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.

Good food, service and well priced. I liked the outdoor terrace and there was a wood fire pizza oven. Only downside is the smoking inside at the bar which the diners can smell if one eats inside. I like the decor, modern and sophisticated.

More informal than Caf Con but really very good. I enjoyed the decor, the ambiance and the waiters/waitresses are good. I had the fresh water crayfish the taste and presentation excellent. This was followed by a fish called Capitaine au Congo. A local fish which is similar to turbot. It sat on top of a mash of potato, tomatoes and... More
