This is more or less a go-to place for us, in this case a birthday celebration. Her food is generally good but miy pork chops entree was inedible. Way overcooked and cook tried to hide mistake under a "quart" of agrodolce sauce. Happily, manager comped my entree and offered free desserts.Waittress was fine and caringf but her hlpers were sleepwalkers.

We had dinner last Friday night with 4 adults and 3 young children. We had a 6:00 reservation, and we're promptly seated. Our server was great - last name Tuttle, but I can't remember his first name. He took our drink orders and suggested taking the kiddies orders at the same time. The adults split the chopped salad -!excellent as... More

Went here recently for large group lunch. The focaccia bread is absolutely heavenly to eat. Had the lobster chowder which is very, very good. I have had better, but only on either coast, not in the Midwest. I also had the chicken and goat cheese panini which was very good too. Several in our party had the chicken soup of... More

Walked in without reservations early in the evening and chose to sit in a bar booth. The bartender was also the server, and promptly took our order, with some specific items (extra hot temperature). When the food came out one meal was not hot enough, but the server checked and gladly took it back to be reheated. The second meal... More

the restaurant is nice. The wine is delish. The food is good, but not enough for what you pay. that was disappointing. Maybe that's why they give you unlimited bread and oil before the food come- fill you up. Side note- the "floor boys" had so much scent that I got a migraine. That is not necessary,

Food was good and they were very nice. It was an interesting evening. Our waiter was double sat, so a manager took our drink order. We saw our waiter for a food order. We received someone else's appetizer which was quite yummy. Received our salads. Another manger was now serving us. Our waiter cut his finger. A slight pizza mix... More

This is a big, new loud place that is good for groups. They handled our group of 25 with ease, even though there were 6-8 other large parties going at the same time. The food was good, hot and well prepared. The service was good and timely. I am not a fan of the Carmine-style family dining concept. I feel... More

I've been her many times and have never been disappointed. The food is fantastic but the prices are a bit high. Great date place.

We love going to Biaggi's because it's consistent in service and their food. They have specials and new items but their menu is great. Everyone would find something they like and it will be delicious.

Thank KathleenD50
