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. What a treat! Well worth the $1.00 charge. They have great food, excellent service, very accomodating and friendly staff and management.
We have eaten many items off the GF menu, tested with our Nima Tester and all were found to be 100% GF. We eat here very often and enjoy everything we’ve eaten. We even catered a holiday 100% GF from them and it was fantastic! As a Celiac with 3 children who also have this disease, this is a big family favorite!
Staff were very nice and seemed knowledgeable. They said they have been dealing with gluten free for the past 11 years and even knew that I was celiac. They have a separate space for cooking things however the gluten-free bread brought to the table tested positive for gluten with my Nima and my GF pasta also came back positive for gluten. Sadly I won’t be back
Loved this restaurant, they had a gluten free menu and our waitress was very knowledgeable about gluten. I had one the best gluten free meals since I've been diagnosed. Also on our leftovers they put gluten free stickers on mine to not get mixed up with my husband's gluten leftovers.
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. Someone who would not have known this would have gotten very ill. Will not eat here again.
Ate here a few times and had a great experience! Celiac safe. GF Pizzas, pastas and a nice selection of options. Highly recommend if you’re on the area. Edit: Came back recently and was served a salad with croutons twice in one week (accidentally) even though the server flagged it each time. Very apologetic staff but a little unnerving
The foods alright but not great. They have some nice options at a decent price and I haven't gotten sick from eating here. So, if you're out with friends in the area and need an option it's not a bad choice. It wouldn't be my first choice though.
Wow! Cannot day enough good things about this restaurant. So accommodating, full gluten free menu. Not sure how the pizzas are cooked so not marking as celiac safe but must try!!!!!!! Wish there was one closer to me.
Excellent!!!! Delicious and great sevice
Never gotten sick but I stick to the basics...GF pasta with sauce.
I was in town visiting family and decided to give this place a try because of the great reviews! It’s didn’t disappoint! The bread was great and a perfect portion for 1 gf person. I had the Chicken Alfredo and it was amazing! I haven’t been able to find great Italian in a while. Will definitely be back!
This place had excellent service and the food was delicious. They brought me some gf bread which I’m pretty sure is their pizza dough bread. It’s very thin but had a nice flavor. I’d go back for sure.
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.
Large separate GF menu with many many options. 1st visit May 2017 I had the chicken Marsala with mashed potatoes and spinach. Fantastic! Also ask for GF flat bread for table. I'll definitely be returning! Visit # 2 Oct 2018; SEA SCALLOP RISOTTO Seared Sea Scallops, Creamy Italian Rice with Asparagus, Corn, Cranberries and Pancetta, Basil-Leek Reduction, Red Pepper Aioli, Lump Crab This dish was highly recommended by waitress and I was not disappointed. Phenomenal Flavors!!!
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.
The staff was very knowledgeable about their gluten free menu. Our waiter Deborah was very nice. Gf bread for oil and Parmesan was amazing. Gf pasta and meatballs was very good. Will come back. Ask for Deborah!!
AMAZING! I have Celiac disease and did not feel sick after eating! The staff was very knowledgeable about my disease, and they took great precautions. They even have gluten free bread to bring out as an appetizer! Their gluten free menu selection is absolutely wonderful. I will always come eat here when I am in town!
Best gluten free dining experience in Fort Wayne...friendly, helpful, gfree menu, always surprised by gfree bread (which was delicious- like a flatbread), and the chicken parmigiana is better than I make at home...delicious!
We were in town and needed to eat... when we saw gf Italian I got excited. Absolutely lovely. The ambience was intimate. We had a separate menu with multiple options. 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.
The staff was very knowledgeable about a gluten allergy. My daughter (Celiac) received a gluten free menu and the waitress put in an order for GF bread right away. My daughter liked the bread and her meal, including the Creme brûlée for dessert! Would definitely return and recommend to others with Celiac Disease.
Waitress was,very knowledgeable about how specials would be made GF and offered even before I asked. Made me feel good about being there. Had the chicken parm from the GF menu. Bread was more of a pizza crust and they charge $1 a piece so probably will skip next time.
