What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.3

Da Umberto is a classic old-school Italian joint, but without some of the shtick found in other Little Italy joints.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Da Umberto is a classic and a favorite. They provide highly consistent, delicious Italian food and wine in a lovely dining room on 17th street. It's on the pricey side but it's a really nice, consistent quality experience. One of the good ones!

One of the best dining experiences I’ve had in a long time. There is a reason this place has been here for over 30 years. The Chicken Milanese was incredible as was everything else we had.

One of, if not our favorite in NYC! From atmosphere to cuisine to service, daUmberto is outstanding! Note - online wine menu isn’t accurate but current selection is just as outstanding.

Whenever our family visits NYC, we make a point of dining at Da Umberto.

The service is impeccable, the cuisine is positively delicious, and the ambiance is serene and conducive to visiting.

We've been visiting this neighborhood gem for many years and each time are as impressed as the first time.

Our family of 8 celebrated a milestone birthday dinner. We couldn't have chosen a more fabulous restaurant. The food was exquisite-truly authentic cuisine. From the appetizers to the amazing dinner each of us had I wouldn't be able to choose a 'favorite'! The service was outstanding and a special thanks to Eric for the attentive service, choosing our wine and making the evening so memorable! It was a very special evening and we'll always remember da Umberto!! Thank you!

Our experience at Da Umberto was, again, superb. Warm reception (probably our fifth or sixth supper at this restaurant over probably six or seven years -- hardly regulars!), perfectly paced and attentive, but never intrusive, impeccable service by several staff. excellent preparation of each of our courses, which included one daily special appetizer and one daily special entree, two standbys and a shared fresh fruit dessert with whipped cream that was the best ever. A perfect double espresso. Two best in class non-alcoholic cocktails for an abstinent couple in a festive mood. Could not possibly have been better.

The food was outstanding and the service excellent. This is a lovely restaurant with old world charm. When ordering specials, patrons should be aware that the cost can get very high. The experience is worth it, but this is not a place for a regular, not special night out, at least not for most people.

The sense arrival was great. They were expecting us. Seated quickly and the service was spot on. They even made a special meal for us that wasn’t on the menu as they had the ingredients. My wife and I both had it. The meals were all delicious as were the apps. Sufficnet wine list. We had an excellent bottle of Brunello. Thank you very much for the hospitality and delicious food.

Hadn’t been here for many years after having been a regular here many years ago. Not good as as I had remembered it. Nothing bad, but nothing great either. Very expensive . Too many other good Italian rest in nyc to make this my regular go to spot again.

It was good until we got the bill. we were talked into the antipasto appetizer for the table which was good however it was $150 for 4 people. Outrageous given there was no indication from waiter or menu it would be that expensive- $37.50pp- more than entrees. I thought it was just greedy and inappropriate

I had been to Da Umberto many years ago, and the food was much better.

Granted I went on a busy Friday night, but my food arrived at the table lukewarm -- even the espresso for dessert was lukewarm. I had the pasta appetizer special and the Dover sole, which were unremarkable.

The restaurant is pricey, and I expected more.

I think Da Umberto needs to step up their game.

excellent food, service, everything - I've been 3 times now and every time has been next-level. The "specials" menu is as long as the normal one and that's the key for ordering - the specials are out of this world delicious. The $ adds up quickly, but you never leave dissatisfied. Would recommend for special occasions.

Chic atmosphere and lovely food. Very good service. The rigatoni was a bit ordinary for the price $27 but the assorted vegetables, octopus and spaghetti vongole were very good. It was a bit noisy for such an elegant restaurant but very good for a splurge.

Thank goodness we have great friends that recommend great restaurants. Thanks to them we've been able to connect with da Umberto a few times and it's a special neighborhood gem. The food is fantastic, the ambiance is very nice and the service is impeccable. There's a good reason that this place has been around for so long.
