“Good lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

This was my first visit to Caffe Biaggio. A business acquaintance suggested it. It is a good place for a business lunch even though some of the tables on the banquette are fairly close together.

They have a good albeit limited number of salads, sandwiches and entrees. Moe than enough to satisfy any diner. The food came out fast but we didn't feel rushed at all.
The strawberry chicken salad was a good choice as the pastrami with grilled onions paninni was paired with good tomato basil soup.
I will definitely return to try other items.

“Fine family Italian food with a flare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

This often forgotten little hide away in the midway between St. Paul and Minneapolis is an authentic step back into small town Italy. All four courses we shared were delicious and presented by a most experienced server. We will be back many times.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

My wife said it was the best veggie lasagna she ever had! And the marinara sauce was very authentic and tasty!
This is , by far, the best italian in St. Paul.
After a disappointing meal at Luci, we were happy to find a family run place for authentic food, at very reasonable prices.
Well run, and nice atmosphere too!

“Hidden Gem in St Paul”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

If you want great food served by discreet staff in an unpretentious setting with wonderful ambiance, this is the place. Dined here before seeing a Theatre Pro Rata play just down the street. The food was excellent as was the salad. The waiter offered honest opinions and was very helpful. You feel right at home when you step in the door. They even have reading glasses if your eyes aren't as sharp as they used to be! This place is definitely worth the trip.

Very interesting lunchtime menu with choices for any taste. Can make a meal of anything from antipasto to salad to pasta and more.
