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.
