Dinning with Family and friends in a classy atmosphere with great appetizers selective Italian dishes to smooth deserts and of course wine and more! We will bring friends back for special occasions but a little pricey for everyday families.

By shar Michael Anthony's continues to shine as Hilton Head's top Italian restaurant! Every dish served to our table was truly fantastic! The Tagliatelle Bolognese with an authentic house made pasta is home-style Italian at its finest! The pasta portions are plentiful. A wonderful wine list and excellent service by Kat completed a great dining experience!

Excellent food and service. Our waiter was very friendly and informative. Not a huge place so I would call for a reservation during the busy season or on weekends. Atmosphere was nice.

We revisited Michael Anthony's this year because of a prior visit a couple of years ago. It was our favorite Hilton Head Restaurant then and it still is. Wonderful service, excellent Italian food. Can't be beat!

Our dining experience here was 100% perfection. We returned to dine here for the second time in one week, for my husband's birthday. Upon our arrival, the staff was welcoming and delightful. The overall ambience is quite comfortable and pleasant. Everything we (four) ordered was delicioso! The carpaccio, salads, filet mignon, shrimp and scallop entrees...all prepared beautifully!

Enjoyed the practicality and honesty of Chef Chris who was careful to explain recipes, ingredients, and preparation. We enjoyed large servings of a delightful arugula and cantaloupe salad with a house-made champagne dressing, lobster bisque, veal medallions with a vodka sauce, and chocolate-covered strawberries in addition to wine for $50. The price is fair for the quality of the class... More
