Little Italy
While Little Italy is one of the city's smallest
neighbourhoods, its streets are packed with visitors
from around the globe, especially on summer weekends
when the streets are closed to traffic. Stroll up
Mulberry Street, the heart of Little Italy, for a
dense mix of Italian restaurants with sidewalk tables,
cafes, and old-school food shops. Don’t be surprised
when the hosts beckon you to pay them a visit. Stop in

A reservation wouldn't be a bad idea, although when we went (midweek) the restaurant was sparsely attended. Dress? Casual is fine.

Come visit Umbertos Clam House, the legend of Mulberry Street in the heart of Little Italy! This historic restaurant has been serving happy locals, tourists and celebrities alike for over 40 years. We specialize in seafood and are the only ones in Little Italy to do so. Many of our dishes have become famous since our opening in 1972. Our menu features our legendary Hot Red Clam Sauce which is simmered to perfection for hours just as it was the first day we opened. Be sure to enjoy our Baked Clams (best in the world), Linguine with White Clam Sauce, Veal Saltimbocca Alla Romana, Chicken Scarpariello and Calimari. We have also added many new exciting dishes such as Short Rib Ragu over Penne, Spiedini a la Romano and more. Umbertos is a special treat for all who come. Our signature open kitchen and custom built wood bar are signature attractions. Our unpretentious flair and professional service combined with the freshest, most authentic product possible, all at reasonable prices, keep our customers satisfied and coming back for more. Umbertos is proud to offer our new late night dining experience and serves an array of comfort foods such as eggs benedict, omelettes made to order, cheeseburgers and fries, BLTs, chicken cutlet sandwiches and more.
