King Umberto Restaurant
Service and food are top notch. The one thing that bothered me is that, due to some confusion in our party, we overpaid the tip (twice due to poor communications within our party). The host knew what happened but should have clarified with us that two tips were left. I know he knew what happened. To me this is a bit unethical and crass. Although it was our mistake, it resulted in us overpaying the total bill/tip by $100.
Always a great time!! The food, service and staff are outstanding. Would highly recommend!!
Amazing as always!!!
Dining at King Umbertos is always a delightful experience. The staff is warm and welcoming and accommodating.
We are always hesitant trying new Italian restaurants, but we were very pleasantly surprised. I can say we were extremely nervous walking in(went into pizza place first.) The food and service here were amazing. My teen son and daughter had classics chicken and eggplant parm. They both thought they were amazing. My mother and I had an eggplant ravioli special that was unique and absolutely delicious. My children are already making plans to return.
Always outstanding food and service! The waitstaff is A++++, would highly recommend this restaurant.
Always an excellent meal. Finest quality ingredients. Ciro, Rosario and staff are the best!
Once again I would love to see more flexibility in the rating system, I would have given 4 1/2 stars for service & food. Fantastic Italian wine list, you can find pretty much whatever your looking for in price and selection.
Great old school Italian restaurant. Our waiter was awesome, never rushed us and was very helpful. A little crowded and noisy but don't let that stop you. Definitely going back!
Amazing staff and food! My wife & I celebrated our wedding anniversary and we are never disappointed when we dine at King Umberto’s
Spectacular in every way. Very consistent place, very special.
King Umberto’s NEVER disappoints! It has been one of my families favorite restaurants since we moved to Nassau Co. in 1980.
Eating here for over 10 years. Consistency in all aspects. Nothing more to say except excellent
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.
