“Excellent Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

This is the fourth time I've eaten at Limoncello's over the past couple of years. As usual, the food was excellent, as was the service. I had the chicken marsala, while my husband had the calamari fettuccine. We split a ceasar salad and a giant meatball appetizer. The prices are reasonable. The atmosphere ranges from family friendly to romantic, depending on where you are seated. The restaurant is right on the lagoon in a central location for the hotel zone. The only complaint my husband had was that the red wine was chilled.

“Itailian in Mexico!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

My daughter begged for Itailian food while we were enjoying Cancun. What a pleasant surprise, a nice wine list, and great service. The food was good , I had a ravioli dish that was wonderful. My daughter loved it, as it turned out it was a nice change of pace.....very good dining experience!

“Yum”

Affordable and delicious. Situated right on the lagoon complete with alligator sightings. Fried calamari was decent, desserts very good. Respectable wine list.

“Wonderful experience in my honeymoon at Limoncello”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

I was very happy to find Limoncello in Cancun and enjoy 2 nights of wonderful service and dinner, the pasta and deserts were cooked to perfection. The service was so warm and friendly, it felt like we were home. Italian food in Mexico? Go to Limoncello.

“Watch your wallet”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

After reading some of the reviews we decided to go to Limoncello's. We thought we may have gone to another restaurant. The waiter was very nice but not to informed. He would have to go ask someone for an answer. I had the lasagna, which was very bland. My wife had the Risotto Milaness which just ok. The problem was the bill. They charged us almost $7.00 for a bottle of warm water, but the kicker was they over charged us 110 pesos (over $9.00)) for my wife's meal. They argued with us and said sea food is expensive, and the price in the computer was correct, and the price on the menu was wrong. The bottom line is they gave in and charged us the price on the menu. Next time Rolandi"s.
