Table service by Kennedy was excellent -- helpful, attentive yet not overly intrusive. Beautiful lawn and fountain ambiance for lunch outside with umbrellas that actually shade the participants -- excellent.

Bread for sandwiches and pizza's excellent.

The worst meal I’ve had in Greenville in the last ten years. The concept this is a Larkins restaurant is laughable. Salmon was raw, cold and had to be sent back. They still put it on the bill! Pizza was a joke. Alfredo was a congealed mess. Pasta and meatballs was overcooked and had been prepared in a warmer. Do you yourself a favor and enjoy Marie Callender's at home instead. This place is very overpriced, and you would be better off eating at Olive Garden. Service was slow, but fine. The waiter was very nice, but we were not his priority.

We went to Paris and Rome for our 20th anniversary. We’ve been looking for restaurants that serve limoncello ever since! My hubby found this place and we decided to go for our 24th anniversary date night. The Limoncello ‘75 was wonderful!! The food was great! We love Greenville, and now we have found a great place to come back to for date night! ❤️♥️

Was unexpectedly so busy I don't think they had enough waitstaff. Hence service was slow, though I know our waiter was buzzing about productively. It was around 8:30 pm when we went in and they were running out of everything. My order was totally wrong, but I ate it because it was tasty. I hated the table we sat at because it was in the middle of the back room under a glaring light and it wobbled. Fortunately we were able to move to a corner table in more pleasant light. It was pretty noisy. I know why people like to eat outside. If I go back, I will go earlier, try to get a table outside, and I hope it's not so busy. I still had a pleasant time and the food was good. I was surprised that the prices were reasonable, but the entree comes with no sides at all, unless you pay for them. It's a La carte.

This is my 3rd time and the place is less impressive every time. Server was new and very nice, but slow, I also try to give a little grace since I know all restaurants are struggling. The food was just ok, not horrible but nothing memorable either. It all just eh, not bad but not good.

Service was terrible, waiter was inattentive and wait between courses was about 20 min each. Food was okay. We have the zucchini fries and they were watery and flavorless, would not recommend getting those.

I love this place and have never had a bad experience. My visit last night involved me calling saying I was going to be 20 mins late and then ended up being 30 mins late. Luckily, they were able to accommodate us and were extremely nice about it too, both on the phone and once we showed up. I let them know that we were on a time crunch in order to get to a show on time. Courtney was so pleasant about it and pointed out the only items on the menu that might not work in the condensed timeframe and then was so attentive (without making us feel rushed) that we were ready and out the door on time to the minute! The salmon piccata was rich (and a large portion) and oh-so-good. Thank you for the friendly and helpful service!

I ordered the eggplant parm. The eggplant was not ripe. It was crunchy and bitter. Just horrible!!! I was so looking forward to it, being that it was not breaded. I also ordered the almond lemon cake. The cake was very dry and crumbly. Also very overpriced for the quality and portion. The place was very cute to maybe have a drink and sit and chit chat outside. I was NOT impressed with the quality of their food.

The manager stepped in and brought us bread, when he saw our server failed to do so. As well as he saw the original portion was too small by their standards and brought us another one very quickly. We know it’s tough finding any help, so I say, “very well done to the manager!”

Limoncello patio was packed on a nice sunny evening. The indoor portion was virtually empty (where we sat). The wait staff was very casual in attending to our needs - asking us for orders before we even saw the menu. We were constantly bothered by flies throughout our dinner (we sat near a closed window). The bruschetta was excellent, highly recommended. The main course was okay (Chicken Parm) and it was way too much food for any normal person - i asked for a take home box. We had the chocolate cake for dessert. The cake was dray and the raspberry sauce was runny - this dessert was not worth it. I might try again later as it is a beautiful location, maybe it was just a bad day.

Had reservations and it took them forever to clean off our table. They wanted to give a small table I. The back and add a chair. Waiter spilled sauce in my lap from my plate. Appetizers were cold and waitress wasn’t attentive.

We had dinner at Limoncello on a Saturday evening. The food was very good, the service was good, but it was extremely noisy which made it difficult to communicate with my dinner partner, or even enjoy the experience. I would not give it a strong recommendation because of the noise factor.

Noisy rude people beside us letting their kids run snd scream snd bounce a ball all over. Once they left, it was nice. Food used to be wonder, but it has slipped. I love the space, location, staff, Chairs are terrible. Very uncomfortable for a 2 hour Italian meal.
Creative beverages and wonderful wine list.
I’ll go there again but it needs a little boost to compete.

Although our reservation was for a high-top table, we were allowed to sit outside which was very pleasant and added to the whole experience. The owner came by our table and asked how everything was a couple times during our visit and even refilled my water glass for me. However, the food took an hour to come out after we had ordered and was not very good. I had a chicken caesar salad and the chicken was fatty and the salad basically had no dressing on it. It seemed like a very nice restaurant and was excited to tell my coworkers about it, but was very disappointed by the food.

I took my granddaughter for her 15th birthday yesterday at 4pm, we were 3.
We waited close to 1/2 hour to get the food. My granddaughter ordered a Ceasars salad she ask without anchovies ! It came with anchovies, so she couldn't eat it. The mussels were not good. The server brought ice cream that we ordered, he put it in the middle of the dirty plates ( mussels, salmon...) Not appetizing!! He never clear the table or ask if everything was ok, never refilled the drinks !! Then he charge me the the salad, I ask him to take it off since she couldn't eat it, he said he could only take half ! He should have consulted the manager !
The food was not good, the service was awful, and the price with very high. I rarely complain, but I am upset because it really messed up my granddaughter 's birthday 😡

The food is great. Service wasn't bad just not what I was hoping for. Didn't feel like we were attended to well as our drinks would sit empty too long and the server didn't know the menu very well when we asked questions.
