Diner Reviews
  • "My friend and I both ordered the blackened swordfish and shared a filet we both agreed this was one of the best meals, we had in a long time."

  • "We went early in the evening on a summer weekend and it was relatively quiet but the service was very slow. We were not served bread, my salad was boring, lobster ravioli had little lobster in the pasta. There was, however, an unshelled lobster tail and small claw which was left in the sauce and was very tough. Scallops were ok. Cheesecake was dried out and stale. The overall quality of the service and food has decreased since our last visit. Disappointing!"

  • "Biagio has some of the most authentic continental Italian food this side of the pond. The homemade pasta is cooked perfectly, the sauces and proteins seasoned just right and flavor the pasta, not overwhelm it with just the right proportion of sauce to pasta. The meats are also delicious. Maybe you'll find better inside Italy, but within the rest of Europe, Biagio would compete with some of the best. Only two recommendations: 1) keep the menu Italian for everything from antipaste to dolci for desert and 2) feature more Italian wines. There are plenty of decent vino de tavola to please less-discerning tastes. Oh, and a nice chilled pinot nero rose would be great for hot summer evenings on the terrace."

  • "I initially had high hopes for this place. Unfortunately the experience was disappointing. Our eggplant appetizer came cold and the white chocolate risotto, which sounded delicious, was awful. The food came way too quickly, making us feel like it had just been sitting back there. The service was just okay as well. We had to get our own menus from a neighboring table."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The food was good, but the noise from the street and the trains were beyond the highest decibel rating we have heard. They keep the front windows open and all the traffic and motorcycles go up and down Moody Street all evening. We were sitting toward the rear of the restaurant and could not hear each other. Will wait until cold or rainy weather to return."

  • "We went for lunch for Father's Day. Appetizers were unbelievable, especially the Rhose Thailand calamari. The wine and food were lovely. Went to the bar to watch World Cup and enjoy after dinner drinks. Waitstaff, host, and bartender made us feel like we were family!"

  • "Everything was just perfect. We loved the pear salad. Subbed parm for the gorgonzolla and it was yummy. Next time we each want our own!!"

  • "I read several reviews of Biagio complaining about service, noise level, quality, and price. I don't know what restaurant they were at , but it wasn't this one. I found the service to be excellent. Our waiter made many suggestions and demonstrated his knowledge of the menu and wine list. While the brick walls made the noise level moderately high, it just seemed to me that the patrons were enjoying the experience. Everyone in our party of four thoroughly enjoyed their meals and I, who never leaves anything on my plate, even had enough left to bring home. The veal special was just spectacular and wine was excellent. As far as price, I found it to be very reasonable. I will definitely return to Biagio and recommend you do too."

  • "I met a friend for dinner at Biagio's on a Friday night. The restaurant was about half full. Unfortunately it was raining so we didn't get to go on the roof top patio which looked very nice. The food was excellent and the staff were very friendly however service was a bit slow. We didn't mind too much since we weren't in a rush. I would definitely go back again."

  • "Food abd ambiance wonderful. The service was sub par. The waiters helper was better than the very nice but not so great waiter. Still we will return."

  • "While we had a very nice table by the window, we chose the restaurant as a place to be able to eat outside and were told when we arrived the deck wasn't open for lunch. That was not mentioned to me when I spoke with the hostess on the phone two days earlier. Lunch was delicious but we were disappointed that we couldn't sit outside on such a beautiful day."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Went for lunch and the service was very slow. The price is very expensive as well, but the food was good. There are so many italian places in the area that this is low on my list."

  • "After dining all over Italy for years the I could happily recommend the food here to my Italian friends."

  • "Picked this restaurant one night from list on the web. It is a very quaint, wonderful place with a great bar and equally good food! I had the lobster ravioli which was excellent and the calamari as a starter were perfect! Highly recommend this place!"
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "The restaurant interior is lovely and the food overall was good. We went for a post-graduation luncheon, and had looked online at the lunch menus, but when we arrived were given the dinner menus. Everything was much more expensive than we had been led to believe by the information on the web. They were also out of several items. Our server was very pushy and felt more like a salesman, trying to push drinks and expensive appetizers. His tone was borderline offensive. We had a good meal, but it could have been great. "

  • "A great dining experience! From the service to the wonderful food the evening was complete. Couldn't have asked for a better meal!"

  • "What a wonderful restaurant right in the middle of Waltham! Perfect, generous proportions. Fantastic pear, gorgonzola salad. Excellent, unusual walnut and gorgonzola ravioli. Exquisite sauces on all the dishes. Great options for family style vegetable dishes. Eggplant rollatini (?) appetizer is 100% authentic. Atmosphere is excellent. We were in for a graduation celebration but it would be lovely for a night out for 2 as well. Looked like a terrific bar too. Has an old world feel - charming. "

  • "Enjoyed the pear and Gorgonzola salad as well as the scallops. Have been to Biagios a number of times and the food is always great. Server was attentive as usual. When the restaurant is crowded, it can be noisy, but still love it."

  • "I took my wife and daughter here for Mother's Day. The food was very good. The service was eexcellent. The prices were a bit high but I expected that before I made my reservation. I was very satisfied."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Came after work with co workers,everyone was raving about there dishes especially me ,my entree was the special of the night bone in veal chop,I knew biagios was going to be good the moment we were greeted bye the host , he welcome us like old friends.service was also spot on very friendly and professional."

  • "The special for the day was a prime rib - it was a very rough piece of meat and it could not be eaten so it was sent back. The waitress was very accomodating and offered to bring something else and removed the item off the bill. Great experience"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We are not sure if we will go back to the restaurant. Some of the dishes were good but others were not remarkable, The waitress was not really knowledgeable about the different dishes and we had to ask twice for the prices of the "specials" Too expensive for the quality of the food"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Very good server. Food is good & well-prepared. A bit pricey, especially side of pasta. Menu choices a bit limited. Beet salad & Caesar salad were very good, particularly the latter, which used quality cheese and a delicious dressing. Chicken saltimbocca was tasty, though a tad tough. Spouse said her swordfish steak was very good. Nice sauvignon blanc served with a chiller. Good coffee & decaf cappucino. Server brought complimentary limoncello when I told her it was my wife's birthday, which was nice. However, I had noted the occasion in my Open Table reservation & neither the hostess nor server otherwise noted it. This happens too often. Restaurants, if you accept OT reservations, read them."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The service was excellent. Definitely not a romantic or intimate atmosphere, but nice nonetheless. The Capiacola ravioliswere delicious bThe Pappardelle Bolognese was also good, but not what I was expecting. I thought it would have had more of a tomato tasting sauce, but reminded me more of beef stew. The. meat was very tender and tasty. The salads are quite large. I would share one as an appetizer. The prices are comparable to the North End. I would recommend Biagio."

  • "The food at Biagio's was amazing. We started with an appetizer of calamari, shrimp, ravioli and mozzarella. Each was mouth-watering. Our waiter was attentive. He made sure we had our round of drinks. He also recommended what to pair with our entrees. We each chose a different entree, but every one if us was pleased with our respective selection. Between the scallops, baked haddock special or the fruitti do mare, we were all delighted. The taste of each awakened our senses, even as leftovers. The portions were more than adequate. The price was a little steep, but well worth the flavorful taste. The dessert and check were both slow to arrive, as the restaurant became busy, but we would all go again."

  • "We have lived in Newton for nearly 28 years and we are always looking for new venues in the Greater Newton area, but we never would have noticed Biagio except for their mass mailing. Attractive decor, a little noisy due to super high ceilings. Attentive waitstaff. Delicious, super fresh calamari appetizer. And I loved my fig & Gorgonzola ravioli."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "We were coming into town at all different times and the restaurant did everything to accommodate us as we came in at different times. Food was delish! Skinny key lime martini a little strong. Had margarita pizza, fig ravioli, pear and Gorgonzola salad and salmon.....all wonderful!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "This restaurant was my second choice after another area restaurant was too busy, The online reviews were mixed and some were bad, but we had a pleasant experience. Yes it's pricey, but the atmosphere is nice and the food was tasty and no problem getting a table on a Saturday night. Online reservations made it easy. I would go here again. There is also a boardwalk next to the restaurant that is good for a stroll after your meal."

  • "This was a group of 7 women who meet once a month at different venues. I had requested either a round or large square table and the square table was waiting for us. The waiter was most attentive without being intrusive and waited until we were finished with the meal to engage us in conversation about our group. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. Everyone in the group said that they would definitely return."

  • "I've asked many friends family co workers, were to go in the metro west for a great dinner, and always get the same answer biagiios biagiios biagios , we'll I finally came and wow , I understand why biagios is great food service price and the smile you receive when you first walk in bye the young handsome gentleman at the front , I would go back just for him , but if you are lucky enough to go you must try there salmon and rhode Thai calamari , you will never have better fried calamari then that sweet and a spicy ."

  • "Service poor, good very mediocre, I will not be going back. The waiter knew that the bar had not prepared the drink properly, but he was afraid to go back to the bar because he said they were so busy and he really seemed afraid of the bartender. He tried to make up for it by giving us free desserts - they weren't good either."

  • "My husband and I went for a night out from the kids and it was perfect. We got the perfect table in the back corner, very quiet. I started with a glass of Riesling and it was wonderful. Our waitress was fabulous and the food was great! I asked if I could get the Chicken Piccata over the Pappardelle and they said no problem. It was fantastic and I brought home enough for at least 1 more meal!! My husband went with a mix of appetizers and he loved them all. All in all a wonderful night!"

  • "We went to Biagio's for a birthday dinner on a Friday at 7 pm. It was pretty quiet. We were seated promptly and the service was very good. The food was good but I was expecting a little better quality. the prices were reasonable. I had wanted to go there for a long time and now I've been there. Overall it was good but there are better options out there."

  • "wish the food could match the atmosphere - always disappoints me and it is so close to where i live and has parking in the back which really makes it great for the area - wine is ok - not fabulous either and would love to give it more stars if that made the difference - so close but so far....."

  • "Biagio's was great for my boyfriend &I.the opera was a problem when we attempted to converse with 2 patrons 1 barstool away.The bartender was pleasant & although they didn't have one spirit to make my first choice drink, the key lime martini was frothy &delicious. The appetizers were terrific, especially the white chocolate risotto& Rhode Thailand camaro. The batter for the calamari was so light& perfect yet didn't take away from the fresh squid inside. The only negative was Open Table boasts of a plush lounge I never saw. We chose this place because we thought it would be lively on a Saturday night, but it was "senior citizen' quiet. I will return for the service& food but will pass when in the mood for an energetic weekend excursion."
