    I live just ten minutes from Limoncello and always find an excuse to go. Whether you are going on a date, or going with your family, you can't go wrong! Portions are very large, and service is usually on top of everything. This particular night our server was just OK. Sunday-Tuesday you can BYOB for a $5 cork fee. Happy hour is really great too...if you can get a seat!

    We have eaten here many times and cannot find any meal even remotely off of excellent. Their calamari is about the best in the world - never had it less than tender and delicious. Meatballs are authentic and the overall presentation is great - such a perfect setting in the borough of West Chester!

    We dined at Lemoncello Saturday night with 3 teenagers-all of us loved our meals!! The waiter was super friendly and made sure the kids got exactly what they wanted. The wine list is fabulous but the lemoncello as the after dinner drink is a great way to end a delicious and fun meal!!

    Limoncello came highly recommended by many friends so I chose it for a recent birthday lunch. My friend had been previously and said she thought it was so so but I still wanted to try it out. The main dining room was crowded and lacked the cozy, intimate, upscale feel I had anticipated. That said, the outdoor dining area is spacious and inviting with just the right number of tables to seat several parties without feeling cramped. The lunch menu featured many offerings but I was surprised no wood burning oven pizza. The buffet, which I was told was their most popular selection, look tired and unappetizing. Our servers were pleasant but overcharged for our beverages. Overall, a fine but not fabulous experience.

    i entertained friends from San Diego. We ended up having 11 for dinner. I changed the reservation 3 times and each time they were even friendlier and accommodating. One of my guests travels fir a living and said it was his best Italian meal ever. Our table was ready the minute we walked in. Our service was impeccable(a server got on his hands and knees to fix a slightly wobbling table. The food was awesome as usual. I didn't think I could rave any more about this place than I have already but they stepped up their game even more. I could not have been more pleased.

    We have always enjoyed dining at both Limoncello locations. This time the pork chop was pounded very thin and was dry. The tomato sauce was under cooked. My husband's veal chop was just OK. It will be quite a while till we return.

    Limoncello offers consistently very good Italian food and plenty of it; we always have enough for lunch the next day or perhaps even dinner. We ate outside on a pleasant evening, away from the noise that is usually present inside, and enjoyed it very much. We started with complimentary bruschetta and finished with complimentary Limoncello liqueur. In between, the mussels were very good as were the halibut and lobster risotto entrees. Lisa's service was great.

    Happily the weather was perfect for sitting outside to enjoy our first time at Limoncello. Service was really good (Andrew was our waiter, and we had additional wait staff to keep our glasses filled with water). We liked their twist on a Bellini and their Limoncello martini. They made a small salad to order, as the menu salads seemed very generous. Entrees were super (Red Snapper special and the Shrimp and Crab Meat Fra Diavolo). Definitely want to go back again!

    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.
