Daughter's Treat Eating Out

Last Thursday my daughter Meghan treated me to a wonderful evening out at Biaggi's Ristorante Italiano at Levis Commons in Perrysburg, Ohio. Levis Commons is considered one of the finer shopping malls in NW Ohio. It has a lot of specialty stores. Biaggi's is a casual eating experience, but the atmosphere is very tasteful and lovely. Meghan had made reservations for 7:30pm and we were to meet a couple of her friends, Steve and his wife Adaire.


You can't find this restaurant, or as they call it "ristorante", in all the states of the US. They do have a website www.biaggis.com where you can check them out. I noticed they are located as far West as Colorado, and East as New York, North in Minnesota, South in Mississippi . Mainly they are located in the central plains states, including Illinois, Indiania, Ohio. Actually to this date they are only in 11 states.


Meghan being too serious, girl, where is that SMILE! Maybe she is realizing that she invited me out and is paying for my meal, LOL!


So now you see how terrible I am with my camera.......this is when I remembered to take a picture of the food......


Let me explain what this was, they have this buttery olive oil they spread on a plate and then they add Parmesan Cheese and they have their homemade specialty breads that are cut like biscotti and you dip your bread in this and it is so goooooood! Kinda like a little appetizer to keep you from starving to death before the meal comes.


This was the second go round on that. Everyone wanted seconds and this time I remembered to snap a pic.


I ordered the Farfalle Alfredo (recipe is on the website) which was so good I forgot my camera again, and right in the middle of everyone's eating I yelled, "STOP! I forgot to get a picture of what everyone is eating!" Everyone was so good natured to put their forks and spoons down so I could take a few pictures.


Steve and Adaire got the spaghetti and meatballs. From my vantage point I was not able to get a good enough photo of how big a bowl that meal came in. If I can compare it, I would say take a good sized salad bowl and you kinda get the idea of how huge a portion.


Meghan got the crab cakes which she said were so tender and delicious. I really wish I would have had the good sense to remember to take the pictures before we all started to demolish our meals, but I think you get the idea. The food was good, the company was fun and the overall evening was a hit. It was the first time I had ever been to that place and would go back again should I get the chance. Thank you Meghan for a very nice evening.

Next month on Roger's birthday the girls and I are going out to eat at a place called Mancies in Toledo. I guess it is another good eatery and Meghan says that if her dad were still alive he would have loved eating there. We will see, I'll get back to you on that. ♥
