This is about as classy as Sacramento gets. You have clients from the capital and you need to lobby some muck-e-muck to get a bill ram rodded through---if Frank Fats is booked (or your'e bummed out on Chinese Food) you come here!!! The food is outstanding as is the NOSE BLEED PRICES you are going to pay for it (figure $100.00 person inc tip). This is a class act and maybe you are not up for this kind of class (I would never take a casual date to Biba's even with the guarentee of sex afterwards). This is business class (or fiancee class)---this is not casual dining class!!! Abben danza!!!

Hands down, Biba is the best Italian Restaurant in the greater Sacramento Area. Overall, it is at least in the top three restaurants in the area. Sacramento is very lucky to have such a fine dining restaurant available. We have been going to Biba since it first opened.

The food is authentic Italian, and the menu will have slight changes so it does not get boring. The gnocci is always great and is done with different sauces. All the pastas are fresh and well flavored. We have never had a bad meal here, and always leave content. Dessert is always a treat.

Service is second to none. The wait staff is very attentive and ensures that all your questions are answered. Some of the staff have been there since the opening and are from Italy. They have a very good understanding of pairing wines with your meal, you just have to be open to hearing their recommendations. Biba seems to always be here! She has no problem mingling with her guests and making her rounds. I take my son here for his birthday, and she always makes him feel special.

The atmosphere is elegant. Parking is a bit of a pain unless you run your car through the valet. This is not a rush and dash restaurant. To make the experience the best, plan on taking your time and enjoying your meal.

Northern Italian food at it's very best. This is sophisticated dining. The service is impeccible but not stuffy. Don't go if you are looking for basic spagetti and meatballs.
