MY FAVOURITE LOCAL RESTAURANT

Fist went here about six months ago and visit about twice a month ever since. Quality of food is consistently good, service friendly and efficient and reasonably priced.

This isn't a 'trendy' restaurant, in fact the decor is a little reminiscent of the 1980s, but the atmosphere and the welcome is warm and friendly and the food is delicious every time. The food is fresh and beautifully cooked with a wide choice of fish, meats, pasta etc.. This restaurant has a lovely authentic, homely feel and is widely... More

Been here for a number of years now and we keep going back. Food is of the highest quality and the taste is awesome. Always a warm and friendly welcome from Gina & Geno. I've been to restaurants in Chelsea and can honestly say I'd rather go to Umbertos every time.

Takes some beating, if at all. This family run restaurant at the end of the High St is so good for ta cozy Itallian meal. Make sure you check out the specials menu as well.

Went to Umberto's on the strength of the reviews but was thoroughly disappointed. The food was average and over priced. The service was extremely slow. Give it a skip

Food and service was not bad but everything was over priced. We paid £5.50 for a small bowl of fresh strawberries! Be careful the extras here will cost you!
