    Don't let the outside image of Liberatore's in Bel Air fool you....It's in the middle of a small strip of stores and doesn't look very inviting but once you walk in the door you realize how nice it really is. We were very impressed with our whole experience and we're already planning another dinner there next month. The service was excellent and the food was also excellent. I have no complaints. FYI-The crab cakes are outstanding.

  • Anniversary Dinner = never again
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 7/8/2014
    I took my wife to Anniversary dinner on a Tuesday night. The food was sub-par. I ordered my regular black and blue penne and chicken and it was bland and luke warm. My wife ordered a rockfish special at a premium price which she said she enjoyed. Our server was non-attentive, i had to ask for two waters twice, parmasean cheese twice while my dish got cold on the table, our drinks sat empty on more than one occasion... After finishing our meals my wife ordered dessert and I had a coffee. To our horror, my wife discovered half way through her cheesecake that there was a dead fly embedded in the crust. When we brought it to the attention of Italo, the manager he acted nonchalant and comped the 1 dessert and two drinks. Never again

    The hostess was seating everyone in the first dining area making it very busy and loud. There was another room behind the first room and seating upstairs not being used. The room was crowded and you could not hear yourself talk. There was also a problem with the service. It took too long for a waiter to come over and get the drink order. For some reason our waiter would not come back to our table. We tried several times to get his attention. After about 5 minutes I had to go to the hostess and ask for water for our table. The food was very good.

    The food was absolutely delicious from beginning to end. Our waitress was extremely busy, but she still managed to refill our drinks as soon as the empty glass touched the table. It was very loud, but I'm going to chalk that up to the fact that it was a Saturday night AND Mother's Day weekend to boot. Will definitely go again, maybe on a weeknight with hubby when it may be a bit quieter.

    Dining at Liberatore's is always a pleasant experience. This last experience was no exception. We took a friend who had not previously been to this restaurant and we had a great evening of conversation and excellent fare. The wait staff was friendly and attentive but not intrusive and the food was delicious.

    Dined on 2/15/2014
    I reserved a booth the day after Valentine's Day for a romantic evening. The place was packed as expected but not to noisy. The wine and service was excellent. My steak was under cooked, but the waiter graciously returned it to the kitchen. After the steak returned, it was excellent. My guest's meal was excellent. The booth was definitely the way to go. The tables were packed close together with lots of server traffic between. After finishing our meal we moved to the bar where we enjoyed live Jazz with additional glasses of wine. The music and ambience at the bar was most enjoyable.

    You can count on good service and good Italian food at Liberatore's in Bel Air. Don't be fooled by the location, the restaurant is beautiful and once inside you'd never guess you were in a strip mall. The bar atmosphere is also very comfortable and casual for drinks with friends or simply a drink while waiting for a table.

  • V Day dinner
    2diners
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    There's a special menu for Valentine's Day which has many choices. My linguine with crab and shrimp in an old Bay marinara was delicious. And there was plenty to take home. My husband thought his salmon was a bit overcooked but was still flavorful and fresh. As usual we shared the lover's salad which is a favorite of ours. The coconut cake is one of the best I've had. I think it's Liberatore's best dessert. The tiramisu was dusted with chocolate so it didn't have the coffee taste that we love so it's not one of our favorite tiramisu's. It's tasty, but not what we expected in a tiramisu. All in all, the dinner more than met expectations. On Valentine's Day every lady gets a red or white carnation - which is a lovely touch.

    Had to send chicken dish back for reheating. It was served cold. Menu description said lightly breaded yet there was so much breading that it soaked up oils and did not taste as good as it could have been. I regret ed ordering that dish. Others in my group were satisfied with their meal.

    I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. It takes me back to a time as a kid in New York where you walked into a family owned Italian restaurant and you were truly treated as family. My husband and I would get off from work on a Friday. Like most work weeks your tired. However, when you pull on the parking lot of Liberatore's, we become more energized. You are greeted by Uncle Danny and his family. A hug or a handshake is not a formality with them.........it's genuine. I enjoy watching so many happy couples and large groups come in for a private party or a large family dinner. Liberatore's is my #1. I hope they remain there a long long time.

    We were very glad we made reservations because the restaurant was packed. We were seated upstairs which was a more intimate setting than in the main dining room. However, the noise level was still quite high. The imperial stuffed rockfish was fantastic. My husband got the linguine with crabmeat which is always good. Service was top notch. Our only complaint was the noise level which made conversation awkward.

    FoodNut
    Dined on 11/27/2013
    I have gone to this location for years now and have watched the business drop as one chain after another opens up around it over the last couple of years. It is a shame that people don't put more value on a local family restaurant that serves the finest food in the area. Their food is always excellent and the service is always of the highest level. They have an excellent wine list that accompanies their offerings perfectly. Their signature Veal Liberatore never disappoints. If you have passed this restaurant by for the many greasy mass produced chain restaurant meals in close proximity, then it is time to give them a try. You won't regret it for sure. Bon Apetit.

    I was taken promptly to my table in the absence of my date, and well-served while I waited for her arrival. The salads, appetizers, and entree's were great. The only snafu was a frozen pumpkin cheesecake, but the server offered me a smaller piece of anything else with a box of thawing cheesecake for later, in lieu of my original request. Great service recovery there! As always, Liberatore's was predictably excellent, although the live karaoke wafting upstairs was a bit loud for my taste. The people in the bar seemed to enjoy it however!

    We recently celebrated our parents' 50th wedding anniversary at Liberatores in Bel Air, MD. It was a great evening from the time we arrived until we had to head home. Our server, Steven, was warm, friendly, very professional and conscientious of the special needs of a couple in our party. The food was outstanding and we left having eaten too much because it was all so good! Thank you for a wonderful family dining experience.

    Our server was energetic. Food was hot, tasty and plentiful. Only concern was that we were seated upstairs right next to a party of about 25. LOUD and OBNOXIOUS!! I love the openness of the venue, but sometimes you want a quiet cozy corner booth for a romantic dinner, maybe this isn't the right "Italian" resturant to go to in Bel Air for that kind of Saturday night out with someone special. But will keep them in mind the next time I get together with my Soccer Hooligan Buddies if we need a place to go blow some steam off and get some grubb.
