Decent Napolean Style Pizza
OMG there are so so so many new Pizza joints opening up in East Village and I really hesitate to give out 5 star rankings. 28 Pizzeria Napoletana has been open for quite a while and their Napolean style pizza is pretty good.
I like the decor of exposed brick, huge brick oven and hardwood tables. The menu is mostly pizza with a few pasta dishes. We ordered a cold cut of Meat & Cheese plate and a 29"" Diavola pizza to share among 3.
The meat and cheese plate was alright. I think the meat could be fresher and maybe the portion could be a little more too. The pizza was pretty big. It comes in a long capsule shape and it was thin and crispy on the crust. The flavor was good and the hot pepproni was flavorful.
I think for the price and atmosphere, Numero 28 is a good neighborhood pizza joint. It is not too heavy and it is freshly made. Service is friendly and people can have a good time here enjoying pizza and Italian wine. I personally think Veloce is better though.
