After having dinner in several places in Europe, this visit was one of the best. Food was excellent and service even better, polite but sense of humor. Nice, small place - a gem.

If you tire of Portuguese cuisine, this restaurant serves Italian food with a Portuguese twist and ingredients. Very well prepared pasta, good local wine selection.

We visited Limoncello up the hill behind the train station on the strength of its reviews as well as the fact that after 2 days of distinctly average Lisbon tourist fare we we ready for something a bit more refined. This place is definitely smaller than your average but the food was really nicely cooked and the service outstanding -... More

Service was really nice and great in just every way but the food unfortunately was not on the same level. I don't mean that the food was bad by any means but it was barely good, maybe only average. Prices were quite average and atmosphere good (mostly created by the great service).

Passed by walking many times, but waiting lines outside, so we walked on. Today, mid-afternoon lunch, managed to get a table. I now see why. All homemade pasta. The cream sauces are first class. Brazilian beef filets, wonderful Iberian ham....Of course we took the opportunity to book a table for the nighttime.

I came to eat here twice during my trip to Lisbon as it was one of the best meals out I have ever had and the second time coming the food and service was at the same brilliant standard. My boyfriend has been here about 6 times as he really likes it too. The food is amazing and the service... More

We had very much enjoyed this restaurant on our visit in April. Returning in October only reinforced all the pluses that we experienced in April. Service was outstanding. The food was honest, well presented, tasty, and exactly what we wanted for our last evening in Lisbon. I guess I will be repeating myself about how much we enjoyed the house... More

Wow we loved this restaurant. We ate here 3 times in 4 days because everything was really excellent; the food, the wine, the atmosphere but most of all the service of the amazing staff! They were so generous and warm, we just kept coming back. Definitely the best Italian restaurant in Lisbon, don't look any further! Limoncello truly deserves good... More

This is a great little Italian place - it is a little pricier but well worth it. The food is great quality, the wine list is extensive and the service impeccable. The staff have a great sense of humour which adds a nice little touch.

Excellent little restaurant. We were a mixed bunch of six diners and the menu had something for everyone. Reasonable prices for the food and wine.
