Very good restaurant in Biella

The ambience is a bit old fashioned , but the quality of the food is very good ( above average in Biella ) . It has a full wine list and very well organized by region. The service is very attentive .

We went here for a Sunday lunch and it definitely exceeded our expectations. The greeting was warm and friendly and we had uniformly excellent service from our (English-speaking) waiter throughout the meal. The menu is extensive - if anything the choice is too great - but traditional/conservative. That said, the chef is clearly technically first-rate. Between us, we had among... More

I recently visited the restaurant with family and girlfriend. It was my birthday and I totally loved the place. The food is great and the staff really nice. Beside the posh setting, the atmosphere is warm and friendly. The prices are a little bit high if compared to the nigh restaurants, but you pay for valuable food.

Elegant setting, refined service and great food. Interesting to taste the flavour of the dishes they propose. Good quality of the meat too. It is reccomended also to have a quiet conversation during the meal, it is a very peaceful place.

Food was good, at least they had broader vegetarian choice. Had sparkling Italian wine- was good. Food was equally good, Risotto was little let down, otherwise everything else was delicious.

The restaurant present a good and wide menu, the food is good but the prices too high and the service very very slow. Not slow food but slow service!

Having a second residence in the region, we are often in the area during vacations, and La Lira is one of our favorite stops when in town for lunch. With a comfortable, but not over-the-top decoration, attentive service and great food, La Lira is very central and easy to get to. It works well with family or for business, with... More

Since we discovered the Lira, we have been coming back a couple of times a year. The pizzas allow for a tasty (and children appropriate!) quick lunch, while the seasonal menu, well prepared and presented, is always delicious.... The Tagliolini al riccio di mare are briny and a real treat. A must is to come by during TRUFFLES season...

When you cross the streets of Biella, you will not discover a place like this if you don't know it!! The premises is ok, not particularly amazing but the food is really good, well cooked and particular. It's not the usual restaurant that wants to give you sophisticated food at a stellar price, it's a restaurant that starts from the... More
