We went to Limoncello for our anniversary and it was just perfect. Delicious food, extensive wine list, tasty dessert. The server was very attentive. Couldn’t have been nicer. Highly recommend

Our meal was good…except the veal scallopini was very tough and hard to cut.

Cozy atmosphere, extremely tasty food with options out of the ordinary for most Italian restaurants. Prices were very reasonable, especially for the generous portions ($32 for a solid slab of swordfish). The wait staff was very attentive and efficient. Delicious house-made limoncello and orangecello (who woulda thought?).

When our server was asked about what the side dish was on my dinner, he said “I don’t know.” Then asked the bartender and he came bank with “it’s a potato cake.” Brought our wine decanter (for a $150 bottle of wine) soaking wet to the table about halfway through our entrees. Terrible service. You all also need to dim your lighting to create a better ambiance.

Pappardelle with lump crab, scallops and shrimp was a mound of delicious mouthfuls. Veal Saltimbocca was so savory. The restaurant was a pleasure from beginning to end!

Cold mashed potatoes. More like a diner than a fine restaurant.
Some people in our party were pleased. I thought it was not as good as previously experienced.

The food was delicious! Could be the best pasta I’ve had outside of Italy! Our server Mary Ellen was gracious, friendly and very sweet. The portions were AMAZING. I recommend the octopus and beef carpaccio for appetizers. The gnocchi in Gorgonzola sauce was amazing as was the boar ragou with papparadelli.

A quiet evening in a town where most restaurants are closed on Tuesdays - we used Open Table to make a reservation and were seated in the window - a charming view of the shop windows decorated for the holidays. Tuesday is 1/2 price wine bottle night (who knew?) and so we indulged. The menu is lovely, many nice choices and our request to change the paired vegetable for the day's special was accommodated with nary a blink. After supper coffee was wonderful, dark & rich and served in nice large cups. Definitely will return to Limoncello!

Reservations are a must to enjoy this charming restaurant. Everything we ordered was delicious from a flavorful antipasto misto, to a risotto and all the way to cloudlike tiramissou and home-made cannoli positively stuffed with mascarpone. A platter of three perfectly cooked sea scallops complimented by grapes in a delicate sauce was particularly unusual and notable. Excellent bread provided the perfect "mop" for the nuanced flavors in the sauce. Friendly, attentive service did not seem to lag even though it was very busy. We intend to return.

The wait staff was not told that we were seated. It took 1/2 hour and a return to the hostess stand before a waiter came to our table. After that the service was great and the food was delicious. They also marked us as a no show in Opentable.

Great food and a great find in a sleepy town. (Off season that is) This has become a go to spot for us whenever we're in St. Michaels.

The food is delicious and the pasta is homemade which is so rare these days. We love it here, you will too.

Excellent surprise in St. Michaels! Everything about Limoncello was great. We were in town for a long weekend and were so pleased with our meal on Saturday that we stayed through Sunday to see if it was a fluke. It was not. Perfection both times. The lobster ravioli and tuna prosciutto melted in your mouth. The specialty pizzas and drinks were also a home run. Highly recommend the Limoncello Martini with Stohli vodka. We will absolutely, positively return. Kudos to the chef and management team. Reservations recommended! 🥰

This review does not pertain to Limoncello food, service, or anything like that. Rather it refers to the fact that Limoncello had no knowledge of our OpenTable dinner reservation and would not seat us. Very disappointing especially on a busy Saturday evening. Either OpenTable or Limoncello dropped the ball regarding our reservation that had been placed well in advance.

They did a fantastic job all around and will return. I require GF good and they knocked it out of the park with a risotto dish with mignon tip, mushrooms and gorgonzola cheese, my husband had the large tube pasta dish with pancetta, bacon and some Marina, perfect in everyway. Wine was perfect.

Charming Italian restaurant right on the main street of St. Michaels, with free public parking just around the corner. Perfect for a romantic dinner with a special person, or just for a change of pace if you're tired of seafood on the Eastern Shore. Food is good and prices very reasonable. The limoncello tiramisu was fantastic. Will definitely recommend to friends and go back next time we visit that lovely town.

We had hoped to sit outside but due to the weather that just want possible and our host surprised us with a wonderful table right in the window that was very intimate and perfect. They all knew it was our anniversary and treated us like we were newlyweds. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent.
