Description: Limoncello Ristorante is a Northern Italian trattoria and a beautiful Tuscan style setting where every meal is prepared with a passion and served with a flair for an out of the ordinary dining experience. Lovely, Al fresco dining on our seasonal garden patio. A true Italian experience direct from Italy from owner and executive chef Giancarlo Balestra. Fresh farm to table ingredients and fine imported wines. "A little sip of Italian summer. " Located steps from Congress Park in the heart of Saratoga Springs across the street from the Holiday Inn.

We went to dinner Saturday night with another couple. We made reservations for 7:00, one of the few places in town to take 7:00 reservations. We went early to have drinks at the bar. The specialty drinks were delicious! My favorite is the limoncello martini, yum! We were promptly seated at our table at 7:00. The fried calamari and bruschetta appetizers were excellent. Our entrees were penne a la vodka, pasta carbonara, gnocchi with Bolognese and veal saltambocca. They were all wonderful and nicely presented. The service was very good, the waitress was attentive without hovering. The host and hostess ( the owners) are warm and gracious and treated us like guests in their home. Prices were reasonable. No room for dessert. Highly recommend Limoncello and will definitely return soon.

Went to Limoncello twice this summer and both times we enjoyed the wine and the food. Service was good. Only complaint was that we had to ask for water glasses to be filled and for additional bread.. Upscale restaurants usually tend to those details. Portion size was adequate but not generous. Would return for another experience.

This was our second visit to Limoncello. We had a great experience the first time. This time we were disappointed. We can understand that it was a very busy time of year but the service was terrible. Ubviously understaffed, and the attitude of our Waitress was awful. Our salads took over 45 minutes to arrive. After another 45 minutes we got our Dinners and both were ice cold. I ordered the Pasta with smoked salmon, Spouse ordered the Filet. When we could finally get the waitresses attention she said she couldn't take the Filet back to warm it because it would change the level of doneness, then she just walked away. We were never asked if we wanted to see the Dessert menu, but just given our check. We felt we were treated rudely because we complained that our food was cold. We will not go back again. Saratoga Springs has many better options.
