My wife and I dined here, late on a Monday evening. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. She had the Linguine Carbonara. I had the Zappa d'Pesche. Our server was cordial, prompt and attentive, without being too hovering. This restaurant is relatively small and set back from the road, but worth the trip. We will be back.

They advertise NY/NJ style, and they do not lie! Everything is fresh and home made right down to the tomato sauce. The atmosphere is romantic but relaxed, with soft lighing and cring, not overbearing, service. A good selection of house wines, and really rich creme brulee! Not as expensive as you might think, but not inexpensive. Worth every penny!

If you want an authentic old fashioned Italian dish, this is the place. As a local I can assure you you will not leave hungry and not satisfied with your experience. The service from David and Jill is outstanding. The owners on site are warm and very accommodating.

Ordered the sausage stuffed mushrooms app and the Tuscan grouper. Excellent as was the veal saltimboca and the tortellini pesto with shrimp. Service could have been better. We will definitely try again next time we are in Hilton head....but definitely not if in a hurry.

It all began with our greeting from "5 Star Sally," (I made that up) who said, "You are going to love this food!" I was determined to remain objective, so we ordered a bottle of red from the nice wine list. Then the escargot for an appetizer, which caused me personal public embarrassment ( actually it was my wife who... More

This place is very authentic and brings back the feeling of a Italian restaurant in Italy. This is more of a date night place than a family gathering. The lighting is quite romantic. The food is very good and plenty of choices. Go early and there is a nice early bird 3 course meal you can enjoy at a reasonable... More

Return visit. Chose to order off "restaurant week" menu, which is an excellent deal, provided u like one of the many entree choices. Grouper piccata & veal dish tasty. Glass of wine/app/salad/ dessert included. Service excellent. My only reason for not rating a 5, the place looks like somethg of a time warp...dark & dated.

Just had a great meal at our favorite Italian restaurant on Hilton Head. It's family owned and has been here since 1989 and once you eat here you'll know why. The food is prepared perfectly. We had the three course early bird special which included appetizer, salad, and entree with a glass of wine for $17.95. I had the mussels... More

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY AT THIS PLACE!!!!! The food is absolutely horrible and the service is subpar at best. There were literally no other customers in the restaurant, which should have been the first sign. It was obvious that I didn't like my food; I had the linguini and meatballs, but our server had the audacity to... More

Stellini is a diamond in the rough. The decor is not great. It is very dated and in need of a major remodel. The food is very good. The early bird deal is very good. We tried the early bird at Flora's, and it was good, but Stellini's was much better. The service was very good.
