We had a prime time SaturdayWe had a prime time Saturday night dinner with excellent service, menu and food preparation on a Wednesday evening 6:30PM meal. Food and service are ALWAYS good at Ombra. Jeff was our waiter who was right on with all recommendations.
The veal with Morel mushrooms and the Sea Bass were great specials.
Will be back, again.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Meal and ServiceGreat meal to end our stay on Hilton Head. More expensive then other meals but quality of the meals and the service was worth it. Favorite appetizer was Tuna Carpaccio, Favorite meals were the Veal Morels and the Linguine Mediterranean. For dessert the La Bombata di Cioccolata was outstanding. We will definitely go back.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA New ExperienceWe enjoyed our 1st experience at Ombra Cucina Rustica and would definitely go back. Marshall, our waiter did a great job and we would ask for him again. I was a little dissappointed that the water wasnt filtered and had a strange taste. I felt that a restaurant of this caliber should at least serve filtered water. We all shared a portion of tiramisu and thought it was the best we had had.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem on Hilton Head IslandSome of the best food on Hilton Head Island.

Friends of our traveling to Naples, Fl. joined us for dinner at Ombra. The dinner, service and ambiance were perfect.
All four of us tried the evening specials. They were all done to perfection with accompanying sauces that really enhanced the flavors. The fresh Halibut was the evening winner followed closely by the veal scaloppini in Morel mushroom sauce.
Our visitors were impressed and our fifth dinner at Ombra did not disappoint.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. I had the Mediterranean linguine, which was loaded with clams, mussels, shrimp, fish, and octopus, and my wife had the fish special. Both were outstanding. Our waiter was very attentive and even prepared a special blend of herbs, cheeses, and oil at our table for our bread. Easily the best Italian I've had on the island in my 25 years of vacationing there.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good...will go back andVery good...will go back and have recomended already to others.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband ordered the vealMy husband ordered the veal scallopini which was very good. I had the turbot over cartelized onions with a lovely light wine sauce. It was a special and it was exceptional. So much so that I not only ate it all (something I never do) but begrudgingly gave my husband several bites because he too thought it was so special. The desserts were excellent as well. Will definitely be back!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and the service wasThe food and the service was great, but it really was noisy!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat an outstanding restaurant.What an outstanding restaurant.

We made a reservation and were seated right away. It was relatively quiet when we arrived, but the business really picked up by the time we left. There were many groups dining together. We both enjoyed the food and found it to be reasonably priced as far as good Italian goes. The service was very attentive. Not my favorite Italian restaurant (can't find one in the south - nothing like what's up in NY), but good nonetheless.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWill be added to the listWill be added to the list of places we always go when we are in town.

Having said that, we had a good meal and great service. We'll probably return. But, we miss Antonio's ambiance.1/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
