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.
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!!
Loved the food especially the salad and pizza and pasta. Lovely friendly and helpful service. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Great for our kids too.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great food , atmosphere and staff ! I would definitely recommend Lemoncello as a family restaurant , night out with friends or on a date.
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
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.
Service was great and the pizza is out of this world! We have been back numerous of times and there always is a consistency in the quality of the food and service!
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.
Excellent service and everyone enjoyed their breakfast. Not always easy keeping a group of eight happy but they did it even with lots of personal adjustments.
Very busy Saturday night. Took a awhile to have our drinks order placed then delivered. Meals came out faster. Very noisy so difficult to god conversation with 10 people in our group. Better for a weekday night I suspect
We loved the special Valentines Day menu!! And we felt very special. We will be back and looking forward to Sunday nights (4th Sunday of the month) for a little music!!
Great atmosphere in outside covered dining area. Food very good and good value for money. Staff were casually friendly but quite efficient, even enjoyed a light hearted joke with our party.
Food was beautiful so was the staff. Only bad thing is that is it very noisy inside and sadly it was booked out outside. Will for sure go there again.
Excellent choice on menu- staff very friendly and they had a nice gap between courses. We have been there before and will definitely be returning.
Great food and great service! We really enjoyed the cafe lunch menu which included all day breakfast and look forward to returning at night try the Italian dinner menu.
Good service and good food. Staff were very attentive and the food was good. The location is great and even though it was busy, we did not feel rushed.
Food and ambience excellent, service very good, acoustics so so as noisy when crowded. Will go back again. THis is to make up the twenty five words.
The food was beautiful and staff pleasant just ask about sauce quantity, way too much for me. Other than that very nice place for a lovely meal.
Good value for money, food are tasty and good service. Highly recommended, a neighborhood gem. Easy parking. Plenty of seatings. The restaurant can cater for big groups.
Friendly staff and good service. The menu had a variety of options wand the food was delicious. Would certainly recommend to anyone who wants good food.
It was an extremely hot day and we were in a corner. Food, service and prices very good. Just needed better air conditioning. Would go again.
Great food but a bit noisy when music on. Made talking difficult. It was an enjoyable evening which we enjoyed. Service was good. We enjoyed ourselves
Good food, good service. Very much worth a visit if you are in the area and like quality italian food. Place can get a little noisy.
This is usually a very good restaurant with excellent quality in food...but on this last visit it was a little under standard food wise....but could have been an off night.......usually very good.
Tasty food with generous portions but quite noisy atmosphere that would impact any idea of a romantic dinner. Good and friendly service. Will return again.
Good food & service, typically Italian, cannot fault it. Everything we ordered tasted delicious. It's a neighbourhood gem. Very reasonably priced, easy parking. HIghly recommended.
Good food and attentative staff. The price is reasonable so you won't feel like you over spent. The restaurant can get quite loud but it creates a good atomosphere.
Service was good however the pizzas were just average this time round. We normally get a great pizza when we go here but maybe the chef was different.n
Have eaten there before and loved it unfortunately $39 steak was rare when asked for medium well and service was terrible. It was busy with only 2 wait staff on so very slow and sadly not attentive.
Nice restaurant. A few orders were mixed up and some not fixed. Overall not bad but could have been a bit better.Need to improve a little.
Food was lovely, however the menu lacked vegetarian options. Well priced and great service, had a wonderful time in a lovely atmosphere and great company
I was disappointed to find that, despite booking weeks ago, we were placed closest to the kitchen. We ended up sitting outside. Food was good.
The service was very attentive. The food was very nice. The restaurant is very loud and would benefit from some acoustic panels on the ceiling.
Food was terrific - However the band was too loud even sitting inside away from them. Conversation almost impossible. Won't return last Sunday of month!
