Absolutely AMAZING Italian food. Have a leisurely dinner in this quaint Sacramento institution. The food is fantastic, the service impeccable, the wines delicious. We go here for special occasions, but don't wait that long. Go now!

Love Biba's lasagna! Especially like the thin layers of pasta. Historic building near Sutter Medical Center Sacramento.

Great drinks, marginal food☹️, poor service. This was a very disappointing experience since Biba's in the past was our go to place for entertaining out of towers. Something is wrong at Biba's. Something wrong in the front and the back of the house.😬

They have valet parking - you just drive to the front door and they take your car. Very efficient- we have never waited more than 5 minutes for our car as we leave Biba's. Hope this helps, Gail
