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.

Server indicated that there is not a separate prep space. Ordered a flatbread and Nima sensor found gluten.

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.

My number one gf restaurant across three states so far. Gf Bread was amazing. My chicken dish amazing. But my daughter hated the salmon. They seem to understand cross contamination issues and have a wide variety of gf options. Outdoor area beautiful! ❤❤❤

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!

I called first before placing an order and was told they use separate pans and pots to cook and prep the food. I was also told that they would change gloves and had a separate place to fix the food. I did order at an off time so I cannot speak to rush hour but I did not get sick and the food was good even after driving home.

Not only is this my favorite gluten free restaurant in Omaha, it's my favorite on Earth. They can bring you out gluten free bread before the meal which they always notice immediately when you're using their GF menu. They have pasta and Pizza available mainly. It's a scratch kitchen so everything is very customizable. The pasta is just top of its class. Waiters are always knowledgeable about celiacs. I can always trust I'll be safe here.

I love biaggi’s! I’ve gone many times since my celiac diagnosis and always am so impressed. I got take out tonight, and although it wasn’t as good as dining in (I live 30 mins from the restaurant) it was still good! The one problem is they marked my moms regular food as gf and didn’t mark my celiac dad’s pizza as gf. My food was marked gf. We knew the pizza was gf though as we’ve been there before.

I had the chicken parmesan and it was very good!
