This was our first Valentine’s Day together and I’m so glad we spent it at Liberatore’s. It’s my favorite local restaurant!

It was Valentine's Day, so busier than usual. Even with a crowd, Dante always makes you feel like you are his top priority. Service was excellent, and the limited menu still had a good variety. We'll be back.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. You can dress up or down whatever you prefer. The food and the wait staff is one of the best around including the bartenders, the kitchen staff and of course, Dante, the owner, who will do whatever it takes to make your dining a pleasurable experience. You are always greeted with a huge welcome when you arrive and a thank you when you leave. My husband and I have dined here on several occasions, our latest one being Valentine's Day. Although we did have reservations, it was just as good as any other time of the year and the staff was just as attentive and the food was superb as usual. We have used Liberatore's for their catering services as well and found it to be just as good and will definitely use them again.

Very good service and atmosphere. Prices were reasonable. Appetizer was very good. Main Entrée special (stuffed Lobster tails) were overcooked which detracted from the texture and flavor -- disappointing. Good dessert. Food has generally been better on previous visits.

Liberatore's is comfortably like dining at Cheers! If you live in the neighborhood, you are always going to run into someone you know! The food, the service, the atmosphere is always enjoyable! Thanks again Libs!!!

There was plenty of seating at 5pm on a Friday night but then it got busy quickly after that. I had the eggplant parm which was out of this world. It looked like a lasagna it was stacked so high and you received pasta on the side - Had to take that home as a second meal. The Crab dip was creamy and very tasty. Was very pleased with the meal and the service was fantastic. This was my first visit and will definitely be going again.

Quiet Sunday venting dinner. Requested & had Table next to a Wall for good conversation. All entrees, especially lobster special, salmon and shrimp risotto were very good. South African Cabernet Savignon very good.

Having found Liberatore's about two years ago, we have become regulars. They always greet you like old family friends and they cater to your every need. The food never disappoints and there is always something new to try. The deserts are large with seasonal selections and are as well prepared as the rest of the meal. We've started meeting up with friends there to enjoy a meal and conversation which is easy to do as the background noise allows for everyone to be heard without yelling. If you are tired of chain restaurants and mass market "italian" food and are ready to experience an old school family restaurant with simply flavourful food that you wish you could prepare yourself, then it's time to try Liberatore's.

I've been to every Liberatore's location and I've never been disappointed. I like each of them for different reasons. But, the food is always good.

Liberatore's never disappoints. Dante is a great host in the true Italian tradition, and the wait staff is knowledgeable and anticipates your every need. The food is fantastic, and the specials interesting and well thought out. Dining at Liberatore's makes you want to linger and enjoy long after your meal.....and the cannoli's are fabulous!

Greeting by hostess with Madam and Mr., not "you guys." Very respectful! Food was excellent, filling and just the right amount. Cocktails were rather expensive compared with the food costs. Chef came around to the table to check on service - very nice. Waitress was efficient and very attentive to our needs. A rewarding dinner experience!

Previous experiences with Liberatore's have been really good. This is an exception...and it was very frustrating. We had a confirmed reservation through Open Table and when we arrived we were told they don't check the reservations so we didn't have a table...and it was packed. We waited about 25 minutes to be seated. It took 45 minutes to get water...never from our server but by continually tracking down anyone that would look our way. The same problem with getting our food...took a little more than 1 1/2 hours to finally be served...and one of our meals was prepared incorrectly....with the wrong pasta. When our check finally came...nothing had been done to compensate for the many mishaps of the night...until we suggested it. We were then generously compensated and the owner apologized profusely. This has never been my experience at Liberatore's and I am hopeful it will be better next time.

This restaurant has gone from a tiny hole in the wall luncheon place to a fabulous Italian gem. We have taken many friends here, foreign and domestic. To a person, they agreed about how fantastic it is. The food is always delicious and warm with a variety of options. Once a year, they kick back the prices to 1985. They even sponsor trips to Italy led by the owner of the restaurant, Dante. He's a great host. We always said we didn't need to travel all the way to Little Italy in Baltimore. This owner and his brothers learned from the best in Little Italy and now bring it to the suburbs. You can't go wrong here.

Once we got to a table, service was good. However, the hostess forgot we were there!! And so we did not even get to a table for about 20 minutes, even though we had reservations. Food was EXCELLENT!
