A mix of modern and traditional Italian cuisine, our cozy ristorante has long been a local favorite. Sisters Anna and Maria, originally from the Basilicata region of southern Italy, first opened the doors of Anna Maria Pasteria in 1989.

Beginning at age seven, Anna fell in love with cooking, creating her first plate of Pasta e Fagioli, a simple peasant dish that is now an Italian specialty. Enamored with cuisine and hospitality, Maria followed the family tradition and put her heart into making the best and most heavenly Tiramisu.

After three decades, Anna and her team continue to dedicate themselves to the finest homemade Italian cuisine and service. Each entree is prepared to order with only the finest and freshest ingredients.

Libertad is one of my favorites and it did not disappoint this time! We had the hummus as an appetizer. I was SO impressed. It is not your standard hummus. It was so creamy and delicious....and the 'chips' that come with it are very unique and fresh! We had the chicken flautas. The presentation was beautiful. And the tasted as great as they looked! Libertad was happy to accommodate my friends' allergies. I had the grilled octopus; it was grilled to perfection...so tender. I can't wait to go back!

Roman’s selection of 120 day wet-aged, grass-fed black angus beef cuts are grilled on an Argentinian parrilla at a slightly lower temperature and for a longer period of time – similar to the Patagonian method of barbecuing crafted by Buenos Aires-born celebrity chef, Francis Mallmann.
Argentine cuts are lean, tender and full of flavor.

About the restaurant
Although it's most famous for its electrifying use of chilies and lip-tingling ChengDu peppercorns, the heart of the local cooking style lies in the artful mixing of flavors.

Chengdu cooks excel at combining hot, numbing, sweet, sour, savory, and nutty seasonings to create an astonishing variety of flavors.

Locals like to say, "each dish has its own style; a hundred dishes have a hundred different flavors."

“un-Americanized, small-place street food originated from Szechuan China, awarded as "best heritage restaurant" by Jean Bancheet”

Our Story Begins in Chengdu

"Nearly everything at Da Mao Jia is designed to set your tongue alight with chile heat. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise since the new Bridgeport restaurant specializes in street food from Chengdu, the capital of the Sichuan province of China and home to one of the most ferociously spicy cuisines on the planet."

We came for lunch and we initially were the only party there with only one other group coming in after us. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. It was quiet, clean, well spaced out, and easy to find. The menu is slightly limited so it's not likely a place once would visit often due to lack of choices. Prices were reasonable for about half of the items, the rest I felt was on the expensive side. That being said, the food was delicious as was agreed by our whole party. I only knocked down the value a bit because I thought it was petty to charge for a side of ranch which I asked for my fries. I was not informed there either be a charge and I just think it's ridiculous to charge for something like that. I did feel that it seemed to take a while to get our food after ordering considering we were the only ones there, so I would just throw caution if it would be more busy on what that impact may be but I can't speak from experience since this was my first visit.

This is by far one of my favorite places to dine with my husband and close friends, but I also truly loved dining there alone.

This food was so delicious — unexpected dishes alongside familiar sushi options. The ambiance was perfect for a date night and service was exceptional. Highly recommend.
