Average to below average Italian food. I’ve eaten at other LIBERATORE’S restaurants and thought they were better. Not sure what happened at this location.

Went for a family celebration of a high school graduation and truly enjoyed the experience. We needed to move up our dining time by 1/2 hour and were easily accommodated despite having made the reservation for a later time. They added an additional guest to the reservation without any hesitation. Food was delicious, server was attentive and friendly. Despite having a large party (9 guests) the table set up made it easy for guests at each end of the table to talk with each other without shouting. Dining @Liberatore’s was a great way to end a wonderful day.

I frequent at least once a month. If today would have been my first experience then I never would return. Asked for lemon in my water, waitress had to bring lemons after the water was brought, my husband and I said that we would split a garden salad and she brought a salad with a plate for us to split it, bread was as hard as a brick and had to request new bread, the waitress took my husband’s fork when he finished his salad and never brought him another one, even after he asked. He took one off the table next to us, and finally we received our meals, were asked if we wanted cheese, and then had to wait while she serviced three other tables and then brought the cheese...said she couldn’t find it and had to make a new one. Hopefully next time things are like the thousand other times that I’ve been there.

Our server Logan was great. We told him this was our first visit and he took his time with us. He described some of the items on the menu. Off the lunch menu I had the spaghetti and my husband had the chicken wrap. We enjoyed our meal very much. We will definitely return.

Since the renovation the ambience is gone. They are no longer about service but a cattle call. The renovation is a disaster. Acoustics : obnoxiously loud. Cramped quarters and we were a mere afterthought to our server. She had an excuse for all her shortcomings. Before service was best in town. What a shame. I think they took a class in how to ruin a restaurant. We were regulars. We won’t be back. we were there Saturday May 11 2019. I am confident we won’t be back. A real shame.

Good meal but not great as is usually expected. Eaten at Liberatores many times and food is usually excellent. They missed the mark this time. Cream of crab was very runny with little crab it it. Steak was good but had a small piece of plastic in it. Chocolate gelato was not creamy smooth but icy. Service was good as usual. Maybe just an off night as they weren't busy.

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 👍👍
