Like you are in Italy
The food was excellent. Will return soon. However the sound is not well buffeted and as it filled up, it became hard to hear my husband.

Can't wait to go back!
I had a midweek dinner with a friend and we were both delighted! The ambiance was so "delicious" as was the food! The service made us feel well cared for, the food was delicious and walking through the garden on our way in and out was soothingly beautiful.

There were five woman and we were ALL happy! It was a great place to meet, to chat and to have a delicious dinner! The wide variety of entrées allowed everyone to order their favorites. The service was very friendly and our dinners were served in a timely manner. Prices varied; affordable for the amount of food on our plates I can't wait to go back and try something else on their menu!

We love Biagio's--the food, service and fun vibe--right on the river. Always a fun night with friends.
Our out of town friends enjoy coming here.

Another great experience!
I was introduced to the restaurant a few months ago. I am not in the area often, but happened to be last night. The food was excellent and the staff was great. I will certainly return.

Traveled lots in Europe and Asia and the lobster ravioli is one of the best meals I have ever had. Service was excellent. Everyone was interested in making our dining experience special and they succeeded. We will definately be back!
6/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Both Pappardelle Bolognese and Pollo Parmigiana were delicious and large enough to take leftovers. Desserts wonderful as well. Great service. Always a great experience every time we have been here for dinner!

They seemed to do everything
They seemed to do everything well, but nothing that really stood out. Food was wonderful, but not the best Italian I ever had.

Birthday Party for 86 yr old mom
Restaurant was a nice place to take Mom, handicap accessible and food was good also. We all took some great food home! Service was great and they even brought mom a fantastic piece of Tiramasu with a candle ! Yummy ! I would definitely go again.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
For an expensive restaurant , service was really poor. Had to ask for water to be filled three times, waiter was difficult to understand and there was no checking if we needed anything. Wine was very expensive. Would not go back.
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
A lovely night out
Had driven by Biagio so many times and thought it looked like a great place. We finally had an opportunity to give it a try and it didn't disappoint! The food was delicious. Reasonably priced as well. Will definitely return to take advantage of the roof top deck. Considering having a work function there as well.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a fun place with a great decor and unbelievable food, especially there seafood , I came with a group of eighteen , friends and family all seafood and meat eaters everyone I mean everyone even my wife who is the pickiest person I know was raving about the food and atmosphere,I had the grilled swordfish, my wife the lobster ravioli and my brother the fruita Damari , we shared a little of each wow this had to be the best I've ever had only resturant that even comes close is cavier Rouce in ny and you'll pay up the nose over there, we can't wait to o back and have drinks on there patio.
7/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent service and food!
The food was very good. I had the lobster ravioli and my husband had the blackened swordfish.
They sent over a complimentary dessert, knowing that it was my husband's birthday! Very sweet!

We felt like welcomed guests
Last night four of us enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Biagio Ristorante and Bar. Our meals were phenomenal. The Caesar, beet and goat cheese salad and theCapresini Bruschetta were presented as works of art that tasted as good as they looked. The Pappardelle Bolognese, BBQ Steak Tips, Jumbo Sea Scallopsand the frutti di mare were to die for, particularly the white chocolate risotto.
Parking was readily available, as was the handicap access, which we needed. We were impressed that our waiter Jose memorized our orders without writing them down. I also got to chat with Joey, one of the owners. I always admire a restaurant owner and/or manager who makes it a point to meet people. You feel more like a welcome guest than a customer.

Great Lunch Place
So happy that Biagio's is now open for lunch. I have had dinner there and it is amazing. Now I can enjoy lunch there as well. The food is fantastic, service wonderful and a great place. We had lunch there and the manager was so nice and checked in with us and even gave us all complimentary desserts. I highly recommend it to everyone!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exceptioanal food and service
Except for the Cesar dressing which was overly abundant and not tasting like a real cesar dressing.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not to be missed
I love this restaurant and go back often. The staff is terrific from the moment you enter. The owner makes you feel that he is thrilled that you have come. The food is great, just as described and more so. I like the décor, not too trendy but certainly up to date, warm with great woods and homey décor. My only criticism is that it is too noisy. It needs noise buffers. I think the noise level keeps it from being romantic and would deter me from coming with a large group, because we could never hear each other.

Wonderful in Waltham
Biagio is consistently good, a very nice alternative to making the trek to the North End in Boston. Service is outstanding. The food is very very good and the variety is exceptional. Highly recommended.
8/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
Reasonably priced, food and wine , blackened swordfish was amazing as was my wife's filet, excellent service and food, also love that the owners are present to watch over everything it really shows they care about there guest experience .
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I came across this restaurant
I came across this restaurant two years age while visiting Boston. I can't say that I am frequently in the area but I do try to eat here when I am in town. The food is fresh and the dishes are varied, along with a decent wine list. Prices are reasonable, but I am used to NYC prices. It is a solid place to have a great meal.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Italian food.
My boyfriend and I went here for his birthday dinner during the week. Not too crowded, nice ambience. Our waitress was extremely nice and attentive, without being obtrusive. The food was excellent. Highly recommend the aracini. Would rival anything in the North End. Would definitely eat here again.

Saturday Night with Young Adults
We ate outside and found the evening air to be pleasant. Service was very good. Food was excellent. My only suggestion is to put cushions on the metal seats. Otherwise it was a fantastic experience.
8/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good but not great
We had a nice dinner with friends at Biagio, though not the great meal I had anticipated. The extensive menu is probably a bit too ambitious for the kitchen. Perhaps if they thinned it a bit they could pay more attention to each item. The Mediterranean pasta was very good as was the haddock special (though pricy). The linguini with clam sauce was uninspired. The bread was barely carb-worthy, but was a good vehicle for the olive oil. Salt should be available if the kitchen preference is to undersalt/season things. The wine menu would benefit from a few more bottles under $50. Staff were friendly but not very knowledgable.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Italian restaurant
My first time here, and we really enjoyed. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful with the wine and dishes. We started by sharing a salad and rollitini - both were very good, and we had extra to take home. Bew had two entrees, seafood (scallops) and pasta with lobster and they were great - we also took some of them home. We shared a bottle of valpolicelli (my recent favorite). All in all, a really nice meal with goof food and great service
8/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a great meal and the service was very knowledgable and attentive. HIghly recommended it!

European "Gem" in Waltham
I have had several business-dinner meetings at Biagio's and have been extremely pleased with the total experience. The seating is comfortable (not too crowded, one table next to the other), the service and food outstanding, and the noise level acceptable for a meaningful exchange. Comfortbale, old-world, feel right in the heart of Waltham. Highly recommend for business execs, couples, and foodies. You will not be disappointed.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were a party of 8 with age group between 18 and 82. The waiter was so professional, helpful, had a good personality and very knowledgable about the food and wine
The special appetizer was perfect for our group and I'm very pleased that he recommended it
So glad I found Biagio's on Open Table, we will be back
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
first time here
I have never had a dining experience at Biagio's before. This place did not disappoint. There were 4 of us ladies for a ladies night out. The ambience was beautiful they had great big sofas upstairs where you could sit and relax before eating. The food was cooked perfectly and the wine list was large enough to find the wine of your choice.
I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for romance, fun, or just an easy night out.

Don't let the location fool you
Although this restaurant is located on busy Moody Street next to the Commuter Rail Station, it is quite charming inside. The bartender was very personable. The waitress was knowledgable and accomodating. The food is delicious and the portions are large. You will hear the occasional train go by, but that didn't seem to bother the guests as they continued eating, drinking and laughing. I will return to this restaurant and will get the tiramisu again!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely local gem
I went to Biagio's for my birthday. We had a great table at the open windows and the staff was very attentive. It was a great meal overall.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was thrilled to find organic choices and the food was amazingly delicious!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service, fabulous food. A bonus would have been
a birthday acknowledgement of some sort, after
mentioning it twice.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Biagio is a hit!
We went for my birthday and we were treated wonderfully. The Fig, Marscapone and Walnut Ravioli was very good, the Lobster Ravioli was filled with lobster meat and the sauce was outstanding. At the end of the meal they brought over this incredible peanut butter ice cream cake wonderfulness...so good!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
great place to enjoy the Waltham
great place to enjoy the Waltham area and a welcome break from the diversity of unusual ethnic enjoyable cuisines, . . accommodating, attentive, and food well prepared...
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great execution of Italian Cuisine
Biagio does not try too hard with being overly trendy. They don't need to be. Biagio serves the standards of Italian Cuisine (parmigiana, raviolis, risottos, etc.) incredibly well. My veal osso buco was exquisite with the richness of the shank so tender that no knife is required. The Eggplant Bracciolettini as an appetizer was tasty.
The ambiance is lively with everyone enjoying themselves, so, if you are expecting library silence, you won't find it here. Service was very attentive.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Highly recommended-you will love it
Every time I've eaten at Biaggio's I have been thrilled with the quality of the food. The service is attentive, the wine and martini lists are extensive. It is always a pleasure to go there. I only wish I lived closer!!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Here, I have lived in the area for 30 years and did not know about this place! Think it's been open about 5 or 7 years... Been here three time in six months! Fabulous food @ reasonable prices and owned locally. Osso Buco was to die for! Had a smooth lite Italian red which tasted like a fine Pinot Noir ... Excellent service. My biz guest was delighted, as well ! Got this from Open Table... who also provides a wonderful service

A find while visiting Waltham
While staying in Waltham for a college parents' weekend, we gave this restaurant a try. The food and service were very good. They honored our reservation by seating us promptly. Try the appetizer sampler ( coconut shrimp, fried ravioli, fried calamari and more) - - it was huge, and everything was delicious. Everyone enjoyed their main courses as well.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delivers on its promise
This was my second time visiting and they delivered excellent food and service both times. Three of my guests hadn't been before and they all three said they'll be back. Eat at the bar or dine in the main room...both have charm and are very cozy. Well done!!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
My family went to Biagio for my husband's 60th birthday and requested a corner table, which we had, and had a great experience. The food was ver good, service very attentive and they even "remembered" from my reservation comments that it was my husband's birthday and without asking brought over dessert while singing happy birthday. It is one of our favorite places to go in the city of Waltham.

Was outstanding. Had been in the area many times and never stopped at this place. Now it will be hard to stop anywhere else.
10/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
I took a client and friend to lunch here and we were both delighted with the food and the service. Rafael made our lunch memorable - he was so proud to be part of the restaurant - he spoke as if he owned the place.
I have recommended this restaurant to several friends who are "foodies"
10/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
Food was impeccable, we'll
Food was impeccable, we'll be back for that. Décor very upscale, very nice. Some of the best service we've had in a long time. Sorry we didn't get there early enough to hang out in the bar more.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
We ended up at Biagio because it was all we could get a reservation for at the last minute on a Saturday night (7p). The restaurant has a small parking lot, but luckily we got the last space. The wait staff were very nice and attentive and spot on with recommendations of what we should get and what we might be disappointed in. The calamari with chili sauce was delicious, as was the huge portion of Osso Bucco. The wine recommendation was delicious..all in all we were very pleased. However, this is not a cheap restaurant...with 2 glasses of wine, 2 entrees, 1 app and 1 salad and a decadent chocolate dessert, the bill, with tip, was around $180!! The restaurant is worth going to for a special occasion when you have extra cash to spend.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
extremely hospitable team
Goes beyond the typical red sauce joint. the fig, marscapone and walnut ravioli are a special treat entree, but can be ordered as an appetizer for two. real focus on serving fish (fins as well as shells) and the execution is well done.
other amenities include a lovely building with its own parking lot, a huge advantage in this part of Waltham.
most important is the warmth of the greeters and wait staff. this is a family run business by a family that cares.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lived up to expectations
Hotel recommended the restaurant as we were from out if down at a conference. We were absolutely impressed. The food reminded me of the kind of food combinations I had growing up whenever my grandmother cooked. Fabulous!
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
