Normally this restaurant is fine but our service thIs last time was really bad. The young lady that waited on us had to be on either a major dose of Adderrel or cocaine. She literally took one appetizer order & one drink order at a time. Meaning as soon as one person named the drink or appetizer they wanted she’d run from the table & we had to wait till she came back to tell her what the others wanted for their drinks & appetizers. She almost did the same thing with our main entree order but my husband stopped her & asked her to please stay until everyone placed their order. We also had to ask her four times for a silver set as we were short one when we sat down. Food was very good & normally that is not the kind of service we get. She did at the end tell us she had four or five kids ages 17 to 5 so maybe she simply didn’t have any sleep the night before.

Three of us dined there during Carroll County Restaurant Week. The deal they offered, three courses for $21.18 speaks for itself. The portions served, appetizer, entree and dessert, were their normal portion size. I had the calamari, hot crisp, lightly breaded and perfectly fried, the Chicken Pino, two generous pieces of breast, lightly floured and sauteed, covered with slices of local summer tomato and mozzarella, in a light Marsala sauce with a side of pasta lightly sauced with marinara and finally a smooth, creamy creme brulee. All excellent! The hot , crusty bread was delicious with a full second portion, on request, and served with butter and a tasty EVOO. Our waiter, Zach, was friendly and funny, answered our questions without having to consult with anyone and paced the meal beautifully. The owner dropped by the table to make sure we were satisfied and happy. I have come here for this meal a number of years in a row and it has always been the same as above. This is a first-class outfit in every respect and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a fine Italian meal on any occasion.

The service and hospitality was excellent! However; the waitress accidentally put another table's food on my check. I had my Dad out for Father's Day, didn't especially pay attention, saw the first thing was what we ordered so this must be our check. Well...it was about twice what it should've been, and i didn't realize until i was down the road about 1/2 hr away. :-(

We go there often for the good food but for the friendly service. The owner or manager always comes over and talks to us and asks how we are doing and it is a very personal touch. Went there for my daughters graduation and had lots of family we were treated wonderfully. Food as always was excellent.

The bread was stale and a true Italian restaurant would have warm bread, not stale Italian bread that they probably got from the grocery store nearby. The meats, specifically the veal and salmon were over cooked. Mediocre is the best way I would describe the two entrees with the over cooked items.

I took my Mom and her friend to Liberatore’s for a Mother’s Day lunch. The waitress and staff were so helpful and friendly.

The food was amazing and the recommendations given were spot on. We ordered the Caprese Salad which had the freshest mozzarella cheese and tomatoes that tasted like summertime.

My Mom ordered the shrimp salad sandwich which came with thinly cut french fries that have a Parmesan cheese coating on them. Delicious! The shrimp were large and plentiful in Mom’s sandwich and she said it was really really good. Mom also ordered a bowl of cream of crab soup which was really amazing - at least two cups of soup and plentiful with crab meat. A+++

My Mom’s friend and I both ordered the summer salad which was full of delicious fruits - I added grilled salmon to my salad. So very good.

The best part of all was how pleased and happy my Mom was with her lunch, the ambience, friendship and overall experience at Liberatore’s restaurant.

Thank you so very much - we will return soon 👍👍

We had a pretty good experience. Food was good but on the more expensive side. Server was nice but slow...esp given that it wasn't too crowded. Had to ask for two corrections to meals..which they did but again it took longer than we would have thought.

I met with a dear friend for lunch. Our hostess was cheery and full of smiles. Our table was just what I asked for through the reservation, and menues and the table set and ready for us. Although tempted by the menu choices, we chose the lunch buffet, which offered a vegetarian pasta, pasta with chicken, small salad bar, soup, and dessert. Price was very reasonable. (Under $10 per person. ). Choices were good, limited, but adequate for a buffet. Food was acceptable, although a little bland. The salad bar was small, and only the standard iceberg lettuce type, but fresh and enough toppings to be satisfactory. Several business lunches were inprogress, and they seem to also have easy time of conversation. And enjoyable food. We had an attentive server, and we were not rushed to leave, and so could enjoy our time catching up on the news without feeling pushed to leave. We would choose this restaurant again for a future meeting.

I met two old friends for an annual lunch. The hostess was very accommodating and placed us in an area where we could talk and not be disrupted by the lunch crowd. Zach was our waiter and he did a great job - was always there for us but didn't hover. The food was very good and had a nice presentation. We split a chocolate dessert which was also very good.

I go here every year for a nice New Years Eve dinner. Usually I can’t say enough about this place but I was very disappointed with the menu. I understand that for holidays you don’t get the full menu and I am fine with that. It is not a big deal and we go every year, so no big surprise. However this year I felt like I went to a seafood restraurant rather than an Italian restraurant. I truly dislike seafood. Living in MD there are plenty of seafood restaurants if that is what I wanted but I come to Liberatore’s for their outstanding Italian dishes. I wound up eating a bowl of spaghetti with meat sauce, which I could have made myself. Next year before I make reservations, I will look at the menu. I have learned that nothing is guaranteed. On the positive side, our server was excellent. Very happy and was attentive to our needs. The place was as beautiful as ever and people visited our table to check on us.

We've dined here many times; one of our favourite local restaurants. There is always a good special of the day option, so much so that we have yet to try all the dishes offered on the main menu. The crab cakes are extremely good.
