Exemplary Italian Food & Relaxing Atmosphere At Biaggi’s

Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano in Perrysburg’s Levis Commons is not just another Italian restaurant. While sunshine mixed with snow and arctic cold temperatures prevailed outside, inside Biaggi’s offered a charming, warm and relaxing backdrop. A separate bar area, aside the main dining room, offers a full wine and liquor selection with craft cocktails.

Warm and welcoming

This casual restaurant offers an extensive array of pastas, soups, salads, pizza, seafood, steaks and desserts for all tastes. With booths and tables easily accessible in the cleverly decorated dining room, the hostess greeted us and graciously accommodated our seating preference. As welcoming wait staff moved through the dining area, our server, Chandler, highlighted the special features that change every two to three weeks, offering consistent variety. A complimentary basket of warm bread accompanied olive oil and grated cheese for dipping.

We sampled dates wrapped in Applewood Smoked Bacon, finished in a maple-balsamic vinegar glaze ($8.99). Twelve dates, served in a piping hot cast iron pan, provided a melt-in-your-mouth moment.

Biaggi's Ravioli

Flavorful pasta dishes with distinct textures included Rigatoni Bolognese, a generous bowl of pasta, traditional meat sauce and Italian sausage; Three Cheese Alfredo with plenty of Parmigiano Reggiano grated cheese; and a satisfying bowl of Butternut Squash Ravioli, beautifully presented with toasted walnuts, diced squash and plenty of grated cheese in a sage-brown butter sauce, ($12.99 each).

Savor the moment

Biaggi’s seating capacity was full during the lunch rush as guests enjoyed food and conversation with business associates, friends and family. The casual atmosphere also lends itself to a leisurely meal. Perhaps plan for 60-90 minutes, which is the time we took for our meal, with conversation, beverages, three courses of food and dessert.

Nearing the end of the meal we wanted something sweet. White chocolate bread pudding, made with brioche bread and topped with a white chocolate sauce, did not disappoint with a generous portion, more than enough for sharing. The decadent delight, served warm with sprinkled chocolate shavings and fresh strawberries, made for a sweet finale ($7.99).

Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano also offers gluten free choices, gift cards, carry out options, private event rooms for those special moments, a well balanced array of services for today’s life, work and play opportunities.

Biaggi’s is the right atmosphere for an array of diners — special dates, anniversary celebrations, family dinners, couples gatherings, a ladies lunch, business lunches, grandparent/grandkids dates. The lunch and dinner menus provide similar selections, with portion sizes and prices adjusted accordingly.

Reservations are accepted. Parking (free), has access by the front doors to four handicap spots and a handful of general parking spots or pull up to the front door to drop off guests before parking in the lot behind the facility. There is no valet parking. Biaggi’s, a privately held company, has expanded since opening in Bloomington, IL in 1999, currently operating 19 locations in nine states.

The Bottom Line

The pleasure of finding the difference! True Italian flavor where food speaks with your palate. Life is too short for average food so eat, drink and lounge!
