My wife and I have been residents of LBTS for over 20 years now. We are a part of a large "Italian" family that lives in the area. We all agree that Umberto's on Commercial has consistently maintained a high level of Italian cuisine. HOWEVER,...especially in this world of Covid, what makes Umberto's special is that they have maintained the wonderful staff throughout these troubled times. We know that when we enter the restaurant, we will be warmly greeted by Cindy. She performs her job as hostess with professionalism and warmth and makes every customer feel special. This is not always easy with often demanding customers. The other staff member that deserves recognition is Olga who has been serving us for more years than we care to remember. When we sit at the table we feel like we've come home, receiving a sincere and welcoming greeting.. There are many good Italian restaurants in the area, but what keeps us coming back to Umberto's on Commercial is the dedicated employees that make your restaurant special to our family.

Looking for a good home style meal and this place delivers in spades. Old school tripe, well cooked meat then sautéed with fresh tomatoes, basil, onion and garlic. I can’t rave about this dish enough. Tender, luscious, bite sized morsels of fat free protein enrobed...in such a fresh tasting gravy served screaming hot!! Naughty chef! I had slow down to enjoy it properly. Sexy. The Seafood Feast was next with various shellfish, cephalopods, and crustaceans. The pasta al-dente just enough spice to make every seafood laden forkful another experience in pleasure. DID I MENTION THIS WAS A MONDAY AND THE SEAFOOD WAS FANTASTIC!! Nothing was overcooked or undercooked! Perfect control of fire. I highly recommend you go there and ask for Mario. All great Italian should be served by a handsome man named Mario!!!More

Umbertos on Commercial Boulevard (they have several pizza places elsewhere in Pompano) remodeled their restaurant several years ago. It is a beautiful place to relax. When you enter the restaurant, there is a pizza counter and then a bar where some people choose to eat...and drink. It is the other large room you enter that is so pretty now with hanging planters and brick walls. Tables are not close together which is nice. It is pictured above. The food is very good. They have two eggplant dishes that make us swoon. The menu is pretty extensive. I often get a pasta with meatballs as they are delicious and gigantic (enough to take back to the resort). Their side salads are very good - we always get the creamy Italian dressing which we love but their house dressing is also good. Instead of dessert, I usually get a decaf cappuccino - yes - you know a good restaurant when you can get a decaf cappuccino. I love them but can't handle caffeine. They put a little piece of biscotti in it. They are very good. I'm always happy when I'm at Umbertos. It ranks high up on our restaurant scale in this area. It's a lovely place to have a good time with friends. Very relaxing.More

So… here we go… ( & apparently I’m a douche bag!!! & have been permanently banned) We’ve been using Umberto’s on line take out menu for at least 10 years. Tonight, we used the same on line menu to order dinner. The Umbertos roasted wing...appetizer, which we ordered, was listed at $12. When I asked about the price of the final bill , I was told the price of wings had gone up to $18. I replied I understood but that wasn’t reflected in the on line menus. I was told they could take wings off the bill to which I replied I wanted the wings but that they should update the online menu. After asking for a manager to speak to, the two individuals running the to go window said they were the managers, told me they were refunding my money & to never come back. I was called a “Douche Bag” for questioning them.More

We went on a Saturday evening for dinner with a party of eight. The waiter was aloof and not very attentive. We were seated outside in the covered area and it was quite warm. He only brought us 1 small carafe of water for 8...people and we had to keep asking for more water. The food was okay but it’s pizza so it’s hard to mess that up. We also ordered a chicken calzone and it was literally a pizza that was folded in half - the chicken was overdone and didn’t taste very good. The saving grace to the restaurant was the live entertainment. There was a singer who clearly spoke and sang in Italian and we thoroughly enjoyed dancing to the music.More

I am very sad and incredibly disappointed in Umberto's of New Hyde park located on east commercial Blvd in Fort Lauderdale. I am a long time fan and customer of the family owned restaurants for over 40 years. Originally from New York I frequently eat...at the original restaurant in New Hyde park and I never had any issue with the quality of service or the food itself until I moved to Florida and ordered take out from the Lauderdale location. I ordered a chicken cutlet Parm hero along with escarole, sausage and bean entree. When I came home and opened the chicken Parm I couldn't believe what I saw. One very small very thin very over cooked cutlet with hardey any sauce and no mozzarella cheese. I tried to call the restaurant over and over again. It took 6 attempts before someone answered the phone. Then I was put on hold then finally when someone did come to the phone they were unable to help me. I requested a manager and was told there was no manager available. So I called again the very next day and again was told that there was no manager available. I insisted that a manager return my call so after a short while I received a call from a woman named Rosie. She stated that she was the manager. So I explained to Rosie what had happened and that I have been a long time customer of the family owned restaurants but Rosie did not seem to care! She said too bad. She said you ate the food and there was nothing she was willing to do! I said to Rosie all I wanted was to be taken care of the next time I came to the restaurant and she said no! She would not take care of me! What kind of manager is this? She also told me that she would not be held hostage by a unsatisfied customer! OMG!!! I have never been treated like this by any restaurant ever in my life? I will contact the Cotero family and the Illiano family to inform them of this horrible excuse of a manager and the lack of quality of the food that is being served at the Fort Lauderdale location! Again all I wanted was to be taken care of the next time I came to the restaurant. I wanted nothing for free just to be assured I would receive proper food.More

If you're looking for large servings of mediocre food and terrible service at a below average price, this is the place for you. Considering all the other Italian restaurants in the area, I would put this place at the bottom of the list.

My wife and I stopped here for a New Years Eve dinner based on cravings and great reviews!! Luckily, we had a very short wait and then we were able to begin our journey into Umberto's Italian Bistro! We were seated and greeted by our...server Ashley. We only ordered water for our drinks but for our appetizer, we ordered the Arancini and for our dinners we ordered the Chicken Francese and the Chicken Rollintini. All was delicious and filling! This was definitely worth ths visit! Oh I forgot, the garlic rolls where ridiculous!!! See the pic! A definitely follow up visit forthcoming!! Easy parking, easy access and a great location on Commercial Blvd. Ashley did a great job and made this night even better!! Buon Appetit!!More

My family and I really enjoyed the pizza here! The garlic rolls were also very good to have while waiting for our pizza to arrive. The service was good. I enjoyed watching regulars come in an interact with the staff members. It was nice that...it wasn't a typical tourist place to go. I also love a good restaurant that isn't a chain.More

Lots of pizza choices on the menu. My wife and I split a large, 16 inch, Primavera Pizza. The veggies on it -- carrots, broccoli, zucchini, onions -- were properly cooked: not too hard, not too soft. The carrots and broccoli in particular were easy...to chew. The crust was well baked -- stiff, just as we preferred. Reasonably priced. Very good service. CDC pandemic guidelines maintained. The pizza was large enough so that we had enough left over for a doggie bag.More
