Enjoyed dinner with my friend. We both got the chicken parmigiana. Spaghetti wasn’t over cooked, sauce had a nice kick to it, and the portion was huge. Very good waitress too.

Loved the art in the dining area. Food very tasty; meal wasn’t rushed. Timed just right. Music was a little loud; would have preferred lower volume.

We went with a reservation for 8pm. Arrived on time and still had to wait 20 minutes for a table. This was to celebrate my graduation and we were famished. No room at the bar to even get a class of water. The guy at the check in desk never even cracked a smile or offered his apologies. Luckily our server was fast to bring drinks and app once we were seated.

Appetizers and drinks would be the reason to go to Limoncello. The main courses we’ve had there the last two visits were less than impressive.
We reserved through Open table and had to wait over 40 minutes even though we were told “ten minutes” when we checked in. Once seated, the attention given us by our server, though pleasant, was spotty. We were forgotten for long periods of time.
Our appetizer was excellent.
We both ordered one of the evenings fish specials (Bronzini) and aside from both dishes being cooked using too much butter, the flavor was good, just not as exceptional as would be expected for a featured dish. I ordered the mash potatoes with my meal which was very good. My wife ordered The broccoli rabe with her dinner and it was very bitter.
In summary, for the ambiance and cost of the meal, we expected so much more and in a word, Limoncello was just disappointing.

Ed our server was great our only problem is your definition of what flat bread is, it was more of a pizza than flatbread. Flatbreads are very very thin and rectangular in nature we were really disappointed you need to do some research about flatbreads and make the adjustment.

I have dined here many times and always had a good overall experience. This time was very disappointing due to our service. Our server was very impatient and made no attempt to be friendly or interactive at all. My impression was, he is really arrogant or just doesn’t care. Either way , my Birthday dinner was not very enjoyable at all.

Service was diner-like. The bruschetta was basically thrown on the table, bread was stale and not crusty or warm. Waiter was nice but came over to the table and seemed surprised we wanted cocktails. Caesar salad arrived on warm plates and lettuce was warm. Main courses of swordfish and bass were both lovely. People just basically dropped the plates on the table and ran off. It was not even that busy either! Both my husband and I were surprised that no one seemed to really care about the service. We go to your restaurant on special occasions but it’s too pricey for us for regular going out so we honestly do expect a bit more than we received at this visit. Service and salads so disappointing - so it’s good the main course was good.

Delicious food and lots of it! Meals were slow coming out but if you’re a true Italian, it’s natural to eat over a longer period of time! It’s more expensive than your chain Italian place but WAY BETTER. I’ll definitely come back but it’s gonna have to be a “special occasion” restaurant.

Service by Eric was excellent. William Hill Chardonnay is very good. I had the swordfish special which was delicious and the bread and calamari fritti were as good as ever. I would prefer the entrees to come with more vegetables and the option of no potatoes. While delicious, I like to eat vegetables with my fish.

Well everything was lovely except the fact that they sat our reservation twice! My husband and I arrived, told them the name of the reservation and they sat us. My parents arrived, told them the name of the reservation and sat them in a different room. Don’t they “check off” reservations as people are seated? As I worried why my parents were late and phoned them, that’s when I found out they were on the other side of the restaurant.

It was a small inconvenience but avoidable and I hope no other reservation had to wait for a table in the interim.

They did comp a round of drinks for the mix up and checked in frequently and the service/food from that point was on point.
