We booked a table for between shows of the cursed child at the palace theatre. We arrived early but our table was ready. The staff were friendly, and we soon ordered . The food was very good and tasty. Pudding was good. Very reasonably priced and good selection.

Booked to go to this restaurant, got confirmation, turned up 5 minutes earlier to be told that they didn’t have any space for my party. They blamed open table for booking the table even though they didn’t have space. We weren’t allocated any table and had to find another restaurant for food. Poor service.

Great location in Central London and good value. We were a party of pre-London Marathon runners so needed a carb meal. Exactly what we were looking for. Booked for 6.30pm but got onto the table at 6.45pm. Not the restaurant's fault, they had to wait for an adjoining table to become free. Would definitely recommend.

Our dinner at Limoncello was delicious and well attended by friendly staff. I was here to have a pre-London Marathon carb dinner and it worked out great. When crowded, the space is very small and noisy but most restaurants in Soho are like this, so really not a problem. Their menu is big and varied and offered many choices including delicious desserts. I recommend Limoncello for delicious Italian in the Soho District.

The food was quick and I can’t fault the efficiency of the service but there was nothing special about it - unsmiling waitresses, so so food.. awful desert, which is a shame as it was a special day out in London. There was no warmth to the atmosphere.

Booked this restaurant 3 weeks prior to visit as a treat for my Son and his girlfriend as they were at the theatre. Less than 24 hrs before the trip the restaurant called to say there were not opening. Very disappointed, unacceptable to be cancelled the day before left being unable to book elsewhere at short notice

At short notice we needed a table for 13 during the holiday period and Limoncello managed to fit us in. On the whole the visit was good, although those of us who went for non-pizza options were a bit disappointed by the chicken.

Terrible. Turned up for our reservation only to be told it was cancelled without any email. It was pouring rain and we ran to the restaurant. Apparently open table should have informed us. Very rude patron. We were shocked. Thankfully found a lovely tapas restaurant nearby. So worked out. However I would not book here after the treatment we recieved.

What a great place!!
A group of 10 of us visited on a Friday evening before going out and about and we weren't disappointed. The food was fantastic and there was a varied choice, the location was spot on but most of all the staff were amazing, they were all fun and engaging and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit again when in London.

Our first visit and it was great. I was worried about mixed reviews, particularly those reporting rudeness. However, food was tasty and there was more than enough, service was friendly and they were patient with us struggling to choose dishes. I had expected we might be 'encouraged' to leave as soon as we finished, seeing it so busy - pre-theatre time on Saturday - but we got to sit as long as we wanted. Two courses, drinks, bread and coffees for £20 a head. Pretty impressive! We will definitely return!

We went to Limoncello last Saturday lunchtime, pre-theatre. We were a family of 5 with children aged 10, 7 & 5 and were made to feel very welcome by the owner. Calamari and bruschetta starters were delicious, as were the various pizzas we ordered for main course, all washed down with a bottle of the house white. Would definitely eat here again. Grazie!

This restaurant is just across from a hotel whetre I stay often. The place was fairly empty, and when I saw the food displayed, I understood why. Before I sat down, I asked if they had WiFi. They said yes, so I proceeded to sit and look at the menu. Very unappetising. And then, the Wifi didn't work. They were rude rather than apologetic, assking if I came to eat or be on my phone!! I got up and left.

We popped in during the afternoon between seeing the Harry Potter plays. Food very good as was the service. We had both a main course and puddings. Portion sizes are good too.
There were two adults and a teenager in our party.

This was our second time at Limocello, we received the same attentive and speedy service, which is what made us decide to return as it's ideal for a pre-theatre meal. The wine list is good and affordable, and so is the Aperol Spritzer. We will be back!

Service was horrible - ignored us for most of the times and while serving was arrogant and unfriendly. We had a scampi rice dish and a meat dish also with rice as well as calamari as a starter and some dessert. Rice was over cooked, scampi were not identifiable and gave me some stomach ache afterwards and also the desserts and starter were not really tasty. The only nice thing was that it was cheap. We definitely never go there again and I also would not recommend this place to anyone.

My daughter wanted simple, authentic Italian food in Soho (or somewhere similarly lively) and Limincello fitted the bill perfectly. The food was fine - simple fare, as expected. Good food, with good, attentive service made this excellent value for money and as near a perfect occasion as we could have hoped for.
