Limoni transports you to the Dolce Far Niente era, where the sky and the sea, of an inimitable blue, embrace each other warmed by the sun and all around in the air the scent of … lemons.

Upon entering a majestic foyer with double-height ceilings you feel you've entered into a restored 17th C palazzo in Rome and near the sea. The colors and airiness are both refreshing and welcoming. And then we were met by the beautiful and exquisitely dressed Francesca whose command of many languages and style immediately make you feel like family. As you pass from the bar and into the dining room your eyes look up to a fresco of Poseidon giving life to sea creatures both real and mythologic. You have arrived for an evening in paradise. We are long time clients of Giuseppe's other accomplishment at Vilamoura, Thai Beach Club, and so are familiar with his generous spirit, lavish generousity, and appreciation for all things beautiful, delicious, and fun. These are traits that he has trained his staff to emulate and exude. Their uniforms are yet another reminder you are in Giuseppe's good care. The fixed menu, exceptionally resonably priced and actually inexpensive for any major European destination, was more a tasting menu which we enjoyed thoroughly. We had a spaghetti "granallo" with a tomato sauce made from five varieties of tomatoes, a truffeltta risotto, burrata with sun dried tomatoes, a veal cheek that was cooked for six hours and remarkebly tender, and our personal favorite, the Carpaccio della Contessa. This recipe derives from one at Venice's Cipriani and brings together the carpaccio with soy, ginger, and an exquisite parmagiano cheese ice-cream! As each course was served Alfredo, the maitre-d, explained the origin and inspiration, as well as principal ingredients, of each dish. For dessert we had a delicious baba au rhum and canollo with chocolate and pistacchio proudly and joyfully served by Limoni's pastry chef, Gino. The dining room staff are attentive, good spirited, and too numerous to name all here. There is an impressive wine list and sommalier to help you with your choice in the event you're confused. It was an exceptional evening and we will definitely return. Definitely make reservations, and this is a destination that serves couples of all ages, families, and larger parties for friends. Though exceptionally well priced, I would advise dressing up, and specifically long pants for men and either a dress or stylish slacks for women. Why, you might ask? For others you'll share the experience with and in respect to the evening you're about to enjoy and remember for a long time. In keeping with Giuseppe's goal to serve fresh food using seasonal ingredients, the menu often changes. I have labled this as fine dining, though from a budget perspective it's quite reasonable.

Wow! Without doubt the best Italian food we have ever eaten, superb quality and authenticity and every dish was incredible! Would recommend the risotto and the truffle pasta along with a mixed starter and oysters that are locally sourced. Thank you Manuel and all of your team for making our last night as a family here in the Algarve so special. So good we went back two weeks later for the Wed "jazz" evening and tried different dishes which were again all superb! Great value for money considering the location too and Alex ensured we had beautiful wine again at affordable prices on both occasions. We will return again 👌😁

From the first moment you walk trough the doors at Limoni you feel the Italian warm welcome. This feeling doesn’t go away until you leave. AMAZING WINE and of course the food… risotto you can’t beat and WOW the mussels. I have never tasted anything like this. When you think you are done, you are not! Use the bread to enjoy the beautiful sauce the mussels are cooked in. On top of that the staff are super attentive and always steer you into the right direction .. trust there advise and you have a wonderful evening 🙏🏻. Viva Limoni! 🍋

This was a very busy restaurant on Friday night (9-30pm) and our party queued for over 30 minutes at the entrance prior to to being shown to our table. The table for six consisted of 3 small round tables pushed together (not ideal). Eventually, when we went to place our food order, we were informed that there were no pizzas nor another dish that evening. The overpriced "cover" was limited to dry white bread with some olive oil. Our food arrived out somewhat sporadically. The saving grace was that most of the mains were good and the staff were friendly. The music was oppressive but the decor is superb. Hopefully, the management address the shortcomings as this deserves another visit.

We wish to thank you for your feedback, although we obviously regret to hear that you felt let down with your first experience with us.We strive to provide all our guests with unforgettable moments, but we clearly fell short of expectations in this instance. On that particular night, we suffered a glitch with our website booking so we were caught unprepared, and surprised with far more bookings than expected. Consequently we ran out of pizzas and many other dishes. We are however very pleased that you enjoyed the food, the service and the decor and sincerely hope to have the pleasure to welcome you back on a normal night.

We were so pleased we discovered this new gem for Quinta Do Lago which has gone straight up onto our top 5 restaurants to visit whilst we are on holiday. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable and clearly loved the food they were serving which was so delicious!!!! Wish we had more room to try more of the mouth watering dishes. Can't wait for our next visit.

Limoni is a true gem. And this review comes from a native Italian, who also happens to be a food snob. We have dined at some excellent local restaurants in the Algarve through the years, usually avoiding Italian cuisine. But I am very happy we discovered Limoni, because no other dining experience compares to this one in quality and service. When you step into this gorgeous restaurant, you realize you are in for a one of a kind dining experience. In the serene lobby, Barbara graciously and warmly greets the guests, telling the restaurant’s story and inspiration. The dining room is elegant and airy, with beautiful views and lovely decorations. Then we meet Giuseppe, the eclectic and charming owner of this restaurant. He treats his guests like family, personally taking all orders, describing each and every dish, happy to offer recommendations. Giuseppe is a true force of nature, with a contagious smile and warm personality. And his staff is like a fine tuned orchestra, everyone is not only extremely professional, but also happy and passionate about their work. Then comes the food: from the delicious breads, prepared in house, to the antipasti- all excellent - although my favorite is the phenomenal carpaccio, unlike any other you’ve tasted, each bite is an explosion of flavors. The pasta is all made fresh , and you can taste the difference. My favorite is linguine allo scoglio, in a spicy, yet light cherry tomato sauce, complemented by the freshest seafood bites. The tiramisu at Limoni is the best I have tasted in a restaurant, an excellent choice is also the torta caprese, a treat for any chocolate lover. Limoni will enchant you. Not only for the food, but also for its unique atmosphere and the lovely people, the cherry on the cake. Grazie Giuseppe, Barbara e tutto lo staff, alla prossima!

From the first entrance till the moment we left, what a quality. What Guiseppe and his team created in this new restaurant is in one word fantastic !!! Because we know the high quality Guiseppe pursues we booked a table with friends who visited us in Vilamoura. We were not dissapointed. High quality food, hospitality from the highest level from Guiseppe and his team. Great wine and food advise because we simply did not know what to choose. And the best compliment for the kitchen: my wife is a real food lover but not a real pasta lover at all. She said she had the best pasta she ever experienced. We hope to be back soon to experience the same quality and hospitality. For now, you stole our heart ......

From the moment you walk into the grand entrance, you recognise that you're walking into somewhere very special, with onyx facades, clever lighting and its very own wishing-well. The restaurant has just opened but the food, service and atmosphere were five star. In fact, the food is Michelin star quality - the finest Italian food we've ever eaten. Completely different to the types of food we are used to, so it was a great opportunity to try things we've never previously experienced. Very reasonably priced too! Limoni is going to be a big hit in the beautiful Quinta do Lago.

We were highly recommended Limoni , and it exceeded our expectation , from the wonderful welcome received to the delicious food . The setting is a Villa overlooking the pool , the decor is stunning the detail wow , the background music is at a level that you can converse but created a lovely atmosphere . Our waitress Corina was fantastic nothing was too much trouble for her ,in fact all the staff were brilliant , the barman Demi was a wizard at the cocktails . The Food was amazing , we had oysters and Caprese to start and Seafood linguine and Veal Milanese , 10 out of 10 to the chef . So yes we will return and without doubt recommend Limoni to our friends

From start to finish this was a lovely experience. The restaurant is stunningly beautiful. The food even more so. I’ve never had as tasty a carpaccio as theirs. Such a variety of flavours and textures coming through. The special pasta - a beef ravioli with sage was just on another level - such a rich filling but yet a delicate sauce to balance it out. My husbands mussels and seafood linguini were both stand out dishes and he doesn’t recall having better anywhere else and he’s sampled quite a lot of seafood linguini! Sandra was such a great hostess and went above and beyond, it was our anniversary so we were treated to a little cake and some Prosecco on the house too which was a lovely touch. The bill compared to some of the other restaurants in the area was extremely reasonable considering the quality of the food too. . There’s a great selection of wines and the staff were all friendly and attentive. We would love to go back here again and can’t recommend it enough.

Well, a treat for us! Only open three weeks and we have come to Limoni! The team are working to establish themselves in Quinta. The menu is a Taster Menu with a choice of from the sea or land at the moment until they move to a A La Carte Menu. . It has been a treat! Yes we are full and yes the food is beautiful. It’s an Italian with a difference. For those of you that know the Thai Beach in Vilamoura, then you will know Guiseppi who owns Limoni. However Thai Beach it’s not. It’s beautiful and elegant yet engaging and fab! Do try and enjoy the experience. It’s great!

We are delighted to receive such appreciation so soon after we opened, The tasting feast lasted a month and was an essential tool to assess which dishes our patrons appreciated the most. Our best-sellers are now in our A la Carte menu, but it is an ever changing one for the simple reason that Italian cuisine is one of the richest and most creative in the world, and our Chef is passionate in sharing new culinary experiences, with of course an emphasis on South Italy. The Thai Beach having now become an iconic meeting place in Falesia, it was natural that Giuseppe's new venture would be directed to his Neapolitan roots and thus Limoni was born and is far more about emotions and sensations than a mere restaurant. Do come and visit us again, we would be delighted to welcome you again.

We came here as a family of six with four teenagers. The service was excellent and they were great at advising on portion sizes and the type of food. We had the Italian board and caprese as anti- pasta and then for secondi had the veal cutlets (which were huge - luckily we were advised that one between two worked) some amazing home made pasta’s as well as the sea bream. All presented brilliantly and tasted good. The wine was a good selection and priced well. All in all a great evening.

From the moment we arrived, our experience of this restaurant was exceptional. I can’t recall any of the names of the staff unfortunately but they were all truly amazing! we were greeted and had photographs taken in the beautiful reception area before being shown to our table. The staff all engaged with us, taking time to offer recommendations for aperitifs, food and wine. The staff were so welcoming and friendly, probably the best we have encountered in Portugal in the many years we have been coming. The food and wine didn’t disappoint and we can’t wait to return! After a few hours here it felt like we had known the staff for years and we have already recommended it to friends and family. A truly lovely evening thank you :)

We visited Limoni having read the reviews and would agree that the food and the service is exceptional! The only issue is the up selling of the wine. We chose a bottle of wine for 40 euros and the waiter asked the sommelier to come over. He then gave us a choice of the one we had chosen and another one…we chose the other one! Which turned out to be 80 euros a bottle! Not helped by the fact we had 3 bottles so the bill was a bit steep! That aside Limoni is without doubt a cut above any other restaurant in QDL or Vale do Lobo!
