Fantastic food, perhaps the greatest tiramisu anywhere and the best service. A true Sacramento landmark.

If I am going Italian in Sacramento, I am going to Biba. If it is Thursday or Friday, I will get the lasagna. Great atmosphere, great service and personal table visits from Biba. Love this place.

I travel worldwide and eaten here many times. It is for sure one of better or best restaurants in Sacramento. It's just funny reading some of the reviews here. This is not a 3 Michelin star restaurant. But a local high quality eatery for Italian food. Some may find it offensive, but this food is much better than many of... More

Wow. What a fantastic experience. We were passing through town and they were able to squeeze us in as the day was our only option. The chef went out of his way to create a dish that worked with allergies. The food was fantastic! We even had Biba visit our table and comment on how handsome my young son looked... More

Biba is a landmark restaurant. I went to her opening and still go there whenever possible. Biba still walks around almost every night to meet and greet patrons. Food is always constantly good, servers are informed and everyone is treated with respect. A delightful place!

This restaurant tries to make you feel like you're dining in a "fancy" restaurant. The prices are commensurate with somewhere like Picasso in Vegas, but with NONE of the atmosphere. This place could almost be a hospital. From the outside of the plain white building, to the inside white walls and plain decor. Biba screams for some more lively atmosphere,... More

Not to be missed while in Sacramento!! Biba has been turning out old school Italian food for years & she's amazing. She doesn't follow trends, she doesn't waste time on the fluff--she just cooks damn delicious Italian food. Her lasagna is amazing --it's only served one day a week so if you're lucky enough to be there on that night,... More
