Umberto's of Manhasset - Manhasset


Manhasset, NY

The Beth Donner Design team worked with Umberto’s Pizza to evoke the sense of Umberto Corteo’s upbringing in a small rustic village on the outskirts of Naples, Italy, mixed with the hip vibes of New York’s City and sophisticated feeling of Manhasset. Brick and pops of cherry red mix with old plaster walls display vintage pizza peels featuring the Corteo family recipes. Custom art using one of Federico Fellini’s famous quotes “Life is a combination of magic and pasta” is displayed using a saying Umberto likes to add “because he didn’t try my pizza” adds a bit of whimsy and a personal touch to make guests feel transported but comfortable.
