Treading the fine line between casual and formal dining, Lemoncello offers refinement with a friendly face at its premises at the Coonara Shopping Centre along Coonara Avenue in West Pennant Hills. The prices are far from those you’d associate with upscale Sydney Italian restaurants, but the food is of a superlative calibre, reflecting the classics of Italian cuisine given a considerate update to fall in line with modern culinary trends. West Pennant Hills residents love Lemoncello’s Italian breakfasts from the innovative cafe menu, available all day, but all bases are covered with lunch available from 11am, including pizza and pasta dishes. Lemoncello’s experienced chefs bring a varied European vibe to the restaurant by preparing a new lunch special with global flavours very week.
In the evenings, Lemoncello offers diners a mouthwatering menu drawing from traditional italian recipes, with the dishes themselves tweaked to to reflect more contemporary culinary trends. Case in point, and rare for an Italian restaurant, the majority of the dishes on Lemoncello’s menu are available gluten-free. More importantly each and every dish at this stylish West Pennant Hills Italian restaurant is made using the freshest ingredients – something that proper Italian cuisine demands. Start with the antipasto misto (Italian cheeses, meats, veggies dips, olives and wood-fired bread) for two, especially if you’re here on a romantic night out, before tackling the huge range of pasta dishes and classic Italian main courses. Finish with a homemade dessert and you’ll understand why Lemoncello is top ranked among western Sydney’s Italian restaurants.
Great selection of dinner options, meal was lovely, the food came out quite fast and the service was exceptional - I would definitely come back!
Tirimisu was the best we have ever had! Pastas were great, although the prawns were over cooked, they were otherwise delicious. Great friendly service. A little bit pricey
Great time. Excellent service. Had the pizza. No complaints. Not sure what else to say. Nice suburban location near treetops. Try it soon I say
We have been to Lemoncellos for breakfast but never for dinner. I took all my family for dinner and they love it. Not one complaint. The staff are lovely and even though it was packed, the service was great too.
We went to Lemoncello for a family dinner on a Friday night. Staff were prompt to receive us and show us to our table and took the orders. Food was served within reasonable time and it was very tasty. Staff were prompt and service was very good. I highly recommend this restaurant.
It was a very busy and hot evening but we were seated quickly with the wait person bringing an ice bucket and glasses to our table almost as soon as we sat down. Our pizza was well topped, not too much so that it became soggy but enough to make it tasty and our Gambari pasta was tasty but could have had a hit more chilli. Very pleasant and good value.
Lemoncello is a very popular local Italian Restaurant in West Pennant Hills. Friendly service and good food. The restaurant has plenty of parking available . Definitely recommend Lemoncello.
Sadly, today we were disappointed with our lunch experience. I had checked if the restaurant was air conditioned but after today it apparently is not ... and the acoustics are terrible which really should be addressed as they must lose a lot of clientele due to this aspect. The waitress was run off her feet and probably hot like the rest of us as the sole fan in the corner did nothing to help - probably due to this the service was abrupt and minimal. We have been here previously a few times for dinner and the food is generally quite good - as it was today.
Great food , atmosphere and staff ! I would definitely recommend Lemoncello as a family restaurant , night out with friends or on a date.
Food and service is excellent. i visited Lemoncello at night. I found the lighting wierd. Dimmed, daylight adjusted lighting. Not exactly a cosy feeling. Got used to it over time.
Have been to Lemoncello quite a few times. Have always enjoyed it, but I rated it down this time as not quite up to the standard of past dining there.
Excellent service and delicious food! We arrived early but were seated immediately, waitress was very knowledgeable about my dietary request (what was / wasn't gluten free) and despite being one of the last in the restaurant we did not feel under any pressure to leave. Highly recommend this restaurant.
For a local restaurant it was very good. My only suggestion would be to put some carpet on the floor as it was very busy and noisy for a thursday evening. Nice service and good food. I will go back
The service was efficient and choice of environment was good. The menu was quite comprehensive and the prices were quite pleasing. The pasta dishes we ordered were aldente in texture, delicious and well portioned. I certainly would come again.
We've been coming here for 8 years!! Delicious food and wine as always!! My favourites are salt & pepper squid and eye fillet steak. Can't go wrong with any of the desserts!!
A tasty meal for three. Meals came out hot and within a reasonable time despite being a busy Saturday night. The desserts were delicious. I will definitely come back for the crème brulee with Persian fairy floss.
My friends and I meet every couple of months and so far this is the best place we have been to. So much so that we have booked again.
Quality control out of the kitchen is a big problem. Prawns in the Spaghetti Marinara were dry and over cooked, the mussels in the Hot Pot were under cooked, the garlic and herb bread serving sizes were all over the place and the Quatro Cheese Gnocci tasted off. The lamb shanks looked good and the pizza was perfect.
Food was fantastic! Will go again and next time will take the family. Loved how there was so many gluten free options to the already large menu.
Generally a good evening with family. Service was of a very good quality and food was enjoyable in most cases. A couple of our party were a little disappointed with their meals.
