Deep Italian Roots
Trattoria Lisina is a family owned establishment, just like you'd find in the countryside of Italy. Chef and owner Damian Mandola is a veteran in the Italian restaurant business, and has traveled across the United States and Italy, visiting different neighborhoods and exploring Italian cuisine to find unique dishes to bring home with him to Trattoria Lisina. His experience shows throughout the restaurant, from the extensive and creative wine list full of fine Italian wines, to his family’s authentic recipes on the menu. When you dine at Trattoria Lisina, you’ll feel the energy and love of family, friends, food and wine, that Damian has instilled across the space.
The Mandola Estate: An Italian Retreat in the Texas Hill Country
Offering stunning views of the surrounding hills and an authentic Italian architectural style, we’ve designed our restaurant to be elegant, while still inviting. You'll feel like you're arriving at Italy's countryside as you drive onto the estate, where a beautiful fountain and lush landscaping beckon you into the dining room. For larger groups, we offer a beautiful veranda and multiple dining rooms where you can host a corporate meeting, birthday party, or rehearsal dinner. No detail was left untouched throughout out restaurant's design.
Tried and True Italian Recipes
From fresh salads to indulgent homemade pasta, diners can enjoy a menu full of authentic Italian recipes from the Mandola family. We use the finest, freshest ingredients available for our dishes, and have created a seasonal menu of Italian classics that the whole family is sure to love. There are no microwaves in our kitchens – just homemade classic Italian favorites created by our passionate chefs. Pair your meal with a hand-selected bottle of wine from our Italian wine list, and settle in for an evening of delicious food and warm Italian hospitality.
