We were here with a group of 14 people and everyone's food was cooked and presented to perfection. The service was excellent and the prices reasonable for this quality restaurant. Our group... More

I recently dined at Limoncello with friends on two occasions in the past month. Both times were exceptional... the food was generous portions, delicious, and elegantly presented. I personally enjoyed a jumbo shrimp alfredo... and the shrimp was succulent - perfectly cooked in an entree easy to overcook. The chocolate volcano was truly a grand finale!

In here, you get the real deal, the ingredients used are real high quality, the food preparation you can tell was done by a Chef that knows his/her menu and how to properly prepare it and most importantly, you don't feel that you are overpaying for your food, you feel the price is right for the quality, the taste and...

After three weeks Costa Rica, this is for me the best. We had two times one antipasta shared by two, each a maincourse and a bottle of wine for 50 EUR.
