When it comes to Italian food there are a lot of choices out there. Most of the mediocre. Kind of like Mexican and Chinese cuisine----lots of it but not a lot to like. Biba is an exception not to be missed. My wife and I have enjoyed many meals over the past 20 or more years there and have never... More

Without a doubt, a signature Sacramento restaurant. Definitely the place to go for a special occasion or celebration. The food is excellent always, service is good, Biba is usually on site to welcome diners. All in all, very special!

Wonderful Food and great service. Would high recommend Biba's. A little pricy. Waiter should explain that everything is ala carte instead of presenting the menu like some things are included with the dinner.

But that was before the flourishing of new restaurants over the last 15 years that featured enterprising, creative chefs and took advantage of the farm-to-fork movement that now defines many of the best restaurants in the city. It also preceded the almost seven-year Sutter Hospital complex construction that... More

All at our table enjoyed their meals which included the lasagna and the veal shank. Great appetizers, nice atmosphere and great service. Don't miss this spot when you are in Sacramento.

We've been attempting to make dinner reservations for the past 8 months and haven't been able to due to their tables being full. Last night, I just gave in and phoned Biba to make a reservation. I was shocked when I was informed that there's a table which just opened for 7:30pm. Perfect timing! I took advantage of this time... More

Dinner with wife and a friend. Our sixth time this year at this great restaurant. Started with the calamari appetizer with drinks. I had my usual Kettke one on the rocks, friend had a glass of wine, wife settled for hot tea. For dinner, friend ordered the ravioli, I had the spaghetti ala carbonera and wife had the salmon. All...
