If our elaborate two-story design, casual atmosphere, and great service don't tempt you to visit us, our delicious menu will. From traditional homemade lasagna, to our savory lobster tetrazzini, or premium veal saltimbocca, everyone will find a favorite here. Enjoy a great meal while you watch scenes form the Italian Country Side on our Humongous projector screen, largest movie screen of any local restaurant. Or perhaps you prefer to dine in one of our private rooms, perfect for presentation, birthdays, rehearsal diners, anniversaries, etc.

Also, Liberatore's Lounge is a classy place to catch live local music, unwind with a drink (FYI: Best Martini Bar), or catch your favorite game on one of our 7 large screen TVs. While lounging, enjoy our Lite fare Menu or any items from our full menu, but make sure you do not miss our Happy Hour Promotions M-F 4-7 pm.

Whether with family or friends, come and treat yourself to an evening full of flavor and style.

Food was just OK and did not satisfy my Italian food craving. Bread was average and pasta price points vs quality left me disappointed

Not sure if it was an off night, but the food quality was no where near the Liberatore's prior to COVID-19.

You can't go wrong at Lib's. The crab cocktail starter was awesome. My veal saltimbocca was perfectly prepared. The wine list is not overwhelming and it's fairly priced. Italo and his team do a great job. I can't wait to see the COVID restrictions lifted and to see Liberatore's bustling again.

We were a party of 5 for dinner. The server was very good; we've always received excellent service at this restaurant. The food was good - the appetizer, a type of dynamite shrimp dish was tasty and nicely seasoned, but the shrimp were a bit overdone and leathery. The entrees were good. The value was okay, though it would be nice if they offered a small side salad as a side. Overall, the experience was good, and we'll be back.

Birthday dinner for a friend with 5 of us attending. They are doing an excellent job with COVID-19 compliance and the service was outstanding as always. Was only slightly disappointed with the quality of the food we ordered. Overall, we love going there and look forward to going again!

It was quiet, as there were not many people there due to 50% capacity guidelines. Food was great, as always. Was just disappointed there was no dipping sauce (olive oil) for the bread, but that's probably a COVID consequence.

Disappointing service - was better when I decided to make it self service and get whatever I needed myself. The food wasn’t great either. So disappointed as I’ve been going to Liberatores for over 2 decades.

Very disappointed. Food had no flavor, my veal was like shoe leather and was served with penne' paste. Absolutely one of the worse meals I ever had. An outrage at $110 for two people. I can get better food for two at Cracker Barrel for $25.

My husband and I planned a celebration dinner at Liberatore's and made a reservation for 7 PM on a Saturday. The place was mobbed, and we were told there was at least a 30 minute wait, even though we had a reservation. I saw them take 2 different couples ahead of us who did not have reservations. We couldn't even get a seat at the bar to wait, it was so crowded. Finally, we were seated, but our waiter was completely overwhelmed, and we had to wait quite a while for everything. I'm sure he did the best he could, but they were definitely understaffed. The food was delicious, so that made up for a lot. We would go back again, but maybe pick a different day and time. I just don't understand why Liberatore's confirmed our reservation; they could have offered a later time if they were overbooked.

Food was excellent. Server was very attentive and accommodating. Parking was horrendous. My husband dropped me off at the door and could not find a open parking space. He ended up parking behind the building. The line to be seated was just about out the door. I had a reservation and still had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated. It seemed there were about 4 very large parties going on at the same time. They each were 8-12 per party. So parties that were 4 or less were waiting longer to be seated. I don’t know if it had to do with it being restaurant week? Or if that is the norm on a Saturday night at 6:30? If that is the norm then I would recommend having an earlier dinner reservation (5:00)? Or a late dinner (9:00)? You might have a better chance to get a parking spot without having to walk from behind the building.

It was restaurant week and had a reservation at 6:30pm: didn’t get seated until 30-40 minutes later ordered the restaurant week offerings received the salad and waited over an hour for the rest of the food which never came. We were not the only group that were waiting for our meals it was as if the cooks were MIA. Our friends and I continued to wait and spoke to the manager which said gives us another 15 minutes the kitchen is backed up and we waited but at this point we were all frustrated and starving. Asked for the check and left while seeing other tables that were seated before us still waiting on food as well. Very poor planning on the restaurant and did not leave a good impression for us to come back.

Liberatore's should work to enhance its stature as a place to dine rather than eat. I always say if you want to eat, go to McDonald's. When you're first met by the young lady at the desk, it should be "Good evening, welcome to Liberatore's" instead of "Hi guys. Got a reservation?" The food is good. They still struggle a little with the risotto that is more dry and mealy than creamy. Overall, though, not bad.

Pasta needed to be cooked a little longer just for it to have been al dente. Took too long just to get drinks ordered so when waitress finally came we ordered all at once (drinks, appetizers and dinner). Otherwise, it was a nice dinner.
