but once you walk in it is very much like a Carrabba's Italian Grill. Oddly, we were there at during dinner hour on a Sunday and the restaurant was not full by any means but sadly understaffed so we were told we would have to wait about 30 minutes for a table. We chose instead to sit at the chef's... More

We two couples had eaten here a couple of years ago before it changed owners. While the menu had changed slightly, the Osso Bucco is an excellent choice.

The place is a fair drive from civilization, but to be expected in order to transform you for Texas to Italy. We went to celebrate a birthday and couldn't have been more pleased with the atmosphere and service. The hostess was pleasant and our waiter helped us find a wonderful wine (all were reasonably priced and high quality). He knew... More

On a tiny back road in Texas, next to a orchard full of grapes sets this gem of a restaurant. Lovely grounds, beautiful décor and great ambience. The service is top notch, food is delicious. What a fantastic experience. John & LynNita Ellis

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice 3 course. No nonsense just good food and an awesome atmosphere. The meatballs are the best. So many options to choice from.

This place is amazing. Located on the grounds of Duchman Winery. You might think you were actually in Italy. The lasagna and rigatoni are fabulous. Other outstanding dishes are the Pollo al Marsala, Pollo al Piccata and the Parmigiana di Pollo. Simply outstanding. Service is excellent, Dining area is large and roomy. For dessert our table shared a cannoli and... More

European setting! This is set in a vineyard, next door to the winery. The staff if very good, the food is better! Reservations are a must. The menu is varied and offers food course by course. Suggest the Salumi della Casa ($14) followed by a giant serving of Milanese di Miale ($23) and finish with the Tiramisu ($8). We would... More

What a great place to make life memories! The drive itself out to the restaurant through the rolling hill country is beautiful. And turning in to the place is like turning in to an estate - driving by the vineyard first and seeing the massive stone buildings. Fabulous authentic architecture. Bar right inside the door so if you have a... More

We ate at Trattoria Lisina Saturday evening for a rehearsal dinner. The room was prepared nicely for our large party. The food was very delicious & plentiful. Our servers were prompt and did a great job. The only problem was the bread was delivered after all entrees had been completed & just prior to dessert being delivered. This is great... More
