Always a Great Experience

We visit Chestertown several times each year (family) and always have a meal or three at Luisa's. The food is great... closely held family business. Love the staff there. Their Italian dishes are really good. Prices are very reasonable and the physical layout is very nice. Well done... read more

We went on a Tuesday nite and were surprised to see it packed! Something was going on....but they gave us a table in the Takeout waiting area which was fine. Wonderful crab soup, but May isn't the best time to order Caprese salad! The food has always been very good, and I much prefer their new digs!

While visiting our daughter and her family, she recommended this restaurant for dinner. There were 6 of us, and it was a busy Friday night. No reservation but we were seated fairly quickly without it. Very pleasant server. Entrees ranged from pizza to tortellini, Rock Fish with Crab Imperial and they were all great. Reasonable prices and large portions. The... More

I will tell you straight up. I have lived in C-town for almost three years and hate that there isn't really any really nice places to eat here. I used to HATE the mention of going to Luisa's. When my wife would say lets get Luisa's to go, I would tell her to stop by McDonalds and get me something... More

Very good straight forward Italian food. We come down to Chestertown from Brooklyn about 4-5 times a year to visit my parents, and we have been to every restaurant in Chestertown/Kent County. I would rate Luisa's as the best - very reliably good. They moved from a space in the adjacent strip mall to a free-standing building that used to... More

We sat at the bar and had excellent service from Debbie the bartender! The pizza arrived in no time,was hot, and delicious (and I am very particular when it comes to pizza!) We have every intention of returning. I just wish they would deliver to Baltimore, ha!
