Bia bistro is located in building that once was a unique Book store, so there are several nook and cranny dining areas. Service was outstanding and the food was excellent. We enjoyed the offering of what they call "SPLITS" on selected items that are reduced in quantity. The escargot was marginal in lack of defined garlic. Would visit again.

This favorite never disappoints with great local seafood specials and homey classics! The seafood stew can be ordered as spicy as you like and the local scallops with lobster/potato salad was a treat on this hot summer night.

Having traveled from chicago and Munich to Cohasset, we were starving. Although later, we came to discover Bia. What a delight. Fun staff, accommodating and delicious food. Turned out to be a great evening.

Sat outside. Service good. Clean. Food only fair- had $34 rib steak which was the special. Very tough and overdone. Used bug spray on guests while they and others were eating !!!!!!!!!!!!! Not safe.

Had dinner there last night before going to a concert nearby (3 minutes from south Shore Music Circus!) We ordered escargot, mushroom risotto, a salad special and a pizza. All were delicious. Service excellent. Great menu and ambiance. Would recommend, definitely.

In the sleepy village of Cohasset, on the south shore of MA is the charming Bia Bistro. A cozy restaurant with a lively bar and some of the best food I've had in a long time. We stayed in Cohasset for a show at the Music Circus, and as it was our anniversary weekend we came for 2 nights. The... More

Been in town two years before I finally made it in for dinner - boy, do I have to make up for the lost time. Service was outstanding, and the food excellent, from the salad through to the great seafood I ate that evening.

If you're in the vicinity of Cohasset Village, Bia Bistro is a very pleasant place to dine. The entire staff was friendly and looking to please! Our waitress was delightful. The menu is varied and the dishes creative & very tasty in what I would call a combination of American & French Fusion. The Duck Pate' was light and flavorful.... More

We have been going to this place for over six years. The menu is interesting and the food is very good. A highly convivial place to go to with another couple. It jumps a bit later in the evening. I've had very good service and service that was not as timely as one would expect of a place like this.... More

This is a small casual dining venue - great location in Cohasset. The atmosphere is pub-like with a large wrap-around bar and small bistro-like tables. The service is moderate but the food is absolutely delicious.
