The Real Umberto’s Of New Hyde Park Long Island

My actual first stop when I landed in Long Island was at Umberto’s of New Hyde Park.  When I lived in Long Island, this used to be my favorite place.  Their Sicilian is certainly one of my favorite slices of pizza.   This is the true original Umberto’s pizza, and not the phony Umberto’s of Long Island one located in Deerfield Beach.

I ordered 2 Sicilian slices and one regular.  The Sicilian was just as I remembered it.  Crispy on the outside, airy in the middle and one of the best sauces I have tasted on a pizza.  Their cheese is top notch, and the display of the pizza is equally as wonderful.  The regular slice is above average, but after having the Sicilian it was hard to compare.  Maybe I should have just tried the regular slice first.  In my humble opinion, I think this pizza mixes fantastically with grated cheese.  Not that the pizza itself doesn’t taste close to perfect without any help, but there is just something about the combination of their fresh grated cheese on this Sicilian that mixes perfectly.

Last time I was in Umberto’s of New Hyde Park, Umberto told me he was planning on opening a place in Boca Raton.  I will keep my fingers crossed that he finds a place, and doesn’t change a thing about his current recipe.  There is very no reason to ever wonder why Umberto’s became so successful.  Umberto’s uses the finest/freshest ingredients he can buy, and puts care into each and every pie he pulls out of the oven.  I am giving Umberto’s of New Hyde Park 7 out of 8 slices.

    I have lived on LONG ISLAND most of my 40+ years. These last 6 years my job has taken me to Connecticut. The pizza and chinese food up here ranks about the same level as dog food. The pizza here compared to UMBERTO's from New Hyde Park is like comparing tap water to fine wine. It doesn”t compare. I miss UMBERTO's pizza every day since I have been up here. My only happiness is when I go down to visit relatives and get to bring back my favorite foods from my youth, mainly UMBERTO's pizza. NO one can say ther isn't a better sicilian pizza made that is superior to the sicilian pizza UMBERTO makes. You have it once and you are hooked. It is the best! Bet on it……

    Lapp… the real Umberto’s is in NEW HYDE PARK… Umberto Corteo does not work in the Lake Grove location – in fact, it was sold to Sbarro’s years ago.

    Where are you getting your intel that it was sold to Sbarro? Oh right, You have no CLUE what you’re talking about. Thanks

    Actually, the deal with Sbarro’s fell through. However, Umberto Corteo does NOT own any of the “Umberto’s Of New Hyde Park” restaurants EXCEPT for the original “Umbertos” on Jericho Turnpike IN New Hyde Park. Where did I get THAT intel? From Mr. Corteo.

    It was not sold to Sbarro ever. Do you just make stuff up as you go? Umberto owns most of the Umberto’s on Long Island except for a select few that Sbarro owns and destroyed by selling their pizza

    Sat down for dinner of spaghetti and sausage, my wife wanted a grandmothers pizza, The pizza was overcooked, lacked cheese and spices, was hard like cardboard. My dinner had cut up slices of sausage overcooked and chewy. My wife had a stuffed artichoke, the heart of it was missing. The meal was a real disappointment, we will not be dining at this place again. No care was taken in preparing the food. The food may have been good at one time but it is lacking now. DD7
