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.

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.

The steak was of poor quality. I was
very disappointed. The mashed potatoes and vegetables were not hot. The diet Pepsi was flat. The legroom at the booth was insufficient. The cake portion was small.

The service was very slow. The food was average at best. My wife's dinner was cold when served but she chose not to say anything since we had waited so long to get our meal. Wait staff was friendly. Will not go back.

The food was great, but they sat my husband and I right between two very large parties and it was really difficult for the staff to keep up with everyone. We felt overlooked, and it was very loud.

Always consistently great. Love this restaurant. Every plate is delicious. Drinks are fantastic.
We had Jessica as our primary server who was excellent but we are always impressed with the way other servers such as Chris and the other ladies pitch in to check on us and take a request.
Dining at Liboratore's makes our weekend. Such a lively happy atmosphere. Great for families.

Thank you all,

Stephen & Janet

Always a pleasure to dine here, and tonight was no exception. Great food, but more importantly, a discrete and professional waiter who knew the menu, and served with finesse. We were impressed.

The food was great...we went during restaurant week and chose from the restaurant week menu. The waiter was quick to take our drink order but seemed to take a while to actually get our drinks. I didn't think the place was that busy to cause that wait. Anyway, once we placed our orders, we received our food relatively quickly. Everything tasted great and I would definitely go back.

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.

It was New Year’s Eve so there was a smaller menu being served. Too bad they cut down on the seasonings because I know they can do better. The food was a little to bland for our tastes.

Chicken dish was burnt and still served all chewy and black. Pasta seafood entree special was served with four half cooked shrimp, no sauce and three huge chunks of feta. Clams casino was too bready. Fried calamari and truffled scallops appetizers were good. Service was inconsistent and checking were arbitrarily paced. We will likely not be back.

The appetizers here were very tasty and fairly reasonably priced (definitely try the meatball or grilled brussel sprouts). However, the music selection is like being on an elevator for 45 minutes; very painful. It is hard to justify spending $20-30 on an entree here, when there are better options elsewhere for almost anything. I got a filet mignon, arguably one of the higher-tier entrees on the menu, which consisted of a pretty underwhelming combo of steak, mashed potatoes, and some cooked zucchini, squash, and carrots. My wife got a similarly-priced plate of lobster and shrimp in linguine, and was similarly underwhelmed. If you really want some good Italian, try out Birroteca Bel Air.

Everything was absolutely amazing. I had the lasagna and my boyfriend had the chicken parm. and they were both delicious. We both left extremely full and our waiter was on point with every little detail. We never had empty drinks and he was always in eyes view if we needed anything. We go there at 6:45 PM and were out by 7:20 PM on a Saturday night. 10/10 I would highly recommend!

Wasn't crowded, yet service was awful. They brought the appetizer out at the same time the entrée was served. They took the entrée back till we finished and then brought the entree out. 2 out of 3 meals were cold and it took 12 minutes before the waitress finally came back out and that was only after telling 3 different people we wanted to see her ASAP. They took both meals back and did nothing but reheat it and the veal dish came out nit even that hot but now it was tough. Had been there before and service wasn't that bad but after the lack of attention, after complaints, to our table I will not go back again.

Had dinner at Liberatories with my husband and son on a Sunday. We usually have a good experience dining here, but this day was an exception. We started with appetizers...Fried Calamari was tender but very oily. Bruschetta had a very large mound of tomatoe on top of two pieces of bread. For the main course my husband had the Risotto Balls with Shrimp in a heavy cream sauce. The balls were very dense and tasted as though the breading was old. The sauce that is laid in was extremely thick. I had the Chicken Marsala which had absolutely no taste. It was two pieces of unseasoned chicken laying in a thick Marsala brown sauce, also with no flavor. My son was safe having a pizza. We left the restaurant very disappointed.
