Dining review: At Biba, food and service still great, decor needs updating

- Blair Anthony Robertson - Sacramento Bee

For 25 years, Biba Caggiano has been a larger-than-life presence on the Sacramento restaurant scene.

She's a nationally respected author and food celebrity who has published eight books on Italian cooking and sold 600,000 copies, while rubbing elbows with the likes of Martha Stewart. She's a restaurateur who long ago set a standard for commitment and consistency and, I might add, a certain timeless Italian charm.

Original Story

Three years ago, the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau established a program to promote the city as “America’s Farm to Fork Capital.”

Pushing agriculture and restaurants may not be as important as being the legislative home of the sixth- largest economy in the world, but it’s certainly sexier. In addition, the marketing staff can make a strong case for its importance as an agricultural powerhouse for such distinctions as growing 80 percent of the world’s almonds and domestic caviar, and for its production of high-quality rice that fills the steamers in some of Japan’s best sushi restaurants.

Press and Reviews

Old-school excellence

- Garrett McCord

There are way too many restaurant-scene posers in this city. You know who they are. The uber-chic foodies who are so over the word “foodie” that they ironically claim it as a badge of honor. They’re the types who make a reservation at a restaurant during opening week for bragging rights or a Yelp review, ignoring the fact that most places need at least three months to even begin getting their feet wet.

They’re also the people who have likely ignored the culinary cornerstones of Sacramento. They’ve never sunk their teeth into a thick wedge of Zelda’s deep dish pizza or grabbed scoop at Vic’s Ice Cream. And they certainly haven’t experienced the glory of Biba’s.
