A word from Biagio's Osteria
Rustic Southern Italian kitchen with strong influence from Tuscany. All professional staff with over 30 years experience.
"It is most certainly a gourmet establishment with a menu from top to bottom that is exquisitely creative with tastes and flavors and choices that make selections so joyously difficult--and with a wine list to match food and pocketbook. Consider this the now best Italian restaurant in the state. Three cheers for Biagio the chef."

"Concealed jewel, but easily accessible off the parkway. Esteemed staff that goes about taking care of your every need, especially the maitre d'. Exceptional menu with meals that make you crave for more. The homemade pasta dishes are unequaled to any place in the state. This is an elite restaurant that I will entertain my family and my business clients at. Head chef will go above and beyond his means for satisfaction of customer."

  • "The food was simply outstanding. The service was excellent and the bartender Joe was the consummate employee."

  • "This was my first time to Biagio's and definitely not my last! We were greeted by a very warm and friendly waiter who seated us immediately. He took great care of us and was very personable. Our food came quickly and was great! They had no problem accommodating our requests to change sauces on the entrees we ordered and our dessert was amazing and accompanied by complimentary lemoncello. I will without a doubt return to this restaurant!"

  • "They are over priced. Our waiter had trouble with spoken English, although he did bring the correct food choices. I doubt that unless someone with whom we are dining selects it that we will go there again."

  • "Biagio's has a relaxed, homey atmosphere, but don't let that fool you; it serves great modern Italian food. Went twice for girls night out ( with two different groups), and both times the service was impeccable, and the food delicious .Appetizers were great , especially the spinach crepes. We are fish lovers, so we ordered either a shrimp dish, salmon, or the fish special of the day- all presented very beautifully, large portions, and everybody raved about the taste of the food. Save some space for dessert, the lemoncello custard is great.Will definitely go back."

  • "Chose the restaurant for my husband's birthday. My daughter and her family lives down the street. I live in New York. Drove an hour. I was very pleasantly surprise for my first visit. My daughter recommended the restaurant because it was close to her home. None of us had ever eaten there. Food was delicious. Service was great. Ambiance very nice. a little pricey. But comparable to Westchester County"

  • "My wife and I used a gift certificate to dine out. We found the food and service to be outstanding. Vinnie our waiter was very attentive and professional. A great selection of Italian dishes to choose from and a wine list to match. Even though we tried out the restaurant with a gift certificate, we would certainly come back."

  • "Excellent cheese plate (burrata!) with roasted peppers,sautéed mushrooms & olive oil, light fried calamari, & orrechette w/sausage & broccoli rabe that is second to none. I really want to dock a star because the bread was not fresh (definitely reheated) but since all the really important food was amazing I won't quibble. We closed the place down & were never rushed or made to feel we overstayed our welcome. One thing I found awkward is the lobby is nondescript, & it's not clear which door to enter as there doesn't seen to be an obvious hostess station. We were met by a man in the vestibule who hurriedly waved us into the restaurant & kept walking away from us before we'd hung our coats. Would def return for delish Italian meal!"

  • "This is my third or fourth time going to the restaurant. This time was not the best. As always the food is excellent. The problem was how it started. I made a 3:30 reservation through open table. The website says hours start at 4 on Sunday which i was not aware of until writing this review so not sure why I was able to make the reservation. My wife and I showed up and there were two baby showers going on so we had to walk through the party to try and find someone to help us. There was nobody around. Then we did see all the employees eating and after a few minutes they decided to help us. They were shcoked we had a reservation. They rushed and made up a table. No apology. Food was excellent"

  • "A valentine's day luncheon that my husband and I shared with our daughter and granddaughter. Everyone raved about their meal and the wine was excellent."

  • "My ossobuco was fantastic (specialty of the house, however my dates fish special was a flop and a disappointment-very dry and over cooked."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Nothing to say negatively about this sensational spot 1/4 mile from Sikorsky Aircraft in Stratford. Food was fabulous, as was the presentation. Highly professional waitstaff. Great for Valentine's Day dinner. The only potential negative is that the tables are close together, but that wasn't a problem when we went because it was during a snow storm and not all the tables were filled. We'll be back often and will bring friends."

  • "Has to be one of the best Italian restaurant in Connecticut. Their specials are fantastic from appetizer to main course to finishing with a double expresso and a special home made treat. This establishment will NOT disappoint you."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We are longtime customers of Biagio's and to Biagio's credit the food is consistently excellent as is the service. This little gem of a place is in a strip mall but, the atmosphere is also very nice....small, a little tight but nice! There has been some turnover in staff and the new servers are excellent as are the bus staff. the food is always beautifully presented and the quailty is tops. How often do you see a chef owner walking through the restaurant checking on things and talking with the guests? I think that is important. One of the best restaurants in all of CT."

  • "After a visit to Biagio's in 2010, been trying randomly to stop in for dinner. Unfortunately, we don't go out to eat much recently and it is always last minute. The restaurant must be doing well because without a reservation, it was impossible to get a table. But our anniversary was approaching and a good meal was deserved! I used OpenTable to reserve our table and it was worth the 4 years to get back here! Food and service was incredible! The courses were all plated beautiful and the baby spinach salad with the warm pear and goat cheese was exquisite. Can't wait to go back again, but not waiting as long this time!"
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "I have eaten there twice, now. The ossobuco was amazing - the best I have ever had! The desserts are a real treat . The food is a treat for the eye as well as for the palate. I was thrilled to find such good food so near to my area. The wait staff is attentive, but not intrusive. This is my new favorite restaurant - a place where I can be proud to take visiting family."

  • "My partner and I recently moved to Stratford and are big foodies. My stepfather did some research online and gave us a gift certificate to Biagio's for Christmas. We both agreed he made an excellent choice for us. I didn't give anything 5 stars because we've been to restaurants that have blown us away and Biagio's didn't do that. However, we will definitely go back as the food, service, and ambiance were all excellent. The place is small and packed tight, very European-feeling, which I liked. We had the squash raviolis to start, and the shrimp entree and the ossabucco for dinner. All of it was delicious but I will say that our favorite part may have been the bread! Came with amazing bruschetta and bean hummus. Vinny was a great server!"

  • "My boyfriend and I went here for a second time this past weekend because we both enjoyed our entrees so much our first visit. This time didn't let us down in that area either. We enjoyed everything from the bread to our appetizers and then to our entrees. The only thing we didn't think was amazing was the dessert. Between the two times we have been here, we have gotten three different dessert that we weren't impressed about. I personally love dessert, but all were just mediocre to us. Overall, the service and food were great though! Can't wait to go back again!"

  • "Parking is good, the staff is attentive, the wine is great, but the food is to die for. The best ever. The waiters are there to cater to your every need, and the owner is watching over it all."

  • "Excellent food and attentive, yet non-intrusive service. Various family members patrol the dining room to make sure everything's in order. My daughter loved the lobster ravioli and there were no liftovers of the Oriechette Biagio's. The Biagio's tour of appetizers is amazing. A very nice time."

  • "This is not traditional Italian but it is so good who cares! Service was great, wine was good. I had the salmon with truffled parm grits and I can't wait to have it again. The manager even helped me put on my coat as I was leaving. To top it all off it is resonably priced, highly recommend."
    Dined on 12/16/2013
  • "Can't say enough about this restaurant! Great food and service and certainly not your 'typical' Italian food so it's good for foodies (I say that with love coming from an italian restaurant family) but still maintains classic dishes. We were seated in front of a corner fireplace in the greenhouse for a pre-holiday lunch and it was perfect!"

  • "From the moment we arrived the staff was courteous and attentive to our every need. The chef roams the room chatting with patrons to make sure everything is perfect. The meals are both beautiful and delicious as well as creative. Top it all off with a fair price and you have a true winner. My wife and I intend to make the 1 hour drive over and over again in the years to come."

  • "We were immediately greeted by the maître de at the door & given a choice of tables to dine at. We sat in the porch area which had a fire going. They had a tuna tartare & avocado salad special which we ordered for an appetizer along with the broccoli rabe & sausage. Both were fantastic, rich with flavor but not heavy. Our entrees: gnocchi with veggies & pesto cavatelli with chicken. They were equally delicious & well conceived dishes. The only reason I can't give a full 5 stars was the desserts were not perfect; the creme brûlée was well toasted on the outside, but watery inside & the Mille was "too crunchy." Other than that the service was very attentive & the whole experience was great. I would definitely recommend it to friends."

  • "Was disappointed with attention given to my special request due to celiac disease. Waiter did not seem to understand the seriousness of my request. Was brought a salad twice with a crusted bread topping. Sent back was told they made a new salad, salad returned with crusted bread slice on the bottom!"
