Limonata gets the little things right. Smiling counter staff take your order and deliver your food to you on pretty plates. The lemonade is strong and not too sweet. Instead of dressing your salad for you, they have three choices of vinaigrette in tall, elegant glass bottles to serve yourself from. We tried the shallot vinaigrette and it was wonderful. Staff comes by to check up on you, and they actually listen to what you have to say. And all the food is delicious – it has that handmade taste, like it was made by someone who really cares.
There are lots more things I want to try. There’s the whole second display case, which is full of sweets (I have my eye especially on the little lemon tarts); they also have really delicious-looking gelato, pastries, and coffee. There’s also a small selection of fancy Italian groceries including cherries in syrup, olive oil, and stunningly beautiful dried pasta. I’m glad I live nearby, because I expect to visit Limonata a lot.
