We are truly heart broken that there is not one of these by us in South Florida. By far, the best meal we have ever had. Every dish we ordered was exploding with heavenly flavors. We even ordered another to take home. We highly recommend this place o anyone who comes to Hilton Head!!!

Service, ambiance, service--all top notch. Upscale. Business casual including nice shorts would fit best. Very accommodating on modifying their special drinks and menu items. Crab cakes for my spouse and my order of their "special chicken" with local mushrooms over pasta with a light cream sauce were excellent. Lucy, out server, was attentive and polite without being overbearing. Been here before and we will return. Suggest that if you take your family, children should be well behaved. Unruliness would dampen the atmosphere for other diners. Not fast food but service can be relatively quick if you want or you can linger.

We had early reservation and were squeezed into another foursome with an empty dining room. Guess they were trying to get some turns out of these tables!

Knowledge of food and wine by server was outstanding. Food was good, not remarkable, and the wine list, steep and wide.

Overall, not a great value, but will give another chance.

Can't go wrong. Food is wonderful and great wine list. The on site market is also a great place to buy goods they use in their dishes.

This place is a must! Fountain Spa had their annual Christmas party at Michael Anthony's and all of us had a wonderful time. The service is exceptional, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is warm and inviting!! They've been around for 15 years and they remain the best Italian restaurant on the island. Make a reservation, you will be happy you did.
