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.

It was a birthday dinner. Earlier they sent me a coupon for a complimentary bottle of wine. It was Chianti Classico not bar wine. I ordered a small cake and got a big one and it was complimentary as well. I was overwhelmed by their generosity and dinner was delicious.

Went again for a date night with my gorgeous girlfriend and as usual it was phenomenal. The outdoor dining area is gorgeous and can’t wait to see the expansion when it’s all finished. I had chicken rollatini and it was incredible. My girlfriend loved her shrim- parm as always, the mussels were perfect the wine was so good we had 2 bottles. As always we’ll be back. Loved everything about it.

We loved the fried capellini and the eggplant rollatini. Our waiter John was very helpful and we enjoyed a nice bottle of red from their extensive wine list. We will definitely return.

The only negative I found at King Umberto's was that it was noisy. I think it is just the acoustics. Other than that, everything was excellent, from the service to the food. If you go here for dinner, you must have their fried capellini appetizer - you will not be disappointed. Service was beyond excellent - our waiter was very attentive.

I highly recommend King Umberto's!!
