Contemporary Italian
While we have great love and respect for Italian-American culture and all of the beautiful flare it generates, Liberati Osteria & Oenobeers isn't really your typical Italian-American restaurant, but rather a simple and authentic restaurant you'd find in the streets of Rome or maybe in the countryside of Tuscany, Campania or Puglia.

Our founder, Alex Liberati, was born and raised in Rome, as was our chef, Marta Biasotti. At our table, visitors will savor the finest pastas, Italian breads, mozzarella, charcuterie meats and gelato all made in-house according to ancient Italian recipes and traditions. Guests will also discover the only brewery in the world devoted to the exploration of Oenobeers-a beer/wine hybrid with each beer using a different wine grape in its fermentation - presenting a whole new range of flavors, textures and taste for guests to explore.

The food was not to our liking, but that was our problem, not the restaurant. The service was excellent and they gave us a discount. We think maybe they should have a few more traditional Italian dishes, such as pasta. The other thing was the beer/grape wine drinks. Didn’t care for them at all.
But really just a different opinion about the foods served.

This is a beautiful space. The building created a wonderful ambiance. It was not full when we were there so it may be a bit louder if more crowded. We had mushroom risotto, cheese ravioli, gnosche, stewed lamb,and and Italian sausage in marinara. Everything was delish, fresh and full of flavor. Amazing food. We also drank several Oenebeers from the in-house line up. Most were strangely enjoyable and exotically unique. We will definitely go back when the weather is good and sit on the new amazing outdoor patio.

The staff was outstanding from the moment we walked through the door. At the suggestion of our server Jordyn, who was informative and a pleasure throughout the entire meal, we ordered tasters of several Oenobeers to start to introduce ourselves to the unique drink. We then ordered off the Restaurant Week Menu which was another great way to sample the amazing menu. This is one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in Denver. We will highly recommend this place and will definitely be back ourselves.

The appetizers and wine were delicious; however, my main course arrived cold (lamb), and my husband’s was so salty that it was barely edible (monkfish). My friend had the sausage platter and it was fair at best. I had high hopes for this place, but it wasn’t great, unfortunately, especially for the cost.

This place is ok. The decor is nice and it’s really spacious. We went for restaurant week and the food was good. Not fantastic but good. The oenobeers are a little weird. It’s like beer and wine mixed together. I wouldn’t tell someone NOT to go here but I wouldn’t go out of my way to go either. Staff was very nice but slightly absent.

It was one of the worst experiences I’ve had at a restaurant. We had a beer at the bar while waiting for a table which was good. The bartender was really nice. Once we were sat at our table, the waitress started off really nice and outgoing. Then it all went downhill from there. We ordered a drink and our entrees. The waitress said she’d bring us back some bread. 20 minutes went by and we still didn’t have any bread. We finally asked another waitress who helped us right away. The bread ended up being cold. Our waitress still hasn’t been seen since she took our order. Finally, I had to get up and tell someone about the bread. The lady told me it should be somewhat warm but explained how it’s served in Italy. I let her know that it was not warm at all and she seemed offended by it, but brought us out some warm bread. Then the creative director stopped by our table and once again, explained how the bread is served in Italy. He didn’t even ask about our experience so far. Finally our first dish was served from the 3 course menu for Restaurant Week. Our waitress still hasn’t shown back up to our table. We had to ask another waitress again for help, as none of us had our water refilled all night. By this time, we’re probably an hour and a half in or so. Finally, our waitress shows back up with our second dish and apologizes for the delay and is going to give us a 10% discount. Never asked us once if we’d like another drink. Finally, someone else stopped by and we asked to get our third dish to go since we had been there for 2 hours (table of 4). Our waitress brought us all separate tickets without asking so we let her know it would all be on one ticket. She seemed very frustrated by this. She proceeded to pick up plates through the plant next to the table instead of walking around to clean up the table. We finally paid our check and requested a receipt. She came by and through my receipt through the plant again instead of walking around to our table and thanking us.

Went during restaurant week, so menu was probably different than usual but food was either bland, poorly presented, or just unusual (the best thing was the gnocchi, most disappointing thing was the lamb). Way too loud, had to ask them to turn down the music. Took way too long to get our drinks, I saw them sitting on the bar for awhile. We also thought the wine selection was over priced as it ranged from $40 to $100+ a bottle. It is a cool space

We decided to try this place as it was shown on 9 News and were intrigued by the brewery part more than the food. Well to our pleasant surprise the food was outstanding. The Italian food is not your traditional Italian American variety but dishes that are truly Italian. We felt like we were dining in Rome, Florence or Venice from start to finish. We did try a few of their unique grape infused beers and they were different and very tasty. The service was very good and the members of the staff were wonderful. The interior decor was simple but beautiful. We are looking forward to returning here.

We paid $100 for a $20 meal and they offered 'Samples' of two of their brews and turned around and put them on our tab @ $7.50 and $10.50
Not a chance we'll be going back.

The food was less than average. Risotto balls were over salted. The saffron ravioli tasted like tap water that had been sitting out. The lamb dish could have been something out of a can Our waiter did a terrible job describing dishes. I was so excited to finally come here only for it to fall flat.

Polenta and mushroom appetizer could be a winner but someone forgot the salt. Same with the ravioli. The filling just tasted like plain ricotta cheese and made the dough taste raw. Squid ink tortellini was amazing though some said it was too fishy in taste. Charcuterie board was a disappointment in presentation and substance. New restaurant with some kinks to work out still, but a lot of promise.

The spot is nice and the service was good. Unfortunately, the food was not. We had the ravioli and the sauce tasted like it came from a can. The bruschetta was severely lacking in salt and the bread was burnt on the outside and soggy on the inside. The zucchini tasted like grease and way too much balsamic vinegar. The risotto balls tasted like the fried outer layer and you could not taste the risotto. Overall, a bad experience and we will not be going back.

We heard about Liberati from a friend and we were not disappointed. My wife and I went there for Valentines Day and no dining experience could be finer for that occasion. We were welcomed warmly by the hostess and the waitress was very friendly and efficient. She really knows the different beers well and the three she chose were perfect for our tastes. The oenobeer is very unusual and delicious. On top of that, because we made reservations for Valentines Day we were given a free bottle of Prosecco to drink with our dinner. We both chose the lamb for our main dish and for dessert, we shared the hazelnut gelato and the tiramissout, which were both the finest we have had anywhere. Upon leaving, we were given a box of almond cookies as a Valentines Day present and they were also yummy.
This place is not to be missed. The food and service as well as the unique ambience is great. There is free parking right next to the brewery and restaurant, so it is convenient. we are already planning to come back with our daughter for her birthday.

I am sorry to say, the food was very disappointing. Beautiful, but tasteless. The cannoli filling was mushy and bland. We eventually concluded it must have been filled mostly with unseasoned mash potatoes. No fish or seafood taste or texture at all. The polenta cakes with mushrooms were similarly disappointing. Very pretty, but really NO taste. Not sure how that is possible. I love polenta AND mushrooms. We doctored them at the table with olive oil, salt, and pepper to get SOME taste. Fortunately, you do have good olive oil on the table. Then the vegetables came, from which we were hoping for some bright freshness from mint and pepper - but no. The zucchini where an oily, oversalted mess. No mint at all. Undercooked potato chips is my best comparison. Broccolini were ok, but really just red pepper, no flavor balance. The squid ink ravioli was ok, but again, not great. On the plus, it is a lovely space and the service was good. Good wine list, and the signature oenobeers are tasty and interesting. Good bread, too. Il Posto is providing much better high-end, creative Italian food in the neighborhood. I wish you well, but something needs to change in the kitchen.

We had a delicious dinner and great drinks. The only problem I really had was we ordered numerous courses and they all came out at once. The bread came out with our main entree. So I would encourage your servers to work on their coursing/timing better.

Additionally, there aren't any changing tables in your bathroom. I'd suggest adding them!
