All of our dishes were average. The food was not bad but not special by any means. Would I go back? Not with all the wonderful restaurants in the area.

If you enjoy the authentic family owned and run neighborhood hangout, this is your place. The staff is warm and friendly, mostly family too. The food is authentic with excellent pizza and pasta choices. This place is the Italian version of "Cheers" for the locals. Great spot for food and atmosphere.

Dinner includes warm garlic bread and a salad for a VERY reasonable price. Generous servings of wine and beer, also reasonably priced. A real find on an island like Hilton Head! The decor is checked table cloths, classic old Italian... More

This place is absolutely amazing! We enjoyed this place more than once on our vacation. Our server, Jamie, is the best. Without a doubt we will be returning in the future!

Very basic, not particularly attractive restaurant. Service was average. Pizza was not bad but we have certainly had better.

I've eaten here quite a few times and work a few minutes away so I go for lunch at least once a week. The lunch specials cannot be beat, there is so much food that I usually have leftovers. They even serve garlic bread with lunch... for around $10 you get a salad, drink, bread and entrée. I got three... More

We were staying at the Westin Resort on Hilton Head Island so we ordered Uncle Peter's Cheese pizza for our last night there. We were told the wait would be an hour to an hour and a half but we got our pizza right around the 30 minute mark. Hot, fresh and delicious! Love the cold cheese they added after... More
