My wife and I went to Ombra Cucina Rustica for our 24th anniversary. What a meal! We started with with a baby green salad with pears and pine nuts. Simply amazing. We then moved on to the calamari that was fried so lightly that the crust dissolved in your mouth as you ate them. I then had the Mediterranean Sea... More

First visit here, in a shopping mall but one you have passed through the front door it is a different ambiance. Wood flooring and old brick walls make for a very nice feeling. Very quick service to bring water an take a drink order. Outstanding wine list (over 20 Italian Amarone selections!). Very nice, diverse menu; filet was excellent as... More

This is a second review of the restaurant for me and unfortunately this one is negative. My mother and I went to the restaurant the Thursday after Heritage and yes we did not have a reservation. The (woman) that was the hostess said that they were booked until 8:30 so we decided to leave. I returned and asked about reservations... More

HHI is blessed with MANY good to great restaurants and Ombra Cucina Rustica is definitely in the great category. Last night was our first visit but it certainly will not be the last! We live in the area and had previously enjoyed Michael Anthony's immensely but believe we understand the ever so slight higher ranking on TA as Ombra has... More

Go to Ombra in Hilton Head. The food is delicious and the wine lit is excellent, very extensive. From beginning to end, this restaurant cares about you. The service is very fine and friendly. The quality of ingredients is exceptional and the preparations are fine tuned. Enjoy a great meal.

Everything from the wine to homemade ravioli to sea scallop appetizer to the halibut entire was awesome. Fantastic service and amazing food. In house Limoncello topped the evening off.

My husband and I dined with another local Hilton Head Island couple at Ombra Cucina Rustica earlier this week. Three of the four of us ordered a veal entrée and all three of us claimed that our veal dish was the best we had ever had--although all three were different preparations! The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was refined... More

We made reservations and were received and seated promptly. The restaurant was large and busy. We both had the signature halibut which is our favorite. It was nicely prepared but we have had better. The Panzanella alla Toscana was our best dish of he night.

I made this reservation a couple of weeks in advance and never received any sort of confirmation before the reservation. I found this odd at a restaurant that claims to be fine dining, but perhaps not all places have the courtesy. We were barely greeted upon arrival and rushed to our seats, the menus were shoved in our faces as... More
