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.

My husband and I go there most Friday nights. There is a good range of food and great salads. Atmosphere is casual and cozy. And if you live on the South Shore, you will most likely run into someone you know.

We have been to Bia Bistro a few times and have never been disappointed! The quaint, New England atmosphere, the service and especially the food is "to die for." The mussels can't be missed and are the most plump, savory muscles we've ever had. Entrees we have tried include the duck breast, short ribs, hanger steak, salmon...all fantastic. A great... More

This is a popular local restaurant with a fantastic menu and great service. They always have a special based on what is fresh, and some go to dishes. There steak frite and short ribs are both our go to dishes, and we have never been disappointed with the specials. The cocktails and wine list are very good, but the bar... More
