    The Best in Little Italy

    I passed this resturant once or twice a week and recently decided to check it out. I have tried about 10 or so other restuarant in Little Italy over the years. My experance there was nothing short of spectacular. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was awesome. Get the white clam sauce or the lasagna they were out of this world. Ive made Umbertos my new once a week place.

    Just don't go

    I wasn't expecting much based on what I had heard from friends, but this place was convenient on a rainy night so I thought I would give it a fair shot. Umberto's actually managed to fall short of my low expectations. The tomato sauce was bitter, the pasta was sticky, the shrimp was definitely not anything close to fresh, and my boyfriend's fried clams were pretty bad, but maybe not as bad as the frozen-from-a-bag french fries that came on the side. To top it off, it was very expensive. Most restaurants in Little Italy aren't spectacular, but this place is the worst I've been to on Mulberry Street.

    You will be disappointed.

    I have been going to Umberto's Clam House during the San Gennaro Festival for their clams for fifteen years but this is the first and last time I have dinner there. I ordered a dozen clams on a half shell but only got 11 and no lemon wedges. $16.50 for 6 medium sized shrimp cocktail. That's sixteen dollars and fifty scents for six medium sized shrimp! Linguine & clams, the noodles were stuck together, is better at Ray's Pizza. Fish & chips are better at Arthur Treacher's. We walked from Canal St. to Broome St. past all those other restaurants with portions twice the size. They told us they only use plastic cups outside for wine even though the people at the table across from us and behind us had wine glasses. Are we the only table with no bread? We had to find someone to get us some bread. Any other restaurant on Mulberry Street is much better for food and for service. Umberto's should not be anywhere near Little Italy.

    a lousy restaurant in "Little Italy"

    The management, and service are nasty! The food is ordinary and expensive! The restaurant looks like a cheap cafe! The air conditioner doesn't work!

    not recommended

    Do you like waiting an hour and fifteen minutes for your food in a restaurant that is completely empty? If so, drop everything and go to Umberto's Clam House. On the plus side, you have bread to occupy your belly while you wait for disappointing food. We had their house specials - fettucine alfredo and spaghetti with clams - and while the fettucine was fine, the spaghetti and clam's was not good. There was grains of sand on the clams - a real treat for the old teeth. I almost walked out before the food got there but then I ate and hated myself for not walking out.

    The food there is great. I had a lasgna and te the portion was huge, but it made about the best leftovers. It is pricey but totally worth it!

    my friends and i wanted italian in little italy and i'm so glad we picked this place! they're open til 1 am (on weekends at least) and the service is excellent. the food was very good, especially if you stick to the shellfish. my friends had alfredo, which was fine, but i had the mussels and linguine YUM! they have the whole open-air and sidewalk seating in the summer, so it's great for people watching. however, be prepared to spend a lot of moneythis place is definitely overpriced like most of its competitors in the area (the servings are pretty big, though).
