We ate there a couple years ago. The room has a slight musty smell. The patio was very pleasant. Because of the musty smell, we didn't go back. The food and the family who own (owned?) the restaurant was very nice.

The food was beyond excellent and Giancarlo's suggestions proved to be spot on for our taste. Very warm and inviting atmosphere. We get to Saratoga about once or twice a year and will make Lemoncello our go to restaurant when we do.

Went to Limoncello twice this summer and both times we enjoyed the wine and the food. Service was good. Only complaint was that we had to ask for water glasses to be filled and for additional bread.. Upscale restaurants usually tend to those details. Portion...More

We ate here with a group of 8 people after a Skidmore graduation. It is a nice Italian restaurant with many options. I'd recommend a reservation if you have a large party and/or are going at a busy time (like racing season or graduation time)....More
