Has anyone tried Biaggi's italian restaurant?

Edited to read: We have a chance to go to either Biaggi's or Maggiano's. Any experiences?

Seems like mostly upper midwest, and then a few other locations.

That's why I haven't heard of them then. Sorry I can't help.

So we had some time (read: extra time to go to the ER if we had the need) and wanted to try Maggiano's or Biaggi's. They are 2 local chain Italian restaurants near us.

My son with PA really has been begging to go to Maggiano's after we went to one on a summer trip. I prefer Biaggi's because the prices are the same, but the quality of food is sooo much better, and the fare is somewhat lighter in calories.

After calling and speaking with both restaurants, we decided to go with Maggiano's. (The person on the phone at Biaggi's said they don't have peanuts on their menu. They "thought" they didn't have peanut oil in the kitchen. The only thing they had was peanut butter sandwiches for the kids' menu. So I didn't feel like they were that aware.)

We got to Maggiano's and they sent their server over and she said she would ask the chef to come to our table. The chef comes out and he did such a good job with our son and explained that he had FA's as well and kept an epipen with him at all times. He was pleasant, competent, and so helpful. Our food arrived and was just great! We had lots of help with every step (ordering, meal service, dessert, packing up leftovers)and both chef and server made us feel as if they were actively working to make our food safely. We were comfortable and relaxed -as you can be when eating out with FA's.

Kudos to Maggiano's for providing us with one of the best dining experiences that a family with FA's can have!

WE went to a Maggiano's last summer. I posted about it then. We were just so pleased with the service regarding DS's allergy. It was like eating at Disney.

My son has PA only. Avoids nuts, except for almonds which have been processed without cross contamination with peanut (Blue Diamond almonds).

We went to Maggiano's in Dallas a couple years ago -- WONDERFUL time! They were excellent. We will go back whenever we head that way. Glad you had a wonderful experience as well. Smiley
