Small, reservations recommended. Sausage in pepper very good for an appetizer. I ordered the Caesar salad and Chicken French. Both good but the chicken has a bit too much lemony taste. My husband ordered the pasta with vodka sauce and shrimp. He liked it very much. Others in our family liked their meals also. Red sauce is simple but tasty.

Had to go quite early as we had a group of 10 and we didn't call for reservations until the day before. Promptly seated and waited on. Good wine selection, limited beer selection, no liquor. Small menu but it covered all the bases. Had the calamari, stuffed pepper and Caesar salad, all delicious. The penne ala vodka sauce with shrimp... More

Every time we visit Hilton Head Island we go to this little bit of Italy that never fails to justify our returning. The food is excellent and the service absolutely awesome - Lawrence was our waiter again, and he is fabulous!!! Each of our entrees was superb as were our salads. This is a fairly small restaurant, so you must... More

This small family run restaurant is rightly very popular, so be sure to call for reservations. The salmon special my wife had was pasta and lemon caper sauce, and it was delicious. So was my vegetarian lasagna (included cheese, so not vegan.) Good wine list.

Slipped in here on a quiet Saturday night for the first time. Bit of a drive for us but the Italian scene in Bluffton has grown a bit stale. Found the inside to be cozy and charming, not sure of the comments as to it being crowded as the closest table to us was at least 5 feet. Our enthusiastic... More

For great Italian food you need to try this place. It is a smaller restaurant and reservations are suggested as it is usually booked. There is a small outside dining section but most tables are inside. We had Chicken Parm, Tortellini w/sausage, and Chicken Francaise. I tried all of these. Everything was served hot and cooked to perfection. The chicken... More

Been to Pomodori 4 times now, one of our favorites. Very small place, so be sure to get reservations. Try the fried zucchini and stuffed peppers, home made paparrdelle, so good.

Excellent food! Local, home-town feel! This restaurant is at the end of a strip mall--don't let that scare you away. So cozy and comfortable with excellent food, service, and atmosphere. Not great for large groups or very small children.

As regular visitors to Hilton Head Island ("HHI") for over 20 years now, my wife and I have had the opportunity to visit quite a few excellent restaurants. While we have established a fairly consistent list of "can't miss" places, we are always on the lookout for new restaurants to try out. During our most recent visit to HHI in... More
