Fodor's Review

Run by the Di Porzio family since 1916, Umberto is one of the city's classic restaurants. It combines the classiness of its neighborhood, Chiaia, and the friendliness one finds in other parts of Naples. Try the tubettoni 'do tre dita ("three-finger" pasta with octopus, tomato, olives and capers); it bears the nickname of the original Umberto, who happened to be short a few digits. Owner Massimo and sisters Lorella and Roberta (Umberto's grandchildren) are all wine

experts and oversee a fantastic cellar. Note that Umberto is also one of the city's few restaurants catering to diners with a gluten allergy, as well as to vegetarians.

Family warmth & waiters that make you smile

My sister & I experienced true warmth and service in this restaurant. After visiting too many shops and restaurants in Italy that made you feel like help & courtesy were an additional favour, finally we found somewhere good. The food & wine were truly excellent and the family atmosphere was extremely welcoming. The antipasti were brilliant and almost a meal in themselves. We will definitely return!

A pleasure!

We went to Umberto with a group of ten, including 2 small children, for a Sunday lunch. As is always the case in Naples, the children were more than welcome. The food was excellent - Neapolitan cuisine with a twist. There were both fish and meat dishes available as well as pizza - a rarity here during the day. We had very servicable table wine, both white and red, but the restaurant does have a very extensive wine list - especially for Campagnian

wines. The service was excellent. We stayed for hours and were well looked-after. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Make a reservation because it is rather small. There is no parking at the restaurant but we got lucky at the nearby Viale Communale.
