Lovely restaurant close to U of M and University of St. Thomas. Convenient parking in dedicated lot. Excellent, but limited menu. There are not that many items on the menu, but everyone in our party enjoyed their meals, we had a veal dish, linguine with clams, a chicken Marsala, and a delicious pasta carbonara. Fresh bread with olive oil, but... More

The food is very good. A slightly creative take in classic Italian dishes. The goat cheese torta is a house favorite - delicate and lovely flavored as are the pasta dishes. The prices are a little high for just an entree with no salad or soup. The biscotti was soft and didn't taste fresh, but other desserts were good. Service... More

Enjoyed the pastrami sandwich and the turkey panini for a recent lunch. Easy access and parking in back of building. Nicely located between the two downtown areas just off I-94. Service very good. Good atmosphere. Tables somewhat close together so conversations aren't too private.

Love Caffe Biaggio. It's the best of small restaurants, with an attentive proprietor, an excellent kitchen, and attractive, comfortable dining spaces.

Cannot say enough good about this restaurant! I highly recommend the beet salad, housewife cheese ravioli with vodka cream rosa sauce, and biscotti with coffee for the dessert. Excellent!

This is one of our local favorites. The Italian food is great and tastes like it's straight out of Italy. We go on Mondays, where they have "Date Night" a 3 course meal and bottle of wine for $50. The menu is limited, but we still find something delicious! Highly recommend for Monday date nights!

I go here for the salad and the atmosphere. Like that it is also a place where's you can hear your table mates. Don't feel rushed either.

We live in the neighborhood but hadn't been here in years. It was superb. Quality of food, prices, ambience and service all excellent. Art work is beautiful. Temperature of the food served was wonderfully hot. Wait staff was a tad over formal for my liking and room temperature bordered on warm. We were seated in an alcove and the main... More

The atmosphere is great and awesome location but on a weeknight the parking lot was full because the lot is shared with other businesses. The food was OK but not great for the high prices. We were here to celebrate a birthday and the dessert was disappointing. Our biggest complaint was the service. Our waiter acted annoyed that he had... More
