Delightful little Italian restaurant that served wonderful pizzas & other typical Italian fare. They offered complimentary after dinner glasses of Limoncello, which was really unexpected & nice.

“Tasty Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

It wasn't too expensive for such a fancy restaurant, and there were tons of great food options. I have no complaints, and would definitely go back.

“Good Italian food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We ate at Limoncello in March of 2013. The menu is extensive, with pasta, seafood, chicken and red meats in many forms. The wine list is also large and reasonably priced. Overall, the food is good and the portions are large. I ordered the tuna "termino tres quartos" (cooked three-quarters) and should have asked for "medio." The service was excellent --- professional and prompt. As others have noted, the restaurant consists of several rooms; the large room on the left as you enter has a large screen TV which played childrens' cartoons, so many people might prefer the room on the right or the table overlooking the garden at the back. Limoncello is a good choice, but Esquina de Buenas Aires is a better choice for meat, and Cafe Mundo has good pasta and nice outside patio areas for roughly the same price.

“Very nice Italian Restaurant and Very good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

As someone else mentioned I believe the restaurant is a converted home where they have tables set up in various rooms all accessed by the hallway to the kitchen. Still I found it very charming. There is an extensive menu and a nice selection of wines. Cocktails are also offered are were done well. Our waiter, Louis, was an engaging older man who knew enough English to be very helpful. Someone else mentioned the portions were good sized-- and that is true. The food was very good and the ambiance was very nice, albeit somewhat different. The staff was very helpful and my experience there was excellent in all respects. The cost was very reasonable and they took credit cards. I will eat there again when in San Jose, CR.

“We were not disappointed, Limoncello lived up to its good ratings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We had a lovely meal with ambience and romantic ballads, great service, and for a price that makes the restaurant a really good deal to boot. Portions are very generous, I'd suggest sharing the main course, both of our plates were enough for two persons, especially with a starter.
