General Info
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.

Wonderful pizza

Absolutely delicious and very satisfying thin crust pizza. Tried the gorgonzola and pear 18-inch, and it was the perfect blend of sweet and salty and crunchy from the crust. Also had lovely red wine and white wine sangria with a savory salad with pine nuts and artichoke. Just make sure to hit up the ATM first because this place is CASH ONLY. Definitely coming back here.

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.
