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.
Fantastic restaurant. This was our first visit and we loved it! We were celebrating a family member’s birthday and it was the perfect spot. Menu is wide ranging - classic Italian dishes and daily specials. Food was excellent. Entrees are very generously sized. Waitstaff is professional and attentive. Enjoy.
The best service and best authentic Italian food! I’ve been coming here for years with my family and we have never had a bad meal here. The waiters make you feel like family. All around the best Italian restaurant there is!
Recommended by a steady customer, and did not disappoint. Our waiter Johnny was very knowledgeable about all the food . suggested a family style of appetizers since everything sounded so good. I had the lamb chops which were scrumptious, the linguini garlic and oil fantastic. Loved all the fresh garlic. My husband had the stuffed veal which was also delicious. For desert cappuccinos and peanut butter Moose cake and cannoli. We were celebrating our 45 wedding anniversary. We look forward to bringing our family back . Are you open Christmas Eve and his far in advance do u take reservations. Would love to spend our holiday with you.
Went early afternoon for less crowd, view amazing, can't wait to go back.
Always have an excellent experience here. My boyfriend has never been and Italian food is his favorite so I told him he had to try it. It exceeded his expectations, as I knew it would. Our server, Joseph, was an absolute doll. He was funny and seemed happy to be there. We started with the baked clams which were excellent. I ordered my usual, Chicken Seafood Cognac which was out of this world (and Joseph’s favorite dish), and my bf ordered something off the menu as Joseph invited him to do - Spaghetti with Meatballs (my bfs favorite all-time dish when going Italian). He demolished his plate. I tried the meatballs and I flipped over them as they remind me of my own homemade meatballs that my grandmother taught me to make. After we were done eating, Jospeh handed us dessert menus and told us not to order yet and to relax. Without us even looking at the menu he asked us if we liked peanut butter. We both started laughing and at the same time said YES. Joseph brought us over the most insanely delicious peanut butter pie ever. We devoured that as well. My bf hasn’t stopped talking about the meal and thanked me for introducing him. I’m extremely happy to say that we will be going there more often! Excellent food, excellent service and perfect atmosphere for that old school Italian feel.
Food is amazing and the service is impeccable. My family has been coming to this restaurant for years and we have never been disappointed. They will accommodate special orders as a matter of course and will bend over backwards to make sure you are satisfied. The only issue anyone might find is parking availability but at dinnertime you are able to park in the lot around the corner (on Meacham) since the stores there are closed by that time.
We were 6 after a day at Belmont last Sat evening. We were seated immediately for our 5:45 res in a roomy round banquette. Our drink orders promptly served with warm rolls & garlic bread. A complimentary salad was served before our entries. We all enjoyed our dinner. Wonderful service & a surprise ice cream dessert. The perfect end to a fun day!
Fabulous food. Fabulous service. Love king umbertos. Our go-to restaurant.
Great service and food. The best wine list in the area by far.
Another birthday celebration & the staff made us all feel special! Great food, great ambiance & great service!
Always Amazing food was fantastic service
Just like going to grandmas house, warm comfortable inviting and simply good food. What more could you ask for, the only thing missing is Nona
Always a wonderful dining experience at KU!!
Our family favorite restaurant!
I have been going to KU since the late 70's early 80's and ordered shrimp monachina everytime. This past time the shrimp was over breaded and the dish was not nearly as good. My brother, who has also been going to KU for many years said the same. We both will now hesitate to go back.
I hope this recipe change is not a permanent one.
Always a treat to dine at KU. We love this restaurant—food is fabulous and the staff attentive!
Lovely restaurant consistently good food
Parking tough and wait for service low but overall food and value high
King Umberto was outstanding as always with our favorite waiter, Joseph! It is always a wonderful restaurant to celebrate a birthday as they make you feel very special and serve a wonderful meal!
