Anytime I'm in Clifton, I swing by here for a cannoli for dessert. Good quality food and romantic small business environment.

This is a true bistro where the food is made with love and the owner welcomes his guests. I love this place and it helps Clifton feel the way it feels...genuine. Will always love the Alfredo and anything with shrimp. Best Caesar salad in the area. Biagio's smile always adds warmth to the dining experience and the place has lots... More

Very nice Italian restaurant in the area of Clifton. Very limited menu of food, but what it does serve is very good (great sauce). Don't expect Ravioli type of pasta; dont remember if there was lasagna. It seemed to be dishes that could be quickly prepared. Desserts seemed intriguing.

I have eaten at Biago's a few times, it is always great. A friend and I ate there after a movie at the Esquire, the food was excellent. Service was also excellent, our entrees were brought to the table steaming hot. And the prices are very reasonable.

Having not being there before, I was very impressed that the chef was very accessable! Chef Biago is very soft spoken but interested in everything you say..I had the chicken alfredo and it was more food than I could handle so my brother in law and I shared the order! It was so delicious I cant wait to go back..I... More

When you first walk into the Bistro the aroma and atmosphere transcends you to Italy. We had a group of 15 on a week night. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. There were several specials and the server let us know ahead of time that there was a limited quantity of one of the specials. The chef was... More

Biago's offers excellent soups, salads, sandwiches and pastas. My personal favorites are the tomato basil soup, turkey sandwiches on their own French bread, any of the alfredo pastas and the desserts! What can I say about the desserts? There's a full case of them, from several cakes to several cream pies--all delectable and highly recommended, Service can be a little... More

I have been here twice (too often) - the first time after a movie at the Esquire for evening desert. The service was strange, but okay as was theTiramisu. The second visit was also after a movie. There were five of us, on a Saturday afternoon around 3:30, the place was dead. The service was nonexistent. We experienced the worst... More

Biagio's is a great restaurant for a hearty Italian meal over a long conversation. I used to live in Boston, and after being spoiled by their North End neighborhood (little Italy) I didn't think I'd find anything comparable in Cincinnati. I was wrong. Most of the pasta is freshly made at this family owned restaurant. The wine selection is solid,... More
