“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Went to this restaurant on a cold rainy night. but the warmth of the welcome and atmosphere vanished it the minute we sat down. The waiter was very friendly and helpful on explaining the menu. But the best was yet to come: the food was absolutely delicious! For dessert we had a mix of sweet courses, including pannacota and tiramisu, and the tiramisu was definitely my favourite. After the meal, as it was raining cats and dogs, the manager said we could stay as long as we wanted and even offered us a lemon licor (limoncello). Well, I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone and I will go there again many times.

“Not what we expected!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

After reading some good reviews we decided to have dinner at Limoncello. We were asked if we would like to have a bottle of red wine "a special Portugues wine of the week "Monte de Amante, reserva 2008" for only €14,50
The wine was not special at all and you can buy the bottle of wine at the supermarket for only €2,99. So don't take this red wine!
The starter, salmon carpaccio was still froozen and the bottom of my pizza, "Pizza Marinara" was not crispy. We were very disappointed!!
However the waiter was friendly and the tiramisu was really tasty.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This lovely little place was a wonderful discovery for us. The welcome was excellent and we were lead upstairs to a cosy candlelit restaurant where the atomosphere was lovely. The service was quick but not hurried. The cover was better than the usual, consisting of wonderful fresh bread rolls with a fantastic crab mix, olives and good quality dipping olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We both had the best pasta dish we have ever had in an Italian restaurant. Spaghetti with lemon rind, anchovies, garlic, chilli and black olives the balance of which was superb! The Portugese wine we had was the best ever (7.80Euros!) and the desserts equally so! It was pouring with rain as we made to leave the restaurant and we paused a while talking to the ? owner who offered us a shot of limoncello which was the perfect end to a perfect night. Well worth a visit. Well done. Yvonne and Martin - DUNDEE SCOTLAND

“Would give this more than 5 stars if I could!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

What a lovely place! We stumbled on this restaurant by accident ( by luck!) and if we lived in Lisbon, it would be a regular "haunt" for us. Where to begin...the staff are excellent. Multi-lingual and very pleasant & knowledgeable about everything on the menu, including appropriate wine suggestions. We had some prosecco to start and although we were brought a lovely platter of olives, bread & pate as a starter, we declined as we had had a light appie at another locale earlier. I had the "ensalada limoncello" which was just perfect - consisted of some prawns, salmon, tomatoes, basil & mozzarella. As I do not eat red meat or pork, I requested they eliminate that part of the salad from my order. A very big salad, more than filling. My husband had spaghetti with clams and it arrived perfectly cooked and steaming hot. He said it was perfect and enjoyed every bite! I had a small glass of limoncello for my dessert (!) and my husband had tiramisu, which he thoroughly enjoyed. We left this restaurant with full, content tummies and if time permitted, would definitely go back for another meal. Lovely ambiance and a very comfortable, welcoming establishment. Go & enjoy. Just because you are in Portugal doesn't mean every meal has to be Portuguese cuisine!!!!
