About King Umberto Restaurant
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.

King Umberto Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
A definite standout among the many Italian restaurants in the area. Besides outstanding food and service, everyone makes you feel special and right at home. Great for families but also cozy enough in one of their booths for a romantic dinner for two. Once you have experienced King Umberto's guaranteed you will return.
The food portions were huge, but not cooked very well. The fish was very over cooked and compensated with too much butter. All the pasta dishes were drowning in sauce with over cooked pasta. The tiramisu was dried out and gritty. We were there late - maybe the better cooks had left?
Fantastic! Love the food, the waiters and the chefs. My favorite place in NY especially when we are racing horses at Belmont. My kids favorite pizza in the world (and they are pizza snobs). My wife, a vegetarian, loves the fish and pasta dishes, and we both enjoy the spectacular wine list.
One of my favorite Italian restaurants. They have the best calamari marinara on the planet. I have never had a bad dish yet. they also have seasonal plates like zuchini flowers etc. Excellent friendly service. You cant go wrong here.
Best' Red-Sauce' Italian restaurant in the world!
Comfortable booths - great for meeting with friends.
Food outstanding - Beware: Fried Capellini apps are so good, you are liable to fill up on the whole portion - SHARE them.
Fish dishes generous, well made, with just enough flavorful sauce. Perfect choice.
Chefs should come here to learn how to properly make Eggplant Parmigiana.
Service friendly and efficient.
Just wish it were closer to home.
Been here many times and the food is remarkable each time. Family owned restaurant with appreciation for their customers. Wait staff is great especially Joe. He is so personable and makes you feel great about your food choice :) Cant go wrong. I come from an italian family, so its hard find italian restaurants I enjoy. Umbertos cooking feels authentic and homey. Amazingggg!!!!
Open table actually created grief for my party.
It allowed me to select an 8pm reservation but it was confirmed as 8:15pm.
If 8pm wasn't available, you shouldn't have allowed me to select it and you certainly should have clearly indicated it was no longer available if that was the case.
