ZAGAT - 2013 Survey

Awesome pizza is the thing at this family of parlors known for sensational slices (like the grandma and Sicilian) that are worth traveling for, and sauce that reminds you of Sundays at nonna’s; the otherwise typical sit-down menu and long waits don’t faze fans.

ZAGAT - Past Surveys

This delicious throwback to old-fashioned, red-sauce Southern Italian pizzerias brings a slice of Brooklyn to New Hyde Park, pleasing fans with buon gusto grandma sicilian pies baked in the brick oven; the rest of the reliable menu offers home-grown flavor, but it’s the pizza that upholds the rep of this long-time favorite. The Original Umberto’s. Everyone is made to feel at home. Since 1965 pie-eyed slice lovers have driven hours out of the way to this New Hyde Park Southern Italian destination for the best Sicilian pizza anywhere (including Sicily) and new, funky versions that make you wish your stomach were a bottomless pit; the old-world cafe attached to the take-out parlour serves scrumptious and inexpensive comfort food.
