I've dined at Biba several times a year since the restaurant first opened . . . a l o n g time ago. And I have to say, one of the amazing things about Bibs is that it retains its excellence in so many regards. I believe this is in large part due to the fact that Biba herself is... More

My husband and I decided upon the well-renowned Biba restaurant for a very special "milestone" birthday dinner. Our birthdays are one day and ten years apart. I had notified of this beforehand. We went on a weeknight. The atmosphere was strange. We rather enjoy quiet dining, but the restaurant's energy was downright depressing. It didn't help to be stuck in... More

Biba's is great for dining with friends or family and having a non rushed dinner with conversation. The service is perfect which is very rare in the region. This is a great dining experience. The dining room is exquisite and Biba is there to oversee everything. As for food? It lacks innovation and is not really memorable. Everything we tried... More

The food was very tasty. The pasta is made in house and all the ingredients are fresh. The serving sizes are a bit small for the price. Staff is very friendly

You must try the Lasagna. It is served only on Thursday or Friday. It is the best I have tasted. Homemade pasta and no ricotta cheese. It was so filling, we only ate half of it and took the other half for the next day. The next day was even better. The chocolate dessert was the richest dessert.

Excellent service, moderate portion size, always tasty and sophisticated. Run by a fine lady, who's authored many cookbooks (for sale at the restaurant).

My wife and I have eaten in Italian restaurants around the world including Rome, Venice and Milan. The fettuccini in Rome at Alfredo's is good but can't compare with that at Biba's. The ambiance is pleasant and the wait staff is fantastic. The pasta dishes and the sauces are the best we have ever had. Make an early reservation to... More

Quite simply put, this is my favorite restaurant in Sacramento. The food is superb and the service is great. If they have a ravioli special, get it!
