A Sacramento classic, and for good reason. Very good food, impeccable service, nice room for either private couples dining or a business group. It has a certain air of "established"

Being an Italian restaurant, there are non-meat pasta dishes and risotto dishes available as well as salads and veg sides. I don't think there are vegan options though.

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
