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!

If you want amazing Italian food, great price, and beautiful atmosphere, Biaggi's is the place to go. So many variations to choose from! The potato bread and olive oil is wonderful that they provide to you before your meal. I have been there for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. They also have a full gluten free menu.You... More

1) Our waiter read the specials off the card on the table. Honestly, I don't really care, but it foreshadowed the service and the food. Also, he didn't know what scallions were! 2) The entrees were pitiful. Seriously depressing. The pork chops were WAY overdone and microwaved until dry; possibly warmed in a dehydrator. The mashed potatoes had about two... More

Steaks and Italian are good. The spinach salad is great! I gong think I have had a better spinach salad. I would highly recommend this to anyone liking for a great meal!

Usually when I go to an italian place I'm looking for one thing. Good sauce. This place has an excellent red sauce. But not only is that wonderful, they also offer brick oven pizzas with an array of different toppings and a chicken florentine soup that I could eat everyday. I will definitely visit this place again!

Well, it is a chain and that is what you get, chain food. All our meals were fine (4) but, nothing to write home about. I ordered the Egglant Parmisan, not that tasty, WAY too much food, may have been deep fried as it was a bit greasy. Everyone else enjoyed their food. This place is fine for no surprises,... More

Biaggi's is always consistent and good. At my last meal there I dined with the namesake of LaMarca beans, a regular customer at this restaurant and a frequent visitor to Italy. The chef prepares this dish upon request and it makes a nice compliment to share at lunch.

This was my first stop after 16 hours of travelling to Des Moines via Chicago. This restaurant is nicely laid out and the menu is easy to understand. The food is lovely although the portions are HUGE. I had the Tuna Salad which came with a field of spinach, lovely orange segments and a lovely dressing. This was a great... More
