Italian
A multi-regional Italian Osteria by Chef Angelo Auriana & Matteo Ferdinandi, BRERA Osteria at The Grand Canal Shoppe at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas is a hybrid of an informal osteria 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.

The seating is out in the concourse and very loud. The food is excellent. We had the chefs sample and the salmon and veal tortellini were among the best I have ever had.

Service was very slow. The seats were so close together that people couldn’t walk around the restaurant without bumping into the diners. Food was not very good.

Had an amazing time last night! This restaurant was in the Venetian on the strip, and although the walk in was super long it was definitely worth it!

We started with the East Coast Oysters in a Fennel Mignonette, which were seriously to die for. Of all the oysters I’ve tried in the last year or so, these definitely topped them all. Smooth, flavorful, excellently prepared.

Then we had the Beef Tartare (w. bread on the side) with edible flowers, made with Wagyu Beef. Had a great mouthfeel and flavor. Definitely done right!

For the main course I had the Risotto Milanese, with saffron infused aged acquerello rice, bone marrow (a first for me) and roasting jus. Super rich and cooked to perfection. The saffron flavors really came through! The bone marrow was super tender and smooth, though I don’t think it’s something I’d get on the regular. I also had the Sea Scallops w. celeriac purée, roasted tomatoes and demi-glace. The scallops were seriously perfectly cooked, not tough or rubbery. The sauce was a perfect companion.

For dessert, I tried the Passionfruit Panna Cotta. Although a little runnier than I prefer most panna cottas, this one knocked it out of the park! Not too heavy, definitely light and refreshing.

The others at my table ordered Caesar Salads, Tortellini, Salmon, and Bread Puddings. The table bread smelled amazing.

Definitely recommend this place if you end up in Vegas!

Our experience at Brera Osteria inside The Venetian was a mixed bag. We had a Saturday night dinner reservation at 6:15. Took about 20 minutes to be seated which was not a huge deal. We were seated in the corner table of the restaurant closest to the public walkway and performers. Because of the way the tables and chairs were configured, our server couldn’t even reach our table we were tucked so far in the corner. He had to lean over the table of ur very close neighbors and sometimes leaned on the back of the poor man sitting next to us to deliver drinks or plates. It was very uncomfortable for us and everyone around us. It was not the server’s fault - he was doing the best he could with the situation he was given but it was a very awkward setup.
My second major issues was not the restaurant’s fault but it was so incredibly loud in The Venetian. There was an opera singer right next to the restaurant who was just doing his job but it was so very loud and echoey in the room that it was impossible to talk to my husband over dinner let alone think. We just sat and stared at each other most of the time.
The food was great. Service was otherwise good minus the very uncomfortable situation we were all it.

Beautiful feeling of Italy as you eat authentic pastas and gelato! We did feel like it took a long time to get our food. About 1 hr and we started getting a bit antsy. It came out 5 mins later. They were very busy!

Everything was wonderful. The staff were friendly and quick. The ambiance was lively with a pianist/ opera singer in the court as well as everyone walking around.

We had the Caesar salad to start and a shared Margherita pizza. The salad was extremely fresh with whole anchovies instead of the typical blend into the dressing itself. The pizza at 12 inches was perfectly cooked with a thin crust. Traditionally “soggy” to be eaten with knife and fork.

Incredible gnocchi dish, almost perfect…only missing pine nuts, but otherwise a must try for gnocchi and pesto fans. Looking forward to a future visit, but might be tough not to order gnocchi again.

Our server was incredible, the food was out of this world and being able to listen to a man sing live opera music while you dine made this dinner the best date night. My wife and I shared the squash blossoms as an appetizer. For dinner she had spaghetti with a pecorino black pepper sauce. I had the wild boar and truffle parpadelle pasta. For dessert we had espresso martinis and shared the tiramisu. Highly recommend this restaurant for authentic Italian food.

Food is terrific
We had early dinner and whole staff having some sort of team meeting. We were totally ignored until I started waving arms.
Asked for a glass of wine that took forever to show up
They need to work on service have a meeting on your time but mine

Simply incredible! Two Uber drivers both recommended this restaurant as their favourite Italian in Vegas and honestly, it did not disappointment. The food, wine, atmosphere and service were all impeccable. Alessando was our waiter and he could not have done enough for us. He brought out a small desert with a personalised happy birthday message for my wife. We would both highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys Italian cuisine.

My wife’s scallops were some of the best she’s ever had. I had beef cheek for the first time. Melt in your mouth. Octopus appetizer was outstanding. Wines are pricey. Service was excellent and ambience in the Venetian St Marks Square is lovely with a true outdoor feel.

I wasn't impressed. It had vegetarian options and ways to make dishes vegetarian, but I have to say the saffron risotto I had lacked flavor.

The service was good, the vibe was right, but for the pride I was was hoping to be blown away. It didn't happen.
