If our elaborate two-story design, casual atmosphere, and great service don't tempt you to visit us, our delicious menu will. From traditional homemade lasagna, to our savory lobster tetrazzini, or premium veal saltimbocca, everyone will find a favorite here. Enjoy a great meal while you watch scenes form the Italian Country Side on our Humongous projector screen, largest movie screen of any local restaurant. Or perhaps you prefer to dine in one of our private rooms, perfect for presentation, birthdays, rehearsal diners, anniversaries, etc.

Also, Liberatore's Lounge is a classy place to catch live local music, unwind with a drink (FYI: Best Martini Bar), or catch your favorite game on one of our 7 large screen TVs. While lounging, enjoy our Lite fare Menu or any items from our full menu, but make sure you do not miss our Happy Hour Promotions M-F 4-7 pm.

Whether with family or friends, come and treat yourself to an evening full of flavor and style.

Always love dining at Liberatores Belair. Food is great. Everyone is friendly. Prices are reasonable. Easy to get too, away from the other Belair clustered areas. Usually end up in the Bar area for after dinner cocktail. We will always return. Italo is the Best!

The service was pretty good. My family liked what they ordered. I ordered the NY strip which is usually very good but this time it seemed like it was a sirloin not a strip. Steak was tough and not very flavorful. Maybe just a rookie in the kitchen?

LIBERATORE'S Ristorante & Catering - Bel Air
Responded on March 14, 2019

We're sorry to hear that your NY Strip wasn't as flavorful as it usually is here, Bryan. We will absolutely pass the words along to the chef so that he can ensure all of the staff in the kitchen are preparing plates consistently. We are glad that your family enjoyed themselves, and we hope that we'll see you again next time for a better steak. We feature steak nights every Wednesday!

Our waitress Ronnie was awesome! we had a reservation and our wait time was acceptable, but we were put in a back room with no other patrons behind a partition isolated from the restaurant which did take away from our experience.

We're so pleased to hear that Veronica took great care of you, Cathy! Thank you for joining us. We apologize that you felt separated from the rest of the dining room floor being sat in our overflow seating area. Many of our guest enjoy when they get more privacy during their experience, but if this happens again, please feel free to mention it and we can open up the curtain for you; it's never a problem. Hope to see you next time!

The restaurant was so loud even the waitress messed up our order due to the noise level - you couldn’t have any conversation at the table - plus our food was a bit dried out - t was too late to complain - but was a disappointment coming from out of town and this was recommended

LIBERATORE'S Ristorante & Catering - Bel Air
Responded on March 5, 2019

Hi, Ellen. We're extremely sorry to hear that the noise level was much too loud during your visit. This isn't a typical complaint at all, especially without live music directly playing, but we will definitely look into ways to assist with this so that our guests can enjoy their time without these interruptions. As for the food, please never hesitate to let us know if you don't enjoy a dish. We never hesitate to replace it, and we hope that you'll allow us to show you a better time.

My husband ordered a margarita pizza with meat sauce, which they said they could do meat sauce even though they don’t have pizza toppings listed on the menu. They basically made a margarita pizza and dumped a bunch of saucy meat sauce in the middle of the pizza so it was extremely messy and not really a pizza cooked with meat sauce. I ordered the stuffed Rockfish and asked if they could not put the imperial sauce on it which they said they could do but the fish was very much over cooked and dry. Awful experience

Responded on February 22, 2019

Hey, Jeff. We're so sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the pizza or the rockfish on your recent visit. We will be addressing these concerns with those in our kitchen to ensure that more care is put into preparing each and every dish that is served, even during peak times. We appreciate your feedback, we can't better our operations without it. We hope that you'll give us another shot to provide a more authentic Liberatore's experience. We know we can do better.

We were seated upstairs and we enjoyed the vantage point. Even with the amount of people seated below and in the bar, it is quiet and we were able to hold conversation easily. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The staff was polite and attentive, but not to the point of hovering. My fiance and I were the first couple seated upstairs that evening and one of the staff saw us and dimmed the lights for us to create an intimate setting. We were greeted immediately when we arrived and wished a good night as we left. This is a great place to go for a quiet romantic dinner with a loved one.

Lasagna was good I asked for some extra cheese to sprinkle on top and I asked if they could leave the cheese so I could do it myself and they seem to have an issue with that. The wine was delicious. So was the lasagna.

LIBERATORE'S Ristorante & Catering - Bel Air
Responded on February 18, 2019

We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the lasagna and the wine. Thank you for joining us! We apologize if our staff were hesitant to leave the cheese at the table. Typically, we like our staff to serve the cheese to our guests. So leaving the bowl can appear to others that the staff fell short on this expectation, that was probably the concern. We thank you for joining us, and hope to see you again next time for more great lasagna! Thank you.

Nice little place in a strip mall, so nothing too fancy. Bread was good, appetizer was amazing (Brussel sprouts). Server (Theresa?) was fantastic, super attentive and great conversationalist. Dinners were not so great. Wife got braised short ribs, tasted a bit “old”. My salmon was a little bland. Bed of risotto was fair. Wine selection was pretty good. We ate upstairs which was a little quieter and more cozy than downstairs.

All in all, nice place for casual dining. But if I’m looking for top notch cuisine, probably opt for somewhere else.

We are a fan of Liberatore's Bel Air and have become acquainted with many of the staff. It's one of our "go to" restaurants" simply because we are comfortable there. Two things would greatly improve the guest experience. First, and foremost, meals need to be more flavorful and prepared with greater care. Often items are bland and seem over held (as a former restaurateur I know the difference between "held" and made to order). Secondly, a better selection of modestly priced wines would be nice.

While we had a very good meal and fine service the restaurant was bustling and very noisy to the point that it was almost too hard to carry on a good conversation. In addition to a busy bar crowd we were seated by 2 tables each having children of toddler age (who had a temper tantrum for quite awhile) or approximate ages of 4-5 years who while they were behaved talked in loud voices.

I would not have wanted it to be a night of a first date or celebration of an anniversary or other special occasion.
