Numero 28 Pizzeria Napoletana

Thursdays...sooo close to the weekend which makes me too lazy to cook!  Ok ok I'll take any excuse to eat out, but I'm always on the look-out for low key dinner spots for Thursdays.

I recently scoped out Numero 28 Pizzeria Napoletana - they have a couple locations in the city including Soho and the West Village.  There's also one a couple blocks away from me in the East Village and it's just the spot for an easy dinner!  They are cash only though so make sure stop by the ATM before heading to Numero 28.

I love the atmosphere inside.  Exposed brick walls lined with simple chandeliers perfectly complement the low hum of lively conversations by your fellow diners.  The brick oven in the back just begs for you to order pizza!  And I loved that the table next to us AND behind us ordered in Italian.  That may not be a guaranteed experience for you should you decide to stop by, but it def made me feel like I was back in Europe!

To start off our dinner, my dining compadre and I shared the Prosciutto and Fresh Mozzarella.  This was a pretty large portion - look how much came with the order!  The prosciutto was on the thicker side so not really a favorite of mine, but my dining compadre enjoyed it.  The mozzarella tasted great though and paired well with the prosciutto.

And for our pizza, we ordered the Numero28 with buffalo mozzarella, speck, truffle cream, and mushrooms.  The pizza here comes in three sizes: 14'', 18'', and 29''.  Of course my greedy tummy demanded the 18'' pie.  The menu indicates that the 18'' is good for 2-3 people and I was up for the challenge!

When this bad boy came out, I had to eat my words!  While the 14'' pie comes out round, the 18'' and 29'' come out long/oval shaped.  And the 18'' also comes out BIG.  But the pizza was tasty and I loved the touch of truffle on the pizza.  While we weren't able to finish it all, I definitely enjoyed it for breakfast the next day.  If you're looking for a low key pizza spot, give Numero 28 a go!  And don't forget to bring cash.  Enjoy!
