King Umberto Restaurant
The service provided by Santos was spectacular
Food is always prepared perfectly from pasta to grilled meat or fish. Service is the best and the specials are always seasonal and different. Never a disappointment, always a great meal and good time.
A family-run gem in Elmont, New York...perfect spot after a day at Belmont Park!
Every trip we take to Belmont Park, we book a reservation at King Umberto. The fried capellini appetizer is out of this world, must get!! I had the cavatelli with braised short rib for my dinner - it was delicious and I have enough for leftovers which was a bonus!!
There are not enough stars to give this restaurant ... King Umbertos is by far the best restaurant on Long Island! Hands-down! To start off with the cappellini and then have chicken franchise with potato croquettes is unbelievable! The service is always the best and the owner Rosario keeps King Umbertos the best restaurant on the island.
Execellent food execelent service! Never had anything bad to eat. Very friendly. Would eat there every night if I could. Large selection of food, if its not on the menu they will make it.
Food was good but pricey. Extensive wine list but prices were not reasonable for a large group where we needed multiple bottles of wine.
Delicious upscale and authentic Italian food, in a fine but friendly "business-casual" atmosphere. The quality of the food, yet at reasonable prices, are extra-ordinary for a neighborhood location. Great for veal or seafood dishes. Excellent wines at reasonable prices. A long time favorite.
Loved our server! the food is totally amazing. My second time here and everything is amazing
Make sure you have reservations or it will be a long wait. We had reservations, but had to fight the long line in order to get the hostess desk, and then had to wait for our table to be ready. The service was fair, and it took almost 15 minutes to have someone come over to ask if we wanted something to drink. There was no wine/cocktail menu offered, so had to ask what was available. Menus were offered after we had the drinks were brought to the table, it was not pointed out that there were specials. From the time we ordered to the time the food came out was over 30 minutes. It was busy night but there was no communication between us and the wait staff, the food just came out. The wait staff did not ask if we liked the food, but did ask if we wanted more to drink. The food was excellent( duck meat balls and short rib ragu) and great value( would go back to try other dishes).
A Father’s Day or any day favorite! Best food and wait staff on the island.
Never had a bad meal in all the times I have gone with family. Everyone is very nice and accommodating.
this restaurant always rocks, the food is great and the waiters are plenty and very attentive!
If you love horse racing and Italian food you have to visit.
Hopefully JOE Will never retire the the best ! PS all the staff is Great .
The service and food was excellent. King Umbertos is always consist never lets me down. If you have never eaten at Umbertos I highly recommend it.
They took the best street corner of Italy and dropped it in Elmont!!
Excellent as always. We are always greeted like family there. Just a very wonderful restaurant for a special occasion or just a night out. We love going there!
It was my son and daughter in law’s birthday and just mentioned it to them and at the end of the meal they came and sang happy birthday to the two of them with 2 pieces of ice cream cake. The service was good and the waiter was fantastic. The food was also fantastic, we all enjoyed our meal. I’m very happy it is in our neighborhood and can’t wait to go back. I’m sure all the waiters are good but I would like to have our waiter again.
King Umberto’s never disappoints us. We had a lovely dinner with friends on Saturday. They let us take our time and it made us feel very welcomed. I love this restaurant!
Our party of 4 had amazing time at King Umberto! As always the meal was fantastic! Two people in the party traveled all the way from Pearl River New York and enjoyed everything. The service was as always attentive and personable. The best!!!!
We love King Umberto - everything from the service, atmosphere, and of course the excellent food! Highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for old school atmosphere with fine Italian cuisine !
Waited over 30 mins to get seated. Food was excellent and service while initially slow, was great. Will return but not on a weekend.
I have been coming to King Umberto for years. The food is always excellent. The service is wonderful. It's Italian but very different. The bread is wonderful. Good wine list and great desserts. Enjoy.
Went here for my birthday dinner with a friend. I got a choice of a free bottle of house red, white or Korbel champagne. I took the red, which was from California and very good. For my appetizer I had the beet salad, which was delicious even if I had to search for the beets! was expecting more since it was supposed to be the star. For the entrees we both had the apricot glazed pork chops with potatoes and carrots. The pork was cooked perfectly and the glaze was just right, not too sweet. The potatoes and carrots were a little underdone, but edible. For dessert we had cappucino's and shared the pistachio cream puffs (Not sure of the name) which were good, not great. They comped us the desserts which was very nice and the service was impeccable! Love it here.
Never disappointed, this is probably the most consistent restaurant I've ever been to. The staff knows how much time we like to take and does so seamlessly. Never rushed and never waiting we have been coming here for over 20 years and have never had a bad experience. The food is outstanding and the wine list is both extensive and priced fairly, many restaurants on Long Island could learn from them. Can't wait for my next visit.
Excellent as always. King Umberto never disappoints
Always amazing. By far my favorite restaurant!
Amazing. The food was wonderful and the service was even better. Thanks for a fantastic evening!
Excellent food, excellent service, always great
After getting excited about the reviews I decided to try it and was disappointed all around. It is a noisy busy place even though we did get a booth as requested on Opentable. We ordered a Caesar salad with light dressing but it came with no dressing. The stuffed sole special that evening was tasteless and it was really very mushy, could not distinguish the fish at all. It also came with too much sauce. Other people in the restaurant seemed happy and pleased and maybe we did not order the "right" thing but I have no desire to go back. Also the service was rushed and the waiter seemed inexperienced.
Large group with children were in dining room. Noise level was horrible and children allowed to scream and run around. Made it difficult to hear anything. Food was generally good but chicken scarp was disappointing.Used an odd red sauce and chicken was overcooked. They previously served country style so I did not think I had to specifically request it.
Santos is the best! We eat there all the time. Rosario has an amazing restaurant. Always feels like family. Ciro and John go out of their way to provide the best dining experiences.
Went early since we had an event to attend elsewhere- Service was great and food was as good as ever. Much quieter early
Perfect from start to finish!!!
I gave this place 4 stars because I felt that it had too many 5 star ratings. This is one of the top rated restaurants in all of open tabke so I had a very very high expectation of it. Don t get me wrong, the food was very good but I have eaten in other places that were truly out of this world but this place wasn't one of them. At the end of the day the food here will not disappoint so go there and enjoy!
Amazing as always.
