Went based on TripAdvisor rating. Not disappointed! Manuel provided excellent service. The mussels were very good. The halibut was perfect and the pork chop was equally tasty. We really enjoyed the place. Try it.

Amazing! Sums up our experience at Ombra Cucina! Our waiter Ned's recommendations were spot on! The calamari was a light and delicate fare, the halibut was amazing and my cousin had the Gorgonzola gnocchi so tasty. For dessert, as we were deciding which sorbet to choose, Ned recommended the pineapple sorbet. Perfect end to a wonderful birthday dinner. Thanks to... More

We were greeted by the sweetest lady. Our waiter was Ned and he was phenomenal! We started with calamari that was lightly breaded and so good. The veal was incredible!

We dined with another couple at Ombra earlier this week. Our waiter was attentive and professional. We found the menu choices to be diverse and the food we ordered was very good and served hot. We ordered wine from the extensive list and thought it was fairly priced. We would certainly revisit this restaurant.

Great place to enjoy a fine Italian meal. Veal dishes are well prepared and the pasta dishes are excellent. The mussels appetizer contains about 3 dozen mussels in a red sauce that is perfectly seasoned.

This was our first visit. We waited at the bar with Logan who recommended a nice glass of wine while we waited for our guests. It is a very pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. Michael was one of the best servers we have experienced. Great recommendations. By the time we left the line was out the door. Make a reservation... More
