We had carry out Margherita pizza and a salad. It was pretty good, but did not resemble Margherita pizza. While we waited we had a drink at the bar...unfriendly! I left the woman a $10 tip hoping she would be nice to the next couple!

Being from the northern suburbs of New York City (Westchester County), I am very spoiled by excellent Italian restaurants. So, Luisa's of Chestertown was a genuine revelation. The food far exceeded my expectations for quality and authenticity, and the waitress/bartender was not only knowledgeable and prompt but was most gracious and genuinely interested in me as a visitor to the...

While we tried to visit at dinner, it was too crowded to wait. Sooo ... we went for lunch the next day and it was great and not crowded--well worth the wait! I had gluten-free spaghetti, which was excellent; many of the pastas (not lasagna) can be ordered with G-F pasta at an additional charge. My wife's shrimp fra diavalo... More

We had lunch on a Monday when the place was not crowded. Service was prompt and the waiter caring. Atmosphere inviting. Menu had many things from which to choose. I had the eggplant parm which was abundant and good. My husband had the stuffed shells--said they were great but wish they have given three instead of two. The espresso was... More

We visited on a Friday night and they were very busy. We needed to get back and were reluctant to wait to be seated. So we ordered takeout for 6. Though very busy, this was correctly accomplished in a friendly way. Thoroughly enjoyed our delicious dinners once we got them home! One dinner was enough for two people to share.... More

A group of six had reservations at six on a busy Saturday night. The restaurant was attractive and packed for the college parents weekend. Please note, discounts are provided with Washington College IDs. We sampled six entrees: shrimp Alfredo, eggplant Parmesan, spaghetti with meat sauce, veal Marsala, veal piccata, spaghetti with sausage. We all ordered soft drinks and tea. Refills... More

Great food and service. Nice atmosphere, the families with noisy children were in separate ares from the adults having a 'quiet' meal. Greatly appreciated this as it was a special occasion dinner with my husband. Menu had good selection without being overwhelming and the service was excellent. Well paced meal, courses arrived promptly without feeling rushed. Loved house made desserts.

Our family eats here once a week and we have tried just about everything on the menu. We are yet to be disappointed! Their specials are a little pricey but great portions. Proud to say this Italian restaurant is in my hometown!
