Owner Carmine Annunziata took to the Umberto's Facebook page on Wednesday, June 26th to announce that the Dutchess County eatery, was heading in a new direction.

In the video, Annunziata explains that he and his family have decided that Umberto's will no longer offer take out and dine-in options. However, they will be focusing more on catering. Umberto's has a large catering hall in their building along with a bar area that was added several years ago.

The change to Umberto's, according to a Facebook comment, is effective immediately.

If you have questions regarding future catering events you can call Umberto's at 845-462-5117.
