 (Baltimore)·Dined on November 18, 2017

As usual, Liberatore’s is the “go-to” spot in Bel Air.
This one time there was a slight hic-up due to the fact that while using the opentable app, it was not immediately clear that reservations cannot be made for “High-Top” tables (even though we’ve done them in the past). This issue needs to be clarified so there is no confusion as to “when” said tables can or can’t be reserved.
Fortunately, a table became available and this became a non-issue.
I must mention, Adam, which appeared to have taken charge during the slight misunderstanding, did a fabulous job explaining to us the miscommunication and assured the issue would be taken care of.
Otherwise, AS USUAL, the evening was completely phenomenal. Food, Drinks, service..... ALL TOP NOTCH!!

I was so impressed with Liberatore's. I have driven by here countless times but never visited. Do not judge a book by it's cover! I was shocked when we walked in... really pretty and a touch of italy. We were greeted warmly by someone i can only imagine is in an ownership position as well as the employees. We had 5 (yes 5) kids, including a baby with us, and we were treated with the same level of respect as anyone else. Our waiter was knowledgable and kind. The food was amazing and reminiscent of when we lived in Italy years ago. I will absolutely go back and recommend this place (that was apparently very well known to others but somehow not to me after almost 7 years of living in the area) to anyone who inquires. We did not sit at the bar, obviously, but it looked awesome for when i go back with my husband alone... tv's with the sports games on which is perfect for us, and plenty of pub tables. Looking forward to another visit and also looking forward to their amazing bread!

Celebrating scenic and sensory cuisine, Liberatore’s serves up an unforgettable meal. Projecting Italian countryside in downtown Bel Air, diners are in for an international smorgasbord. Tip: Mondays uncork half-prices bottles!

This is our second engagement dinner at Liberatore's in Bel Air and have been very pleased each time. We were welcomed by the management and felt very well taken care of. There were no complaints by anyone in our group with the service or the food. All of the dishes that I saw looked well made and presented. We tried one of the seasonal cocktails and really enjoyed the apple cinnamon martini. This is our favorite in Bel Air!

Very nice restaurant; it's a good all purpose destination for lunch or dinner; first date, rehearsal dinner, birthday, family in town, anniversary, graduation, retirement, etc. It's good for groups too. If you want the white tablecloth upscale restaurant experience without the price that typically involves, this place is for you. They have all the classic Italian dishes but turn out a very good steak too! The steak is aged beef and grilled not broiled. I had the 10oz filet MR and a Cabernet. It was superb. The best part of the menu is that the main entree section ranges in price from $8.95 to $41.95 but the there are great dishes at all levels. The bread alone is worth whatever you pay for an entree and their sides are generous and included. My steak came with grilled veg and potatoes but I got pasta instead of potatoes. The by the glass winelist is broad enough to find a perfect pairing for your meal too! The downsides? First, their coffee is not top tier. Second, the noise level was nearly unbearable which is why the 2/5 star for ambience. We went on a Saturday night and they had live music in the bar. It wasn't good music either which is worse when it's loud. Third, some might feel a dress code is a downside, I really don't. While they'res no formal dress code, that I know of we followed the recommendations posted here and did well. Ok, it's not a place for the grungy look and wearing that look you'd feel very out of place. You would.So don't go that route! On one end you have slacks, shirt, jacket and tie and on the other end you have khakis and a button down long sleeve shirt with a collar (i.e. Think 1985-1992). My date and I dressed somewhere in between those two ends: dress-casual. Nowadays I almost never dress up so I fell back on 85-92; khakis & collar shirt and thought "eh why not?" and put a tie on. My date said she liked seeing me dressed smartly and I gotta admit it was nice not going out in a t-shirt or polo and jeans for a change.

Our all time favorite AUTHENTIC Italian restaurant. Delicious bread....the best. The orecchiette alla formaggio has become an addiction for me. My husband loves the salmon Nicola. Food comes out hot and fresh.
Extremely, well run and organized establishment. Staff is excellent!!!!!

Normally I've had great experiences at Liberatore's. But this was bad. I had said it was a birthday when I made the reservation - in fact it was 2 people in the group. Our waiter said somewhat sarcastically "oh how nice." And he made no attempt to acknowledge the birthdays. Two people in the group were done earlier and so he boxed everything and rushed the people still eating. Our waiter acted like he didn't want to be there and didn't hide it from us. We sat in the bar and it was empty. We usually have this awesome waitress but she wasn't there. This was such a different and terrible experience. And with two birthdays.

Liberatore's delivers quality service and innovative food. I especially liked the fra diavilo sauce as it was lighter and not really heavy. Wait staff works as teams and makes dining a pleasure. Of course white tablecloths cannot be beat!!!!! Where else in our county can you find a white tablecloth restaurant???? Not many. Thank you Liberatore's!!

I gave Liberatore's a five in overall. There is one thing that was annoying. Our party of 5 was seated at a folding table which constantly moved when leaned on. We had to push it back where it belonged while we were seated. Otherwise, it was a very enjoyable evening. I did have a reservation.

Quality of food was very mediocre making it very over priced for its value. We assumed that the offered side salad was part of the meal, not an extra $9.00 ea., The bread was stale, no sides were offered with the entree. Very disappointed.

We go here pretty often, and this visit was extremely disappointing. The service was awful. The server took away my husband's beer twice while it still had some left. Our food took forever to come out. (The couple next to us was seated after us and had finished their meal before our food came.) The bus boy had a white rag wrapped around his neck which he was using to wipe tables with - gross! I hope this is not the new norm for this place.

I'll start by praising the ability to use Open Table to obtain a reservation, ensuring we can have a meal at our go to restaurant in Bel Air. We do tend to eat early, before 6 so seating usually is not an issue.
Our service was wonderful, from David, who we ask for by name now when we dine. Our meals were wonderful and topped it off with a Choc moose dessert.

I was very excited to take my family out for an early Mother's Day dinner. We have dined there many times before with 2-4 people Andrea have even had private events catered upstairs. So we THOUGHT that everything would be GREAT. Boy were we WRONG!! We made a reservation for 6:30pm on a Saturday for 9 people. Our table was immediately ready for us. Drinks came out quick, after that EVERYTHING was DOWNHILL :( We ordered Calamari as an appetizer, they forgot it, then when it did FINALLY come out it was barely lukewarm. Anytime we needed refills on drinks or bread we had to stare down 1 of our TWO servers!!! We then waited over 1 HOUR for our Entrees to come out. Watching every table that sat down around after us not only order but FINISH BEFORE our food even came out!! We did not order anything complicated or cooked well done. I asked to speak to a manager. A woman came by very quickly and said "sorry our owner is in the kitchen trying to help, I'll comp any desserts you order". DESSERTS?!?! We haven't even received our dinner and it is almost 8:30!!! Mind you I had 2 diabetics at my table and 2 children under 6 as wellDuring this time my son fell asleep. It took THAT LONG!!! When the entrees FINALLY did come out, none of them were hot!!! Lukewarm at BEST, just like the appetizer. We 100% WILL NOT be returning with a party over 4 people EVER AGAIN :(

I've been to Liberatore's numerous times, and the food is typically quite good. I tried some different things this time and they were "okay" but not what I've experienced there before. The grilled calamari was good. The spicy pizza I had was okay, and the Exotic Bomba dessert was good but I probably won't try it again. My guests, however, loved their food, crab sandwich, gluten free pena with muscles, shrimp, and clams, and the lasagna. I've had the lasagna before and it was delicious. They also had the coconut creme cake and the 3 Chocolate Mousse, and they both loved them. Service was good.
