We were the only table in on this evening which was a surprise after the reviews and lonely planet guides comments. Staff were attentive and friendly, food service was very quick and it was delicious. Portion sizes could have been bigger though for the price ( should be a ££ sign not £ ). Overall was a nice meal, though... More

The restaurant was basic, quiet and no real vibe. The pesto tagliatelle was a generous size and very delicious - a nice change from the Indonesian dishes we had been enjoying. Bruschetta was alright. Tiramisu tasted very tangy sour with a slight bubbly feel in the mouth - odd.

Dissapointingly, no longer any pizza served here. Someone should slap them! Last time we went the pizza was THE BEST on the island, so we left and went down the road to Zipp Bar where the pizza was okay but nothing on what Biba used to be

Yes, like in Italy but also like in paradise !!! Romantic tables and cushioned cubicles right on the beach with sunset and sunrise as a premium. Dining was always a delightful experience : out of this world bruschettas and delicious pasta. And the service from the Italian owners and their staff was just perfect.

A little expensive compared with what else you might find on Gili Air but despite the price difference of +10-20.000 rp. for a main course then we loved it. Only con was that the pizzaoven was broken while we visited.

I had pasta and it was tasty and hot. The seats on the beach were romantic and relaxing. But the fruit juice was 75% pulp. When I showed the waitress my glass was heavy with fruit pulp and little juice - she said that was just how they made it. So that was disappointing. The music was terrible! Sickly pop... More

According to LP, there should be the best pizza and focaccia on the island. Not any more. We made a reservation but the guy didn't bother to tell us in advance that they don't make pizza any more. This place is quite overpriced I think. We ordered raviolli with butter and rosemary (just dry herbs), 65 Rp and tagliatele with... More
