The food was very tasty, maybe too many calories, and the service was exceptional.

The food here is excellent. We enjoyed everything we tried. Great service, we never had to look for our waiter. He seemed to anticipate our every need. I just wish the tables were a little further apart.

We were very pleased with our anniversary dinner. Lasagna and eggplant parm were tasty and portions were large. Clams casino and antipasto apps were great. Robert, our server, was very attentive and friendly. My new favorite Italian restaurant.

Liberatores has good food and a nice Happy Hour. The restaurant is usually very good but this time the service was not. My husband did not get the dinner he asked for and we could never get the waiter's attention to come over and fix it.

Is Liberatore's like the bar Cheers, where everyone knows your name? Or is it the pub from The World's End, where the patrons are members of a secret alien invasion? Either way, it seemed like everyone in the restaurant knew everyone else the night we visited. Not that it affected the meal, which was very enjoyable. The crab dip appetizer was satisfyingly gooey. The chicken pino and veal saltimbocca were savory and very filling. (We brought half of one home.) Robert our waiter was very attentive and efficient. Overall, comfort Italian food at its best.

I enjoyed the shad special with lovely side vegetables. The service was on the spot even though we dined on a very busy night. Would have preferred a less hectic table location; felt a pressure to leave to accommodate incoming diners. All in all a good experience and we'll be back on a quieter evening.

My meal was very good, as was the service. My only complaint was that I prefer a sweet marinara sauce and I found their sauce somewhat tart.

Went on a Friday night with reservations. Restaurant has an older crowd which isn't unexpected for white tablecloth motif. They serve Italian fare with specials. Our waiter provided excellent service and the pour of wine was generous. Food was good and the ambiance even better

We decided to try Libetatore’s after reading many positive reviews of the restaurant. It did not disappoint. The food was delicious, the staff were patient & knowledgeable, & we had an enjoyable experience. I would definitely recommend Liberatore’s to friends.

Even though it was very busy our table was ready when we arrived. Our server, Julia, was extremely professional and personable. There were four of us in our party and we all enjoyed our dinners immensely. Three of us started with an appetizer sized Caesar salad which was very fresh with just the right amount of dressing and the other had the fried oysters, one of the specials that evening. Our entrees consisted of 3 veal piccata and one salmon dish. The veal was so tender we could cut it with a fork and the sauce had the perfect amount of lemon zing and capers. The salmon arrived in a light broth that was very flavorful and was cooked perfectly. For dessert two of us shared a piece of Oreo cake that was light and not overwhelmingly sweet while another diner greatly enjoyed a slice of cheese cake that was not on the dessert tray, but our server checked the kitchen and found that it was available. We always enjoy this restaurant and can’t wait to return.

We visited on a very busy Saturday and had great service and a great tasting meal. They were very busy and noisy in the main dining room, but had a smaller room opened in the back and we were seated there - nicer and quieter! Food and service did not suffer despite the crowd.

I really enjoyed my food, but my boyfriends food was not very good at all (the chicken alfredo), I would recommend them taking it off the menu or making adjustments because compared to my entree (and the rest of our meal) it was subpar unfortunately.

Was there for a special occasion. A birthday with a special number
Salmon & risotto was excellent
Companion had the veal Sam Boca which they enjoyed very much. Honored guest had veal chop & loved it. Maureen was our server & recommendations on the Libratore salad & tomatoes & moserello was spot on. For the birthday each dessert was brought out & sampled. Homemade cheesecake & terramisue we’re first rate. A fun evening for all

When you are paying $25.00 or more for an entree and ask to substitute steamed spinach for the side of pasta that comes with your meal and are told there is an up charge of $6.50, that is totally ridiculous, especially when you've ordered wine and appetizers as well. I've been to other restaurants where they accomodate such dietary requests at no charge and to me the up charge should at best be nominal and not the full price of a side order. That's really tacky!

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.
