I am very disappointed to have to write this review. Biaggi's was one of my top-3 favorites for years. However, after our most recent visit, I don't think we'll be returning. The prices have increased, and the portions have gotten smaller. Jason, the manager does not interact well with the patrons. Very disappointing.
Wonderful management and staff – I just had my daughter's 1st birthday party here, and I have to say that my husband and I were both extremely happy with the service and attention our party received. We had about 40 people for the lunch party, and pretty much everything we asked for, the restaurant was able to accommodate. The guests seemed to enjoy the food, and the servers and management were so friendly and concerned about keeping everyone happy. They really helped make the party go smoothly and I am very grateful to the management and staff.
Great Food and Service – I have been to Biaggi's many times and have always meant to write a review. The food is excellent; I have never has anything off of the menu that wasn't.. They are always willing to make substitutions of any sides and accept special orders pleasantly. This is my family's favorite place to dine.
Great restuarant – Family and I just went out to Biaggi's tonight and I must say the negative reviews were no help. We almost didn't go, but I am so glad we went. I had the shrimp and crab cannelloni, my husband had the osso buco, and the kids had pizza and spaghetti ($5.99). Every meal was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!! It was our first visit but it won't be the last. Oh one more thing the bread pudding A+, tiramasu A-.
Got lost and lucky – loved this place. Stopped for directions stayed for dinner. Nice wine selection and nightly specials.
Great service and surprise canoli
From good to bad – This pains me since this used to be one of my favs for a couple of years. The last two times I ate here, I noticed they removed my favorite entree from the menu. When I asked they said they regularly change the menu and always have, which was a bold faced lie. They even changed the bread. I tried some kind of entree I have tried to forget and it was terrible. The quality just wasnt there and the portions were smaller.
I guess economic times are rough for everyone, but a restaurant shouldn't remove quality items and skimp on food. This place was pretty empty the last two times I went there and once was on a Friday night. I guess its only a matter of time before the cheapness kills this restaurant.
Pretty Good Food,.... Service ? – This review is based on unusual circumstances. I drive a Big Limo Bus and as a result, get to dine for free at the restaurants that I bring my passengers to! Yes, lucky me (most of the time). I do not believe that the folks at Biaggi's were familiar with the custom of "Taking Care" of the bus driver...so I had to educate them.
I was seated at a two-person booth and within a few minutes, was greeted by my server, Kate. This was the only, really bad part of the evening. Once Kate became aware that I was being fed for free, she must have assumed that her "Gratuity" was foregone as well. Because after taking my order, it was thirty minutes (after having finished 4/5's of my meal) before I saw her again! I had to ask another Waiter for bread. And let me add here that the gratuity I left her was very generous. Had I paid for my meal, she would have received "0". Never assume Kate...never assume!
Now, as for the food.... I ordered the Veal Parmesan. This is served with "spaghetti topped with our garlic Alfredo sauce". First the Veal, as stated in the menu, they were quite tender....deliciously so! The breading was light and had a nice crispness to it...very nice! I found the sauce on the veal to be a bit on the bland side, and one-dimensional, but good. The serving size was more than ample; I'm a big boy and I could not finish it all.
The Pasta was cooked Perfectly! ...firm, but done. But the "garlic Alfredo sauce" was remiss of any garlic that I could detect. In fact, I thought it was just a light cream sauce (which was tasty)...but should be served in a separate plate or bowl since it mixes with the Veal's marinara sauce.
All in all, the food was pretty good. I'll be back to try some of the other dishes. Note to the floor manager* spend less time doing service work and talk to your Customers !!! I did not see you make a single customer contact while I was there....and that is certainly more important that placing flatware!
mmm mmm good – Walking into the restaurant dazzled me from the start. It was beautifully done with a great sense of atmosphere. The service was wonderful from the hostess down to the bus boy. The Bread is great and for some reason I feel that if the bread is good, the food should be too. I was not disappointed. I ordered the Lobster Fettuccine and it was magnificent. The place was clean and nicely designed. I am now a regular customer and words cannot describe how glad I am to have found this restaurant.
Avoid Saturday nights – Our nighmare started right after we where set at our table w wait for 15 minutes before a waiter came to our table matter fact I have to ask to the assistan manager to please have some one to our table, server came took our drinks order and took a regular time once he took our appetizer order never came back to take our dinner order he did came back after appetizers where served and we still have the menus on our tables, bus boy served our appetizers and we have to clean the table for him to make room on the table done with appetizers and dinner came but plates were never removed from our table and I asked to clean up our table before they droped dinner the bus boy or waiter took our food back and did not got back until we rewuested to another waiter for our food and to remove our durty dishes from our table overall service was terrible and we have promise our selfs never to go back
love this restaurant. – we have become regulars at this place. when we visit on weekends, we have never had to wait long. if we did, it was only about 20 minutes (and you could go to the bar area to wait while having a drink).. the food has always been excellent - i recommend the fra diavolo, lobster linguini, or linguini with clams. they are all soo good. and their bread is great too! i've never had a problem with their service here. all the wait staff seemed like they knew what they were doing.
