What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.1

All-day Venice spot Superba Food + Bread proves that sometimes sequels are better than the original.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

It’s rare when you can say everything from apps to dessert was prepared perfectly and 100% delicious but our meal last night was. Terrific service too.Smoked trout app and date pudding were standouts.

This was my third attempt to dine at Superba and unfortunately “three strikes and you’re out.” This restaurant has an excellent wine selection and a wonderfully friendly service staff, but unfortunately the kitchen doesn’t deliver. It must be staffed by culinary student dropouts who bring great menu selection ideas but have no idea on how to prepare them. Go by for a glass of wine, a nice chit chat with a server and take your meal elsewhere.

So good that after a wonderful breakfast, we were tempted by the dinner menu and returned for a great meal. The baked goods were creative, beautiful and delicious. The Breakfast was delicious and many healthy options. Then Dinner was even better. Only beer and wine, but great sake based cocktail.

I highly recommend Superba. I had made a reservation through Opentable and found out at the last minute 5 more family members would be joining us. I called the evening before and they were able to accommodate our whole party without any issues. The customer service was outstanding. food and drinks are fabulous.

Overall, food was good and atmosphere was fun; however, two guests in our party ordered the Branzino, and it was fishy and not seasoned well.

I loved this place! - even though everything wasn't to our specific taste. My girlfriend had one of the salads, and I had the bread and butter and the lamb. My girlfriend salad was absolutely delicious but had more dressing then was necessary. My bread was amazing in the butter was good, but it was literally soaked in butter, it was too much. My lamb was so tender and mostly tasty, but the glaze was very heavy and sweet, they could have gone a little easier on it. We realized that we don't eat as much sugar and salt as others, but most people would have really enjoyed the food, and we did like it quite a bit. Overall we recommend Superba, very wide menu also.

Started with an appetizer, fried cauliflower... very disappointed. Extremely plain. No flavor whatsoever to the dish with the exception of the dipping sauce which was just ok. I had amazing fried cauliflower at other establishments. Just didn't understand the neglect with this dish... especially when it came to the main plates which were outstanding and deserved to be raved about!

Superba is a good place, not very good or outstanding but a good neighborhood place that becomes your go to place for a bite. You know you're going to get a consistent meal at somewhat inflated prices, in a nice atmosphere, with solid service. There can be some confusion with the menu when items that are in the bigger plates section are smaller portions than starters or sides. Overall a solid place to visit

Overall the space is great, off hours are probably better than a lunch rush if you have a real job to get back to.

Salads are worth the premium price, wine by the glass is pretty good and the beer selection is superior.

Disappointed when ordering fries as a side and they come without a crispy bit in the whole order. I might even go so far to use the word flaccid. The 15 minutes for properly cooked replacement killed the timing of the meal. No comp was offered, which was disappointing considering they were fries.

The brightest spot at Superba Food & Bread is undoubtedly the post meal visit to the bakery counter where the requisite baguette is purchased for dinner. One of my favorite in all of LA. Great crust, moist interior, sweet not salty. Yum.

Superba is a great casual restaurant. I always enjoy it, I’m dreaming of the bread. Don’t expect to have a quiet romantic dinner there, lots of families. Choose the patio for lower noise volume.

I had heard so many great things about Superba, so I was a little disappointed with our dinner experience. Was pretty underwhelmed. Enjoyed the tomato toast appetizer but the rest was just ok. Maybe better for breakfast and lunch. Will choose elsewhere for dinner next time.

We had to ask for wine list. We had to ask for drink refills. We had to request coffee.

So basically, no upselling was done to promote the restaurant.

Would have ordered Patsy if offered.

If you go for dinner, you MUST get the bread, butter & chive thingy! You’ll need that knife to fight your fellow diners for the other piece of bread!
