The pizza and entrees are the best Italian we've found in Charlotte! The atmosphere is open and welcoming as well as kid friendly. With every dish we try we think the sauces get better. We especially like the Marinara sauce and get extra for dipping. The servers are friendly and very accommodating with special requests. Our kids also like watching... More

Our family enjoyed drinks, food and music on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. There were 8 adults and 2 four year olds. No one duplicated orders, so we had a wide variety to critique and share. The consensus was "we will return"! Definitely try the stuffed mushrooms, Eggplant Rollatini, pizza (so many choices), lasagna and create your own calzones. The cheesecake... More

The eggplant parmigiana is very good, pizza's pretty good too, how they charge for toppings on the pizza - is very confusing.

Service was great. Ambiance was great. Food was only so-so. My husband and I ordered a create -your-own pizza and the crust on my half was burned and the crust on his half was soggy, with what I'm not sure. The sauce was kinda bland also. I was really craving NY style pizza and this did nothing to satisfy that... More

This was our second visit to Libretto's and it won't be our last! The pizza is great but my favorite thing on the menu is the cannoli! They have a lunch special, two slices and a soft drink, which is a good deal and comes out quick. My wife and I really enjoy outdoor seating and Libretto's has a nice... More

Visiting Charlotte we drove by this restaurant and thought we gave it a try. We were a group of five and quickly were seated outside as we had wished. The service was quick and very courteous. With a pretty long list of local and non local brews you will find something that can please. The menu offers a wide variety... More
