Found this spot 3 years ago & it is now on our "must do" list when in Hilton Head. Knowledgeable staff. Great wine list. I had the Veal Scaloppini with lemon & capers & my husband had the Osso Buco special. Wonderful experience!

Always delicious. Great service. Lots of options. Great wine list. Try the small bites in the bar area if you just want a little, they have wine pairings with them. Definitely need reservations.

Every visit has been a delight with daily specials, menu selections for everyone, and just love the lava cake for dessert. We look forward to celebrating our special occasions at this restaurant. Service and food are outstanding. Never disappointed.

Ate dinner at the bar during a recent visit to Hilton Head It was such a wonderful experience that we returned for dinner again the following night. Samples several appetizers and, between us, 4 different pasta dishes over the 2 nights. All the food was excellent: well-prepared and delicious. Whole experience was amplified by Elijah's knowledge of the menu and... More
