Attended this restaurant for a business dinner. Our reservations were ready, and the staff greeted us warmly. The servers were very attentive throughout the meal. We did not stay for dessert. The swordfish special was delicious. Parking valets were conscientious and courteous.

The restaurant offers no surprises, just quality Italian food . I'd never be hesitant to take a friend or business acquaintance there.

I recently had a one-day business trip to Sacramento. After a short morning meeting, my client suggested we continue our meeting during lunch. I asked her what kind of food she wanted and she said, "I think we’ll go to my favorite Italian restaurant." Well, that nice Italian place was Biba's, which has been one of my favorite restaurants in... More

Biba is one of my culinary heroes. When I first started cooking, she had a show on The Learning Channel, aka TLC. Some of the lessons still cross my mind when I'm in the kitchen- "You can always add, but you can never take away" (salt), or "If you don't like this, use whatever you like" (just about any ingredient)....

My husband surprised me with reservations for our anniversary dinner. We were ushered in to a lovely table, and had excellent service throughout the evening. We had appetizers, main course and dessert, and all was delicious. Best of all, we were never rushed and the entire experience was first class. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My good friend (who is a huge foodie!) lives on the central coast and is in Sacramento rarely, but each time she is, we always go to Biba. There is nothing else like it in Sacramento; the staff is amazing, most having been with Biba for 10+ years, and they always make the whole experience a true pleasure. The food... More

Biba's was overrated back when it opened years ago and was the "In" place. Has always been over-priced with a higher opinion of itself than warranted. Now it's just 'tired' and outdone by several other midtown restaurants.

Bob consistently serves great food! I do try to go on Thursdays or Friday's as her award winning lasagna is only served on these days.

Great food, great service. A bit loud in the dinning room but other than that it is an excellent place to dine in.

A nice restaurant, I think the owners like Biba's, more than some of the clients, Biba's is becoming old hat.
