Over the past three years I've avoided going to Limoncello because of it's reputation as "the most expensive restaurant in Kinshasa." Actually, I found it reasonably priced. The price of pizza is about the same as O'Poeta. Some of the main dishes like veal are pricey, but they're pricey elsewhere in Kinshasa as well. Ok I admit the desserts were way over-priced but the rest of the menu wasn't, really. A $13 salad you'll also find at Eric Kayser for example.
In any case, the service was prompt and friendly. There is a nice garden for kids to run around and play. While Limoncello doesn't exactly cater to families with children (no high chairs provided), there were plenty of families with children, all of whom were happily playing in the garden, not disturbing other diners.
I had a delicious "Salad airgre-douce", my kids had pizza and pasta. There is a large wood burning pizza oven. Friends had butterfly pasta and veal. All was delicious and the total bill for 5 (Including 3 glasses of wine) was $165.
After lunch or dinner, they offer a complimentary limoncello liqueur. If it isn't served to you, ask for it! Delicious and home made.
Street parking is available, and there is VIP parking inside the gates. Overall it was a very nice place.

Friendly service although slow and sometimes hard to contact. Food was pretty good. I would recommend to those with a little disposable cash around.
