So-so

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

Had my first brunch at Limoncello last weekend. It was fantastic. Make sure you order a breakfast or brunch that includes home fries! They are little bundles of potato perfection!! Ottawa St is great on Saturdays, brunch, farmer's market, antique stores and other fun shops. Love this part of Hamilton.

Came here with my mother and grandmother for Brunch. The location is nice on Ottawa Street, I would recommend sitting inside, there is a patio available however it's small and right along the sidewalk in a higher traffic area. The breakfast was delicious and service was good until it was time to pay for our meal. Our waitress ended up... More

A bit late on a Monday evening, my boyfriend and I decided to share some apps and a pizza. The server seemed to forget we were out on the patio occasionally but when she did visit she was pleasant and made some good recommendations. We had the crab cakes which were very good. The mushroom stuffed with shrimp with bruschetta... More

The food was very tasty and we'll presented. Location sketchy. Did not like being nickled and dimed over coffee warm ups and second sodas. The waitress went mia and waited a long time to flag her down. This restaurant in my option is a far cry from an upscale restaurant that can get away with that policy. They would have... More

The food and service have been consistently excellent every time I've been here. The gnochi is fabulous. The wine is reasonably priced, and I've never had a a bad meal. There are a few little tables outside in the nice weather, but it's really not an attractive view or ambiance.

i've enjoyed everything i have tried so far but I tend to pick their thin crust pizza most often, its always busy and it can get a little noisy, but the food is worth it, I love their super crispy cross cut fries too

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 windows on the sunny... More
