Following the movie at the nearby Esquire Theater, my wife and I dropped in for a meal. It was getting late for full portions, so we split a "Pesto Pasta with Chicken" entrée, and ordered a second house salad as a side order. The homemade Fettuccini pasta was surrounded by the creamy sauce consisting of garlic, parmesan, basil and generous... More

Biagio's is always reliable. The owner (Biagio himself) knows how to make pasta and sauces, and does a fine job, right before your eyes. I like something lighter -- a salad, with a nice-sized slab of tilapia on it. Whatever you get is good, solid Italian food. It's great before a movie at the Esquire.

While I have never eaten a meal here, we stop in regularly to get dessert after a movie or just because. They have all been quite good. It is in the Ludlow Gaslight District, which is very nice. They make the food right in the restaurant, and the garlic smell is somewhat intoxicating.

Five of us ate there. Three of us were dissatisfied. I'd be forgiving if it were just one. I'd be forgiving if it were a mistake in the kitchen--like undercooked steak. (Then I'd consider sending the food back so they could have a chance to get it right.). But these were just three supremely flavorless and uninteresting dishes: seafood al... More

We are from out of town and like to explore new places. This was a local spot in the gaslight district which is very quaint. It was a Tuesday at 9:00 pm but we were net with an extremely friendly warm server . The wine was smooth, and they have a wide selection. I ordered the Greek salad and fettuccine... More

Excellent service, very accommodating for our large party, good food at reasonable prices. A nice neighborhood spot and great for pre or post movie dining.

I have been here before, and have found it to be a lovely Italian restaurant. Feels like a small business type of restaurant; it's very quaint and cozy inside. On this occasion, I took 8 of my out-of-town friends here for lunch. We were a large group, but the restaurant was very kind in accommodating our group. Everyone was satisfied... More

We tried this restaurant on the recommendation of a local shop owner and were not dissappointed. We came in on a Saturday night at about 8:30 and were seated right away although it did take some time for our server to arrive. He was busy finishing up with a large party though so once they cleared out the service was... More

Wonderful casual Italian bistro with the chef right there on the premises making your meal. Delicious classics and some unique twists. Also some non italian offerings for those not crazy about pasta - or meat. Recently I was there for lunch with a large group and the service was very attentive. Everyone raved about their choices which ranged from salads... More

We always eat at Biagio's when we go to the movies in Clifton. We usually share the Boscaiola because the portion is generous. Biagio is a great cook and he has taught his son to follow in his footsteps. The service is always good and the servers very friendly. Of course, the chocolate cake is pretty good too!
