Italian
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."

I would have given a higher rating.Food amazing.Waiter very good however upon entering restaurant no one to greet us or at door to walk us to a table.Did not know it was self seating! So surprised for a better restaurant that you would not be greeted or escorted to a table.We had reservations.What if we had wanted or someone else would have wanted a special room?table? Waiter? Not a great way to start out a anniversary dinner!

What’s the point of making a reservation and they stick you in the bar. The said we could wait for a table. I thought I had a reservation for a table!

Have been to the restaruant several times. Always great service. Presentation of food special.
I ordered sea bass from the menu, I was informed it was unavaible but I was given the option of either sole or sword fish which I could have prepared the same way. I went with the sole and was not disappointed.
Have reservation for next month for our anniversary already.

Very good food for a reasonable price. Service was disjointed when we arrived, however, as the evening progressed, it got decidedly better. Would recommend this restaurant to a friend. Next time, we would like to sit in the terrace room.

Went for dinner and had a great meal. Had 2 appetizers- buratta with tomato was outstanding. The buratta was probably the best I’ve ever had. Tomatoes could have been better/riper/tastier given that it was tomato season. And also had the broccoli rabe and sausage appetizer- the greens were cooked perfectly ( stems and leaves). Flavor was really good and sausage was good as well. For dinner I had lamb shank with cavatelli which was very good. Only downside for me was the use of rosemary. I know it’s traditional but personally I just don’t like it. My wife had the lobster ravioli. The sauce was a pink sherry cream sauce which was really good. The 5/6 ravioli were large and filling. The filling was all lobster meat. The taste seemed a bit fishy for us but was good. Also had the apple tart dessert which was topped with vanilla gelato and whip cream. Excellent end to the meal!!!

the Restaurant was lovely, broken up into several rooms, but it was quite noisy..
Our waiter was very friendly and competent.
We were a group of 4 and each chose a different dish.
We began the meal with a house wine, which was very nice and a crusty Italian bread.

My friends chose a shrimp dish, which was loaded with shrimp. She thoroughly enjoyed it.
Her husband and mine had Zuppa de pesche which was very tasty.

I had the veal chop, though I had looked forward to having Ossobucco, which they were out of
The chop as very large and delicious

As we were quite full, we declined dessert, but were given a small cookie, complementary.

Food was delcious, served quickly and hot. We had Veal Picatta Biagio and Frutti Du Mare - both excellent! Several servers attended to our every need, efficiently and politely - from keeping water glasses filled, taking wine and dinner order, clearing, etc. Went on a Saturday night but noise level was fine, restaurant was busy but not crowded. Had a very nice evening.

Dining at Biagio's is something we always look forward to. The staff is welcoming and the quality of the dinners are consistently excellent. We always look forward to celebrating special occasions at this restaurant or simply coming during the week. We would highly recommend Biagio's and will continue to return.

The initial service at the restaurant was appalling. The waiter was apparently assigned to two different rooms which made for a disastrous combination. Fortunately, it picked up and our waiter Carlos was very good. We were a bit surprised to see the amount charged on the bill for one entree was $2.00 more than listed on the menu. The other entrees may have been incorrect, but we had to leave so we did not get the chance to compare the check with the menu price. All in all a good experience with ample portions.

Food is always good, however they were out of the first 3 items that were ordered at 6:30 on a Sunday. One item on menu they were out of that last time we were there and Apparently is no longer available but still listed on menu. Was a disappointing evening
