Unfortunately this restaurant is no longer in business. The management unfortunately chose to tell their guests and employees that they were reopening after remodel which thy actually had no intentions of doing.

I am a full time resident and decided to meet some friends here for lunch since it was no longer season, it should be a nice little place for lunch. I was wrong!!

I always enjoyed going to Bice, especially for happy hour. I just learned that they are closing. An email was sent telling of their closing. I am saddened by this.

This place is located in Coconut Point. They have outdoor seating, which is fine for lunch, it can be hot in the afternoon and early evening, because it's facing west. Their food can be hit and miss, as well as the service. We used to go for happy hour, but we did not like their appetizer offerings. It's ok, nothing... More

Very small selection on the luncheon menu during the off season. The food was mediocre. I had a lunch salad and my partner had a chicken sandwich. The chicken was rubbery. My salad was large but tasteless. The server bordered on rude and disappeared to "hang" with the hostess as we sat waiting for our check. Clearly a different experience... More

They reduced the happy hour to 6 horrible selections. I guess they don't feel the need to cater to locals. The waitress said that the menu will change in October. I used to love going there but I will not be going back. I guess they don't realize it's the locals who keep there business going. We not only spend... More

We met friends here for lunch, unfortunately there was only one other table occupied. We had an excellent lunch and a good waiter and our friends picked up the bill...what more could you ask for. We had a difficult time finding the restaurant in the mall...directions could have been better..

We frequently visit during happy hour for good appitizers and a glass of wine. Normally it is very crowded and you need to get there on time. Good service and tasty appitizers.

Description
A FAMILY TRADITION

A family who plays together, prays together and eats together, stays together!
This belief has been passed down through generations in our family and it is the vision we like to share with all our guests.

We inherited a tradition of excellence that began in Milan, Italy in 1926 with our founder Beatrice Ruggeri. This is why we highlight "A FAMILY TRADITION", in our motto.

The trattoria in which Beatrice delighted her friends and guests remains open to this day and it has become a dining destination in the city renowned for its extraordinary hospitality, generosity and quality.

Bice's name comes from the affectionate nickname that friends and relatives gave the founder. In 1987 sons Roberto and Remo took the quality and hospitality of that trattoria to New York where they opened the first of many establishments in the United States and soon followed a successful expansion abroad with venues all around the world.

We believe there is something magical about enjoying a meal with family and friends. Special bonds are formed around the dining room table.
For generations we have come together to the dining table to enjoy a meal made with love, so...

WELCOME AND ENJOY!
