Limoncello is a hidden gem in the heart of Kinshasa. It is the best restaurant in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The staff and service were wonderful and the food was 5 Star quality. By Gregg L. Friedman MD

Way too much for meals but your options are really limited. For a $50 buffet I would expect options worthy of the cost.

Had a business dinner at the hotel. We were so pleasantly surprised after walking through the gates the restaurant seems like a oasis in the chaos of the city. The pasta pollo was delicious as was their pizzas. The service was very good and waiters...all spoke fluent english. Pricing is reasonable for Kinshasa and overall a very enjoyable experienceMore

Even as in every restaurant in Kinshasa the price are too expensive, the food is good. I went there already twice. However, they don't know how to do a panna cota (see the picture ).When I asked the waiter his answer was clear it's how...we do it here. Sad fo for an italian dessert.More

Very good and well priced by Kinshasa's exorbitant standards! The food is good to excellent, the service friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is very relaxing - just what you need after a day in the crazy environment of Kinshasa.

Limoncello is a wonderful restaurant for those craving good Italian food. Sometimes the service can be slow on a Saturday night, but it's worth the wait for the pizza and lasagna. The restaurant space is beautiful - both an indoor and outdoor seating area. The...prices are reasonable to other recommended restaurants in town. Just like many places, the drive to find the place is misleading. Watch out for those potholes. But once you enter the complex, it's a lovely restaurant with great staff. They also deliver! Only minor complaint I had was the prices for the dessert. But overall, I enjoy the services at Limoncello.More
