Trattoria Lisina Ratings and Reviews

This is becoming a yearly destination lunch spot on our cross- country trip- just wish it were open more days at lunch! Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly, and paced the meal perfectly. Kitchen kindly split a Caesar, which was great with their garlicky herb olive oil for bread dipping. Meatballs were the best ever- took part of them home. Margarita pizza was just how we like it. We decided to order 2 pastas to go for a dinner in at our B&B--my sugo on tiny thin fresh noodles was excellent, and my husband's pasta with prosciutto, onions, mushrooms and cream was so good I had to steal some.
This restaurant has such a special ambiance that it encourages lingering. An added benefit is that it is next to the Duchman winery so you can combine a little wine tasting as well. This is a great restaurant and we are looking forward to returning again next year.

Always a good experience, food and service are very good. Mixed cocktails not so much. Bartender was too heavy on vermouth in vodka martini, margheritas unmemorable.
Loved the seafood linguini, duck breast, pork chop. Wish you served italian bread instead of the current offering.

We have been to Trattoria Lisina from its inception many years ago and we've never had anything but scrumptious food and professional service. We especially enjoy the pork chop, lasagna, risotto, and red wine selections. We have brought along both family and friends and everyone seems to like it as much as we do.

We were first seated in an outer dining room area and asked if we could be moved inside where the ambience was different. They moved us right away. Our server was very friendly and helpful with menu choices Food was outstanding. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an upscale experience for dinner.

Excellent food and service by Timothy. We started with the crab cake, which was really good. We split a Caesar salad between two people and it was a perfect portion. Our son had a pepperoni pizza just the way he ordered it and loved it. My husband and I both had the fettuccini. Very nice pasta. We ended with tiramisu. It was really yummy but a huge portion. Could easily feed three.

They continue to ignore my request for a quiet table out of the mainstream flow of the restaurant. Reservation times are not normally honored and they will seat some where between 15 and 30 minutes late. The non-cooking staff is ill prepared to do their job effectively and are inexperienced in conducting the front end of a restaurant. I know this isn't NYC but, come on, how hard is it to get the reservation correct. This restaurant needs to hire a professional staff

Feels like you are arriving at an Italian mansion, when you walk inside you are in Italy. The entire restaurant is beautiful. The food is delicious from appetizer to dessert. The atmosphere is romantic and elegant.

Came here for a romantic evening, and at the recommendation of a friend, made my reservations for sunset. It was everything I wanted it to be. Great service, great food, GREAT location, even if it is a bit of a hike.

We've been coming to the restaurant since it opened. And have been coming ever since when we get a chance. We live about 120 miles from the restaurant but love it so much we keep coming back every chance we get.
And we will be back...

The food and wine were fantastic and the service was some of the best we've ever received. We had the caprese appetizer, ravioli special, osso bucco, and affogato. It was all delicious. Our waiter, Alex, made our evening perfect. Great experience overall. We will certainly be back.

Took relatives for a Friday night dinner. Meal was great; great wine recommendation by Chris in the bar; and Trevor was great as our waiter (around enough to check on us, but not overbearing). Good wine list and worth the drive.
