We often eat at Michael Anthony's before a concert or play and have never had a bad meal there. The food is outstanding, and the Early Bird dinner truly is the best food and best early bird value on Hilton Head.

We attended a cooking demonstration at Michael-Anthony's during our trip to Hilton Head in July and it was the absolute highlight of our vacation! The class was fun and informative, and the food was delicious! I made the entire menu for my family when we returned home and, if I do say so myself, it was also amazing. My only regret is that we didn't have time to have an actual dinner at the restaurant. The menu was very tempting! They also have a small Italian store of sorts at the restaurant, so it's worth a stop on your way into Hilton Head to stock up on the best Italian wine and Italian goodies (amazing olives, meats, cheeses, pastas...) for your vacation. As my 2 year old would say...."OH SO YUMMY!!!!"

Due to its' #1 rating we decided to try this place. The first night we were running 10 minutes late and they wouldn't hold our reservation - so be on time. The next night the only thing available was at 5:15pm and they tried to seat us in The Market area of the restuarant where they sell Italian produce. After requesting that we be seated in the main dining room we were accommodated. The service was good and the wine list excellent, including an option of 'flight' which allow you to taste 3 small glasses of wine if you are undecided. For appetizers we had the Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil salad, which was really fresh and tasted out of this world. For the main course we had the special, which was a T-Bone steak served with fresh beefsteak tomatoes and arugula. We requested medium and it was a little overcooked but the flavor was excellent. Also we had the Filet Mignon in a mild gorgonzola and wine reduction sauce - this was excellent also. As a side I tried the homemade pasta with a tomato and basil sauce which was also delicious. For dessert, where to start - they were devine, zablione with fresh fruit - incredible, hazelnut panna cotta with caramelized bananas - devine. Very expensive but worth it for a special treat.

This is our second visit to Michael Anthony's. We first went in March & had a great dining experience. This time, in August, we tried the 'Early Bird Special'. There was a variety of choice & each course was outstanding. Service was attentive, despite the fact that we were 'early birders'!!! Next time we come to Hilton Head, we'll definitely return.

The food was quite good. Our waitress made a couple of suggestions that helped add to a very nice time. The atmosphere was good however the star here is the food and the service.
