Went with a Groupon. Dinner for 4. 4 glasses of wine 4 entrees and 2 appetizers. No dessert no coffee. Cost without tip would have been about $125. Appetizers were good and entrees were sized well. Quality was good. Surrounding area isn't so good.

We were on our way home from Albany and we couldn't decide what we wanted to eat. So we decided on Italian. We've been here before to celebrate my daughters birthday a few years ago I think the food has gotten better. Service was excellent. Will definitely go back again

It has been about 10 years since I had been here because the last experience was not a good one. My cousin pointed out that he acquired a Groupon and thought the food was outstanding so I figured I would give it a try again. The Groupon which at $65 (with a value up to $154) covered two appetizers, four... More

Visited Libretti's on a Tuesday night. Maybe not the best time for service or good food? We were seated in the back. Waited and waited for our server, when she finally came to our table, she asked if we knew what we wanted to drink and order. OK no wine list but I ordered a white wine. Didn't know there... More

Our first time visiting Libretti's for lunch. The service was superb. The food was scrumptious and since we are entering the Chrstmas season, holiday music was playing. It was a beautiful setting.

This longtime Italian joint for antipasto, pasta & Italian entrees also has karaoke & piano in the lounge. The atmosphere has a touch of elegance, and so does the food.

Great classic old-world southern Italian cuisine. Magnifico! had a sumptuous val dish in a marsala (heavy on the garlic) sauce w/ziti and a chopped salad and antipasto. Great grob! Don't let the neighborhood scare you--well worth the treat!

I was introduced to this place in 1975 when I was a freshman in college. There were stories of 1-2 hour waits which fortunatelyI never had to endure. I work nearby and hit it about once a month for lunch and a coupleof times a yearfor dinner. This still is a great neighborhood Italian place with great foodand service.

Go back in time at this classic NJ Italian restaurant. The menu is wide ranging with so many good things to pick from. Had a sampling of cold and hot appetizers, all tasty. For my main, had the veal saltimbocca which was delicious. When the Sinatra plays, you are living and loving the days gone by.
