I office had a small party of 8 dinner and the food was to die for!! 5 star!!
King Umberto is Best from having a drink at bar to having a great dinner and the service is great can’t wait till I go back
Okay, this will be my last time going to this place and I have been there at least 30 or 40 times in the past 4 yrs. I make reservations for every restaurant I dine at but this time it didn't matter to them. We were told that they would have a table for us in a few minutes, okay we waited. Then this couple walked in 10 minutes after us and were seated right away before us. I noticed that they were greeted by the staff after getting kissed by the workers. I have no patience for this kind of service. The tables are so close to each other that the staff and customers are always bumping into your table. I understand that they need to make as much money as possible but at who's expense? My husband ordered Pasta Fagoli which was watery no thickness to it at all. I ordered Tortellini which consisted of 8 pieces and plenty of broth. I ordered pasta with meat sauce and I got pasta without meat sauce. I ordered Eggplant parm to go for a neighbor of mine and when she opened it we noticed that it wasn't cooked at all. I asked for sauce on the side so that it didn't get soggy. We ordered Ice Tea and we received two glasses of colored water no hint of Tea at all. Umberto's of New Hyde Park has its own issues but not as bad as King Umberto's in Elmont.
Everything was fabulous from the Chardonnay to the mussels and shrimp parm to the tartuffo. Thanks king umbertos for another great meal. You never disappoint.
Love this place! Perfect for simple dining & fine dining
Had the clam sauce in white wine. the clams was very rubbery and difficult to digest. will not recommend the clams.
We went to King Umberto for my dad's birthday. The staff was attentive and polite. The food was great and we had a great time!
Took our parents with us. It was a delightful dinner. Great waiter.
Only thing I had put it was mine and my husbands anniversary and I noted it on opentable I thought restaurant would have acknowledged it. Quite disappointed.
The best Italian restaurant on Long Island. Consistently excellent
King Umberto‘s is the perfect place whether you’re going for a beautiful dinner with friends and family or a quick slice of pizza and a cup of soup you are treated like royalty. Either way you cannot go wrong, it’s the perfect place, it’s the only place ...try it!
The place was not crowded since it was rather late on a weeknight. The food was very good, except I was unable to finish mine due to a huge amount of salt. If made it impossible to truly enjoy. I had been so excited to finally eat there! We’ll try another time though. :)
First visit, impressed by the food and service. We lingered long and we’re never hurried. All of us enjoyed our entrees and the house Cabernet which was full bodied. Only pain is the parking lot is a block away we especially appreciated the low noise level and nice ambiance. I only give 5 starts to super outstanding never to be replicated restaurants, so it’s not at that level, but certainly an excellent choice for local Italian. Just the right amount of garlic, oil and nice sauces. Memorable for the food and appreciated not being rushed.
The best dinner. The best service. The best restaurant. Love king umbertos !!!
Amazing as always! The service and hospitality is one of a kind. Food is 1st class
Our waiter was so wonderful and so accommodating. The food was excellent. Everyone was happy with the experience and look forward to returning again when we are in that area of Nassau.
If you don’t celebrate your horse’s victory at King Umberto’s, what have you really won?
This restaurant has been around for as long as it has because it gives people what they want. Very good food with very good service. The prices are a little higher than you might find in other Italian restaurants but I am willing to pay them for what you get.
Favorite spot for meatballs
They went out of the way to accommodate our group of nine. We very much appreciated that.
The team their doesn’t doesn’t disappoint! Santos our waiter was amazing! We had one little hiccup with my meal however, Santos and the restaurant went above and betto make up for it which was very generous at best! Honestly I asked for nothing as it was salvageable and very easily remedied but this is not my first time dining here nor will it be my last and the staff went above and bettors make up for a minor inconvenience!
One of the best Long Island has to offer. Period
Amazing delicious birthday dinner!! Obviously will be back!
If you are looking for solid, go-to for a meal - this is the place. Don’t miss the fried capellini, stuffed veal chop and branzino. Service is attentive and always there to assist. The decor is a little dated but very much worth the trip. Prices are in proportion and the amount of food is more than most people can eat in one sitting!
Delicious, clean, food came fast. Good service , good management
This is by far the best Italian restaurant on L.I. (and it's very close to Queens). Also a must for horse racing fans. Only thing is if you're making a reservation on-line be specific about which room and/or call to confirm it.
King Umbertos offers stellar renditions of the Italian-American staples you might expect. The wine list is truly special, featuring thoughtful selections at all price points. The decor is somewhat old fashioned, but charming in its way, and the staff was extremely welcoming and helpful in navigating the menu.
If Nonna is no longer cooking, you can use KU as Nonna’s house and feel right at home!
Every time I come home to Elmont King Umbertos is always my favorite restaurant to go to, food is absolutely delicious & reasonable!
Always fantastic! The best on Long Island!!!!
The best food best service so inexpensive diamond in the rough
We always enjoy ourselves here. The food is outstanding, the wine list is really good and the service is excellent.
Guaranteed awesome meal everytime! We have been coming to this establishment for years. The food is top notch and service is always attentive even on a crowded Saturday evening. Nothing compares to this truly authentic Italian restaurant.
Although we had a reservation, we had to wait about 35 minutes. The hostess was very attentive and purchased us each a drink while we waited. The food is always excellent, and the crab cakes, pork chops and halibut special were no exception. Our waiter did leave a bit to be desired, as he was not very attentive. The place was quite busy that night with multiple parties.
A wonderful time and meal at King Umberto’s! The best restaurant on Long Island no doubt about that! Service is just as good as the food and the food is the best Italian meal on the island!
Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Parking was easy in lot across the street. Comfortable temperature in room on hot evening. Not cheap but reasonable.
