Reminiscent of our 3 years we lived in Italy -one of the best Italian restaurants I’ve been to outside of Italy. Bravo to the Napolitano chef! I had the Burrata appetizer and my husband had the grilled octopus - both were delectable. For dinner I had the Penne Norma and my husband had the Paccheri allo Scoglio - also highly recommended! Now We just need to move to St. Michael’s so we can eat at Limoncello on a regular basis!

Great Place to eat whether its an every day meal out or special occasion. Quiz your server. They know the menu inside and out. Interested in a dish just not a veal person, they will let you change the meat.

Lemoncello was an outstanding restaurant to visit. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The menu selection was broad however every item was well-curated. The service was consistent and well-tempered. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Limoncello and we certainly will return in the future.

Lovely as usual..sat in the main area where the lighting was warmer. Initially the server sat us in the corner against the wall where the lighting was different and much brighter. We asked to be moved and it was no problem. That side section does not have the same ambience. Food was good..would have liked some gelato on the menu at dessert time.

We were visiting St. Michaels and had tried Limoncello a couple of years ago on another visit. It was good so decided to go back and we were happy we did! The food is still excellent, the service prompt and professional and a fun vibe! My husband had the grilled calamari to start which was delicious! Grilled perfectly and complimentary seasoning that enhanced but did not overpower the taste. He then had the halibut special; a generous serving of fish served piping hot with again simple seasoning that let the flavor of the fish shine through. I had the Paccheri allo scoglio, it was delicious! The seafood was fresh, abundant, and cooked perfectly. Our server was delightful! We had a wonderful dinner thank you!!

This is the best restaurant in St Michael’s. The food and cocktails are outstanding and the service is top notch. Save room for dessert, the triple chocolate/mousse is wonderful.

Very nice local place...portions are good size. Three antipasto dishes for two people is more than enough...but if you are really hungry, then have one antipasto AND an entre and you'll be very full!

The service and food was wonderful! The wine selection was great but they also have a full bar for those who don’t drink wine. Would highly recommend dining here for anyone visiting the area like we were or for the locals any night of the week.

We dined here for lunch and received absolutely horrendous service. We shared 1 app and had 2 lunch entrees. We are not picky people, and had no modifications to the meals, so there is no reason or excuse that the entire lunch should have taken 2 hours. The waiter completely forgot about us.

After ordering drinks, it was a 20 min wait, then we put in an appetizer, received it, and finished it, and the waiter STILL had not come to take our order. Finally, he did 20 mins later. Then it was another waiting game to get our meals. I did not even wait for the check but instead handed him the credit card directly because I did not want to wait another 20 mins. The restaurant was fairly busy and even the hostess was bussing tables, but that is no excuse for poor service. Because of the long wait times, we tried to get on Wi-Fi, but it was password-protected. We had to remind the waiter 2x for the password, and the password he gave us still did not work.

The food that came out was disappointing. Of course, I was ravenously hungry and in a poor mood by that point. The portion size was tiny, it could not even feed a baby. Pasta is cheap, so I was disappointed they skimped out there. I ordered Linguine con Vongole. It was overly salty. Average Italian fare. Nothing memorable or great. And definitely not worth a 2 hour wait. Disappointed that the lunch menu did not contain any dinner entrees, as I would have preferred to order a dinner size. Also, there were dinner entrees missing from the lunch menu such as all the typical Chicken pasta Italian dishes.

I was looking forward to this place because of all the stellar reviews, and was horribly let down. My only regret was my fiance giving the waiter a good tip. Poor service should not be rewarded.
