    We heard good things about your restaurant and decided to take my brother there for his birthday - what a wonderful experience. This time we took our foodie son and his girlfriend. They are still talking about the food (presentation and taste), inviting atmosphere and top-notch service. You are 5 stars in our book. See you soon!

    We've been to Limoncello several times, we've even used it for catering for parties. Their food never disappoints! Everything comes out hot and fresh and delicious! All the employees are so so nice and attentive. Our service this particular evening was a little on the slow side, but I could tell that the restaurant was short staffed that night. That's no one's fault, so it won't prevent us from visiting again!

    Great bruchetta though not much of it. Caesar salad had a non-traditional dressing to me; I figured a good Italian restaurant would have a more authentic dressing. The risotto special was ok but not spectacular. Good desserts though small portions. The best thing was the service. It was excellent.

    What a shame that the lunch buffet, with so many great options, is lukewarm. The pizza is homemade but I like my pizza hot. The meatballs have a great flavor but, again, I like my meat hot. However, the price is right, the salads are good and I even received a complimentary refill of my diet coke. Service was perfect!

    The food at Limonchello's was the most amazing substance I have ever had the good fortune to taste. I was blown away with the flavor of my meal. Limonchello is the place to eat if you want your dining experience to supersede anything you have ever experienced before.

    Limoncello was very accommodating for our large group of 8 who were there to celebrate after I had just proposed to my girlfriend (now fiancé). Our service was incredible and the food was tremendous as always. We had a few special requests for champagne which were also fulfilled in a timely and generous manner. Thanks to Limoncello for making such a special day even more significant.

    Great service, very noisy due to being a busy night. Apps and salad were great but the entrees a big disappointment. Lobster tail was rubber and portions were way too big. Could not eat half of it. Sauce on pasta was bland, veal was dry and bland. With so many choices in West Chester, I will not eat here again.

    I have been to Limoncello several times. The food is always good. I had the sweet sausage broccoli rabe appetizer and the veal involtini. Both were delicious. My friend had the pork chop. Terrific!The service is good, too. Especially this night, it was incredibly crowded yet our server remained attentive and friendly. The noise level is the only difficult here. It is very very loud--so much so that it can be hard to engage in conversation.

    Great mango and strawberry salad and fabulous vodka sauce on rigatoni with seafood… and the lobster special risotto was quite fine-- the CRAZY BEST WAS, we tried 4 different desserts!!! The best, the limoncello cake. Next, the Bomba, a peanut butter and chocolate ball! The next fav was the pistachio ice cream homemade! … and then the pistachio cheesecake… they follow with a complimentary shot of limoncello… watch out! ;-) … … seat yourself on the quiet side, because it can get LOUD. The server was THE BEST!!!! :-)

    Erlynstar299
    Dined on 8/11/2014
    Limoncello is a nice restaurant. Food is good and pricing is reasonable. But the noise level was so annoying that my wife and I found ourselves skipping coffee and dessert just to get out of there. There was a large group of young men that acted as if they were in a sports bar watching an Eagles game rather than what we used to think was a more upscale romantic restaurant. I think that if management had stepped in, things would have been different, but even the wait staff seem to prefer to join the "fun" in the back rather than calm things down or service their tables. I am all for having a good time, but there are places in WC where someone can yell across the room, grab a beer and loudly talk sports. Lemoncello is not that place.

    We loved the food. We asked to be seated on the upper level away from the bar, which we were, because we were warned about the noise on the lower level with the bar . However the table right in back of us screamed through their entire meal. We could not hear ourselves. It spoiled the entire dining experience. Our waitress , Nicole was fabulous. One other problem , not the restaurant's fault, was there was a bike race right outside of the restaurant, so we had to park 6 blocks away, and our friend has a difficult time walking,especially on WestChester's cobble stone sidewalks. All the streets were closed to traffic,so we could not drop him off close to the restaurant.
