Biba Caggiano moved to Sacramento in 1969 when her husband joined
a medical practice. At that time Sacramento was a pleasant
laid-back city, but lacked restaurant diversity, especially those
serving quality Italian food. After a couple of years of making
exquisite meals for family and friends, and writing several
award-winning cookbooks, Biba opened her now famous Italian
restaurant. Since then, Biba Restaurant has received glowing
reviews with Gourmet Magazine, Travel and Leisure, Conde’ Nast
Travelers and the Wine Spectator.
I love Chicago Pizza! The concept of this restaurant was born of
the desire to enjoy the wonderful flavors and textures unique to
Chicago Pizza myself, and also to share them with others.
Researching Chicago Pizza and what makes it so special is
somewhat of an obsession with me. I started making pizza after my
wife Tami and I moved to California from the Chicago suburb of
Palatine, Illinois in 1986.
