Italian food

A dear friend and I met for dinner last night at Biaggi's. YUM! I had not been there thus far, so I was excited to try it out. I can happily report that the food there is DELICIOUS and reasonably priced. YAY!

We got there at about 6:30 p.m. on a Wednesday, and we were immediately seated. (At first, they tried to seat us in an out-of-the-way location, but we piped up and were re-directed to a comfy booth in the middle of the dining room.) The restaurant is decorated in cozy, warm colors, and everything appears comfortable and golden due to the gorgeous lighting.

As soon as we were seated, our sweet waiter (Ethan) appeared with menus. He made some wine suggestions, we ordered drinks, and off he went to get them. We'd chosen red wines, and we both ordered seafood pastas off the menu. I had the lobster fettuccine, and it was DIVINE. Beautiful, tender ribbons of dark pasta, liberally coated with lobster cream sauce. Chunks of lobster were hidden like pearls throughout the dish. Dear Lord. I could eat it OFTEN. To accompany, I scarfed down plenty of chewy bread and took many many sips of wine.

For dessert, we split the cannoli, which was ok but not super, with two cups of yummy decaf. When I return, I will pick a different dessert; there were TONS of great-looking choices.

With the wine, pasta entree, and the dessert and coffee (which I sprang for), my bill came to $30. Not too bad for such a nice meal. I'll be back!

I highly recommend their bread pudding. It's yummy and it's HUGE.
