While I have dined at this location many years ago I returned to treat my wife for a birthday dinner. The food was as good as I remember. The staff was friendly and efficient. The service was perfect between courses with ample time to enjoy cocktails before the arrival of our ordered. And, as an added treat Biba was working... More

Marilyn and I travel 100 miles to dine at Biba's, and we do it often. It was the evening before my birthday.. We started with martinis at the bar, enjoying the wonderful piano player and great group at the bar. Marilyn was thrilled to again find eggplant raviolis on the menu, a must-have for her, and I selected the Buffalo... More

My girlfriend and I went there because she has known the restaurant for years. It is Northern Italian and I guess 'Biba' holds court at the restaurant many nights of the week as well. That is a nice touch, (even though she didn't come to our table! ;)) The lasagna is only served certain evenings and Thursday is one of... More

Sometimes you want a really nice meal. Biba combines elegance (white tablecloths and cloth napkins), an understated and elegant (and quiet) atmosphere, and wonderful food. Presided over by famed TV chef and cookbook author Biba Caggiano, the food is refined, elegant and simply delicious. The wine list has excellent suggestions. The service is usually excellent--unobtrusive but always there when needed.... More

The food at Biba's is amazing! If you get a chance to go in Thurs, Fri, or Sat her lasagna is the best I've had since being in Rome. Definitely worth the price and service is always great.

We LOVE Biba's. Best Italian restaurant in town. But tops on our list is Biba's lasagne - outrageous!! The service is always top notch and Biba is on hand to make sure your meal is the best ever. A great place for special event dinners.

This used to be my favorite restaurant. But after experiencing the new Biba's I was really disappointed in the overall experience. The bar was overcrowded with happy hour guests and the bar service was very slow. The dinning room service was exceptional. But considering a bill of almost $300 for two the food was far from the quality it used... More

The food was very good and the menu had a variety of options. Everyone in our party enjoyed the meals and wine. The server was delightful without being intrusive. It was also quiet enough that we could visit with each other without having to yell. A very enjoyable evening out with friends from around the country. I would not say... More
