Officine BRERA Ratings and Reviews
First time at Officine Brera. The food was great as expected.
Service was less desirable and the wait for the food was way too long.
We had a 7:45pm reservation, got there early. We were seated at 7:50pm.
We ordered and received the first courses quickly but we didn't get the main courses until 9:45pm. We ordered wine and basically had to refill our glasses ourselves, same with water. Service was very casual and nonchalent. Maybe Sunday Nights are more relax and slower.
We went to OB for New Year's Eve imagining that they'd be packed until the wee hours. As it was, most people filtered out by 11:30pm and only three tables were left. The staff was super friendly about it, and we all celebrated at midnight. Couldn't have been nicer! And of course, the food is always brilliant!
Great place for amazing Italian! We enjoyed our meal for New Year's Eve and liked the fact that there was no pre-fix special for the event. We had the sage fritters as well as your gnocchi and the ricotta dumplings which were divine! Thanks'. The service was excellent as well. See you soon!
I could not have picked a more suitable spot to celebrate my birthday with my better half. Hailing from the same restaurant group as Factory Kitchen, this warehouse-esque atmosphere boasts spacious seating with high-ceiling and exposed brick walls which I'm always smitten with. The vibe is so much like Bestia, only this one is bigger, newer, and nicer.
Pins and Needles ($13) for my aperitif was not the strong start I had hoped for but it highly improved with the Pisco Sour ($14) I asked the bar to make for me next.
From here on out, the night only got better from one dish to another. The POLPO ($19) was excellent, charred beautifully until it rendered a tender chew and a subtle taste from the ocean. Followed next by the house-made MAFALDINE ($24), the menu says it's chestnut pasta but very reminiscent of a pappardelle with its wide cut long strands. Not only is this version better in texture, it's healthier, and paired so well with the braised goose leg.
It was indeed my day because it felt like I won the golden ticket when I saw FEGATO E FUNGHI ($34) on the menu (menu changes daily, mind you). The arborio rice and foraged mushrooms were excellent while the FOIE GRAS pieces knocked this dish out of the park. Wow. This was glorious in all sense of the word that I'll go as far as saying this may have been the best thing I ate in 2017. Could this night actually get better? Answer: PANNACOTTA DI COCO ($15). My husband had to be the gentleman and left the demolishing to me. I love a good pannacotta and this one was killer. My #1 out there, thus far.
Officine Brera has officially become my favorite Italian restaurant in LA.
We had a family holiday gathering at Officine Brera. The staff was very solicitous of my 90 year old father who has Parkinson's. The food was unusual and scrumptious. Only complaint is that it's noisy, but the charming space is in an old factory, so what should I expect? Seriously wonderful food and efficient, friendly staff.
Chef Auriana ‘s food never disappoints!! His pastas are exceptional, along with superb risotto which is second to none!! However, I was a bit disappointed in the timing of our food coming out of the kitchen: there were 8 of us celebrating a birthday and the food came out at a breakneck pace!! The staff really seemed to be hurrying us along. I’ve been here 4 other times and this is the first time it happened.
Heard a lot of great things about this place and it did not disappoint. We will be returning again but hope the NEXT time, we don't get a table in the back corner of the restaurant. It's really disappointing when you make reservations through Open Table and you get possibly the worse table in the house.
Traveled to the Arts District for an annual Christmas lunch with a longtime friend today. It was my turn to choose the restaurant, and based on my affection for the area, as well as being on Jonathan Gold's 101 Best restaurants (#48), I thought it would make a great choice.
For a restaurant as visually impressive as Officine, I would think the food would be amazing. Unfortunately, I found it just adequate, nothing to write home about, overpriced plates of food you can find anywhere else in town. I sincerely don't understand the hoopla on the 4 & 5 star reviews here. Perhaps I just ordered the wrong things.
1. VERDE ALLA GRIGLIA grilled romaine hearts, roasted cherry tomatoes, pistachios, raspadura. Meh.
2. SALMONE AI FERRI king salmon fillet, fennel citrus salad, butter lemon capers. Cooked perfectly, but visually boring on the plate along side a salad I can make at home that's actually better.
3. An almond ricotta tart that was the best part of the lunch.
Service was excellent, attentive and on point.
I don't get it ... the entire experience just felt stale.
We were referred by a good friend from here in Newport Beach where we live to the restaurant. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and also VIP guests at 29 Rooms, right around the corner. So it worked out great. Francine, the Somm and part owner with Matteo, was so gracious and engaging. Our server was wonderful as well. Great all the way around.

1. Nice staffs.
2. Cozy decors.
3. Great service and servers come and check on you very often. They change your plates and utensils very often as well as clean your table.
4. We went on a Friday, not crowded at all. RSVP was easy.
1-No free parking, valet is $8 +tips and they do not validate. Street parking are free but hard to find parking space.
2- Its very smoky and hot inside because the kitchen is in a open area and some of their food are burn in woods.
3- foods and drinks are a bit expensive.
1-Cured pork back fat with arugula- very good
2- Grill Octopus with watercress-very good
3- Funghi & Granchio - don’t really see the soft shell crab and lobster, maybe it was blended with the rice. Rice tasted kind of hard, very little mushroom. - We didn’t like it. Food not worth the price.
4- Carne Bonvina- prime rib-eye with potatoes and vegetables. - It was a bit hard to bit. It was OK though but then I think with that price I can better steaks somewhere else.
We joke about never needing to go East of the 405 but boy were we wrong. We were thrilled with our 11th Anniversary meal at Officine Brera. It's a great space that felt warm and inviting with the essence of the grill and the bubbling noise of happy patrons. The service was fun and friendly, providing great recommendations and never making us feel rushed. The menu was overwhelming, in that everything sounded good. The meat and fish was cooked to perfection and left us looking forward to a return visit soon.
