A neighborhood favorite. We typically dine there several times a month. Great service. Excellent pizzas, terrific salads. We take out-of-town guests there frequently and all rave about the food and service. Highly recommend.

Pizza is easily the best pizza in the neighborhood and I know of only one other in Manhattan that I think is as good. Because the pizza is so outstanding, we rarely try the other dishes, but they have been very good. Seating is a little tight but acceptable for an informal Manhattan place. Absence of coat rack or or a SINGLE coat hook ANYWHERE is a real inconvenience that gets worse with cold weather. I will walk away if the place is crowded since I can't guess where we'd put long coats, bulky fur coats. This is really shocking indifference to a customer's comfort and the quality of the total experience. Napkins are annoyingly flimsy, really short-sighted, penny-wise and pound foolish. Put a couple in your pocket before leaving home; won't hurt, might help. But if you can manage the cold with just a jacket or short coat and have an extra napkin in your pocket, the pizza is glorious.

Food was great but manager is horrible. Manager asked us why we didnt tip more in the middle of us paying, forcing the other half of our party to give a larger tip. When we brought up to the manager that this was unprofessional and uncomfortable she started to fight with us making the experience worse. We do not want to come back anymore which is a shame as the food was good. Although we still gave a reasonable tip, we decided to give a bit less due to the fact they we mentioned to our waitress mulitple times we were suprising a friend for their birthday. They never brought out the dessert and gave us the check - ruining the birthday. We also had 2 different waitresses throughout our meal. Would not recommend going here as management is known to be rude.

As always, we had a lovely evening with the wonderful food and staff. It would be nice if in such a small, intimate space, that the music were not so overbearingly present. It makes it difficult for a conversation, and there is quite enough ambient noise with the other diners. Music should be an enhancement, not an interference. So hope that the noise level is adjusted so we an continue to enjoy Numero 28.

A++ - we have enjoyed many family celebrations at Numero 28 UWS. The staff & the food are always fantastic! Francesca, the manager & Tamara, our server are so incredibly accommodating, attentive & professional. Our favorites: pizza (of course) is beyond nyc's highest standard, branzino is always fresh, steak is tender & juicy + wonderful grilled vegetables.

In warmer weather, the outdoor dining is amazing.

It's a great restaurant for a simple casual meal as well as an awesome gathering space for a group. We especially love how Francesca & Tamara will do whatever it takes to insure we have a wonderful dining experience.

I haven't been here in a couple months but what a change. Pizza was super cheesy. More like a Pizza Hut pizza than what Numero 28 used to make. I didn't recognize any of the servers or the guy making the pizza so maybe there has been a change.

Numero 28 at the UWS is my go-to Italian restaurant in this neighborhood. The food is authentic & everything is delicious (from the appetizers, the pizzas, pastas and of course, dessert) and speaking of their pizzas - I always enjoy watching the pizzaiolo (pizza maker) prepare my pizza which is usually the Pere or the Numero 28 (their best selling pizza I think). Everytime i have a friend in town, I always try to bring them here. The staff is nice and when i'm feeling lazy.. They're one call away for delivery. (Kudos to the delivery team!) Overall, 5 stars for this neighborhood gem.

Pleasant, casual neighborhood restaurant. Terrific rectangular pizzas with interesting toppings from small to large that make sharing easy and part of the experience. A mixed demographic of young professionals, families, older adults -- very welcoming. Have only had pizzas and salads but other menu items look interesting and a little more unusual than other similar places.

marvelous pizza, wood fired, rectangular, served on long paddles. Arugula and Prosciutto is grand. We were there with our adult kids--a warm gathering. Though we declined dessert they brought us some as a treat (it wasn't any special occasion). Lovely! Simple decor. fabulous pizza.
