John's of 12th Street has been serving traditional Italian food at the same location for 111 years. Our menu has been showcased on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives and we have hosted Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown. John's also boasts a world famous vegan menu.

John's has been an East Village mainstay for over 100 years and our timeless interior has been featured on shows such as The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire.

In the early days, John's was a meeting place for Italian immigrants and anti-fascists. Early 20th century human rights activist Carlos Tresca was a frequent diner her due to his close friendship with founder John Pucciatti. Lucky Luciano and members of the "organization" he belonged to often dined here.

The food here was excellent! I would love to go back and try other things. The menu had so many wonderful options, it was hard to decide what I wanted. I ended up having chicken with lemon butter sauce and spaghetti. Loved it! The service was outstanding and the restaurant had a really neat atmosphere. The meatball and calamari appetizers were delicious as well. Maybe next time we'll save room for dessert.
The owner and I were singing "Leader of the Pack", which fits, as John's leads the pack on eggplant parmigiana. This long-time restaurant is authentic and attentive.
Good service but the pizza wasn't the best but it was still pretty good.
