This was a great find. Comfortable atmosphere. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Fanatastic food. No one rushed us. Convenient to Sea Pines, Palmetto Dunes and Marriott resorts.

“Delicious find mid Island”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Ombra. One of the best. Italian meals ever. You have to go if Italian food is one of your favourites. We have great Italian food in our home city, but this was spectacular. The place is nice and service good, but come here for the FOOD. Don't miss out on the Gnoochi or Veal. The Black Pasta Seafood special was also worthwhile. Gloria was a great server. Delicious wines by the glass as well! Yes, it is in a strip like mall, but don't be put off.

You won't find better authentic Italian food and downright excellent service on Hilton Head. Our server Gloria was outstanding and the reason we will continue to dine at OMBRA

“Authentic Italian!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Easily the best food I've eaten on Hilton Head Island. I really enjoyed a recent trip to Ombra. Our table had caprese salad, prosciutto & Parmesan as appetizers. All were fantastic. We enjoyed house made ravioli with a simple tomato sauce and house made gnocchi with a Gorgonzola and prosciutto sauce for our pasta course. The ravioli was one of the three best pasta dishes I have ever tasted. For our meat course we had filet and halibut, both expertly prepared. Deserts were wonderful as well. I also enjoyed the quality selection of Italian wines with quite a few available by the glass.

“Creative and authentic Italian food”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We have been going to HH for over twenty years and love to try restaurants that are new to us. Ombra is in the old Antonio's space in Wexford Village. We felt like we were in a Tuscan restaurant, with the warm atmosphere and the brick walls. We started with the beet with goat cheese. The beets were thinly sliced in large circles and the salad was both a work of art and delicious!! My husband had the penne with wild mushrooms, pancetta,peas and a tomato/ cream sauce which was great. I had the pappardelle with mushrooms , prosciutto and a light cream sauce. The pasta was freshly made and cooked perfectly. We would definitely go back.
