Had a pasta dish for dinner, they offered nice specials of the day also. Food was good and reasonably priced my husband had perch, which is usually only served on Fridays, but was able to have made for him on Saturday evening

I've been to this restaurant on several occasions. For lunch, dinner and for a wedding and baby shower. Each time, the atmosphere, food, wait staff and availability of the rooms available has been very accommodating.

Balagio is my family's go-to spot for fine Italian for many reasons. 1- the food is simply fantastic 2- family friends work at the restaurant 3- the service and atmosphere is great. I highly recommend trying their gnocchi or cavatelli pasta, though everything on the menu is equally delicious. Love this restaurant.

A nice, neighborhood casual restaurant/bar. I would suggest requesting a table by the windows away from the bar for better opportunity for conversation. Also, earlier is less crowded and, therefore, there is less noise. The service was very attentive and friendly. The martini was perfectly mixed, the wine list more than adequate and the extensive menu offers a good variety... More

The food was outstanding. The portions were enough for a meal the next day. The prices are very reasonable. The service was excellent. I just can't say enough. A great dining experience.

They do a great banquet luncheon, served family style, with a great salad, lemon chicken, pasta, sausage & peppers & a veggie. Sad occasion but the service & food certainly made better.

Menu ha d a great variety even if you didn't want Itaian. Went to the restaurant with a reservation and 13 people. Everyone had a great meal and pretty good service. I felt our waiter was great but spread a litte thin. A couple service related items bumped the rating to 4 star. We wanted 4 checks and they would... More
