Fodor's Expert Review Biba

$$$ Sacramento Italian Fodor's Choice

Celebrity chef and owner Biba Caggiano's elegant yet comfortable haven of northern Italian cuisine, opened in 1986 near Sutter's Fort, stands tallest among the restaurants that elevated Sacramento's stature as a food town. The Capitol crowd flocks here for menus that change quarterly, with staples such as a 10-layer lasagna with Bolognese sauce (served only on Thursday and Friday), braised pork shoulder, and house-made gnocchi and pasta dishes.
