The service is always great. The octopus was tender but too salty, especially with the farro and caper salad, which was even saltier. The pasta was well cooked, but the rigatoni with sausage was also too salty and not balanced. The pasta with leeks and artichoke hearts was excellent. The veal scallopini was just ok. Lastly, the broccoli rabe was so stringy that we could not eat it. They immediately took it off the bill but it was overall somewhat disappointing. We enjoyed the wine very much.

Food and service was extraordinary. Only downfall was a slightly dismissive maitre’d who placed us in the least desirable location within the restaurant.

Everything else was so exceptional that this mild offense will not deter us from returning. Candidly this may be our newest favorite for Italian in NYC.

Chef and staff are remarkable!!

Went to NYC to visit our Granddaughter. As part of our visit, our granddaughter, who is a New Yorker, recommended da Umberto. Everything was outstanding. It is a quiet, intimate restaurant that is nicely appointed and very clean. Our food was exceptional- I had the rigatoni in a sausage ragu, my wife had the chicken parmigiana and my granddaughter had the pennette - highly recommend any of them. Presentation and taste were both exceptional. For dessert we had tiramisu and ricotta cheesecake. Service was professional, courteous and friendly. Everyone we interacted with that day - Fabian, Jeremy and Tyson - were exemplary. Kudos to them! Beautiful restaurant, exceptional food and outstanding service. We will be back.

I love da Umberto. The food is excellent. It's classic Italian food, but they just manage to make dishes you see on other menus better than they do. For example, everyone has tiramisu, and their version is better.
Don't be afraid of the high prices of some menu items. We shared a few pasta dishes as a an appetizer, and we all got fish or chicken, and loved our meal. Also had a excellent wine.
The service is charming, which I find a plus. I have used this over the years for special occasions, anniversaries, birthdays, and the high quality is always there.

One of the most memorable dining experiences ever! The special pasta was perhaps the best pasta dish I have ever tasted...even during tours of Italy. If it was appropriate to lick the plates I would have!

This old charmer has really stood the test of time.
Service was prompt and delicious food
I tried to move my reservation to 6:30-7:00 and was told I could not.
The restaurant was empty when we arrived at 6:00 and at 8:00 when we left only 3 tables were occupied.
I fail to see why we could not be accommodated.

The chicken capriciossa was too breaded and too cooked…. Should have had a healthy amount of arugula and tomatoes and olive oil….. Chef could have done better.
