Lovers of authentic Italian food with an original twist should make sure that they pay a visit to Limoncello Italian Restaurant. This trendy restaurant offers a stylish setting and friendly service that is sure to suit a range of different types of diners. The moment that you step through the door at Limoncello you are greeted by the scent of freshly baked pizza dough and pasta, while the light background music is set to relax visitors and put them in the mood to enjoy an excellent meal.
Limoncello is famous for its pizza and the restaurant’s classic margherita pizza is sure to impress. All of the restaurant’s pizzas are freshly prepared and cooked in a wood fire oven. The kitchen is open, which allows visitors to watch the chef preparing the pizza dough with professional flare.
In addition to classic margherita, people who have a passion for pizza will be able to order delicious combinations such as pizza alla Napoletana, ai quattro fromaggi with mozzarella, scamorza, gorgonzola and parmesan and the signature Zanotti pizza, which is thin and crispy and comes with plenty of Parma ham and mascarpone on top.
The chefs at Limoncello have also worked their magic to create a number of slightly unusual dishes such as mushroom soup with beans and the wonderfully tangy tagliatelle al limone gambaretti. Limoncello’s spinach and ricotta cannelloni is also served with a twist and the accompanying tomato sauce is rich and thick. All of these dishes are just waiting to be enjoyed with a glass or two of Chianti, while diners who have a sweet tooth will want to make sure that they save room for desserts such as panna cotta or fresh, full flavoured strawberries.
At Limoncello choices are made easy.
One of the great things about Limoncello is that the menu is relatively small, which makes choosing your dishes a simple process. There are around half a dozen main courses to choose from as well as a dozen different pasta dishes and of course the restaurant’s celebrated pizza.
Diners at Limoncello will also be impressed by the efficient service provided by the waiters, while the subtly stylish yet cosy décor strikes exactly the right tone. And despite the ever increasing popularity of the restaurant, diners will be pleased to discover that the dishes are reasonably priced.
Limoncello was established by two Italian friends Zanotti and Ugolini and the restaurant takes its name from a type of traditional Italian liquor that is made from the zest of the special Femminello St. Teresa lemons.
Italian in every way.
In addition to this stylish branch on Sukhumvit Soi 11, people who are planning to take a trip to Phuket will also be able to pay a visit to the original Limoncello Italian Restaurant, which was established back in 2007. Since this time the restaurant has earned a reputation for being one of the best restaurants on the whole of Phuket, which considering the competition is quite a compliment.
Zanotti and Ugolini have used their experience to create a branch on Soi 11 that meets the same high standards as the original. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion with friends or a loved one or simply want to snack on authentic Italian food at lunchtime, Limoncello Italian Restaurant is the perfect place to hang out.
