Having traveled to Italy on many occasions & visited many regions, I’ve had lasagna plenty of times to know good, great or bad. Biba’s is exceptional, and Biba personally greeting your table makes the experience off the chart fantastic. Be sure to ask about lasagna...More

We went for my companies Christmas party (in January.). The food was good and the atmosphere was nice. Personally, I'm not a foodie so while the food was good,I didn't find anything too be spectacularly great. Others in the party really liked it.

I eat often, with a group or alone, service is always great. When they serve maybe the best halibut I have ever had. Pasta is wonderful, try the carbonara. Wine of the month is a always a good buy.

Came here with a few co-workers for a work meeting & had the lasagna. It was so light and delicious, I wanted more. Will definitely be coming back with my family & friends.

I always enjoy Biba's. The food is very good and I love the presentation. I usually sit in the bar area so I can listen to the pianist but the restaurant area is lovely also.

Italian at it’s best! Thursday and Friday is the only days for lasagne- -superb! Everything else is probably better...so says all! I’m just stuck on that particular perfection!

I had dinner there one night and could not get comfortable because my back was hurting so badly for three weeks I wanted to die. We ordered a bottle of wine and after two glasses I was out of pain. Weird huh?

Biba is my birthday and anniversary go to place. Biba is where I take my most important guests. Always wonderful. Always flavorful. Always the best service. Get the lasagna on Thursdays and Fridays.

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
