“Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

What a wonderful meal we enjoyed at Michael Anthony's! We had previously taken a cooking class and expected the restaurant to be good, but it exceeded our expectations. The atmosphere was lovely and free of the tourist-y feel of many of the restaurants at Hilton Head. We cherished an adult environment with few children in attendance. All of our meals were flavorful, fresh and fabulous. This restaurant clearly is attentive to detail and focused on creating a wonderful dining experience. We will definitely return.

“Outstanding Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We hadn't been here in 4 years and thought it was over priced for the food. This time, while it remains pricey the food was outstanding and the service attentive. It was also not as crowded as last time and fewer children in attendance. The half-portion pastas allowed me to enjoy 3 courses.

“Vacation week”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We arrived early for our reservation. The hostess said to wait at the bar. She apparently forgot us until we asked. She then seated us in a back room with no other guests. The serving of the food was rushed.

“A Fine Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Whenever we come to Hilton Head it's a must to eat at Michael Anthony's Cucina Italiana Restaurant located at 37 New Orleans Road, Hilton Head, SC. 843-785-6272. I suggest making reservations ahead of time. We were six for dinner last night and we all enjoyed our dinner very much. We had excellent service. The staff is friendly and accommodating. If you want delicious Italian food give this restaurant a try. You won't be disappointed

“Very nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We came to dinner blindly. No one recommended it. The ambiance was perfect, not too large a we could keep a conversation without raising our voice. The food was homemade, very Italian and at the end they brought us a lemoncello that tasted better than the one we bought in Italy. They also have a very elegant cookbook with all their receipts including their lemoncello. We would like to go back on our next trip to Hilton Head.
