We went for lunch and sat outside which was nice altho the metal chairs would have been more comfortable if they had cushions.
I had the fig/argula flatbread pizza which was very good; I would only suggest that since it was a flatbread it could have been thinner which I was expecting, this flatbread was thick like a regular pizza. Other than that it was great.
My friend had the penne with seafood which was excellent.
Another suggestion would be to include one or two low carb options other than salad for those of us who are watching our carbs. Thank you!

We went for my daughter's birthday. I had made the reservation (for 5 of us) about a month prior. We arrived early, checked in and asked for the dining room, and said we wanted to get a drink at the bar first - no problem. When we came back to the hostess (10 mins past our reservation time) they seated us in "The Box" which is an area of tables behind the bar. They put us in a booth. The seating in the booth was totally destroyed - the leather-ette was pulled up to the bare backing and the seating on the other side (also a bench) was awfully uncomfortable - springs, sagging and the table hit between two cushions of different levels).

The meal was so-so. My husband and two others loved theirs, but my daughter and I did not care for ours at all - bland.

Sorry Limoncello!

Delicious as always! Came here spur of the moment to visit with out of town friends-our food was delicious and service was on point. We have been coming here for years and we have never been disappointed with our dinner. Perfect go-to for authentic Italian cuisine. Portion sizes are overly generous (for pasta-you probably get about a half pound) -so I suggest that if you are carb/calorie counting, ask for a box with your meal so you can control your portions, before you dig in.

Seated immediately, our server Christine was professional, personable and attentive. Drinks were a good size, food portions were some of the biggest I’ve seen in a restaurant in a long time. Every one of the 4 of us had something delicious and all devoured everything. Always consistently good service, food and lively atmosphere. Will return and highly recommend!

I had dinner at Limoncello's this past week in Chester Springs. I have to say for the first time I was really disappointed in my dinner. I had Chicken Limoncello which I always get when going to this restaurant. The chicken was tough and there was barely a hint of lemon in the sauce. After dinner I had a cannoli and it was horrible. It was too sugary and tasted like cookie dough. We were never offered complimentary Linoncello cordial. Our waitress was pleasant and the servers were polite. I have been to both Limoncello locations before and have never been disappointed. This was a first. I would give this restaurant one more chance.

We dined with friends from out of town. We had a very good meal, and excellent service. What brought down this rating was the restaurant itself.

It looked dirty. The first impression approaching the exterior was of disarray. Chairs out of place, fountains not working, just not very inviting. Inside the chairs were worn, the salt and pepper were greasy, and one of the cutlery services was filthy. They serve the grated cheese in a lovely little bucket, but it was greasy and full of fingerprints. It was enough to make one wonder if these things exist in plain sight, what goes on behind the scene?

We were celebrating Fathers day. It is not often you can really enjoy dining out on a busy annual celebration. The food was very good, the noise level was fine (a lot of people talking/laughing and we could still carry on a conversation)

Our waitress had a very nice manner and even though you knew she was rushed, she took the time to check on all of us to see that we were enjoying our selves, needed any more water etc.

My husband and I are frequent visitors of Limoncello in Chester Springs and we usually have such a positive experience there. This experience, unfortunately was just fair. The food was good and the outside dining was pleasant. However, our waitress was awful. She took forever to serve us, never brought bread, we had more interaction with the busboy than we did our waitress. We both come from hospitality backgrounds in our younger years so we are understanding 99% of the time. But this time it just wasn’t good. The restaurant just wasn’t busy enough to justify her poor service. My husband said something to the manager and he took care of us which we absolutely appreciated. We will continue to go to Limoncello because of the manager and hope that we don’t get that same waitress or she gets retrained.

Limoncello is one of our favorite restaurants and we love going there. The only unfortunate thing (for me) is that they are lacking in vegan options. It would be great if they added some of those to the menu. Other than that, it's a great place for a family meal.

We have been here a few times before. The food is always very good and priced fairly reasonably. This time, the kitchen staff and wait staff did not seem to coordinating. Bread was brought half-way through the appetizer course and only after we asked for it. Then they brought out 2 of the 4 entrees before we had gotten thorough only half of the appetizer. Additionally,the person bringing out the entrees was referring to them in Spanish, so we didn't know if they were ours. We sent them back and finished the appetizers. At the appropriate time, all 4 entrees came out. We ordered 3 desserts --1 came out with the coffees; the waitress had to go find out about the other 2. It wasn't an overly busy night, so not sure why they had such a hard time getting it all together. Despite the experience, we'll probably be back since the food is good.

We had heard a lot of good things about the restaurant and were eager to try it. We choose to eat there for our daughter's birthday celebration and are vegetarian Wednesdays and Fridays so we were looking forward to a good pasta dish. Although the food was generally very good, we were surprised that the service wasn't a bit better. Not only was the wait staff slow and forgetful, but the parmesan was not freshly grated (came in a bowl pre-grated - looked like the store bought kind to be honest) and the oil was not prepared for you for the bread either. No sea salt option or other spices - just the regular salt, pepper and red pepper flakes on the table. We are accustomed to restaurants being a little more fine-tuned with their service at this level. Perhaps nit-picky but we were surprised. They also did nothing (not even wish a happy birthday) to acknowledge our daughter's birthday despite indicating the occasion when we made the reservation and mentioning it at least twice during the meal with the wait staff. That being said, the food was definitely good so we may revisit but not for a special occasion/outing. We expected more but came out of it feeling like an olive garden or carrabas is about equal to this experience (and perhaps they are better in some respects). If it's convenient for you, definitely go for a decent italian meal.

Food was excellent with plenty of variety to choose from. Only one in our group didn't care for her meal, which was the braised short rib ravioli, as the sauce was too watery. I had the seafood alla vodka, and others in our party had the rigatoni alla Giuseppe and lobster ravioli, all of which were very good.
