Michael Anthony's Cucina Italiana Ratings and Reviews
We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor ...
We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It was fabulous from the time we had a drink at the bar to appetizers (antipasto with cheese and meats, meatballs), main entrees (pasta with fresh crab, stuffed pork chop, pasta with cacicavalli cheese and butter and dessert (tiramisu and vanilla gelato). Very professional staff. We had Lucy and Nicki.

The specials were wonderful...the homemade pasta with a slow cooked filet mignon tomato sauce was exceptional, beets and salads all very well done. The best manhattan but the worst margarita ever. Ambiance was very nice, probably the nicest in HH. Overall, good food, nice ambiance and good service.

What really stands out about our experience was the great service. I mentioned this was our anniversary, and they congratulated us when we initially checked in. Although very pricey, the food was outstanding, and complimented by excellent presentation. Try the gelato for dessert; you won't be disappointed!

Absolutely fantastic! Food was wonderful. Incredible flavor. Recommendations were excellent. Family of five, with each of us having something different. Everyone was satisfied. Service was provided by Lucy, who treated us like one of the family. Dessert was exceptional. Try the Chocolate Cake and Tiramisu. They were able to match wine perfectly from a specific region and grape. It was my wife's birthday, and they helped make it an exceptional evening.

The food was excellent; the pasta was made from scratch. They didn't have a children's menu, so that might be a deterrent for some families with younger children. This is an expensive restaurant, but we thought our food was excellent! We would definitely eat here again the next time we're in Hilton Head.

We've dined here before and looked forward to our return. The staff is wonderful, very personable and pleasant. Ian was a gem. It's a lovely place to dine in Hilton Head, well appointed, quiet (in a good way) and a fantastic menu. It's our Go To restaurant when we are in the area.

Excellent Italian! Found this spot 3 years ago & it is now on our "must do" list when in Hilton Head. Knowledgeable staff. Great wine list. I had the Veal Scaloppini with lemon & capers & my husband had the Osso Buco special. Wonderful experience!

Food was great. There was a chef tasting special that night that included a choice appetizer/salad, entree and dessert. All three were excellent. At first we thought the portions were way to small but after finishing our dessert we found it to be the perfect amount of food. We will definitely be back.

I would put Michael Anthony's on my list of "Must Eat Places" whenever I'm in Hilton Head, SC! The food was outstanding from wine, to bread, to salad to pasta and service was spot on. Our waiter PJ was fantastic and you could tell that he wanted us to have a great evening. "Mangiare" as we say.

It was a very good meal, my wife's fish was moist and tasty. The appetizers were all interesting and hard to make a choice, they all seemed so good. The veal chop was moist and tasty and cooked as ordered. Although we did not sit in the market room we have done so before and prefer that atmosphere but it is a place we would go often.

We brought our 3 children which was a mistake . We always take them everywhere..however the staff at restaraunt was not happy about it and rushed us through service. I would go back with adults only. The food was delicious.

Outstanding dinner and wine. I am not usually a fan of a ribeye cut but had the best ribeye of my entire life. Just fabulous. They should add this to the regular menu. Service was terrific as usual. Not inexpensive but a high quality and enjoyable dinner.

we visited with my wife and 3 adult children while on vacation in Hilton Head. The exterior doesn't do the restaurant justice as it is in plaza with a bunch of non descript companies. The food was very good with portions on the smaller side. the staff was extremely helpful with recommendations but was also very attentive and professional. we visited with my wife and 3 adult children while on vacation in Hilton Head. This has been our best dining experience in the past 2 years that we have visited Hilton Head. the atmosphere is very nice and the restaurant is tastefully done. We will certainly visit on our next trip to Hilton Head
