I am Italian and I was in Hilton Head for business and I decided to go to Ombra, I have been in US for the last 10 days and I must admit that I had the best meal since I got here, tonight I really felt like if I was in Italy, simple ingredient very well mixed together, this is what Italian kitchen is about. The staff was very friendly and never made me feel alone, for sure this restaurant will be my second house every time I will come back to South Carolina.

We went to Ombra - even though we heard it was new. When you walk in, it is beautiful. The design makes you feel like you are in Italy. The service is excellent and the food was perfect - just like I ordered it. Great job and keep up the good work. We will be back!

Wonderful menu with a delightful ambience. Wait staff was very knowledgable and attentive.
Nice selection on the wine list. This is located in the former Antonio's, but the Interior has been totally redone. The bar area is also attractive and looked comfortable enough to have your dinner at the bar if the restaurant is full. You will likely need reservations as I think this is going to be a very popular dining choice.

Loved the atmosphere of this restaurant. Our waiter Marshall did a fabulous job and explained all the specials. We enjoyed all our selections including the antipasto appetizer, bread, pasta, tuna carpaccio, tiramisu and cappuccino . Our only big complaint was local water served. Feel like a pricey restaurant deserves decent water in out water glasses.

We went to this restaurant the other evening to try it out. I had the BEST local black sea bass. It was recommended by our server, Rebecca. She also made an excellent wine choice for us as we had two different meals. The sea bass portion was extremely generous
I have had various meals at other establishments and thought they were great but I feel that the food here is the best on the Island and I have lived here a few years.
It is a new restaurant but I feel that this restaurant has a great future!
Michael's limoncello is the best. It is sooooo good I had two!
