I came to Sacramento from Louisiana for work and was looking for a good place to eat. Biba's was recommended as an excellent place for Italian food. The place lived up to the billing. I sat at the bar and as the World Series had just started and I was by myself and I love sports. I had the calamari,... More

I am of the mind that Biba's is the hands down best Italian restaurant in Sacramento! And, among the best restaurants in Sacramento period!!

Biba's is very unique Italian restaurant. The food is simple but fresh and very flavorful. You can tell they take great pride in preparation and use only the best and freshest ingredients. It is a bit pricey but do try it, you won't be disappointed.

My husband had the short ribs and devoured them. I had the lasagne and can still remember how delicious it was. Nothing like you make at home and so flavorful. Salads were very tasty and the bread...oh my...best breadsticks ever!

We hadn't been to Biba in a long time, and recently had a great evening there with our friends. The restaurant has a very pleasant, calm dining room, a handsome bar and wonderful service to go along with the setting. All of the salads and entrees pleased the diners. The wine list is good, with a good selection and a... More

My husband and I returned here to celebrate our 15 year anniversary. We dressed up since it is a 5 star restaurant and the last time that we were here there was assumed dress code. People's attire has since relaxed. The service was great and the food was excellent. Reservations are definitely needed. We shared an appetizer, and a bottle... More

This restaurant has been for over 20 years, and remains on of Sacramento's best restaurants. The food is always excellent, service match the food. The menu is northern Italian for the most part, served good Italian wine from that region. Biba a master of hospitality is normally working the tables. This is an excellent romantic night out!

Some family brought us here on Thursday as its lasagne night and apparently pretty good... Wow . It was the best lasagne ever. Prices were high for starters but mains were pretty normal. It's a wonderful place

Did we go for my birthday? Sure as heck we did. Made reservations, were led through the bar area to a well-lit, well-spaced restaurant. Service was precise and friendly. The Monterey Bay calamari was perfect. The sea bass was stunning. The pumpkin panna cotta was sublime. I can't imagine a better way to spend my birthday. Was Biba there greeting... More
