This was our first time to Luisa's. From our hostess to our waitress we were treated extremely well. I needed the gluten free menu, and they went out of their way to assist me. Our meal was very good, and the staff was right there any time we needed something. It's wonderful to have a healthy option in Chestertown for... More

We tried this place today for the first time (lunch). It was fabulous! I had the spaghetti with marinara sauce and the sauce was out of this world. I just had to try dessert and go the coconut custard pie. The slice was huge and it was one of the best coconut custard pies I've had in a long time.... More

Interesting layout. First time there. There is the main dining room then on your way in is an area to the left for takeout. Some plain tables and chairs for waiting or eating without the tablecloth service. The order was prepared promptly and packed securely for transit. The meal itself was fairly middle of the road from my experience. I... More

Luisa's new space has put a fresh look on wonderful food and a fine staff. The new space looks great! Food is fantastic as always. Each meals genuinely seems prepared with care and you're never left waiting for any time that seems unreasonable to achieve that. The staff is friendly and warm and informed about the food they serve.

Love the little dining area for take out or families with little ones. Love the main dining area which is exactly the right level of casual. But best of all.... love... More

My husband I went there for dinner and will definitely go back. My husband started with a house chianti which was good. They served us bread with seasoned olive oil and grated parm which was good although the rolls seemed a bit tired like they sat out for hours and were barely warm, but I was super hungry and they...
