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.

I have been going to King Umberto for years and it's one of the best Italian restaurants on Long Island. The food is excellent, the service is impeccable, and the ambiance is perfect. I have never had a bad experience here.

By far the greatest Italian restaurant in NY. Food and service is from another planet. We brought friends for the first time and they are still talking about the experience.

We had a wonderful dining experience at King Umberto! The food was excellent, along with a warm and inviting atmosphere. There is a flare of old school charm which is rare to find these days! We were very impressed with the wait staff, who guided us with our food selections and really catered to us as VIPs.

I definitely liked the atmosphere and tasty food. I thought the service was a little slow as we were in a "time frame" to catch a show. I told the waitor that but had to ask again to order and dessert took longer than I'd like. Also, I asked for a vodka sauce on my side of linguini and was told there would be an extra charge which I said OK. I thought it may be like $3 but $9 extra. They didn't even itemize it on the bill and I had to inquire to which they shrugged and said yes, sorry.

I always love going to King Umberto's. The food is consistently delicious and the service is wonderful. You never feel rushed and always feel catered too. It is old world Italian and they will make your meal to suit your dietary need.

The rack of veal chops was fatty and there wasn’t a substantial amount of meat on them. The sauce was delicious as well as the broccoli rabe and potatoes. The appetizers were delish...fried zucchini and fried capellini.

Old World atmosphere, gracious maitriD' . Restaurant was crowded for a Thursday Evening and they only had one wonderful waiter attending to all . He was assisted by competent bus boys.
It was perfect for a one time visit as we've tasted better food at similar restaurants .
