About Us

John's Pizzeria opened its doors in the late twenties when the city streets were cobblestone, trolley cars were a familiar sight, and Henry Ford first introduced the Model-T™. Since then, our local pizzeria has become world-renowned and a legendary institution in New York City; a place where generations of New Yorkers and tourists alike have come to enjoy the finest pizza the city has to offer. Because of its wonderful reputation, John's has seen the Great Depression, a World War, and 14 United States Presidents.

John's Pizzeria originally opened its doors on Sullivan Street in Greenwich Village. When it lost its lease, John Sasso, the originator, dismantled the now famous brick oven and reassembled it at its current Bleecker Street address, where it continues to churn out incredible pizza.

The original booths, neon sign, tin ceilings, and black and white checkered floor create an atmosphere reminiscent of days gone by.

It was not until 1984 that John's decided to open a branch on the Upper East Side, where three decades later it continues to draw dedicated pizza fanatics.

Owned and operated by the same family that runs the original location, John's East Side has served and satisfied many Upper East Side residents, surrounding hospitals, and businesses. Top entertainment personalities frequent this location and some of their photographs, taken with the owner, adorn the walls.

Although John's East Side location is located off the beaten path, it has had continued success over the past two decades making what many pizza aficionados hail as the "very best pizza in New York City and beyond." John's also caters parties and special events and is very proud of its reputation as a child-friendly establishment.

What separates John's Pizzeria's pizza from the rest is its crisp, chewy crust, creamy mozzarella, fresh ingredients, and special sauce, which all meld together perfectly when baked in our 75-year-old oven.

This oven, fueled by anthracite coal, does not have thermostats or controls to regulate its temperatures and thus requires a trained eye to operate. It only takes minutes to bake a crisp pie, which comes out sizzling with perfectly charred, dark brown edges and burn spots scattered on the bottom.

John's Pizzeria features only handmade pizzas with no pre-set portion controls. Additionally, no two pizzas are exactly alike.
