“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Was planning on eating here having seen tipped by a few places but then was going to steer clear as we're warned the night (Wednesdays) we were going is Karoeke night. Needless to say limonis main competitor Club 1887 in Nicolosi is closed on Wednesday so we ended up in Limoni after all!

The dining room is beautiful however unfortunately for us it was closed for the night as the Kareoke takes place in a semi permanent marquee out the back of the restaurant with dining tables and a small bar. This was a shame and while we never requested to be indoors (to see if it was possible) it did kinda detract from the main selling point of the restaurant (the dining room)

Food was good, we had house rustic starter, mushroom ravioli, gnocchi dish, limone pistachio tart and a decent red picked personally from the wine rack with the help of the owner...who then via the waiters through in a couple of complimentary dessert wines as well...all for a shade over 50 Eur which thought was very reasonable.

I am sure on a normal night/ambience would score this restaurant higher just avoid Wednesdays unless you want to watch/listen to a few Sicilians murder some Italian cover records.

“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We visited this restaurant on a Friday evening. We had a wonderful meal in a relaxing atmosphere. The staff was nice and the food was good. The pizzas were huge. Would recommend this restaurant to those who spend the day at the etna and then want a good meal in a rustic place.

“Nice place with authentic Sicilian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Despite the terrible service (it took us 20 minutes to get a menu), we had a very tasteful sample of typical Sicilian food with fresh local ingredients. The desserts were also great.
