Biaggi's - Bloomington
servicewe had a very good waitress and she was very attentitive.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great birthday dinnerHad a great birthday dinner with my wife. She enjoyed the experience. The staff was professional. We had a great evening.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSpicy Meatballs!We always enjoy Biaggi's. Food is prepared with care, a whirlwind of servers and waitstaff keep us supplied. Dijon Crusted Salmon and Spaghetti and Meatballs were great! I have never had the Spag/ Meatballs because I always want the delicious Pork Chops, but I found the plate to be awesome. I couldn't eat it all and the rest was a delicious lunch the next day. No left over salmon.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food but NoisyThe food here is always good. The service is usually above average but was slow tonight. And it is always sooo NOISY here. All in all, good, but I would rather go somewhere quieter.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDessert for TwoWe celebrated our wedding anniversary with a late night dessert at Biaggi's. The website menu listed an item that we were told had not been offered in a year so that needed to be updated. But the key lime pie and cannoli's were fabulous. Our local Biaggi's is extremely popular so a late evening visit worked out well as there were few other patrons.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationWe were celebrating our daughters 21st birthday at the restaurant of her choice. The staff made her feel very special! A card was waiting for her at our table and she received many birthday wishes throughout our meal. Very friendly and accommodating staff!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasureWe had the filet mignon and salmon/shrimp risotto dinners, and a wonderful new dessert. All great, including the coffee and our server. Consistently good to great service, observant/engaged manager and staff, ever-evolving menu. So glad they are here!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and loudHigh school graduation and the place is full with happy, loud people. Reservation was honored within 15 minutes. Tasty and well-presented food from appetizers to desserts but sometimes hard to hear the service staff or even the person in the next chair. AC was on high, too. Bring a wrap. Definite recommend for delicious food and wonderful service but, depending on the day, not for quiet or romance in the main room.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experience!A group of four of us from Decatur IL (45 miles south) met for dinner and fellowship. Our server, Alyssa, was fabulous and so energetic and perky we were hoping it would rub off on us.
The menu selection is extensive and everything was prepared to perfection. Our fish dishes were especially good (talapia, salmon salad and a special) - as were the bacon-wrapped dates appetizer and our desserts. Two of had the little wedges of lightly deep-fried bread pudding with a scoop of ice cream - yummy.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time!We got to the restaurant for our reservation about 5 minutes early - and they were able to seat us immediately. They also gave us a fairly private table, which was great since we had a party of 6 - so the noise level was great! I also like how they gave us a round table for our group - it's much easier to have a good meal at a round table with a larger group!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner after the meetingsGreat place for that workgroup meal. A little chilly for me though. Bring a coat or sweater just in case and enjoy.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Mother's Day DInnerOn one of the busiest nights of the year we had a great dinner. They were a few minutes behind but it's Mother's Day, got a drink at the bar, no big deal. Dinner was fabulous, the kids meals for my children were great, and our waiter wonderful.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but very noisyWe went for mother's day dinner. The food and service were quite good, but the room was so noisy that it was difficult to talk. Granted, it was a special occasion and was packed to the gills, but it would be nice if there were more barriers between tables to keep the noise down just a bit.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food at reasonable prices.Biaggi's is a chain, so it's not very authentic. However, the food is consistently great and the service is always excellent. A top choice in Bloomington for a special occasion or date night.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall, we had a good experienceOverall, we had a good experience but the wait for our food was excessive.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMmenuwe were surprised that we could not order off of the luncheon menu...our reservations were at 12:15......they would only let us order off of the regular menu for dinners???? So that was a little disappointing.....5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNoise levelNoise level was some what loud. Other than that, it was great. Food was outstanding.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBiaggi's food and serviceBiaggi's food and service is always consistently great. Even though it is located in the midwest the chef always cooks their fish perfectly. Being from the East Coast it is difficult to find good fish here and Biaggi's is a great restaurant for fish as well as many other menu items.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNot many upscale restaurantsNot many upscale restaurants in Normal so this a rare find. Food is good and service is great. Sometime difficult to get into.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Occasion DinnerWe chose to celebrate our daughter's graduation from Illinois State University by dinning at Biaggi's prior to the commencement ceremony. We had a group of 10 and everything went smoothly. Our table was ready for us on time, our servers were fantastic (friendly and professional), and the food was delicious! We have been to Biaggi's many times and have never been disappointed. In fact, our older daughter was recently married and Biaggi's catered the reception. Again, everything was perfect! We still get compliments about how wonderful the food was. We definitely recommend Biaggi's for a very pleasant dinning experience every time!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation day!We chose this restaurant for our son's college graduation day lunch because we had been there before and had had a wonderful dinner. Once again I must say our lunch was great! The food was delicious with a varied menu from which to choose. The servers were very friendly and efficient, explaining everything and answering any questions we had. They were most accommodating, bringing over a high chair immediately for the baby ( even before we could ask for one!), and they suggested and brought a dish of macaroni and cheese for him extremely quickly. (If the baby ain't happy, then no one's happy!) Overall it was a great time which only added to the happiness of the day!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBiaggi's has been around inBiaggi's has been around in Bloomington for a long time but they continue to do a great job in preparing and presenting a high quality meal. I am pleased pretty much every time I go there.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFood slightly missed the markThe service was great, we never went dry and our server was very helpful, patient, and pleasant. The drinks were well done, but a bit overpriced. The atmosphere was nice, there was a lot of movement and servers were good about being aware of what was happening around them. The bread lives up to its reputation, but I don't think the food was perfect this time. The flavor combinations struck me a little oddly, for instance, the fish of the day was sweet and spicy, but I don't think it was well-balanced.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHad to eat with my coat onWe were in the back room as very crowded as graduation. It was so cold in the room, we had to eat with our coats on. I told the waiter but nothing seemed to change.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian and Gluten-freeI enjoy this restaurant chain because although it is an Italian restaurant and you would think unfriendly to those of us who can't handle gluten, they have a tasty gluten-free menu. Plus gluten-free bread that doesn't taste like cardboard (probably because there is so much oil on it, but it works for me)! I can eat with my pasta-loving pals and actually enjoy a meal, unlike any experience I have had at Olive Garden. The wine is good too, but I don't claim to be an expert on that.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI dine at Biaggi's as oftenI dine at Biaggi's as often as I can because I love the food, service is great, and I like the atmosphere.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Dinner, somewhat over seasonedOverall, this was a good dinner. Excellent wine & lobster-crab dip was delicious. Messina salad outstanding. Mahi-Mahi entre a bit over seasoned & salty. The fresh veggies sounded great, but again, were over seasoned. Scallops entre was great. Waitresses were very good & attentive. We'll come back, but will probably choose pasta next time.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMYummyPork chops were so good! And the shrimp & crab cannellini was as well. Very noisy though!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPlan on attending with otherPlan on attending with other family members in May.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, the food was wonderfulAs always, the food was wonderful and the service excellent.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I went in forMy husband and I went in for a date night. We were so pleased with the service and overall experience. We both are on a special diet to which Biaggi's accommodated without hesitation!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Easter dinner with parentsGreat Easter dinner with parents and family. Very much enjoy our regular visits.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to B's severalI have been to B's several times and always have a delightful dining experience. Server Marcus was very accommodating but not overbearing. Thank you!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMTop NotchI had been to Biaggi's before for dinner dates, which were always wonderful with the delicious food and exemplary service, but dining there as a party of ten was equally as wonderful. The waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and the wine list, was able to make wine recommendations based on our food orders, and was overall, appropriately enthusiastic and personable. Biaggi's is my favorite place to go for eggplant parmesan, and even though everyone in our group ordered something different, we all enjoyed our meals thoroughly.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAll food was great, exceptAll food was great, except the vegs. the carrots were raw, not cooked.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBiaggi's ......brilliant!!!If you like pasta with seafood, the Cappelini de Mare will fill you up with mussels, scallops, shrimp and clams in a spicy tomato based sauce. They were featuring a red velvet cake for dessert and it was a good choice. The place is loud and vibrant and the food is always good. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. He arrived when needed but not to often. With concert tickets awaiting, the waiter promptly provided the check so we didn't have to wait. The Manager stopped by the table to check on things during the meal as well. I've been to Biaggi's many times and there is a good reason for returning.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOUR MEALS WERE WONBDERFUL.OUR MEALS WERE WONBDERFUL.

Food was delicious as usual.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe held a retirement dinnerWe held a retirement dinner for one of our co-workers. There were 12 of us total and they were very attentive and did a great job. It was nice that they were able to give us a table in the back of the restaurant as it was a little more quiet and intimate, but for a busy Friday night it was very good.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Fettucine with LobsterThe Fettucine with Lobster was delicious! I especially like how you can order a half plate of pasta.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, a very good experienceAs usual, a very good experience and food was had.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is alwaysThis restaurant is always a delight however, we were meeting a new candidate and it was hard to hear with the hustle and bustle of the restaurant.1/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding!The food was outstanding! They have an entire gluten free menu and we were so impressed by it! They do a great job catering to special food needs and being very kind about it. They brought us gluten free bread that was delicious! Every time our glasses got low, they were immediately filled up by someone on the wait staff. The waiters all worked together as a team and helped each other out. Highly recommend!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
