“Excellent service, delightful dishes!”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

First I have to mentioned the excellent service received from the waiter; attentive to our questions and adding his explanations about the ingredients and dishes preparation, plus his recommendations. The environment in the restaurant feels very welcoming, warm and calmed, nice low music in the background. It was a lovely dining experience.

The food well prepared and cooked, delicious, both the entry (capresse salada), the main dish (salmon) and the dessert (panna cotta) I ordered.

Prices are fair.

“Great dining. ”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

We had a lovely dining experience at Limoncello. I think the trip-advisor location is off. It's more on C.29 near Avde. 3 or so. East of the train station a block or two with a left-right-right hitch, so pedestrians beware. My wife and I each had mushroom based dishes and both were great. Risotto del Bosque and the mushroom ravioli. Prices seemed very reasonable for the presentation and flavor. Service was great. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Incredible food, wine and service at a great price”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I have had many a meal and never have I been dissatisfied. The menu is extensive and a choice of many spectacular meals. The service is second to none and the wine cellar would impress anyone without a bit of knowledge regarding wines. I highly recommend this restaurant for a family dinner or a romantic meal......

“Great food, great service!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Fine Italian dining with attentive wait staff. Gratuity was added to the bill, 10%, so beware! Although the staff got additional money for the fantastic service, the first 10% is included. For around 28 USD had a great steak, al dente pasta, great mixed salad and a mushroom appetizer. That included the tip!

Great family restaurant, romantic for couples. They even have a table outside for two...

We were surprised to have such delicious Italian food in San Jose, Costa Rica. Limoncello exceeded our expectations. The food was very impressive and the waitstaff was attentive. They also offer many gluten free entrees which appealed to us. We highly recommend Limoncello.
