small but well worth the visit

Well, the food is impeccable. the wait staff is great. Ron ( the waiter) was excellent. He made us feel right at home. The "shrimp difraviolo" was excellent as well as the chianti recommended.

We come to the Eastern Shore 4 or 5 times every fall to enjoy the fine waterfowl hunting available. So when we feel like stepping up a notch for dinner Luisa's is a fine choice. Excellent Italian choices along with many local specialities. Good service and open later than most other establishments especially in winter months. If you want a... More

The place was full on a weeknight in January, so clearly popular with locals. Our dishes (veal marsala and ciopino) were OK but not something to remember. The antipasto appetizer was wonderful and big enough for two with take-home for a second mean. Service was OK. Looks like maybe the wood-fired pizza might have been a better choice for dinner.

We came upon this restaurant by accident but definitely worth going to. We are not locals and had we not been looking for a place to eat as we drove through the parking lot we may not have found it. The exterior lighting is too dim. The sign is not noticeable unless you are looking for it. It was dark... More

We visited Luisa's for dinner and greatly enjoyed the experience. Fine quality Italian cuisine was served at a nice, cozy bar. Noise level was busy but not overwhelming. Prices were good, drinks were well made but what made it standout was our bartender, Debbie, was a delight. She was gruff, but in a playful way, pleasant and knew how to... More

We had the veal parm and veal piccata. My husband had the caprese salad. All were good and reasonably priced.

What a wonderful experience we had at this lovely Italian restaurant! Everything was meticulously clean and well organized. The staff was pleasant, proficient and professional. The food was extremely tasty with ample portions at a very reasonable price. I had the eggplant special served with spinach and my wife had a wood fire pizza with arugula and prosciutto. Both dishes... More

We ordered food from Luisa's to feed 200 people (lacrosse players and their families). The food arrived hot, on time, and was EXCELLENT! Vinny and his team made everything so easy. Very affordable and convenient.
