"Because they make me feel like I've shopped there forever. And they do the BEST tomato pesto EVER!"
"Well, partially because the coffee is always spot on perfect and the Italian specialties are always well stocked, but most of all it feels like a second living room! Being from Sweden, I'm technically abroad whenever I'm in Cambridge, but when I enter Limoncello I feel that I am even abroader - and that the whole world is a friendly place! That's it. PS. The waitresses are also very cute."

"I love Limoncello - they're so warm, friendly and the cappuccino is fantastic. They're such a credit to the Mill Road area of Cambridge. I really hope they keep going for the next 100 years, if not more. If Limoncello ever - god forbid - leave the area, then I probably will too. If that isn't the mark of a good deli, then I don't know what is."
"Every time I step into Limoncello, I feel like I am on an Italian city break... It's where I go to get some space, enjoy a slow latte, treat myself to lunch (and sometimes a friend if I'm feeling generous enough to share the experience). Me and my hubby visit for 'micro-dates'. Of course the food is all delicious, my favourites being the bosciola olives, the houmous and the pizzas. And of course the staff are lovely. It's my favourite place in Cambridge."
"Limoncello is a place where I always knew I could rush in and get many fresh and tasting food stuff that I could not find elsewhere, be served by the Limoncello team with a passion for service equal to their products, and also take the time to stay in for a cup of great coffee or a great bite to eat. It is special in Cambridge. It is special in the UK. It is my favourite deli in the UK."
"In a nutshell: high quality produce, and friendly staff who provide excellent service. At Limoncello they're knowledgeable about the food they sell, they ensure the customers are happy and are prepared to bring in products on the suggestion of customers. All this serve to create a great atmosphere and large circle of regular customers!"
"They are friendly. The place is clean and they have a huge selection of products. But above everything is the atmosphere: it doesn't seems to be in the cold England anymore."
"The food is delicious and the coffee is superb! The range of Italian edibles, wines and liqors are vast and fresh plus the staff are exceptionally friendly! A definite winner in my books!"
"Limoncello provides a very unique experience to its customers. You could almost say, that is is not just a shop, it is a big community. I am Italian, living in Cambridge and it is hard for me to find the real" product."
