Trattoria Lisina Ratings and Reviews
I have tried this place 3 times and I want to like it but the food is consistently low quality for the price. We had to send my wife's veal back and my duck was way over cooked and advertised in the menu as medium rare...which it should be. I love the ambiance and want to like this place but this may be the last time we try it. Hope they can figure it out
Trattoria Lisina is our go-to restaurant for any family occasion. The restaurant is set amongst the vineyards in the quiet town of Driftwood. The food is fabulous, definitely food for foodies. Their specials are always very well thought out. For example, when we went two of their specials were: cajun seafood risotto with shrimp, grouper and cod with tomatoes in a sauce and pork belly pizza with Makers Mark BBQ sauce. We enjoyed both of these. The roasted duck and the tiramisu are always good choices. Most servers are friendly and professional. Our server, Alex, was very attentive and knowledgeable.
The service was outstanding, as well as pairing wine with the meal. I personally tried the Lasagne again. The fist time it was delicious melt in your mouth. Thus time unfortunately was some what dry and over cooked. I'm hoping to have better the next time around.
Wife's birthday. Family dinner of seven. Everything was great except that we were unable to bring in our glasses of wine we were not finished with. I could understand if it was a bottle. How could a half glass of wine make any difference to you. We still purchased two bottles and other drinks.
I don't think you should extend your relationship with Duchman to your patrons.
I have patronized your business many times as well as recommend it and will continue to do so.
Regardless, I was embarrassed for my guest.
The setting is very attractive and is reminiscent of Tuscany buildings. The grounds are really nice, with numerous outside tables to sit and enjoy the outdoors. Food was very good and wait staff friendly and responsive. All in all it was a most enjoyable lunch!
Outstanding value. Beautiful setting, very good food, and Alex, our waiter, was absolutely first class. Very personable and attentive. Knew the menu and wines thoroughly. And, obviously loved where he worked and what he was doing. We will ask for him next time we go.
So, Trattoria Lisina is probably a great place. We wouldn't know because they didn't bother to tell us that they were going to be closed for business on Sunday. Yes, a hurricane came into Texas. No, it wasn't something that needed to shut down a restaurant in the middle of Central Texas when we were getting nothing but alot of rain.
Trattoria Lisina did not post anything about being closed to their FB page, nothing on Twitter, nothing on the Voicemail when we called multiple times. So, we took a chance and drove there. Gate was opened so, looked promising. Then, empty parking lot at the restaurant.
Ridiculous way to handle business. Thankfully, we were able to save my wife's Birthday by calling Jobell's in Wimberley and getting a late reservation.
