Best food in Chestertown

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... read 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!

I absolutely love this little gem of a restaurant! Food is excellent, service is attentive and efficient and atmosphere is an A+. Chef uses locally grown ingredients which gets my vote every time. Ask for Thresa- she's a fantastic server and you can tell she's a people person. It's hard to find a genuinely friendly server these days but Thresa... More

Luisa's has recently moved from its former storefront location to the site of the now departed bakery cafe near-by. The new digs offer more space and transform the dining experience completely. The menu continues to include all of the expected Italian favorites plus daily specials, some of which take advantage of locally sourced ingredients.

They have done a nice job in a relatively small town, complete with a wood fired pizza oven. It's NOT a franchise, which is a good thing. When you walk in somebody smiles at you and finds you a seat that will always be close to a window at a comfortable table with space around you. It's an Italian restaurant,... More

Went here for dinner the other night, the food is phenomenally good. I have only been here once before, several years ago. Food was good then, and just as good now and their new building provides a much nicer dining experience. The staff was nice, the food extremely good. Had the clams Casino appetizer, could eat that every day. The... More

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
