A really great restaurant in the West Chester, PA scene. Nice bar, wonderful food & fun ambiance. A really popular place so please be patient if they can not seat you exactly at your reservation time so relax and have a drink at the bar. The italian cuisine is top notch and the free Lemoncello shots at meal end are a nice touch. Dine & enjoy!

I have been to Limoncello a handful of times for many different occasions and it has never disappointed. For this particular trip I decided I wanted to take my 7 year old daughter here to celebrate my birthday. It was her birthday present to me. A father / daughter date. It turned out to be the perfect evening. She loved the food and the staff treated her so well. She felt like one of the grown ups in the restaurant. Now please keep in mind that she behaves much better than many teenagers I have met so taking her here was no issue for me but if your kids tend to be a little more on the loud or restless side, this might not be the best place to take them.

Great food but it took over an hour for us to get seated. We had reservations for 745...and we got our entrees at 10 pm. (It may have been 10:15) The manager was extremely apologetic and gave us 2 free appetizers and huge portions of the entrees. the place was packed with high energy and sound level. The manager did his best to make up for the wait we endured.

We’ve been to Limoncello quite a few times. It has been a while since the last time we were there. I do have to say it was extremely loud. Very crowded. We waited for our table a good 15 minutes. The bar was packed so we just kind of stood there. Service was good, but we waited a very long time for our food. My husband and I didn’t seem to mind. My meal came and it was room temperature my husbands was steaming. So I sent mine back and waited another 15 minutes and when it came back out the meal was incorrect. So then I had to wait again for it to come out. After waiting so long I wasn’t even hungry anymore. The waiter was kind enough to take my meal off the bill. My husband’s meal was very good he said.

Awesome new additions to the new Fall Menu . Great to see the Limoncello Wedge Salad is back. Time and again the food is great and the servers are all professionally trained .... so this all makes for a good evening out. There will always be a short wait to get in ..... its good ... you get to watch the masterfully planned plates of authentic Italian fare go by to tables. And as always - its wonderful to see this alive and well in West Chester. The Mingrino Family has it going on .

Limoncello has the best lunch buffet in Chester County - every dish is delicious! I was recently there for a business lunch, we all had the buffet and we all went back for seconds! Tilapia, pasta, several salad choices, lots of fresh vegetables, pizza, calzones - something for everyone. Have been here many times and will certainly be back. Consistently high quality food, great service, and great location.

Have been to limoncello many times. Went here for my BDAY Friday night .it was Very ok. I like the atmosphere although it was freezing in the room we were in . They got the temp adjusted after about a 1/2 hour . Our server was excellent ! No complaints there . Our problem was with the food. Two people in our party got penne with vodka dishes. The sauce was tasteless and watery . Second time it was like this . Will never order vodka sauce here again . I ordered the veal chop parmigiana . The chop was very good but it was loaded with red sauce with very little mozzarella cheese . Would never order again . I think I will be giving limoncello a break and maybe try it again in the future . In the past I would have no problem recommending it but not so sure I would now.

Very good value and portion size was huge. We split the baked calamari salad and were very pleased. A full serving would have satisfied as a main course.

Service was a bit slow but that was because of the time of day (coincided with happy hour), but gave us time to sit and chat and enjoy a beautiful evening. We wound up taking major portions of our entrees home with us for a second dinner, so from a value perspective, fantastic.

Looking forward to going back. Staff was very friendly, nice, helpful and went out of their way to accommodate us.

The best thing about this restaurant was leaving. My party got to the restaurant 10-15min before our reservation timr as people usually do. They told us we had to wait for the table to be ready, which is fine because we were early and had time to spare. What is NOT fine and never should be acceptable was how the hostesses constantly asking for my name, seating preference, saying the table was getting ready, and then seating us 30 minutes after my reservation time. I was truly astonishes how incapable a team of three hostesses could be. Why even get a reservation if they still make you wait? Complete BS. Extremely unprofessional. I see they are busy, but lesser places treat their customers better. There was also no waiting area other than the packed bar or outside among the dining guests.

Next after being seated, I could not hear the other person in my party due to the atrocious acoustics in the restaurant. Everyone seemed to be yelling. I could not hear someone who was 2 feet in front of me. Next our waiter did not come until 15 minutes after we were seated, which is absolutely unprofessional. The waiter was good overall, but took another 15 minutes to take the payment so we could leave this abomination of a restaurant.

The obnoxious guests near us made our dining experience even more unpleasant. You could see other guests look displeased with the obnoxious guests and Limoncello did nothing about it. Limoncello does not use the proper noise dampening ceiling tiles or anything else to lessen the noise. Cramped tables make dining even more of a headache.

My final thoughts is that I will never be back to any of the Limoncello Iocations after how I was treated and served at the West Chester location. Similar things with reservation wait times happened at the Chester Springs location as well. The main thing I cannot stand is the incompetent staff at a restaurant. WILL NEVER BE BACK!

The group I was with each tried a different meal and all thought that the food was excellent. We had no wait time as we had a reservation and the food was served in a reasonable amount of time. The noise level was low so we could enjoy our conversations with each other. The only negative was that our waiter couldn't remember anything. I think the restaurant wants the waiters not to write down orders, but if they can't remember what people order, the policy should change.

We have been wanting to try Limoncello for quite a while. We went there on Sunday for an early dinner. The waiter was very nice and helped us with information on some items on the menu. The food was excellent. The best Italian food we have had in many many years. We will definitely be going back. The restaurant was clean and cozy. A great place.

We had a variety of dishes across the party and all were excellent. I particularly recommend the Goats cheese and Beet with extra shrimp.
