I love Biaggi’s, but this location was an absolute joke. First, they brought out a dish made with gluten pasta (I have had their GF penne before and this was NOT GF). I took a bite, quickly realizing the mistake and stopped eating. I informed them that it was gluten pasta and was told that I was wrong. The (presumably) manager came over and showed me two separate unmarked noodles to prove me wrong. They proceeded to begrudgingly bring me the dish with the fettuccini instead. When they did they brought something totally different than I ordered and argued with me when I said it was wrong. Nothing further was done, and I had to pay for something I couldn’t eat. An absolute joke.

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 many times and done very well with no reaction. I ate here last night and ordered a gluten free sausage and mushroom pizza and have been sick ever since. No let Celiac friendly bc they said after the fact they don’t switch out pans for pizzas and it may be cut with contaminated knife/board. Ouch.

Best meal I have had since being diagnosed. I asked for the gf menu and the waitress brought me out gluten free bread!! It was the best gf bread I've ever tasted and the pasta meal was delicious.

The menu was expansive and impressive! I would have given them a 6 star rating if I could expect for one major problem, they accidentally gave me a non-gluten free dish. The waiter was horrified when he saw me eating it because he knew I had severe Celiac disease. I tried to throw up right away but couldn't. The manager was extremely apologetic and gave me a gift card. That's very nice but Im so sick that I know I will need to take off work... so a gift card isn't really much considering the long term effects of that mistake.

Awesome! I ordered a gf pepperoni pizza with gf Alfredo sauce. The server brought it out and said the chef was making a new one because he didn't like the way it looked. My husband and I thought it was very tasty. We each had a piece of the second one which was also very tasty. The manager comped deserts for us since it took a little longer. The crime brûlée was also delicious! Service was great and everyone was knowledgable. The flatbread was also delicious! I highly recommend!

Maybe we went on a bad day, but our server didn't have any information about how the gluten free foods were prepared and no interest in gathering accurate information for us. He did go ask if the gf pasta was cooked in different water and came back and told us it was, but they couldn't guarantee that gluten wouldn't get in our food anyways. Neither my daughter or I cared for the gf bread at all. We both felt horrible after eating and believe we were glutened. Her gf noodles weren't prepared well. Some were hard and others were ok. We were really hoping for a great experience!

I absolutely loved Biaggi's! Their gluten-free menu is huge compared to most other restaurants, and their food is great. I liked the GF bread, even though it was an extra $1. I can't wait to go back and try everything. They even had GF pizza.

Loved this restaurant before, but now having to eat gluten-free, love it even more! The gluten-free bread is served flatbread style, served warm, it's amazing! I would swear it was not gluten-free. What a treat! Well worth the $1.00 charge. They have great food, excellent service, very accomodating and friendly staff and management.

Best restaurant for Celiacs hands down! Great, large menu- never felt sick from their food and I am very sensitive! It does cost a dollar now for gluten free bread, but it's worth it!

They do have gf food but I have alway gotten cross contamination when I have gone. This was all pre-pandemic and went once for take out during the pandemic and I still had the same issues. I would get the gf spinich pasta with chicken and Alfredo sauce and order some gf bread. My guess is it was the gf bread because it is probably heated in an oven where gluten food is also cooked.

Wowowow if you cannot eat gluten, you must come here. They have gluten free bread (no seriously that never happens) and it is delicious!!!! It isn’t like baguette but a flatbread. I can’t even explain it though because it is so good and soft but crunchy. I forgot to take a picture because I ate all of it. I ordered the margherita pizza and the marinara penne for dinner. I’ll update with how it was. Ok just finished eating. I’m going to need to be rolled out of here. SO FREAKING YUMMY! I’m so happy with my meal although not the best choice to eat dairy … whoops we all have our cheat days!!! The waitress (she’s amazing) is checking to see if there is gluten free dessert. And the verdict is: creme brulee, sorbet, and gelato!! I ordered the blood orange sorbetto will update with my thoughts.

Did carryout for GF pasta with cheese sauce and when we got home and opened it up it was gluten pasta with Alfredo sauce with chicken. My celiac daughter was so sad. We only went there to get the GF pasta for her. We have eaten here many times inside the restaurant and it’s always been good but now we will not do carry out ever again. Too risky.

Ate here for lunch with my husband yesterday. He ordered the salmon and shrimp risotto, I got the chicken and sausage. When we sat down, our waitress noticed right away that we had gluten-free menus and did not set bread down at the table. She offered is fresh gluten-free bread/pizza dough for the table. It was delicious!

When my meal came, I noticed the potatoes that were supposed to be on the plate were not there. I asked our waitress who checked with the chef. The chef did not put the potatoes on due to cross-contamination and did not want me to get sick so offered different safe sides instead. I got mashed potatoes. I felt great knowing he took that extra precaution. The food was great and we will definitely be eating here again.

No gluten reaction, and I’m extremely sensitive (celiac)!
