Very generous portions

Well priced, good food with huge portions. I can never finish everything on my plate. Have been here for brunch, lunch and dinner. All very tasty!

Generally we were disappointed by the food and lack of atmosphere at Lemoncello. Wait staff were friendly but they ran out of beer choices as the "fridge had not been stocked that day." The restaurant is reminiscent of a cafe, it is clean but lacking in ambiance. The antipasta appetizer platter was very tasty, although we did find it overpriced.... More

Frozen, re heated food passed off as Fresh Italian fare. Not interested in ever returning. Horrible food and no health inspection pass hanging in the window. My pasta was awful and I couldn't eat it. Husband did not enjoy his Chicken either. Over priced freezer burnt food.

Great place. Lovely inside and the atmosphere was great. A little expensive but a good place for a nice meal. Everything seemed fresh and made with care.

We went here with a party of 9 for my mother in laws birthday. The place was very noisy not leaving much opportunity to have a conversation. It was a mixed aged crowd. Place was a bit crowded. I ordered pene a la vodka with shrimp which was ok. My husbands food was brought out last while everyone's was ready.... More

This was my first visit to Limoncello. The restaurant came recommended and I met friends there for lunch. I ordered a chicken salad sandwich on ciabetta - the chicken was dry and there was far too much sauce on the sandwich. My friends also were not impressed with their lunch. But the worst thing was the noise level. The restaurant... More

Greetings. While I've been to the venue once before for a retirement dinner in their private party space, I've never been there for lunch or dinner. What an amazing menu selection for lunch (and dinner, saw it online). The retirement dinner experience was just okay, but that was NOT due to the restaurant choices or service, which was fine. Lunch... More

I can't say anything stood out. We ordered a pizza, the special for the day, and it was good. Service was fine, price was average. The place had a steady flow of folks in and out so I think the locals like the place and keep them busy. I would return if in the area, but I'd also like to... More

I like the roominess, the light, and the comfy chairs. Other than soup, meals start from $12. Too expensive for me so I had a plate of garlic bread--delicious ($7.95). Parking: metered on the street or in the back for $1/hour.

We hosted a Sunday brunch bridal shower at Cafe Limoncello and it was great! Everything was set up as requested, food was served on time and the food was wonderful! We had a special dietary request which was taken care of also. The food was hot and delicious for everyone and the wait staff attentive to us. The room downstairs... More
