great place my family loved it....................
Always enjoy my time at King Umberto .. the food is delicious and a fav of mine is fried capellini .
The service is excellent and very attentive .. Ashley was our waitress and she was excellent .
You are always greeted warmly upon arrival!
We have always enjoyed KU, without question, but this time was an exception, I hope. We waited 45 minutes for a drink order and then another 20 for an appetizer order. It took almost 2 hours to get our entree. The waiter was very nice and told us they were short staffed but everyone else around us who came after us, received their meals before us. And we were a smaller group! Also, my husband’s stuffed veal chop was stuffed with nothing and was cold by the time he got it. He had been looking so forward to that as no one else makes that stuffed veal chop like KU does! The waiters were hustling and everyone was very courteous, but maybe you should’ve expanded your kitchen when you expanded your dining room.
It was my first time there. Pleasantly surprised at how much my family enjoyed everything!
Great food, great atmosphere, great service and stunning decor.
We ate in the outdoor dinning space and really enjoyed our meal there. The food and service is outstanding. One of my favorite restaurants.
The food was excellent and the service was excellent
Great food, great service
Always great food! Always great service! Always great to come to King Umberto's!
Food was phenomenal. Lasagna egg rolls appetizer was delicious and very creative. Our entrees were excellent.
Love the outdoor space and the food is fabulous!! Definitely recommend!!
It was great. The wait staff was amazing and efficient!!! The food is fantastic. Can not wait to go again.
Have been here many times. Service this time was poor. Waited over an hour and a half for our dinner. Waiter was courteous and apologetic. This is al management issue. Kitchen couldn’t handle to reservations. Very disappointed.
We love king umbertos
I’ve celebrated every birthday and milestone here since they opened in 1976. Perfect for a Tuesday night dinner or a bigger celebration. Food is consistent and serf is impeccable. There is no other like it
Delicious food as always! The outside dining is just beautiful! You felt as if you were on vacation!
The food was delicious but service poor. It’s not like they were understaffed . Had to keep asking for water and food took forever. My husband ordered a beer an it came after appetizer and he was never asked if he wanted another. We didn’t even wait for dessert because we knew it wouldn’t come for another half hour. We would come back but never on a Saturday night. We will give the restaurant one more chance.
Waiters are the best! Food is delicious!
Just fabulous !!! We all loved it completely
Will certainly go again and again
As always, an excellent dining experience! Thank you for always providing excellent service and the most delicious food.
Wonderful outdoor patio. Food and service was excellent! They could use more bathrooms for that size restaurant.
I drive down from CT every other week to visit and hang with my mom, who has Alzheimer’s. With every visit I seek out a new dining experience. I must say we will definitely be back! Not only was the food outstanding, the team was exceptional. Having visited Italy I did feel like I was transported to the level of attentiveness and care you received when dining. We were not rushed through our - what seemed to be 6 course lunch; the team even brought us out small salads as a courtesy to help pace us for the next course. We were both delightfully stuffed☺️
We liked the restaurant so much we returned the next day
We sat in the outside patio, which is shaded and very Covid-save. The food was terrific (the limoncello dessert was the BEST) and the service stellar.
We liked it so much we went back 2 days later.
The service & food was excellent as Always!
The decor was beautiful
We started out the afternoon with a bad experience, having nothing to do with King Umberto's at all, however on our way home, we stopped at King Umberto because I knew it was a short distance off the Cross Island Parkway. On a rainy night, we walked into a lovely dining room with tables mostly happily celebrating special occasions. Our last minute reservation had us in their outdoor seating area, however we were graciously seated at the remaining clean and empty table in the dining room. It was getting late, so we opted just for drinks and a main course, although one of the special appetizers really caught my eye. For wine, we noticed a very reasonably priced, for what it was, bottle of a California blend, as a half bottle. They had a bit of trouble getting the cork out, so the maitre d took out the remaining bottle of that particular wine. The cork did come out, the wine was fine, however the maitre d also served us the remaining bottle, no charge. What we did not know, is that they serve a salad with each entree, and it was quite delicious for a house salad. I ordered the halibut almondine special with risotto, which was delicious. A tangy lemon flavored sauce, and the risotto was not what many restaurants do, and serve you rice under the guise of risotto, it was real risotto. My husband ordered the double pork shop special. He expected a double cut pork chop. It was 2 separate pork chops, in a delicious sauce. Big enough that he took one home. There is no question that we will return to this wonderful restaurant. We certainly have a lot of Italian restaurants that are closer to home, but this is worth the short distance extra for someplace that made us feel so wonderful.
Wonderful as always!!!!👍👍👍
Always good food and services. A gem on Long Island.
The outdoor seating area is outstanding . Tables are well spaced and the floral arrangements and seating around fire pits are lovely.
Food was, as always, excellent.
Service was okay.
New outdoor facility is nice. Only one bathroom which is difficult but they are installing two more in the future. Food is good. Service was a little slow but it was ok. Enjoy dining there.
Both the food and service were phenomenal. The fried capellini is a must! The servers and owner were attentive and pleasant throughout our meal. There are also plenty of dining areas to choose from: inside, outside, and a pizzeria setting. Overall a great meal and experience. Highly recommend!
I love the ambience, and the food is excellent.
Great food, great atmosphere, great service and friendliest staff. Love the outdoor space
Great service, beautiful atmosphere and delicious food. Felt spacious and never felt rushed. Thank you for a great experience. Will definitely be back.
