    Such a wonderful place to dine. Attentive staff, delicious food and great ambiance. We had a group of 7 and despite the menu's 1st page being a quarter of rules for group dining, we had a wonderful time.

    Went to Limoncello for Thanksgiving dinner. The restaurant was very busy. The Thanksgiving menu was a preset menu. My friend and I started off with the Bruschetta, which was very tasty. The menu said they had a vegetarian option for one of the sides, which is stuffing, but the waitstaff said they were out. Our reservation was fairly early at 6:30pm. We told them we didn’t want the sausage stuffing but they brought it out anyway. The other side was string beans, which were good, but over sauced. For my entree I ordered the turkey and my friend ordered the vegan pasta. The turkey was over heated under the warmer/in the oven and slightly burnt and dry, despite it being covered in a lot of gravy. I advised the waitstaff and they brought me another serving which wasn’t as dry, but it was just okay. My friend’s pasta was okay, kinda one note. The wait staff were clearly working hard to keep up with the holiday dinner crowd. I felt like they could have used an additional person to help out. The kitchen staff also seemed to be working hard to keep up. They did accommodate our request for a dessert other than was on the preset menu and served us lemon sorbet, which was nice. Over all the experience was so so. I wouldn’t go back there on a holiday. Perhaps their regular service is better.

    We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at Lemoncello. The service was warm and friendly, and the food was quite tasty. My only complaint would be that the chairs were uncomfortable and the tables too small for our party of five. We could barely fit our dishes on the table. A few of us dropped our forks and literally didn’t have enough space to bend over to pick it up. The style of table doesn’t allow anywhere for your legs. The chairs were also exceptionally uncomfortable and noisy. A high pitched, nails on chalkboard sound occurred when scooting the chair back. Our server was exceptional. She was quite friendly and attentive.

    We had an early dinner reservation on a Thursday during Seattle Restaurant Week, and within a short time all the tables were full, and it was bustling. It was our first visit, and we were a bit surprised by the funky, Formica table decor, but were really wowed by the food. We ordered from the $35 SRW menu. I had a tasty burrata appetizer with loads of sauce to soak up, and my husband had the bruschetta. There were a lot of choices for the entrée, and we had the cannelloni and the lasagna, both really delicious, well-prepared, and beautifully plated. We each had Italian cheesecake with a guava sauce, which was out of this world! The drink selection was good, and they offered wine and limoncello flights, apparently only for those ordering from the SRW menu. They were a bit overwhelmed, and the service was a little slow, but still within reason. They declined to serve us after-dinner coffee, I assume because they were just understaffed for the amount of business. We will definitely return.

    The food was super fresh and delicious, from the antipasti to the main course, and we were so full at that point we didn’t order dessert…. This is one talented chef, to be sure! Our server was great, although I think they may have been short staffed as we didn’t see him as frequently as we might have liked. The only thing that was off-putting for the evening was the stated expectation for minimum spend at the table by party size; I understand why they may do this, but I felt less like a guest and more like a check as a result. Altogether I would recommend this restaurant for its quality and authenticity of food, it’s fun bistro atmosphere, and it’s great downtown location.

    Love Limoncello. Food is always delicious. Not thrilled about ordering an appetizer platter but getting charged for the bread to eat the food on the platters with. Would be nice for the bread to just come with the platter.

    Rudest service and staff I've ever experienced. As soon as we walked in, we were yelled at to wait. The waitress didn't like the way my sister was sitting, don't touch anything....don't breathe wrong at this restaurant!! Food was just OK. The concept is there but the flavor just doesn't quite make the cut. Had high hopes for this one as was sorely let down 😔

    Limoncello was recommended by a local to us for authentic Italian, and it did not disappoint. We very much enjoyed our dinner - the Ravioli di Carne was spectacular and their pizza of the day was among the best we have ever had. Such a wonderful crust and sauce. Highly recommend this gem!

    We took our entire staff of 13 here for a celebration dinner and asked and were seated in their outdoor space. I can not even begin explain to you how wonderful the dinner and service was. We arrived early and were welcomed by the owner to seat right away and to take our time. I had preordered antipasto and wine, and from there the food just flowed. Every dish was delicious and beautiful to look at. Misha was a most amazing server and was always smiling and playful and made the event even better. We had a most enjoyable evening and everyone raved about the food and the service and mentioned they can not wait to return and bring their partners for a return trip. Thank you to Limoncello for a fantastic evening.

    Our experience was awful….it took 20 minutes after being seated for anyone to wait on us. There were only two of us at the table and they brought out only one meal. 25 minutes later the other meal arrives. No apologies for the delay in the 2nd meal and no compensation for the terrible service. Would never recommend this place.

    The risotto was decadent and one of the best for the price in the area, was even served faster than the 45 min expected wait time. Servers were strained, definitely a bit hectic and I was unable to get change for my cash (a bit unusual for a restaurant). Besides that, it was great and everyone was quite friendly.

    We made a reservation and despite the restaurant being nearly empty, they sat us outside, where it was hot, muggy, and loud. Motorcycles driving by were so loud they startled us on multiple occasions. They did not allow a booking option that would have allowed us to request indoor seating or outdoor seating.

    Very good bruschetta appetizer, all mains were pretty meh (cannelloni, marguerita pizza, ravioli, gnocchi), better than decent tasting wines by the glass, service was fine/good, environment was cool, prices were good especially for being on 1st in a touristed area. Just overall pretty underwhelming food, though.

    When we made a same-day reservation for four last week, we showed up and waited maybe 15 minutes after our reservation time because the extremely hard-working and courteous staff were preparing orders for a party of about 20 people. They were very apologetic, and I'll just say that they more than made up for the delay. The food was just incredible; we're not the type to order daily specials, but the specials there are fantastic. Limoncello is - without a doubt - our new favorite Italian restaurant. Thank you so much for your amazing food and service! 11 out of 10.
