Michael Anthony's Cucina Italiana
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.
Jonathan did a great job as our server. Food was excellent.
Consistently delicious and never disappoints. Incredible management, bartenders and severs. Fantastic marketplace and cooking classes as well. “Sips & Bites” is a great way to enjoy the bar. Call for a reservation now!
Always a pleasure dining at this fabulous restaurant! Never disappoints!
Top quality food and service! Fresh bread was delivered along with hummus shortly after being seated. Vast wine and beer selection as well. We dined during their anniversary week so ended up with a great deal for $18 an entree. Although ala carte, the pasta vijola soup is to die for and a must! The fresh catch was Grouper and is was perfectly prepared. Hubby had the duck which was excellent as well. Will definitely be returning soon!!
We returned to this restaurant for their 18th anniversary week special - and my wife and I were treated nicely, we had two different veal dishes and shared salad and dessert and all dishes were well prepared, nicely sauced and tasty. The service staff was knowledgeable and attentive and because of the anniversary special the price was not extravagant. My only quibble is that I felt the price for wine by the glass was too high. Overall an excellent dining experience.
Very good food, excellent veal dishes and service. Nice ambience.
Dinner with friends for the restaurant’s 18th anniversary. We’re local and there is no shortage of really good Italian food on the island. Excellent meal paced really well. Andres (the new waiter) was there when we needed him and not when we didn’t.
Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants around. A bit pricey, but well worth it for the food and service. Downstairs can be noisy if it's crowded. If you can handle stairs, ask for a table upstairs. We've had fish and meat and pasta and never been disappointed in anything we chose. Enjoy!
Fresh ingredients, the food always taste great, excellent service, good wine list, relaxing and friendly atmosphere
