As a special treat, I took my husband to Biba for lunch to celebrate his 75th birthday. Everything was excellent---food, service and ambience. This was our first time eating there and it is pricey, but definitely worth it for a special occasion.

We had lunch @ Biba's on a Friday. We arrived about 10 minutes early for an 11:30 a.m. reservation. The host said that we're early, but went ahead and seated us. We saw Biba at the bar talking to the bartender. A short time later, Biba stopped by and had my husband move to the opposite side of the table,... More

The lasagna is incredible. Its only served two days a week, Thursday & Friday. I suggest calling in case they change the menu days. They also run out because it that good! You can taste that everything was prepared fresh that day. From the crisp salad to the hand made pasta.

Great for special occasion dinners or lunch any time. Don't miss their lasagna only offered on specific weekdays. Superb quality and service. A must for the area.

Decent, american take on Italian food. Great service. Charming location. Not a "fun" vibe; more a get down to business dinner place.

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.

For many years, Biba was known as the preeminent restaurant in Sacramento. 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
