The fourth location for this Neapolitan-style pizza chain is the first with negronis and americanos, thanks to a full liquor license. Get traditional pies or more creative ones, like the signature round made with buffalo mozzarella, speck, truffle cream and mushrooms, along with salads or house-made pastas. Wheat-averse diners can also dig into gluten-free pizzas and pastas, which are available only at the Upper East Side outpost.

After reading so many rave reviews, we decided to book my friend's birthday dinner a week ahead at Numero 28. Once we arrived, the hostess said she would not seat us because we were missing one person from our 8 person party. We emphasized that this was a special birthday dinner and that our friend was very close by. After rolling her eyes she agreed to seat us. Once we sat down, she quite literally scolded the table and told us we only had 90 minutes to eat. I have never been given a time frame on when I was allowed to enjoy a meal I was paying for, let alone for a birthday celebration. If you have paying customers who make a reservation far in advance, it is incredibly disrespectful to assign them a time limit on their dining experience. My advise? If you don't have time for all of your parties...don't book them. The hostess is the reason this is a two star review. That being said! The food was very good and we loved the BYOB wine policy. The birthday song celebration that the staff puts on is an absolute blast. So, if you have tough skin and a big appetite, Numero 28 is for you!. 


Want real Neapolitan style pizza but don’t feel like leaving Manhattan? Get yourself over to Numero 28, where the pizza is cooked to perfection at lightning speed. Only the finest ingredients are used to create the various delicious pizzas to choose from. If you want to keep things simple, order the margherita pizza, which is anything but plain and boring. The diavola pizza is topped with lots of pepperoni for a spicier option. If you like thinking outside the box, get the pizza with buffalo mozzarella, pistachio cream, mortadella and pistachios. Try to save some room for dessert, because they’ve got a decadent Nutella pizza as well.
