Exceptional experience!

Really, really good and would visit again in a heartbeat. Went on a Friday night (8p, make reservations) and they were busy. That did not remotely affect their efficiency. These folks clearly have the customer experience down to a science. Owner greeted us upon arrival, immediately seated us. We... read more

On a chilly Friday evening in April five weary travelers stumbled around the streets of Boston's North End, looking for a meal to fill our bellies. Let's face it: they had us at Limoncello! After learning that we would have a little bit of a wait (no reservations on a Friday, remember?) we walked down the street to Mike's to... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 24th anniversary this past weekend in the North End. We ventured off Hanover Street in search of a restaurant we've never visited. We frequent the North End a lot and for some reason have not had the "Limoncello experience". We had an amazing meal. We dined at the bar on a very busy... More

For anyone looking for a friendly and fun atmosphere, that happens to be at a great Italian Restaurant, look no further than Limoncello in The North End. My family spent 2 days exploring Boston and on our last night, decided to try Limoncello because we heard they made their own Limoncello and we wanted to try it. That was a... More

While visiting the North End, we stopped in here before going home because we had to try their homemade limoncello. It was D-licious. And the atmosphere and employees were friendly! A must try!

The food and service was absolutely amazing! I have been all throughout Italy and I truly felt like I was back in Positano. The pasta and veal was amazing and it had a truly Italian family feel.

We visited Limoncello on the recommendation of a guide at Boston Common. Located near Paul Revere's House, the restaurant has all the charm you'd expect of the North End. From the hearty bread at the beginning of the meal to the handmade pasta (try the Rosette specialty) to the cannoli to finish, everything was outstanding. The staff was friendly and... More

We live near Boston but rarely have lunch in Town. Admist the 6 foot snow banks of the North End, we stoppd on a recommendation. The sauce was wonderful, I asked for more. Veal in both our dishes was tender. Service perfect . Bread incredible.
