 Amazing meal and service
We had a party of 8 on Thanksgiving. We all grew up on Italian Food so for us this was a real treat. Service was really spot on, our server Elias did a terrific job. We all LOVED our food and experience here. We will be back on our next visit to Cancun. I would classify this as Fine Dining with a moderate price tag.

 Dear Lord! How haven't you been here yet???!
I rarely get this excited over a restaurant where I feel compelled to write a review. But this place, dammmnnn!!! My husband came here ten years ago while vacationing with his friends and I remember him going on and on about this place. He had no remembrance of this btw. When we booked our first trip to Cancun together it was immediately on the list. After our dinner he remembered why he boasted about it so long ago, and I have now found my favorite restaurant (so far!) in Cancun. The food was 5 stars all the way, and this is coming from two Italian-Americans who are used to their mom's home made sauce and cooking. The food style here is definitely more authentic Italian as opposed to American-Italian, so sauces are not cooked long and more marinara based, as opposed to meat based and simmered for 6 hours. Once you accept that, you are in for a treat! We got the mozzarella cooked table-side that we were basically orgasming over. It's a must! We also shared the meatballs and a Cesar salad which were both amazing as well. Cesar is made table-side as well and done to perfection. Dinner was pasta and pizza and although not our favorite part of dinner, was still fabulous, but the apps were the star of the show.We are staying at the Hyatt Zilara across the street which is all-inclusive and also known for its great food. However they do not have an Italian restaurant here (their loss) and they should consider giving out passes to this place so everyone can experience a great Italian meal during their holiday. Our server Jamie was amazing, he was always there and anticipated what we needed without being overbearing, exactly what a good waiter does. We never had to ask for water either. I drink a lot of water and it's a huge pet peeve of mine when my glass goes empty, which if you've read other reviews of mine I'm sure you've seen me go off about that. Service here was too attentive here to let that happen. So overall I had absolutely no guilt spending money on food at a different restaurant while we are getting it free at the resort. Our bill was around $130 for the two of us, which included 4 vodka drinks (2 of them doubles) 4 appetizers and 2 entrees. In my opinion, berry reasonable for the amount of food we ordered. We will likely make a second visit while here! If you like great Italian food at reasonable prices with amazing service and an incredibly diverse menu, then what are you waiting for?

 Fabulous Restaurant!!
We were craving Italian, and this restaurant did not disappoint...in fact, it exceeded every expectation. The setting is right over the water on the lagoon, with a soft breeze and reflected light, so it is very romantic. Our Caprese salad that was prepared tableside was unbelievable and very interesting to watch the cheese being made. My husband had the seafood linguine with a vodka cream sauce, and he says it’s one of his top five meals of all time. My spaghetti Bolognese was yummy. Our waiter Jaime was professional, experienced, and provided just the right amount of attention. The only bummer tonight was that we did not get to see any crocodiles! But we are so happy that it is early on in our vacation, because we will certainly be coming again before we leave Cancun.

Visited here in November 2017. Great dinner and lovely view. The wait staff was particularly helpful in making a selection. Nearly every table is by the water. Moderately priced for a nice evening out.

 Unbelievable place!!!Best food and service at Cancun! Regresaría mil veces
On our final day at Cancun we wanted to enjoy and special dinner and we did the search many good reviews about this place so we decided to check it out. Indeed the place is just amazing , so beautiful!!! Elias Pastrana was taking care of us at our table he is just the best, he was asking questions about our visit and we mention we were celebrating our anniversary at the end of the night he brought a "happy anniversary" dessert for no cost I was surprised and very pleased. Elias, the waiters ( Jose Luis ), and the cook our Salvadoran friend who made one of the most amazing food that I ever have made that night unbelievable. I even took the time to write this long review. We ordered 1 entree, 2 plates, 1 jar of sangria for $103 USD tip incluided definitely worth it for a special night.

Jimmy and Bernardo complimented the excellent food with excellent service. The fresh Ceaser salad made in front of you was a highlight. Along with the baked eggplant and chicken parmigiana. We were in Cancun for a week and went here twice.

 Our favorite restaurant in Cancun!
They specialize in Italian food that is excellent. Across the bay (by walk ways) is Lorenzello's - same owners and is seafood. The atmosphere in Limoncello's is amazing - very beautiful interior. All of the wait staff is excellent - our favorite waiter is Antonio who is terrific.It is built out over the bay - if you are lucky towards the evening you may see a crocodile come in.We have been there many times and never disappointed.

My wife found this place based on Yelp reviews. The concierge at our hotel, Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort Villas & Spas, made reservations for us. I came with my wife, sister-in law and her husband.We had:La vera mozzarella capresse - Mozazarella cheese, tomato, basil and extra virgin olive oil. Was delicious.Insalata Caesar - Chopped fresh cos lettuce in our classic and original Caesar dressing prepared table side. We enjoyed.Pollo Parmigiana - Breaded chicken breast topped with homemade tomato sauce and grated mozzarella, served with spaghetti. Sister-in-law enjoyed this dish.Ossobucco di Vitello - Veal shank, oven baked in its own gravy with Barolo wine, tomatoes and herbs, served with fettuccine. I loved veal shank; was able to get some of the marrow out which was delicious.Gnocchi di patate a tuo piacere - Potato dumpling served with your choice of bolognese, gorgonzola or pomodoro sauce. My wife enjoyed the gnocchi.Spaghetti alla bolognese - Spaghetti with bolognese meat sauce and tomato with a touch of cream and meatballs made with pork, chicken and beef.Unfortunately no room for desert this time.The restaurant is located by the water; wonderful and intimate. The service was attentive and efficient, Giraldo was our server and his assistant was helpful and very pleasant. Once you finished a dish all the plates and silverware were cleared and new plates and silverware are set and we didn't have to ask for refills. The food was excellent, everyone agreed this was an amazing meal. If you are looking for an Italian resturant I would definitley recommend.

This is the place to eat in Cancun!! We ate here two nights in a row it was soooo good! The service we received is beyond compare. We ordered the tomato, basil, mozzarella appetizer was made table side and it was the best cheese we have ever had. The gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce is to die for, as well as the pumpkin ravioli, short ribs, risotto, prosciutto wrapped pears...everything we ate was absolutely wonderful! Eat here you won't be disappointed!

We enjoyed an excellent dinner after my daughter’s wedding rehearsal last week. We started with. The table side prepared Caesar salad, skirt steak, and flan. All of which were nicely presented and delicious! The pleasant environment and service made this a special evening.

 Best Italian Style Restaurant Ever.
The restaurant is beautiful. I was immediately taken by the hardwood floors, but then the incredible service took our attention. Our waiter Elias, was knowledgeable and totally professional. The food was outstanding in taste and presentation. Limoncello offers a first rate experience. Pricing is on the high side for Cancun, but more quite reasonable relative to South Florida, where we come from.

Beautiful restaurant on the water. We were seated immediately and our waiters were quick to take our order and bring our food and drinks. We really liked the quiet atmosphere.

 A Very Special Dinner in Cancun
Four of us went out to this waterfront Italian restaurant for a special dinner on our first night in Cancun. It did not disappoint, providing excellent service and great food. The pasta with tomato sauce and shrimp was excellent, but the hit of the evening was their giant meatball apitizer, a meal in itself.

We went here for our anniversary for somewhere different to celebrate away from our all inclusive. Food was lovely so good we went back again. Our server Lois couldn't have been any better. This is our food from both nights was Polpetta and Bolognese and lasagne. The Polpetta was really nice but is a massive portion. Both nights we were stuffed and certainly didn't over indulge. Would recommend this restaurant

 Great! Awesome Birthday night
I came with my roommate to celebrate her birthday. Antonio was the best server. Loved the food and Coffee ❤️ it was a great place to go with a friend. Drink wine and have a great meal. We had the raviolis (pumpkin) the chef salad and the pear with prosciutto. Lastly for dessert we had the ricotta cake... also, my roommate had her tiramisu cake from the house and the team sang happy birthday in Italian! How awesome is that? Really recommended!

Limoncello is a fantastic restaurant! If you enjoy fresh seafood and homemade pasta you will not be disappointed. The restaurant is located on the water, with a terrific view of the Laguna. Live piano music and candlelight make it the perfect atmosphere for a romantic dinner, but it is a lovely place to enjoy a family dinner as well. Everything from the fresh oven baked bread to the tiramisu and flaming coffee was wonderful. And all was enjoyed with the tedious care of an attentive and courteous staff. We will most definitely add Limoncello to our "must return" list.

We first found Limoncello in 2016. Let me tell you I looked forward to our return all year. For the first time ever we stayed 2 weeks in Cancun and we ate here 3 times. It is excellent. You cannot miss the table side Caprese Salad with Mozarella they make AT THE TABLE. It is amazing. You must not miss this restaurant when you visit Cancun.

Our server Pedro was so attentive, very informed on the dishes offered, actually the perfect waiter and a little cutie too...We have a favorite Italian restaurant at home, but Limoncello beat our favorite hands down. The food was more excellent than we ever hoped for from beginning to end. We certainly will be back and ask for Pedro.

After a bad experience at my hotel and a horrifying bus ride earlier I took an expensive cab ride to Limoncello. It was worth every penny! Such a beautiful setting, amazing staff and my server was so attentive. The food was awesome! Even though I was solo the staff treated me like I was a party of 10! It was fun to watch the crocodiles swim up by the deck! Definitely recommend going here even if you are at an all inclusive. Best night!

The starter bread plate was absolutely deliiiicious. Our main courses & cocktails matched the first entree as well! Our server was so nice & patient with our spanish. We sat overlooking the bay by candlelight. Would recommend this place to anyone! The seafood was very fishy though so if you're not big into seafood maybe try another dish. Very well priced but felt like fine dining.

 Limoncello Italian Restaurant
One of the best Italian restaurants I have found. Reservations are not necessary, but during buy times it is good to have. It is near a bus stop. We took a taxi there and the bus back to Royal Cancun. There is no strict dress code, but it not a cutoffs and tee shirt restaurant. The chocolate cake was enough to share with two people. It was a deliciously dark chocolate. I intend to go back next year.

By far one of my favorite places to eat here in Cancun! The service was amazing. They are so attentive to every little detail and honestly are extremely friendly. The food was delicious and authentic, and the view of the lagoon was beautiful. I definitely recommend if you are looking for some authentic Italian food. Everything about this place is seriously perfect!

So good we came twice during our 10 days stay in Cancun. We were at the Riu Cancun down the road and fancied a change. If you order mozarella basil and tomato they actually make the mozarella at your table. It was amazing to watch. Great location. Great service. Lovely food. Can't recommend enough.

Very friendly wait staff. The mojitos were delicious, a little too delicious, we were struggling to convert dollars to pesos for an appropriate tip and the waiter helped us without being shady. Definitely go for a romantic and yummy dinner.

 Limoncello Italian Restaurant
One of the best Italian restaurants I have found. Reservations are not necessary, but during buy times it is good to have. It is near a bus stop. We took a taxi there and the bus back to Royal Cancun. There is no strict dress code, but it not a cutoffs and tee shirt restaurant. The chocolate cake was enough to share with two people. It was a deliciously dark chocolate. I intend to go back next year.

 Way beyond excellent!
By far one of my favorite places to eat here in Cancun! The service was amazing. They are so attentive to every little detail and honestly are extremely friendly. The food was delicious and authentic, and the view of the lagoon was beautiful. I definitely recommend if you are looking for some authentic Italian food. Everything about this place is seriously perfect!

 Lovely food
So good we came twice during our 10 days stay in Cancun. We were at the Riu Cancun down the road and fancied a change. If you order mozarella basil and tomato they actually make the mozarella at your table. It was amazing to watch. Great location. Great service. Lovely food. Can't recommend enough.

Fantastic end to an amazing night. Waiters also very good. Well worth visit. Great family memory.

 Best Cesar salad in the world!
We enjoyed the Italian proposals, but above all we loved to see how they prepared a real Cesar Salad at the table. Great taste and better show!!! Maiale Calzone is excellent!!

 Amazing meal and service
We had a party of 8 on Thanksgiving. We all grew up on Italian Food so for us this was a real treat. Service was really spot on, our server Elias did a terrific job. We all LOVED our food and experience here. We will be back on our next visit to Cancun. I would classify this as Fine Dining with a moderate price tag.

 Dear Lord! How haven't you been here yet???!
I rarely get this excited over a restaurant where I feel compelled to write a review. But this place, dammmnnn!!! My husband came here ten years ago while vacationing with his friends and I remember him going on and on about this place. He had no remembrance of this btw. When we booked our first trip to Cancun together it was immediately on the list. After our dinner he remembered why he boasted about it so long ago, and I have now found my favorite restaurant (so far!) in Cancun. The food was 5 stars all the way, and this is coming from two Italian-Americans who are used to their mom's home made sauce and cooking. The food style here is definitely more authentic Italian as opposed to American-Italian, so sauces are not cooked long and more marinara based, as opposed to meat based and simmered for 6 hours. Once you accept that, you are in for a treat! We got the mozzarella cooked table-side that we were basically orgasming over. It's a must! We also shared the meatballs and a Cesar salad which were both amazing as well. Cesar is made table-side as well and done to perfection. Dinner was pasta and pizza and although not our favorite part of dinner, was still fabulous, but the apps were the star of the show.We are staying at the Hyatt Zilara across the street which is all-inclusive and also known for its great food. However they do not have an Italian restaurant here (their loss) and they should consider giving out passes to this place so everyone can experience a great Italian meal during their holiday. Our server Jamie was amazing, he was always there and anticipated what we needed without being overbearing, exactly what a good waiter does. We never had to ask for water either. I drink a lot of water and it's a huge pet peeve of mine when my glass goes empty, which if you've read other reviews of mine I'm sure you've seen me go off about that. Service here was too attentive here to let that happen. So overall I had absolutely no guilt spending money on food at a different restaurant while we are getting it free at the resort. Our bill was around $130 for the two of us, which included 4 vodka drinks (2 of them doubles) 4 appetizers and 2 entrees. In my opinion, berry reasonable for the amount of food we ordered. We will likely make a second visit while here! If you like great Italian food at reasonable prices with amazing service and an incredibly diverse menu, then what are you waiting for?

 Fabulous Restaurant!!
We were craving Italian, and this restaurant did not disappoint...in fact, it exceeded every expectation. The setting is right over the water on the lagoon, with a soft breeze and reflected light, so it is very romantic. Our Caprese salad that was prepared tableside was unbelievable and very interesting to watch the cheese being made. My husband had the seafood linguine with a vodka cream sauce, and he says it’s one of his top five meals of all time. My spaghetti Bolognese was yummy. Our waiter Jaime was professional, experienced, and provided just the right amount of attention. The only bummer tonight was that we did not get to see any crocodiles! But we are so happy that it is early on in our vacation, because we will certainly be coming again before we leave Cancun.

 Unbelievable place!!!Best food and service at Cancun! Regresaría mil veces
On our final day at Cancun we wanted to enjoy and special dinner and we did the search many good reviews about this place so we decided to check it out. Indeed the place is just amazing , so beautiful!!! Elias Pastrana was taking care of us at our table he is just the best, he was asking questions about our visit and we mention we were celebrating our anniversary at the end of the night he brought a "happy anniversary" dessert for no cost I was surprised and very pleased. Elias, the waiters ( Jose Luis ), and the cook our Salvadoran friend who made one of the most amazing food that I ever have made that night unbelievable. I even took the time to write this long review. We ordered 1 entree, 2 plates, 1 jar of sangria for $103 USD tip incluided definitely worth it for a special night.

 Good but not great
Firstly the location of this place is fabulous right on the water and the you feel like you're somewhere classy. I found the service a little over fussy where your waiter is the one who refills your wine or water rather than doing it yourself. We had the Polpatta each to start which was delicious but a massive portion so it would've been better to share rather than one each. We both had the steak which was a bit of a let down as it tasted too salty. We shared the cheesecake for dessert which was ok but had better. Ordered an Irish Coffee and I must say it was quite a show watching this being made table side but think the steak should be the highlight of the night and not the coffee.

 A Unique Blend Of Italian and Mexican
My wife and I decided to venture out of the resort and try a meal together on our last evening in Cancun. We read a lot of good things about Limoncello and figured why not? We were not disappointed.Our waiter Pedro was very knowledgeable about everything the restaurant had to offer. He answered our questions, translated when we needed help and was a lot of fun teaching us a few phrases in Spanish.We tried the Pera Speck as the appetizer. It has a very unique flavor to it. I liked the combination of the pear and baked gorgonzola cheese - my wife not so much. The bread they bring you is home made and comes out warm.My wife had the shrimp alfredo which was very good. I had the surf and turf special that Pedro recommended. Pedro did not steer me wrong. The lobster tail was grilled and the filet mignon was cooked just as I had requested at medium rare. The restaurant itself sits over the lagoon. No air conditioning, but the windows swing open and the breeze was just fine. If you are lucky enough you may even see one of the local crocodiles swimming around in the lagoon. It was a Friday night and there was an older distinguished gentleman playing piano, which was a nice touch.There was no rush to get us out after we finished desert and were finishing our drinks and chatting. Pedro said "es su casa - stay as long as you wish." That was very much appreciated.If you are looking to try your first restaurant outside a resort, I would recommend Limoncello without hesitation.

Although not as wide as it’s neighbour, Limoncello’s menu is nonetheless plentiful. I had the combination seafood pasta. It was so very yummy. Service was great, staff were friendly. Well worth a visit.

Had really nice dinners again. Our 2nd visit and just as good as we remembered. Sat outside and was bit too warm...we were hoping to see a crocodile but no luck this visit. Veal was a bit tough, eggplant dish was really good as was the chicken Marsala ( chicken could be sliced with a fork) service was good..

Dinner was good and staff was friendly. Overall very expensive though, more than expected. Terrible tiramisu, which we were told was the "chef's specialty." It was so bad we could not eat it.

Wow, this place is something else really! Amazing food, amazing service, amazing views, amazing atmosphere! Very special place and I wouldn't hesitate to return. My only one complaint is that it is extremely pricey, but then you get what you pay for I suppose. We (my husband and I) had a two course meal each, 3 drinks each, price in GBP was £150. We spotted a huge crocodile on the lagoon at the end of the night which was awesome! Don't hesitate to go here guys!

 Great food and ambiance!
Great Italian dining experience! We had been here last year and wanted to try more of their delicious dishes. We started with the Caesar salad which was excellent. Since I was at an Italian restaurant, I decided to have the Ravioli Gamberi, a ravioli dish that was stuffed with shrimp and presented in a creamy tomato sauce. Delicious! Even the bread was good! My husband had the fresh linguini with white clam sauce and said it was outstanding! I had remembered a limoncello pie dessert the last time we had been there but they said they hadn't heard of it - maybe they took it off the menu? But they offered me some vanilla ice cream with a little limoncello poured over it - very good! Service was great and I would highly recommend sitting outside to take in the full ambiance of the lagoon. We'll definitely be back!
