Located in the historic Old Tavern Building, just minutes from the State Capitol, Biba Caggiano, celebrated chef, cookbook author, and TV personality, brings a bit of Italy to Sacramento. Savor the flavors of Biba's award winning authentic Italian cuisine in a friendly but refined ambiance, with attentive service that will make you feel instantly welcome. Enjoy spuntini with a cocktail or glass of wine in the lounge area, kick back and listen to piano music, or order a full meal at the bar or in the dining room. Only the finest and freshest ingredients are used and the food is truly Italian...house made lasagne Bolognese on Thursday and Friday and a different stuffed pasta dish every day. Osso bucco alla Milanese (veal shanks) or stinco di agnello (lamb shanks) are just some of the entrees you may expect to find. California and Italian wines are available to complement the food. And don't skip the dessert. The Tiramisu is to die for!

Our waiter was very attentive and professional. The food was delivered at the appropriate time. The presentation was beautiful, the quality of the ingredients shinned through. For an exceptional dinning experience, I highly recommend Biba.

Went for a business dinner with a career consultant. I asked for as private a table as possible in the reservation, and they seated us in the perfect spot. Nestled in a corner where we could have our computers up on the table, and not feel like we're bringing the office to a restaurant.

The service was impeccable. Very professional, courteous, and prompt. Food was excellent (we had the pan-seared Sea Bass, it was extraordinary) and served timely. Probably the best glass of Pinot Noir I've had in a while, perfect temperature.

All in all this is a first class place, with a very comfortable feel. They even had live piano playing for dinner. Doesn't get much better than that.

Very highly recommended.

No wait when we had reservation. I did request a quiet spot for talking and we were placed in the middle of the room, but they moved us upon request. Food was excellent and service was great!

We have not dined her often in the past, we enjoyed ourselves. It was fairly loud, so it was difficult to listen to everyone in my group.
