I have dined at Bistro Limoncello many times for personal and business dinners. Service has always been very good and the food has never let me down.

Love the Bistro Limoncello!
Love the Bistro Limoncello! The service was terrific, we were greeted warmly as we entered. The bartender was very friendly and recommended different drinks/wines. Our server was great. We all had different dinners from Seafood Marco to Chicken Francais, both were fabulous. Great atmospher and great time at the Bistro!!

A hidden lively gem
This was my first time at Limoncello & I was thrilled with my experience. Making a reservation on Open table was easy & we were seated promptly.Excellent table for two in the bar/lounge area with a fantastic view of the busy open kitchen. Live music (Frank Sinatra-like singer who was spot on)The owner was present and mingled with guests. We started with the brushetta with feta cheese,fresh diced tomatoes and onions over garlic toast.For our entrees we had the Haddock and the Pollo Limone.Both dishes were mouth watering but not heavy. Light,fresh and perfectly cooked. We split the tarimisu which was simple yet perfectly made&an after dinner Limoncello.This was one of the best meals thatI have had out in a long time! Will be back.

Upscale Italian fare
Service, selection, and presentation all very good. Atmosphere is modern, open, and maybe a bit noisy so not so much the place for a quiet romantic evening but not so loud that you can't hold a conversation. A bit on the pricey side but worth it if you are looking for a quality night out for a special event or anytime you want to splurge a bit for a great meal. Better than you'd expect for a suburban store front location. If you like Romaine's, Northborough's other well known eatery, you'll probably like it here as well.

Great upscale Italian fare
We were a party of four who ordered appetizers, cocktails and entrees which met with rave reviews from all of us. Our server was friendly and attentive without making us feel rushed. Our reservation was available and ready at the stated time. The owner could be seen roaming the premises with a watchful eye making sure everyone was taken care of.

This neighborhood restaurant is one of our favorites. We go there with groups or just as a couple, and each time we come away satisfied. On this last occasion we tried the limoncello dessert drink at the encouragement of the owner, and we loved it! May just have to add this tasty treat to the end of italian meals from now on.

Great place close to home
We really enjoyed our food. The service was very good as well. I had read reviews stating how long it took to get the food, but we did not have that problem. The timing was really perfect. The food was fantastic as well. Looking forward to another visit!

What a beautiful restaurant and great food. The Chicken Parm is awesome. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. It has a nice little outside eating area and was playing Frank Sinatra music while we were there. Definitely will go again.

Everything excellent...however...extra charge for one meatballl...was extraordinary...ten dollars...

GREAT place all around
We met another couple here for dinner. None of us had been here before, but figured we try it out. We were greeted by the owner who showed us to our table. The tables are nicely spread out so the noise level was very quite. The meatball appetizer was out of this world...the best we've ever tasted. Everything was exceptional. The sauce was perfect, pasta was cooked just right. We never felt rushed. The tiramisu was the best my wife had ever tasted. We will definitely be back again. Thank you for such a nice relaxing, delicious meal.

The North End meets Northborough
We had a wonderful dining experience at Bistro Limoncello. The food, service, and atmosphere were excellent. Loved the veal Francaise and the Veal Saltimbocca. Risotto was nicely done as well. Very friendly staff, perfect music for a more intimate dining experience, They have a great wine selection and nicely handcrafted cocktails too. We will definitely return!

The food and service were both very good. It's nice to have a great Italian restaurant that's nearby, not just in Boston's North End.

We went in for Restaurant
We went in for Restaurant Week and we were pleasantly surprised. We ordered appetizers off the menu that were fabulous! The Restaurant menu gave us a great taste of the calamari and main courses plus the fabulous Tiramasu. The owner was there and very congenial. This is a place we will definitely go back to.

First time visitors
Overall, our dinner was very enjoyable. Our waitress was great - she was personable and attentive. Water glasses were re-filled without asking, and the food was excellent (did note that they were not offering any special entrees, etc.). Wine selection seemed to be much smaller than what was on their website, but still quite adequate. The restaurant was very clean, and not too loud. We ate inside, but the tables outside were lovely, too. Would definitely go there again!

What a birthday!
We had reservation for 7pm and were seated promptly. The waitstaff was very attentive. Water,warm bread and drinks were refilled promptly. Tables were stationed at the proper distance so there was no overcrowding. Our dinners were delicious and we were made to feel as if we were dining at someone's home. We enjoyed the chicken piccata and the sole francais. Fish was fresh and the chicken was not overcooked. This is truly a gem in the tiny town of Northborough. We are sure to be back in the near future and have already spread the word that this bistro is something special.

We'd avoided this place due to the mixed reviews since moving to the area three years ago. I must say, I wish we had gone sooner! Service was good (they needed us to move to a new table because some older customers wanted to hear the singer in the bar-area, asked really nicely, offered to buy us a drink - which they forgot but that's okay since we had a bottle of wine)and the food was very tasty. The only negative thing I can say was that our beef carpaccio had a piece of the plastic wrap that it was wrapped up in and was a bit too cold- borderline frozen in some spots. We figured, hey- at least it was cold and not room temp :)

Unique and awesome martinis. Food is excellent as well as dessert.

Great armosphere, food was wonderful and the singer sounded just like Sinatra

Great night of dining!
It was possibly one of the best dining experiences I have had in a long time and it began prior to me even arriving to your restaurant. I called about an hour prior to our reservation time and requested a table for 4 verse a table for 2 in which the response was "we will make it happen" and you did. When we arrived we had time to have a drink and our table was ready at the requested time. Although I have visited your restaurant on several occasions prior to this visit the couple I brought along had never been. We were all impressed with the level of service, quality of food and the overall atmosphere of the restaurant.

It was all good.
From the appetizer to the main course and finally desert. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Bistro Limoncello.
Add Two glasses of wine and we ate for just under $100. The service was great.
Here's why I am taking the time to write this....I ordered the Filet Mignon... Medium and it came to me a PERFECT MEDIUM, Textbook, not a little too pink or a little to dark....right on the money. The filet itself was as good as any I've had at Morton's or Ruth Chris and the price was much less.

Better than last time
This was my 3-strikes-and-your-out dinner at Limoncellos. I've been there about 6 times, 3 times it was excellent, and 3 times It wasn't good at all - either because of the food or usually because of the service (or both).
We were seated in the nicely and newly redone bar area. Service was perfect the whole night. The food portions were HUGE - enough take home for another meal. I had the chicken parm, - 3 large, slightly burned cutlets with a large bowl of pasta (your choice) and sauce. It was good, but Bertucci's and Olive Garden's is better (and cheaper). The peanut-butter pie was to die for. Prices are too high for the food, IMO. But we'll probably go back, since Limoncello's didn't 'strike out' this night.

Great meal! Food was fresh and delicious, menu items were authentic and not the usual cheap imitations of Italian dishes often found in New England. Staff was somewhat limited, but performed as best they could.
