My husband and I were there on vacation and met friends who live in Hilton Head. They recommended it and all were deeply disappointed. The service was terrible. We ordered a salad and an appetizer and we were there for over 2 hours to just get this. The restaurant was very noisy because the tables are close together.

Excellent service and the food was very good. It is in a shopping center, so outdoor appearance was nothing special.

Without a doubt, the best restaurant on Hilton Head Island. Great Italian restaurant, traditional dishes expertly prepared and a good wine list. The staff is knowledgeable and very attentive. You will never be disappointed.

Went to a wine pairing dinner, the food was very good, but expensive for what we were given to eat. Frankly, some left hungry. The wine was available for purchase after dinner, prices were considerably higher than at a wine store.

We had just arrived in Hilton Head, late, and we had to keep pushing our reservation out. They accommodated us and we were still late. No matter how busy, they put us right to a table and the place was packed! The service is top notch and both of our meals where A+++. I had a veal special, with the... More

The kind folks at the MVC gave me complimentary tickets to try the Tasting Menu at Michael Anthony's, complete with four glasses of select wine, one for each course plus a prosecco to start. It is a tasting menu, so the portions were hardly full-sized, though the glasses of wine were. I really enjoyed the Valpolicella Ripasso paired with the... More
