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.
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.
Excellent as always!! King Umberto has been a favorite of ours for many years!!
Usual quality service, quality well prepared tasty food.
kU never disappoints. Never go home hungry.
Never wonder where the waiter disappeared to and always have a full wine / water glass.
Excellent service and food
Always an enjoyable meal!
Our favorite Italian Restaurant.
Great service. Great food.
Once again, my friends and I had a most enjoyable meal, deliciously cooked, at King Umbert’s.
As always the best restaurant on Long Island. Food and service... fantastic!
Always great experience and excellent food! Grazie!😊
Food is consistently outrageous. Service impeccable. My family’s favorite for 40 years, and our annual birthday and Easter spot. Our waiter, Giovanni, gave us personalized attention despite the busy Easter rush. We stop by on a random weekday or rely on this restaurant for family events. Truly outstanding.
Service and food outstanding
As usual, King Umberto didn't disappoint! We went to celebrate a family birthday because the food here is authentic old school Italian & superb. Our waiter Donaldo was so kind & professional. A four star dining experience!
We went here to celebrate my sister's birthday on a Saturday night. Our table wasn't ready when we arrived, and we had to wait for the previous guests to clear out, which took longer than they expected. As soon as we sat down, a manager was at our table with a HUGE bottle of champagne and an apology! We were definitely pleasantly surprised. The service was great and the food was amazing. Will surely return!
I have been coming here since it opened in 1976, I lived a few blocks away. Now I live about 20 mins away and I still make sure to come back because the delicious food hasn’t changed and is a fond memory of my childhood.
Food and service were great as always! The menu is traditional, yet relevant and always well executed.
We are regulars and the food and service never disappoint. The shrimp monachina is the best I’ve ever had. And the baked clams are consistently delicious.
I have been to King Umberto many times. The food and service is always excellent and consistent.
Always a delicious meal. Prepared with the finest ingredients. Joseph our waiter is very attentive....amazingly he writes nothing down and always gets it just right.
Amazing Italian food in a cozy family-friendly environment.
Best Italian Food on Long Island.
The staff is extremely attentive and all food is prepared using the finest ingredients. Highly recommend.
Great as always!! Food and staff excellent!! Veal special was excellent.
First time trying this restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. Loved the atmosphere. We will be going back again in less than two weeks with friends.
The food doesn’t get any better than King Umbertos. From the taste to portions you won’t ever be disappointed. They accommodate any special food request you might have. And to any meal the best compliment of all is any pizza they showcase. Make sure you ask what the Jon special pizza of the day! Get a pie and take leftovers home ! Local neighborhood gem . Rosario and Cio are always there to greet you and make sure you meal is on point! No doubt, PEFRECTO!!!
