Talbles were definitely not 6 feet apart but when we arrived close to 8 pm all tables were not filled. Food and service were both very good. We will return.

This was our first visit to Lemoncello. The decor is worn and tired, but the food was very good. Three in our party ordered fish and all said it was expertly prepared. I had the eggplant rollatini and it was very good.

Very nice menu with good choices. Great prices. We had calamari with ginger appetizer - it was delicious and all our meals were great and they included a very nice house salad. Many choices for dessert. The lemon cake was delicious. Nice place to go and have a good meal. Service was very good too.

As always, food here was great. We had the ginger calamari, the pork osso bucco, pork chop special and chicken milanese. Service was fantastic, we were treated like family, as we are every time we dine here. Just a special place.

Always good. The portions are always large and we end up taking some home. That’s good because we can enjoy it a second time.

The food was very good and the service very efficient. My only complaint is that the room is packed far too tightly. You actually could not move your chair back 2 inches without rubbing elbows with other guests. More importantly you had to snake your way between chairs to get either to the bathroom or to eventually leave. Not at all comfortable and that was unfortunate.

On a Friday or Saturday night, seems like when you have a reservation you still have to wait 30 mins to sit down. This was a little frustrating, however, once we sat (table by the window was phenomenal) the food was exquisite! Very delicious and the staff was very nice. We will be back, and the homemade limoncello was delicious.

The restaurant was full but we were seated with our reservation with only a 5 min wait. The food was delicious and the timing between courses was perfect. This is a great restaurant with a wide variety of specials and all reasonably priced. Another bonus is it's a BYOB restaurant too! Desserts were delicious!

We really enjoy this family run restaurant. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. It is a BYOB place which is a real savings when you want to enjoy a bottle of wine with friends. The staff is very friendly. Recently, we had a reservation but had to wait a few minutes. While we were waiting, the owner came over with a tray and offered us some garlic bread while they prepared our table. It may seem like a very small touch but it was their way of saying we know you are waiting and yet we care about our customers. I have not had that experience at many other restaurants. I also highly recommend the desserts which are really very good. W e have been to Limoncello many times and have always had a good meal.

First time at this restaurant. Was not happy that I did not receive points for dinning there. Food and service was very good but the main course came out before we finished our appetizers. Other than that it was a good experience.

Limoncello is an absolute gem of a restaurant! We came from Westchester county NY for the second time to eat here. From the minute you arrive you are treated so special. The host is gracious and friendly. The service gets better from there from the opening of your own wine (it’s BYOB) and the explanation of the specials. The prices are so reasonable and the quality is superb. I had the grouper with cranberry glaze and poached pear over perfectly cooked escarole. The presentation was beautiful including the elegant dishes. My husband had the pasta Arrabiatte and he said he felt like we were back in Italy. I could go on and on but I’ll end by saying Limoncello is a top restaurant and I can highly recommend it to everyone. I just wish it were closer but I won’t let it stop us...well worth the trip!!

Service was very good. Food was very good as well, and there were many specials to choose from. My daughter cannot have gluten, and Jimmy was very knowledgeable about the menu items that she could have as well as being most accommodating when making her dinner and dessert. BYOB. We will be back.

We ate at the restaurant last week also on Christmas eve it was so good we came back for New Year's Eve. The standout apps were the mussels and fried calamari. Main dishes were the salmon and veal dish with mozzarella and prosciutto.
