    After reading many positive reviews, I thought I would give this Biaggi’s location a try. My sister and I both have Celiac, and we both got very sick (most likely due to cross contamination) after ordering off the gluten free menu and notifying the waitstaff of our condition. While the waitstaff reassured us that there were separate cooking surfaces and tools used in the kitchen, they made no note of our condition while taking our orders and appeared defensive when we asked questions about the cooking surfaces and tools used.

    They are generally celiac friendly and have an extensive GF menu. However we have gotten sick from cross-contamination more than once out of a couple dozen experiences there. My only general complaint is that it is often ridiculously loud in evenings at very hard to have a decent conversation. They cram too many big tables together and have almost no sound reduction surfaces.

    I love Biaggis! I have talked with numerous employees about their practices to prevent cross contamination and feel 100% safe eating there as a super sensitive Celiac. My favorite dish is the potato crusted tilapia.

    Safe for Celiacs! Ask for a fresh dish of Parmesan...ones on the table are contaminated.

    Since being diagnosed with celiac, biaggi's has been my go to place to eat with their two page menu of gluten free options. All of the servers I have had while dining in have been great and attentive to my needs.

    It was a shock to find that Biaggis has changed their service to those with celiac. They charge for their gluten free bread that used to automatically accompany the entrees. And some of the options have disappeared. It looks like they are withdrawing their support of those with gluten intolerance or allergy.

    WARNING: just learned that Biaggi's is now going to be charging for their gluten free side bread. They also changed their gluten free menu and got rid of their tube noodles and a few dishes and now just have a really bland spinach noodles (that was undercooked for us and had to be returned) that now only comes with a seafood, marinara, or Alfredo sauce. Contact and email corporate to make sure these changes are temporary! Unfair they want to now charge extra for those with allergies that want to dine there. If they wanted to make changes it should be to expand and better their gluten free menu, not scale it down and condense it. Luckily they still have other entrees that remain unchanged.

    While in Champaign for work at the last minute I learned there was a Biaggi's and was relieved. This location like the other one in Jackson, MS was wonderful. Knowledgeable and friendly staff that provided a quality and safe GF meal for someone with celiac away from home!!!

    The last time I was at Biaggi's the food was amazing. I was able to order off the Special's menu. I ordered a salmon fillet with a rosemary crust. It came with some buttered baby fingerling potatoes I think asparagus came with it too. It was amazing and gluten free!! We also had an appetizer of mussels in a champaign marinara. I love the gluten free bread too! I never feel like I have to compromise when I go there. There is always something I want and can have.

    Food was cold and tasted like something I could have warmed up from lean cuisine. Overpriced food with no quality. Try a nice downtown champaign restaurant like Destihl if you are looking for someplace nice.

    The service is always hit or miss here, and the gluten free menu is limited if you don’t want pasta or pizza. I love the GF flatbread and I really enjoy the chopped chicken salad. I’ve been eating here for 10+ years and have gotten sick only once or twice.

Salads, pastas, entrees, appetizers. Very knowledgeable staff. I has a salmon shrimp risotto, and my friend had the alfredo. They brought hot gf bread to us - prepared specifically for us.

    Always go there when visiting ISU, never had a problem until now. Had the GF chicken with spinach noodles. Half way through I noticed some regular full on gluten noodles on my plate. Needless to say, I was very sick and this caused me to miss most of my daughters graduation ceremony. Live and learn. Manager was concerned and comped my meal which was nice and unexpected unfortunately for me the damage could not be undone.

    Not so gluten free... I ate the gluten free bread and alfredo pasta. Then I was ill for the next 4 days because I ingested gluten. It was my first time eating here, this place is really cool and I was so excited to see their whole GF menu with so many options. But it was beyond disappointing. Not only did it ruin my weekend since I ate here Friday night, but I couldn't work Monday or Tuesday because I waz still so sick. If I had thought there was a chance of getting cross contaminated food I would have just eaten fish or steak. If the person who contaminated my food had to spend 4 days in bed (like I did) with a migraine, fever, body aches, skin rash, ringing ears, and irrationally bad moods, I am confident they would be more careful and never make that mistake in the future. The food tasted good enough, but certainly not worth the money or 4 days of torture it really cost. ** I am not diagnosed celiac. I can eat foods fried in the same oil as breaded options with no issue. If I ate a normal sized bite of gluten bread or pizza crust I would become violently ill and vomit within minutes. Therefore, the amount of cross contamination I experienced here was more than just cutting my bread with a contaminated knife and less than giving me the wrong kind of pasta. The only scenario I can think of is that they probably laid my GF bread on a wheat floured pan.

    I have eaten here twice recently - dinner one time and lunch another time- and had a good experience both times. They have a separate gluten free menu and the staff seems knowledgeable and attentive to dietary restrictions. Our server recommended the gluten free bread as an appetizer. It looks & tastes like flatbread. I don’t like most GF bread but this was delicious! For dinner I had a chicken dish and for lunch I ordered the beet & arugula salad with grilled chicken. Both were delicious and satisfying. I definitely recommend Biaggi’s!

My wife who has Celiac Disease and who is very sensitive in gluten foods. Has found this Restaurant to be the very best in offering a dedicated Gluten Free Menu. The Manger always checks on her to make sure she has the right prepared foods and that it’s right. The Gluten Free Food is awesome and taste great. We recommend this Restaurant to anyone.

    We were in town visiting family over the Thanksgiving holiday and decided to eat out while we were here. The waiter seemed somewhat familiar with the menu but couldn't answer some specifics about how it was prepared so I was a little hesitant to even order. I'm so glad that I did because it was excellent! I ordered the Burrata Caprese (appetizer) and it came with their in-house gluten free bread. The consistency was like flatbread and probably rice-based but it was just right with the other flavors in the dish. I'm very sensitive and had no reaction but would definitely make sure you indicate your level of sensitivity to your waiter. Would eat here again!

They also have an entire gluten free menu, prior to seating you they ask if their is anyone who needs a gluten free menu so you don’t have to ask and on top of that, they have gluten free meatballs!

    After reading the wonderful reviews, I called to ask my usual questions. Unfortunately the person who answered the phone could only tell me that they use separate pasta water and pizza trays, but not where any of the ingredients were stored, if the kitchen staff changes their gloves, or if the gluten free menu items are prepared separately from the gluten containing ones. She wasn't willing to find out or let me speak to a kitchen staff member, so I decided not to risk it. Maybe if I had called during a less busy time they would have been more willing to answer my questions. I'm not going to say they for sure are not celiac friendly, but definitely do your own research.
