If you like great Italian cuisine in an upscale atmosphere you will enjoy a visit here. We had a very pleasant greeting then excellent service throughout the meal. The menu covers all the bases. There is also a very nice looking early dining menu if you wish to be seated before 1745. The wine list is very good. We started... More

My wife had a 4 course dinner and all courses were done very well. Great flavor and variety. I had prosciutto and mozzarella as an appetizer. That... More

You know the restaurant must be good when even the bar area gets reserved for dinner! Took a large group for dinner Saturday night. They accommodated our late reservation with seating upstairs in their private kitchen for classes which was perfect. Our server, Peter, provided top rate service and the food was divine! Home made pastas and veal dishes that... More

We had a delicious meal as always. And our waiter, Elijah Walters, was extraordinary. We had a special request, well a couple of them!, that required some strategic thinking and Elijah came through! Everyone was envious and we laughed and had such a memorable time!! Thank you so much Elijah and Michael Anthony's!

We had made reservations for their fantastic early bird but traffic delays caused us to arrive too late. No problem! The regular menu is of course more expensive than the early bird but this night they were offering a four course tasting menu for $40 that was wonderful. Two had that and two had the seafood with linguini which was... More

This is our go to restaurant on Hilton Head, usually making it our place to celebrate special occasions. Great service and menu. Most nights will have a special fish on the menu. Their pasta is the best. We also use their market to get sauces when we want to eat in.

Decided to treat my Mom to dinner and this restaurant was recommended overall for great Italian cuisine. Being Italian, we tend to have high standards. The wine is absurdly over priced and limits selection by the glass. We started with an appetizer Prosciutto de Parma and it was absolutely scrumptious. Dinner was the ravioli special for me and veal scallopini... More
