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.

    The waitress was extremely rude and as someone who's come here for many years since college, I'm really disappointed. My friend offered to pay for my dinner and then the waitress swiped my credit card that was on the table anyway entirely out of spite (judging from how poorly I was treated at the door and when taking my order). Genuinely one of the oddest experiences of my life. Food is great though!

    Amazing for my friends birthday party. It was fun and lively. It definitely gets louder as the night goes on, so definitely not a good place if you want an intimate meal. But amazing food and really nice people working there who were very accommodating. Will be coming back!

    Made a reservation yet when we arrived they said they couldn’t seat us because they were fully booked. I suggest calling instead of making a reservation on here since it seems they do not update their availability. Have had the food in the past though and it is very good.

    We enjoyed this restaurant! We were a group of 8 including some children. We had delicious thin crust pizzas, pastas, and a chicken dish, too. The lava cake is a great choice for dessert. We were celebrating two birthdays and the staff was terrific. They brought the desserts out with sparkly candles that delighted everyone, and the played a lively happy birthday song, too. Speaking of music, it was a bit loud, but also really good and fun to listen and chair dance to. The decor is warm and interesting; I especially liked the tables made of very thick wood. The entire experience exceeded our expectations. This is a nice place to get together with friends and celebrate...well, anything!

    Great lunch at Numero 28 East Village. My salad was delicious. And the vegan pizza with kale and mushrooms was just amazing. I finished with the chocolate cake, which was also excellent. The service was terrific and the prices most reasonable. Wonderful dining choice in the East Village.

    I have been here many times but not in the past year. Overall I give them high marks. This time I had 2 minor issues. I didn’t think the pizza was as hot as it should have been when delivered the table. It was warm, not hot. My 2nd issue was re the music being played. I like jazz but felt everything about this place is Italian and the music should have been too! But don’t let this stop you from an enjoyable meal!

    Came here for dinner on 2/1 (yes the day after a nor’easter hit Manhattan, I know) and had a great time. They have small heaters on the ground standing and three attached to the ceiling of a concealed “patio.” Pretty warm considering it was freezing outside. Pizza was still amazing as usual, we had half capricciosa and half reginelle. They’ve added liquor to their bar and recently started taking credit cards. This is one of my top two (the other is Kestè) pizza places in the city. Happy to support them!

    They should make it very clear that there is a mandatory prix fixe menu if you BYOB and only the $45 or $60 options are available fridays and Saturday’s. We ended up spending ore than expected but overall a good experience. The prosciutto pizza was amazing!

    The manager was the rudest person. We had reservation for 7:00 pm and arrived at 6:36 , early. It was virtually empty. She examined her reservation list and saw my name and asked to see my phone for confirmation. Unfriendly and outright nasty. The three other people I was with didn’t even want to stay. She finally agreed to let us sit down at a table and then said we had to get up by 8:00. Seriously? You punish people for coming to your restaurant and act nasty and then tell them you have to leave your pizza place by 8:00? There are so many restaurants. Do you need to go to one where they are not gracious and happy to have you??

    I organized dinner for 8 people after work. We arrived at different times and I was delighted we weren’t told to wait until the entire party had arrived. That was just the start of a super dining experience. They accommodated one friend that was gluten-free while the rest of us devoured their signature thin crust pizza paired with a nice bottle of Italian wine. Highly recommended!
