This restaurant is owned by Damian Mandola, who co-founded the Carrabba's restaurant chain. Mr. Mandola has a few shops in Austin as well. Trattoria Lisina is in Driftwood, Texas- sort of by the Salt Lick. The food at Trattoria Lisina is A-MAZING! I can still taste the white truffle oil from my risotto. Check it out:

I forgot to take a picture of it before I delved into it, and so this is the picture of it after I was stuffed.
Can I go back right now please?
|This is the only picture I got of Russ's dish. He got the linguine and it was also perfect.|
He ordered some polenta, pictured on the side.
Here are a few more photos of the grounds around Trattoria Lisina. If I shoot bridals, I'm choosing this place as the shoot venue. So beautiful. I felt like I was in a foreign country.
