Good (or Very Good for some), Elegant and Pricey

Personal profile: 60s couple, enjoy good food, generous drinks and good service, not afraid to order more expensive items if uniquely prepared but don't like to throw away money. Soft spot for white-tablecloth places. Now to Ombra. Ambience -- busy for a Tuesday night, but we were greeted and... read more

We were looking for a nice place to eat; pulled up Opentable and found this quaint spot -- perfect Italian Fine dinning. In strip mall kind of place but the interior is wonderful. Wait staff attentive and food delicious. Had the veal and my wife the fish. Both perfectly cooked. Great espresso and a chocolate dessert to finish.

Our dinner was absolutely delicious and the service was impeccable! Alex made our dining experience fabulous. We have visited many Italian restaurants in New York and this was as good if not better! Don't miss this restaurant on your visit to Hilton Head.

My husband and I visited Ombra while on a mini vacation. It was highly recommended by the hotel concierge who said "it's one of the best dining experiences on the island." He didn't oversell it! The service (Mitch) was excellent. The atmosphere was charming, although at peak dinner hour a tad on the loud side. The food was delicious! We... More

My husband and I dined at a quaint little table in a small corner of the restaurant, but it happened to be on the back side wall of a cutlery and tableware cupboard. Much of the meal was spent with our table vibrating or hearing the clanging of dishes. Not overwhelmingly irritating, but off-putting when you are on the receiving... More

Our brunch consisted of A three course meal and it was wonderful. Our waiter Alex was exceptionally polite and the atmosphere was perfect. Would definitely recommend.

We have been pretty happy with restaurants on Hilton Head Island. So when we heard about Ombra we were looking forward to giving it a try. Sorry to say that while the food and service were good the menu looks just like any other Italian restaurant, nothing special. We felt like we were in a chain restaurant. If you are... More

Booked reservations via Open table App. Ordered the Tagtailette Alla Bolognese Pasta Dish. Fresh homemade flat pasta with the best three meat Bolognese sauce ever. You can't go wrong with dish.
