This place is connected to Turtle Bread in South Minneapolis. Their pizza, salad and yummy balsamic dressing are outstanding. With a glass of wine it makes a casual night out a delight.

I love Pizza Biga because it is authentically fire roasted in a beautiful large oven that you can see. It is a small and quaint space where families come to enjoy meals together. Feels like an authentic Italian pizza place. It is a bit pricey, but I think the food is high quality. The salads are great, too.

Mike L has done a very good job of describing Pizza Biga, our favorite place to get pizza. We live just two blocks away. The corner of 48th street and Chicago Avenue has a small town, neighborhood feel to it. The pizzas are delicious, and my favorite side is the Roasted Beet salad. Afterwards, you can step into Turtle Bread... More

Pizza Biga is a little attached to Turtle Bread and owned by the same people. It is located in the 48th & Chicago business district which has many shops, restaurants, a new outpatient medical clinic, and walking distance to the Minnehaha parkway. The restaurant is tucked between two other restaurants that satisfy your gravings throughout the day. Turtle Bread is... More
