In 1976, King Umberto opened on the corner of Meacham Avenue and Hempstead Turnpike. The restaurant and kitchen were very small with the bar squeezed between the pizzeria and the dining room. As word got around how delicious our food was, we were always packed to the brim! So ten years later, we expanded King Umberto. In February 1987 the doors opened to a restaurant and pizzeria that could support all of our devoted patrons with ease.
