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.

This restaurant has been in the neighborhood for years and it never disappoints! I've never had a disappointing meal here. The pasta dishes are especially good.

Let me cut to the chase- after being advised to order delivery only. I called to place a modest order (caesar salad, garlic bread, and chicken wings) and the man who answered the phone was incredibly rude. I was completely rushed through my order and off the phone. After 45 min and no delivery, I called to check on the order. I was told the delivery person got lost (I live three blocks south of the restaurant on the same street). I tried to tell him that I wanted to cancel my order and he hung-up on me. Ha! Seriously. So I waited. After 75 min I called again. I was told that another delivery person was going to be sent. Ninety minutes later my food finally arrived. This is NYC...not know for friendly customer service, ok fine...but the delivery person showed up at the door and it was like pulling teeth to get him to tell me what the cost was! Anyway...the food- cold, as you might imagine. The only saving grace this place has is it's chicken wings. I hate to say it, but after they were warmed up they were pretty delicious. If you are hard up for wings, order 2 hours in advance and expect rude, hasty service.
