Very lovely haven in kinshasa - clearly not local food. Great pizzas, attentive service. I visited during the European football championships and game showing on big projector screen - lively atmosphere. Prices $$$ - we spent $100 for 2 starters, 2 pizzas and a couple of drinks. But very nice.

I was working in Kinshasa for a couple of weeks in May/June 2016 and was mostly based out of my office and hotel but I found the time to visit Limoncello twice. I sat outside both times and enjoyed the garden setting while watching the pizza chefs in action. The food is a great standard and prices reasonable (for Kinshasa).... More

Lives up to the expectation. Really probably one of the best in Kin. Nice garden of a villa though having no view. A bit too long menu but fine. Delicious food. A bit slow to get the attention of the waiter and to order. Accepts MasterCard. Recommended!

Limoncello is located in one of the commercial areas in Kinshasa. This place provides authentic Italian food with amazing thin crust wood burn pizzas. The decor and the ambience was really good. It is very good place to visit with family, friends and business meetings as well.

The wood-fired pizza are just great, like the pasta and starters. You cannot go to Kinshasa and not experience the Limoncello

I still do not understand why, but Limoncello seems to be the most popular place in Kinshasa. It is nicely set up, with enough space for outside seating. The food menu is comprehensive and offers options for different tastes. The service is the usual bad service that kinshasa is famous for. But none of it stands out, maybe because they... More

Very nice location. Modern, originally decorated. Doesn't look very African. Safe place. Decent food. Great atmosphere. Average service. You pay a lot but you get a lot too!
