I was excited to try based on the reviews and all of the gluten free options. However I was disappointed with the gluten free pasta Alfredo. The chicken was good, but the pasta was sticky & the sauce was tasteless. I asked if adding mushrooms to the dish would be an option, but they do not have mushrooms. I thought this odd for an Italian restaurant who serves pasta & pizza. They did bring a dish of broccolini to the table since they did not have mushrooms and this was the best part of the meal. They have a bar inside, but they could not make a mojito. However,the outside seating area was lovely.

The food was delicious! I had the fettuccine Alfredo with salmon. The house salad and tiramisu was outstanding. The noise level inside was louder than I like. I think sitting outside would be ideal.

Just had dinner with friends, asked ahead of time about restaurant and was warned about overall experience and that it was mediocre.

Given the reputation that Larkin’s has I was surprised at the quality of service and although we tipped nicely as usual the attention was lacking.

Happy hour was not as advertised in that you had to be actually sitting at bar to get bar menu before dinner??

Waiter wasn’t concentrating on us because I think he was handling too many tables.

The food was fine but not exciting as we thought it might be, second time our guests have been although it’s been sometime since they had been said it was still not impressive for them.

The restaurant seemed understaffed and management seemed not to be concerned?!?!

Nice location, nice building and venue but overall the experience not great which is too bad.

With all the great restaurants in town to choose from it’s a shame.

We were Completely neglected by our server from the beginning, we waited for a whole 50 minutes, my husband never received his drink, we didn’t get our drinks refill at all, no salads no soup just completely ignored the whole time! They definitely ruined my Mother’s Day lunch!!! Thank you very much!!! Oh and they were not even busy at all, I will not recommend this place to anyone!

This was our 3rd or 4th time at Limoncello and most likely our last. The ambiance is great but the food not exceptional for the price and this time the service was far below what we've come to expect from a Larkin's establishment.

I have been there twice. Both times the noise level was very high, hard to have a conversation. Last visit was an early dinner, 6:30 PM, and they were already out of the first three menu choices we made...The food we did have was very good, but this is not the place for a quiet, relaxing meal. Would have asked for an outside table to avoid the din indoors, but rain was imminent.

Several items on menu were not available but we were not told until we ordered one of them. Mussels were not good-
Waitress was very charming. She just didn’t have much to work with. Acoustics were horrible. Couldn’t hear the server and she couldn’t hear us.
Average at best.

Had the Bolognese and it was salty and tasted like hamburger helper. The portions were tiny. Selection was small and limited. The drink I order was good as was the Gelato for desert. But that was about it for the cuisine. The wait person was ok, but the room was loud. The table rocked back and forth. Honestly I have been to better Olive Gardens than this restaurant. There are much better Italian restaurant in Greenville. Within walking distance.

We thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful evening at Limoncello. On a beautiful night we sat outside so I cannot comment on the interior dining room. The outside however was spacious and while we sat on a table near the road the noise wasn't distracting. The primary reason we went to Limoncello was because of their attention to gluten free offerings as each of the Larkin restaurants so carefully prepare. With two in our group intolerant to gluten this was very important. The dishes we had were quite varied from pastas to pizza and everyone enjoyed immensely. This happened to be the first night of a new menu so while we prepped on line in advance, the menu was not noticeably different with many of the same dishes available or a better alternative. We each would highly recommend Limoncello and plan to return.

The food was delicious. But the noise was way too loud! We could barely hear each other. We had to repeat everything we said to be heard. My husband and I were treating some college graduates to dinner before they went home to their families. We were looking forward to a nice quiet dinner. We had always loved going to Limoncello for the food, service, and ambience in the past. But not now. We won’t go back.

We both had salads and ordered a pizza to share. No one offered us a bread basket, but every table around us had one. Salads and pizza were good but not memorable. Problems developed when we asked for coffee. Our first cups were cold, so my husband sent them back. Second cups were passable but the server never asked. When we finished those, we asked for more and got cold coffee yet again. A big yuck. Don’t know why it wasn’t possible to get HOT coffee.

Food was okay. ‘Head server or manager’ came over to ask how our dinner was, was on girls trip so he asked us what we were celebrating and we therefore asked him a few questions and you could tell he exaggerates his answers and was just obnoxious.

EXCELLENT service from our waitress! Clams and mussels were delicious as well as the bread they brought to the table. We were initially turned away, but after making a quick reservation we were able to be seated. A bit turned off by being turned away due to “not wanting to overload the servers”, but it ended well. The tiramisu was DIVINE! I’d go back, but only with a reservation to avoid the awkwardness of being turned away (even though the place wasn’t crowded at all).

We visited Limoncello for the first time with a large group of friends and were very pleased with our experience. We specifically chose Limoncello because of their expansive selection of gluten-free menu options since we had a friend with severe celiac disease. The food was delicious, and our friend was thrilled with both the selection and quality of the gluten-free options. Our servers were very accommodating and the ambiance was great. Another fabulous restaurant in the Larkin's family of businesses. We will definitely be back!

I saw a lot of negative reviews about the service at Limoncello so I was hesitant to make a reservation for a night we were going to the Peace Center, but the Saturday night we were there the service was excellent and very attentive, the food was also excellent. We plan to go back.

Dining out with friends before the theater on a Saturday night. We were seated immediately and offered something to drink from the bar. We got our cocktails then ordered an appetizer. Spent time eating and drinking and talking with friends. We had initially told our server that we needed to be out by 7:30 to make our seats at the theater. She then managed our entree, desert and brought the check in an appropriate amount of time to pay, and get out to the valet, without rushing. The food was very good but not special. Both couples had pizzas and salads which were also very good.
Overall we had a good experience, and would go back to try some of their entrees.

Had an absolutely wonderful meal Saturday evening before the Peace Center performance. The Limoncello Ultimate pizza with lobster, truffle oil and mushrooms was amazing, as was the house recipe Sausage Lasagna. The Shrimp & Prosecco Capellini was light, flavorful, & perfectly cooked. Everything was so flavorful & filling we almost passed on dessert... so glad we didn’t. The Lemon Almond Torts was divine. But the highlight of the night was their Tiramisu... all agreed the best we have ever had! The only complaint we have is their valet parking closes at 10:00 instead of staying open until after the Peace Center performances end. That needs to change. Despite that inconvenience, we will be back.

Our group of 8 had dinner at Limoncello prior to attending a play at the Peace Center. Our server was aware that we had tickets and got us all wrapped up in time to make the play. Everyone enjoyed their food from the baked lasagna to the chicken pizza. Desserts were big enough for two to share and were all good! Our server, Julieanne, was obviously experienced and very accommodating.
