Great Food

Their food is excellent. A little pricy but so good. Owners from Italy and the taste is wonderful! Come to Chestertown for a real taste of Italy..

A shopping center Italian type restaurant that relocated in the center to a stand alone location. They did a wonderful job in updating the appearance from the old spot to the new. Design is more contemporary, crisp and clean yet a bit of the old world flavor in its appearance. Food was okay before, even better now for the most... More

My husband and I found this to be a real gem in Chestertown, MD. Fine Italian food, nice atmosphere, and great friendly staff. Love this place. Will come back again with more family members.

Every trip to Luisa's is better than the last. The specials are incredible, but items on the everyday menu are always fresh and good. The new location, just on Rte 213 north of town, offers more seating in a nicer atmosphere and it has a new pizza oven (wood fired) means the pizza took a giant leap to gourmet status.... More

Luisa's, which finally moved to a much more beautiful spot, has the same menu, same food, same wine list, all very very good things. It's like the best part of Luisa's survived the move, and there's more ambience. It's not a place that tourists will find easily as it's driving distance from downtown (right off 213 in the Redner's shopping... More

My wife and I had a late lunch and so were not sure how hungry we would be for dinner. But, we were glad that we went to Luisa’s. The waitress was happy to let us share a Caesar salad and maybe that revived our appetites because we had tortellini and Chicken Parmagania and both were delicious. The restaurant is... More

Luisa's is working very hard to present a wonderful assortment of dinner offerings that are fresh and incorporate lots of locally produced foods. They're doing a great job. Atmosphere is very casual and laid back and the place is usually full of lively diners.

I used to go for Antipasto to the old Luisa's but the new one, with the new charcoal oven pizza, is great, open, great bar (the guy from the Imperial prepares there his famous libations) and the ambiance is good, for friends, family, or colleagues, it's pleasant and food delivers. Share the tiramisu though, it's big.

Perhaps I'm spoiled dining out for Italian weekly in the northeast (nj, ny and ct) but I found everything about this meal to be average. The ambiance is adequate, but it can't seem to decide between quaint, contemporary or strip mall pizza. The service was friendly, however with only 3 tables, our server switched up our meal with the table... More
