A FAMILY TRADITION

A family who plays together, prays together and eats together, stays together!
This belief has been passed down through generations in our family and it is the vision we like to share with all our guests.

We inherited a tradition of excellence that began in Milan, Italy in 1926 with our founder Beatrice Ruggeri. This is why we highlight "A FAMILY TRADITION", in our motto.

The trattoria in which Beatrice delighted her friends and guests remains open to this day and it has become a dining destination in the city renowned for its extraordinary hospitality, generosity and quality.

Bice's name comes from the affectionate nickname that friends and relatives gave the founder. In 1987 sons Roberto and Remo took the quality and hospitality of that trattoria to New York where they opened the first of many establishments in the United States and soon followed a successful expansion abroad with venues all around the world.

We believe there is something magical about enjoying a meal with family and friends. Special bonds are formed around the dining room table.
For generations we have come together to the dining table to enjoy a meal made with love, so...

WELCOME AND ENJOY!

I got to "lunch with the girls" recently on a cool afternoon - all salads were good, and the one sandwich that looked great was some kind of turkey, bacon, and avocado.

Beautiful upscale place in Coconut Mall, nice decor. That's where it ends. The mixed drink ($13) had virtually no liquor and the appetizer never came. The waitress remarked that she would do us a favor and not charge us for the appetizer that never came! How nice. We also never got the bread which would have been the best part... More

My extended family (7 adults total) met for lunch at Bice's with no reservation in January. There had just been a heavy rainstorm so the outside tables were not set up, but the staff willingly accommodated us by drying off and setting up a table outside. Nice upscale ambiance, very good food (I had grouper- delicious). A bit pricey, but... More

Nice atmosphere. Good waitress. Large menu. I really enjoy the shrimp and bacon club sandwich. I order it for the dinner meal as there is plenty of it and it has a great taste. The gnocchi soup was excellent. Warm bread, crackers, and olive oil are served before the meal and is a nice touch.

Went here visiting friends. This is a really nice restaurant as far as decor. I enjoyed looking around. I had the steak salad which was good. My husband had the shrimp fettuccine and he said it was fine. Our server was pleasant and attentive. I enjoyed this place because we were with friends. Will probably go back for lunch.

We were trying to find a place to meet some friends for dinner. My friend suggested Bice Grand Café because it was midway between our houses in southwest Florida. We got reservations for 7:30.

Nothing stands out about lunch at Bice. The service was slow but friendly. My companion had the calamari appetizer and it was not only a very big portion but she thought it quite good.
