Gluten Free Dining at Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano

Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano was named ‘best restaurant chain in America’ by Consumer Reports  in 2012. It offers gluten free meals in Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Mississippi, Minnesota, North Carolina, Nebraska, New York, Utah, and Wisconsin. You can find exact locations by clicking on a button at the top of the home page. Apparently each restaurant has its own gluten free menu, so choose your location first and then click on the menu.

The gluten free menus include this statement: “You may wish to call ahead for reservations and inform the host that you will need to order from the Gluten-Free Menu. Please inform the staff serving your table that your food needs to be wheat, oat, rye and barley-free. This menu is provided by Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano as a service to our guests. Biaggi’s assumes no responsibility for its use and any resulting liability or consequential damages are denied. Guests are encouraged to consider the information provided to their own satisfaction in light of individual needs and requirements.”

My comments: This statement tells you nothing except that the ingredients in specific dishes were gluten free at some point in the past. Unfortunately. Customer beware!

On the other hand, be aware that the award mentioned in the first paragraph involved restaurants of all types. Consumer Reports rated Biaggi’s “best restaurant chain in the nation.”

REMINDER: This article is not a full review of Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano. I focused solely on gluten free menu, the only thing that a potential customer can do without actually visiting a restaurant and speaking to the staff. If you choose to check out this restaurant personally, be sure to examine the gluten free menu. It may have changed since I wrote this article.
