I have nothing bad I can say about this restaurant. The food is amazing! Customer service is impeccable! Great for a date, family get together, birthday, celebrating of anything or a girlfriend hang out. Great wine list and there is a winery next door! You must try the salted caramel chocolate cake... You won't regret it! You can sit at... More

This was the third time we have visited Trattoria Lisina for dinner and, as usual, the food, service, and ambiance were outstanding. This restaurant has an impressive selection of wine – by the bottle and by the glass – and one cannot go wrong ordering the Mandola Montepulciano. As for my entree, on this occasion I had the Osso Buco,... More

Had 2 wonderful meals here on our last trip to Wimberley, one of them being on our anniversary. The setting is perfect and you could actually believe you were in the Tuscan Hills. Althought not cheap the food is good and the service excellent. We will definitely visit again and I would recommend this highly.

A little piece of Tuscan heaven in the Hill Country! Thanks to our waiter John. His suggestions were spot-on - from appetizers to dessert!! He was attentive wo hovering. The scenic drive, the ambience and the food flavors rounded out our day perfectly!!

This amazing italian restaurant in the middle of nowhere used to be part of the Duchman Family winery. They are no longer part of the same business but its convenient to end a day of wine tasting with a solid meal (and more wine if you are not driving!).

This was our second visit to Trattoria Lisina. Service went beyond expectations. We were a group of 10 and there appeared to be a rehearsal dinner going on as well, but our server, Travis, made sure we had everything we needed. The Caesar salad is big enough to split and the kitchen had no issues with two plates. The Brussels... More

Our family went with two friends of my in-laws. The food was very good, but if you bring kids.. there is not a separate kids menu. They have pasta, sauce, meatballs and pizza. Also plastic cups for kids. There is also a nice play area outside.

Found this place while rambling through the Texas Hill Country and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of both food and service. Trattoria Lisina is co-located with the Duchmann family winery and has an interesting history. Brainchild of Damian Mandola ( of Damian's - Houston fame), the kitchen turns out an amazing array of great Italian dishes. On the expert... More

We return here time after time. The food is always excellent. The staff is very attentive without driving you crazy. The wine selections are great.
