arrived for 7 pm reservation at 645. there was only one table available and by the looks of the line at the front door we decided to take it it was very cramped. We were never given menus. we sat there for 40 minutes and we were never were approached by anyone, so we left.

Always great quality. For special occasions because of the price but well worth it. Can be a little loud if there is special entertainment, but we sit outside so it’s no problem. Our favorite in New Smyrna Beach.

Limoncello south is a hidden gem, that should not be overlooked. The food... INCREDIBLE. The staff was extremely inviting, and made you feel at home. Their service was wonderful, and will always come back when in New Smyrna Beach!

We were excited to try this place. Had heard a lot of nice things. We have only been out to a few places and read on their website that they were practicing social distancing and not full capacity for indoor dining. We arrived at 5:40 and there were only a few tables with patrons. Within the next hour the place was full and not all tables were of 6ft social distance. There were a lot of tables. The service was good though the majority of the employees had their noses hanging out of their masks and kept touching their masks. We ordered drinks and then when we got them found out they were out of the liuxardo cherries. We ordered margarita flatbread off of the happy hour menu and it was basically a fat pizza with sauce and cheese. It was certainly NOT flatbread. The beet appetizer was delicious. There were four of us and three of the meals were great. The fish special (though it was different then what the server said it would be), the gnocchi, and the veal Marsala were all very good, seasoned well and hot. I ordered the pear and Gorgonzola ravioli. It came out cold so I sent it back to be warmed up. It came back burnt and hard as a rock to where I couldn’t cut it. It looked like it had been placed under the broiler. The server then told me a new one would be made. When it finally came out, everyone else was almost done eating, it was just alright. The Gorgonzola was very overpowering and I could not taste the pear at all. At no time did a manager come over to address the issues or anything. We were given limoncello after our meal to smooth things over. It appeared that our server was proactive and spoke to the manager about everything. We have all worked in the food service industry and understand that things don’t always go perfectly. This is not an inexpensive restaurant and with that comes a certain standard. I don’t believe those standards were met on this occasion. I’m disappointed that I am not posting a rave reverie today, I was really looking forward to it.

We could not believe how good this restaurant was. You would never think when you pull up to a place in the corner of a blue shopping center, by a Beall’s, that you were in for that type of dining experience. The food was as good as any Italian I’ve had. HIGHLY recommended!

The food and service were 5 star. Lack of social distancing would be my only reason for not returning in near future. I would recommend for their delicious food but not at this time. Every table inside was seated.

I went for a early bird dinner I had osso bucco with a side of orzo, and it was amazing. It came with a glass of wine. I shared the appetizer of eggplant which was delicious. I received a phone call from my doctor in the middle of dinner and took the call. We dined outside so I was able to speak to my doctor and it wasn’t too loud. The martinis were excellent also.
I will definitely go back!

Wonderful service from start to finish!! So nice to meet the owner - he was so kind, personable and generous! Our server was excellent and the food delicious. This was our first time here and we had a small, very small, complaint with one of our steaks. This was quickly corrected and we were given a free generous portion dessert of our choosing to make up for this. Also, they gave us a delicious piece of limoncello cake to take home. Soooo good!! We picked this spot due to the fact that they are taking every precaution during COVID. Thanks for that and for a nice evening out!! We look forward to returning and highly recommend. Nice to see a restaurant with the owner and staff being so personable and caring.

Luigi provides a delicious, authentic Italian (Amalfi coast) experience. We had the Prawns over linguine with white clams. The prawns were flown in from Argentina and tasted better than lobster! Best Italian in Central Florida. Amazing it’s in New Smyrna Beach!

We realize that the restaurant industry is bouncing back and there is an eagerness to get back to normal. We enjoyed the service and some dishes were really good, some just okay on the particular night we went. That said, social distancing was not happening here and it became quite crowded by the time we left, which made us a bit uncomfortable. We would go back again, but probably not until it is a bit safer to go out and/or they space out patrons better.

We drove from Palm Bay to visit the restaurant (mostly for the big cheese wheel which we didn’t even see) to be completely underwhelmed. Completely over rated to then have to pay $200 damn near for 3 adults and a child ON A LIMITED MENU. Food was alright and our waitress was good. Hostess in the pajama jeans told the chef to make our waitress hurry us up which I’m assuming they didn’t know we heard. Not our fault they took forever to bring our food out. They seem to not know how to handle being busy. We watched them all sing happy birthday AND play an instrument to another table and when it came for them to sing it to my moms friend, we only got our waitress.
