We stopped by for Sunday lunch because we were told it was a 2 hour wait at Neptune Oyster even though there was no one in line. I Yelped Limoncello and it sounded good. It was a great find! First of all, they have the best bread that we had in Boston, which came with olives marinating in a delicious... More

Concierge highly recommended the restaurant as a moderately priced Italian restaurant. As soon as we were seated we felt rushed. Our waitress (never did hear her name) was rather abrupt. As others have said the bread and olives were a nice touch. The food was pretty good but nothing special. We had traditional dishes: chicken parm, chickan picatta, chicken marsala.... More

Great food, atmosphere and service. Special touches including starting with a plate of olives, great bread and believe it or not they leave a generous supply all of grated cheese on the table. Our new favorite restaurant in the north end.

Went for lunch. Service was outstanding as was bread, wine, mozzarella and octopus carpaccio. Canollis some of the best on little Italy. Entrees were very good but not 5 star. Had veal Marsala, veal saltibocca, And clams with white sauce. Definitely worth the trip.

Food was pretty good and the restaurant was busy when we arrived which is always a good sign. However, once a large local crowd in the window left, we were constantly rushed. Dessert arriving before the main was finished, bill on the table before we asked for it. We spent over $100 in about 45 minutes. Not the best for... More

This is literally a few steps off the Freedom Trail near Paul Revere's House so we stopped for a much needed rest and lunch. Immediately we sat down we have a very welcome iced water which was topped up many many times without the need for asking! My husband had the house special, pasta rosettes. He is still talking about... More

We we able to walk in (Sun. evening) w/o a reservation - other restaurants had 30-90 min waits. The food is absolutely amazing. Listen to the wait staff's recommendations, they will not steer you wrong. Service is the best - attentive but not intrusive. This was our second time at this restaurant and I can't possibly praise the food quality... More

We were t immediately served with rustic italian bread and olives. I was still deciding on what to drink when our waiter poured a small taste of... More

We were in town for only a couple of days and were brought to Limoncello by a local who raves about the place. I can see why. We were treated exceptionally well; even the owner came to our table a couple of times, once to bring a complimentary appetizer that he had just created. The food was delicious! I had... More
