OMBRA Cucina Italiana
Great meal. Nice atmosphere. Helpful wait staff. Outstanding wine selection.
As visitors from out of town, don’t let the location throw you off. When you step inside you are transported to a little slice of Italian heaven. The scallops are to die for, and the pasta isn’t just fresh; it tastes like they just finished making it especially for you. We’ll definitely be back the next time we’re in town!
Anniversary dinner. Always delish! Thanks Michael!
Great food and service
Father’s Day weekend.
I love everything about this restaurant. Our server, Brady, was outstanding, as always. Food is exceptional. Early dining specials are a good deal, regular menu prices are a little high, but the food is so good, I'll always come back. Veal was delicious (although there were not black olives in it, but kalamatas, which are even better), goat cheese and beet salad, and profiteroles. My son had a chicken and sausage entree, and it was fabulous. The expresso was outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Wonderful! Thank you!
We came here because they have gluten free options, and were told that they had run out of gluten free pasta. I was going to leave, but the manager told me that the chef left to buy gluten free pasta nearby!!!! They also brought us Prosecco since we were celebrating a birthday. I’m so glad we stayed and they got gluten free noodles. The sauce was the best I’ve had since living in Jersey. Everything was incredible and the staff were amazing. Next time we visit we will definitely be back.
Great food and service. The Linguine Mediterranean is highly recommended.
server very attentive and accommodating. Halibut and veal chop was excellent.
We visit Ombra whenever we are in the area. It never disappoints. Perfect service paired with thoughtfully prepared dishes.
Impeccable food, service, wine, and ambiance. And always a treat to have Ned as our guide for the evening.
Consistently high quality food, and exceptional servers.
Outstanding as always. Soft shell crabs were delicious.
We look forward to dinner at Ombra each time we return to HHI. As always the food was perfect, and Anthony; our server could not have been better. The entree he suggested to please my fourteen year old dinner mates was a real hit, as was my Roast Veal Tenderloin; along with the wine pairing he suggested! We'll be back in July. Thanks, again!
Great food and service! Anthony was our waiter again and he is very knowledgeable. He helped us with some wonderful Italian wine recommendations
Eddie was our waiter. He was great! Food was great too!! Love to have dinner here each HHI trip!
Consistency is the attraction of this restaurant. Excellent service. Good food quality at relatively reasonable price. One of our favorite restaurants in HHI. Thanks.
Everything from the rosemary bread to the main entree was delicious.
The pasta itself was very good. The sauce was average. The service was exceedingly slow from our waiter, although we were welcomed warmly by staff. The noise level was so high we could not hear each other at our our table. The food was ok, 2 out of 3 of us did not finish our meal, so I felt it was overpriced.
It was our first anniversary and the staff and OMBRA was incredible. From their recommendations to the impeccable service it made for a very special night. We look forward to another visit to try more of their amazing meals.
This is our favorite restaurant. The food is always wonderful as is everything else at Ombra.
The food was pretty good but the rest of the experience was not. The server was nice but seemed inexperienced, uncertain. The hosts were not friendly or welcoming, just seemed to be going through the motions. The decor and behavior of the host was stiff and formal. There were a lot of bvery small children, from infants to preschool - babies crying and children running around. I’ve never been to a fine dining restaurant with so many noisy children. It seemed more like a child’s birthday party than fine dining. Very disappointed with the atmosphere.
We've dined at Ombra many times and were sorry that last week's outing was wholly unremarkable. They were busy, but we were surprised to experience very good service the first half of the time and indifferent service for the final half. We were rushed through a cocktail with the Caprese and Beet salads appearing before we'd finished half of the drink. I've gone back to check the menu and for the life of me I can't remember what we ordered for main courses. They just didn't stand out in flavor or preparation. I assume this was just a bad night for Ombra -- and I certainly hope so as we've enjoyed them before.
Both adult children in town.
The halibut was amazing as always. However, the gnocchi in Gorgonzola cream sauce was disappointing; the chef changed the sauce, and it was t nearly as good as usual. The orecchiette was flavorful but way too al dente. However, they did take it off the bill.
This is one of our favorite restaurants on the island.
Beautiful restaurant, lovely vibe and ambiance. Service was perfect as always. Servers, bartenders, bussers etc..are all top-notch and genuinely interested in your well-being and providing you with the best experience. Sadly, the food was the worst part of the evening. From the appetizers to the main courses, bland was the takeaway. We wanted to love everything about the night but we simply couldn't forget the tasteless meal.
We may revisit one last time in the hope of finally getting what many have said is the best on the island.
Outstanding food, great wine selections, and better service. We had a table in a curtained off area that essentially created a private dining room. Made for a great Birthday celebration.
The service was not up to the usual standards of this restaurant. The food was very good
Great food, great service. Gloria our server was great.
Alex our waiter was incredibly patient and helpful
We ate at a high top in bar area ( our preference ) the bar tenders are very engaged n helpful - just a very nice dinner with excellent flavors n service - our best meal for the week of our visit -
The halibut special was fantastic as was the bolognese. Michael provides dead excellent service and assistance with wine choices. We will be back.
Below average Italian. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. Could not even get my water refilled.
Our waitress, Gloria, was exceptionally efficient, friendly, and well versed on the menu. She went well above the level of service required.
Very pretty restaurant, very good food but extremely expensive.
Food was fabulous! Anthony provided excellent service. Definitely will return!
A lovely experience as always at our favorite spot for our annual Anniversary dinner
The wait staff is tremendous and the food is delicious and extremely well presented
Fever disappointed and have recommended it to many
As always, dinner at Ombra, always feels like a special occasion. Every dish is a delight to the senses especially your taste buds.
Gloria was a great wait staff. Food was very good. Enjoyed the carpaccio salad. Hubby had linguini and clams. Said one of the best meals he had.
