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 dining area and bar look great and have a good vibe, but the food and service were mediocre. Carpaccio was bland and the pork shank was tough. Plates were left at the edge of the table with no effort made to serve. Staff disappeared towards the end of the meal. Disappointing.

    Great restaurant w wonderful service, food and wine. The main room inside with very high ceilings and kitchen behind large glass wall. Comfortable wooden chairs and many choices of table size. Very nice bar to the side for snacks and a meeting place. Wonderful outdoor patio with heater in the winter and lots of greenery in the summer to cut the heat. Again, lots of choices in seating. The wine list is extensive and the sommelier Francine (also a co-owner with her husband) is exceptionally knowledgeable. The prices are better than most similar restaurants and there are several bargains under $50. Last, the food is exceptional. You can have a complete meal with appetizers only, most of which can be shared. There are 6 or 6 pizzas and the basic Margherita is perfect w thin crust and cheese and tomato sauce. The main courses I have had (fish) are good but I do not eat meat so cannot comment on the steaks. It can be a little loud indoors on a busy night but the patio is always comfortable and much quieter. And you can bring your dog!!

    We had our usual green bean salad but chose the campo pizza which we've never had before. it was excellent with additional tomatoes. My wife and I then split the scallops and bucatini which were both stellar.

    The food was subpar and not well flavored. For this restaurant the ship has sailed. Our bread was frozen in the center and not freshly baked as advertised in the menu. Dessert was overly sweet. The umami experience from the Brera region was missed. It is sad and we hope this restaurant returns to its once glorious fame. Had the Berratina -no flavor. Papardelle- too salty

    Carbs that are worth it! Upscale warehouse setting, truly fitting for the Arts Disctrict vibe. I immediately noticed that the clientele was super diverse! Chic older folks, families, grown up's in their mid20's-30's all in different shapes, sizes, and cultural backgrounds. My friends and I tried 2 of the apps, a few pastas, & couldn't leave without desserts. The salmon croquttes were fried really well, but felt a bit heavy and fell a bit flat once we took a bite. The cheese board with sourdough and figs was a total win both aestheically & flavor-wise. Both the gorgonzola and blue cheese which normally can feel a bit daunting because of their funky nature, were creamy and mellow. They paired super nicely with the extra seminole loaf we ordered. Pastas: bolognese-felt a bit too safe, but executed will Ravioli-total game changer gnocchi-surprisingly a crowd pleaser Bucatini-perfect for someone who loves a light spice kick Panna Cotta-tart & light! Gelato: The coffee flavor was our favorite! Tiramisu: The chococate crunch really gave it a nice texture!

    Food was great, acoustics were terrible. Couldn’t hear a word anyone was staying which made it a very difficult dinner experience. There was hardly anybody at the restaurant too so I can only imagine what this place is like when it’s crowded.
