Inside still looks like the Granary.

Inside still looks like the Granary, fancy. The service is still good. And the food is still good. It's pricey but no more than Rib N Chop or places of the similar. Nothing stands out to me as over the top.

I have tried several dishes at Bistecca and all are very good. I really love the pasta dishes. I had the best Creme Brûlée I've ever had in my life there last time and I have had many. I love the expanded patio area with the area that opens between the inside and outside. They have a wonderful beer selection... More

Terrible dinner. Worst marinara sauce, worst tiramisu I've ever had. Could do a lot to improve food quality as an Italian restaurant. We live in billings and will never be back.

I ate here several times in late June and early July. We were visiting my father, who lives extremely close and he was in the middle of a kitchen remodel, so this was our dinner spot for many of our dinners. The food was always delicious but my favorite dish was the Poly Drive Pasta. We loved the Crab Cakes... More

Early October on a Friday and we love comfortable out door settings. The Bistecca has an excellent menu, superb drinkery, and a wonderful ambience. They had just completed the installation of gas overhead heaters under awnings on their patio and it was misting rain, in the high 50's, but we were warm and covered and the food and beverage, and...

I loved this cute restaurant and bar. My fiends and I sat outside in the sun and enjoyed cocktails and appetizers. The cocktails were great and I liked the food too. My friends didn't like the dragon tenders though I did (but I don't like breaded items and these were not breaded).

We have eaten here twice in the last four months and both times have had lackluster service and food that was not edible. This past Thursday, we had a server that was nice (we were eating outside) but the French Onion soup had no taste (how does THAT happen?? It's ONIONS!) the shrimp in the shrimp cocktail was more "fish"... More

It is considered one of Billings best, but I found it just average. Even the service was slow. But the prices make you think it is top of the line, but sorry, it is only average.

We recently stopped in for dinner and ate at the bar. The food was good but the service was lacking. We had to listen to "cool guy" bartender complain about his manager and coworkers to an obviously new waitress. Meanwhile we sat at the bar with empty glasses of beer. Not once did the bartender ask us if we wanted... More

I believe The Bistecca most likely deserves more stars. This was our first time visiting since we have been hearing about it. Very easy to find. This place is popular and for good reason. We arrived at 430 and they open at 400. Their Patio is all I have heard about and it looked just as nice, almost like you... More
