Fine Italian food that tastes authentic. Nice old school bar and cocktails, wonderful ambience, a dinner here won't disappoint. If you can make it during happy hour, you'll save a buck. But make sure you're early, else you won't find a seat

My wife and I went to Biba for her Birthday and had a great evening. The restaurant was beautiful and the staff very attentive. Best of all, the food was fantastic and reasonably priced. We will go back more often.
