The servers were prompt, polite and very attentive. We were celebrating a college graduation and it was really a special experience. It was our first dining experience at King Umberto and we will definitely be returning. We sat in the "indoor" seating area which was very elegant. There is a "patio" area as well. This area is very trendy and pretty-high ceilings, flower walls, crystals,etc. Both areas are lovely.

New feature is they have a limited area for parking which is nice since it can be difficult to park over there. The chicken/shrimp special was delicious. They were able to add "Congratulations" to a dessert which made our evening special.

Food got cold instantly and no apologies from the wait staff. Being a busy Mothers' day the emphasis was on seating teh larger groups, so my small group was made to feel insignificant. As for the food, well the Chicken scarpariello was a big plate of buffalo sauce and dry chicken. Will not be wasting my time nor money at this restaurant.

We went for a early dinner and only four other people in the outside dinner area. The music was so loud I couldn’t hear the people at my table speaking. I asked our waiter to lower it three times. He finally did. The waiter’s assistant kept taking away the plates before we had finished the food on the plate. I do not understand why the owners do not take a few minutes to train the help.

It was very tender with a the right amount of cheese and sauce and also a good size portion. My wife also loved her caesar salad. The staff were all very attentive and pleasant. The outdoor dining space was beautiful and very spacious which was not what you would expect from looking at it from the outside. overall, we had a terrific dining experience.

I left specific information on our reservation and he followed them perfectly. I wanted to pay for the table so I left a message to give me the bill and it all worked out. Very happy with our meals and John. Seriously he was approachable, made sure we had everything we needed. This was our first time there dining in the outdoor patio and it was amazing!!! The staff from the moment we walked in was perfection and so was the food.

Delicious food and very good to excellent service never disappoints! In fact, I think I’m so spoiled by their usual “beyond ordinary” service, that I’ve become overly critical! As always, I feel like family when I’m there and I will remain a loyal diner.

I enjoy the specials, you can’t find any where else. I took my husband out for Valentine’s Day , he love the veal and chickenFrances’s. I had the special short rib ragu with cavatelli so delishious! The seafood salad is the best anywhere and so fresh, and with arugula. Drinks are not watered down , so careful with the martini! I like the little lemon sorbet they give mid dinner to cleanse the palate. The house salad is perfect for me as I don’t like commercial dressing or salty food, only vinegar oil and onion , excellent. And if you have room for desert tartufo Limoncello , light refreshing ! You can’t go wrong with anything , enjoy!
