Michael Anthony's Cucina Italiana
One of the most special experiences of our life - we were treated like royalty and wondered if they had thought we were someone important - however, we did not dissuade them and chose to enjoy every moment of our special evening. We will be seeing you again. Doug Smith
Always a wonderful meal and a great dining experience.
Nice restaurant, menu didn’t have a lot of our Italian favorites and was pretty salty.
My go-to restaurant for classic Italian cuisine. Moderately priced with a terrific wine list.
one of the best
Hard to decidewhat veal or pasts to orer
We always look forward to Michael Anthony’s when we return to HHI. It was a very pleasant surprise to have Kat as our server. The food is always delicious. Looking forward to returning again this July.
Very warm and friendly atmosphere when we arrived. Lovely decor. We were seated next to the Chef's cooking station upstairs and there was a Chef's Table dinner going on. It was a delightful evening watching him prepare dinner and he engaged with us as well even though we weren't a part of the group. Service was excellent and when I couldn't decide between two items the waiter suggested he do 1/2 of each. The special ravioli was delish and loved the Bolognese as well. My friend had the meatball entree and loved it too. I bought two bottles of the wonderful Chianti the "som" recommended. Definately going back.
We have been promising ourselves to try Michael Anthony's for years but somehow never got around to it. Well, we finally did and are regretting the lost time! What a wonderful meal. My husband had the Veal Milanese and I had the Tagliatelle Neri. Both were amazing and the service was excellent. We will definitely be back!
As usual, Michael Anthony’s did not disappoint. The ambiance, the service, and the food are always top notch at one of our favorite restaurants.
Very good ,great service. Would have liked some not so fancy regular Italian dishes.
good quality food and great service. Sat upstairs by the food prep station for private tasting and was taken care of during the night
great value for the dollar. staff was excellent.all the buttons for an outstanding evening were pushed!!
the food was great as usual. the young asst waiter was lovely. however our server was abrupt and disinterested; he never mentioned the specials. we waited about half hour between salad and main course and we had to remind him. this was already a late reservation.
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Great service and excellent food. It was a lovely evening.
Valentine’s Day dinner. Food was certainly good, a bit on the high side, price wise for what you get. Took quite a while to get our check, but overall a nice experience.
Great place all around. We always go there for Valentine's Day and have never been let down. The quality of food and service is outstanding. Chef Trey is a great guy and knows his stuff. If looking for a less expensive way to eat there, I suggest the early bird special. Well worth it.
Always a wonderful evening at Michael Anthony’s !!!!
Wonderful dinner, we are local and haven’t enjoyed an evening service so much!
This was a reservation made for parents to enjoy valentines occasion. Everyone from hostess helping to locate them at perfect table, to staff ensuring they had a great experience was excellent!
Just a quiet dinner with a friend. She was craving a specific dish she had in the past but it wasn’t on the menu this time. That didn’t stop the staff from doing everything to replicate it to her liking. They went out of their way to make sure it was a great meal/experience. Wonderful service, amazing food. Will definitely dine here again.
May be the best Italian restaurant on the island..At least in winter...
Our meal was excellent. Husband & I both had the prix fixe dinner for restaurant week. We both had the stuffed pork chop and tiramisu - different app’s. All were wonderful. We’ve eaten here many times and will be back again. Highly recommend.
Never had a bad meal here. All 4 of us really enjoyed our choices. This is one of the best places to eat on HHI.
The level was “energetic” when we were there but it was a Friday evening of Restaurant Week so we expected that. Still our favorite restaurant on Hilton Head...food is always excellent and service is beyond compare. If you are on this island, treat yourself to a meal at Michael Anthony’s.
Visited during Restaurant Week on the island. Very tasty. Great service. Request a booth or preferred seating in advance. Very friendly staff.
Consistently a fantastic dining experience! New dishes, old favorites, food always comes out warm with a beautiful presentation. Memorable flavors in every dish! Accommodate special dietary needs with ease. You will never be disappointed!
Sometimes the service is a bit too rushed in the very beginning when you sit down but that's better than being forgotten. And after the 1st 2 minutes the service is impeccable, timed properly. The food? No better Italian on the Island. Absolutely the very best quality, hand made pasta's, always a local caught fish special which of course changes seasonally. An incredible wine listing but also great crafted cocktails for everyone's tastes from strong drinks to new inventive new choices that are quite unique. Each night there is another fresh Ravioli dish which is never on the menu. Please try this and you will be very happy!
Restaurant Week provided us with a chance to order outside if our usual favorites. The catch if the day was delicious. Green beans a bit over cooked, but the one vegetable that I don’t mind that way. While served with salty crispy fingerling potatoes, I think some pasta with the unique sauce may have been a better choice.
Michael Anthony's is a must for us when we visit Hilton Head. Great food prepared well and beautifully presented. The service was excellent and the server (Chris) was very knowledgeable and helpful in making selections. I would have preferred to sit in the main part of the restaurant instead of in the market area, however during restaurant week we understood it would be crowded.
Food is consistently excellent. Service outstanding. They are very accommodating to seating and menu options . If you want to have a conversation without raising your voice, opt for upstairs. Bar area and restaurant on lower level is buzzing.
Outstanding as always
For the most part an excellent experience although the pork chop was a little overdone.
We had a lovely dinner at Michael Anthony's with friends. I had the grouper special - delicious! The table had the beet salad, panzella salad and carpaccio as appetizers. All were great. The service was attentive but not intrusive. We were seated upstairs; I prefer the downstairs for atmosphere but it was fine. We will definitely be back. Always consistently good!
Fabulous! Lucy was a terrific server. Menu is wonderful!
Always a favorite spot on the Island. We usually save it for our last night as a way to celebrate our vacation there.
My husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary at Michael Anthony’s and were overwhelmed with all aspects of our evening. The ambiance was perfect, our server (Juan) was so charismatic and charming, and the food was truly amazing. I would highly recommend Michael Anthony’s if you are looking for an evening feeling like you are the only patrons there... because that is the way this wonderful restaurant wants you to feel.
Just missed restaurant week, unfortunately, but we had a great meal just the same. Veal medallions stuff with spinach and fontina, and my wife had chicken. I had a cosmo that was good, and our server Chris was personable, liked working at the restaurant, and checked on us several times during out meal. Glad we had this as our last night in Hilton Head.
No doubt the finest Italian restaurant on the Island. Great atmosphere, superior service and outstanding food! Took a friend who has traveled the world and has dined at some of the finest venues in several countries. She rated Michael Anthony's as on of the best.
