Sorry Limoncello did not meet expectations. Party of 5 each of us thought food was underwhelming. Service adequate at best. Compared to many other North end restaurants this one goes last on my list A few pluses. Ample room, we did not feel crowded. Not rushed. Good bread. Read so many good reviews cannot believe we left hungry. Sorry, maybe... More

First trip to Limoncello's in quite a while. I had talked it up to my husband and it did not disappoint. We made reservations for Sunday night (although we probably could have just walked in). We were seated right away and before we could even put down our coats, the waiter was bringing over waters for us with a smile.... More

We arrived late on a Saturday night, and it was packed but we were greeted like old friends and got a table in the middle of the restaurant. Service was very friendly, informative and cozy. All the dishes we tried were perfectly cooked the portions were generous and tasty. Local wine went perfectly with the meal. Overall a very pleasant... More

This is hands-down our favorite restaurant in Boston. A big claim for a city teaming with restaurants. Whenever we visit, we make a point of going. During a recent icy-cold day we were greeted with smiles and welcomes to come out of the cold (despite the fact that the restaurant didn't open for another 30 minutes). The food is wonderful...

We all had different dishes in our group and no one was disappointed. The wine and bread flowed freely and try the meatballs for an appetizer they're huge and delicious. We had a group of 6 so a gratuity was added to our bill. The house Cabernet Sauvignon was delicious.

Went to Limoncello with some friends in November 2014. Live in Boston and have been to many North End restaurants and would say that this place is middle of the road when it comes to Italian joints in the North End. Got their signature dish, which is Lasagna noodles cut in half filled with cheese and mushrooms with a creamy... More

Recently had the most wonderful meal! The meat ball appetizers were amazing. The lasagna did not disappoint. I had the Rosette Limoncello (Signature Dish) homemade wide noodle cooked with prosciutto, montassio cheese, mushrooms & cooked in a tomato cream sauce with truffle oil was amazing.

While visiting Boston last week, me asked a few locals for a restaurant recommendation and everyone mentioned Limoncello. We are New Yorkers and have many great restaurants to choose from so we think we know what we are talking about. We loved Boston and can't wait to return. The food was excellent and the service was great. This is definitely... More

Tis a grand day to be walking the streets of Little Italy following Monday’s rainy, foggy, cool day. Interesting that tonight is crystal clear and we can see for miles and miles. Today is full sun and the coldest day of fall in Boston. I know that Freedom trail runs through Little Italy, and the Paul Revere Statue and home... More
