Biga San Diego

Named after an age-old fermentation process used for Italian breads and pizza doughs, Biga is a classic celebration of authentic artisanal cuisine. From our expansive, white Carrera marble countertops to our two 5,000 lb. Italian-made, 900 degree wood-fired ovens, your senses will stir with anticipation upon entering our elegant, fast-casual space.

Biga is more than a pizzeria, serving an Italian-influenced breakfast, plus focaccia sandwiches, salads, bruschettas and wood-fired dishes such as Fried Polenta and local, pasture-raised Porchetta for lunch and dinner. Our menu is ever-changing, based on what’s in season and available from local farms and purveyors. The integrity of ingredients we use is paramount, with no canned sauce or frozen ingredients used in any of our dishes. Sausages and desserts are made and handcrafted under our roof. We also feature artisanal gelatos and a coffee bar fueled with locally roasted beans, ground on our state-of-the-art Italian espresso machine that puts out some of the best coffee drinks in San Diego… All at an affordable price.

We’ve gone the extra distance so you don’t have two – from the best salami on this side of the Atlantic flown in from a small Italian charcuterie shop in N.Y., to the 200-year-old Biga “mother dough” that goes into making our handcrafted, Neapolitan-style pizza crusts and focaccias.

We offer an upscale, affordable countertop experience at Biga, where you can see into our demonstration kitchen to view chefs pulling fresh mozzarella, or plucking herbs from a 15’ indoor living herb wall as part of our lively preparation process. And when your dinner meal is elegantly presented at your table, it will round out the experience with true Italian style, and flavors that match.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Biga rises above the mainstream to please everyone who is searching for affordable Italian fare with exquisite, authentic flair.


Biga is a unique Italian culinary experience that nurtures your heart and soul through locally sourced, handcrafted food in a welcoming community setting.
