Alex is the best in the business.
The calamari was delicious and the cooking oil was very fresh. The Seafood Risotto was to die for - the best risotto I have ever had. We had great food here and would definitely recommend.
We love this place. The ambiance, service and food keep us coming back. We think this is a great place for dates, special occasions or just everyday dining.
We have been 20+ times and one of my favorite restaurants. I told everyone it was our 15th year Weddin Anniversary and nothing was done special. Drinks, apps, and desserts were great. Main dishes were terrible. Chicken was overcooked and dry. Also, the dishes were extremely bland. My wife couldn't even finish her meal. Waitress didn't ask if we enjoyed everything and had to chase her down for drink refills.
Took the wife and MIL out for dinner and as usual the experience was just great. Good food, great service, and a beautiful venue.
Beautiful setting, great service and the food was delicious.
First time dining here. Food was fabulous from appetizer to dessert, Cassandra was such a warm, helpful and friendly server, bright smile (ask for her if you go). We will come back often. My son and I walked around outside after dining and loved the ambience, and all the happy people enjoying a beautiful Texas evening.
An always enjoyable dining experience. Management is particularly accommodating of special requests - also friendly, welcoming and efficient. We take out-of-town guests and enjoy on special family occasions as well . . . and dine as a couple as frequently as we can.
Wonderful! Our waiter was well-informed and attentive. Great atmosphere, fantastic food. Plan to recommend this restaurant!!
Amazing Food, service, and ambience.
This is our go to place for special occasions and with friends who visit from out of town. We love the ambiance and food!
Trattoria Lisina consistently pleases the pallet. Great food, wine & service. We’ll be back, most definitely.
We always make a visit here on our wine tasting weekends. It has become our last stop (on Sunday) on our way back to Houston. We plan lunch here and a visit to the winery. Very good food, Service and Atmosphere. Every new person we bring is delighted at the whole experience! Save room for the gelato!
Great food, good wine, friendly staff focused on delivering a great experience
Trattoria Lisina never disappoints! Best meatballs ever. Great pastas, bread, and donuts for dessert! Beautiful grounds.
Great food! Just the value for the money.
My girlfriend and I had a great time.
The food was impeccable and the service was really good as well.
Booked a special occasion hoping for a decent table and got a view of the kitchen. Server was inexperienced and clearly thought that our conversation was secondary.
She was either all over us or not to be found. The food was a little salty so I suggest you bring your own water supply.
I live close and have enjoyed this place 5-6 times in the last two months but I can assure you that I won’t be going back. $130 for two people on a Wednesday....You can do much better. Good luck if you go!
The food is amazing. The atmosphere is amazing. Will keep going back.
My husband and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary here and it was excellent! You start out with the most amazing bread that comes with some delicious spices in olive oil. I asked for some balsamic vinegar and it made it even better. My husband ordered the lasagna and I got the fettuccine. Our server made suggestions for both of our dishes to elevate them and we took her advice and I'm so glad we did. My husband added bolognese sauce on top of his lasagna and I added some delicious grilled chicken to my pasta. Both dishes were simply delicious! We ended our evening with the incredibly delicious tiramisu and cappuccino. We are planning on going back and bringing more people along to experience the goodness! Thank you for a great evening Trattoria Lisina!
Great dining experience. A bit of a drive from Austin, but worth it. Wine was fantastic, food was great, and the service was incredible.
Everything was great!
My food came out bad and a drink was spilled the server never came back to refill my wine or drinks and didn’t address the food issue. Then they forgot about the special occasion that we were celebrating.
5 stars! Food, drinks, price, service, view... a must go!
Excellent experience...food is great and staff is knowledgeable of the food and wine selections.
As always, outstanding!
Great place for a nice romantic dinner!
Everything was perfect!
The food: we ordered: the osso buco - can't go wrong, it melts in your mouth. The pollo arostico with green beans - this was the first time we've ordered this in the 5 years we've been dining here, it's a must try and I'll order or again. A side of mashed potatoes, our kids know what's good. A side of Brussels sprouts - they weren't crispy and were greasy this time, but we'll give them another shot next time. We love the bread and olive oil. The kids had gelato and it was good, as always.
The front "sunroom" area was closed to set up for a special event. That's our favorite spot to sit. We felt crammed into the main dining area, especially for 5.15 on a Tuesday.
Our server was knowledgeable, personable, and attentive.
We can't wait to come back.
We had a great dining experience as we were celebrating our friend Wendy's birthday. It was her first time to the restaurant. Our Server was very attentive and professional. (Sorry -I forgot her name but her daughter is a hostess at the front). The calamari appetizer is hands down the best in Austin. This is the 4th time I've ordered it and it was perfection (coming from Hawai'i, impressive). The filet and bone-in pork was cooked to perfection too. Even with the manager not delivering our GSM wine and the kitchen running out of the seafood risotto at 6:30 pm, we still left "happy AND content". This restaurant is a hit and I'm glad its located in my backyard.
Have been a long time customer of Trattoria Lisina, as usual the food was delicious, wait staff is exceptional (our waitress Christian was fantastic). Dining room has great atmosphere, especially the veranda. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and so very enjoyable. The added patio furniture, picnic tables and playground has made it even more family friendly.
Absolutely amazing time in all ways!
Warm and inviting atmosphere. Beautiful grounds. Waitstaff were extremely personable. Very authentic Italian dining experience
Normally this place is a strong 5 stars. I figure the staff was strained with Saturday night volume. Our server was not as attentive as we’d had in the past. Also 1 of our 2 entrees came out 15 min after the other.
I had made a reservation in advance, requested a table in a quiet corner, and then was seated in the noisy area close to the entrance. I was expecting to be seated in the room with all the window and table cloths. ☹️
Never disappoints. Food was excellent. Glad we made reservations
This is our go-to place for special occasions as well as just treating ourselves. Lovely spot and the staff makes you feel so special. And the food - wow!! They have some of the most inventive Italian dishes ever - and never fussy or pretentious. Just good, filling food at a good value for an upscale spot. Sometime, you might event see the owner there, eating with a tableful of family members joining him. Treat yourself - make a reservation and go to Lisina as soon as you can. You won't regret it!!
Food was amazing will be back with friends soon. Great job
Food was amazing, food came out at the perfect time, prices were descent.
