“Great atmosphere, lovely food, friendly staff.”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Went for a family meal, 7 persons, Saturday evening. Buzzing ambience. Not our first visit, but probably the most memorable. We were welcomed warmly, & drinks soon served. 2 of the party were a few minutes late, but no problem. Menu full of enticing choices. Food all very good. Great evening. Will definitely be back.

“Mums Birthday dinner”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We had a fantastic evening, a set meal for 10 people last nite. Food was excellent and at a very reasonable price. One of the party, who eats out in some of Londons best places, said it was the best filet steak she had ever eaten. The rack of lamb was to die for. We had a 12yr old with us, who isn't keen on sauces but they catered for her perfectly The service was second to none and the waiting staff were very attentive. The meal was finished with lovely desserts , chocolate almond cake with pistachio ice cream was said to be devine. All topped off with a complimentary limoncello. The atmosphere was great and the place was packed ,which surprised us so soon after new years. The only criticism I have it there was no disable toilet that I could see and one of our party was 83 and had to be accompanied to the loos which were upstairs. We are looking forward to going back to eat here very soon.

“An Excellent Meal in Abingdon”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Having had a very poor meal just before Christmas at another well known nearby restaurant we went to Limoncello on New Year`s Eve. The restaurant had been tastefully decorated for the festive season and there were decorations on the tables.
All they dishes my wife and I had were excellently cooked, nicely presented and unlike some restaurants now were hot. The prices including those for the wines were reasonable and unlike many restaurants a desert wine was also on offer.
The service was timely, friendly and efficient. From our experience we would not hesitate to recommend Limoncello.

“Portions too big dated decor”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

We went here after hearing many good reviews. As we entered for a 6pm booking we were slightly early and the first customers of the evening we walked in and the waiter was smoking in the back hall behind the counter probably stood near a door but either way we could see and smell smoke not very nice. The service was good and food came out in good time. The portions sizes were huge! Me and my partner both have a good appetite and neither could finish out meals. The food was nice bit could do with a refresh update to the menu smaller portions with more quality and the restaurent defo needs a refurb! Dated. But credit to the service as the waiters were attentive.

“Unbelievably bad ! ”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Having read numerous good reviews we were looking forward to visiting the restaurant. My summary is as follows . The menu does not in any way describe the food that comes out of the kitchen I had veal escalope which came out of the kitchen swimming in a plate of sauce that was awful! It had asparagus that was like mushy peas floating around in the dish simply awful and not worth the 12.95 not even on par with airplane food . My girlfriend had the pasta special which was indeed special it was cold in the centre and again swimming in an unknown sauce . Presumably to cover up the raw pasta . Restaurants can make mistakes and that's fine but they made no offer of substitute or apology . Why do people go here??? It's terrible .... I asked why the asparagus was so soggy and I was told they used tinned asparagus and that people like it soggy. There are far better places in Abingdon to visit we won't be returning . Ever
