Excellent Italian Restaurant

Went to Limoncello after a day at the track with three hungry buddies, the food was excellent, although the linguini and white clam could of had a bigger portion. The service was excellent as was the wine.

This restaurant never disappoints you, we return yearly during track season and have dined there multiple times with each experience being wonderful ! The food is authentic Italian, great flavor and cooked to order. The service is superb, we have had many different servers and have always been pleased. Giancarlo and his wife Nancy who own Limoncello are always there... More

a neighbourhood Italian restaurant with just OK food and amateurish service.Probably fine for a family pasta meal but foodies should stick to the downtown recommended spots.We were 6 and sat outside which is very noisy due to the traffic.Portions were large but not of a high quality.Our waiter was pleasant but was not knowledgeable with respect the food or wine.

We had an extremely good dinner here last weekend. It was new to us, and a real find. Food was wonderfully prepared, with bright fresh flavors. Itnis tops on our list for next year at the races.

Limoncello is a fabulous Italian restaurant from A to Z! We were taken from the first bite to the last swallow of homemade limoncello. We recommend the grilled vegetable appetizer and all pasta dishes!! Don't turn down an opportunity to land a reservation at this establishment and disregard negative reviews, judge for yourself! Buon appetito!

After the track the four of us went to Limoncello, because my husband and I had been there before and it was good. During our time here, the service was slow, as our waitress had many tables to cover. Everyone was moving as quick as they could, but I also heard other tables complain about the service. We did not... More

Been coming to Saratoga for years and this is the first and last time eating at this restaurant. I'm not one to ever leave a bad review. Decided on this restaurant cause it was 100 yards from where we were staying. After be seated outside took forever to be greeted by a waitress. Forget about the bread and water I... More

I appreciated the chef accomodating my request to modify the red snapper special from a spicy tomato sauce to a delicious traditional marinara sauce. The result was delicious.

On our visit to Saratoga Springs, we visited this restaurant because it had good reviews on TripAdvisor, however, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. It's a strong statement but let me tell you why. 1)There were two people seated inside and about 7 people outside, and we had to wait about 5-7 minutes to be seated. 2)We had to wait about... More
