It's rare that I give a negative review, but what can I say? Bia achieved disappointments on every level for me. Many of the wines on the list were unavailable, service was "in your face" and annoying until you actually needed something....at which time, no one was to be found. The food was not only uninspired but just plain bad. The staff seemed ill prepared to explain the wine list or the menu and were mostly keen to tell us about their personal business and how much of a tip they received from the previous table. All up...not a great experience.

A group of 5 of us ate here for Easter brunch. Buffet style, the food was very good. Everything was well prepared and a good value for the price. The decor is unique and very nicely appointed. I imagine the lighting would provide a nice ambiance in the evening. Service was stellar, from the bright smile we were greeted with by the hostess who opened the door for us upon entry, to our server Paul who was perfectly attentive. We will definitely return to try their regular menu.

Went with a large group, we all had a great time! The food is delicious, the atmosphere is great. Pork chops, flounder, lamb, cioppino, duck egg ravioli... everything was good from what my group said. The gouda mac and cheese is awesome! Good mojitos... and live music! Service was excellent. Great experience.. we'll go back for sure. (Not for kids)

This restaurant opened in December 2012 and was a fabulous find on a dreary Monday night.
The decor is very modern, yet the atmosphere is eclectic and the service fantastic.

I had the Cioppinno which was the best I have had since living in the Pacific Northwest. The wine list had several unique finds and the prices were extremely reasonable which made the whole experience joy.
