I've eaten at many restaurants; the white clam sauce was the worse experience I ever had, the pasta was mushy and the sauce was like dish water . . . very disappointed . . . you must use garlic, parsley and pepper and not just rubbery clams . . . never again

As soon as we walked in the owner greeted us. He was so welcoming and really made us feel special. He told us about the specials and even sent us a complementary appetizer. We will definitely be back.

Everything about our experience at Liberatore's was excellent. Our server, Nancy, was a pro at getting orders correct. The food was outstanding and portions were plentiful. Nancy makes the desserts, and the selection and taste were fabulous, especially the coconut cake. Bussers took our leftovers and boxed them for us, too. We'll be back!

My brother and his wife visited us from New Jersey on Valentines day. We had made reservations at Liberatore's for we had been there before and wanted our guests to have a wonderful dining experience. Not only did they enjoy everything from the drinks to the great food, my wife and I did too!! Whenever we wish to amaze our out-of-town guests for a dining experience to be remembered, Liberatore's will be on the dining agenda!!

We were 6, including a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old, and we didn’t think to ask for a booth. No worries; our waitress was excellent, making sure our order went in in phases to reduce any wait time. Both little ones and the adults loved the calamari, shared orders of both the fried and grilled. “The veal carciofi could have used just a sprinkle of parsley” noted two of the adults. The salmon was cooked to perfection, and the accompanying risotto was just superb. Our waitress did admit the wine list could be a bit confusing, organized by how it could be purchased, i.e. only by bottle, only by glass, by glass or bottle, house; had it been more extensive, maybe that would have been a problem, but it was no big deal. We can recommend a bottle of the house Chianti. Even the espresso was good,

The 10 of us were stuffed in the bar. Thought a week night would be less crowded, but the dining room was totalling full from a funeral gathering. The service was excellent, but the noise level was deafening. Really prefer the lunch buffet.

Asked for squash with onions and garlic as an appetizer. It was outstanding! It was seasoned just right, with light salt and pepper! The veal parmigiana and the chicken special with rice and shrimp with a wonderful sauce were both outstanding!

Always a joyful time to gather with friends and family @ Dante's in Eldersburg. Even though the reservation did not show on his system with Opentable we still got top notch attention to be seated in a very crowded, busy holiday rush. Thanks Dante, once again!!

Our group of 7 ate here on a slow Tuesday in December. We were seated right away and our wait staff was very good and attentive. I had the Tre Fungi Risotto with shrimp and it was very salty. Some others in our group commented it wasn't as good as normal.
