This is a great place for couples or friends to have a delicious meal, but please leave the rambunctious kids at home. Take the noisy ones to the north end Crazy Crab instead and let the adults relax alone for the evening. Ombra Cucina has wonderfully prepared food, separated dining areas, white table cloths and professional waitstaff which you will... More

Never write reviews-but had to because of the excellent food and service. Went on a weekend getaway and was hands down the best meal of the trip. Vegetarian friendly as well. Our server Ned was amazing and we will definitely come back here again.

We live on HHI. My wife picked Ombra to take me to for my birthday. Had't been there for awhile. What a wonderful evening. We got a nice, private, two-person table separated from the the others by curtains on either side. Food and presentation were just excellent. We had a seafood past primi, then I had Halibut, and my wife... More

Great carpaccio and the gnocchis are finger licking good . The house raviolis is a good choice. The wine choices is great but be prepared to spend a little more than expected. Enjoy... More

Hostess great, open, friendly and knowledgeable. Atmosphere very charming and warm. Food was superb and plentiful. What was wanting was service. Wait staff was endearing and conversational but missed some of our orders, provided spotty and uneven service that disappointed us all.

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
