Absolutely make a booking before going as it fills very quickly, the food is great and the wine list is very extensive with a selection from all over Italy. A lot of history to the place with photos of the origins of the restaurant all over the walls which are intewresting to look at.

Great service, good Neapolitan food, nice atmosphere. Divided into pizzeria and restaurant area. Ask for a wine list - you will get an iPad with their wine app, it is rather helpful. Reservation is a good idea - place was full of locals already in 1 hour after opening in the evening.

One of our favorite restaurant in Naples. We came to dine at the restaurant twice the time we spent in Naples. This was the only dinner restaurant we have dined twice in, but that is because Umberto is super delicious and opened whenever we are hungry (we were dining at American times and not Italian times). The restaurant is typically... More

Dear Erin, thanks for your review and your words about Umberto. Honestly, I'm so glad that you liked all the food you had, and Grandma's meatballs is one of our must. The secret is the quality of ingredients but I think that also the soul of customer plays a very important role... When you open your heart and enjoy the... More

Food itself was lovely, and generously portioned. We would recommend the couscous as a starter. When we arrived, we were told it would take 20 minutes for a table (it seemed very busy). Pretty much exactly 20 minutes later, we were seated. The service was very rapid and seemed a bit rushed, for example the way bills, glasses and food... More

This 100 year old restaurant suffers from over bright lights at night that make you feel you are dining in someone's old aunt's kitchen with florescent lights glaring in your eyes, making you want to make a quick exit. In general, this is average food from an average restaurant that may have been good in it's day. That day has... More

Dear Customer, thanks for your review. Of course, you didn't pay attention to know more about our family and how we carry on the restaurant. We never, never ride on laurels, and probably only someone coming from overseas could think that. Your attention was focused on the lights (Florescent???what does it mean?? We have simple lights), that most people love,... More

This place is too good to be average, but not sufficient to be very good. The reason is that the dishes served varied quite a lot in quality. The first starter, aubergine, was quite good, and the shrimps that followed were also good, but then some tomato and croquettes were of lower quality. We also got pizza, but again, just... More

We were a group of people having dinner here. That is 4 different pizzas. This should be a special place for pizza, but we only got very average quality. The place has been visited by a lot of famous people.

I lived and studied Turin for two years as a student. A student budget only extended to one pizza in a restaurant per week so pasta was our staple fair. However, my flatmates were all Italian so one thing I learned was authentic pasta dishes. We enjoyed five different dishes today and all were exceptionally good - in fact they... More

From the four dishes we ordered only one of the starters was exceptional (the octopus) whilst the other three (squid as a a starter and two pasta dishes) were decent but not not exciting. Portions are of a good size and prices fair.

Dear Bauolino, thanks for your review. Overrated compared with what? The customers and the market give us the rate, and I respect your opinion, but don't agree, as we serve thousands of customers, we speak with them, and most of them say something different. Anyway I'm afraid that you weren't completely satisfayied, and I hope to see you again to... More

The history of our restaurant began in 1916 when Ermelinda and Umberto Di Porzio opened a little trattoria, known to most as "Don Umberto". Our menù is rich and varied with its main section built on traditional Neapolitan recipes. Seasonal variations are made throughout the year, our traditional Neapolitan pizza menu and the exquisite family atmosphere all form part of the 'Umberto' identity. During the year we offer a variety of degustation menus to accompany cultural events and local festivals, revising classical Partenopean recipes with an often contemporary twist. We dedicate several areas of our restaurant to Neapolitan and foreign artists with a bi-monthly change. We organise food and wine courses with highly respected organisations such as Slow food, The Authentic Neapolitan pizza and Sommelier Association. Above all we endeavor to continue to care for customers with the dedication expected from a family with over a century of experience in welcoming, recommending and delivering dishes according to the Partenopean tradition.
