Welcome to Numero 28 - voted the "Best Pizza in New York" by Citysearch.com readers. We specialize in authentic Neapolitan pizza, baked hot and fast in a brick oven to achieve a not-too-thick, not-to-thin chewy, smoky crust made from a recipe that's been handed down through five generations of pizzaioli (pizza makers). Our one-of-a-kind dough is then stretched into an oblong shape, topped with the freshest ingredients available and sold al metro "by the meter" just like you would find in Italy. To further the authentic Neapolitan dining experience, Numero 28 provides a casual, welcoming atmosphere of heavy wooden tables and whirring ceiling fans. Our friendly staff welcomes both neighborhood regulars and visiting strangers like long-time friends. In addition to our pizza, Numero 28 offers classic Italian dishes such as lasagna, rigatoni alla Bolognese, eggplant parmigiana, homemade tiramisu, and an assortment of antipasti.

this place was just wonderful! I haven't enjoyed a meal like this in a long time. the staff was so friendly and so helpful. I absolutely loved them and this place. I will DEFINITELY be back. I actually can't wait to go back. I haven't eaten such beautiful and perfectly executed pasta dishes, burrata, pizza and shrimp is a long time. Thank you so much to the staff and the talented chefs for a beautiful evening. I will be recommending you to everyone i know. <3 <3 <3

The Numero 28 staff is outstanding!! They're so accommodating and willing to get you whatever you need. They will make you a pasta or pizza according to your whims and be very happy to do so. Their pizzas are amazing and you can tell they are done the right way. The decor is very Italian, from the brick walls to the paintings to the ornaments, everything kind of transports you away from New York City. They give you great portions of the meat and seafood, unlike other places that will give you only 3 pieces of shrimp in your pasta. The only thing I would like more off are non-alcoholic drink options, but other than that, everything is great.

The pizza wasn’t as good as it used to be .. they were even running out of a few of the main ingredients. And the waiter was only nice when he brought us the check ..

Nous étions 4, nous sommes arrivées à 2 (nos amis nous rejoignant par la suite), la serveuse ne nous a même pas demandé combien nous étions, elle a rapidement désigné une table et a "jeté" les cartes du menu dessus (et nous avions pourtant réservé, là aussi elle ne nous a rien demandé) ! Nous avons du attendre que madame se rende compte que nous étions toujours debout pour qu'elle revienne nous placer... Les pizzas sont délicieuses, dommage que le service et l'amabilité des serveurs n'en soit pas autant... A 22h30, alors que nous étions encore en train de manger nos pizza, le restaurant commencait déjà à fermer, la musique se coupe brutalement et on nous fait clairement comprendre qu'on gêne et qu'il faut partir ! Nous avons du commander nos dersserts alors que nous n'avions meme pas finit le plat principal... Le pire c'est qu'ensuite les serveurs se sont tous assis à une table pour manger tous ensemble, d'autres personnes les rejoignant, nous ignorant complêtement, je n'ai jamais connu ce genre de situation, c'était tellement genant !! Bref une fois pas deux

The service was terrible, unfriendly and never checked on our table despite us being one of two tables total in the restaurant. Orders came out at different times and we had to chase for the check.

I used to go here all the time... The service has been poor the last two times I went and the pizzas are definitely getting smaller and they are very expensive. Nice atmosphere but its not the only place in town. Sorry Numero.. its not where it's at anymore.

We were seated immediately but instead of putting us at an already made up table we were ushered to sit down at a table that needed to be wiped down and set up. Despite the restaurant being about half empty we waited a good while before the bartender came to take our order. We originally decided on one appetizer and a small pizza but were advised that couples usually get one appetizer, one salad, and a medium pie. Since we had salads for lunch, we decided to get calamari and a medium margarita pizza. The calamari was flavorless and even the side of spicy pink sauce didn't do it justice. The pizza was really good and despite being pricy it was worth it. We ended up with a third of the pizza uneaten. Probably won't return but overall a good dining experience.

Cash only, BYOB w/ $7 corkage fee per person, great outdoor seating when it is warm out! Love to go here with friends, bring a bunch of wine, and get lots of pizzas to share. Pizza is so good!! This is my favorite numero 28 location. I think it's larger and more lively than the others.

It was amazing! Just remember it's a cash bar and you can bring a bottle of wine but there is a $10 charce per person so it ended up being cheaper to buy a bottle there when I went with my two friends.

Very authentic Italian pizzeria/restaurant. They are famous for the thin crust pizza served in different size (Numero 28 and doc are the best) also pasta it's very very good (lasagna is outstanding) now they have Italian digestive (Montenegro, limoncello e sambuca). Desserts are very good too.
Solid spot
