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 here due to his close friendship with founder John Pucciatti. Lucky Luciano and members of the "organization" he belonged to often dined here.

If you want to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of real Italy, this restaurant is best suited for you. Authentic Italian cuisine is excellent and healthy. The portions are sized and there is a menu for vegetarians. Meatballs, chicken parm, and, of course, pizza, are delicious. The chef cooks amazing tiramisu that is perfect for sweet lovers.

We have a good dining experience not only because of the food but the great and professional service and charming atmosphere. It’s good that among all there New York crowds you can find the cozy place where you can stop, have a rest and enjoy a simple but hearty meal.

The atmosphere makes John’s a perfect place to eat and bond with friends and family. This place is suitable for celebrating important events, such as birthday party or anniversary. It has a long history, in our rapidly growing world, you can hardly find any other place with such authenticity. Here, you can feel warmth and serenity.

Not a lot of restaurants left in New York that serve such amazing food, consistently. My wife and I go back time and time again for the calamari, chicken parm, and eggplant rollatini. Great service, friendly owners, and most importantly fair prices. The wine is priced right too. You can get a great bottle for under $25. Try the tiramisu for dessert.
Love this place, food was outstanding. Awesome service. Can't wait to go back and have dinner their again!
This was our first time indoor dining at John's of 12th Street during the pandemic. We dined often before the pandemic and always had great service with amazing food in this restaurant. This time was no different. Everyone was friendly and we felt comfortable being indoor even with the pandemic. The restaurant is big enough to give distance between the tables. Overall we were happy and will be back for more GOOD VALUES AND GREAT FOOD.
