“Decent place, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

Not the best pizza. Garlic bread was pretty good, but not outstanding and the ambiance was dark, a tad grungy, and kind of sticky looking. But the server, Josh, was outstanding. The young guy dealt with 8 of us gracefully, was able to crack jokes with us, and keep our orders straight, the different ways we'd shared plates. And he was able to split the final check for us despite the complication of 8 different checks and many shared orders. Thumbs up. I'd take groups here just to not have to deal with someone who can't handle groups.

“An oasis after a long day of Interstate travel and close to hotels and other amenities.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Over the past 9 years, my family and I have stayed in Winchester 3 times, while traveling home, to Canada, from Florida. We made our discovery of Umberto's in 2004, after an exhaustive 14hr leg of our trip toward home. The food was fantastic, the service was great, the menu offered a wide choice, the value was remarkable and the atmosphere was warm. Nothing has changed. We will continue to make a visit to Umberto's a priority on our returns home, from the south.

“Great Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Food was great, location, well, not so great. In a noisy hallway of an old strip mall, across from a gym. Diners are shielded with fake ? trees.

“One of the best pizzas in town - good food all around.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Go for the pizza - since what makes for a good or even great pizza is highly debatable and often a personal choice, I won't claim it is the best in Winchester, but it is very good, with a crisp crust that yields to become chewy, a good sauce with it's own flavor and well blended toppings. The atmosphere is a bit odd, as many have noted, with the indoor outdoor seating in the mall entrance way, and wines are average for a pizza place, but we have not had a bad meal. The pasta we have had ranges from good to very good, with good salads and antipasto.

Take time to drop in at Gabriel Brothers at the other end of the strip (the inside of the small mall is a second-run movie theater and gym) and rummage through the seconds and overruns of clothing and shoes to find a $50 gem selling for $5-10.
