All pasta dishes are excellent as well as oso buco, lamb, and fresh fish entrees. You can't go wrong!!! Wine list is a good one, too! I prefer... More

When my Italian cousin said he wanted Italian food, I decided that only Biba would do. Biba,who is somewhat of a legend in Sacramento, and her husband are almost always there at the bar area to greet their guests. . The restaurant is intimate and upscale with friendly and accomodating service. The menu is limited but the food is delicious... More

The most consistent and consistently outstanding Italian food in Sacramento. Impossible to have a bad meal there, but the special lasagna on Thursday & Friday really is special.

Fantastic food, perhaps the greatest tiramisu anywhere and the best service. A true Sacramento landmark.

If I am going Italian in Sacramento, I am going to Biba. If it is Thursday or Friday, I will get the lasagna. Great atmosphere, great service and personal table visits from Biba. Love this place.

I travel worldwide and eaten here many times. It is for sure one of better or best restaurants in Sacramento. It's just funny reading some of the reviews here. This is not a 3 Michelin star restaurant. But a local high quality eatery for Italian food. Some may find it offensive, but this food is much better than many of... More

Wow. What a fantastic experience. We were passing through town and they were able to squeeze us in as the day was our only option. The chef went out of his way to create a dish that worked with allergies. The food was fantastic! We even had Biba visit our table and comment on how handsome my young son looked... More
