Italian
A multi-regional Italian Ristorante by Chef Angelo Auriana & Matteo Ferdinandi, BRERA is a hybrid of an informal trattoria with rather formal cooking in an elegant setting.

A concept influenced by the artsy-cool BRERA neighborhood in Milan Italy, it displays Chef Angelo’s personal culinary identity that emphasizes on the importance of the highest quality fresh ingredients and the use of cooking techniques that are meant to highlight their true flavors and presented in a minimalistic way.

The Cuisine represents the synthesis and the complexity of the cultural heritage of the Italian people through their traditional local recipes reimagined in Chef Angelo’s style that today defines his contribution to contemporary Italian Cuisine.

BRERA RISTORANTE is included in the prestigious 50 Top Italy as number 43° in the category “50 Best Italian Restaurant in the World” both in 2020 and in their recent 2021 award.

    The food was expected to be better. Every dish needed a pinch more salt, just a pinch. The braised Pork shank was a bit dry and should have been served much hotter than it was, more sauce would have helped. The ambiance, service, and management are excellent. The best part of the meal was dessert, the recommended poached pear cake was excellent.

    we had the white truffle tagliolini which was stellar. Our bufalina pizza is our favorite pizza and it was served piping hot. Chef Angelo is a master chef not just with pasta but with seafood. we had the swordfish which was EXCELLENT. our guests had tagliatelle with ragu and the gnocchi and pesto sauce. Our service was attentive and very helpful

    Food was very good! Value could be a little bit better as dishes were slightly high. Spent $200 on 2 people with no alcoholic beverages after tip- plus valet despite there being a large lot one could easily self park in instead of paying $12. I would come back as the braised beef cheek and the short rib pasta were very good - tiramisu was delightful.

    Came here for DineLA. Interior is a renovated industrial facility. It's been cleaned up and modified to look quite pleasant. Though it seems like it wouldn't do well, the temperature inside is controlled nicely and was comfortable. It has a full bar and the outside patio area, while not in use during my stay, seems pleasant for just drinks if you're not in the mood to dine. I had the DineLA course, which had roasted bone marrow for the starter, braised pork shank for the main, and a hazelnut choux for dessert, and I added a porkchop express as my beverage. My date had the octopus as the starter, lamb chops for the entree, and housemade pistachio ice cream and a glass of red wine (I forgot the name, it was recommended by the waiter and it was nice) For my set, the roasted bone marrow was okay. Savory & good presentation; but to poorly summarize it, it was small bit of seasoned fat/marrow flavor that I scraped onto crispy toast with garnishes. Tasted good but was kind of disappointing after the initial presentation. The braised pork shank was cooked perfectly as were the potatoes, but the flavor was pretty lackluster. Reminded me of a Chinese marinade from Chinese Rice wine and not much else. The serving size was large but the flavor was disappointing. The hazelnut choux was good, very well done. My Porkchop Express felt like a variant of a whisky sour but I liked it. For the set price, it was okay, not bad, not good, but you also get a nice ambiance. Maybe get the swordfish next time. My date's set was much better, octopus was good, cooked well and light, lamb was exceptional, and the pistachio gelato was amazing. All in all, about $200 for everything; I'd probably skip the DineLA course next timme unless something else is offered. Service was good, ambiance is nice, a bit noisy, and seating is plentiful and comfortable. Pictures are worth a thousand words, so judge the visuals from that. Last thing is, it's in a sketchy part of LA and valet parking is $12

    I found this restaurant because I was searching for a restaurant who made Risotto Milanese after I returned from Milan where I had an absolutely amazing Risotto. Brera's is right up there almost like the one in Milan. So I've returned 4 times now just for the Risotto Milanese. I am not a fan of salads not being chopped - so I ask them to cut it up. I like the Pizzas. My son had a steak that he said was amazing but it was very expensive so I'm glad to hear it was amazing.

    We sat outside. The ambiance and service are great. The food was terrible and pricey. My fish was dried out and cold and the pizza was sub par. No flavor in any of the dishes. Even the Caesar was fair.

    Great eatery with a high energy level. The menu is very authentic Northern Italian cuisine with some nice LA flourish. The appetizers were solid but not spectacular. I would suggest you not order the octopus unless you absolutely LOVE octopus. The mains were spectacular. The gnocchi was flavorful and cloud like. The white truffle pasta was outstanding (just make sure you check the price before ordering). The portion size for each was just right (aka correct Italian portions, not American). The deserts were also most enjoyable, particularly the pear cake.

    I am disappointed with the food. It was bland and boring. We ordered the hamachi which had a lot of mayo and was very fishy. The beef tartare did not have any taste. The burrata looked like burrata but had zero sweetness or creaminess. The worse was the halibut which was very dry and was laid on top of a few broccolis which were just plain steamed. The sauce that was decorating the plate also added no special flavor to the dish. The only item that was good was the pear cake. We had out of town guests and was very disappointed with the preparation of the dishes.

    Food overall was decent, but a bit disappointing given our expectations. Desserts (gelato and pear cake) were excellent and easily the best part of the meal. Pizzas were pretty good, in particular the Diavolina, the zucchini blossoms stuffed with cheese were quite good, and they have a good wine list. The gnocchi and bucatini were both decent but a little bland and lacking in flavor. The hamachi was not good, lacked seasoning and tasted fishy. Except for desserts, we felt all of the dishes were a little lacking in something, whether flavors or taste. The interior of the restaurant is a towering industrial space that looks cool. It was a bit loud even though the restaurant was less than half full, and I would be concerned about sound levels if the restaurant is full.
