Popular local spot heavy with pizza options but also offers pasta dishes, salads, Italian specialty entrees, etc. We had mozz sticks (standard) and fresh homemade mozz with tomatoes and peppers app which was very good (would have liked balsamic vin with it...guess I should have asked...still very good). Rigatoni and Tomato sauce was one of our entrees with no complaints from picky pasta loving daughter. We had the grandma pizza which is just a square thinner crust pizza cooked in a Sicilian pizza pan. The pizza was perfectly cooked the pizza sauce AMAZING, the cheese and roni yummy. The crust was perfectly cooked but thought the flavor of the pizza dough was kind of on the bland side. Still the exceptional sauce and cheese made the pizza still very solid!

You simply can't go wrong eating here. Have one of the best pizzas and calzone on Long Island. There are no better appetizers and entrees, fresh and delicious. Our table had the linguine w/ white clam sauce, sausage with broccoli rabe, shrimp fra diavolo and veal rollatine. You can always have a favorite dish, but there are no best dishes - they are all superb. Be sure to make reservations.

I made rsvp outdoors . Was told I had to sit indoors. We waited 45 mins for a waiter to come over to take out order . I order fresh mozzarella and tomato for appetizer. It wasn’t fresh at all my meal was good but definitely not worth going back to . The owner didn’t seem to care

We were seated right away in the outdoor dining area and though it was busy we weren’t rushed and the noise level was very bearable. Our waiter Pasquale was great and easily answered any questions that we had about the menu.

We were seated in the side room with the plastic petitions separating the tables so the atmosphere wasn’t that nice. It is much nicer in the second floor or even the pizza dining area. I have been going there constantly for the past two months. Yesterday the portions were 1/3 smaller then they normally are. I asked the waiter if I ordered a half size by mistake he commented the owner is cutting back on the portions. A noticeable difference in just1 week. 👎🏻

It's one of my go-to restaurants, but this time a tad disappointing. The outdoor scene was bustling, but there were few tables occupied indoors. That resulted in almost no service. They're in the process of renovating, so I'm waiting to see the changes. Food is always good.

Love, love, love Umberto's of New Hyde Park. The bread, that is made there, is delicious. The house dressing for the salad is wonderful. Pick any entree on the menu; you cannot go wrong.
We were there on Mother's Day, so it was crowded (still spaced). We needed to sit downstairs because my mom could not do the stairs. Unfortunately, currently with the construction not complete, it was hard to hear ourselves talk.
Can't wait to see the place when it is done with the new expansion.

Everything was spicy! I asked if the sausage in the cavatelli was spicy and the waiter said no but he failed to mention that the brocolli rabe and the rest of the plate had so much spice I couldn't really eat it. My kids said their dishes of gnocchi were also very spicy and the calamari appetizer was rubbery. The bread was hard. I also order escarole and white beans and even that had so much hot pepper that I couldn't eat it and my husband thought it was also overly salty. The waiter was very nice but in general food and drinks took a really long time to come out. We had heard so many good things BUT we were very disappointed!!!

The food never disappoints! Our only complaint would be that we waited 30mins past our reservation to be seated and it took another 30mins to get a waiter to our table. We didn’t have any water, bread or anyone take a drink order. So that was disappointing. The staff was pleasant and apologetic.

Have eaten here many times, but this time was very disappointing. Service was very poor. It got to a point where we almost walked out. And after the poor quality of the dinner I wish we had. Very expensive for a weeknight dinner for 2. When we made the reservation they asked if it was a special occasion and it was a birthday dinner. No mention of it to us and no complimentary dessert or beverage. So why inquire?

There was a party in the back room at midday so the noise-level was pretty high. It detracted a bit from the enjoyment. We went or lunch so we did not explore the full menu. But everything we had was very good.

Very pleasant experience from the moment I walked in to meet my colleague at 12:30 with our reservation. I was seated in the party room and service was excellent. Server was attentive, very pleasant and friendly and did everything to ensure our lunch was exactly as ordered. My colleague ordered fried calamari and she said it was great, not rubbery and just perfect. I ordered eggplant rollatini and it was creamy and flavorful.
I recommend Umberto's of New Hyde Park and have eater here many times over the years for lunch and dinner and take out and its always consistently GOOD.
