Located at 295 Franklin Street, Umbria is situated in the heart of Boston's Financial District, just steps away from the waterfront. With an ambience mirroring that of an Italian Villa, the restaurant's first two floors surrounded by rustic brick walls, Italian marble and hardwood floors offer a romantic dinner setting and an inviting atmosphere for cocktails. Inspired by the Umbrian region of Italy, Umbria offers simple yet hearty dishes including a wide selection of house-made pastas, fresh seafood, as well as brick-oven, roasted and braised beef and chicken. During the late night hours, Umbria's third, fourth and fifth floors transform into a night club. The club features a vodka bar, plush couches, DJs and some of Boston's best night life events.
