Very good food; volumes a bit much!

The service was very good; quickly seated and served, and staff was friendly. The quality of the food was very good. The restaurant seems to have a reputation for large portions; this was in fact the case, and much of the food unfortunately stayed on the plate.

Grew up in Elmira, but just visited Lib's for first time last fall. Loved it. Nice bar, great food, nice atmosphere.

This is an old school Italian restaurant that serves an unbelievably good shrimp scampi. It is lightly fried and then coated in a decadent buttery, garlicy sauce. It is truly the best scampi I have ever had. I always order it with the spinach and peas. The servings are very generous so you will not leave hungry. The menu has... More

I didnt know what to expect when friends said to meet them at Lib's. It is a many-roomed Italian Restaurant which evokes the feel of similar great places in New York City and Chicago, but its in Elmira, NY. The ambiance was authentic and nice, but how is the food? For my appetizer i had one of the top 5... More

This is a great restaurant to get together with friends and has been for many years. The portions are big enough for you to have two more meals from. If you don't like garlic this isn't the restaurant for you. Have never had a bad meal here and love the feeling of family and friends at this restaurant.

Usually I only review places I like. That's because I try not to say anything, instead of saying something negative. Well, if anybody chooses to read this you deserve to know... Well the parking lot is almost a block away. You have to walk under a bridge, which btw was a train track. I mention this because the Train happened... More

We have lived in the area for some time now and have heard about Lib's-we went last night and don't know if we will return-the portions were quite generous, the menu was extensive and the service was somewhat hurried (not the servers fault) the place was loaded. The lighting was so low that it is hard to read the menu... More

It's a treat to find Lib's and wander into an old-time supper club. The food is Italian/American, very good, and OMG plentiful. For $17 one of us had veal parm (with an immense salad and huge spaghetti side and bread) that had to be the size of an iPad (NOT the mini) floating in at least a cup-and-a-half of sauce.... More

Lived in area for years. This was our first visit. The food is excellent. The portions are humongous. The spaghetti was cooked perfectly. The meatballs were great. Be careful with the home-made sausage. It is chili pepper hot but very good. The chicken dishes are terrific and enough for two meals. The cheese garlic bread was great. Desserts are great.... More
