King Umberto offers fine dinning at fair prices. The garlic sticks are amazing I remember my Grandmother would buy boxes for new years and Christmas Eve.

I have never had a bad meal in this restaurant and I have never had a bad slice of pizza in this pizzeria. The food is consistently excellent day in, day out, month after month and year after year.

Delicious dinner as always and the staff treats their guests like family. It has been our go-to place since the mid 1980s.
