    Fantastic GF Parmesan-crusted chicken and spinach linguine! They were very careful and made sure that my food was separate from the gluten-containing entrees. I've been here twice and haven't had a problem. Will be back soon!

    I've eaten here many, many times over the years and have never gotten sick. Plus, the food is great! The only small negative is that they started charging for the gluten free bread (but the regular bread is still free). I'd rather that they charge for the gluten free bread than not have it, but it would be nice if they gave you the first GF bread for free.

    I love this place! I have celiac and get sick if there is any cross contamination . this restaurant is my go to for date nights. they have a separate gf menu with lots of options, gluten free creme brulee for dessert, and even will bring you a gluten free bread (flat pancake style but pretty tastey!).

    Good food. Knowledgeable staff. I do wish they would do something to mark their food as GF. They have separate food servers (not your waiter or waitress) and on 2 occasions they have mixed up the orders at the table. Two of our family members order the same dish - but one get is GF and the other regular. Thankfully we eat there enough to be able to recognize the GF pasta from the gluten pasta. But if you didn't catch it, it could be disastrous. It could all be avoided if they marked their GF plates. It would make you feel safer knowing everyone from the wait staff to the kitchen staff to the delivery person all agreed that the food was GF. I know some restaurants use different kinds of plates and others use some sort of GF marker/tag. Either way works great to make you feel safer.

    I am at odds with this restaurant. Due to work, I spent 3 weeks in the area and frequented Biaggi's four times during my time in Peoria. The reason that I am at odds with Biaggi's is that the service and food was inconsistent. The first and third visits were good, as the service was prompt and ok. The second and last visits left a little to be desired with the service and food. One of the best things that Biaggi's has going for it is their gluten free bread, which is $1 up-charge, which if you have to eat GF, this is pretty common. As for the rest of the menu, the salads were decent. The biggest issue that I had with the pasta. It wasn't bad tasting, not the best I've ever had and certainly not even close to the worst. The penne, didn't seem to cook correctly each time in that some of the noodles ended up mushy and other parts were firm. The GF spaghetti ok, but a little bland. Make sure that you check your pasta prior to eating due to cross contamination from other non-GF noodles. On two separate occasions, I had a few pieces of regular pasta mixed into my meal. I understand that cross contamination can happen and that the management did make sure that the meals were cooked correctly on the second attempt, but additional training may need to be done, such as making sure that you clean out the pan prior to making a GF dish.

    I loved Biaggi's before I discovered I was allergic to wheat. And I was concerned it might not be the same without the pasta and bread... Boy was I wrong! They have an absolutely amazing parmesan crusted chicken salad and they even make gf bread! Delicious !

    My all-time favorite! This is always my choice for any dinner or celebration. LOVE all the options and the gluten-free pasta is AMAZING! They can be pricey, so I try to save it for special occasions. Oh yeah, and their Baked Cappuccino dessert (cappuccino mousse, flourless chocolate cake and whipped cream) is to die for - and I don't like coffee or coffee-flavored things. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this restaurant!

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!

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.

They actually had a pretty big GF menu that included all the sauces that would work. When our server found out my son was GF after bringing out the bread, she gave us the option of GF. They actually made it fresh, it was a kind of flat bread. He LOVED it!

    When I first began eating gluten free, Biaggis was recommended to me. They have great gluten free bread ($1.00 extra) that they brought out completely separate from any other bread. I also got a house salad and gluten free pizza for my meal. I felt that they took the time to ensure nothing was cross contaminated and the food was delicious.
