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.
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!
Professional service and food quality always great
Always love coming here. Food is fantastic and the service is outstanding!
Birthday celebration at the best Long Island restaurant!
We’ve been coming for years. Never disappointed. Always treated like “family”!!!
This is our favorite restaurant! It never disappoints
Loud restaurant where the service ignores you because you are a party of two compared to the larger groups dining. It also takes a long time to get your food... the service was bad but the food was good.
This was the first time my husband and I went here. My son and his girlfriend have been before. The food was very good, really enjoyed it. Our waiter was amazing. We went for my sons birthday on a Tuesday night, so it wasn’t super busy. Not sure about the weekends. My only con is the tables are really close together, so I did feel some people were on top of us. Too many tables for the space. Otherwise a really good place to eat.
Everything was perfect except parking
Parking is a nightmare at this place and they do not have a valet
Our server started plating appetizers without asking who ordered which appetizer (only 2 people ordered apps). It's not acceptable to take food back after it's on the plate!
3 of 4 entrees were spot on: prepared well and delicious. One entree was very heavy on the salt, not necessary at all
I didn’t tell the waiter we were there for my husband’s birthday because I wrote it in the reservation with open table. They either didn’t receive it or see it. That was disappointing. If you want something special, u must speak up.
The food is always solid, the service exceptional. They always deliver a tremendous experience from tip to tail.
Consistently excellent Italian food. Service was excellent even on a very busy Saturday night.
always good food and great service
always go after the Belmont Stakes
keep up the good work!
The food and service was great and even got a chance to watch the Belmont race from our table.
Great food and great service by our waiter, Marlo! Definitely will be back on our next trip to Belmont Park.
My father and I were visiting New York for the Belmont Stakes and we had heard about King Umberto. The only negative thing is that there’s no parking. We were parked across the street and in the middle of my meal, I had to go and move my vehicle because I was told that they would be towing vehicles from the lot where I was parked. The food was excellent including the rolls, salad, and the main meal. I had the Lasagna and my father had Angel Hair Pasta in a Salmon Sauce which had Salmon, Shrimp, and Scallops in it. I wish that we lived in the area because we would definitely return to King Umberto.
A superb dinner was had by all. And service was spectacular thanks to our waiter Elvin.
Love the food and the waiters are always courteous and willing to accommodate you with your eating wishes.
Best restaurant on Long Island... period!
Delicious as always
Always a great meal. Excellent service. And the bartender pours a good drink!
