Mother's Day Treat!Wonderful, as always.... Took Mom for Mother's Day and it was perfect. Thank you!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect as always.You know, it takes something pretty special to get me to drive past The Salt Lick without stopping. Mother's Day was one such occasion. Food always good and the service is consistently excellent. Couldn't recommend more highly.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day locationWonderful choice for Mother's Day brunch, followed by a nice afternoon in downtown Wimberly. Every dish served was excellent, portion size was perfect, and prices were reasonable. Only drawback was feeling rushed by the waitress to place our orders.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI highly recommend the restaurant,I highly recommend the restaurant, food, and didning experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is always great - butFood is always great - but when you advertise a Mother's Day brunch and folks are dining before noon, you should offer brunch foods and beverages. Great restaurant and service; disappointing menu for Mother's Day brunch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMreviewexcellent food and service Saturday night even those the staff was coping with many large groups for Mother's Day, graduation and prom.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCome here at least once a yearhave celebrated family occassions since it opened.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visit Trattoria LisinaWe visit Trattoria Lisina when we can. We love the limestone outdoor eating area with the big fireplace whether it is in use or not. The food is always superb and the ambiance fills the spirit.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMUnexpected surprisefood choices from appetizers through desserts were outstanding and superbly prepared and presented. excellent wine list. my only quibble is the noise level; makes conversation a bit difficult but manageable. would highly recommend trattoria lisina for a very nice experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood place, bad hostingThe only problem with Trattoria Lisina is their poor hosting/reservation system.They are always unable to honor reservations.Every time I have been there I have waited more than 1hr to be seated, having a reservation.Of course it is understandable that you can't control how long other guests take to leave.But other places manage this better. They should offer less reservation spots because they can't honor them all.The hostess has to be running back to the dining room to check on tables that are being cleaned and they look like they don't know what to do. I was told that they had my table ready that it was being cleaned.It was more than 45min after that.It makes the experience worse if you lie to the customer you make people more anxious.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodOur food was well prepared and taste excellent. This was one of the top one or two dining experiences we have had in the area. Well worth the drive and the views were great.

Service was excellent - waiter was knowledgable, maybe a little too enthusiastic. View, if you get one, is great. Grounds outside seemed lovely.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food at LisinaThe food was outstanding, chosen from a menu filled with interesting choices. The service was superb.
We ate in the large main dining room, near the kitchen and the well stocked wine locker. While the room is large and quite attractive it contains a number of large, hard, flat surfaces, the effect of which is to make the room quite noisy.
Notwithstanding the noise, and the long drive on narrow roads in the pitch black night, this is one of our favorite places in the greater Austin area and we will continue to go often.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance & food!Beautiful scene! I love sitting by the windows to view the gorgeous flowers. The lasagna is my favorite. We went on a double date...and we all loved it!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing ExperienceThe food, wine, views and staff are amazing.

I highly recommend this place for anyone who seeks a touch of class without the tie.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBest 1 year AnniversaryMy husband and I went visited Trattoria Lisina last Sunday on our 1year Anniversary. I had made reservations even though it wasn't that crowded. I had noted on our reservation that is was our Anniversary. We brought a bottle back of Chianti from Italy where we spent our honeymoon. The gentleman in the front who I was unsure was a manager or bartender offered to pour our wine in a decanter with no cork fee and proceeded to hand us two glasses of Prosecco. We were then shown our table that had a white table cloth, the only table with a white table cloth. We were already feeling special. Our waitress arrived wishing us a Happy Anniversary. The food was good but the service is what made it a memorable evening. Thanks! The Millers :)4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing as always. My wifeAmazing as always. My wife and I were married at Trattoria Lisina three years ago and no it is our anniversary spot. We look forward each year to celebrating together with great food and wine at a romantic spot. You have to try it it is more than worth the drive.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply The Best!This is the second time we've been to Trattoria Lisina and we have loved both experiences. The ambiance is simply marvelous. The food is first class, and the service is top notch. And, this place is magical in good weather and bad. The first time we went it was raining, but it felt really cozy inside especially since we were seated by the fireplace. The second time was a beautiful day, lots of sunshine, a nice breeze and cool. We were seated in the porch area and enjoyed all the beautiful and fragrant flowers. What an experience! We will definitely return and encourage our friends and family to join us.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seafood risotto. WasGreat seafood risotto.

The wine and food were great. The staff was very attentive.
Apparently, they read specific notes from Open Table because they wished my wife and I a happy anniversary. This was done by a manager stopping by our table, not a staff of people clapping and singing. Very nice gesture that really drove it over the top for us.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant was fantastic.This restaurant was fantastic. The food was great. The grounds were beautiful.

We had made a reservation through Open Table and the restaurant was great to call the same day to confirm. We had a party of 10. We were seated immediately upon arriving. Our server, Jessica, was so amazing! She recommened a wine and it was phenomenal. We never had to ask for anything as she anticipated all our needs. The food was absolutely incredible. We had different things and some of the specials and each dish was amazing! The energy in the restaurant was awesome and made for a lively evening. We drove about 1 1/2 hours to get there and it was definetly worth it and we will return soon!

The food, service and ambiance are just right and if you can add a visit to the adjacent Duchman winery, it makes for a perfrct outing.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Risotto was excellent!The Risotto was excellent!

The food was delicious, the staff were wonderful, the evening was brilliant! It was a bit busy and noisier than normal, but hubs and I still enjoyed an evening of kid-free dining. Wonderful experience...can't wait to go back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVery decent food. The seafoodVery decent food. The seafood risotto of the day was really excellent. I had the saltimbocca, which was not the best I've ever had, but it was adequate. The wine list was not extensive, but everything on it was excellent. The ambiance was very nice - gorgeous building, tables far enough apart to allow for privacy, quiet enough to easily talk to your party. The service could have been a trifle better, but it was not at all bad. It is a drive into the country, which is not necessarily a bad thing, and the vineyard is extremely attractive itself. I will go back and take enough time for a winery tour and maybe a tasting.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Anniversary celebrationOur Anniversary celebration lunch was Great! They had our wedding cake set up with candles. Our waitress was very nice and took the time to cut our wedding cake for us.
We had a wonderful family event.

The risotto was outstanding. Highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic evening out or a glass of wine with vineyard views!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThat's Amore!Staff had correctly divined that we were celebrating our anniversary (perhaps from info supplied to Open Table years ago?). They placed us as one of the best tables overlooking liveoaks and rolling hills, and at least four staff members wished us a happy anniversary. The misto appetizer was a sampler of some very Italian items. We had Chilean seabass and seafood pasta for entrees, and they were spectacularly good. A little wine, a little dessert, marvelous ambience as we watched day turn into night. We lingered. It doesn't get any more romantic than this.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasant experience,Always a pleasant experience, great food, service, and ambience...3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our experienceWe enjoyed our experience at Trattoria Lisina. The food is always very good, while I would prefer some more pasta selections on the menu(dishes with ziti or other pastas that are not the fettucini/spaghetti variety). Our server and the entire wait and hosting staff was just great--efficient, honest, trustworthy, and friendly. It was a lovely evening.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
