Used to be good with creative chef when it first opened. Now some of the food tasted out of a jar. Servings are meager. No refills for soft drinks and asking for onions on a sandwich or dipping sauce for your seafood for your $20.00...More

Not good at all, the pasta sauce didn't have much flavour at all. Second rate to say the least. What is going on with this place. Had dinner there a few months ago and it was really good.

I really enjoy the food at Limoncello. I've had the fettuccine alfredo and the lasagna and both were delicious. The tomato sauce especially is really fantastic. The food here tastes homemade. The service is good and the prices are on par with other similar restaurants.
