Italian
We are specialized 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). The meticulous selection of our products makes our creations unique every time. The Vesuvio’s tomato, the D.O.C. buffalo mozzarella from Battipaglia, the most fragrant basil, the unique extra virgin olive oil made in Italy.

Welcoming and accommodating staff. Terrific meals (pizza, pastas, salads) all around. Great spot before a show at the stadium.

I have been to the other locations in NYC and I believe that the large size pizza in the Manhattan locations are much larger than at Austin Street. This isn’t the first time I have noticed the size differences. The cheese isn’t as melted as it usually is as well.

Loved the dinner I had there with my family. We don’t usually go out much so it’s always special when we do, and the Numero 28 staff really made it great with the food and service. Has been one of my favorite places to eat anywhere for a while and it looks like its going to continue to be.

The service was excellent. Numero 28 was compliant with NYS Covid-19 restrictions (all wait staff, etc. were wearing masks, both indoors and out). And the food was excellent! I would definitely go back and will recommend this restaurant to my friends.

Sloooooooooooowest service I’ve ever had. 20+ minutes to get an order placed; two wrong salad deliveries and then the correct salad came after the pizza and pasta came out - there was no space on the table for it. The Cacio e pepe was oily and grainy. They need to improve their service.

Good food, good atmosphere, excellent service! The wait was not bad and the waiter was very accommodating and friendly. Only problem you might encounter on busy days is parking. Hard to find parking around the area. Loved the tiramisu, he made it right in front of us which made the kids happy lol it was cute. Highly recommend!

We had the XL pizza and had various toppings on it - the prosciutto and arugula is our favorite! We also shared a pasta dish and that was delicious too! By far the best surprise was the citrusy crime brûlée! Who knew?
Carl our server was excellent.

It’s so incredibly overpriced and the food is good but nothing is worth spending 57 on pizza for a family of 5.

Delicious brick oven pizzas, salads, entrees and more. Excellent service. Terrific jazz band on Thursday nights, just a little too loud for conversation. Overall a nice, casual neighborhood spot for Italian cuisine.

Fabulous grilled vegetables with two pieces of grilled chicken. My table was ready and we were
seated immediately. Good service. The only thing negative was the basketball game on the tv.

The heat wasn’t working so it was rather cold, with an exception of one or two floor heaters that were blowing in one direction. Don’t recommend getting the chicken parm, seemed like it was made a few days ago and simply reheated! The pizza, however, was very tasty.

Wonderful dinner with my girlfriends. The servers were friendly and the food came out hot and delicious. We ordered two different salads, pizzas, salmon, gnocchi, pasta and chicken. All were tasty and plentiful. Save room for the luscious tiramisu and Nutella mousse! Will definitely be back to try the cacio e pepi special for two!

Incredibly slow service. It took a long time for someone to take drink orders and even longer to get the drinks. The bruschetta was soggy. There were 4 of us: 2 ordered pasta & 2 ordered pizza. The two pasta dishes came with the wrong type of pasta. The two pizzas arrived so late that the people who ordered pasta were already finished. We ended up focusing on the disappointing experience rather than enjoying our time together. We will not go back.
