I picked this restaurant because of all the reviews and their amazing photos of their dinners. This restaurant did not disappoint. The service was excellent, the Limoncello martini was delicious and the food was amazing. We went on a Saturday night & they had live music. It was the perfect place for a fun double date. We will definitely come back & recommend this restaurant

We got to the restaurant a half an hour earlier before our reservation so we could sit at the empty bar for a drink to catch up. The waiter said we needed to pick, either a table or eat at the bar. He said his bar was full. I should have taken a picture of the empty bar. We sat at a table. It became so loud and customer’s were so obnoxiously absorbed in their own tables laughter and discussion that we couldn’t even have a conversation The food was great. Our waitress became so overwhelmed with her customers that she wasn’t able to bring us our wine with dinner.
Yes the food was great, but I will not go back.

Fantastic food, ambience and service. If you love Italian food, this is the place to be!
Keep in mind- the specials of the day are quite pricey compared to the everyday menu, but worth it.

They honored our reservation, which I find refreshing, that they actually have/hold a table for you. We were put at a small table rammed between two slightly larger tables, would have liked more space between us all. And other parties of 2 were seated at tables designed for 2 while the one we were at was tiny, with 2 seats but made for one. We ordered a series of appetizers and there was not enough room to accomodate them all. The server took our drink order which did not arrive for 10 minutes (seriously). I tried to get his attention several times, raising my arm to flag him; he would come to tables on either side of us and not even look at us. At one point I called out to him as he walked past and still no response. I had to get up, go to the front and ask the maitre de to get him to come around. Server said the bartender was slow. Really? Nothing exotic: a glass of wine and a traditional simple martini? The food was good but service, not so much. Yeah, I'd recommend but with explanations.

Limoncello is a MUST!!

We have been vacationing in New Smyrna for years. The food is amazing and the waitstaff is great! June 28th, our waitress this year said she was new, maybe her 2nd week and she was fantastic! Appetizers, drinks, entrees and desserts… everything was excellent. We are a large, family group of 13 and we all always enjoy!

Visited Limoncello for father’s day, both my father and I’s first time visiting this restaurant. My father got the swordfish special which he thoroughly enjoyed and for myself I got the ravioli eggplant special which was filling and delicious. Staff was kind and very attentive.

Server was great. Drinks great. Steak very good my med rare a bit more on med side though. Nice presentation on salt block but a bit overpriced Chicken Marsala to thin. Not enough Marsala flavor. Needed more flavor. Only ate 1/2. Couldn't finish the chicken. 3 stars.

Advertised a seafood platter with scallops when they were all out and specifically asked for no mussels and it came out with mussels and then asked to just substitute with more shrimp and the waiter came out with 2 measly shrimp and 5 clams. The wait staff claimed they would make up for it with a cannoli and a shot that we did not even want. The right thing to do would have just been to comp the meal, but that didn’t happen. It was an infuriating experience and we will not be back and would not recommend this place due to its poor customer service.

We got a nice table & had a 7:45 reservation for 4. We had a very nice server however he did not show us any of the meats which we saw him showing to other tables after we placed our order. We are very big meat eaters and would’ve definitely ordered steak or ribeye if we need this was available. I was there the week before and was not offered the meat options either. Very disappointing.
