Limoncello or limoncino?

Just recently I was asked what the difference was between limoncello and limoncino.

I wasn’t quite sure, as when living in Tuscany I made my own ‘limoncello’, and never saw limoncino for sale. Now here in Yorkshire, I buy Limoncello, thinking that Limoncino was something similar and not the real thing. However, ...
