John's Pizza

John's of Times Square on Urbanspoon

A return visit to John's of Times Square.  Conveniently located on 44th Street in what was once a church, this is a lovely spot for pre- or post- theater dinner.    The place is always busy.  We got there at 5 PM on a Saturday and had a 45 minute wait.

Although the place is famed for its brick oven pizza, this time around we opted for chicken dishes.  I had chicken scampi served over a bed of pasta, Drew had chicken marsala.  Both were excellent.  We shared an order of garlic bread with mozzarella -- also wonderful. 

Service is, well...adequate.  Nothing to complain about, but nothing remarkable either.

Two things to keep in mind, if you go.

The wait staff wear shirts that say "no slices".  And they mean it.  If you choose pizza, you must buy a whole pie.  They do not sell pizza by the slice. 

And if you're going to drink a lot of soda, order a pitcher.  As per the menu, they do not offer free refills on soft drinks. 

But the food -- especially the pizza -- is worth the trip.
