Description: A FAMILY TRADITION A family who plays together, prays together and eats...
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!

Nice place

The food was good and I liked the atmosphere. Our server was a little spacey and had to flag her down for the check. Other than that we had a pleasant experience.

I'm still craving the food now! We had fantastic food there - the meatballs & tempura grouper are just to die for. My only regret is that I was too full for dessert!!

You couldn't pay me enough money to eat in this establishment again. My wife and I had had lunch here one afternoon, she. Had a half a salad and soup. I had some sort of meat with rice and beans. The place was half empty inside, so we ate outside (good for people watching). My wife's soup was close to... More

We had read mixed reviews on this restaurant but were on holiday and close by one evening so we decided to give it a try. I'm not sure if we just picked a bad night but: the service was extremely slow and several parties left due to the delays. Two ladies left after ordering but before the food was delivered... More

Stopped in at Bice in the Coconut shopping Plaza in Estero for a special Birthday Lunch yesterday. We ate Al Fresco and had a very good meal. The service was excellent and the food was superb...very well presented. The lettuce wraps were a feast for the eyes and very tasty... I had Beef Carpaccio and it was just superb.

This place is terrible. Don't even bother. Visited with friends and sat at the bar. Service was slow, bathrooms were overflowing and disgusting.

I have been at Bice at least 15 times and the service and food is always reliable. Not Haute Cuisine by all means but good food for a fair price with friendly service.

Recently had lunch here and was more than satisfied. Nice portion for pasta dish. Sat in bar area and service was excellent. Reasonable prices across the menu. Located right in Coconut Point near shops and other dining options. Would definitely return.
