Romantic restaurant by the sea and candlelight. The lasagna was great and the homemade bread is a miracle in Indonesia. The Fritto Misto will remember forever.

We had dinner at Biba Beach Restaurant. Because of the good reviews and the need to make a reservation, our expectations were high. Not needing very much to be happy with food, we were very disappointed by the meals served. Pasta was overcooked and the shrimps were still grey. When we told the waiter that the shrimps were not good... More

I was with a party of four that chose Biba based on its excellent TripAdvisor reviews. We made our reservation, arrived promptly and were seated. We enjoyed fabulous anchovy bruschetta and ordered: bolognaise tagliatelle (2), super seafood tagliatelle, and tomato and clam gnocchi. When our entrées arrived, we were supremely disappointed. The pasta was limp and tasteless and 4 of... More

Very kind owners and fresh italian pasta. Pizza was not available when we eat there :-( But i guess it was sold out which means they prepare fresh wood oven pizzas!!

Went here one night and had an excellent Salmone Ravioli. It was very creamy which I like. Home cooked by Sabrina who is also the owner. The rest of our group had some Pasta Bolognese which were OK. The Bruschetta Speziale is also delicious. The Co-owner (Claudio?) seems a little stressed out maybe. Maybe he should hire a couple of... More

Very nice restaurant. The owner runs a tight ship! Need to make a reservation to eat here. Great service and very good food. Food was a little salty for my taste but I wish I went back to try something different.

Sabrina is the chef (as well as the co-owner) and is a terrific cook. I could live on her insalata and bruschetta. Her pizza is terrific, too. In fact, I have eaten there many times, and haven't had a bad meal, not to mention that I am sitting on the edge of heaven while I am eating there!

This is the best Italian food I've had outside of Italy--and I'd say it's just as good. My traveling companions and I had the pizza as well as pesto gnocchi, tagliatelle with tomato sauce as well as with the salmon cream sauce and ravioli. All the dishes were fantastic. Everything is made from scratch. Can't say enough about it.

Great italian food. The staff were amazing with our child. You do need a reservation as it books out because it is so good. The only downside was that for some reason the staff went home before we finished dinner so we did not get dessert. I do not know what happened. But we would go back and eat again... More

Get there early at 7. Best to book in advance as it gets full and then you can choose a nice table basically on the beach. Dough is also limited to keep it fresh so the earlier the better. Amzing pizzas and pretty big too.
