Friends suggested we meet here for dessert. The reviews by other patrons are not very good, but we tried it anyway. It was not very busy for a Friday evening, maybe 3 tables having dinner. Service was cordial, but not welcoming. I can see why others were less than pleased with the service, but it didn't bother us. Cold water... More

I've been here a couple of times and neither visit was very good. You arrive and the restaurant is empty yet you have to wait to be seated, and that's only when the waitress notices you. After being seated we waited awhile for our menus and then waited another while for the waitress to reappear to take our order. Delivery... More

I have been going to Limoncellos for a couple of years for breakfast with a group of family and friends and had excellent food and service unfortunately our last couple of visits have not been good at all . The waitress totally ignored us when we came in for about 5 min ( and by the way we did have... More

Maybe I didn't try a main dish, it was packed for lunch but my soup was watery and lacked substance but my salad with house dressing was very good.

Service was really not there. Restaurant was empty, it was noon, and we had to wait over 10 minutes to be seated. Could not have specific fruit on fruit platter as prearranged plates are delivered with what's on. Fresh? I think not. I ordered pancakes and they were truly the worst I've ever had. They must have been delivered frozen... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the food at this restaurant. While the servers could be a little more friendly, the food was quite delicious. It was delivered piping hot to our table and it was well-seasoned and wonderful. I had the spaghetti bolognese. The gluten free crust on the pizza was delicious as well. Strong reviews from this party of... More

Well, this was certainly one of the worst dining experiences ever! From the cold unfriendly servers to the absolutely tasteless veal sandwich-a total bust! Instead of red onions on the sandwich, I asked for carmelized, which were offered on the meatballs sandwich. I could hardly see the onions there were so few, and I pointed it out to the waitress...

Had a soup and salad, the soup was uninspiring and I should have the other soup. The salad was perfect and generous with the dressing. Wait staff were excellent.

This restaurant's food tasted like a discard from Chef Boyardee. I have never been, until this place, to an Italian restaurant which left all herbs and spices out of its cooking. I actually felt like going back into the kitchen to see if there was any basil, oregano, thyme, garlic, onion, etc. My dish the Penne Bella was not as... More
