Nunzio Restaurant + Bar is wowing diners on New Orleans Road on Hilton Head Island. The restaurant opened in summer 2019 and word has spread about this beautiful new upscale eatery.

The restaurant’s owner, Nunzio Patruno, formerly owned the successful New Jersey restaurant Nunzio Ristorante Rustico.

A 1,300 square-foot kitchen is part of the total transformation of 18 New Orleans Road— a former Reebook Crossfit gym—into a restaurant with great ambiance, superior service and delicious food. It has seating for 200 people including a large bar area and two outdoor seating areas.

The restaurant offers wine tastings, happy hour, a nuanced wine list and a menu that hits all price points.

Angelo D. Patruno, Nunzio’s brother, is the chef de cuisine. He was born in the Puglia region of Italy and attended the Culinary Institute of Italy.
