My wife and I went here for New Year's Eve dinner and were not overly impressed. The place was very nice and the staff when they got to us were very accommodating. The bread and two appetizers were promising. We started with the Polpetti or Meatballs where the sauce was the star and we also had the Malfatti which is a ricotta dumpling which was very good. We then both ordered off the specials menu and were disappointed as we found the to be bland and almost flavorless. I had the Monkfish which I found could have used any kind or sauce or seasoning of some kind. I have had this in other restaurants and was very pleased. My wife had the Salmon which she found to be bland. We skipped desert.

Always a pleasure the food and service is excellent. I had the grilled veal chop and it was so tender and delicious. Thank you for a wonderful New Year's Eve, such a great way to end the year and begin a new!

Bici is always wonderful in every way. Since Marcelo opened this restaurant, it’s been great and he’s always been there to assure the best experience for diners. He also walks around and greets and is really a nice guy.

Ambience, food and service is very good. The owner, Marcello personally greets every customer and makes them feel welcome. Also will lead by example serving tables, etc. My only recommendation would be to slightly broaden scope of offering or rotate offering with greater frequency.

This was our second visit to Bici but not the last. Everything about the experience was excellent, from the food to the service as well as the ambiance. There are so many wonderful sounding entrees that I tried to talk myself out of ordering the veal chop again on our second visit. I lost the argument and, happily, ordered it again. It's a bit of a trip from our home but worth the ride. And we just learned there is parking on site! Another good reason to go back.

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!!!

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.

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 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.
