We went for their $2 Prosecco on Tuesdays, well worth it! We sat outside, the string lights & fountain created the best vibe for outdoor dining! The food was delicious, and our server was very friendly & helpful!

My first time here with a friend and we really enjoyed ourselves. The food, the service and the atmosphere were all great. We really enjoyed having Matt as our server. He did a great job and was very friendly and helpful.

My only complaint was our hostess. She was not friendly or welcoming. Didn't say anything till she slapped down the menu card on the table and grumbled something then hurried away. Not a good first impression:(

My salad didn't have the croutons and the salmon was too raw. It was taken back for more cooking, but it would have been better to have asked how well I wanted it cooked in the first place.

We had a gift certificate to eat there, but I wouldn't go back because it's too pricey for a quality of food that didn't reflect it.

We really enjoyed the chicken parm, spaghetti and meatballs and of course the tiramisu dessert. While the service was nothing special, it was prompt and our order did come out timely and accurate. The outdoor dining was perfect and the inside bar/restaurant looked nice as well. I would certainly reccomend Limoncello!

We went in thinking that Limoncello would be a bit more upscale than it was. Most customers had on gym shorts and t-shirts and most people were seated outside. Because of this, inside customers got the short end of the stick on service. They should have assigned a couple servers to handle outside and one to handle inside so that everyone got good service but that's not how they do it. Servers were running inside and outside and there were big gaps of time between our server visiting our table. The food was good when we got it. If you're someone who has a couple hours to kill for dinner, this is a good place to do it but we won't eat here again unless we pick up curbside.

Food and service were great! Host staff greeted us promptly and table was ready within a few minutes of entering. The Peach Ricotta toast was AMAZING!!! One of the signature drinks- Mello Limoncello Mule was tasty. Our server ( sorry I cannot remember her name) was friendly, informative and attentive. Tiramisu was best I have had in Greenville.

We have been to Limoncello's a few times and have had good experiences. My wife ordered spaghetti and meatballs for lunch. The price was 20 DOLLARS. We were expecting something really special. What was served was a lunh size portion with a dinner cost. Nothing special. It will be awhile before we return

Not our first time here, nor will it be our last. The back room gets noisy when there are not a lot of people sitting in the room (ironically). The noise comes from the music and kitchen doors and when there is little or no conversation noise, it's loud. Any table in the front area is fine--the noise level seems to be more tolerable. The food, service and quality are all awesome. Our favorites continue to be the Chicken Parm, Lasagna and all of the gelatos!

Service at the bar was phenomenal! However once we got to our table, it took 25 minutes to order drinks, then an additional 20 minutes for the waiter to come back by and get our dinner order. We were a party of 2 sitting right by the door, so we were constantly being passed (not like we were forgotten).
The food was delicious: we got the peach Prosciutto app, chicken Marsala, salmon piccata, and two desserts! Light Italian food with lots of flavor!

I started with a drink at the bar while waiting for my friends. Adam, the bartender was very kind and attentive. Top-notch care given from behind the bar making a delicious Limoncello cocktail, which is always my favorite. Outdoor dining was lovely and our food was delicious. The garlic knots and accompanying sauces were amazing. Always a good time at Limoncellos.

the food was very bland. we got the spaghetti and meatball and the meatball had a soapy taste. the chicken Alfredo was very bland as well, the chicken had an odd texture to it. The ricotta and pear appetizer had so much garlic on it that it made it very spicy. also none of the dishes are served with garlic bread. not a huge deal but would be nice. although we had plenty of garlic from the appetizer so probably best for this meal

Delicious, as always! The chicken parm, posecco shrimp capellini, and chicken marsala were all a hit. Be sure to save room for dessert.
Oh - and $2 prosecco? Yes, please! :)

An absolutely lovely place! The service was exceptional. Amazing, authentic Italian with a great wine list and bar as well! The charcuterie plate was just ridiculously delicious as was the traditional spaghetti and meatballs. Would definitely go there again!!!
Limoncello did a great job with social distancing, by not making it feel as isolated as other spots. All employees wore masks and you got all the “contact” you could want or need without any that you don’t.

My wife and I were looking for somewhere new to go on a long overdue date night. Limoncello’s has a very charming patio/garden area which looked perfect for us.
The esthetics did not disappoint and were definitely as advertised! Our server was pleasant and attentive as well. The wine list had a nice selection of Italian wines and was surprisingly, fair priced. The food was solid. Nothing that was absolutely outstanding as far as taste goes, but it was well prepared and good enough. That being said, the food didn’t quite live up to the ambiance.
