Had been traveling all day. Was hungry & was directed to another restaurant by the hotel but fortunately got lost in a residential area. Luckily found this hidden gem. Waiter had an attitude. He acted like he was doing us a favor. But the food...More

I have not been a fan of Biaggi's for some time, which is sad because it was a sort of go-to spot for special occasions. But after two seriously poor meals, things show signs of perking up. My short rib ravioli was tasty but perhaps...More

I go back again and again. I have never been disappointed. Try the crab cake sliders, beet and goat cheese salad, spinach salad, pizzas, or pretty much anything. It is all good. Plus, the waitstaff is really friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

One of our favorites for family or business meals. We have a gluten allergy in our family. The custom menu offers good options. The gluten free bread is worth a try for everyone. If gluten isn’t a problem the bread basket and dipping oil before...More

My daughter has strict dietary restrictions, and said this was the gluten free bread she ever had! They have a separate gluten free menu, and serve warm gluten free bread at the beginning of the meal. The waitress was accommodating, and knew all about gluten...More

I used to love this place, I’m not sure if I’ve changed or they have. The last few times I’ve been here the food is so mediocre. Somewhere between bland and just not well prepared maybe? Not the most informative review I know, but I...More
