Café Limoncello may not be in the best of neighbourhoods in Hamilton, but that Hamilton. The restaurant is open for Breakfast lunch and dinner. I have attended on three occasions and have yet to be disappointed whether for lunch or dinner. I am going back for dinner. The portions as such that you have great value for an authentic meal...

It took forever just to get someone to the table , the waitress was not attentive and forgot to half of the appetizers. No one checked to see if... More

Food was ok. The place was clean and pleasant. Service was a fail. Slow, mistakes etc. no proper greeting. No drink request. No "our special tonight is..." Saw they made an error with the cheque at the table next to us as well. Service is a fail.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner. Limoncello's is a nice little casual restaurant that we'll definitely return to. Tucked in the fabric district it isn't much from the outside, but the food is terrific. My wife and I both had salad (house, and caesar) and they were both good. For mains we had gnocchi with the rose sauce... More

We have been numerous times to this restaurant because it is close to us. The food is good, but, the service each time we go has been inconsistent. There has always been something that they forget, including items ordered. This last time was on this Sunday past. At one point we (a group of 6) were the only ones in,... More

My friend stopped at Limoncello for lunch and were impressed with the variety of choices on the menu. We finally decided on individual pizzas and waited with anticipation. She was very disappointed with her choice and the pizza had cheddar on it. Very strange taste. Mine was a bit better (Tuscan vegetable) but the artichockes drowned out the other flavours.... More

Found this Gem while shopping for fabric up and down the street. We both had the same dish and were amazed. Grilled Chicken Ciabatta, Chicken grilled to perfection, basil mayonnaise was outstanding, and the freshest veggies on a warmed ciabatta. I mean thoroughly warmed, not microwaved to dry out. Side house salad was a perfect spring mix with their own... More

Our office had their Christmas luncheon here yesterday. The food was excellent. The staff were friendly and accommodating even with a party of 14 people which can get a bit hairy for servers. The facilities were clean. All in all it is everything that you really want in a restaurant. Good food, friendly staff, clean environment, all at a decent... More
