We had dinner for Father’s Day and our experience was top notch. Service was excellent, even though we had three children with us which usually makes servers cringe :) The food was really great…the crab ravioli, clams casino, and chicken Parmesan were particularly excellent! We will absolutely come back again and again!

Unfortunately the restaurant was understaffed tonight which was unfortunate as we were taking a guest out to dinner. When we arrived there was no hostess and the bartender was filling in. There were several couples waiting to be seated. When it was our turn I stated I had a reservation on OpenTable. He told me he didn’t have access to that system.

Our food was okay.

What was upsetting was to see most of the staff wearing no masks. When we asked our bartender who was talking up close he said Pino the owner said it’s optional. We then asked if he was vaccinated and he said no! We asked why that’s okay as he could infect us if he’s not vaccinated and he just responded saying it’s optional. That’s not okay with us and now I feel we can’t return.

i could give this restaurant 5-stars if it wasn't for all the interruptions. you should assume everything is good. if it isn't, i'm sure i would find someone to assist me and my disappointment would be reflected in my tip. next time, i'm posting a DO NOT DISTURB sign on my table.

This was my very first post-COVID in-restaurant experience. I chose it based on my daughter's recommendation -- she's a regular at your restaurant. It was with someone I had not dated previously thus was pretty important to me. We got a great table in a bright sun-lit atrium. There was no ambient noise -- no TV nor Muzak -- to distract us. We had an excellent meal which set the tone for what is starting to look like a permanent relationship. So yeah guys you get an easy 5 stars from both me and my date. More power to ya! We'll be back.

One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Westminster. Their ambiance is very lively and energetic. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. The food however, is fantastic! Their pasta and veal is incredible and all at a reasonable price as well!

Fantastic food, drinks and service. Sat at high top in bar area, Craig our server was delightful, friendly, funny and super accommodating! John the bartender makes fabulous drinks and always has a smile on his face even behind his mask! The hostess is also very friendly and welcoming! This is going to be our new go to restaurant!

The food was over cooked wait staff never returned with more bread as they said they would. Wait staff never refilled water glasses
When I ask fir second glass of wine wait staff took my empty glass but never returned with a new glass of wine if though wait staff walked by our table at least 3 times they never returned with new glade of wine

I will jot their again for long while
Also Resturant wax at 100% capacity and not 50% which state still requires doing the COVID 19 restriction not sure how they are getting away with this. Other restaurants bin area are following rules

We have been going here for the past 2 years as soon as we moved into the area. We have never had a bad meal nor ever not been welcomed. The owner Pino tries to see everyone sat and to ask them if all was well. We used their catering side for a Xmas party and everyone was talking about how good the food was. We normally start with a Manhattan....we make barrel age of our own, so we are not beginners. The Manhattans are excellent. Only gripe no Luxardo cherries. Food is always solid or as Pino says "on point". This is a gem of a place for good Italian food. Fresh and flavorful. They also carry a very good wine list by the glass. The staff are excellent. Enjoy!!

First time back since the lock down. Still as good as ever. Food and service are great. Music was a nice choice for background but a bit too loud. While many restaurants have understandably scaled back their menu, Liberatore's still has many delicious choices. But I do wish they'd bring back their amazing Italian Meatloaf. This is truly our "go to" place.

Hospitality defines the business and the mission of this restaurant. Nicely greeted at the door, no questions regarding the reservations, a suggestions AND a choice of seating, and a server who was cordial and competent. He gave me a candid response to a question about the preparation of an entre and when it arrived at the table it more than met expectations. Good food, well prepared, and a nice environment. I could do with a little less volume and less vocal music. background music sets a mood, but vocals intrude on the table conversation.

My friend had the crabcake and shrimp sandwich w/fries. She said it was very good. I had Chicken Marsala and it was extremely poor quality. The chicken was tough and chewy, and looked like it was not freshly prepared. The side of pasta was only half cooked. Also, my chicken was just barely warm when served, and I asked to have it heated.

It took about 45 minutes from the time we were seated to place our order and receive our food. Even getting my chicken heated took longer than it should have. I asked the waitress to convey to kitchen staff my displeasure with my meal. Upon return, she said she told the staff, and they said they were sorry. Not a word was mentioned about compensating me in some way for the poor quality food - no discount, or free dessert, or a coupon to use if I returned to the restaurant, etc.

Never asked if we wanted dessert.

The food and atmosphere was fantastic! We wanted something slightly more romantic and that's exactly what we got. Dimmer lighting and soft music. Our server was cheerful and friendly. I got a New York strip and my wife ordered the Chicken Chesapeake. It did take longer than expected to get our main course but with this dinner being so soon after the pandemic, it was forgivable. My steak was slightly overcooked (came out more medium well and should have been medium rare) but the steaks flavor was great! My wife loved her Chicken Chesapeake! She also got the peach sangria and loved it. I highly recommend this restaurant!!!

Due to Covid 19, we were made to sit on the same side of a booth, which I found odd. The food was average. I had the chicken dante, which I found too sweet.

Food and service were both excellent as always. Table spacing was more than adequate to provide social distancing. Felt great to be at one of our favorite restaurants and to see Pino the owner after an unwanted hiatus from dining out. Looking forward to going back soon.

First time visit and we were all impressed. Our server Craig made the visit awesome - he was managing what seemed like most of the room and yet he took great care of us and was efficient and warm and engaging at the same time.

The food was excellent - our table had everything from a burger and fries to pasta to chicken dishes. Everything was hot, tasty, and served with a smile. The black and blue pasta dish I had was amazing - and enough to take home for lunch the next day. The Caesar salad and crab soup were also favorites.

For most of the 2 hours my group of 7 women spent, we were the only customers. The food was very good and the service was good, but it took an extraordinarily long time to have our food given to us. This is the second experience I've had eating lunch with you and both times the food took so long to be served. I would not recommend people coming for lunch if they don't have a LONG TIME to wait.

The restaurant part was great. Good thing it wasn’t busy, because they didn’t have our reservation when
we arrived at 5:30.
