    Another second rate experience with this restaurant. We were there to use a gift card given to us as compensation for the poor service experience in our last visit. Unfortunately this time was worse. It took on hour before we received our food and that was only because because of complaining to the server and then involving the manager ( who hardly presented himself as being the manager- dressed in a pretty scruffy tee shirt). The table was not bussed through the whole process- used glasses and bread basket and plates stayed with us without. Food was okay when it came. Apart from a perfunctory apology from the manager, we were offered no other recompense. We will not be back.

    This has been our favorite Greenville restaurant. The negative: my protein was very dry ( chicken ). The manager was working the floor, speaking to patrons. Yet he never approached us. We walked right by him when leaving and he seemed he was deeply involved in conversation with a server. Also, my cake was very dry. The bar staff seemed like they were more interested in congregating with each other than spreading out. It was an odd thing to see. Never have we experienced anything less than 5 stars here in 5 years or so we’ve dined here. The positive: OUR SERVER. I wish I had his name. We were there 9/20@5:30. Our server we absolutely wonderful. 5 stars for him alone. Our appetizer was excellent too. The burrata.

    Fiancé and I were celebrating 50 days till our wedding. We shared the Arancini, I got the Pear Pizza and he got the Spaghetti and Meatballs, then we shared the Zeppoli. The Arancini lacked flavor and was mostly just rice (it was much better my first time there), the pizza was good but was told the spaghetti was rather bland too, the zeppoli had good flavor but were rather dense. Fiancé enjoyed his glass of Sauvignon Blanc and I liked the Pomegranate Elixir.

    The food was delicious!! The outdoor atmosphere was wonderful. We ate there on Sunday(9/18) and walked up to the Centerstage Theater and watched a play. The location of the restaurant really fit into our planned schedule. Also, the server and the other staff were attentive and courteous. I will be eating at Limoncello again!!!!!!!!!

    Started off well. We were seated inside but asked to be moved outside and that was not an issue. Quickly received our drinks and apps. Placed our order and that's where the good time ended. 45 minutes and no food, our waitress wasn't seen again until we told someone else (assuming a manager) we wanted the check. Then magically 3 minutes later the food was brought to us by the manager. It was obvious that it wasn't fresh as they claimed "just came up from the kitchen". We declined the food, paid for our drinks & apps and left. Sad because the place came highly recommended.

    Over all a good experience. The food was very good (3 1/2-4) though this only represents 2 items off the menu. We sat outside which was very nice, but wished we'd been further away from the outdoor speakers playing uninspiring music while we dined. The music detracted somewhat from the sense of al fresco dining outside. This should not be an issue unless you are fairly close to the front door where the speakers are. Service (knowledgeable, timeliness, attention to detail) was great. Thanks, Mary. We will definitely go back and give it another go.

    Ate here a year ago and loved it. Ate here last night and it was terrible. Service was great, but food was almost inedible. Shrimp and pasta undercooked. One of our kids commented that the school cafeteria Alfredo was better than the Alfredo he ordered. Very disappointing to spend $200 and hate your food.

    Have been going to Limoncello for 3 years now, and have also watched it decline at the same time. The place was empty, which is fine for a weeknight, and we were sat at a table for two which immediately rocked (off balance) and was sticky. We moved immediately and watched another couple be seated there (why so close to us when the place was empty) and they moved as well. The food was overcooked and undercooked, and the server looked and acted like she did not want to be there. We had to wait for the hostess to stop chatting with a server at the podium before being seated, and the overall feeling of the place was just boring and uncaring. I hope they are able to turn this place around as it is one of the nicest spots for a restaurant in Greenville. Watching it decline over the years has been saddening, and we won't be going back until we read the reviews getting better.

    The service was excellent. The food was only average at best. The salmon was small in portion and it was over cooked. The Triamasu was excellent. The sangria came out a bit tart but the bartender fixed the drink. Our waitress was top notch.

    Food was good but the bruschetta was *super* salty. Waitress was inattentive. Had to ask for water multiple times, had to ask them to take appetizer plates after mains had been delivered, had to ask for our credit card back (waitress returned credit card slip but not card). Great location/atmosphere and the mains were good.

    We celebrated my birthday. We sat in the back dining room. It was pretty but the noise level was horrible. Our server was nice but that's it. We found out when we were done eating we were to get bread (from another server). Food was good, I had the lobster, shrimp ricotta canolli. It was very good, but never tasted the shrimp or lobster. I did find a speck of lobster 3/4 of the way thru. For that reason $28 is not worth the price. I had to ask for my birthday dessert, (they new it was my birthday.) My husband had the bolognese and said it was good. I would go back, but only if we sit outside and hopefully they train their servers better.

    Very noisy, waiter inattentive. Salmon was excellent. For Chicken alfredo though, you better go to olive garden - very little chicken, not blackened (even after second request) and it was not really warm. For this price expectation is far higher

    Horrible service, food was mediocre. This was my second visit in a month and both visits were bad… I will not return - there are plenty of other options in GVL that have better customer service and food. Expected more of a Larkin’s establishment.
