The restaurant was very busy. I understand that I had mentioned it was a date and they gave us plenty of time to talk. 80 minutes from ordering to get a cold plate. Never had this experience here.

The atmosphere was quite comfortable and warm. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive, and made us feel very welcome. I decided to try the buffet which is normally something I avoid. I was genuinely pleased with the flavor and texture of the buffalo chicken pizza, the calzone, the potatoes, and the baked pork chops. I didn't care for the ceasar salad (but I believe that was because of the dressing) and the only reason I did not enjoy the other vegetables I chose because I prefer them hot and they were cold. Overall, it was a most enjoyable experience for us as a group.

A lot of people really rave about this place and it can be hard to get a reservation. We went when it first opened and were unimpressed. Went again recently to see if anything changed. Not really. The risotto I had the first time was over-cooked (very soft, definitely not al dente). This last time I had lobster ravioli topped with a “lobster” tail), husband had chicken. Ravioli was perfectly fine but not special, the lobster tail was one of tbose really small ones that come from Australia or some place which is fine but it was incredibly tough (again over cooked). Husband said pretty much the same about his chicken. If you look at this as a nice local place where the food is “good enough “ for a casual enjoyable lunch or dinner you won’t be disappointed.

With traffic we were several minutes late for our Anniversary dinner and they held our table.
Their drink variety was good, I had Blueberry Mule, it was delicious! The bread was truly amazing.
I ordered the Chicken Messina and it wasn't great, the outside was really over cooked.

My wife and I were in town for the BMW Championship. Limoncello was recommended on Trip Advisor. The food was good and reasonably priced. Our server was Dave and he was very pleasant and appropriately attentive. Bread was served (not warm) with a tasty EVOO dipping sauce. Enjoyed. We shared the meatball app and it was good. Wife had the veal Milanese. The veal was good but the sauce could have been better. I had Veal Parm and it was good. We were happy with our meals. We ate the left-overs the next day. The place was noisy, which is OK. It seemed like a lot of birthdays being celebrated. Its a good place for that. I enjoyed the experience and would return if I ever had the chance. It was well worth the visit.

We went to Limoncello last Friday night. The food was good and the service was just OK--we had to wait about 45 minutes to get our entrees. But the real problem was the noise. Tables are packed into the restaurant and the noise level is unbearable. We were a table of four and had to shout to be heard by one another. We couldn't wait to get out of there.
We have eaten at Limoncello a few times but it has never been this noisy. I would only go back on a week night or at lunchtime.

Have dined here many times, and food is always good. This visit there were 5 of us, and one got the wrong meal, then it took FOREVER for her to get the correct meal. The rest of us were done our meals by the time she got hers. Would have liked a small gesture for the inconvenience.

Every course of our dinner was great from the appetizers to dessert. There was a minor mistake with my wife’s main course, but they proactively fixed it with great customer care and as a result it had no negative impact on our dinner. In fact, the response from Alanna our server and the manager was so well done, it only enhanced our experience. Great dinner for our wedding anniversary and we will definitely go back.

At first, I was a little irritated with the hostess for seating people at the high top in the window farthest from the hostess stand. She said she expected them to be up by the time we arrived. Even Frank okayed the seating arrangements. She said we could move when they left but that was after we had pretty much finished our meal. Also, our server, Alyssa, wasn’t very attentive. The food was good, like always, but the service could have been better.

The quality has certainly gone down at Limoncello! The risotto of the day - fish, brussel sprouts, green beans and cherry tomatoes was marginal. The service was slow and the noise level through the roof - even in the very front of the restaurant! So sad to see this restaurant go down hill!
