I enjoy lunch with business associates and friends two to three times a month plus dinners at least twice a month. The Italian cuisine outshines all other Italian restaurants old or new family or chain in our metro area.

If you don't mind middle of the road Italian food, then Biaggi's is fine. It's a chain resturant so that pretty much sums it up

Good food and service although the entrees arrived before we were even half-way finished with our salads.

Let's say that this chain always delivers. As a customer for several years now I have never had a problem. It feels good. I have a table cloth. My food is presented nicely. There is a nice bar along with I must say very sharp looking bathrooms that European city feel which is so hard to find in the Midwest.... More

I like Biaggi's for lunch, even though its a somewhat pricey lunch. The "half and half" is my particular favorite, where for $9.99 you can get your choice of 3 or 4 salads, a couple of soups, a half sandwich or a half pizza. I always get the soups and salads. You can order refills and the soup refills are... More

EVERYTHING is wonderful here... the ambiance, the people, the fireplace, the drinks, the salads, the food, the staff... you CAN NOT GO WRONG. at Biaggi's. I take clients here, my family, and friends. This review could be very long if I outlined all the items I've eaten, or experiences I've had. We've even used the private tasting room for a... More

My girlfriends and I recenty ate at this Biaggi's. There were 7 of us and it was nice that we were seated at a nice round table so we could all see each other and visit. Our waitress was very good. The warm bread and olive oil is wonderful and all of us had a delicious meal. We all ordered... More

Biaggi's is one of my favorite restaurants in West Des Moines. I use it for client lunches and dinners as well as for date nights and special occasions. Prices are reasonable, selection is wide, and food is awesome. The bread is amazing, and everything comes out hot and fast. The steak salad is a favorite of mine, along with ALL... More

I have been to Biaggi's several times and every time I never leave disappointed or hungry. Amazing bread, amazing food, amazing wait staff! The butternut squash ravioli is my favorite though!
