One of the best run restaurants I have ever been in. The entire staff from the owner on down work as one cohesive unit, a true team! It was fascinating to watch and observe with the only distraction being the quality of the food I was eating while the orchestra of events went on all around me. The only thing I could have done to enjoyed it more would have been to look closer at the discretion and noticed that it’s BYOB. But we will be back and I will bring a bottle and probably one to give to or share with Marcelo (the owner) who after only having met one time makes you feel like a long lost friend or part of the family! AWESOME experience, THANK YOU Bici staff!!!

We took two couples with us who we dine with regularly. This is the first time we ALL had a great meal. We also remarked how we could hear each other even though the restaurant was full. Our friends were so impressed with Marchello and how he came to our table several times and knew my husband and me (frequent diners) which does not happen at a restaurant we must frequent due to living in the Ramsey Country Club. They could take lessons from Bici’s.

My request for a round table to comfortably accommodate the 8 of us was fulfilled with a very comfortable table in a great location in the dining room. Our appetizers (ie, calamari, salads and buretta) were excellent, the short ribs and scallops were excellent, and the munk fish was good (the sauce was excellent, but the fish was dry). Service was excellent, including the cordial visit to our table by the owner.

My husband & I were first time diners as we went with friends we frequent. Food was delicious - loved the sea scallops! Marcello (the owner) was charming and really cared about every diners experience. Service was good and never felt rushed. It was a bit loud as they had a very large party of women, but from what I understand that is not normal for them to do (large parties). I would definitely go back.

We have been patrons since Velo opened and when they expanded to Ramsey it was a not a surprise that Bergen County was in for a treat.
If you want a terrific experience run don’t walk!!!

This is such a cute local place. The service is excellent and the food was really delicious. The ambiance is very romantic- great for a date night! You can tell that the owners really care about the customer experience. If I were to give it some critiques just to make it a better place I would say that 1. I noticed that the noise level in the room was not great - they may want to address the acoustics in that room. 2. The lighting. I like a dimly lit restaurant but in this case i think the lighting was a but too dim. We couldn’t read our menus at all without our phone flashlights. lol

I was looking for a place to meet a friend from New York. He drove 45 minutes and I drove about an hour and a half. I am delighted that we chose Bici as the food was spectacular. Very clean, quiet place to eat for lunch. Highly recommended for dinner.

My spouse and I dine out often and always find time to go back to the good ones. Even though Bici is a half hour away from my house, its worth it. We were a table of 4 on Saturday night and every one thoroughly enjoyed their meals. We split some some appetizers which included their daily homemade Gnocchi. It's flat out some of the best you'll ever have. At the recommendation of the host I had a veal chop that was perfect on all accounts. The service was friendly and attentive as usual which completes the dining experience. Until the next time............

My husband and I went on a date night at Bici. We had a lovely evening - the service was superb, the owner checked in with us a few times through the evening and referred to us by name as we were leaving, thanking us for coming. It’s a tiny restaurant - reservations seem necessary and it is BYOB. The affogato dessert is a nice touch, and the owner told us the story of how it wound up in the menu. Very family oriented place, friendly, vibrant crowd. The food was delicious and well-prepared. Parking is in the back, in case you can’t find street parking. I had trouble choosing between menu items, so I’ll have to go back to try something new.

For several years, Bici has been my favorite local restaurant. (I live in Ridgewood.). The menu is creative, and the preparation and presentation are superb. On a recent visit, my friend and I shared a delicate and delicious calamari and arugula salad dressed with a fresh cigarette. My entree was the gnocchi with a lamb ragu— light as air but thoroughly satisfying. My friend savored a risotto primavera. A triumph. But the food alone is only part of what makes Bici special. The staff is welcoming, and the owner is an amicable restauranteur, who visits every table to share culinary anecdotes. He communicates a genuine desire to please his clientele. For this frequent visitor, he and his charming restaurant have never failed to please.

Hi enjoyed Bici overall. I like the BYOB aspect. While it was busy on a Saturday night, our reservation was ready for us on time. Our service was excellent and we weren’t rushed.

We had the Malfatti, which was good. It didn’t blow me away, but I enjoyed it. We also had the fried calamari salad. Also the same that it was good, but I wasn’t blown.

We split the Chianti risotto. It was cooked nicely, but again- was good, not great.

We took home the Tiramisu and it was excellent! Our waiter threw in a cannoli for my husband at no cost and it was also excellent.

Our main meals were the short ribs which were great and the mushroom fettuccine, which could have been great it if had a touch more salt.

We would go back to Bici, but I do think that night all of our food were just missing a hit of salt or seasoning. The service was impeccable.

Second time to this restaurant. We had to change our reservation from 4 to 2 since our friends bailed on us and the hostess was very accommodating. The food was very good. They allowed us to split some appetizers without a hassle. Saturday night and not really rushed. We definitely go again.
