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.

    We have been coming here since they opened and have had many family events and gatherings here. We are never disappointed by the food and the service, which is consistently excellent. Tonight we were here to celebrate a birthday. Their veal dishes are the best I’ve ever had. Two of us had veal… spectacular. Two in our party ordered from the ‘specials’ menu, the pork chop and the halibut… both said they were truly special. The birthday guest of honor ordered clam sauce over fusilli pasta… it is her go-to dish here and it did not disappoint. We completed our meal with wine from their extensive wine list, and homemade dessert and specialty coffee. If I could give six stars I would.

    Our waiter for the second year in a row for my birthday club dinner, Elvin, was absolutely a pleasure and made dinner enjoyable. The food, drinks & desert were amazing! Always love going to King Umbertos. Oh, can’t forget the fried cappellinis! They’re literally heaven in your mouth! Always highly recommend king Umbertos’s for all occasions

    As always King Umberto does not disappoint. The veal chop was perfectly cooked and the monk fish special was delicious. Began with the baked clams which are always so good and ended with the espresso martini. The service is always impeccable. This is my favorite place to eat.

    It was my wife’s birthday. Food was cold. Not cooked thoroughly. Long wait and seating area was terrible. Unable to take nice pictures without capturing sinks..plates.. prep area. Waited 3 months to dine there and was a total disappointment. Will never return. Not worth the wait or money.

    Afternoon lunch with friends was a treat. I've been solely having take-out dinner from here, so this was a refreshing change of pace. Prompt and courteous service throughout. Covered and heated outdoor patio is well equipped for today's precautions as a return to dining out. I hope to return within the next few weeks.

    As usual the food is very good. The pumpkin chestnut soup has a very nice flavor but too much cream. The portions are not the same as in the past, they are about half the size, however the prices have remained the same. Value for your money "Expensive" especially for lunch.

    Family of four celebrating my son-in-law‘s birthday on a Sunday early afternoon at 4:30. Unfortunately we were seated close to the back party room where throughout the one and a half hours we were there we heard high pitch screaming of children running around and or crying which didn’t make our stay very pleasant. The food was very good and the service was absolutely outstanding. If we ever decide to go back we will definitely make sure to ask to be seated far away from the party room .
