Very good Italian food and very nice decor. Would love to go often but very expensive to dine here; really for special occasions in my opinion.

The service is 5 star, the food is absolutely sensational! Your meal will always turn out perfect. This is a MUST if you're in the DRC. We will definitely be back. Thanks so much Limoncello!

Limoncello in the heart of Kinshasa exudes an international palatable cusine emanating from Italian origins. This is my favorite dining experience abroad. My friends and I eat here almost daily as their menu is vast and full of delicious surprises. Amy and her staff exemplify the utmost and tasteful dining environment. 5 stars and Cudos. I recommend Limoncello to everyone... More

Very reasonable, probably the best price/value establishment in Kinshasa. Simple and good food, thanks to MARIA, the chef. The wine list is well selected and is fairly priced. The acoustics is sadly bad inside the restaurant.

We had to wait to be seated. I may have not ordered the right dish, but the steak was nothing special. I still believe the restaurant is capable of making great food, and would like to go back for another visit.

Limoncello is probably the best restaurants in Africa, there is no doubt that it is the best place to enjoy a perfect meal with a very good service. I have been many times there and never been disapointed. Excellent place

If only products knowledge was within the staff I would put a 5.as a wine drinker and vegetarian It is upsetting when a staff do not know what ihe sells. Food is beautiful, atmosphere great.
