It was Friday, 5/9. One of the worst nights at a restaurant. While the food is good, trying to get it is another story. The wait staff was terrible. Our party of 6 got our first round of drinks but after that, we waited at least another 1/2 hour before they told us the specials and then another 1/2 hour for them to take the order. We could not get water refilled or a second round of drinks. Never received the salad that was suppose to come with the entree. Not worth going back.

This was as bad a night at a restaurant as one could imagine. We showed up for our 730 res at 720 and we immediately placed at the wrong table.

After finally getting our waiters attention, we ordered our apps, salad and dinner. 8 pm, 830, 9pm went by and no food. We tracked down the waiter, then another and finally our apps came out. Now as 930 rolls by, still no dinner or salad. After pointing this out to the owner, he apologized and said he would get right on it. Dinner arrived at 945 without any salads. 3 of the meals were not as ordered.

Again we pointed this out to the owner who told us that he would take care of it later. The salads never came. When he offered us dessert and drinks which we couldn't accept since we were driving, he never adjusted the bill. Worse , he was non apologetic.

We will never go back and will make sure to let everyone we know what a nightmare it was. There are plenty of choices in the area.

Thankfully the band was the saving grace.

We went for lunch with a special long-time friend. There was a little chill in the air and we were seated close to the fireplace. It was the perfect cozy setting to catch up with an old friend. The place was fairly busy but not loud. It was easy to talk and we didn't have to wait too long for the food. My wife had the Chicken Limoncello and said it was delicious. I had a seafood over salad dish that was wonderful although a bit too much calamari for my taste but it was very good. (A calamari lover would be in heaven.) We shared some exquisite gelato based deserts and stayed to talk some more over coffee and tea. We never felt rushed. The wait staff was great. It all made for a delightful afternoon.

We have been frequenting this restaurant since it opened - the owners (Victor and Luigi) fixed up an old hotel, and the ambience is warm and comfortable. The food is always superb, and the specials are always varied and tempting. Try the cheese sampler for the appetizer! The service is always brisk and polite, the wait staff attends very well, without hovering. We have never had a bad meal (lunch or dinner), and this is my go-to place when entertaining employees from our other locations. They also offer outside dining during the warmer months, and have great holiday menus.

My husband and I have been wanting to try Limoncello for quite some time now and we finally had the chance tonight. We wanted to go out to celebrate our anniversary and figured it was a good time to try the restaurant. I made 5:00 dinner reservations and we were seated promptly when we arrived. The wait staff was very polite and attentive. The food was delicious and it's presentation on the plate was beautiful. I had the flounder and my husband had a vegetable homemade linguini dish that was on special for today. We also decided to get dessert as well, which we don't usually do when we eat out (we figured we should splurge on our anniversary!). I had the flourless chocolate cake that was topped with vanilla ice cream and my husband had the tiramisu. I have a gluten sensitivity and the waiter made sure that my meal was completely gluten free. The flounder was fantastic and came with mixed vegetables and potatoes. We also ordered the asparagus appetizer which was also excellent. My husband loved his meal as well. As for the flourless chocolate cake--- it was one of the best ones I have ever had (it was also gluten free!)!

Prices were on par with what you would typically find with this type of restaurant.

History buffs would love to dine here! The restaurant has an interesting, as well as haunting, history-- and the waiter was happy to tell us all about it! In the 18th century, it served as a jail and an extensive network of underground tunnels were constructed to get prisoners to the courthouse from the jail. Some torture was done to the inmates and the waiter said some of the original prison equipment is still in the tunnel system or in the attic. In the late 1700s, an inn was built. George Washington and James Cagney had stayed at the inn. The inn closed in the early 2000s, making it one of the longest running inns in the country. The waiter told us that from time to time, people have been known to see ghosts- mainly when someone takes a picture, it appears in the photo. Also, he said, lights have turned off for no reason. The inn was converted into apartments. Last year, they had an outside paranormal group come in and the restaurant offered a 5 course dinner followed by a tour of the tunnels. They also had a seance. The staff said they may have the event again this year (as per the hostess, details would be posted on Facebook and on their website once and if it's figured out to have the event again). They have one of those historic marker signs by the front entrance to the restaurant, providing some of the historical details of the building.

They have a small parking lot in the back as well as ample street parking (make sure to bring quarters for the parking meters if you park on the street).

We were very satisfied with the food, the service, as well as the ambiance of Limoncello. It also has a rich history, which makes it much more interesting! We will definitely be eating here again in the near future!
