Great place

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

Don't just come for the food -- Limoncello has it all: excellent food and service in a beautiful setting. Dine indoors or on the outdoor patio enclosed in a lovely garden. The decor and ambiance are reminiscent of a busy restaurant in the heart of Florence on a hot summer's night.

A nice varied menu, with great dishes in each category and for every palette. The service is quick and nice - everyone seems in a good mood all the time!

Very nice place with a very good staff! I had the veal with lemon sauce, mashed potato and a glass of house red wine. It was really good, and the mashed potato was excellent! Even the wine was good, considering that it was just the normal house wine. For desert I had the Tiramisu, of course you have to when... More

Limoncello has a great atmosphere and aspect. But there is more to a restaurant than that. There are better restaurants in Kinshasa. Food is good but a little bland. Service is slipping. Last time I went we had no napkins and there was no salt on the table. Not a big deal but makes the experience more mediocre. I would... More
