“Not the usual Italian restaurant”

Try the lobster pie-it's big enough for two. There is always fresh seafood with a special preparation. The murals are unique and special because they were done by a Savannah College of Art and Design student.

“Overpriced and tasteless”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

The food was very disappointing. The pasta was under cooked. My husband ordered a chicken dish which was cold and tasteless. The atmosphere is good and the staff is well trained but it can't make up for bad food.

We're so sorry you didn't have a good experience at our restaurant. Our pasta is served Al Dente which doesn't suit everyone. You're more than welcome to call or email me. We'd like the opportunity to make it up to you.

Regardless of your request, we'd like the opportunity to satisfy your palate.

“Italian with a West Coast Flair”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

The interior has a solid Italian theme, and the menu definitely has a strong traditional Italian influence. The extensive list of dishes, however, has many unique and inventive alternatives. The entrees tend to be on the rich side, but there is something available for just about any taste. Friendly, attentive service – the staff actually seems to enjoy working there. This is one of the area's best.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

As always, Trattoria does not fail to impress! We went for my birthday dinner last night, and Chef extended the small plates menu for us even though we did not eat until an hour and a half after they usually serve them. They were wonderful, great sized so we did not miss having a full meal at all! We got the full service, along with the comp prosecco and amuse bouche, and the wonderful homemade hummus and bread! The staff is awesome, the experince was great. I can't wait to go back! Kudos to Karen, Chef Hugo, and hostess from Hungary, Charlotte! BTW, the food was amazing :)

Make no mistake, we're all here to support one of America's most creative chefs. His creativity is only surpassed by his desire to please his patrons.

Hilton Head is proud to have Chef Hugo Lee in the kitchen performing his magic.

Thank you for your visit and your review. TripAdvisor customers have been our most vocal and positive guests and we thank you for not only your business, but your words as well.

See you soon!
