Good Meal & Nice Ambiance

I recently had a solo meal while seated in the bar area and have to say I was impressed. The service was good (maybe a bit on the slow side but there was no rush) and the menu made it hard to make a choice. I really enjoyed the filet and appreciated that it wasn't over-seasoned. The steak flavor... read more

Very good food, excellent service. Acoustics need some help. A very nice touch is they let us bring in our own wine and there is no corkage fee (both Bloomington and Peoria). Location is fine and usually easy to find parking.

We picked this place because (1) it was close by. (2) it was rated #3 in Peoria and (3) the reviews said it had great gluten free food. This place did not disappoint. One of our party ordered gluten free, one ordered the bone in ribeye and the other two ordered pasta dishes. All were great. They also have some... More

I was shocked to see this was rated #1 in peoria for trip advisor. We have way better restaurants that aren't chains. The food was good, but it wasn't extraordinary. The prices were a little much. Service was decent. Nothing was bad, but nothing was exceptional. Alexander's, Sky Harbor, and Rizzis are all independent spots good for date nights. They... More

Our waiter was fun and attentive. I ordered the prime rib sandwich which was delicious. My friend had the egg plant parm and she was very pleased. My other friend had the Alfredo fettuccini which she could not stop talking about. Our waiter filled our coffee and water often and he had a charming personality! Nothing like great food, a... More

It isn't often that a franchise restaurant is rated as the No. 1 dining experience in a community. But that's the case with Biaggi's Ristorante Italiano in Peoria. Located at 2601 West Lake Avenue in the Westlake Shopping Center, it is one of seven Biaggi's in Illinois--others are in Algonquin, Deer Park, Deerfield, Champaign, Bloomington and Naperville. And there also... More

Service is always great and so is the food. My husband and I go a few times a year. I have tried different meals here (I'm a picky eater, usually I get the same thing and stick to it, no matter what the restaurant). I am happy with every meal I've ever had here. Dessert is great too. I have... More
