You can close your eyes when choosing a menu item because all of Libertore's food is consistently outstanding.

Though the food was excellent and the service great, the bar scene ruined the experience. We eventually had to leave as we had to scream across the table to be heard above the noise. It kept getting louder and louder. If I wanted a bar scene I would have gone to a bar, but I wanted a quiet dinner with my friend. At least the Timonium Liberatores keeps the bar and restaurant separate. Much better ambiance. Never again to Eldersburg. Too bad, I really like their food.

Anniversary special. Very very busy. Service not stellar, needed another server. Food delicious, and at such a discount. Veal parm for $13.95 instead of today’s $20.95. Spaghetti and meatballs amazing. Garlic bread delish. We love always, but getting an amazing deal helps!

Wonderful experience! I'm not much for vegetables, but the snow peas, green beans and spinach with extra garlic cooked soft as I requested was the best ever! I could have eaten a whole plate of these veggies! Waiter Raul was excellent!

Dante and his staff are top notch. I'm always hesitant about posting these reviews because selfishly we don't want everyone to know about it :)

My wife and daughters love this place, me too. So much so.......in the middle of me spreading mulch and dirty/sweaty top to bottom that I stopped so we could have dinner as a family.

Dante LOVES what he does and it shows. In a day and age where too many things are done selfishly, this is one restaurant you can go to get away from that feel. Thanks Dante!

Good food! However, salads are not included with the entrees. I also don’t like when restaurants charge a plate sharing fee. It’s a lot of food!

I understand the restaurant was extremely busy. The food came out lukewarm at best. Service was extremely slow. We had ask for every drink refill. I had to clear the table to get the dirty dishes out from underneath myself. If you’re going to take that many reservations, maybe should bring on extra staff to accommodate for that size of a group! I would come back for a small group night out, but I would think twice before bringing an important large group.

I was there for Mother’s Day.
I was very disappointed. We were placed at a hitop in the bar. I did have a reservation.
I have been to LIBERATORE’S many times in past and was happy with my experience.
Our service this time was rushed and food was cold and lacked flavor

We go to Liberatore’s every few months for a nice meal out with the family. Dante, the owner, is a man unlike any other, working the room and greeting each guest as if he’s known them for years — many whom he has. He came to our table frequently and played a fun game with our kids that resulted in two complimentary desserts for our next visit (which would have been for this visit if we hadn’t already closed out our check), the goal being to get my kids to open up and have fun while there — and he was a magician with them. He had my quiet daughter chattering away by night’s end. We go for the food, ambience, and to support the fine owner who makes the place special. And, this is where we go for every Christmas Eve dinner, too. A+

Two of us went on a crowded Saturday night with a reservation and had only a short wait. You are always made to feel welcome. The Shrimp Scampi and Salmon Nicola were excellent; the portions large. It was quite noisy because of the crowd.

It’s a great place. The food is always tasty and it pretty much the only Italian place in town. The owner is there a lot and he’s very friendly.

Our waitress was fantastic and the food was great. Although I’ve had good experiences here before, but my most recent visit was one to make me think twice about returning. Not only were we seated in the room clearly designated for large parties, there was one that convened just after we ordered. On top of this already uncomfortable situation, several members of the party commented on how my and my boyfriend’s presence inconvenienced them. This was apparently so much the case that one of the party members approached us and requested that we move tables. I really hope the staff if more considerate to their guests on the future.

The owner Dante was great. Server was above average. Veal was a little tougher then I like. It was a busy Saturday night so food and drinks were a little slower then average. Overall, a nice place with a nice old school Italian ambiance.
