Italian
King Umberto had brought the delicious taste of Italy to the corner of Hempstead Turnpike and Meacham Avenue since 1976. We offer a welcoming elegant decor with superior service, perfect for any large group or parties of two. In addition to having a warm atmosphere we carry an extensive wine list, that consists of over 350 wines, with years vertical, and is recognized by Wine Spectator Magazine with an award of excellence in 2010. When it comes to our large selection of generous mouth watering appetizers and main courses we know how to please. Famous for the original Fried Capellini® and daily specials prepared by executive chefs Pietro Fuschetto and Giovanni Lombardi. Our menu is classic Italian cuisine with a worldly influence and will surely leave you satisfied, but you can't seem to leave without indulging in our homemade desserts.

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!

First time eating in the outdoor patio which is very large so even though it was busy for a weeknight I didn’t feel uncomfortable. The food is always excellent

Arrived at a quiet time so the Patio area was spacious and quiet.

Super friendly service and all staff ready to complement each other’s efforts.

Bread outstanding…old world crisp and fresh.

Cocktails fine but small.

Gratis light oil and balsamic vinegar salad.

Shrimp Monachina superb, even the side potato puffs.

Veal rollatini good but a bit chewy, side order of spaghetti good.

Affogato delightful. Espresso w a splash of sambucca.

Cloth napkins and tablecloth, disposable menus, hand sanitizer on table…impressed.

We shall return as they have so much to explore on their menu!

Was not expecting the food to be so great with such a huge expansion of the dining room outside. Service was fine and dinner was outstanding. Especially liked that the wait staff served everyone the appetizers individually. Nice touch.

It was great fun for the Eurocup Soccer final Italy vs England. They were extremely accommodating to our party - adding seats, and so on. Food was delish especially the metro pizza! The patio room was extremely nice - very large but inviting.

Waiter was terrible. Very slow service he kept forgetting about our table. Drinks were amazing! Food came out and the waiter messed up my order completely. I ordered grilled shrimp and broccoli rabe he brought out chicken pallard and everyone at the table ate and he never brought out my correct dish. Very disappointed!

Very very noisy. We felt like we were in a catering hall. Dinner took 3 hours. Baked clams were tiny. Nothing we ate was outstanding. Many large parties. Our table of 6 was kind of ignored

We love King Umberto’s and chose it to celebrate our anniversary. Wait staff always on point, food superb, ambience is lovely. We chose to eat outside which is beautifully decorated for any event. First class, casual.
