Very good italian place

Excellent italian restaurant serving all types of dishes (pasta, pizza, meat, fishes). All dishes tasted great, service was nice, waiters competent and speaking great english in case you need that. Restaurant room is nicely decorated and tables are well spaced. A great place.

The Trip Advisor map showed this restaurant to be only a few blocks from our hotel (Balmoral), but we couldn't find it. Finally, I used the Waze app, which showed it to be on Avenida 1, but 8/10 of a mile away. We ended up jumping in a taxi and using Waze to find it (the driver didn't know of... More

Went to Limoncello a tuesday afternoon, pretty early so there weren't a lot of people. The place is nice, intimate and clean, and the waiters displayed a good sense of service. However, there were two mayor cons: there's a window from the kitchen that goes out into the pavilion, which makes the restaurant very noisy from all the work going... More

I had a lovely meal here with business colleagues but could easily be a romantic spot as well. All the dishes were well prepared with an artistic presentation. Was pleasantly surprised at this find

Looked all over and can't find this place? Looked where the map shows and all around the area. Had the name changed?

Looking for a really nice, quiet place for dinner in San Jose? Limoncello is the place. Several dinners there - all excellent. Actually has a ribeye steak last week and it was as good or better that the Brazilian and Argentine places.

There is no lack of restaurants in San Jose that serve Italian food from pizza to full dinners. Limoncello is a regular dining spot for our friend who lives half the year in San Jose. The food was delicious and the portions were very good. It might be a little pricier than other establishments, but it is fine dining with... More

First of, service is great. Type of place where the waiter is helpful but not on top of you all the time. I've eaten here several times and can't remember when I've had a bad meal. Just good food, great price and service.
