We were at Biba's twice this month with different groups of friends, once for Happy Hour, once for a birthday dinner. As usual Biba's continues to be one of sacramento's premiere restaurants. The food is excellent, the service is exemplary and the ambiance fine. What a treat!

Biba's has always been a favorite of mine. However, when I visited last time the ravioli was special. The lobster ravioli was delicious. A wonderful sauce and tender pieces of lobster made for a great appetizer. A bit costly, but worth it.

The food is wonderful, and the service is attentive without being overwhelming. Space between tables is comfortable. I look forward to the next dinner this fall.

One of the best nouveau Italian restaurants you will find anywhere! A Sacramento stable for decades! Friendly staff, happy hour menu and drinks, semi-elegant yet relaxing atmosphere not v requiring dress up, but above beach wear! :-) Curbside valet parking available.

Biba is a special occasion dining experience for people who appreciate great food and service. There is a price for that, but I found it to be worth the premium. Go there and done; prove it to yourself.

Biba's is not only for special occasions but also when you just want to eat the best food in town. Biba is famous for a reason - excellence.
