I was hanging out and drinking socially in the Greeenwich Village area on a beautiful Sunday @ Greenwich Village Bistro. As I was talking to the bartender (Brian) and owner (Carla) at Greenwich Village Bistro about my experiences with pizza in NY that were disappointing, they highly recommended No. 28. I explained that I was very picky and a restaurant critic but they insisted that this was the real deal...gourmet and first class pizza. They practically demanded that I go and try it so my friend and I changed our mind since they were so passionate about this restaurant by deciding not to go to a ""famous"" steakhouse. \r
When we walked into the restaurant, we were promptly greeting by the staff and the server got to our table to take a drink order within a minute after sitting down, she was very friendly (This was the first time this has happened in NY. Normally, we have to wait 7-12 minutes after sitting...average 10 minutes to be greeted by the server.) and outstanding SERVICE. She guided my friend through their decision but I immediately saw a pizza pie (Rustica) that I could not wait for it to touch my sensitive and picky palate. \r
The pizzas were delivered and WOW..""AMAZING, EXCELLENT, OUTSTANDING."" The pizzas had a light, thin and deliciously crispy crust along with fresh toppings (roasted bell peppers, sausage, basil, pepperoni and etc..) and the mouth watering burst of flavor from the tomato sauce mixed with the Buffalo Mozzarella imported from Italy...melted in my mouth but also music to my mouth. I was absolutely speechless that we had stumbled upon this ""Outstanding Restaurant."" The prices were very reasonable especially considering the quality of the premium products on their ""Pies of Heaven."" \r
I cannot say this enough..If you love pizza, this will be your home away from home. The food is honestly the best. I cannot stop thinking about the pizza pies (# 1 Pizza along with outstanding service in NY. ""Momma Mia""\r
Pros: Pizza, Food, Service, Friendly Staff, Price for Quality and Portion, Ambience
Cons: Really no Cons when the food is this great....just get there and taste the magic!!
