), just whole pies - no slices, no credit cards, no kidding. This place also won Best Pizza on Citysearch 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2004. Come on you slackers, where've ya been the past few years? Don't get fat and lazy on us.

Walking into this place (after a slight wait) is like walking into the rathskeller...

THE BEST – This is the place to eat a casual meal in NY. Service was great and pizza was out of this world, thin,hot and without a doubt the best . You hear alot about other places being rude and poor quality food to us tourists but this is not the case at Johns.The food and service was so good we went back the following day and received the same great service and great pizza.We are now proudly wearing our Johns Pizzaria T-shirts and can't wait till our next vist to our new favorite pizza place.Don't forget to tip for good service and food because you will go back.

Great genuine New York Style Pizza – John's of Bleecker Street has been making pizza since 1929 and it is still going strong today judging by the number of persons who are already queueing up before 5 PM. This is a real honest-to-goodness genuine Italian pizza (and not at all resembling the Albanian pizza that are all over New York for those not in the know). John's makes its own red sauce and it is not salty or oily. It is made perfectly and you will come back for more, guaranteed.

This is a cash only business so be prepared. There is a cash machine inside if you forget.

Don't waste your time! – Standing on line wasn't bad --as the people on line were fun to speak to. but once inside, the staff were arrogant and ego's were the size of the room. They were rude, didn't come back to service our table, and then acted like you were just in the factory assembly line of customers.

This is not good NY Italian pizza; don't be fooled by the reviews. Ashame!

Good stuff... – Good stuff. We usually get half pepperoni and half meatball. Watch out for the line that starts outside-might want to get there a few min. early... def worth any wait...

Everyone who works there is pretty nice- not overly friendly- not under... have fun!! you'll love it!!!

My husband and I are cooking snobs...we are great cooks and love our pizza...we have traveled coast to coast trying pizza everywhere from very inexpensive to shamefully expensive pizza and THIS PIZZA IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't bother going anywhere else in NYC for pizza, go here, wait your turn and you'll be talking about it for a long, long time. I can't even begin to explain why or how...just try it!!!
