    Awesome

    You guys are crazy. Umberto's is awesome. Why dont you guys stop getting sausage and peppers from a clam house and get something you should be getting like fried calamari. Also, i guarantee you will never find better baked clams in the world.

    Bleugh

    Okay, I hate to burst anyone's bubble, but Umberto's was a disappointment. Our meal amounted to about $100 for the three of us (without drinks) and consisted of tiny, hard bruschetta, a pretty good Caesar salad, very oily and basic sausage and peppers, bland pre-frozen lobster ravioli, and what they called "Zuppa di Pesce" (with strangely-textured seafood and a questionably fishy sauce). I'm not sure why people claim Umberto's to be so great, or what had happened to its supposed former glory. To all you nay-sayers out there, please put out some specific dishes you might think are worth salvaging or trying from this place and maybe I might reconsider... as it stands I'm unimpressed.

    Where's the fresh fish?

    I went back three times but only found each time how poor the food really was. They've joined the carnival that has infiltrated this new "Little Italy" and the subpar food that's being served. The "fresh" soft shell crabs were anything but fresh and when I saw them deep fry them frozen, I was actually told they're frozen at sea so that's fresh! The sauce was consistently overcooked and burnt. The pasta was mushy and starchy. The bread was chintzy and when we asked for additional bread, the waiter became annoyed and mentioned that he would have to charge us extra. Umberto's, in fact, -Little Italy - is a disappointment.

    Nothing compares

    I have been dining here for years and nothing has changed. I would think that after a while the service, food, etc would get worse but, it just gets better every time I go there. The waiters are great, the food is excellent and the price is just right. I've been to other places in Little Italy and nothing compares to Umbertos.

    Resting on their laurels

    Umberto's is one of those places that will always be popular because of people saying it's great but haven't been there lately. I've been twice and both times the seafood dishes I ordered were HORRIBLE and WAY overpriced for what was delivered. The fish and shrimp is overcooked until it's more like jerky than seafood. The service is very friendly yet unapologetic when there are slip-ups. The atmosphere is open and upbeat. They should get a new chef and make a grand comeback with a better menu before it becomes a little Italy dinosaur.

    La Dolce Vita...

    Umberto's is truly a unique restaurant. It's history dates back many decades. It has served stars, senators (not Roman), ex-presidents and ex-heads of the NY crime families. It has unique food in that it serves fantastic pasta dishes/sauses; wonderful calamari and scungilli; and other fine assorted maion courses. The waiters are usually very friendly, fast and courtious. The neighborhood setting---in the heart of Little Italy----can't be beat. It doesn't get top honors (in terms of stars' ratings) because you're not going to get the best italian food in NYC----and, here's the news----you're not going to find ANY of the best true italian food AT ANY restaurant in the Little Italy area. True New Yorkers have known this for years. You have to go a bit north to, say, the Village to find really good italian restaurants. But Umberto's is good. So give it a try if you're in the area and stay away from those other high-priced tourist traps on Mulberry and Mott Streets. The food at those places is real bad.
