vealpiccata.jpgYes, chef Giovanni diMaio did deliver what we expected last week at a wonderful Limoncello lunch. I like to use the holidays as an excuse to take my mom and aunt out for lunch, and Limoncello surpassed our hopes. Manicotti with a dreamy ragu, veal piccata with fragrant vegetables — all partnered with glasses of various Italian varietals from the house menu — molto bene. And for dessert, we feasted shamelessly on flawless tiramisu — the kind that’s not-too-sweet yet plush with mascarpone creaminess — and a panna cotta to die for.

Even better – if that’s possible – Limoncello has just unveiled its new pizza menu, which means that you can enjoy rustic pizzas made by a master – as well as all those luxurious pastas and meat specialties of the house. Limoncello is located just about at the corner of Water & Ocean streets, and is open for lunch Mon-Sat: 831/427-0998.
