Had a great meal (appetizer and entrees) using the recommendations of the owner, Marcello. This is a place where the owner places a big emphasis on making sure everyone is happy with the service and food. Will definitely come back and highly recommend this as one of the better restaurants in norther NJ.

A gem of a restaurant in Ramsey. The food and service were excellent. Rabbit was on the menu which I find irresistible under most circumstances, and Bici's preparation now ranks in my all-time top favorites. The restrained sauce made the delicate rabbit the star of the dish. The gnocchi with lamb bolognese was a great alternative to traditional meat sauces. The gnocchi were like pillows of softness - not a hint of gumminess which is testament to the skill of the kitchen staff, and the sauce was a perfect balance of lamb flavor without overt gaminess. For appetizers we had the malfatti - a unique interpretation of a ricotta dumpling with layers of flavor that is under-represented on Italian menus. And the mushroom soup appetizer was a full-flavored mushroom bowl not overwhelmed with cream (like many others). The intriguing ingredient here was that it was topped with a savory gelato - mmmmm! We will absolutely return!

This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. We had an early reservation so we were the only ones in the restaurant at first. Everyone was incredibly friendly and attentive. As more people began to fill the dining room it became a little noisy. We liked the decor (nothing over-the-top or cluttered, very nice but not simple either). The food was great, scallops were cooked perfectly, pasta was delicious. Will definitely go back and would definitely invite friends along next time.

Bici was recommended to us by friends who enjoy drinking good wine with dinner.

BICI is a BYOB, so of course we wanted to give it a try. We couldn’t have been more pleased, service, atmosphere, and attention to detail didn’t go unnoticed.
We have been back 3 times this month! We have yet to find a dish on the menu that we don’t like. The chief is very creative, and each dish comes out more delicious. The pasta is made fresh everyday, so it’s amazing!
We were made to feel incredibly welcome by the host Marcello, who interacts with all the tables at the restaurant. We couldn’t recommend a restaurant more strongly.
Enjoy!

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.
