This restaurant exceeded our expectations in every way. Our family was celebrating our patriarchs birthday. The server, Olivia, was prompt and friendly, and waited on us quickly. The grilled romaine Caesar salad was divine , and made even a picky 11 year old happy. Every dish was fresh and well balanced in flavor. The Limoncello is house made and so delicious. The dessert selection was varied and fantastic- the table of six managed to down 3 desserts in 2:32, even after a really filling meal.
Thank you for the memories, Limoncello! We will be back!

The food is fantastic which is the most important part but the service is just okay. I had to get my own bread plate, pour the water for my entire family and we had dirty glassware.

Clean up service and this is 5 star restaurant.

The host made us sit in a table by the entry door though we had a reservation. The chairs were dirty. I ordered osso bucco at 7pm but that was not available. I ordered bisteca steak medium-well instead and it came burnt out. My wife ordered the usual salmon picata but the portion was significantly smaller than our previous visits. Overall, a terrible experience on a Saturday night! Hope they could fix these issues.

We go out rarely so we look for unique and quality food along with upscale service. The food here was advertised very specifically and sounded very interesting. I ordered a dish which the waitress described as having grilled vegetables in a tomato base sauce. It ended up having a can of spinach and a can of mushrooms dumped on the noodles with some tomato sauce. No grilled vegetables! My wife and my cousin had the same poor quality also. The dishes needed seasoning. The bill was $88. When I talked to the general manager, he said that I should have brought it up earlier. He only would discount the bill $10 but I had to ask if he would.
Very poor quality of food. Very poor management. I will not go back and I encourage you to save your money. You could do much better at Olive Garden 3 times for the money I spent!

The noise level was high because we were there at peak hour - 7 pm on a Saturday night. By the time we left around 830, the bulk of the crowd, as well as the noise, had diminished substantially. None of this took away from the food and the atmosphere. As with every meal we've had there, this was very good. We'll be back.

Although my husband enjoyed the Chicken Marsala, I didn’t exactly enjoy my choice of spaghetti and meatballs. The sauce was very bitter, but the meatballs we’re hearty and made up for the bitterness in the sauce. The atmosphere was ideal for the occasion, we were celebrating my husband’s birthday. Overall, I would recommend Limoncello.

The food was excellent, with the exception of the tomato sauce. The tomato sauce was bland and for such fine dinning, I would have expected the sauce to be more interesting. The rest of our meal was outstanding and looking forward to going back. As for the cost, we felt it was very very good value for the money. The service was by far better than most. A very nice evening for us both.

What a wonderful restaurant. Beautiful setting, delicious food and wonderful service. We sat in a corner table overlooking the street/park. It was such a romantic evening for my husband and I. I would highly recommend Limoncello as a fine Italian establishment. All the details from tablecloths, soft music and decor added to this most special evening. Thank you so much. We will be back again!!

My rating for this restaurant is all about value. For the price I expected more in just about every aspect, with the exception being service. Our waiter, Isaiah, was awesome.

The food was passable fair, but nothing to get excited about. I had the “Pulled Duck Confit” which I can only suspect was not really confit at all. In the very least it tasted as if it was slow roasted and then pulled to mimic barbecue. Honestly, this was an error on my part, the dish did not make a ton of sense as I read it, but curiosity got the better of me. The real star of the night was the focaccia served with the meal, but the bread should never be the star when a meal for two is going to be upwards of $100. Dessert was delicious. The tirimisu and cannoli were unctuous and inviting. Again, in a lower price bracket, Limoncello would have warranted more stars.

We made reservations for Friday after Valentines Day, looking to try Limoncello for the first time. Overall, the place has a nice atmosphere but got loud at times as we were sitting in the front room near the bar. If you’re going to visit here, request one of the side or back rooms for a more intimate feel. The frustrating part of our experience came when it was time to order our entrees. The server took our order only to return two separate times stating they were out of the entrees we ordered (duck, veal, and lobster dishes). Although this was the day after Valentine’s, it was still a Friday night so the increase in customer traffic, this issue should not have happened. Since our reservation was at 7pm, it was getting late in the evening at this point so we decided to stick it out instead of going somewhere else. Once we received our entrees, the food was great (although it’s not what we originally wanted). We may return to give them another shot but it certainly won’t be around any busy time to avoid this issue again.

The ambiance was nice. Was able to sit in back room which kept the noise level down. The bread type was not what we were expecting, very spongy and damp. My sweetheart had ordered flowers for me for the table and he had to ask them to bring to the table. Should have already been there before being seated. The cocktails were good and on point. The fettuccine Alfredo was quite dry. No sauce. The roasted olives were nice. The lobster pizza was ok. Some changes need to happen before we think about coming back here.
