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.

We did not get seated until 10:15 for our 9:30 reservation. Management did not try to accommodate us or compensate us for our extended wait time.

Cash only or else there’s a surge charge. Waiters know exactly how much food to order for the table - trust them

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!

Service was atrocious, we had an 8:00 PM Open Table reservation and they kept seating other parties while them claimed our table was getting ready. They were seating people who might have been regulars but it was hard to say as the place was loud, and the hostess had limited English skill Once we were seated it took twenty minutes for the waitress to appear, and then another twenty five minutes to get our appetizers, which were fried calamari, a rice ball and the meat ball. There after the two large pies we ordered (Large being two pizza's each feeding two people as we were a party of four) This took another half hour after our appetizers and when they arrived they were basically flavorless. Surprising because one was their "diavola" and the other was the Calabrese, and they should have both been flavorful given the ingredients. Unfortunately there were not, politely declined dessert and ran out as fast as we could to Venerio's around the corner for dessert. Very disappointed, not returning, so many better options in the area, starting with Joe and Pats on first Avenue and East 10th Street and Sauce down the block. Expected so much more from Numero 28 and it really disappointed.

We were overcharged and when trying to fix the issue, we were ignored by the waitress and other staff. It was very disappointing and frustrating.

Very nice (ambiance) place for this neighborhood. I was with kids (age 12-13) though and menu not as simple as it could be for a place serving pizzas. Pricey for what was served as well, but it was tasty. I would go here again with friends, but not with kids.

Excellent food. Terrific service. The pizza was outstanding! I highly recommend and would definitely go back. My only issue was that it is a CASH ONLY restaurant! That's fine, however there was no mention of this on Open Table (at least none that I saw) and I was not prepared for that. I had to leave my guests to go to the bank and withdraw money because I was paying the check. So, just come with plenty of cash and enjoy!

This the best pizza I have ever eaten. The wait staff is very friendly along with the bartender. I have also eaten their pasta and it is very good. We have been going to Numero 28 for years! Anyone I have ever brought there has loved the pizza.

My roommates and I went for dinner one night and brought 2 bottles of wine. with us for BYOB. The food was AMAZING and probably one of the best dinners we have had in a while in NYC. We keep raving about it and want to try the one on the UES as it is by our apartment. HUGE FANS LIKE HUGE!

Amazingly mediocre. Food did not arrive hot. Every drink and every dish arrived separately for a party of 6 where there were perhaps 2 other customers. Its most important feature: it is across the street from a good movie house.

Great service. Tasty food. Small venue and the air conditioner wasn’t too strong and with doors closed, it can get loud in there. It’s a cash only place which is inconvenient. But I think you can BYOB. It’s worth a visit overall.
