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.

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!

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.

Loved it! I got there after my party and they had a GF menu waiting for me. When it was my turn to order the waiter glanced down, saw my menu and noted it before I even said anything. I clarified that I have an allergy and he said not to worry, they’ve got it covered. I ordered spaghetti and meatballs. The noodles were a spinach fettuccini noodle and were delicious. There was no weird texture or flavor, they tasted like a normal noodle. And the sauce...amazing. Highly recommend!

It was very nice. Gluten free menu & gf bread($1 per 4 pieces). I had a roasted beet salad and it was very good. My husband had the gf chicken parmesan, the pasta wasn't cooked quite enough but was edible. I know all too well over cooked gf pasta turns to mush so I'm sure they were just being cautious.

Love the food, I go here all the time when I want good pasta. The gluten free bread is so good and only $1. I really love that the prices are the same as on the regular menu, it bothers me that most places you have to pay extra for having a food allergy. Would 100% recommend this place to anyone!

Staff was knowledgeable about Celiac and Gluten Free. They use separate water for gluten free pasta and pans for pizza

Staff said that they have a limited menu, during the Pandemic, but I felt there were several options available, Pizza, pasta and salad. The quality of the food was fantastic, great flavor, we will be eating here again. My son has Celiac Disease along with several other allergies. The Manager took the time to talk to me on the phone and let me know what would be safe for him. Food order was ready in 20 minutes, we had an excellent Mother's Day Meal, my son enjoyed it, most importantly he did not get sick after eating his meal. (he is very sensitive to gluten and can tell within 10 minutes if there is gluten in his food). We had a great experience and will be back!

We were not impressed by our server, but the food was fine. For example, we had to ask him if they still offered GF table bread like we had read online (pretty sure it was just their pizza dough, so, unexciting). But the spinach fettucine with meatballs was good, and gelato was a nice dessert. And I didn’t get sick

NOT SAFE for celiacs. I dined here a couple of times without issue. Then, a few weeks ago, I dined here again and got extremely sick. I ordered the GF brown rice pasta with GF bread. There’s too much of a risk of CC for me to come back.

The staff seemed knowledgeable and made me feel safe about my food. The waiter gave me an order that I had not asked for with the same sauce but different meat. I asked him and he made it sound like I could only get the sauce with this meal so he range it up and it had sausage instead of chicken.... I should’ve known. I asked if it was still gluten free and he assured me it was safe. I ate almost the whole thing and gave my friend some to try because I was finished. She made a face and was like that does not taste like any gf noodle I’ve ever had. We look over and I notice my other friends noodles looked exactly like mine. So the friend that tried my noodle asked to try hers and it was the same consistency. Sure enough a few hours later I get the sickest I’ve been since diagnosis. If you decide to go here ASK FOR A MANAGER!

The largest gluten free menu I’ve ever seen, and the best gluten free menu I’ve experienced. Ask for the gluten free bread to start. It’s phenomenal with the oil and parmesan cheese. And the amount of pasta dishes is overwhelming but I decided with Penne Chicken Alfredo, and subbed penne noodles with fettuccine noodles and it was hands down the best Alfredo I’ve ever had. There was no problems with cross contamination or non gluten free noodles in my dish. And there’s enough to have left overs for a second meal. Also prices are reasonable, staff is friendly, and interior is clean and ascetically pleasing. I would give Biaggi’s 10 stars if I could.

We have been going here occasionally since they first opened. We prefer supporting local, non-chain restaurants but this one is an exception for us. Most visits have been good but a couple times we have had terrible service. There seems to be a high turnover rate of servers but I don’t think that’s uncommon in the industry. The food has never been bad, though. Their separate gluten free menu is great with many options. We’ve had almost everything on it. We really appreciate the GF bread option. In the summer months I prefer to get the Parmesan Crusted Chicken Milano Salad (pictured). It’s so good and is enough food for two meals for me. In the colder months I usually get the GF spinach pasta alfredo dish. My mom loves the salmon. My husband loves the tilapia. If you have room for dessert the creme brûlée is good!

Their gf menu looked like a smaller version of their regular menu, so no copy paper or having to cross reference with the regular menu for descriptions & lots of options. Our server brought us gf bread with our gf menus. I had chicken parmigiana with cream sauce served with pasta, it was the best Italian meal I have had in a long time, Wish I lived in Omaha so I could try all the menu options.

Ordered a gluten free chicken parm. Cut up chicken and almost took a bit before I realized Noodles were yellow. Having eaten here before and knowing GF noodles here are green I asked for manager to confirm this was GF? He said it was not. They brought the wrong dish entirely.
