This place has great food and service. I especially like that I can get a smaller order of any of their pasta dishes (and they're not just standard Italian). Great bar and fair prices. Very comfortable room.

I think the interior of this restaurant is beautiful. I have eaten dinner there several times to celebrate special events with my wife. It is a high end, expensive place to eat very well prepared food. The wait staff is fast and efficient. I have always been pleased with the pasta dishes that I have ordered. There is free parking...

This place was built up pretty big (to me) before actually having lunch there. Nice atmosphere, good staff, and the food was pretty good. Being pretty good in the kitchen myself, I often put my standards a little higher when paying for food that such a reputable place offers. Although Biaggi's is good, I found it to be a little...

My family had been stuck in a rut and wanted something new. We tried Biaggi's. It was hot and delicious. Great red sauce. The bread was filled twice and I left wanting to come back.

Biaggis is always a good place to take a client, enjoy lunch or dinner, and get a sense of Italiano in Des Moines, West Des Moines actually. Food is always better than expected, servers are occasionally still learning the ropes. That said, the food is the reason I come.

Very nice food and atmosphere. My sister and I had very tender and tasty steaks. My husband had scallops, though he thought the seasoning overwhelmed the scallops. Don't be taken aback by the bread they serve if you see dark or moist nuggets in it - they use their leftover garlic mashed potatoes and red onion in it. The bread... More

I got a to-go order and the main entrée was great but after I dipped my bread in the oil and took a bite I saw a big hair floating in the cup. Picked up order Monday evening at 4:45.
