We had a 7:30p reservation and were seated promptly. Our server Rebecca was wonderful and patient with us whe we decided on our wine choices. Based on the dinner specials, five of us opted for those options and quite glad we did based on Rebecca's recommendations. The portion sizes were very generous for the prices.

The wine prices were also very reasonable which prompted us to get a bottle of Italian white and a red Chianti.

The noise level is pretty bad. We sat in the back room and the restaurant had some large groups in for the tournament. We stayed for dessert as we noticed they do not rush you out. It is a true Italian feeling of enjoying your meal with a great glass of wine and good conversation.

I would absolutely go back again!

We did the early bird, which I personally thought was ridiculously priced at $26.00, when compared to his previous restaurant, which is and still is $18.00, but I was wrong. The first courses were similar, but the entrees are just superior. I had the Sea Bass and my wife the Veal, either would have been $30.00. The deserts are the same.

Who ever complained about the staff was on something, our severer was wonderful, and everyone greeted us and thanked us for coming. Since we live in the central time zone, this eating at 4:15 is crazy. Guess we need to do the early birds in California.

We had a fabulous dinner at Ombre! Excellent service, superb food presented in a beautiful way, and a fun wine list. People had complained about the noise but the restaurant was full and we were seated near two larger parties and noise was not an issue at all. The food was fresh and tasty and the restaurant itself is very attractive. A fun,upscale Italian dinner restaurant. We asked for a stand alone table instead of the banquette because we prefer a more private dinner setting and they were very accommodating. We had a very nice time and would definitely recommend it to others. When we are back in the summer we will return with our two (adult) daughters.

This is authentic Italian. The service is phenomenal. Ask for Ned when you make your reservations. He knows the menu and wines and LISTENS to you. Fish, pasta, mussels, soup are sooo tasty!

My husband and I were in Hilton Head the last week of March. We decided to check out Ombra based on a recommendation by folks we met down there. The food was incredible. I ordered the filet ( phenomenal ) and my husband ordered the veal tenderloin. For dessert, we split the souffle; it was chocolate heaven.

We're planning to go back this summer to visit friends and will absolutely be making reservations.
Excellent staff, extremely friendly. We highly recommend it!
