“Little Italy in Hilton Head, A Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Good food in a semi-casual atmosphere. A smaller then expected selection of entree's but those our group tried were very tasty and generous sized portions. Space is limited and reservations would certainly be advisable (any day of the week they are open.) Tables are pretty close together making movement difficult but the wait staff has no difficulty getting around and were very friendly and helpful. All in all a very pleasant dining experience and would certainly visit again whenever dinner time rolls around and we find ourselves on the south end of Hilton Head Island.

“delicious”

We spent a week in Hilton Head, and this was the best restaurant we went to. Very subtle tastes. Reservations recommended.

“Real Italian.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Sadly, there aren't too many real foodie restaurants on Hilton Head. As in most tourist areas, the island attracts operators more interested in the till rather than the table. Chef Amanda learned her stuff in Italy and it's the real deal. If you think Italian is the Olive Garden you might be confused here. if you know that a focus on the best ingredients cooked and combined to bring out their best is true Italian you'll be right at home. If you sit at the bar, Nathan will be glad to educate you in a variety of wines and make perfect suggestions to complement your meal. Make reservations early, the word is out.

“Good Things Do Come in Small Packages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

This small Italian Eatery opened in the old It's Greek to Me location. Physically not much has changed, but the food is excellent and they have several specials nightly based on what is fresh and locally available. Service is attentive without being smothering. The front dining room is right by the front door and causes a cold drafty condition which ladies might want to prepare for or ask to be seated in the back room. Expect these folks will out grow this location very soon with a full dinning room nightly.

“Cozy and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Really liked this place. After some apps, we shared the orecchiette con salsiccia. It was very very good--the pasta was a perfect al dente, with a lovely sauce and house made sausage and broccollini.

It is small however. I understand it can get pretty crowded, so we suggest you make reservations--even in the off season (it's popular with the locals). Looks like it has a view over a small pond, but since it was winter when we were there (and dark), we didn't see that. The owner chef popped out to make sure we we happy--which we were. That's always a nice touch.
