    The restaurant surpassed my expectations. The focaccia bread and the ricotta filled zucchini. Flowers were a wonderful start. The eggplant Parmesan, and the cod were super delicious. It’s a great restaurant to hit before going to the movies.

    Superfine Playa is a short walk from our home so we want desperately to love it and support it. We like it... but don't love it. We were seated promptly at our reservation time and our service was very good. The restaurant was busy and the bar was packed. Unfortunately, the food was only "okay" with good textures, but bland flavors. This has been the case each time we've eaten there. With so many other very fine restaurants nearby, we don't feel compelled to return often. In fact, more often we drive to a couple of other favorites.

    ORDER THE PORK CHOP!!! I finally had dinner at Superfine with my best friend last night after months of wanting to try this place. We were greeted immediately at the door and seated promptly. The staff was super attentive throughout our whole dinner. Our waitress Mads was friendly and took time to explain the menu/dishes to us. We ordered the pork chop and lamb pasta- both unique and delicious! Pork chop was nicely seasoned on top of sweet apple- exquisite! Pasta was perfectly al dente, the lamb was soft and tender. The campari tomato appetizer was a wonderful take on caprese salad. Cauliflower with chorizo sauce was a bit too Smokey for my liking. Cannoli with pistachio was so good. It had a crispy, thin outer layer filled with a soft creamy center, marmalade and pistachio finishes. Literally the best cannoli I ever had!

    I love Superfine Playa! We started with the sourdough focaccia with the spicy white bean dip- so yummy. The little gem salad with chicken was fabulous / the chicken breast was served warm and was a very generous portion. The casarrecce pasta with the lamb ragu was my favorite- prepared perfectly al dente and absolutely delicious! I highly recommend Superfine Playa and look forward to my next visit. Food - 5 stars Service - 5 stars Ambiance- 5 stars

    Another great meal at Superfine Playa! Love the seasonal kabocha squash soup. The warm nuts and marinated olives are a delicious and homey appetizer to share. The special coal-roasted beets with a sunflower aioli (a great vegan option that fooled me into thinking it was burrata) were delicious and full of flavor - you won’t miss the dairy! Still, we had the rigatoni with burrata (amazing) and the bone-in ribeye (so much flavor in this dish). The Sicilian cannoli were the perfect toppers to this evening. Great for date night or before or after a movie! Lots of seating options from bar to indoors to heated patio or terrace.

    We had a great experience! Wonderful service from when we were greeted throughout service. We ordered a number of appetizers to share - highly recommend the beets, meatballs and the calamari. For dinner our table shared the steak and sea bass - it was more than enough for our party of 4. We will definitely be coming back.

    This was our second visit to the restaurant. The food was all very good, the service was thoughtful and attentive, the table and holiday ambience glowing and nice. The only complaint is that you took the rigatoni with chicken liver ragu off the menu. It's my partner's favorite dish, and we chose Superfine for a special holiday meal in large part because we expected to find that ragu. We were regulars at Sotto when she first had the dish and became a fan of it. And were excited to have it again when we first tried Superfine this fall. Anyway, everything we had last night was all really good, but sad to miss out on the chicken liver ragu! Please tell chef Sampson!

    Food was way beyond expectations. Eggplant parmigiana was perfectly baked. It’s very rare to find a well made EP. Branzino was super tasty. Zachary, our server, was a delight. The hostess was not particularly welcoming. We will definitely return.

    I came back for the eggplant parm, which was the best I’ve ever had! I shared that along with the equally delicious farro salad that a friend raved about. The service was great & the meal was topped off with a pistachio & chocolate chip cannoli that will also live on in my dreams.

    Really enjoyed dinner at this restaurant last evening. Dishes we had: fried calamari, chopped salad, meatballs, and farro salad. All were deliciously prepared and nicely presented. The meatballs were exceptional. Portions were very ample; prices are not over the top and there are no extra charges for kitchen staff, etc. (Btw, we are angered by all the fees some restaurants charge along with their exorbitant food prices. SuperFine Playa is reasonable for the quality of food they serve and there are no hidden extra fees.....this is a huge plus for this restaurant.) The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food comes out quickly and is the appropriate temperature. All in all, going to this restaurant was an enjoyable experience. We'll not only go again, but will also recommend it to our friends.

    I loved the Aperol Spritz. I could have drunken lots of them!! The tuna appetizer was good. My pasta was underdone and my dads meatballs were too dense and under seasoned. I think the chefs need to work on their skills some more. Deserts were good & bread was good.

    I’m already making plans to bring all of my friends! The eggplant parmigiana was the best I’ve ever had, and the lemon bar was also the most delicious way to end a truly wonderful meal. Oh, and the focaccia? I could have eaten the entire loaf. And the spreads are something I’m going to challenge my husband to recreate ASAP!
