Reliable local restaurant, good food, excellent service

I've been to Bia many times. The bolognese is very good. The specials are great. Parmesan truffle fries! Love those. They could maybe change up the menu a bit but with the specials, there's always something new to consider.

We have been to Bia Bistro a few times and have never been disappointed! The quaint, New England atmosphere, the service and especially the food is "to die for." The mussels can't be missed and are the most plump, savory muscles we've ever had. Entrees we have tried include the duck breast, short ribs, hanger steak, salmon...all fantastic. A great... More

This is a popular local restaurant with a fantastic menu and great service. They always have a special based on what is fresh, and some go to dishes. There steak frite and short ribs are both our go to dishes, and we have never been disappointed with the specials. The cocktails and wine list are very good, but the bar... More

Cozy, with a very varied menu, seafood, duck, beef, but favorite is the chicken with mushroom risotto. Good beer and wine selection and nice staff.

We had a nice dinner here, the food was good, not great - kind of average offerings, the pizza with arugula was nice, the veal meatballs were so-so.... We had an outstanding waitress named Merrick, definitely ask for her if you go there.

We typically visit Bia Bistro at least once a year to enjoy the ambiance and food. Tucked away in an upscale community south of Boston, you won't stumble upon this restaurant by accident. In past years we have thoroughly enjoyed the service, ambiance and food, but this year we found the food to be less than anticipated. I had a... More

We often go to Bia. Went last Saturday night. Special salad was to have kale, frizze, mozzarella, etc. Just kale and mozzarella and $12. The sole special was mushy, unappealing and my wife couldn't eat it. I spoke with the waitress and expected to have my wife offered something else, or a comp on the meal. Neither was forthcoming so... More
