When Mike Libretti opened Libretti's back in 1950, it was a small, but very popular place. Over the course of 60 years and only four owners, Libretti's has expanded and only improved, especially under owner, Danny Lazzara. Now Libretti's boasts elegant dining rooms and two spacious banquet rooms, that he proudly named after his two beautiful daughters, Siena and Alysa.
Danny started with humble beginnings back when he worked for his father as a bus boy in New York, where his family has been in the restaurant business almost 50 years. Danny has used his talents and experience to create his own version of Libretti's without changing the history. After attending the New York Restaurant Culinary School and, honing his skills at Cascabel, where he worked with the famous New York Chef Tom Valenti, he decided he wanted to venture out on his own, alas Libretti's Resturant. The two went together like a hand in glove. Danny and his staff have made Libretti's a second home to many customers.
Whether it is a meal in one of our intimate dining rooms, an event in one of our elegant banquet rooms, or drinks at our fully stocked bar, Libretti's is the place to be.
