My wife and I were driving trough the Hill Country visiting various Texas Wineries. Our first stop was Duchman Family Winery and after sampling some of there excellent wines we decided to get some lunch at Trattoria Lisina. We did not know much about it, except that it was owned by Damian Mandola and was in a beautiful building. We... More

Dinner on a Friday evening at Trattoria Lisina, preceded by a wine tasting at the adjacent Duchman winery, was thoroughly enjoyable. The service was superb and the food and wine were exceptional. The Osso Buco was outstanding. Despite the fact this place was crowded and some of those dining were exceptionally loud, this was, nevertheless, a wonderful dining experience. Reservations... More

This is a MUST restaurant for anyone who enjoys great food and service. While it isn't inexpensive (think $150+ for a couple), this is one of the best meals my wife and I have enjoyed anywhere in the world! Set in a picturesque setting with a vineyard as a backdrop,in my humble opinion, this restaurant would be a 5 star... More

I have been to this restaurant several times and am impressed with reliably delicious food and friendly service. The setting, dining area and grounds, are lovely and spacious enough that you don't feel crowded even when the place is packed. The food is amazing! The wines are great! Make sure you save room for dessert because they will blow you... More

Our friends have been telling us about this restaurant for a couple of years now and we finally had the opportunity to go there on a spur of the moment long weekend we took to Wimberley, TX. Oh my goodness! We will definitely be back! The food was excellent, the dining atmosphere was spot on, the staff was so helpful... More

While waiting for a local winery to open for tours, my wife and I had a conversation with a gentleman from the area. He gave some very good recommendations on wineries to visit, but the best bit of advice was for us to visit Trattoria Lisina in Driftwood. Since we had no plans for lunch, we decided to give it...

This is one of our "go to" restaurants only a few miles from our house. It is a great place to take friends, family and business associates because they never fail to amaze on all levels--ambiance, food, service and wine list (Italian). We (or any of our guests) have NEVER had a bad meal here! The site makes most of... More

I could go on and on about the facility, service and food. Trattoria Lisina has it all. The facility and grounds are a photo setting. The staff from the hostess to the waiter were extremely attentive. The food ranks up with some of the best Italian I have ever tasted.

We ate at the Trattoria Lisina last Saturday to celebrate our daughter's and grandson's birthdays. Having never been there, I was mesmerized by the beautiful approach to the restaurant. Reminded me of being in the wine country in California. Our daughter had been there before, and she prepared us for the great cuisine. I had the Osso Buco and it... More
