Food is always excellent. The calamari is the best. Lightly battered, sweet and tender. The Halibut special was wonderful. As was the eggplant. We try something different everytime. Little extras like a glass of prosecco and a tasty apple bite to cleanse the pallet😋 Very laid-back. Never rushed

Shrimp and scallops in a lobster cream sauce over linguine - Excellent! But the best thing at this restaurant? Customer service. They work together as a team anticipating the patrons needs. The nest Italian restaurant on the island.

Our most disappointing meal during our Hilton Head vacation. The restaurant, like many others, is in a shopping mall; outdoor tables look at the parking lot. Inside was very noisy (we were seated right next to a loud, large party despite many empty tables) and the decor is dated. Prices are high and the food was o.k. We asked for one sparkling water and were brought a large bottle of Pelligrino (and charged accordingly). I asked about getting a half order of a pasta and was told 'the chef doesn't like to do that.' While my mushroom ravioli was supposed to have truffles, you couldn't taste them (nor the ravioli because it was so smothered in sauce). Overall a very disappointing meal.

Might not always be so quiet as when we were there, because it was slow, but the service and food was great. Nice selection of wines from very modest to superior. Had a terrific Montepulcian for $30. Caprese salad was terrific, so were the pasta mains, plus a wonderful chocolate dessert to end the evening. Well worth a visit.

It was our first time dining there and it won't be our last ! The restaurant is lovely with several murals and a hammered copper feature wall behind the bar.
The service is impeccable and the menu varied. A sample of prosecco and an enticing bite from the chef was a nice touch and much appreciated. Our group enjoyed Caesar salads, steak, Shrimp Scampi and the Linguini a Mare and the homemade pasta is wonderful.
We can't recommend it highly enough !

Excellent! Dined in wine cellar (room). Only four tables. Excellent food and service. Wonderful freshly baked bread served with hummus and butter. It is pricey, but you are on Hilton Head Island. To be expected. Upon being seated, guests are greeted with a complimentary flute of champagne. Nice touch. This was our second visit. We will return.

As good as it was the last time I was there which was at least 3 years ago. Lena was an excellent server. The seafood and pasta were spectacular. My wife loved the ravioli di spinaci. Champagne brought out when we arrived. Not very crowded and therefore was quiet.

Food tasted good. Cooked well. Good presentation but could have been little warmer/hotter for my liking. I tasted my date’s fish ( she had the special: crab stuffed fish , forget what type fish) I thought it a little over cooked. However, my date was pleased. I was hoping for a little more “ambience” as it was a “Valentines Day” date a day early as I had to work on Valentine’s Day. It was fairly empty as I expected because it was a Wednesday night and the day before Valentines. I’m sure they were much busier Thursday night. We drove from Savannah so I guess I was expecting a little more pizazz? Not sure I’d make the trip again to dine there specifically but if you’re in the area I recommend it if you’re looking for good Italian food. What saved the night, for me any how, was our server(s) they were personable, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Forgive me for not remembering their names (I might of had a little too much vino with dinner)

The service was outstanding. Dominick was personable and yet always professional. We each had a different entree and all enjoyed the three courses. (we participated in Hilton Head’s Restaurant Week) It’s hard to believe while you’re dining that you’re in a strip shopping center.
Absolutely recommend this restaurant.

This is one of our favorite restaurants on Hilton Head Island and a bit of a hidden gem! The owner and the servers are all so genuinely kind and accommodating. They always remember us and treat us special when we are there. Their homemade pasta is to die for! Their specials are amazing! The bread, wine, salads, desserts...everything is top notch and of consistent quality time and again. Don't miss this restaurant when you are in Hilton Head, especially if you love homemade Italian food!

Despite very limited seating (all diners were seated in the bar area due to a renovation of the main dining room), we still very much enjoyed our dinner.

We really enjoyed our New Years Eve dinner. The best part was that we had outstanding service. Our server was attentive, efficient and very friendly. We interacted with other staff as well throughout the meal (delivering food and offering Parmesan cheese, etc) and they were equally great. The food was very good. We would definitely come back here for a special occasion.

Second annual New Year's Eve dinner. Amazing and honestly our entire experience both times has been awesome. This is REAL Italian and the wine list is impeccable. Dominique has been our waiter both times and is simply fantastic. Funny, appropriate, professional and makes each table feel as if you are the only customer of his.

You must try the Ice Sculpture!
