First, if you must go visit, don't rely on google or your smartphone to find it...... ....google puts the place in a gated community at the end of the street they're actually on. They're in a strip plaza between a large supermarket (Giant AKA Stop & Shop) and a gym. When you walk in you're underwhelmed immediately by the décor.... More

My husband and I were at the American Bistro last night. We had ordered our food, and we were waiting for our main course. My husband pointed to the wall. I turned around and it was a roach crawling on the wall. I told our waiter and he grabbed a napkins and took it away. We left after that. We... More

The food is almost identical to the food when it was Liberatore's. Their eggplant is authentic and delicious.

We took my parents and found that, since the last time we visited in 2010, they changed the menu, making it a bit more diverse. It has a good Italian menu but they have a fairly comprehensive Indian menu, as well. My dad and husband had Italian and said the spaghetti and meatballs was really good. BTW, the meatballs on...

Went with a bunch of friends to have dinner. Dinner was delish! Great Marsala! Service was decent. Karaoke was a great time. If you have any coupons though, you have to use them at separate tables...only draw back, so a group of 7 was split into 3 tables. Not a huge deal but just an FYI if you have a... More

We have been coming here for years, when it was Liberatore,s, and we are still enjoying the food there. The food is excellent, Cream of Crab...the best! Clams Casino...excellent!! Food is fresh tasty. I do think though they need to renovate a little. The booth seats are a bit worn, But I don't care. The food and service is wonderful.... More

Went with a group for late fathers day lunch. Had a reservation, but still had to wait for our table even though the place was empty. Food took too long to get out to our table. Shrimp salad was horrible, cheese ravioli was inedible, nothing was seasoned. Our portion of the bill wad over $70. Definitely not worth the money.... More
