Numero 28 is an Italian restaurant located at 1431 First Avenue (between East 74th Street and East 75th Street), on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, in New York City.[2]

It opened in February 2012.[3][4] Luigi Porceddu is the general manager and a partner, and Rolando Biamonte is a co-owner and founder.[1][5]


The menu includes round and square Neapolitan-style red and white pizza in three sizes, gluten-free pies, and a trattoria menu of antipasti, parmigiana di melanzane, bruschetta, salads, gnocchi, traditional house-made pastas, negronis, and americanos.[3][5][6][7][8] The chef is Ramon Duran, who worked for 40 years at the now-closed Gino’s near Bloomingdales.[3][4][5]


The cozy, warm, candle-lit restaurant has exposed-brick walls, rustic wooden tables, and a wood-burning pizza oven.[3][4][5]


In 2013, Zagats gave it a food rating of 24, and described its rectangular pizza pies as "perfectly crisp–crusted from wood-fired brick ovens".[2]
