Service was slow, but the food was very good. There was an event going on upstairs so I think that was where all the noise came from.

I was very upset how cold it was and that the waiter didn’t address the issue and raise the temp till we got dessert it felt like we were being pushed out. And even with a reservation I waited 40 mins to get a table and I arrived early people who had later reservations were seated before me I was very upset

My food was dry medallions of veal. Mashed potatoes were cold and asparagus was over done. My husband loved his very good. Cheesecake was dry. We loved this restaurant but they had an off night.

35 min wait even though we had reservations. Fish was so salty I couldn’t eat it. Pricier that most local venues. Sloppy clientele.

The place was beautiful, place was packed and a lil noisy downstairs really good service . Unfortunately the food wasn’t as good as I’ve heard about the place. It was basically just serviceable standard Italian fare which was priced reasonably but unremarkable

Ehh- very basic. House salad simple lettuce and tomato. My appetizer. My wife had it for Main with salmon. A couple of tiny pieces.

Since I had my kids with me had a large pie. Half buffalo chicken half peppers and mushrooms. On pepper/mush side- Sauce was very light and thin. No discernible flavor. Likewise thin layer of cheese - no flavor jumping out at me- all I got out of slice was crunch from crust and flavor of green pepper. Yelp and one bite rating of 8.2 to 8.6 way off. Disappointed. Cost of pie $33. Plus I traveled 20 minutes to get to place. Would not come back unless I had a gift cert.

We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Food and wine were delicious. Atmosphere was cozy and we weren’t rushed at all despite it being packed.

Service was very good and and friendly, The waiter made suggestions that were helpful and correct. The food was delicious with generous servings.
There was a last minute change in the reservation from 6 to 4, this was accepted with a smile and the table reset quickly.
We sat a long time talking and there was no indication that they wanted us to leave. All-in-all, a great meal.

UMBERTO'S IS THE GOLD STANDARD FOR PIZZA ON LONG ISLAND
DEFINATELY ORDER THE SICILIAN OR THE GRANDMA
THE RESTAURANT IS LIVELY AND USUALLY CROWDED - SO MAKE A RESERVATION
THEIR RED SAUCE IS THERE SIGNATURE

My wife had the pasta puttanesca and I had the penne ala vodka after starting off with a Sicilian slice and a Grandma slice.We split a side of meatballs as well. Everything was delicious and we left there stuffed and knowing we would be back here again. The service was attentive and friendly.

It is a wonderful local restaurant. The food is excellent and the waitstaff were attentive. They are a bit understaffed, but the working staff do the best they can under such pressure. It is not a restaurant to select if you want a QUIET dining experience. It would also be nice if the bread was heated. Cold garlic knots just don’t work.

My husband and I have been dining at Umberto's since our first date 7 years ago. The food is always on point, nice, big portions and very reasonably priced. It can be a bit noisy in the dining room at times, but other than that, Umberto's is the best!!!

The Sicilian pizza is a must. It's unmatched. This is my hometown pizzeria. I now live in Buffalo, but on a weekend trip to Manhattan I made my family take the train ride out to NHP to have the pizza. Proud to say my Buffalo born son has now been converted. You can't beat Umberto's!!!

In spite of having a reservation we, as well as several other groups waiting in the lobby, could not be seated since Umbertos allowed a large group to stay an hour over their time.

We were in NY for a family function and decided to stop in for a nice Italian meal. We weren't disappointed. The Margerhita pizza was perfect as was the Hot Antipasto and tortellini dish. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

90th birthday dinner for my grandfather. The staff was great, as soon as they overheard us say it was his birthday they arranged dessert and limoncello for the table! So nice! Food is always delicious. We love this place!
