we enjoy going to this place as a family - it has a great casual Sunday brunch. Food comes with good portions. Large breakfast menu. Staff is generally great. It is a bright place, and has an upbeat bustling atmosphere. Our kids love it too! You don't feel rushed there, although service is very quick. I would recommend for a... More

This is a group of senior ladies that go out for dinner once a month to different places. We had been to this place, Cafe Limencello and everything was fine but tonight we went back and two of the ladies got their dinners and the veal was tough and tasted sour and when they complained to our server, who was...

Love the atmosphere. Bright and colourful; brightens even the grayest Sunday morning. I have only visited for brunch, but it is a keeper. The omelettes are to die for. The service is outstanding on all levels; it is obvious these folks know what they're doing. Perfect way to start your morning. Definitely a cut above.

This is a nice little place. The staff are so pleasant and are great with making sure you have everything you need and drink refills. It's a nice place for Sunday brunch and nice for lunch and dinner

We went to Limoncello to catch up with some family for dinner and a visit. The atmosphere was great because the music wasn't blaring so we were actually able to chat and get caught up. Everyone in our group ordered something different to eat and no one was disappointed. The food was served hot and delicious. We had excellent service... More

We came for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon and the place is usually packed with business lunches and friends out for a day and a good lunch. We were sat after about 10 minutes, although this is mostly an Italian restaurant, they do offer healthier options for health conscious guests which we notice not many restaurants on Ottawa st. offer...

It was a good experience. We weren't rushed and the lunch menu was great. Lots of choices. Coffee kept coming if you wanted.

Delicious lunch today at Limoncello. I found the wait at the front door a bit annoying, with waitresses saying they'd be with us in a moment. It was almost like they wanted to create the illusion of a lineup to get in. There were many empty tables. I believe it would be to their advantage to sit people and hand... More

I went for lunch with a friend. Our server was very business like & did not smile at all. My friend ordered the chicken on ciabatta. It was a little dry so she asked for more mayo & was told there would be a $2.50 charge. This restaurant could be excellent with friendly wait staff & doing away with ridiculous... More

Last week, I utilized the online reservation tool to pre-book a table for Saturday morning breakfast. A couple of my family members are classified as legally blind, (ie they have very slight sight, can see shadows as long as the lighting is good) so I made a special request to have a table close to the window (best lighting). I... More
