    Busy neighborhood restaurant worth stopping in (make sure you have a weekend reservation or plan a week night when it is quieter). The staff work very hard here to bring your dinners out hot. Bring your own.

    I want to love this place but the food is just not consistent. You can order the same dish each time and find it appears and tastes different each time. I do not understand why, as I find other restaurants that are more consistent. Also, needs upgrade on presentation. Service is accommodating and friendly.

    Food was OK, but the service was very slow, granted it was a Saturday night and very busy. The wait staff seemed to be very inexperienced. As a matter of fact, the owner's wife told us that her sons were waitering that night, so maybe that is why the service seemed uneven. It was very noisy and the tables seemed close together. We were seated as soon as we arrived and gave our reservation to the hostess. For a local neighborhood restaurant I would recommend going on a weekday night when it wouldn't be as crowded and possibly the service a little better.

    Small and cozy BYOB. Service was very good and very attentive. Owner came over several times. Food was very good. I would recommend the appy : Ginger calamari and main course was seafood risotto. Good size portions and very tasty. Will recommend to others.

    Limoncello's has become one of our local favorites. The food is good, the menu good, and the service attentive--but not annoying. The owner (?) always seems to be on premises--checking to see if things are going okay and to his credit sometimes helping out. Has become popular so our large group had to wait a while--even tho' we had a reservation,

    This was our second time to Limoncello and we weren't disappointed. We had a rather noisy bunch and a group that takes their time ordering because they are so busy talking. The staff was attentive without being overly so. The food was fantastic, try as many appetizers as you can, everyone raved about the rock shrimp and the mussels. I am usually not a huge fan of calamari but theirs is fantastic. We will definitely be coming back here.

    Having eaten here at least 10 times over the last year and a half, I have yet to be disappointed. Food is good esp the chicken with poached pear. Both staff and management are very accommodating. Frequently, a I have found the staff placing some appetizer on our table, gratis. Noise levels are low enough so that conversations can easily take place with dinner companions. Prices are reasonable and it is a BYOB. I have never felt rushed and dinner is a true social experience.

    The food was delicious. The service was unprofessional, slow, unapologetic. Not one server, hostess, host looked like they wanted to be there. Expressionless. It was more like a funeral. Our party was disappointed in the total dining experience. It was Mother's Day. This is not a new restaurant, so they should be prepared for high volume at their restaurant. Also, the restaurant needs some serious updating with their décor.

    My fiancee and I ate an early Easter dinner at Limoncello, which is a family-run restaurant. We were greeted warmly and treated very well even though they were extremely busy! The food was excellent. BYOB.

    One of the best Italian meals that we've had outside of Italy. Great service, food and presentation. A must visit if you want a memorable dining experience.
