Great food, outstanding waiters
Great food, outstanding waiters really know the menu. Had a wonderful time for my birthday. The birthday was in the booking, however it was not mentioned during the visit. They should take time to read the reservations, this was a little disappointing.

Food was terrific and service was outstanding. Their new "lite" menu is a great addition.

Great anniversary celebration!
We always love going to Biaggi's. We can always count on a great meal. With their great kids' menu our kids enjoy eating here as well, which is great to have a nice place you can go with your kids. We have attended several of the special wine tasting dinners they put on now and then, and the food & wine pairings have always been exceptional. Last weekend we had a group of 8 people celebrating our anniversary. The service was great and the food even better. We changed the number of people in our reservation on a very busy weekend and the staff was quick to accomodate us. Can't say enough great things!

I would recommend trying out
I would recommend trying out some of the new menu options. We started with the bacon-wrapped dates, which were amazing. I tried the new steak dish. The steak was good, but the fries were just okay. We ordered the Italian donut dessert, which was also amazing and definitely big enough for sharing. It took awhile to get our dessert and the manager gave it to us for free, which was a nice gesture. Our waitress wasn't extremely attentive, but there were also several groups at the restaurant because of a couple events in town. Overall, a good dining experience.

I have been coming to Biaggi's for several years. the food is always exceptional. The menu has good variety for every mood. But it is terribly noisy. I do request a booth but even that is noisy. Can you do more soundproofing. it is often difficult to hear the people at my own table!!!!

Great food but noisy.
The food and service was very good as usual. The house salad was very bland.though . It seemed to have no dressing. I think a salad should have more than just lettuce and shredded carrots. We love the atmosphere but usually forget how loud it can be, especially with large groups. Sound seems to travel to the point you can hardly hear your guest across the table. Otherwise we love the food and the excellent service! JM

Best Italian In town
As far as being the closest to real Italian food ... Biaggi's is the best. My Poppa was a Chef and we owned s few pretty famous Italian Restaurants in Miami, Florida, and Biaggi's stays as true to italian dining as is offered in our area.

We've been to Biaggi's many times and have, for the most part, always been pleased with our service. Raul was our server this last time and our service was excellent. Raul helped with our wine selection, did not rush us, engaged in conversation and was attentive without being pushy. Best service we have ever received at a restaurant anywhere.

Biaggi's is a place that you can count on to be consistant in it's many qualities!

My husband and I had a rare date night, and we were thrilled to go to Biaggi's. The server was very friendly and knowledgeable, the food came out quickly and steaming hot...a very nice experience

Now a Standard Family Restaurant
When we first arrived in Champaign-Urbana almost a decade ago, Biaggi's was on the list of "fancy" restaurants you would go to on a date. Now it is a family restaurant like Olive Garden. (We overheard a customer ask not to be seated next to a table with children, and that wasn't possible in our area. That having been said, all the children there were well behaved.) The food is good enough--especially the berry cobbler--but I was not impressed with my small portion steak (undercooked), which came with a piddling amount of roasted potatoes and carrots. Thankfully my husband and I were able to share the "small" house salad. In addition, our waiter was very attentive, and we tipped him generously.

We truly enjoy Biaggis in Champaign. The staff is preofesional and pleasant to work with. The food is very good.

The food and service was awesome as always!!! The lobster fettuccini was amazing. The bread pudding is addictive.

Great wine list, great service! Food has always been good. Main area is very noisy during peak hours.

We had been to Biaggi's - Champaign, and loved it, once before when we were visiting University of Illinois campus late last year. We wanted another special place to eat as a celebratory meal for this big day, move-in day. Our expectations were met and exceeded once again! Delicious Italian cuisine, great service in a pleasant atmosphere with quiet Italian background music. Will be going again soon.

I have eaten here before and it is consistently good. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food and the upscale ambiance. The ravioli is wonderful!

A young couple. We went for our anniversary on a Wednesday evening. The croud was largly older folks and some families. The environment is fairly open and brightly lit. Noise level wasn't bad, but higher than one might like for a romantic time. Food was great and staff were very good and accommodating. Good gluten free menu and GF flat-bread!

The Caesar Salad for $5.99 was very good and was PLENTY for 2 person.
Wife had Filet and it was very good.
I had Mahi - Mahi. It was huge and excellent.
If I ever am in area again I would return.

Wonderful atmosphere, fabulous service, delicious food. This is our fourth visit in the past few months. I have ordered the same dish three out of those four times, because it's excellent. Will continue to recommend this restaurant, again and again!

Food was excellent, waiter was great, and manager came by and checked on us!

new to Biaggi's
We were traveling and looked for a good Italian restaurant. It was rated highly locally and we decided the rating was well earned.
Our waiter forgot a salad order (and when the entrees arrived we decided it was just as well). The shift supervisor came by our table and insisted on serving us a complimentry dessert. We were pleased with the meal before the extra attention, but it didn't hurt.

We enjoy the food, live the focaccia bread, like the 1/2 portions of pasta options

The food was good. I wish they'd vary the selection more, but I've got my favorites, so I'm not going to stress too hard. However, the Noise Level selection isn't quite accurate. It was a good noise level when we first arrived, fairly quiet, but not so much that it's embarrassing to talk. But after about 5 minutes, it became crowded and loud. Not energetic, just loud.

Good experience at Biaggi's
Great food. Our waiter was a little distracted because it was so busy. Also fairly loud with several big groups celebrating birthdays etc.

Food was good, I tried the pork chops instead of a pasta dish and was impressed. The pork chops were very tender and moist and the side of vegetables were crisp tender. absoutely delicious.

always a lovely place for dinner
we always enjoy Biaggi's in Champaign. The food is well prepared and I love that they have an extended gluten-free menu.

Cosnsistent Food and Service
This regional chain does a great job with its Italian fare. The food quality and the service is always top notch. They should, however, stop training customers to dip their bread into olive oil. I think most of their customers know how to do that. This is a bit demeaning.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
BIAGGI'S IS ALWAYS HIGHEST ON OUR LIST OF PLACES TO EAT WHEN WE'RE IN CHAMPAIGN,IL OR BLOOMINGTON-NORMAL IL. WE LIKE THE ATMOSPHERE & SERVICE AS MUCH AS THE FOOD.

Have a lot of business lunches there and always a good experience.

Great variety, outstanding overall
One of the best places to dine in Champaign County. We had the soup of the day, Roasted Red Pepper & Leak Soup, handmade pizza, pasta, and a calzone. All were excellent! There is a wide variety of fine Italian including pasta, long standard Italian, seafood, and new inventive choices. The service is always outstanding as the must have a great training program. I'm always impressed at the quality.

You can count on a really good meal, nice atmosphere and friendly service. This is always a stop when we are in the Champaign area.

Birthday Dinner to Remember
I love Biaggi's and choose to eat there for many special occasions. Saturday was my wife's 40th birthday. I made reservations on Opentable.com and the arrangements were perfect. I asked for a table, not a booth, in a quiet spot near the back. When we arrive, we were taken to the perfect table. The meal was excellent and the service was very good.

Good meal, good service
A very enjoyable evening. The items we tried on the feature menu were excellent:, Malbec wine and pumpkin creme brûlée. The salmon is always good. Our server was great.
