Local family favorite Macayo’s Mexican Kitchen shuttered its westside location earlier this year and in a short turnaround, a self-described upscale Italian restaurant will take its place later this week.
Inspired by the southwestern coastal town of Amalfi, Italy, Limoncello Fresh Italian Kitchen will launch on November 20, introducing its nightly opening hours of 4 to 10 p.m.
Filling a generous 8,176-square-foot space at 8245 W. Sahara Avenue, close to Cimmaron Road, the landlocked restaurant cryptically hints “every seat will highlight an ocean view.”
Still to share a full menu, future diners are promised fresh seafood, hand-picked by customers, plus specialty dishes and oven-fired pizza.
Named after the famed limoncello liqueur produced in the Amalfi region, the building was bought by Well Done LLC late last year. Listed as a manager of the new company is Giuseppe Consarino, general manager of the Il Fornaio Italian restaurant at the New York-New York on the Strip.
