Although noted for their mainly pasta-oriented dishes, they make one of the best local organic beef burgers around. NEVER had a disappointing meal at Luisa's

We visited Luisa's while on a weekend getaway. The service was helpful and efficient. The food was truly incredible! Try the bruschetta. They have a nice selection of wine to enjoy with your meal. We really enjoyed our meal and we will definitely come back whenever we visit the area again.

Food portions are a perfect size. Perfect restaurant for a family dinner. Kid friendly. Dressy code is very casual. Prices are very reasonable

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

This is THE BEST Italian restaurant in my hometown of Chestertown, MD. Not a bad choice on the menu - great service - wonderful atmosphere.

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
