I had two of the special for dinner, the crab cake appetizer and grouper and risotto entree. Both were exceptional. The service could not have been better. We will be regulars.

we have a second home on the island and dine out frequently. Michael Anthony's is our home away from home. The owners, waitstaff and bartenders are all so friendly and make us feel welcome every time we set foot in the door. we enjoy having dinner at the bar when it is just the two of us and like the upstairs when dining with friends as the downstairs dining room tends to be a little too lively. favorites here are the pasta bolognese (one of the best we've ever had including Italy) and the veal saltimbocca. Don't pass up dessert - the panna cotta and the chocolate lava cake are to die for.

I've lived (and eaten Italian) in Boston and NYC. This is the best Italian food I've ever had. Great ambiance, wine list, and exceptional food.

We have been to Michael Anthony's many times the past 5 or 6 years or so and we have always had great meals, great service and a great value. I disagree with the reviewers who said the meals are overpriced. I do not find this to be the case at all compared to other restaurant options in the area. There are an extraordinary number of fine restaurants in Hilton Head but Michael Anthony's is one of the best without a doubt.

We ate here on Friday Ocotber 5th and had a good meal. Our server was very friendly and professional. The food was well prepared but based on the other reviews we expected a bit more. My wife had salmon which was cooked perfectly. I had veal and the sauce overwhlemed the suttle flavors of the veal. Mine was good not great. For the price of the meals we expected a higher level of quality and taste. Other restaurants on the island are every bit as good or better and do not charge as much. Sorry to say they didn't overwhelm.
