Description: Our Story: Liberatore's Ristorante & Catering is a family owned and run group of Maryland-based Italian restaurants with five locations throughout the Greater Baltimore area. With roots in Central Italy & Baltimore's Little Italy, the Liberatore's name has been synonymous with fine Italian food served by family, for some 25 years and counting.Fine Italian Food, Served by FamilyThe first Liberatore's was established in Eldersburg back in 1988; brothers, cousins, and dear family friends later opened locations in Westminster, Timonium, Perry Hall and Bel Air. Each Liberatore's reflects the unique personality and style of its owner, while remaining true to the Liberatore's dedication to authentic Italian cusine. We offer a menu of Italian specialties, as well as Maryland and local favorites and seasonal selections, balanced by Chef's Specials. Many have remarked that Liberatore's offers the best meal they've had since leaving their Nonna’s kitchen, and reviews by critics and locals support this feeling.For Every Occasion, or EverydayTo enter Liberatore's is to start a friendship; many of our customers become regulars, appreciating the special place of Liberatore's in their community. Whether on- or off-site, we truly enjoy helping customers celebrate life — from baby showers, baptisms, and date nights, to marriage, holidays, anniversaries, retirements, and even the end of life. We understand the importance of dining out (not just "eating") with family and friends and the everyday value it adds to those relationships. Affordable Everyday Dining & Fun-Filled Events Drop into any Liberatore's and you'll experience weekday specials and lunch buffets; depending on location, you may also discover specialty brunches, unique wine dinners and other tastings, great football parties, DJs and dancing, live music, or Ladie's Night.

“Delicious Unpretentious Fare with Caring Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

There seem to be Liberatore Restaurants at all points of the compass around Baltimore. Having visited all of them over the years, I can't fault any of them. The Liberty Road location is a particular delight. Recently dined there with a friend and we were more than satisfied. An excellent starter, jumbo shrimp, tomato, and asparagus in a delicate orange sauce was followed by baked swordfish with asparagus. My dining companion was delighted by his Veal Dish with salad. This venue obviously concentrates on the quality, preparation, and presentation of its cuisine. Don't miss it.
Tends to be crowded on the week-ends!

“Liberatore's reminds me of what real good Italian food is all about”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Liberatore's reminds me of what real good Italian food is all about. We used to live less than 3 miles from the Eldersburg restaurant and ate there or had take out 3 to 5 times a week. We loved almost every meal, especially the specials with the Liberatore name such as Veal Liberatore. The named salad is terrific and we are real partial to clams posillipo as an appetizer. The service is fine and Dante, the owner, is always friendly and fun to talk to. We've moved 30-40 minutes away so we can't eat there as often but we go for special occasions and when we have guests. My wife always gets to take home at least half the meal but I pig out. I keep asking Dante to open a restaurant closer to us but he's happy with what his family is doing in other areas. I don't know a better restaurant in Maryland or vicinity.

“Dante Delivers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

Our family visits Liberatore's on a regular basis, especially to enjoy the "specials" and the warm welcome from Dante and his staff. No one is ever a stranger! The meals are freshly prepared and you never leave without feeling full or taking home "leftovers". We especially like the special appetizers and seafood dishes. Of course, the italian dishes are amazing. You can't beat the wine selection or the multitude of desserts. Must try one of Miss Nancy's homemade cakes or pies, but get there early... they go fast!
FAMILY FAV: Breadsticks with garlic dipping sauce
