We were lucky to have dinner last saturday at Erba on their last day opened as a pop up in the old Harry's Pizzeria locale in Downtown Dadeland. We were told that it will reopen in a month in a new locale on a permanent basis. I can say that I am looking forward to it, as their farm to table approach to Italian cuisine was a resounding success.

We love ERBA. They are currently closed and opening early April in their new spot. Can’t wait to go there again.

We were seated outside next to a exhaust fan which made it very very noisy - and frustrating. However, the server was polite and apologetic and assured us we would be well served despite the noise. He explained this was a temporary pop up, as they were building out their new restaurant & soon move into to a permanent space.
The food was delicious and the service good.

We’d been meaning to visit ERBA for a while. We’re sad we waited so long to go. The pasta is absolutely amazing- all fresh and you can taste it. Despite ordering rich dishes (a fettuccini and an agnolotti) the pata itself felt light somehow. The recommended wine was really delicious and a perfect accompaniment.

The service was excellent as well. Very attentive, made recommendations, asked how we were enjoying everything. Really really great.

Highly recommend the lemon olive oil cake..... delicious and not overly sweet. A great ending to a wonderful meal. Can’t wait to go back.

We enjoyed several small menu items. Some were very good, some just ok. I look forward to going back and trying some other dishes.

I would like to see more menu offerings for both food and wine.

The food was delicious. However tapas portions for Italian food is unusual but it works if the waiter explains how much is enough.

I’ve been looking for good Italian food that’s close to home for a while. ERBA was a delightful surprise! Everything we ordered was sooo good. The pistachio crusted, truffle honey radicchio salad, the 1/2 chicken and, the mackerel Fish dip on fresh ciabatta toast was the best ! The taste is fresh, organic, and Italian food brought to a new level of flavors and goodness. Don’t let me forget the pasta!! Can’t even describe it, you must try it! Made reservation and when we arrived it was packed but we were seated within 15 min of our reservation time. Glad we found you ERBA and can’t wait to return. Oh!! Excellent selection of regional Italian wines. My favorite, the Bartolo .

Excellent super-fresh approach to cooking. Compact wine list that is very well selected and well priced. Good range of pasta and starters emphasizing fresh produce. A handful of larger main courses but the emphasis here is on smaller portions with loads of flavor

First time dining there. Food was creative, scrumptious, fresh, and flavorful combos you weren’t expecting! However, portions and pricing do not match; portions are small. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a big eater, but based on their pricing, the portions just don’t add up. We ordered several different appetizers and main courses…Focaccia, Roasted Sweet Potato, Agnolotti Ricotta, Fettuccini, Corzetti, Gnocchi (all exquisite); nevertheless, it still seemed liked it was not enough food for our party of six. If you’re on a date, you can probably get away with these portions, however, if you are dining with family and like sharing, I would not recommend it (particularly if you have children that eat). We also enjoyed complimentary desserts…all were delicious as well! Ambiance was nice, not too noisy, I would say family friendly if not for the portions. Everyone was professional and welcoming, and service was great. Service would have actually been outstanding if server would have paid just a little more attention to detail, i.e., cleaning up the table in between picking up plates and bringing new meals, etc. Additionally, without asking, the restaurant comped one of our meals, because two of the items we originally ordered were out. Overall, great service, we truly enjoyed our food and had a great time. I would absolutely recommend and dine there again. Bon Appetit!

I’ve been to ghee the chefs first restaurant and fell in love with the food and how amazing it was, so when I heard he was open I got up Erba I knew I had to try. The care in the preparation and flavors of the dishes was masterful. The waitstaff was very attentive and knowledgeable and the tiramisu was the best I’ve ever had and nothing like the tiramisu I’ve had before. This is my second time here and it will not be my last. Keep making your delicious food, I will go to any place the chef opens.

Erba was highly recommended by a reputable source but I was not impressed. The menu was very limited. We sat outside next to a huge extractor for the garage and the noise was terrible. There were plenty of tables inside but hostess said everything was booked even though many of these “booked “ tables were still empty when we left. The food arrived very sporadically and some of the members in my party were finished before the rest of us got our entrees.

Multiple service people. No idea who was “our” waiter. Some better than others so tough regarding tip. Waited an extra long time for our appetizer.
Mentioned twice and response was it’s coming - “don’t bother us” attitude.
Fish “entree” was more of a fish side, absolutely nothing other than a wedge of lemon. Was told after one diner mentioned it that this restaurant was more of a tapas place. We pointed out that nowhere on signage or menu is that stated. Waiter seemed to notice that for first time. So expensive.

This place used to be a pizzeria, and it has been left with the same table set up and ambience. There is no tablecloth or place sets, so it is very casual, yet the prices are comparable to a high end restaurant. Food was excellent, but don’t count on sharing much as portions are small. So with that in mind, I would recommend this restaurant for the quality of the food.
