This dish was wonderful, service was good. My daughters had chicken Parmesan and penne with sausage. The waitress warned her that it was spicy and it was,but she loved it anyway! We loved this place!

My husband & I travel to Boston a few times a year, usually just for Red Sox games & eats around Fenway, but this time we made sure we made the time to go to dinner in the North End. After reading other reviews (and salivating over the thought of those great meatballs!) we chose Limoncello & were not disappointed.... More

There are several great Italian restaurants in the North End, but Limoncello is definitely worth visiting. This is a family business, and everything on the menu is made fresh. We had the meatballs as an appetizer to share, and they are huge and delicious! They're as big as baseballs! We all enjoyed our entree selections, and then finished the meal... More

We have a quaint saying in the deep south, "Makes your tongue slap your brains out!" It definitely applies here! The most amazing food in the West End of Boston. The wine list is superb, the desserts decadent and sinful. Everything was perfect from start to finish. Please, go there!

We had a very good meal here on our latest trip to Boston. The service was fantastic and could not have been friendlier. The tables are a bit tight, but otherwise we had a great meal!

Great service and ambiance. We split a salad, which was fresh and very Italian. My wife had the house signature dish and I had the Chicken Cachatorri. Loved them both.

Did not live up to expectations. We had a large group which they handled pretty well. But when I asked other members of the group about their meals the response almost uniformly "it was OK" or "it was good". No mention of "great" or "wonderful". Had expected more. Have had better Italian food at chain restaurants.

We stopped here for lunch after visiting Paul Revere's house. We had heard to order the meatballs-they were fabulous! The grilled chicken on my salad was different but we still enjoyed our lunch here.

Great Italian cuisine in the north end of Boston. Anything goes - jeans, suits, kids couples etc. Very authentic, delicious, great service. We went on a Wednesday night and it was packed! Only negative, if you want to call it that, they don't allow sharing. We are Canadian and find American portions too big. We always share, not to save... More
