Excellent meal-rivaled meals throughout Italy. Chef altered pappardelle w/porcini to my personal taste. Waiter Ned was very professional & had excellent recommendations tailored to our preferences. Wine suggestions were dead on. Cannoli was ok, not quite like Natales in Summit, NJ & coffee was quite disappointing for such an excellent restaurant. From one Italian American to another-mangia!

We dined at Ombra on a strong recommendation from a family member, expecting to have a nice, local Italian dining experience. Not so, from the service(Mitch), to the menu, to the exquisite food presentation we experienced first class culinary experience. The preparation of each dish was authentic and perfectly prepared. I will go out of my way to go again,soon!

We are cynical, hardened new yorkers. This place exceeded expectations. Two reasons. 1. The food. 2. Our waiter, Ned Ambiance ok, tables a little close, it was sometimes a little loud. However, all else was great. Ned was super friendly, attentive ( never an empty water glass) and almost magically fast. Best kind if waiter -knew his stuff, knew how... More

The restaurant is very tastefully decorated with excellent spacing between the tables. The lighting enhanced the mood. Gloria, our server, was attentive without hovering. The food was from the, the Tuiscan early dining menu. My wife had the Mediterranean Sea Bass and I the Italian equivalent of Jaegerschnitzel. The food was outstanding from start to finish. Chef Michael is a... More

Ombra Cucina has a great ambiance, the food is absolutely delicious and well prepared and our server, Ned, was awesome. Ned was very knowledgeable, paced our dinners well, and added greatly to our overall experience. The entire evening exceeded our expectations. Because Ned made the evening so enjoyable, we returned a few nights later for another dinner.

My wife surprised me for my 60th birthday by taking me to the very best restaurant in Hilton Head by far!! The appetizers were delicious and our dinners were perfectly cooked and were actually hot when they arrived to our table. Ned our server was very genuine and attentive to our special celebration dinner. The food was a little pricey... More

Like last year, we celebrated our anniversary at Ombra, and we could not have been more pleased. Our waiter Anthony remembered us from last year, and was most instrumental in helping us enjoy a great evening. From the complimentary glass of bubbly to the delicious antipasti dishes to the main courses, service was never rushed, and the quality of the... More

The food was excellent. We ordered from the Prix Fix menu and the portions were large. Pricing was reasonable except for the wine...Expensive!!! The server was overzealous...guess that's better than being among the missing...but, was very distracting.
