Friendly and funny host who checked back often. Excellent waitress. We each had a veal dish. We all enjoyed our dish. I had veal parmigiana with a side of linguine. The veal was one of the most tender pieces of veal I ever had and the marinara sauce was outstanding. We will all go again.

29 years and I have never had a bad meal here. The fact that they have been opened 30 years speaks for itself. If you crave Italian this is the place to go.

We go to Lib's quit frequently because the food is superb and the staff is very friendly. It was restaurant week and they were very busy; but they lived up to their expertise. Our meals were delicious and the service was excellent.

Though the food was excellent and the service great, the bar scene ruined the experience. We eventually had to leave as we had to scream across the table to be heard above the noise. It kept getting louder and louder. If I wanted a bar scene I would have gone to a bar, but I wanted a quiet dinner with my friend. At least the Timonium Liberatores keeps the bar and restaurant separate. Much better ambiance. Never again to Eldersburg. Too bad, I really like their food.

Anniversary special. Very very busy. Service not stellar, needed another server. Food delicious, and at such a discount. Veal parm for $13.95 instead of today’s $20.95. Spaghetti and meatballs amazing. Garlic bread delish. We love always, but getting an amazing deal helps!

Dante and his staff are top notch. I'm always hesitant about posting these reviews because selfishly we don't want everyone to know about it :)

My wife and daughters love this place, me too. So much so.......in the middle of me spreading mulch and dirty/sweaty top to bottom that I stopped so we could have dinner as a family.

Dante LOVES what he does and it shows. In a day and age where too many things are done selfishly, this is one restaurant you can go to get away from that feel. Thanks Dante!

I understand the restaurant was extremely busy. The food came out lukewarm at best. Service was extremely slow. We had ask for every drink refill. I had to clear the table to get the dirty dishes out from underneath myself. If you’re going to take that many reservations, maybe should bring on extra staff to accommodate for that size of a group! I would come back for a small group night out, but I would think twice before bringing an important large group.

I was there for Mother’s Day.
I was very disappointed. We were placed at a hitop in the bar. I did have a reservation.
I have been to LIBERATORE’S many times in past and was happy with my experience.
Our service this time was rushed and food was cold and lacked flavor

We go to Liberatore’s every few months for a nice meal out with the family. Dante, the owner, is a man unlike any other, working the room and greeting each guest as if he’s known them for years — many whom he has. He came to our table frequently and played a fun game with our kids that resulted in two complimentary desserts for our next visit (which would have been for this visit if we hadn’t already closed out our check), the goal being to get my kids to open up and have fun while there — and he was a magician with them. He had my quiet daughter chattering away by night’s end. We go for the food, ambience, and to support the fine owner who makes the place special. And, this is where we go for every Christmas Eve dinner, too. A+
