In the Ancient Naples

In the heart of the ancient Neapolis, near the Decumano Maggiore recognized as UNESCO World Heritage, Limoné is much more than a simple factory of liqueurs: it wants to follow the traditions handed down from generation to generation in order to discover the pleasure of sharing together the traditional and genuine flavours and aromas.

A firm able to bring the traditions in the place where they were born: this was the project when Limoné started its activities. The idea is still the same. Limoné is the place where one can still find genuine and handmade food production as well as the flavours of homemade liqueurs.

Limoncello, creams, rucolino (liqueur with arugula), finocchietto (liqueur with wild fennel), and babà (Napolitan cake), are just some of the products which have given notoriety to our brand. The secret of our success is based on the handmade production as well as on the traditional recipes.

Limoné achieved remarkable results through exceptional attention to the quality of its production, which is world-renowned. This is the reason why Limoné is recommended by the most famous Naples guidebooks (Routard, Lonely Planet, Hachette, Dumont) which strongly suggest to visit our small factory. Limoné started out producing few liqueurs, then inspired by the Neapolitan handmade tradition it introduced other products.

The most famous liqueur is the limoncello, which is prepared following an ancient family recipe.

Our limoncello is made using a particular green lemon called “verdello” with excellent digestive proprieties and which is grown with no chemicals. Each lemon is peeled by hand as it was an homemade process. All the lemons come from Campi Flegrei and the harvest is without chemicals or phytopharmaceutical products.

Our peculiarity is that Limoné not only does produce liqueurs, but also a variety of products based on lemon: pasta with lemon, lemon grappa, lemon olive oil, to name but a few.

During the visit of our factory we explain to our clients the whole productive process and they often feel at home.

Limoné is also a sort of archeological museum: inside our factory there are a well of IV century B.C. which was part of the Greek aqueduct as well as a wall in opus reticulatum of Dioscuri‘s Temple. The liqueurs tasting and the archeological visit are an incredible surprise for our clients.

Finally, the key to our success was our clients affection. They increased year by year recognizing the efforts of our small enterprise. Many clients come back bringing their friends, and they act as small Limoné promoters. Many of them became very expert guides regarding liqueurs production.

We were born in 1996 as a small factory, but nowadays we are an unmissable stop-over during the city historical center tour. The creativity of the young managers tends to continuously find new synthesis between tradition and innovation.

Our motto has always been:

Conservare il sapore è conservare il sapere / Preserve a flavor means preserving knowledge.

Friendly staff and great products for a good price
We came by the shop and stopped to get some lemon noodles. The staff was very friendly and even gave us a quick demonstration of the production process. Afterwards we were invited to taste the Limoncello and the Crema di Limoncello. Prices are very reasonable, will definitely come back on our next visit in Naples.

Everything you want to know about lemons
This is the home and producer of Limoncello. It's an Italian lemon liqueur made mainly in southern Italy, especially around the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrentine Peninsula, the coast of Amalfi, and some of the offshore islands. I had tried it before on the French Riviera in the town of Menton east of Nice. A charming hostess offered us a taste which was stronger and not as sweet as what I remembered. The staff here is very friendly, inviting you to try other lemon products. Ask for olio “al limone” to take home with you as it's great for cooking or salad dressing. I also recommend their different liqueurs such as ones from apples or licorice. Naturally, we didn't leave without some of the Limoncello, taking a couple bottles with us to the U.S. as it isn't easy to find there.
