I don't live in NY anymore, but everytime I come back, I make it a point to have dinner at King Umberto's at least once.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMALWAYS A FAVORITETHIS IS MY "GO TO" PLACE. I HAVE BEEN ENJOYING THE FOOD & EXCELLENT SERVICE HERE FOR MANY YEARS. THE BEST IS THE FRIED CAPELLINI AS AN APPETIZER.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceWent with a party of 10, thank goodness we made reservations. It was packed on a Saturday night but I understand why; the food was great.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat old school red sauceGreat old school red sauce Italian restaurant. We had not been here in about 5 years, but were treated like old friends when we returned. Terrific wait staff - real pro's.
Food is way above average. Highlights: fried zucchini app crispy, delicious, and not greasy or salty. Deep fried cappelinni and cheese app sounds weird, but is fantastic - a MUST ORDER app. Next time I'm here, I'll order a double portion for the main - it's that good. Fish mains were fresh and not drowning in sauce.
The crowd is locals who have been coming here since they were kids, and Belmont Park folks who either work at the track or had a good day at the track.
Great place, only wish it were closer to home.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was wonderful again, lovedIt was wonderful again, loved the specials! We brought our friends and they loved it too...4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great food, nice decor,Always great food, nice decor, and great service. Once you have gone a few times, the waiters( Joseph + SAntos are the best), the bartender - Jerry, and manager will greet you like you're having family dinner an grand-ma !!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMItaly Comes to ElmontFrom the moment we walked in we were treated as special guests. The service was outstanding & each of the dishes that were ordered were outstanding as well. I felt as though as I back in Italy, it would be very hard to choose whose antipasti was better & the same goes for the main course. Eggplant cooked to perfection, Chicken Scaparelli with just the right amount of heat, pasta aldenti, what more can I say. This was a great neighborhood find & we will be back.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food and fantastic,Delicious food and fantastic, attentive service. Our only problem was the chill produced each time a customer opened the front door.
The owner should consider adding a heater in the vestibule. The room closest to the entrance is drafty. Everything else is terrific.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is very good andThe food is very good and the specials are innovative for a neighborhood Italian restaurant.
