Special Place

Very romantic setting and excellent food. Only place I know outside of Austin and San Antonio to go for outstanding cuisine. Designed like an Italian Tuscan villa behind a vineyard with fountains and gardens. I had the Osso Bucco and my wife a steak. Red wine to complement the meal.

The people here are always friendly, the Tuscan look of the place is pretty and the food is good. My only complaint is that over the last year the times they are open and closed are all iver the map.

First I would like to specify that I have lived/ worked in Northern Italy for quite some time. Lisina's brought me back so many memories from my younger years. Everything about it reminds me of country side Italian trattoria. ( except the HVAC ducts :) ) Excellent food, decent choice of wines, great service, and such comforting ambiance. Nice outdoor...

We have dined here a number of times both as a couple and with a large group. The food has always been amazing. The venue is fabulous. The folks working at the newly renovated bar area are very knowledgeable and friendly about the wines. Which proves to be particularly important - because even with a reservation (which is an absolute... More

Came back from San Marcos the scenic route and went to Trattoria Lisina. Another restaurant from the Mandola family which might be the best one. The grounds are fabulous and the food that I had was great. With another two couples and everyone loved their meals which were all different. I had the chicken and would highly recommend it. Kind...

Mom's weekend away and we all were pleasantly surprised by Trattoria Lisina. As advised - arrived after 5pm to avoid the crowds at the winery next door to find, it very crowded. Purchased a bottle of wine and sat at one of the scattered picnic tables on the lawn. FANTASTIC - the perfect weather did make it so. To dinner... More

Went here for a wedding reception dinner. The food and wine was excellent and the location although out of the way is well worth the visit. The staff were very friendly and courteous if you are in the area do not miss this place.

Went for a business dinner a couple of weeks ago. It's a bit of a drive to get there, but it is in a beautiful spot with hills, vineyards and lovely grounds. The food was very good all around, with the antipasto plate, asparagus salad being highlights among the appetizers. My grilled lamb was excellent. It was grilled over wood... More

We visited this restaurant while vacationing in Wimberley, Texas. My wife and I had been there previously for lunch and knew it to be a nice-looking restaurant in an attractive location. Our previous trip was nice, and we were pleased. This time, however, we were blown away with the quality of the food and the service. We had a moderately... More
