The best part of doing my restaurant profile column is the incredibly nice people I get to meet. The owners of Biagetti’s Restaurant in West Haven certainly fall into this category without a doubt. The Biagetti family has owned this very popular restaurant for 24 years. Biagetti’s is located on the corner of Campbell Avenue & Captain Thomas Blvd. in West Haven and has been in the family for generations. I originally profiled the restaurant in 2007 and felt it was time to revisit this spot as it is definitely one of the best kept secrets in West Haven.
I am happy to report that Biagetti’s food is better than ever. The family is proud of serving the best quality food and offering great service. All the steaks are aged and hand cut featuring a special 44 ounce Tomahawk along with 32 ounce Porterhouse, Kansas City, Cowboy and Prime Steaks. Biagetti’s is one of the few restaurants that still believes in giving you a full course dinner including warm bread, homemade soup, house or Caesar salad with all homemade dressings, including entrée’s served with pasta or potato & vegetable. In addition, the restaurant is tastefully decorated in a casual Victorian style with beautifully set tables and my favorite “linen napkins”. The spacious outdoor patio includes seating for dinner and a full bar. Biagetti’s menu consists of Italian American cuisine with unbelievable portions, which were patterned after the “typical traditional Italian dinner”.
Biagetti’s serves dinner from Tuesday – Sunday offering a wide variety of Italian, Seafood, Chicken, and Veal. The Chefs noted that Biagetti’s is well known for its veal dishes using only milk fed Leg of Veal that is boned down on site. All sauces & soups are made from scratch along with the salad dressings. I fell in love with their family recipe house dressing which has an oil & vinegar base. Biagetti’s also offers tomato & Gorgonzola, raspberry vingarette, & Caesar dressings all made in house. Biagetti’s offers a tempting dessert menu including delicious Crème Bulee Cheesecake, Raspberry Linzer Torte, Vanilla Cannoli Cake, Chocolate Decadence, Fresh Fruit Tart, Carrot Cake, just to name a few favorites. Biagetti’s features a very affordable wine list with a wide range of whites, reds, blush, & sparkling wines. Biagetti’s can accommodate parties from 20 to 100 for any occasion including bridal & baby showers, weddings, anniversary & birthday parties, Bereavement luncheons. All banquet entrees include house salad, bread, pasta, potato, vegetable, dessert & coffee. Other offerings for private parties include brunch, buffet, hors’doeuvres, pasta bar, raw bar & carving station. A wide range of take-out catering trays are available for home or office special events.
Biagetti’s portions are extremely generous and the prices are so reasonable. The staff goes above & beyond to tend to your every need. During my most recent visit to Biagetti’s, I discovered that the staff know most of the customers by their first name. It definitely shows that this family knows how to do it right as Biagetti’s has many regular customers.
