Michael Anthony’s Market Cafe, a Great Local Restaurant and One-Stop Culinary Destination

Michael Anthony's on Hilton Head is known for its classic Italian cuisine, featuring dishes such as pasta, seafood, chicken, and veal. The restaurant offers a cozy, intimate atmosphere, and many customers have praised the restaurant for its exceptional service and attention to detail. The Market Cafe at Michael Anthony’s Cucina Italiana is next to the main restaurant. It really delivers as a one-stop culinary destination. It brings the same great service, food, and quality as its sister restaurant but is a cozier more intimate space across the breezeway. It has more of a relaxed trattoria ambiance highlighted with candles and a pleasingly less expensive but equally delicious menu. 

The menu offers delicious sandwiches, pizza, salads, pasta, and smaller portions of meat and seafood dishes. A main course can be complemented by tasty appetizers like meatballs or arancini. The main dishes are about $20 each. They have a great happy hour menu where you can try many different dishes and drinks. There is also a super lunch menu, Italian coffees, and a full bar. On the way out, make sure to investigate the Italian specialty freezers with carefully curated specialty foods including homemade sauces, pasta, desserts, meats, and cheeses to take home. Birthdays and anniversaries are celebrated with a glass of wine and a dessert if you like, making it a go-to for special occasions. 

The Market Cafe has top reviews, and we give it a full 5-stars! It is a quick 20-minute drive from the Hilton Head Island bridge making it a good island or Bluffton option. The Lowcountry has so many wonderful restaurants but this is a top one to check out for locals and visitors alike. The address is 37 New Orleans Road on Hilton Head. Check it out, we know you will enjoy it.
