Friday night we had dinner for the second time at Caffe Biaggio located 15-20 minutes away from our house. We decided to splurge for a change. Another new favorite of ours, to be sure. I can’t say enough good things about this place. We asked for the same waiter that we had the first time we had dinner there. Adel is a fine waiter indeed. After asking for a wine suggestion, he asked what I liked then offered a wine from northern Italy called Valpolicella. It was exquisite, I had two glasses! I don’t always do that but this wine was soooooo good! And the food is delicious. Hubby had their special, a Sardinian paella but substitute the rice for cous cous. He looked to be in heaven eating it. I got their lamb shank, the meat easily fell off the bone and it was served with an orzo pasta and a tomato sauce. Oh. My. Goodness. It was luscious!!! So delicious, out of this world delicious. I did not eat it all and had the leftovers for lunch the next day. It was just as good as the night before. Wow. We also had the calamari appetizer and we split a Mediterranean salad, complete with arthichokes, two different kinds of olives and an Italian dressing. Delish, all of it!!
I love the welcoming atmosphere of this outstanding Italian restaurant. The food is fantabulous. It’s conveniently located on University Avenue in St. Paul close to Highway 280. You must go. Check out my gallery of photos and enjoy!!
