Good food but nickled and dimed.

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... read 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

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
