You can use meyer or sanbokan lemons if you are looking for sweeter.

Sometimes time has a mellowing effect on bitter lemons. A pinch of sugar or salt can also work.

The pith of lemons tends to be bitter (the white part between the flesh and the rind). I typically use Meyer lemons in recipes as I find them much sweeter than other varieties.
