    We dine here regularly and the food quality is declining which is disappointing. If a nightly special runs out before 7:30 it makes you wonder. At the very least it indicates poor planning, at worst the special May have been "leftovers". Also suggest the managers/owners take a closer look at cleanliness, especially the restrooms.

    My husband and I decided to take the kids with us to celebrate our 18th Wedding Anniversary. Seating was available immediately even though we arrived a bit earlier than our reservation time on a Saturday evening. Waitress was very polite, attentive and assisted with suggestions. Entrees were delicious and beyond satisfying portions. Save room for dessert, I'm glad I did!

    My Open Table reservation and table were available upon arrival. The service was average. Waitress didn't even know crab cakes was on the dinner menu. She thought it was a bar appetizer. The cocktails had limited alcohol in them even though I paid for top shelf brands. Th crab cakes were delicios as was the pescatore. However, the tiny lobster tale in the pescatore was tough and tasteless. The spicy sauce made up for it. Overall, good food but I didn't see where the reputation as a fine dining establishment was earned.

    I live in WC and love the WC Limoncello, but it's hard to get in with late reservations for a larger group. the Chester Springs Limoncello is every bit as good and way easier to make late reservations with (at least for now!)

    Arrived early and was seated immediately. Our waiter was very attentive. Food was absolutely delicious. I love this restaurant and location, way better than the one located in West Chester which has no space and is very cramped. So grateful they opened a location up in Chester Springs! I've never had a bad meal here!

    We have previously dined at Limoncello and as in prior visits the food was delicious and the service was excellent. Our visit was on a Tuesday night so it was not crowded making conversation easier as there wasn't too much loud talking from other patrons. Enjoyed our dinner and will be returning again.

    2nd time dining at Limoncello and perhaps because it was Labor Day weekend that the service was lacking and the dish I ordered had little taste. Seated at a table for 2 that my husband said was sticky and needed to be wiped down again. Rather than taking care of it immediately, waitress made an excuse and said that it was that way because of the wood - table was granite! My dish was the eggplant with ricotta and rigatoni with a plum tomato sauce. Unfortunately, the dish had little taste to it. Disappointed dining there this time, but will try it again perhaps at a time not on a holiday weekend.

    We were dining out for our anniversary and had good meals in past visits. This time was no different. Our server was great and gave us a great recommendation for dessert: a Chocolate Mousse Candy Apple that was delicious! Of course the generous portions had us taking home some leftovers, but that is ok with us. We would recommend this to friends.

    We've dined at Limoncellos (West Chester) on several occasions. First trip to Chester Springs, The food was top notch as usual, service was on point, very attentive. One major disappointment is the dining room tables are so close together both my wife and I got bumped 4 times by adjoining tables, servers bumped the table another 4 times trying to get by, plus the 2 top table were so small or entrée plates were hanging over the edge. We felt like the table next to us were part of our party.

    Our party of 8 all chose the lunchtime buffet. There was a nice variety but the cheese ravioli was a standout for several of us. Next time we head straight for that! The service was wonderful. Our server (Debra) gave us some brief, very interesting background on the origins of the restaurant, and outdid herself with extra service for special requests. She was remarkable.

Brushetta and fresh bread was also delicious. Had some specialty cocktails which were great as well. Went for a special occasion and it impressed the birthday girl!

    My sister was visiting from California and we decided to have a relaxing lunch. Our time together at Limoncello was wonderful. The ambience was beautiful and relaxing. We were able to have a conversation without having to talk over noise or loud music and didn't feel like we were being overheard by other patrons. The food was outstanding. My sister commented that there were no words to describe how good her veal entrée was.

    Amazing food, gorgeous restaurant, easy to get reservations, delish! Excellent wait staff (although some waiters gather in a common area and stare at the guests while waiting on their tables so that's awkward). Every time I dine here I have wonderful service from front to back. Tables are too small but that's OK, they make up for it with HUGE portions that could serve a family. I'm so thrilled to have a Limoncello in Chester Springs!

    We had a great experience at the West Chester location, so we were really looking forward to this location. The service was dreadful and when our waitress came over (shocked our food wasn't ready) she said she would contact the manager. Nothing came from it. Never saw a manager other than seeing him standing around the entrance area. A very long and pricey 2.5 hour dinner. After it was all said and done, the entire experience put a bad taste in our mouth. Not sure if we'll come back.

    I had shrimp, scallops, and crab over rigatoni in a vodka cream sauce. It was amazing. It was loaded with lump crab meat. The sauce was very tasty. Our server was attentive and went above and beyond. The bread was fresh and dessert was delicious. We had a table inside, and then we saw there was outside seating. She heard us talking about it, and she offered to move us. She quickly found a table for us outside, even though it was a packed Saturday night. We left happy and full, and with leftovers for the next day.

    This place is widely praised and talked about in this area. Our feeling is that generally speaking, for the price the food quality is just not there. That is not to say the food is bad - it's good but not great. Can get cramped when crowded, so not a lot of ambiance. Probably better if you're a party of 4-6, it's just not that intimate for 2.

    The food we had was very good and the drinks were yummy. My only beef with this place is that it's VERY tight, the tables are really close together so we always go around 5-ish. I wish they had more room at the bar too. I can never find a seat, even went once at 4:00 and it was still full.

    Excellent food and a very cordial waiter, Adam. The only drawback was an exceptionally long time between appetizers and the dinner. As we were with friends and needed to catch up, the time gap was not terrible. The limoncello after dinner is always a nice touch.

    We picked Limoncello for an evening out with great food and time spent together. We did get great service and excellent appetizers and entrees, but the table for two was VERY small to be able to accommodate our apps and huge dinner plates. It was also situated in the middle of the room which by 7:30 was very hard to talk with one another given the surrounding noise level. I think we would choose to sit else where next time. Thank you for a very nice evening!!
