The charming little restaurant with small artworks of different parts of Italy and a fireplace and red and white checked tableclothes and real napkings cannot be beat for atmosphere. The delicious breads complement the wonderful Italian food (please try the lasagna, eggplant parmigiana and chicken marsala). The accompanying salad or pasta to most main courses is just delicious! Good wine selection and service is careful and personable. It is great alone, two people of a get together or a larger group. It is a hidden gem. There is a pizza area with small tables in the front if you are on the go, but I highly recommend taking time for a meal.

Imagine a piece of white toast with ketchup and American cheese. What they delivered was not exact;y that but it was equally poor. The crust had no puff and was tasteless, not unlike cardboard. It had very little cheese sauce and what was there was tasteless. In the past I have had decent, but not great, pies from there, but if my experience is what you will have, then order elsewhere.

I ordered BBQ chicken pizza, but I couldn't tell you what I actually got. Most unappetizing pizza I've ever got, don't ever eat at this place.

I grew up in Brooklyn and I have had some memorable food experiences, especially when it comes to pizza and Italian food. I recently moved back into NYC and, for the life of me, can't understand how most pizza places stay in business. Cardboard crust, overly sweet or acidic sauces, and just plain bad food. It's like it all came out of a Star Trek replicator...it LOOKS right, but tastes wrong. Someone told me to order from John & Tony's and tonight I did. THIS is what I've been missing. Went with basics just to get an idea (chicken parmesan w ziti, baked clams, a plain slice and a margarita slice). Pay attention pseudo-pizzarias: This is what pizza should taste like. Crisp and light, sauce with the right touch of oregano and slightly savory, cheese evenly displaced and not overly gooey. Chicken pounded thin, breaded and fried...you can cut it with a fork. Baked clams could have been browned more, but the lemony wine garlic sauce was the perfect vehicle for that gorgeous sesame crusted Italian bread included in the order....MMmmm....SLURP! I can't wait to try the rest of their offerings and make a visit to their cozy back dining room. Sounds like a time capsule that will turn a bad day into a happy nostalgic moment. These guys are old school Italian and know how to get it done. I've been saved!

Most of the reviews are about take out, and the food is very good. A bit above most pizzerias. But we really love the charming old fashioned back dining room, with it's red checked cloths and fake fireplace! Fun and funky, good cheap house wine, what's not to like? Particularly cozy in the winter, it's our go to place when in the area.

Penne Alfredo with: fresh garlic, shrimp, jalapeños, mushrooms, crushed red pepper and oregano. (They put the Parmesan cheese on the side) . This dish comes with a large piece of bread which you can request as garlic bread. I promise that this will be the best dish you've ever ordered for take out.

We order from here at least once a week and we love it. We've tried others in the neighborhood and this ranks far above most of the rest. Food isn't necessarily consistent in quality; but always good. We have tried lots of their food and particulaly love the veal parma and shrimp parma, caesar salad, pasta bolognese and pasta with garlic & oil, baked clams, baked ziti. Great value.
