An Italian Restaurant called Lemoncello, opened up on the forgotten corner of Ithaca Street and Baxter, just a block away from Roosevelt where the 7 stops at 82nds street. Its prices are high for the neighborhood, but the food is fresh and tasty. I had seafood with linguine and my friend had the fillet of sole. Everything was light with fresh tomatoes and garlic. they are defiantly trying to make it a special dining experience. Their menu is extensive and so are their prices. I can tell they really thought about what the restaurant was going to be, it is an anomaly in Jackson Heights and Elmhurst. It was a nice change to the other fare in the neighborhood, if you didn’t want something pungent or pollo a la brasa. It is a family business, and everyone is working and the walls are painted bright yellow hence the name: Lemoncello. Has anyone else gone there?
