It was so good, penne pasta with onion and pancetta in a red vodka cream sauce. So wintery and comforting. The homemade bread sticks that aren’t dry and have been rolled in spices. To top it off, lemon infused crepe brûlée with shortbread cookies.

Biba's is located in the downtown area of Sacramento. The restaurant was clean and it has a nice atmosphere, but overall the food was just average and somewhat expensive, for what you get.

Still the best Happy Hour in Sacramento and in a piano bar to boot. Delicious bites, Maker's Mark Manhattans like no other, velvety and luscious. Beautiful music and top-notch service.

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
