This is the ultimate dining experience. Top quality food and service. Biba personally circulates among the diners and knows many from years of service.

We've owned Biba Caggiano's TRATTORIA cookbook for 22 years and finally got to go. Outstanding food, among the best I've ever had all over the world. Great service: we were able to get two plates of each dish so we could share (i.e. two separate...More

Christine and I had a great meal at Biba. The prices were reasonable, the food was fresh and delicious, and the service was efficient and professional. We stuck to the homemade pastas and wine by the glass. Definitely worth trying.

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
