My work place planned a family style lunch at Biaggi's. With a severe dairy allergy, I was dreading the 'famiily style' course that had been prearranged. I had another meeting scheduled that day though and didn't think I'd arrive in time, and planned to just grab something else on the way back to the office. My first meeting finished early... More

We have eaten at Biaggi's many times over the years and generally been quite satisfied. Today we had a reservation at 6 PM for a booth for 3 people. When we arrived we were greeted nicely and taken to a booth, but it was right next to the server station where water is poured, dishes are taken after use etc.... More

I know they are a chain, but this particular locations staff made you feel like you were the owners guest. Myself and three others ate here for lunch last Tuesday. We all had Panini's in some form. Mine was smoked turkey and avocado. The bread was wonderful as was the heart of the sandwich. The others all had the "Half... More

When Biaggi's opened I loved it. The food was really good. I just realized how much that changed. We ordered the special. It took quite a while until we have had it at our table. The food was almost cold, the small piece of fish has had very dry consistence. It looked like warmed up several times? Yee it was... More

It was late in the evening after a 35 mile bicycle ride in the rain and cold and I really needed a pasta boost to revive me I had never heard of Biaggi's before but it looked like a nice chain restaurant so my nephew and I decided to eat here. We got immediate seating near the bar area and... More

Great food and great service. We had a late dinner meeting with another family and every dish was enjoyable. We stayed late talking after we paid the bill and the waitress continued to come back every so often and fill our drinks and check on us. That usually doesn't happen in most restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place for... More

I've been going to Biaggi's for 9 years, pretty often. I've always thought, "these people really know how to cook!", "but it isnt that healthy unless you get a big vegetable salad". That's because they emphasize pasta, bread, cheese and meats. I tend toward "nutritarian/ vegan". The decor is elegant. It makes you feel special even on an ordinary day.... More

We've been here many times, as a couple and with extended family. Although the setting appears formal.., beautiful dark wood, linen table cloths, the service is friendly, down-to-earth and attentive. I was especially impressed with waitresses who have addressed young children personally. Our favorite dishes are the shrimp and crab cannelloni and the capellini di mar, but everything we've had...

For the price of the food, I wasnt impressed. I got soup and salad. Those things are pretty hard to mess up but they both tasted bad. Service was fine. I like olive garden way better.
