Biaggi’s offers Italian specialties in a casual dining atmosphere. Their menu features a variety of pastas, meat entrees and sandwiches. A gluten-free menu is also offered for gluten-intolerant individuals.
Farfalle Alfredo is one of the classic pasta dishes that Biaggi’s offers. According to LIVESTRONG's food database MyPlate, one order of this dish contains 980 calories and 66 grams of fat, including 27 grams of saturated fat; 43 grams of carbohydrates including two grams of dietary fiber and 12 grams of sugar; and 51 grams of protein. This is not the best choice for someone looking to lose weight based on calorie and fat content alone.
Sauces are one of the main contributors to the calorie counts for foods offered at Biaggi's. A half-cup serving of a meatless marinara sauce ranges from 70 to 100 calories, with four to six grams of fat, six to nine grams of carbohydrates (including one to three grams of dietary fiber and four to five grams of sugar) and two to three grams of protein.
Many of Biaggi's sauces are cream based. A half-cup serving of full-fat cream contains 234 calories, 23 grams of fat, four carbohydrates and three grams of protein. These figures may give you the means to estimate the calorie counts of menu items.
Among its meat entrees is Biaggi’s own Chicken Parmesan. While this dish can have a wide range in nutritional information based on preparation, a typical restaurant version of Chicken Parmesan can include a whopping 1,500 calories per dinner dish, according to their website, with 73 grams of fat (including 27 grams of saturated fat), 135 grams of carbohydrates (including three grams of dietary fiber and 16 grams of sugar) and 69 grams of protein.
To estimate calories, bear in mind that one tablespoon of olive oil contains 119 calories, and one tablespoon of butter contains 102 calories, according to MyPlate. Both of these fats are featured prominently in the Biaggi’s menu.
