Numero 28 Pizza

Ashley and I had a couple of overlapping trips - me to Curacao, her to Hong Kong/Manila and Savannah.  With all that exciting travel going on, we needed a dinner to catch each other up and decided to go to Numero 28 Pizzeria.  The brick oven pizza was nice and rustic - they didn't worry about getting a perfect circle and instead allowed the pizza to take on a squiggly rectangular shape.  We ordered the 18" San Daniele, which was topped with a super fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella, arugula, and prosciutto.  It was the perfect size for us to share (along with a bottle of wine, natch).  As much as I love good brick oven pizza, I'm usually disappointed when it comes to the table and see how they've been stingy with the toppings.  Sure, it looks pretty and minimalistic but - come on - mushrooms cost about $.2; give me more than five of them.  Anyway, my point is that Numero 28 was the opposite, even when you're talking about nicer ingredients like prosciutto.  Yes, the pizza was slightly more expensive than other brick oven places, but it's not like it broke the bank and it was worth it to leave the restaurant satisfied because I got more than crust.  Another highlight was the very attentive wait staff.  Perhaps it was just because it wasn't busy, but they were all over our table.  Almost but not quite to the point of getting annoying, but there's no such thing as being too nice. pic to share :(
