Manny our waiter did a good job but could have been more attentive. Place was packed so maybe assigned too many tables. Osso Bucco special was excellent as was the halibut. Pear and Gorgonzola salad was plentiful and tasty. Odd for an Italian restaurant that does not offer a Caesar salad.

Everything was wonderful. Prompt service and wait staff (Eddie) was great. We had the restaurant week menu and it was prepared very well. I've had other restaurant week menu's in the past at other restaurants and you could tell the meal was prepared by temporary chefs who didn't take pride in their food. Everything at Ombra was great!!!

Very well prepared food from apps to dessert. We went for restaurant week. Seafood salad appetizer portions were very ample. Aso Bucco was outstanding. My husband was a little disappointed in his veal dish as it was covered with vegetables, and he's not a vege lover, but the veal was great. Profiteroles excellent with a rich chocolate sauce. Waiter was attentive, but not overbearing.

The osso bucco was absolutely scrumptious and the creamy risotto to die for! The seafood salad was enough to be a meal and was so fresh and tender. A simple dressing allowed the seafood to shine! The Italian wine suggested was a perfect pairing. Just let the waiter know your taste and recommendations are great! Had to take most of my entree home (did not mind as reheated made a wonderful lunch) since I had to leave room for the scrumptious dessert! Definitely will return!

I love this restaurant and the Restaurant Week menu cut no corners in offering some of the best that Ombra has to offer. I was truly grateful that the Osso Buco was on the menu and it was magnificent. You just can't go wrong with the menu here.

Outstanding! We been here twice before and the food and service was very good, but this year when we returned to Hilton Head and had dinner the service was really outstanding. There was four of us and we ordered different items and all were excellent. Would recommend the lobster bisque& veal scallopini

Easily the best Italian restaurant on Hilton Head! My husband enjoyed osso bucco with risotto and I ordered wild Alaskan salmon. Generous portions, and beyond delicious! Add the wine list, the impeccable service tonight with Manuel, the warm Italian atmosphere, even the busboys are polished and attentive! Nothing lacks here, and after an amazing and cozy dinner (omg the bread) came a limoncello dessert like no other. Just saying, I know quality and Ombra is the best of any restaurant on Hilton Head!

This was my 3rd time dining here...our waiter was good but very “curt” and didn’t seem very engaged. We were here for my mother’s 83rd birthday dinner. We never got his name. We expected more, but it won’t keep us from dining here again. Our meal was good, not great. Wondering why a nice Italian restaurant doesn’t grate fresh parmesan cheese?

WE used to think Ombra was our favorite restaurant on HHI. Now we know its our favorite restaurant period. Always quality ingredients and always a flavorful experience. The Tuna capaccio was exquisite and the gnocchi is always spectacular. Service is expert in describing the flavors and keeping the meal and wine flowing.
