Very average lunch

I met some gals for lunch here as it was near to somewhere else we needed to be. There was nothing bad about it, nothing bad at all. There was also nothing great about it. It was very, very average. The service was average, the food was average, the decor, the menu, all of it, average. We did have... read more

We have been here a few times now for breakfast and never disappointed. Fresh hot, fast, even some fresh fruit garnish. Never a problem finding street parking in the Ottawa street village.

After strolling through Ottawa street for fabric on a weekend, my friend and I were starving for lunch. I had delicious pasta and cake at Limoncello before, so I recommended my friend to try it. Street parking is busy on weekdays, but we lucked out as it was a Saturday. The dining room was almost full, but we were served... More

My husband and I made a reservation for New Year's eve dinner. As always, we were not disappointed. They added two more choices for New Years, which we ordered. I had the chicken stuffed with spinach and ricotta cheese. I liked the presentation of the dinner. Asparagus was perfect, mushrooms had grated butternut squash on top and roasted potatoes. This...

Very good service from the moment we walked in. Luckily we had a reservation, because the tables were all taken. Obviously the Christmas season has something to do with that, but the food reputation means the crowd returns. Had the roasted vegetable ciabatta with chicken, tasty and filling. Fries are most unusual, but cooked well. At 12 noon the soup... More

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
