    My husband and I came here 8 1/2 years ago and always talked about how amazing the food was, especially the tomatoes in the Caprese. We came here last night and it was still fantastic, we can’t stop talking about how amazing the tomatoes were! The wine was also great and our server was good as well.

    Family get together. Lovely experience. The food is always delicious. Everything on the menu is cooked to perfection. This is not your typical American dining - 45 mins in and out. This is an experience, typical dinner is long as food is made to order. Reservations were made in a timely fashion. The wine list is extensive. The desserts are a large portion and shareable.

    Food is consistently good but service is not and despite a relatively low occupancy we always manage to be seated at an unusually small table near the kitchen or bar.

    It was a dreary and cold evening so entering the beautiful and cozy restaurant was a great feeling. We were seated near a fireplace so even better. Our server was new but did a great job. As usual the food was superb. This is one of favorite restaurants and we're happy its just a short drive from our home.

    Had another great experience. We had the pleasure of our server, Alex, being his first customers on his first day at Liaina. He was very friendly, professional and provided a wonderful service. The only issue was that my veal Marsala was not as hot as it could have been. It was very busy, so that could have been the issue. Otherwise, we look forward to visiting again very soon.

    Quality AND quantity both describe what you get dining here! The prices were extremely reasonable, especially for how fresh every dish tasted, and the fact that we all got to leave with leftovers! Added to that, our server, Danny, was especially charming and we will be asking to be seated in her section next time we go!

    In my opinion this is by far the best nice restaurant in the Dripping Springs area. The only thing I can complain about is the noise level. Next time I will ask to be seated in the front area instead of in the large room near the bar. The menu and wine selections are excellent.

    The cocktails, appetizers, contorni, and pastas were outstanding. The environment was OK - it reminded me of an Olive Garden decor and the open kitchen made the room very noisy and it was hard to have a conversation without leaning in or speaking loudly. The service was good but the waiter was very young and I could tell he did not have any formal serving experience - there were a few times during the meal that I was left looking around for service only to find none. The desserts were utterly forgettable - the Tiramisu was extremely dense and the chocolate cake was both too salty and too cloyingly sweet. The setting of the restaurant on the vineyard grounds was quite lovely.

    As usual, the food and the ambiance was lovely. We were disappointed that we tried to order several different wines before finding one that was actually available. They should indicate on the wine menu which ones are no longer available.
