“Very Nice Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

On a recent trip home to visit my father the whole family dined at Biaggi's. First, the food. Delicious. We started with crab&lobster dip. Decidedly awesome. Everyone ordered a main course (save for my sister) so we all had salads. I had the spinach salad, my husband had the wedge, I don't know what anyone else had, but no one was disappointed. Two of us ordered the scallops for our main course. Perfectly prepared and generously portioned. I took half mine home and enjoyed again the next day. My husband had ziti al forno and it was delicious and also generously portioned. He also took half of his home, but he enjoyed it later that same evening. My sister and niece split the roasted beet salad and a pizza. They seemed quite content. Dad enjoyed a huge serving of lasagna, most of which he took home and had for lunch the next day. No one had desert, but we did savor three bottles of wine. The atmosphere is lovely and the noise level is perfect. Not too loud, everyone able to hear each other talking. The staff is incredible. My father eats at this restaurant on a regular basis, but we all felt like we were the most important people there. Everything was perfect. Thank you!!!!!!

“A Nice Meal.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

The wife and I were returning from a long swing through MT, WY, & CO and were about "steaked-out". We wanted something different, so we chose Biaggi's and it was very good. We were seated very quickly and our drink and food orders were taken in a timely manner. The server then brought us a nice basket containing 2 types of tasty bread. We shared a large Caesar Salad which was excellent. The wife had eggplant parmigiano which was very tasty and was a large portion. I had the Lasagna and it was very good. We finished by sharing a white chocolate bread pudding which was decadent. I did think that the prices for the entrees were just about right, but the salads and desserts were a tad expensive. Overall, though, a very nice dining experience, especially considering Biaggi's is a chain restaurant. Olive Garden could sure learn something from them. I highly recommend Biaggi's.

“Good Food but very helpful management + staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Very good food, very good atmosphere for friends.
But what impressed me most was how the management really took care of all of us. The restaurant had run out of the special "muffaletto" but went to each person individually to help them decide if they wanted to try the sandwich with different bread or a different dish.
They took their time to explain/answer any questions that we had.
Our glasses were kept full, the bread basket refilled and the olive oil on the table was great.
Will return for date night and keep Biaggi's in mind for family/friends that visit Peoria.
