Very good southern Italian food at reasonable prices. The portions are quite large and the food is fresh and well prepared. We ordered Chicken Scarpiella with a side of linguine with garlic and oil and it was enough for two to share. Lemony, garlicky and delicious. The veal parm was tender and fresh.

This is the BEST Italian restaurant I have ever been to, and that's saying something because I am Italian and a serious critic of Italian food that's not good. We were there for Father's Day and they just lifted the restrictions on 100% capacity last week, so it was a full house -- very nice to see -- and thus was a bit noisier than usual. The food of course was delicious. I had Shrimp Oreganata, Pasta e Fagioli; my husband had Veal Parmigiana and Minestrone soup; my son had pizza. Their pizza is THE best if you like a thin crispy crust and we buy it all the time from them. Go hungry!!

I love Umbertos. The only reason I have 4 stars is because I am partial to Umbertos is Massapequa Park. That’s where I go and eat most often.

Our experience at Umbertos in Wantagh from start to finish was exceptional. We were a table of 14 and Oscar handled it all with ease. He was prompt with taking our orders, prompt with refills and asked several times if there was anything we needed and if we were happy. We were. He was great and the food was delicious!!

We came with a large family group- very animated (noisy). We came based upon availability on open table and because I had known the name from New Hyde Park. We were given a table at the end of the restaurant which was welcome. The wait staff was wonderful - friendly and extremely patient. We had appetizers including baked clams, mozzarella sticks and my favorite-capellini bites. Delicious. I ordered the Pasta Amalfi calamari, shrimp, clams, mussels, garlic & oil, diced tomatoes in a white wine sauce.. Was enough for 2 meals. Most in our party ordered pasta. Everything was fantastic. We never felt rushed and were treated like gold. Would definitely go back .

We were a large group on Valentine's weekend (Saturday night) and this place was great. It was everyone's first time and we chose it because the location was central to where everyone lived. We weren't rushed, food was great and the best part was the price. We were 5 couples and everyone was surprised how reasonable the bill was. Would definitely go back again.

We go to Umbertos quite often and are never disappointed. The only disappointment we have is you can only make a reservation for 5 or more. It is usually just 2 of us. The specials are usually delicious. There is something for everyone.

Made a reservation for 8:45 on a Saturday night and was seated 5 minutes early. The food was served hot and was its usual good quality. However, we were a little disappointed in how long we waited for the main courses to arrive. Although I would continue to eat at Umbertos, I am upset that they charge, full price, to get a re-fill on soft drinks (fountain service)

My family and I, 11 people including 4 children, 2 in highchairs, recently dined at Umbertos. Our reservation was honored on time, the 2 highchairs I requested were promptly provided, and our waiter was courteous and efficient. The food was good, not great, but exactly what we were in the mood for. My veal rollatini was delicious and included a side of greasy but wonderful fried zucchini sticks. I also ordered a side of broccoli rabe ($3.00 extra) which was, unfortunately, overcooked and mushy. The rest of the food was similar, some really good, some not so much. The sorbets we had for dessert were great. My coconut sorbet was outstanding and the lemon was as well. All in all, a satisfying neighborhood experience.
