$2 for a spoon of mayo!

My daughter and I had lunch here yesterday. She had an Italian panino and I had a BLT. The waitress asked me if I wanted mayo with my sandwich and I said "sure"! The sandwiches were both good and the sides were good as well. The place was full and we enjoyed people-watching through the large... read more

My husband wanted to treat me to a nice lunch. So we decided on Limoncello, because another friend liked it. There was only one other table with customers that day. My order arrived with 2 large hairs in it. I was not impressed. I would not go back or recommend it.

My wife and I were in for dinner tonite. Hadn't been in a while , but wanted to stay local and it was my wife's birthday -- she picked Cafe Limoncello. We weren't disappointed --the food was fresh --delivered in good time but not rushed. We weren't pushed to keep eating -- we were allowed that time to enjoy. A... More

Limoncello is on a stretch of Ottawa Street that's mostly tenanted by antique, second-hand, and consignment shops, so if you're hungry and also want a glass of wine, it's kind of the default place to go, And believe me, you could do far worse in terms of defaults. The food is ranges from not bad at all to excellent, with... More

We love to wonder Hamilton's Ottawa Street antique shops on a Sunday afternoon. One of the best parts of the day (and the way I get my husband to agree to go) is to promise to stop into Limoncello for a pizza, a glass of wine and a warm goats cheese salad. It's a lovely place to sit back and... More

Having tried Limoncello for the first time about 10 days ago, I have already went back a second time. The service is incredibly fast and friendly during lunch. I haven't been there for dinner yet. The ciabattas that they serve some of their sandwiches are home-made on the premises...and boy, what a difference that makes! They serve waffle-style fries which... More

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
