Ahhh, the gold standard. El Prez says you travel for anything in the 8’s, I moved from NY a few years ago, whenever I return, or when I bring work friends to NY, we head from JFK to NHP (New Hyde Park). This place is a landmark. Try getting in here for pizza during a Friday in Lent... Everything about Umberto’s is great, pizza, entrees, even desserts. After having Sicilian pizza here, it’s tough to compare anything else. I agree with Dave, regular is just above satisfactory, that’s the review...

Kinda disappointed in the plain slice... it was nothing to write home about. But Umberto’s is known for the Grandma slice and it was incredible. Like 9.3 incredible. Never had a better Grandma. I’ll go back and order three Grandmas every time. That good.

Bro.. I’m so disappointed. I get it, there’s a pandemic and we got hit with a hurricane, but this pizza is absolutely unacceptable from the ORIGINAL Umberto’s. This wasn’t the bootleg Umberto’s. This was supposed to be the best of the best. WELL IT WASN’T. Gross, burnt, flavorless, are a few words I would use to describe this monstrosity. Never again!!

Very good small slices and thin great cheese to sauce ratio. Slight crunch could have been a little more crunchy.

The Sicilian slice is top notch! Very saucy, and I’m not a fan of much sauce, but this sauce is perfect and really adds to the slice. The garlic knots are pretty cheap but not fantastic, I’d give them a 6.1.

One of the best square slices I’ve ever had in my life. Very delicious. Great sauce, good crust, solid cheese.

Beautiful crunchy crust, moderate layer of stringy mozzarella, good flavored sauce.

It’s a great go to pizza, can definitely eat it at least once a week.

Legit Sicilian, might be my favorite I’ve had. The margherita has a great crisp as well. Strong sauce.
