Excellent Pizza, great attitude from the servers. Fairly loud noise level, but perhaps should expect that on a busy Saturday night. Definitely will go back!

Biga is a great neighborhood spot for me, but with growing popularity, I’ve enjoyed my experience there less and less. The food is great and very well priced, but the restaurant is just too small for the amount of tables they’re packing in. The noise level is also pretty out of control, with the overpacked restaurant and music volume. The servers are all very nice, but it’s nearly impossibly to talk to them or get their attention with all the chaos in the restaurant. I wish Biga would remove a table or two and utilize the empty bar a bit for parties of two, set up a proper host stand/ waiting area, and lower the music volume quite a bit. Then, the atmosphere and overall dining experience may match their delicious food!

Biga is a fantastic neighborhood pizza joint. Chef Giovanni has a unique dough he created that gives the pizza a soft inside, but fluffy, crunchy crust - incredible!

Excellent pizza. Unique crusts. Service was attentive. No liquor license and $7 to unscrew a cap on my wine bottle seemed excessive

Great pizza with fresh ingredients made to order. They still dont have liquor license but we bought some beer next door and they were kind enough to put them on ice bucket for us. The pizza and the service is great. Oh and the tiramisù and espresso for dessert truly italian! Recommended!

Going to Biga is the perfect way to spend a low-key night out. First of all - it's BYOB, and East Houston Liquors is right across the street. Already a winner. Second, the atmosphere is truly outstanding: fun music, open windows, and excellent people-watching.

After taking in the atmosphere with your personally selected wine, you almost forget that you ordered curiously delicious sounding food... until you smell it coming. So, third, I have never taken a bad, or even mediocre, bite of food at this restaurant. I will not waste words even attempting to describe it, but just know it is worth it.

The cherry on top of the whole experience is the incredibly charming and friendly staff. Scratch that, the cherry on top are the reasonable prices. You know what... I take both those back. The cherry on top has to be the homemade tiramisu. Regardless, I urge you to take the leap and make that reservation right now.

P.S. I don't know what nights of the week they have their homemade gnocchi but make sure to always ask because it is not on the menu and, if they are serving it, GET IT. You will not regret it.

Excellent food; look forward to their being able to serve wine. Music was *way* too loud even after requesting them to turn it down. Had to yell to speak to the couple we were dining with, who also didn't like the noise.

Servers put a smile on our faces. Gnocchi melted in our mouth. BYOB wine was poured generously. We left with full stomachs and smiles on our faces (especially because it didn't drain our wallets. BigA has risen to one my top recommendations in NYC. If you're debating whether or not to go... GO!
