OMBRA Cucina Italiana
Great restaurant!! Food and service both excellent. Visiting Hilton Head and went back for a second meal it was that good!! Highly recommended!!
Outstanding food. Everything is made fresh daily. Service was very good and accommodating
We very much enjoyed OMBRA. Alex our server was very good. Timing was right. The food was excellent. Scallops, ravioli, salmon, veal scallopini and chocolate bread pudding. Alex made good recommendations. Enjoyable and excellent!
Had the carpaccio di manzo, the veal scalopine with the Acrobat pinot noir, and the tiramisu. All were very good.
Wonderful find on a recent visit to Hilton Head. Italian food the way it was intended. Our son in law is Italian and he would love the food. Living in DC and traveling frequently to Philadelphia and NYC makes my expectations high for Italian food; Ombré was above my expectations. No disappointments!
Ned is the best waiter. We love the food and service as they make you feel like family.
Our favorite Italian restaurant on Hilton Head Island, OMBRA Cucina always serves creative meals made with the freshest ingredients. The service is always outstanding. Whether it’s pasta, seafood, veal or chicken you know you’ll be served a luscious meal. The desserts are absolutely divine. Great atmosphere.
We've had dinner here several times. We think the early dining menu is am exceptional value, just be sure to ask your server what plates are a little smaller on this menu. You will not starve, but you should know. Everything was very good, as always,but, I was just disappointed in the panzanella salad. It should have bread NOT croutons. The hard croutons do not absorb the tomato juice or the EVO, should not have any greens just basil.
All the deserts were amazing. Just enough to top off a great meal.
We had a wonderful time, the food was exceptional and Gloria was very nice
Everything was delicious! Will highly recommend to friends and family!
Great food great service!
Continued consistency with Excellent service and food. Never disappointed at Ombra!
We asked for a special table because we were celebrating our anniversary. Table was just ok! Service was not great. We sat and waited for 15 minutes before anyone came over to us and that was only because my husband asked that someone bring us water.
My husband’s food was delicious and mine was good but it was a rocky start to our special evening.
This is best Italian on the Island (or in the area). Have been here numerous times. I was a little disappointed this time with my Spaghetti w white clam sauce; could have used something more.....garlic ? My friend had the Osso Buco and raved about it. The girls both had a mushroom stuffed ravioli that they were crazy about, thought they were going to lick their plates !
The food is delicious. Our server, Anthony, was excellent.
We have eaten at this restaurant many times and it has always been perfect. This time was very different. The food was amazing. We both ordered a starter and they were both delicious. We ordered our entrees and they were also delicious, but this is where the wheels came off. A good while after our pasta dishes were delivered, the waiter brought my husband a new knife which he needed at the beginning of his meal. He also asked us if we would like fresh cracked pepper and grated Parmesan......really.....10 minutes into our meal? A little while later, the bartender came over and cleared our plates and we asked him for one box for our leftovers. We waited another 10 minutes and the bartender brought over some dessert menus, which we declined. After waiting for another 10 minutes, I asked the bartender for our leftovers that he never brought to us as well as our check. Our waiter finally brought the check about 5 minutes later along with our leftovers. If the restaurant was busy, I would have been a little more understanding.....it was a Tuesday night @ 6:45. I presume they simply didn’t have enough wait staff on hand and this caused many delays in all areas. We will not go to this restaurant again. There are far too many great places to eat on Hilton Head Island. If the manager or the waiter had made some sort of restitution for our very prolonged wait.....a free dessert, comped a starter, bought our drinks, etc.....we would definitely go back. It was apparent they don’t take pride in their business ethics or their customers.
Once again a lovely evening enjoying excellent food, wine and service. Look forward to our next visit
We had a fabulous dinner November 26th. Alex, our waiter, was wonderful!! The food was delicious as well‼️ We already made a dinner reservation for December 27 th.
Full discloser.. this is my first bad restaurant review every posted. So, it was pretty bad! Ombra has been one of our favorite Hilton Head restaurants for quite a while. Sadly, our recent experience was quite simply, awful. We had out of town guests for the weekend and had mentioned a couple of times how much we like Ombra and were looking forward to taking them during their stay. Everything from the cocktails, to the bartender who felt the need to come to the table and create an incredibly uncomfortable snarky encounter, to 3 of the entrees that were about a 3 on a scale of 1-10. It was such a disappointing experience. It's understandable to have a bad meal every now and then but having a bartender come to the table and create such an uncomfortable situation is just not cool.
Whether it’s Brady, Manuela or Gloria, service is always perfect. Made to feel at home. Authentic Italian food with interesting salad twists. Ombra achieves what’s the hardest: consistency. Have never had an unacceptable meal or experience. Go and enjoy!
Always enjoy OMBRA when we make our annual pilgrimage to Hilton Head. Great food and service. Seafood fettuccine is delicious and huge. We’ve never had a dish that disappointed.
We had our wedding anniversary dinner here for the second year in a low. Special Time special place. We do go to Ombra on other occasions or non occasions but this restaurant makes any visit a special time.
The food and service were great! Pricing was a little iffy. The appetizer pear salad was delicious but charged $2 extra than the menu price to share it. The wine was good but probably would’ve been cheaper to buy the bottle. And Eddie was a fabulous server with great suggestions! Thank you Eddie! See you next year.
Very attentive service and fabulous food, as always at Ombra!
WE had an excellent meal here. The food was quite good. The ambiance was very nice. We have been before on several occasions and will continue to return when we are in the area.
Brady was an excellent server we had a really good time it was our twins 16th birthday and they loved their food
love this place! We come here often and have never had a bad meal. My only complaint this time was they did not have gluten free pasta so I was limited in my choices. Will keep coming back, wonderful fish dishes also!!
As usual Ombra didn't disappoint. The food was terrific as was expected. My Milinase was the best in HHI.
Their service is always great. No difference this time. Value is outstanding.
Ombra is one of my favorite restaurants! My favorite entree is the Nino Bergese
We visit at least twice when we are on the island. We have not found another restaurant that even comes close to Ombra! John at the bar is awesome! Chef Michael is amazing!
One up the best on Hilton Head service and food is superior
This was our second visit to this restaurant and it is consistently excellent. The food is very well prepared, service was Very good but not overbearing, and the ambience was very pleasant and welcoming. Will definitely be back.
A bit pricey, although food was excellent! Ambience good, loved the curtains
We celebrated our 48 TH wedding anniversary. The service was exceptional. Our entire meal was one of the best we have experienced on Hilton Head. We strongly recommend this restaurant and we have placed it on our go to list!
Truly enjoyed it
We told the waiter and put it on open table it was our 40th anniversary and they did not nor recognize it at all. Very disappointed 😩😩
The food was fabulous. Service was unreal. I was beyond happy!!!
On of our hands down favorite restaurants anywhere and our #1 on Hilton Head. Love John at the bar. He is a food and wine snob and we defer to his judgement and he is always spot on!
