Description

Let me start by saying one of my favorite pizza places back home was Umberto’s Pizza of New Hyde Park.  They had several location and I used to frequent the one in Huntington on Jericho Turnpike, the one where they owners son Guy used to work.  The Sicilian was PHENOMENAL and was always consistent!  When I moved to Florida I used to crave this pizza and the second I would land out in Long Island I would go and grab a slice there.

The bottom of the crust was crispy, the sauce tasted amazing and the cheese, oh that cheese was delicious.  The owner of Umberto’s had brothers who seem not to talk to each other and some came down to Florida and opened up Umberto’s of Long Island as if to fool the people from Long Island living down here that they were one in the same.  This is not the case.

As you can tell by these photos, the sign on the left says Best Pizza and has Umberto’s of New Hyde Park listed as the winner!  Umbertos of Long Island (right photo) is a different place all together and should not display this proud victory on their pizza display unit like it is theirs.  It is ultimately deceiving and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing this.

The pizza at this Umberto’s location was nothing like the original Umberto’s in Long Island.  Nothing about it even remotely reminded me of the original, unbelievable taste of the places in Long Island.  Hopefully the original brother in New York will see this article and call his brother and comm and him to take this sign down and stop taking credit for something he had nothing to do with.  I will give Umberto’s of Long Island Pizza in Deerfield beach 3 out of 8 slices and hope that they stop trying to bamboozle unsuspecting New Yorkers into thinking they are something they’re not.

    Wow! For a minute there I thought I wouldn’t have to go all the way up to Long Island to get some of the wondrous pizza made by the Umberto Restaurants. My personal favorite is the King Umbertos in Elmont (Best pizza I’ve ever eaten), but the Umbertos you mentioned isn’t bad either.

    Here’s my last visit to the King if you’re unfamiliar:

    Although the pizza you showed here doesn’t look quite as good, I’m still going to try it. It looks better than a lot of the pizza we have here up in the Orlando area…

    It's just plain hard to make good pizza outside of New York. I've tried the Umberto's in Florida as well as other places down there and you have to admit…. It's as good as it gets in Florida.

  • […] I’m a huge fan of the various Umberto’s Pizza Restaurants up on Long Island (although my last visit was disappointing). About a year ago, I was driving through Deerfield Beach, FL and spotted a place called Umberto’s of Long Island. I really wanted to give the place a try based on the name alone, but I had already eaten for the night. Fast forward a bit, and I am in Deerfield Beach once again, and this time I know exactly where I was going to get pizza regardless of their previous Worstpizza.com Review. […]

    Actually the Umberto’s of L.I. is actually all the same owner it’s two people who own it. There is a location in Pompano off of Atlantic BLVD and Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale off of Commercial and Bayview DR, Boca Raton 441 and South of Palmetto Park RD as well as the above mentioned which is A1A and Hillsboro BLVD in Deerfield Beach.
