This has been our 'last night on HHI' meal for the last 10 years or so, and it never fails to be a great one. You will get great housemade pasta, terrific specials - like a recent spaghetti with crab and vegetables that was outstanding - always a fresh fish entree, and excellent desserts. The bar is excellent and the wine list outstanding. This is not typical Italian - i.e. veal parm - but well thought out and prepared Italian food. It is more expensive than many of the places you can eat on HHI, but it is not a typical HHI experience either. If you want a great value, however, I would recommend their pre-6 PM fixed price dinner - this past weekend was $21.00 for a three course meal which features several choices of app, entree and dessert of slightly smaller sized portions - but I can say they were more than satisfying for me. Our family loves dining here and we will be back for sure.

Although the food was very good, the prices were unreasonable compared to the portions (Especially the starters). Everyone who worked there was very nice and helpful, but our waiter only came around once in a while and always seemed to be in a rush.

Our dinner was so exceptional, we returned a few days later with friends who absolutely loved this restaurant. Homemade pastas are incredible as are the specials. Great wine list and deserts as well.

Fabulous atmosphere, comfortable seating, attentive staff, so many choices on the early bird menu that it was difficult to choose. I am still talking about the carpaccio appetizer, crab/spaghetti entree and the just right portion of tiramisu ...all of it scrumptious! Dined with friends before the theater and it was the perfect beginning to a great night! Lucky to be a local so we can return often...visitors should not miss this truly terrific and truly Italian dining on Hilton Head Island!

One of the best! The food was fabulous, the atmosphere was great and our waiter, Finnie, was superb! We enjoyed every course, the wine was reasonably priced, and the cappuccino was wonderful. We will definitely return and will request Finnie as our server.
