This is always on our go to list when we are in the Austin area. It is about 30 minutes from Austin and worth the drive. We have never been dissappointed by any of the specials or menu offered items. If the food alone is not enough to convince you to make the drive the Tuscan atmosphere and service here... More

Why fly to Italy when you can eat here. The scenery is just as pretty and the exchange rate is better! The food-let's just say that of the two dozen times we've been to Italy no where compared to the food at Trattoria Lisina. One exception-the pizza in Venice (oddly enough) is exceptional and better than here.

New Year's evening dinner - 7 people. As good a meal as one Gould expectation find in this "pretty south" suburb of Austin and worth the trip. Food is diverse, well prepared. Service is friendly. Go and see the winery on the property.

I met a friend for our annual holiday dinner. The service was great and the food was excellent. Great ambiance for the holidays. My parents are members of the winery and the restaurant has always been excellent.

New Year's day meal with old friends. Great table with view of vineyard and sunset. Good meals all around, Milanesa (aka chicken fried steak, y'all) with arugula, tomato, etc topping, one grilled asparagus topped with salad, a lasagna dish, and shrimp risotto, all very good. Attentive, competent wait staff, good wine selection (a little pricey), overall a pleasant experience. Oh... More

A taste of Italy. Set among vineyards near Dripping Springs Texas; about 20-30 minutes from downtown Austin. Great food and service. Moderately priced. Good selection of wines. The setting and decor are fabulous

Enjoy wine and bocce as you wait for your table. The service and food were both great even on a busy holiday weekend. The interior is elegantly understated and matched by the wines.

This is definitely the best Italian food not only in Austin but including others areas like San Antonio. Everything is made on site from ingredients from Italy. Not cheap but worth every penny. There is literally nothing on the menu that is not bad. They even serve fresh gelato. To make it even better Duchman Family Winery is right next... More
