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 usually dine here for special occasions like birthdays and take guests here when they come to town. Nice atmosphere and great service for a leisurely dinner.

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

Family owned business with delicious food and fantastic service. We haven't yet found anything on the menu that isn't wonderful. Great place for that special night out. And it's right next to Duchman winery, so arrive early and visit the winery for a sampling of their wines. Then enjoy a delicious dinner in a restaurant with a relaxing, indulgent atmosphere....

When we have birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions to celebrate, we always go to Trattoria Lisina. The food is like being in Italy (been there several times-Italy that is!) The wine selections are all local from the neighboring vineyard, but very good for NOT being Italian. The gelato is the real deal though.

My wife and I have lived in Italy And Damian's Restaurant is the BEST. It needs Messina Hof Wine to compliment his wonderful selections. Osso Buco is amazing The Duck was perfect with our Nero D' Avola Wonderful Ambience

Very nice restaurant with great food. Good selection on the menu and excellent service. If you are in the area try it out. Reserve a table first though as it gets very busy and the carpark gets filled up fast. Found it a little noisy in there and hard to hear everyone at the table when a conversation was going... More

Everything's big in Texas! This restaurant is adjacent to a vineyard on a large ranch in Driftwood. We walked as far inside as we had outside to get to our table. The bread is very tasty, a great start to a meal that included Damian's award winning Caesar salad. We also had artichoke & Parmigiano fritters (hot out of the... More

I've been to Trattoria Lisina of several occasions and this most recent visit was just as delightful as the previous occasions. This restaurant has a great wine selection and the menu items should satisfy any appetite. I particularly like to osso bucco.
