This was one of the most wonderful dining experiences I have ever had. From the Italian welcome by the hostess, to the friendly professional waiters, to the simply most delicious food and wine which were recommended to us, to the personal attention of the restaurant manager Paulo. A truly exceptional restaurant.

Had a great experience at BICE. the food was well portioned and the flavours and presentations were excellent. My wife had the en croute mushroom soup and the Tortelloni for main and I had the Tuna appy and SeaBass for main course with a side of the pesto gnocchi. WE enjoyed a selection of 5 cheese after main course which was terrific! Definitely a restaurant that we will return to!

This place is in the very busy gas lamp district and seems to compete well for business so the locals must like it . The service was pretty good and the night we were there it was crowded . The food was expensive and everything was good except for the veal chop which was tasteless . I asked for some mayo to dress it up a bit but it never came and the dish got cold . To the managers credit it was taken off the bill . We found the house white wine and champagne to be very nice as was our flan and ice cream desserts . I feel this a good date night place but not family dining because of the expense . I would try bice again but I might stick to the pasta dishes.

This was a surprise. I hadn't hear much about the place, but boy did it impress me. The food was delicious, plentiful, and not always traditional. It's a bit upscale, and the staff seems a bit theatrical in their presentation, but it was a fun evening with 15 of my business associates. The drinks were always full, the bread was always freshened, and the staff went out of their way to accommodate unusual requests. A very fun, and filling, evening.
