Limoncello Italian Restaurant
900 East Fort Ave
A bunch of us went to a happy hour at Limoncello's Italian Restaurant. I have to say that I was impressed with the contemporary style establishment. I considered this a high end eatery. We sat at the bar ordered some drinks and were served a couple of interesting appetizers. I consider this a nice place for a romantic dinner with your loved one or on a romantic date!
There were a number of different appetizers. They offered a prawns appetizers consisting of about 4 prawns. You may say why so few but prawns are considered gigantic shrimp with the head on. There was this marinated sweet sauce and quickly grilled to perfection, so the meat wasn't firm and rubbery.
The other dish served was fresh mozzarella balls. All made fresh at the establishment, semi soft and very tasty. Now, I am one to appreciate good quality and so far of the 3 dishes, they were excellent. Then there was one dish that we got. I have to say it seemed like a meat appetizer but the slices were literally razor thin. It was filet mignon. Now, I know its an appetizers but when serving Filet Mignon, there has to be a little thickness so we can appreciate the flavor and texture of real meat. It was cut so thin on the platter that you literally had to scape the plate to get a piece of thinly sliced filet mignon. If I'm going to eat a tender cut of beef, I want something I can appreciate when I take a bite. It's either that or the fact that filet mignon is very expensive and they were just giving us a sampling. But I feel a little thicker would be appreciated.
Although this was happy hour and the appetizers were all that was offered, I would go back and try their luncheon specials or dinner. Their menu was very interesting!
On a scale of 1-5 with 5 being excellent, I rate Limoncello a 4.
A "1" for available parking. I had to park at Starbucks.
