Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant is an amazing find. The service was great and the food was incredible. We had enough to take home to enjoy for lunch the next day. Great place and we will go back there many more times this summer."

  • "We had a party of eight. Our table was in a small intimate room, as I had requested. The food and service were first rate. We brought our own wine, and the corking fee was reasonable."

  • "Great food and service. The group I brought really enjoyed the dinner"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "We were very fortunate to find this place and to get such an excellent server. Though we stayed up until closing time, we never felt rushed to get out the door. Many thanks for helping to make for such a memorable night."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "This was my first visit to Limoncello and they were very helpful with a food allergy. I had the strawberry and mango salad with grilled salmon and I can honestly say this salmon was the best I have had in a very long time. It was so fresh and cooked and seasoned perfectly."

  • "Everyone loved what they got, and the staff couldn't have been any friendlier. Very pleased, and enjoyed sitting outside."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food and the service was excellent, the seating arrangement leaves a lot to be desired."

  • "Limoncello - West Chester has great food and excellent service. We can not wait to go back again."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We've eaten at Limoncello several times in the past. On this occasion the service was slow and spotty. Additionally, the gnocchi my wife and I ordered was obviously frozen/store-bought. We realize you're not going to find fine dining in West Chester, but if you're paying to dine out at an Italian restaurant, at the very least the pasta should be fresh."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We had our first bad experience at Limoncello. The service was spotty at best. Our waiter was aloof and seemed unconcerned about our comfort and happiness. The food, which is usually very good, was very plain this time. Me Veal Involtini was tough and tasteless, while my wife's Chicken Parm was not up to the restaurant's usual standards. The tomato sauce was tasteless and the chicken was gristly and the pasta was overcooked. To top it off, no Limoncello at the end of our meal. Very Disappointed!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Great server. I wish I could have remembered his name. The meal was very good. What I don't understand is after making reservations, why the hostess first tried to seat us at the back of the restaurant where the kitchen staff would be zipping in & out. She did agree to move us. Maybe I need to express when making the reservation where we don't like to be seated. Just assumed they would use that area as a last resort."

  • "The food was excellent, service was great and did not have wait long for our food to arrive."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food was delicious as always. The wait staff that just brings your food, not or actual waiter but the runners, really throws your food at you in a blur. Or main issue that put a damper on our meal though was that our 4-year-old' s kid's meal wasn't only not brought out as soon as possible, before the other meals, as most restaurants are considerate enough to do, but came out last, clearly an afterthought just out of the fryer bc it was too hot to eat until we were all finished our meals and had fed him from our plates so it was kind of pointless."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "It's been some time since my last visit. Sadly, this time service was slower than I recall. It is extremely loud and tables are very close together. I would much rather have smaller portions at more reasonable prices. My entree could easily have fed two and still take home enough for a meal. But my biggest been is that the "family" feel is gone. I miss the original little family-run neighborhood eatery where I was a regular."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Nice high energy place with good service and food choices. Large wine list where prices quickly become ridiculous. I enjoyed my seafood ravioli but my wife was less than thrilled with her bland swordfish risotto. The mussels in white wine broth appetizer was too "fishy". Avoid the tap water - chlorine taste. Might give it a second chance."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The dining pleasure of a lifetime: great food with a wonderful selection, plus daily dinner specials; each one sounding better than the last. The overall experience was amazing with ample room to sit and chat but not so far apart that you feel removed from what is going on around you. Romantic yet quaint- the perfect place to relax and enjoy a fabulous meal. The staff was warm and friendly and courtious. This will definitely become a regular place to eat for ys!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Chicken Messina was delicious, as were the bruscetta, crab & avocado and calamari apps. The fettucini Alfredo dinner was slightly bland, but ravioli was also awesome. Very loud inside but outside was enjoyable."

  • "Excellent choice for father's day. The cheese/meat platter is huge - enough to share for the table. Lobster Ravioli excellent as always!"

  • "I made a reservation over 3 months in advance to celebrate a graduation and called to confirm the reservation 2 days prior. The party of 9 arrived on time and still had to wait over 25 minutes to be seated. I felt as if we were inconveniencing the staff by our presence."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Had such a great meal here. Went out for my sister's birthday and we had the calamari fritti, the meat and cheese plate, and then split an entree of the stuffed salmon. The service was impeccable and the cocktails were even better. Still very pricey even though we split an entree. Very great place for special occassion. Salmon was nothing special but the mashed potatoes with it were divine. And even though we split it, they served it to us on two separate plates with a super generous portion. Definitely want to try a pasta dish next time."

  • "Food was excellent. My wife and I both had the Salmon stuffed with Crab Imperial. It was excellent!! The flavor was amazing, cooked to perfection and presented nicely with flavorful sides. Wine selection was good! The desserts delicious! We ate outside and it was a nice evening, although the tables are tightly packed. Inside the noise level was very high. The service was efficient, courteous, and friendly."

  • "The lunch buffet was amazing and reasonably priced. Can't wait to go back again!!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We have been to Limoncello before and love it, which is why we return. This visit left us annoyed though. The food was great as always, however, we felt as though we were being forced out around 10pm when asked 3 times in less than 10 minutes if we wanted to box up our dishes, a dirty dish was left on our table by our server as a drive-by signaling the bus person to ask us AGAIN if we wanted to box our dinners... ok... enough! Our reservation was at 845, and around 930/10 we were being forced to leave after a bottle of wine and higher priced meals? She had asked us if we wanted dessert and coffee... was she serious? We went elsewhere. Limoncello needs to remember that sometimes, there are customers that don't always get a night out."

  • "We are new to West Chester and we heard from several friends that we had to try Limoncello. We made reservations for a Sunday evening and requested outside. We were disappointed to hear that there was a one hour plus wait for outdoor seating. We chose not to wait (we had a reservation!) and ate inside. It was loud and crowded with very little privacy, but the food was very good. I had the veal medallions with shrimp and crab, a special for the night, and enjoyed it, taking some home for lunch the next day. My husband had the bolognese sauce and he enjoyed it, but he has had better (including my bolognese sauce!). The shots of limoncello were a great surprise at the end of our meal. We will return!!!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • " The menu has changed slightly since our last visit. A few new items and higher prices. We usually stick to the appetizers and salads, although the entrees are excellent, just too much food for us. My husband had the Insalata Di Salmone which included a good size piece of salmon, asparagus, goat cheese, and the usual salad greens and tomatoes. I had the Grigliata de Pesce, an appetizer, but large enough to be an entrée salad. It was loaded with grilled shrimp, scallops and squid, arugula and capers. We tried a new appetizer, crab with avocado. It had a lot of mozzarella chunks it and could have used a little more crab. Still it was good, and the pesto dressing was great with the bread that comes with the meals."

  • "I took my husband to Limoncello for his birthday. We ate outside and were impressed with the lively atmosphere and the food was fantastic. It was REAL food, not the typical (ordered from a food distributor frozen kind) restaurant food. It was like how my mom cooked - with fresh ingredients. My husband had the Veal Chop (bone in) Parmesan (med well done - about 1.5 inch thick) with Fettuccine pasta. I had one of the the specials, Chilean Sea Bass on real mashed potatoes and asparagus. Sorry, there wasn't any room left for dessert, so I can't tell you how good it actually was, but the dessert menu still made my mouth water! Limoncello can accommodate the hungry masses! Great staff!!!"

  • "First experience at Limoncello. Drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts were equally delicious! In particular we loved the Stuffed Pauly Pepper as a starter and the Limoncello Cake for dessert. It was nothing short of amazing! Our server was attentive and added to an excellent experience. One of us had a seafood allergy and she noticed it right away and was the one who suggested the stuffed Pauly Pepper versus the Arancini, which tends to be fried with the calamari. Looking forward to dining there again in the near future. Would highly recommend to others."

  • "I love to cook & I love to eat! I'm not easy to please at a restaurant because I know what I like and what I don't like. Our waiter accommodated each request of both myself & my husband and our meals were outstanding. The Insalata Alla Dina was magnificent, as usual, every ingredient was fresh & delicious topped off by the raspberry vinaigrette dressing-heavenly! Both our seafood entrees were cooked to order and the seafood was perfect as were the sauces."

  • "If you like Italian food in generous proportions, this is the restaurant for you. Located right in West Chester, there is a nice patio area out-front for dining. Quaint bar inside and a nice atmosphere. Menu is just big enough to really make you think about what to get, but not overwhelming. Excellent desserts and martinis. Wait staff is incredibly attentive and friendly. Great experience all around. "
