Out in Sydney’s wild west there’s a little gem of an Italian restaurant to be found tucked up in the West Pennant Hills.

Lemoncello serves modern Italian cuisine, making use of time-honoured recipes tailored to suit the contemporary palate. A great wine list is a must for any Italian restaurant worth its rock salt, and Lemoncello delivers with aplomb.

The Food was excellent. The service was prompt. The staff were friendly and attentive. Servings were generous and we did it need entre. Would recommend this restaurant.
Excellent lunch. Wait staff were very friendly and attentive. We lingered over dessert and cappuccino without feeling pressure to leave even after the bill was presented. One of my favorite restaurants in the city.
Very attentive staff and great italian choices make this a restaurant worth finding - tucked out of the way in West Pennant Hills. Get there!
