    Unfortunately, there was a large party in the room across the walkway from us. They raised the shade and they were then a visual distraction ad the stood and ate, in addition to the terrible noise level. It was like being next to a crowed bar.

    Had to wait for my friend so I took a seat at the bar. I had a sour apple martini--very good! The crab dip appetizer was creamy and crabby (if that's a word). Everything was delicious. From the Ceasar salad to the shrimp scampi to the coconut cake. We left there and went across the hall to Liquid Libs. I had the best orange creamcicle drink ever!! The entire night was wonderful and i will definitely be going back!

    My husband and I wanted to find a nice Italian restaurant and Liberatore's did not disappoint. We were early for our reservation but they didn't mind. They sat us immediately and the wait staff was very attentive. The food was great and the ambience was great for our date night. We will definitely be visiting again soon

    I took my lady here for dinner and she loved it. her dish title I don't remember the name but she mentioned it was the best. it consisted of pasta, shrimp, and lobster. I scored major points for picking the location off the main road in a quiet location in timonium. we both recommend this location to others. and magoobys joke house is next door where we went next to laugh off a few calories. both are great spots!

    We had lunch at Liberatore's last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the crab ravioli, and others were pleased with the cajun chicken salad, the veal piccata (even though it's not on the menu), and the New York strip steak sandwich. It was quiet, not very crowded, and the service was a little slower than desired, but still acceptable. I expect we will dine there again.

    Liberatore's was good not great for Mother's Day dinner. I will come back, but it does not live up to the hype of being such a terrific suburban Italian restaurant. Having said that, we enjoyed our dinners (people had soup, salad, pastas, veal and chicken), and indeed, the meals were prepared and presented nicely.

    Enjoyed Mother's Day at Liberatore's with my family. The meal was delicious. I especially enjoyed the Italian Lemon cake. Noise level was ok. Only negative comment was the table placement - we were a party of 7. One of the waiters made us move our seats so that a "larger" diner was in a less obstructive place. It was a little disconcerting - after all we did have a reservation for a table of 7 people and they did know that someone would actually be sitting on the aisle. But other than that incident, all was perfect. Another important feature of this restaurant is that there are NO STEPS! Access for disabled diners is a breeze.

    Not one of those over the top buffets. Omelettes made to order were the high spot, but there was also the usually bacon, hash browns etc. single bowl of fruit that was usually near empty. Desserts were excellent, but it was also a small display that frequently ran out. I came away satisfied, but for 22 bucks, I probably won't go back.

    When we first arrived, our waiter was very pleasant and timely. As time went on, (6:30 PM), your resturant started to get very crowded. Our other party arrive and now there were four of us looking as our menu. Our waiter arrived, took our drink orders, then took our food selections. This is where the evening took a downturn. Our meals were served and I have to mention that the special that evening (Scallop and shrimp over pasta) was horrible at best. The scallops were raw, and the sauce was as watery as it could get. There was no flavoring, just blah. The other dishes were good. Trying to get our waiter's attention went for naught. It appeared to me that he had way too many tables to wait on, and did not have the time to attend to others.

    We frequently eat here on trips to Baltimore and usually are very satisfied with our experience. On this occasion, however, we were disappointed. My wife's pasta with crabmeat was not good at all - the crab had little taste and the pasta was clumped into 1 big lump. We should have sent it back but didn't. I had a swordfish special that was just ok. Other pastas were good as was a steak. The service was ok but seemed hurried and perfunctory. We will certainly return and hope that our next experience will be significantly better.

    A day that my husband came home early from work, we decided to dine out. Open table showed me an available spot within 16 minites and we took it. Since we had to hurry, didnt look at the reviews for how to dress. We dressed casual and the place was packed wd elegantky dressed people (dinner jackets and shoes, long strands of pearls nd beautiful belted dresses). We immediately felt out of place and to make matters worse, our hostess treated us pooorly. I often saw her making pleasant vhit chat with every other table other than ours. When we ordered a anti-pasto she didnt care to explain the different kind of cheeses or the meat. All this most probably because we dressed casual. The food was great though. Would go again after dressing up.

    Having dined there many times (a few New Year Eve's also) I found this evening disappointing. Not busy but the noise level was louder than any other time there. Food & service was good but did not enjoy the evening nearly as much as any other time I had dined there. Will definitely give Liberatore's another chance.

    My girlfriend and her family dined at Liberatore's for Wednesday lunch. We made reservations, but didn't need them since there was ample seating available. Our server was very pleasant and informative. He was knowledgeable of the menu and helped me identify my new favorite moscato (Ruffino). Most of the table got the cream of crab as an app- no complaints. I had the lasagna and it was impeccable. Others had salmon, and alfredo; across the board there were no complaints about the meals. Overall experience was great- awesome family dining experience.

    Liberatore's in Timonium never disappoints. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is wonderful. The staff is impeccable and very respectful. They don't ever pressure you to hurry up and they are not always looking over you shoulder. With that being said, somehow they always seem to be there when you need them. I would recommend Liberatore's to anyone and love to take visitors there to show off this restaurant.

    Our waiter was patient and sweet and we did not feel rushed.The food was very good but not exceptional. Desserts tasted store bought. I would have expected some exceptional home made Italian deserts. Overall, a good experience. My only concern is the noise level. It was difficult to chat over dinner because the restaurant s so loud. Definitely not a place to go for a romantic dinner or a quite conversation.

    Hello, I often forget about this neighborhood gem. We chose this restaurant to meet good friends for dinner. We were greeted when I walked I to the door not only by the hostess but also my favorite waiter, Basil. We were seated immediately. Drink orders were taken. Fresh bread and a delicious olive oil dip was aced in the table. I chose a house salad fit for any foodie along with crabmdat and linguini. It was amazing! Everyone enjoyed their dinners. We only had room for one dessert. We chose a BINDI peach sorbet. You can't get any better sorbet this side of the ocean.. Our waiter Basil was attentive and very professional. We will return soon
