Allergy Accommodations OUTSTANDING!

We didn't think we would be able to visit our favorite Hilton Head restaurant with our entire family as our oldest child has severe food allergies to Milk and Egg. But loves Pasta! We called prior to our visit. Kristian and the manager assured us the staff and chef would be able to accommodate... read more

Lucy was our server and she couldn't have been better. She was knowledge about the menu items(suggesting half portions when one of us couldn't decide between 2 pasta dishes), definitely knew her wines again making suggestions. The food was delicious and came out in a timely manner, not rushing us nor making the meal drag on

After the fabulous dinner we had when we were in HH last year, we booked a reservation again. We were all very impressed by Brooklyn our server. She was amazingly knowledgeable about every dish, wine. She recited an amazing array of dishes and ingredients, without the aid of referring to anything written down. She was also very knowledgeable about the... More

We choose this restaurant after much research and as always a little skeptical because you just never know. We were on vacation in HHI and wanted somewhere nice to eat out one night and we made the best choice. It was amazing from the arrival to the finish. I was a little costly but when you look at the big... More

We have been coming to Hilton Head Island since '84 and since Michael Anthony's opened , we make sure we dine there. The food is consistently good and the service excellent. Finnie suggested the crab over pasta ( a dish that his father always orders ) and he was right on target ! It was enjoyable talking to the maitre... More

We spend a week every year in Hilton Head's Sea Pines Plantation. After vacationing here for almost 30 years, we have developed a routine which includes going out to dine at a "special" place three nights out of our week. For the last five years, we start out our week at Michael Anthony's because we know, from personal experience, that... More

Went here with two couples to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Saturday evening, at 7 pm. Wait staff was excellent, convinced us to try to appetizer special (was outstanding) and two of us got an entree special. That coupled with a good bottle of wine '70.00 made for an amazing dinner, but pricy. Dinner for four without the tip was $265.00.... More

Went here based off Tripadvisor reviews. Food and service were very good. Had the Caprese salad and beet salads for appetizers. Both exceeded expectations. Friends had the fish special and occhi de Lupo - both were very good. Wife and I had the Risotto Primavera which was really good.
