First time we sat outside since before COVID and it was fabulous. Our server, Kennedy, was excellent... She was the best server (anywhere) in a long, long time. The food was soooo yummy and I am so pleased that they changed the menu to include healthy choices. Looking forward to our next visit.

Waitress was very slow. Didn’t give any recommendations. Had to order drinks from food runner. Ordered 2 drinks from the bar . When the arrived it was watered down. The entree came out with low temperature as if it was sitting in the window.

As a member of Larkin’s restaurants, we expected a better quality of food. My husband got the Tuscan chicken pasta, and it was very disappointing. The marinara sauce tasted that it had come out of a can. The pizza I ordered was good but overpriced. The restaurant is beautiful and in a great location.

We went there for the first time after reading an article about them in the local newspaper a while back. It definitely was not the Larkin quality we expected. The Calamary appetizer was great but you specifically have to ask for bread. My Penne Vodka Arrabiata was just ok but overpriced. At $24.00 for a basic pasta dish it should be perfect. The tomato sauce was broken and tasted like out of a can from the supermarket. My wife's Shrimp Prosecco Capellini was absolutely tasteless and she ended up leaving half of it. Pasta overcooked and no seasoning whatsoever. Service was very friendly but extremely slow. We ended up being there for 2 hrs. until we finally got the check. We never were told that there were specials until we saw them on the neighbor's table. After the place filled up the noise level inside became extremely high to the point where you had to scream at each other. However, the outdoor seating arrangement is great.

We had a wonderful time and Limoncello’s outside seating is probably the best in Greenville. The only thing I would like for them to do is add more speakers around the the outside so you can hear the music being played. This would add so much more to the atmosphere. We’ll definitely go back.

Went for a birthday. We sat outside, it was only 2 of us and the service took forever! We waited large amounts of time for drinks, our food and desserts. When we got our food it was cold and when we mentioned it they took the plates back with an attitude for it to be corrected. We then had to ask another waiter after waiting 20 minutes to get our check for us.

Food was ok but service was horrible. Had to ask for silverware. Had to ask for the complimentary bread and then they didn't care to bring dipping oil with it. Saw the server 3 times. He didnt care to interact with us but was very chummy with his other tables. Didn't tell us about specials. Basically made us feel like a burdern. This was our first date out in months and our first time here and I wouldn’t recommend it. Definitely did NOT get the larkins experience

Love Limoncello! However, the acoustics inside are horrible. You have to really raise your voice to be heard by guest at your table. You can’t carry on a normal conversation due to the noise level. Outside dining tables have been added. It’s a really nice place. Our waiter was fantastic. Very knowledgeable of the items on the menu. He was very helpful and pleasant. $2.00 Prosecco Tuesdays! Yum!

The food was good. Unfortunately they didn't have two of the items we wanted to order from the menu. Our server was great, but he was covering too many tables. The restaurant was obviously understaffed for that evening. It was a week night--not a weekend--so perhaps it's different on a weekend. We were celebrating our anniversary, and they graciously gave us a dessert in honor of the occassion.

This was my second time to go to Lemoncello. I made my reservation through open table and when I arrived I had my choice to sit inside or outside. The weather was beautiful so we choose outside. Ordered the strawberry ricotta toast appetizer and it was larger than anticipated. This would make a great dessert choice too. Then we choose the pear pizza and it was plenty to share. Oh - and the best was that it was Prosecco Tuesday! Service was pleasant and not over powering, whereas we never felt rushed. Atmosphere was where everyone seemed to be having a great time.

We were seated in the very back section of the restaurant. Ambience was only so-so. Service was OK. Food was good. We understand they are shortstaffed so we were very understanding. Next time we will wait and sit outside.

Seated right by kitchen, super slow service.
One plate was completely cold. Eggplant was very chewy. We have had good experiences here before but the last two have been disappointing.

Asked for a table outside when I made the reservation but when I checked in they told me they could not accommodate. Our server was friendly but we were not checked in with often. The table behind us had dessert and coffee when asked. We had to ask and remind server for coffee and when served it was served in a paper to go cup. I understand the challenge of service workforce right now so it won’t prevent us from coming back but also felt with a 9 pm reservation it was not at the height of dinner hour

Busy Saturday night. Hostess moved us at our request away from the kitchen doors but failed to tell our server or provide us with any place settings. After waiting 10 minutes we finally had some one track down a server. Once he took over we were well taken care of. There were 4 of us. Food quality was mixed. Penne arrabiata and eggplant parmesan were very good. Flavorful sauces. Creamy Tuscan Chicken with creamy tomato broth had to be sent back as it had no sauce. Shrimp Prosecco had no visible basil and only a couple pine nuts. Tomato sauce nit tomatoes and overdone shrimp. Also had to ask for bread for the table.

Everything was great, including the food and the service. The noise was about high but it was prom weekend so I figured it would be a little noisy. Plus, they just relaxed the Covid-19 regulations so, I understand.

First time here out walking around downtown. Sat at the bar abs had an awesome experience. The bartender was attentive, knowledgeable.
Great drinks, yes you have to sample the limoncelli. The espresso martini was great also. I ordered the eggplant parm and was very surprised on how great it was. Something I would return for. The meatball appetizer is a must have. If you go I do not think you will be disappointed

It was good, not extraordinary, and is not a “must return” for us. Our entrees were a little slow to come out, but staff were responsive and friendly with requests.
