My favorite restaurant for all occasions, has been since it opened in Timonium.
We were there for a reunion of business friends, used to go there when we were all working together. Food was great then as it still is now.

Four of us had a variety of dishes to celebrate an anniversary. The food was excellent. The service was good but could have been better as the waitress was terrific but had too many tables to serve.

We were having a small family reunion and our server was outstanding. You were not to capacity and since we knew we were going to be there for some time, we explained to our server and she was completely understanding and very attentive. I love to come there for dinner!!!

I received an email saying that my reservation was cancelled by the restaurant. This caused a good deal of confusion with our friends. I emailed, and called to see what was the problem. No answer. They didn't know what happened, how I got the cancellation email??? Good thing I was persistent. With less time to deal we would have eaten elsewhere.

We went for dinner with two other couples and luckily remembered to call ahead to request a round table to make conversation easier since the restaurant can get loud. Our table was ready when we arrived. Our server, Robert, was very welcoming even though we noticed he had about four tables seated around the same time. He slowly went over the specials describing each in detail and promptly took our drink orders. For appetizers the Caesar salads were very crisp and fresh and the Pasta Fagioli soup was delicious. For entrees two of us ordered the red snapper which was one of the specials. It was dredged in egg wash, slightly breaded and lightly pan seared covered in a lemon butter sauce. It was so good that we hated to take the last bite and finish it. We both said we wished we had more even though it was a large piece of fish. The crisp green beans and slices of squash were the perfect accompaniments. The other diners all raved about their meals as well - eggplant parm, 2 veal Marsala, and salmon. Definitely save room for dessert!!! We shared pieces of Oreo cake, coconut cake and cheesecake, all of which were sinfully delightful. We decided to make this our "go to" restaurant when the six of us get together.

We had a predictably delicious and well prepared dinner at Liberatores Tuesday night. The restaurant was fairly crowded and although the wait staff was pleasant and apparently well trained, they were seriously understaffed and the service was painfully slow. Especially at the end when we had to hunt the waiter down to get our bill. We'll return because we've eater there many times and this is the first bad experience that we've had. BUT if it were to happen repeatedly, we would find another favorite local italian restaurant.

Overall very good, especially the Fettuccine Bolognese. It was busy and slightly noisy for a Monday night but it was 1/2 price wine night so it was worth it. The service seemed a bit slower than usual probably because there were several large groups who all seemed to be ordering around the same time. However, we were not bothered by it and we don't want to feel rushed either. Stuffed mushrooms and caesar salad were very good. Veal saltimbocca could use a more flavorful sauce although the meat was very tender and good.

Our group of six ladies who came to Liberatore's to celebrate two birthdays had a very nice afternoon. Coincidentally, it was the day of the solar eclipse, so we left our table to go outside a couple of times, which didn't seem to cause a problem. Our waiter, Luca, was outstanding. He was extremely charming and attentive. (Actually, we chose Liberatore's because we had lunch in July and he was our waiter). We were so impressed with him, we returned. The food was very good, but two ladies ordered crab cake sandwiches which were not as delicious as last time.

Veal paramigiana was a tough breaded piece of meat smothered in tomato saucce- used to be a tender medalion which was terrific. The fried oyster appetizer was dry. The quality of food has really declined at what used to be a special place to dine.

This is a true neighborhood gem
Entres were excellent. Two of us had the blackened halibut...perfectly done.
Tortalini tre salsa is a house specialty... enjoy
Don't forget the cocanut cake or Oreo cake... it is worth the extra exercise

Service was prompt but not pushy. We were allowed to dine instead of eat and rush out. My chicken and my wife's veal were both great. We are both trying to avoid pasta and were given dishes of heathy vegetables as a replacement. The price was reasonable for the quality of food and service. We enjoyed the experience and will return on a regular basis.

Sadly, our lunch here was a letdown from start to finish. We were seated at a corner table facing a wall that was in need of a paint job. After being seated, a woman came to unclear the extra place settings. She reached over us and made quite a production. Our waiter was decent, until our food came and then, he disappeared. We probably would have had dessert, but we were out of time when he finally returned. We made it clear that we wanted our check right away. He brought the check, but then took his time coming back to get our payment. The food was mediocre, considering our bill was over $60. I have had good meals at Liberatores; but this wasn't one of those. I would think twice before going back.

The time before this when we dined here we had to wait an hour+ for our meals to come from the kitchen. We were ready to walk out but one member of our party refused to leave so we just sat and waited. We decided to give the restaurant one more chance since our other visits had been so enjoyable. This time I'm glad to report was once again like the Liberatore's we remembered. The food was delicious and the portions were large enough to bring some home to enjoy a second time. Definitely save room for desserts which weren't very large but large enough to share after a big meal. We had a 7 pm reservation and even with the restaurant very busy, our table was ready and service was excellent. We'll definitely be returning.
