Solid pizza here.

Don’t let the name fool you. It’s a fine pizza but not New York. If you’re craving then yes it’ll get the job done but don’t go out of your way

So... we are very familiar with Umberto’s in New Hyde Park, Long Island. This restaurant is comparable, pizza cooked well, excellent crust, no flop, a lot of tradition. We didn’t try the Sicilian, which is the mainstay of the N.Y. Umberto’s (watch Dave’s review). This Umberto’s is solid. That’s the review.

Ok, so I’ll start by saying that I’m a hard core fan of The Original Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana on Wooster St in New Haven, CT. Their white whole clam pie with bacon and garlic is pure awesomeness. Their plain tomato pie is excellent as well. Thus, the bar was set high. That being said, Umberto’s cheese pie is a good pie. It’s not greasy, it’s easy to hold a slice without it dropping, and the sauce is not bitter. I was hoping for a bit more flavor. There could have been a little more saltiness in the cheese. The pizza is thin crust and the crust is crunchy, which I like. What I also miss is the coal fired , blackened semolina flour underside that one gets with a Pepe’s Pizza. I’ve lived in Florida since 2004 and have yet to find any pizza that comes close to Pepe’s. Thus, whenever we travel back to CT to visit my family, we’ll always include a visit to the Original Pepe’s in New Haven.

Locally this place is a 9. It’s up there with the joints in NY. Nationally it’s a 7.6. Best pizza in the area.

Great pizza! Crust was done all the way through and delicious, nice and crispy. Good flop too. Sauce was good but hardly any on pizza. Ingredients tasted quality. 7.8 is a review

This is good pizza, minimal flop, very little grease, cheese is great quality with a nice saltiness to it, the sauce is very flavorful and tangy, crust is thin and bendable and chewy. It’s like a better quality Papa Gino’s from back home in New England. This is good stuff, solid, great quality ingredients.
