“Outstanding!”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

We've dined at Ombra twice now, once with four other friends and once just the two of us. On both occasions we've been impressed with the warm and welcoming atmosphere, the excellent food and outstanding service. Most recently our waiter, Ronald, was impeccable - knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. We will be back whenever we visit Hilton Head.

“Great food”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Alex, our waiter, was knowledgeable of the food and wine and offered advice and information concerning the size of portions and the dishes. The Bolognese was well prepared, the fish was was excellent moist and not overcooked. Warm inviting atmosphere. When we return to Hilton Head we will again visit this restaurant.

“Authentic Italian”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

We visited Ombra with another couple for the kick-off of Hilton Head's Restaurant week, and this place did it up right! We were warmly welcomed at the door and seated promptly. Some restaurants act as though patrons for Restaurant Week are a bother-not so here, and the selections were outstanding on the special menu. Service was professional and prompt, presentation lovely and the food delish!
The atmosphere is lively and tables are fairly close together but it adds up to a place where people are having a good time and enjoying the experience. If you are a stodgy old buzzkill type looking for a quiet place to just whisper to your companions, go somewhere else.
We will definitely come again!

“We'll definitely be back!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Our first time to Ombra. Beautiful relaxing atmosphere, wonderful service and incredible food! We told our waiter, Alex, that we wanted to take our time for dinner and he adapted beautifully to our request. We wanted to dine "Italian style", appetizer, pasta, salad, then entree' so we split the featured appetizer (thinly sliced tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, roasted red peppers, etc) which was delicious! We then moved on to pasta. We each had a half course (mine was the ravioli of the day and his was clams and tomatoes with spaghetti). Again both incredible! Next we split the salad with apples, Gorgonzola, pine nuts over greens. Yes, it was amazing too! Finally we split the veal tenderloin, which was perfectly prepared to order and just the right sized portion. We thought we were finished but were then tempted by the spumoni truffle. We gave In to temptation and were rewarded with the lovely presentation and flavorful chocolate coated gelato sensation. Thanks Ombra, and Alex, the evening was perfect!
