This chef and restaurant is one of the best I've been anywhere. Never had a bad meal or experience with the food or staff. Had the bronzino fish special and it was excellent. My wife had the veal medallions and was also excellent. They offered some Lemoncello to close the night and it's a great experience

Finally a restaurant on Hilton Head worth revisiting!! A birthday dinner for 8 that left everyone well fed and no one iota dissatisfied! We return to HHI annually and this will definitely be our #1 restaurant to visit. Highly recommend the lemon sorbet for dessert - best I've had since Italy!

First timers to Hilton Head, and the restaurant was recommended by friends who are owners. Great from start to finish. A cozy room layout, polished staff, great cocktails, and wonderful meal. I consider myself pretty expert in brick chicken (love it) and this was perfect, as was the tuna carpaccio and the calamari. Our handsome and charming waiter Benjamin Bratt,... More

The food was very good and well prepared; the service was slow so expect to spend a long time there. This is not necessarily a bad thing but if you are in a hurry then this is not the place for you. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.

My wife an I like to try restaurant's early dining menus. We had an exceptional 3 course dinner at Ombra tonight. We argued about who had the best entrée--her veal was perfect and I don't believe I have had sea bass better prepared. Salads were innovated and dessert just enough. Service was impeccable.

Of all the Italian restaurants that I have dined at, Ombra is undoubtedly the best in all aspects: ambiance, service, and food. First was prosciutto with mozzarella and calamari. Second course was ravioli and penne (both half orders which many other places don't offer). Entrees were the Filetto Di Vitello and the halibut. For dessert we had the cannoli, bombato,... More

The gnocchi Gorgonzola was the best I've ever had. Saved an airfare to Rome by eating here! Veal scaloppine with lemon and capers was perfectly cooked. Our Mike was very knowledgable and attentive without being intrusive.

Having arrived at OMBRA Cucina Rustica on a very busy early Saturday evening only to discover that Open Tabl had booked our reservation for the following week, we were nevertheless, accommodated with a very good table and congenial good humour.

We always have a great time at Ombra! I'm especially impressed with the service and incredible accommodations at probably one of the busiest times of the year- The Heritage Golf Tournament. We didn't have reservations (last minute opportunity to get out without the kids) but no problem... Allison at the front made sure to find us a table and set... More
