Biba's in my "foodie" expert opinion is the very best for Italian not just in Sacramento but in the surrounding area. Highly recommend to anyone looking for the areas best for Italian.

The meal was excellent as well as the decor and the server. The owner came over to greet us at our table. Bib'a is an institution in Sacramento.

They have valet parking - you just drive to the front door and they take your car. Very efficient- we have never waited more than 5 minutes for our car as we leave Biba's. Hope this helps, Gail
