Limoncello was somewhat of a disappointment. Staff didn't recognize it as a birthday celebration as requested. Waitress not very attuned to wine and beer lists. IPA my husband ordered from their specialties they didn't have. The chicken parm was overcooked (burned looking and dry), the 2 salmon pasta dishes virtually had no sauce at all. The lasagne was good. Ordered gelato for dessert - two of us asked for 2 different flavors and they just brought us each one. Past 2 of 3 visits here were not what we had hoped so with the selection of restaurants downtown will pass on this one in the future. Selected it because of the convenient location to Center Stage.

We have been to Limoncello before. Very disappointed with the food. The new Caesar Salad is very bland, dry and lacking flavor. Nothing like the previous Caesar salad. I ordered chicken piccata and the same - very bland, needed salt, chicken was not flavored and a bit on the cool temperature. Server never came back to ask for salt. We did not have dessert. Very pricy for a weekday night.

My favorite menu items are the shrimp Prosecco, Salmon Piccata and Penne Vodka Arrabbiata (which is spicy). Nice indoor and outdoor seating.

We selected this restaurant because we could eat outside. The ambience was perfect, our server was a gem. The food was good… Nothing really stood out, but everything tasted good. Pasta was a little grainy. They have a great drink menu and the gelato is very good!

Felt it was not worth the price. Food was average at best, service was decent, and it was loud. Just feel if I'm paying for that much for pasta the servers could at least be in a uniform. And please don't ask me to set my still rolled silverware at the edge of the table to let you know I'm ready to order. It has a lot of potential just needs more structure.

Extremely disappointing. To begin with, when seeing that other tables were brought bread, we asked why we haven’t had bread sent our way, the answer was “you need to ask for it”. Really?!
Then when ordering spaghetti and meatballs, was told that they were out of spaghetti. Once again, really?! You’re an Italian restaurant, how do you run out of spaghetti during dinner service.
To top things off, when the food came to the table, it was, at best, lukewarm. Don’t waste your time and money here.

This has become one of our favorite restaurants in Greenville. The food is always delicious and the service is outstanding. It was my birthday and they were so nice giving me a birthday card and piece of cake. We will return again and again. Also loved the outdoor patio seating. I highly recommend this restaurant in downtown Greenville.

We were seated outside for a perfect and lovely dining experience! The dinner was delicious (pear and prosciutto pizza and pasta with roasted vegetables)), the server, Chris was efficient and attentive, and the ambience delightful.


We will be back!

It was good and thats the best way I can think to describe it. There’s just so many incredible restaurants in greenville with insanely good food and I feel as though this pales in comparison. Nothing was wrong with it by any means. The service was fast and nice, good tasted good but for the price not worth it. Would eat here again.

We had the dinner menu. Everyone had a different entree and they were all delicious. The sides complimented the entree as well as colorful. The water was very good and was on top of filling our glasses and making sure we were taken care of.

We would recommend trying Limoncello for your next big night out on the town.

Father’s Day dinner with the family. Great service, amazing food, loud environment but not annoying. Everyone was smiling and treating the guests very kindly. The staff was also very friendly and asked several times if we needed anything and how was our meal. Will definitely return to get the spicy sausage with pasta, loved it!

I was disappointed this time, we’ve been before and had better experiences. Our waiter was inattentive and my lasagna was cold, I returned it and the replacement dish was almost too hot to eat. We each had one drink, dinner and dessert and it took almost two hours. I enjoy a slow meal but the waiter was inattentive, never asking if we wanted more drinks and rarely checked in on us. Additionally, the men’s room was not clean there was trash all over the floor.

Menu was limited but the food quality was good. Service was below average compared to past experiences. Our Anniversary reservation table was next to the kitchen service door. COVID has had an impact and not sure I will return any time soon.
