While I get the special v-day menu... you should still be able to order from the normal menu.

We came back to Limoncello for Valentines Day because we loved it so much last year. The food was delicious. I got the short rib on risotto and my husband got the Seafood Penne Vodka. We also got the Calamari Siciliana and Italian wedding soup as appetizers. Everything was absolutely delicious. The hostess, busboy, and server were also very friendly. We definitely recommend Limoncello.

Limoncello provides very large portions of excellent Italian food in a homey but noisy atmosphere. We’ve eaten there many times and have loved everything. A true go-to Italian spot!

We had a lovely time at Limoncello celebrating our one year wedding anniversary :) the service was amazing! The food was also amazing! Our only complaint was that it was a little cramped; they squeeze a lot of tables in. However it wasn’t overly noisy, and we could easily have a conversation. The wait staff did a great job navigating the space. Definitely recommend!!

This was quite a find for us! Amazing little Italian gem in the heart of West Chester. Full bar, but low corkage fee Sunday’s, so we took our own bottle to celebrate our 23rd anniversary

The food and service were wonderful. The only issue was people standing outside smoking the entire time we were there so the smoke permeated inside. It would be nice if there was no smoking permitted on the premises at all.

Hello - Albeit the food and service was very good at Limoncello (as it always is...), this past Saturday evening, the noise level in the restaurant was extremely loud and we could barely hear each other talk. Notsure if it was our particular location in the restaurant - we were a party of 5 and were seated in the back section in left corner (next to mosaic "limoncello' wall art) at a large round table - the acoustics were horrible. I'm not sure if anything could be done to reduce the noise level in this location of the restaurant (or if the entire restaurant had the same level of noise ?). It was just a shame that that we spent most of the time not talking with each other during my husband's birthday celebration. Our one daughter seated directly across from us could not hear what we were saying and sat silent most of the dinner. We will be back, but I'll be sure to request the front of the restaurant and not the back section or corner locations during future reservations.

We had a reservation at 7:45 and didn’t get seated until 8:30. They were out of the dinner wine we asked for and the port wine for dessert. Service was mediocre, a little on the slow side. One of the managers did come by a couple of times to check in, but considering the multiple factors, I don’t think we’ll be back anytime soon. Wish we had a better experience because overall the food was very good.

There was a very loud table near us and our server was very apologetic. When we talked to a manager, he was wonderful about it and encouraged us to give them another try.

We have never had a bad meal at this gem. We made reservations for New Years Eve several weeks ago. We had a complimentary glass of champagne, tasty appetizers. He had veal, I had ravioli...no problem leaving the mushrooms off. Marny was such a sweet girl, checked on us just at the right times, and packaged up our goody bag of leftovers. Then a shot of limoncellos at the end.
The noise level is "lively", aka loud, but that adds to the fun. It brings memories of dinners in South Philly, family sitting elbow to elbow and everyone talking at once. We have never had a bad meal here.

Went for New Year’s Eve. Reservation was at 6:30 and we were seated promptly. Everything was great. Complementary champagne, delicious dinner and great service. Our only issue was how quickly the courses were coming out. When we asked our server to slow things down it was much better. We were never rushed to leave so it wasn’t that they had our table scheduled too quickly, I think the kitchen was just trying to stay on schedule. As always food was delicious and service great!

We set up a reservation early on NYE for early NYE. Easy booking. One of our party of five is mobility impaired and the owner/host helped her up the small steps into the restaurant. We expected the place to be busy, and it was, but pleasantly so. Staff was accommodating for our younger folks (12 and 16 y.o.). We were served promptly and not rushed at all, despite the full restaurant. Overall a great experience and the Lobster Ravioli was amazing!

Loved the relaxed and comfortable feel of this restaurant. The food was great. We all ordered from the buffet lunch. There were many options to choose from to fit everyone's taste. Fish, pasta, roasted chicken, soup, breaded and sautéed vegetables, several different varieties of pizza, tossed salad, desserts and bread. And my husband loved that they had roasted long hot peppers! The buffet includes your hot or cold drink and is priced reasonably.

Absolutely fantastic. Gave my wife a night out at Limoncello as one of her Christmas gifts. It did not disappoint. We both got one of the specials, she got the grouper and I got the salmon over risotto. Neither one of us finished because the portions were so big and we brought the leftovers home. Both of us were blown away by the food and the overall experience. We have been to Limoncello numerous times and I think it gets better every time we go. Can’t wait for the next time.
