“New Favorite on Hilton Head Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

I first ate here a few months ago and thought it was excellent. Last night I took my husband for his birthday and it was excellent+. The restaurant is small, but the tables are well spaced and the decor is uncluttered, so it doesn't feel crowded. My husband ordered the veal special which he throroughly enjoyed and I ordered the scallops with leeks, which has become my new favorite meal on the Island. The scallops are perfectly cooked and served on a bed of buttery leeks and fried pancetta. Just plain delicious! The owner greeted us as we arrived and stopped by the table to ask how we were enjoying our meal. When we complimented her on the unique fried zucchini appetizer, she explained the origins of the dish (her father insisted she serve it this way). All in all we had a wonderful experience and will return often!

“Another 10”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Took some friends and a a wonderful time. Love the zucchini appetizer and the calamari. Had the mussel appetizer for dinner as the portion is huge. Has a nice kick to it. My husband had the veal special which was delicious. The friends we were with really enjoyed it.

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner last nite...yes, it is small and tight, but that's what gives it ambiance...reminds me of the old Italian eateries in NYC and Italy! We enjoyed Brodo Nonni and roasted stuffed yellow pepper as apps...YUMMY! The seafood special with Gorgonzola sauce was excellent and so unusual...the cheese was just the right proportion as Gorg cheese can be very overwhelming but not here...we both enjoyed it...the orchiette and sausage entree was also enjoyed by our guests. We all can't wait to come back...thank you Amanda for your wonderful food.
