one of my favorite restaurants. brought an out of town guest and she loved everything. keep it up
The food was excellent, but the service could be improved.
If we hadn’t been greeted by an indifferent hostess I would have scored this experience higher. When we arrived she was on the phone which became obvious was personal. After about 2 minutes she addressed us and I told her we had a reservation. She couldn’t find it. I showed her my Open Table confirmation and she again said she had no reservation. She acted like she didn’t care. We were eventually seated, had a lovely waitress named Emily and a very good meal. Management comped us dessert, which was appreciated. First impressions mean a lot and in this case they were poor.
Great place for a great night with friends
Excellent. However, dessert menus were filthy. Seems you could easily copy a batch of new ones.
Absolutely amazing food. Gnocchi gorgonzola to die for. Great atmosphere. Great friendly service. All around great experience. Would definitely go back
The food was outstanding. I had pasta bolognese and my wife had the halibut, which was superb.
When I made the reservation I noted in the appropriate box, that we'd be celebrating our Anniversary. However, this fact was never once acknowledged by the hostess or our server Jake. This waiter has waited on us in the past and has been very attentive and considerate. That was not the case at our last visit. He seemed aloof and almost indifferent to my husband and me. He never offered to get us bread we had to ask a food runner if they would get us some. My husband and I saw Jake bring a party of two seated next to us, complimentary drinks after they had finished their meal. And telling them they were such a pleasure to serve. Meanwhile we're sitting there, with our Anniversary being totally ignored. We enjoyed our meals and the glasses of wine we had, but were discouraged to not have this special milestone in our marriage even mentioned.
We love Limoncello's and will likely return, but were disappointed. Perhaps the staff upfront as well as the wait staff could be more considerate in the future when someone notes a special occasion.
Great meal! Wonderful server. We live locally and brought some out of town guests. We had a great dinner experience together.
Great server, great service, great environment and fantastic food/drinks
20 th Anniversary
The food was incredible. Best Italian food I’ve ever had at a restaurant! We were seated outside, which was nicer than inside. It was a bit gloomy and loud inside. I recommend the burrata appetizer and the LOBSTER RAVIOLI!!
Great food. Every meal better than the last! Friendly snd accommodating staff
The place was so cute. The hostess was cold and rude. Our waitress was nice but she seemed almost like she was prepared for a complaint and was trying to avoid it. Our bread was so hard you could break a tooth. When I mentioned it she didn't offer new bread, she made a statement about how it goes in bread warmer and that's just how it is.
My husbands meal the beef orzo (it had fancy name) was so tough and really did look like a bowl of dog food. My pasta had good sauce but it was suppose to have crunchy eggplant, what it had was tough skin eggplant with mushy eggplant.
We ate pretty much nothing and with drinks was charged $80 (two drinks we had). Mostly though waitress asked if we wanted it to go and we said no, she never asked how we liked it, how our meals was, or why we didn't eat it. She didn't even leave time for us to complaint, she was like ok I will bring check and walked away. She dropped check and never came back, hostess proceeded and returned. I should have said something, the meal was expensive and terrible.
Love this place
We love coming to Limoncello every time we're visiting St. Michael's. The experience and food is top notch and phenomenal, looking forward to our next visit in October.
Menu and preparation outstanding. Excellent wine list for establishment of this nature. Servers were very friendly and attentive, but the staff was a little strained on a Saturday night. Biggest complaint was that the receptionist failed to note our table request on Open Table and also failed to confirm our arrival resulting in a dunning message from Open Table.
Great meal and terrific service from Sarah! We love the penne caprese and asparagus and shrimp risotto!
Limoncello has always been one of, if not the best restaurant in St. Michael’s, Md. The food, service, wine, drinks and atmosphere never disappoint!
Everyone absolutely loved what they had ordered. I don’t think you can go wrong at this place, everything they make is delicious, the wine list is excellent, and the service is superb! Go here for a special occasion or just go to treat yourself because it is excellent!
We had dinner and it was excellent. The service was very good and the food was excellent. Nice ambiance and it is a do again next time we come back to St Michaels
The restaurant was busy and quite loud. We sat outside, very nice. The waiter was professional and charming. The food was great.
The quaint lemon themed ambiance and a table in the back made this a great spot to celebrate our anniversary. Since we are both plant based eaters, the waiter was a god send as he was a vegan. He helped us modify the menu selections and his recommendations were terrific. The kitchen produced outstanding vegetarian fare. Even the glass of limoncello was perfect. Most difficult aspect of the meal was trying to get our busy waiter to process our check so we could continue to celebrate our night!
Everyone in our party enjoyed their dinner. We had the salmon, tagliatelle with wild bore sauce and veal saltimbocca. Delicious food and excellent service. Will definitely return when in St. Michaels.
Our appetizers were excellent: everything from salad to squid to eggplant. Entrees for all six of us were outstanding: duck breast, lobster ravioli, gnocchi, all wonderful. The service was superb: friendly, attentive, helpful. Then came dessert, tiramisu & lemon tiramisu. The lemon was overly lemony, which may be a matter of taste. The traditional tiramisu was topped with something similar to Cool Whip rather than real whipped cream, & it lacked both texture & taste. I was surprised & disappointed. Upon hearing my complaint, without requesting a refund, the waitress took the offending desserts off the bill, which further demonstrated her superior level of service. We would all return.
Setting outside was a big mistake, flies and noise, wrong time of the year
Food was warm but some dishes should have been Hot...
Our dinner at Limoncello was very enjoyable. The service, by Jake, was outstanding. He was knowledgeable about the menu, entertained our requests for minor changes to our meals cordially and was very attentive to us throughout the meal. Seating is a little tight and noise level is high so if you are in search of a romantic setting, this is not the place. If, however, you want great food, a varied menu and great service in a busy atmosphere....Limoncello is highly recommended.
Drink menu was extensive with a wide variety of wine options. Food was delicious and good portions
We were visiting from out of town and restaurant was highly recommended on TripAdvisor. Food was excellent but it’s difficult to recommend as service was awful. We waited over an hour for our food and it was not as if there were people waiting to be seated. The waitress came over and told us would be another seven minutes but it was at least another 30. There was no apology or attempt to compensate with dessert. Additionally we were told we could substitute penne pasta for mashed potatoes with a two dollar up charge. When the bill came it was six dollars per person. This was eventually taken off the bill as we complained.
Just lovely - a great waiter. The lunch was delicious.
Very loud. Food is creative and quite excellent. House made pasta to write home abour!
Our food came before our drinks did.
Excellent seafood! Not a fan of being sat right in front of the TV.
Second time visiting and the food was still as good as the first time! We enjoyed the branzino and pear and Gorgonzola pasta- both were truly delicious! Highly recommend
Everything was superb!
Great food and service.
Good food and service. A little less than friendly greeting at time of seating but that was corrected. Would go back
The food was excellent and we have never been disappointed in Lemoncello‘s. The waiter was a little out of sorts with the rest of the staff made up for it. We definitely will come back.
An outstanding experience across all areas. Food was excellent, well prepared and presented, selection amazing. Staff from bartender to server all friendly helpful and professional. Atmosphere inviting and conducive to having an relaxing yet top notch dining experience. Being in beautiful St Michael's just adds to the fun!. Recommend without reservations, in fact you'll need to go back several times to even begin to scratch the surface of the delights on the menu.
