Enjoyed a terrific three course meal with friends on April 20th. Jay, our waiter and sommelier, paired three terrific wines with each course. Comfortable surroundings and fair prices, not cheap but fair. They also have a cooking school and market which we'll have to take advantage of on our next trip. Highly recommended.

Every single part of our experience was fantastic. We corresponded with the loveliest host a few times over the phone and were seated at our favorite table upstairs in their BEAUTIFUL cucina. Our food was on point and the service made us feel so special on our 50th anniversary. Thank you Michael Anthony's!! We will be returning whenever we can.

Food, atmosphere, wine, and service was most pleasant. The early bird was quite worth the deal. You can get a great Italian wine by the glass. The pasta was homemade and fresh. The flavors were wonderful. You can't go wrong here!

We travel to Hilton Head once each year in April, and this has become our favorite restaurant on the island. Each staff member greeted us with Happy Anniversary, and it was nicely done. Very low key, which was nice, and our server presented us each with a glass of Prosecco when we were seated. Fresh bread with a white bean... More

This review is late in coming but Michael Anthony’s celebrated their 15th anniversary back in late January. We joined in their celebration with a complimentary glass of champagne and a menu featuring $15 entrees. There is a reason this restaurant is as popular as ever after 15 years. The staff is one of the best, including their darling manager Ian,... More

What a hidden gem! Sits back off the main road and has no road signage or touristy advertising. So I would've never chosen this place but so thankful the sales team at Marriott Vacation Club comped and recommended it. Hands down the best Gnocchi I've ever had! We were treated to the small plate menu with wine pairing! The staff... More

We stay in Hilton Head two times per year and try some restaurants each time we are here. Since tonight was my birthday, we decided to celebrate by having dinner at Michael Anthony's. The service from our waiter was excellent from helping us select wines to understanding all aspects of the specials being offered this night. The food served to... More

It was my first time in Hilton Head and my husband and I asked for recommendations for dinner spots. Ended up making a reservation at Michael Anthony's and were very happy we did. Our server Nicky was very informative and attentive, without being overly so, and explained specials and popular dishes. Wine and my Bellini were fine. Appetizer was truffle... More
