Limoncello Italian Restaurant

I just noticed it today walking from JH to Broadway. It's just on the other side of Roosevelt at 82nd/Baxter. Surprisingly, the menu is actually Italian, and not a Colombian restaurant that is called 'Italian.' (Perhaps I'm exaggerating a bit about the frequency of this, but I was a bit let down when the 'Texas Grill' turned out to have not much to do with Texas.)

I poked my head in and today was the first day open. I didn't have time for lunch, but grabbed a menu. The proprietor is a friendly guy who seemed excited about his new place.

It's cheerfully decorated (bright yellow, and in a space that gets lots of natural light) and has a menu that reflects not very inventive, but hopefully good, food. Appetizers are things like grilled asparagus, roasted peppers with anchovies, calamari, clams Possilipi. Soups are the expected minestrone, pasta e fagioli, and also a tortellini and a sparchatella. (Excuse my spelling, but it isn't so perfect on the menu, either!)

Typical pasta entrees, and also veal, chicken, beef, and seafood dishes. The lunch menu is $11 for a combination, with a side dish, pasta, and soft drink.

There are desserts as well.

If anyone gives it a shot, please post your impressions here! Looks like they take credit cards, and that they deliver, but no credit cards for delivery.
