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.

    We’ve eaten here before but this go round was very disappointing. The yellowtail crudo was not chilled enough and flavorless, also super tiny. The beef tartar was also flavorless and served in a shape that was very unappealing and needed at least one more piece of toast. The ravioli and the parpadelle tasted like the same dish in different shapes. The pasta was a good texture, but the sauces were bland. We don’t mind paying well for a high quality meal in a beautiful ambiance, this time it just wasn’t worth the money.

    This is our family's go to spot for birthdays and anniversaries and when people from out of town visit. We got to know the staff during the pandemic and they are really lovely and caring people. And the food is amazing. The pizzas are some of my favorite in the whole city. I am also a Bolognese freak and their recipe is fabulous. We order it on every visit. Do yourself a favor and come eat here. Once you do you'll add it to your rotation.

    The food was amazing. The blossoms burned my entire mouth and I would still eat 90 of them right now. It was my first tartar experience and that was perfection. I ordered 3 pastas for the table and they were all amazing but the caccio a pepe was to die for. The ambiance was great. Gio was the best server. I loved this experience and we will definitely be returning.

    Old factory turned into restaurant and very comfortable. Industrial style was done very well and loved the surroundings. Food was really good though a little salty. Waiter was very knowledgeable about menu and able to answer questions. Service was very good and tables weren’t jammed together. Taking off points because it was not easy to find and valet. Signage was hidden behind tree foliage and when we called the hostess tried to help, but wasn’t really sure, but we made it after circling the area. Also to use the valet you had to provide your cell phone for the ticket. Which then you have to register your personal information, name, phone, email, car make/model and plate. They charge for valet and since they required all this information, I suspect they sell it too, which generally leads to spam emails/texts. The great experience inside was muddied by the poor experience outside.

    Great food and presentation! Prices are on the lowest end around $25 but go up to $40 on their entree side. The team greatly enjoyed the food. Despite it being a lunch service and the restaurant not seeming to be super busy, service was confusing as a server never introduced themselves to our table and were not as attentive as expected for the price range. A huge plus is they have a big lot for easy parking. Overall, definitely worth a stop for the food but maybe it was an off day for service.

    We had an amazing experience celebrating our anniversay with our kids. We had three starters including Octopus, meatball and donzelle with salami and prosciutto. We had a pizza to share and it's a must at this place. The pasta dishes were in point. Gnocchi was our favorite. I highly recommend their aged ribeye which was grilled to perfection on wood flame. Desserts were sublime. I have been coming here since it had opened and am alwasy impressed

    The restaurant is in a great location. Food was just okay. Not something I’d crave or seek out, but decent. Service was a bit to be desired. They didn’t properly check in my open table so they tried to give me a no show.

    The food was divine. Each dish was crafted to perfection. The only note I have is the length of service. I do understand that staff was hit with the dinner rush, but there was a delay in a shot order that took 20 minutes to receive as this was requested after the food was served. Aside from that, everything else was fantastic.

    Loved the ambiance and the efficiency of the serving staff. Ordered the beef tartare, a few cocktails, gnocchi, tiramisu, and a cappuccino. Each item was unique, flavorful, and absolutely worth it. After dinner, you can enjoy a glass of wine at the bar and sit out on the patio if seating is available. A wonderful night here with my group of employees. This is a lively place with great music, great staff, and great food!

    As an northern Italian living in L.A, Brera is my favorite spot. The recouped industrial space is fabulous and the food is always excellent. There has been no one time that I have not had an exquisite dinner, be it the pappardelle al ragú or the branzino (last night) at Brera, my nostalgia for true and delicious Italian food is gone. Service is kind, fun and agile and the wine list is always a joy too. Bravo, Chef Angelo e a tutta la vostra squadra! Tanya Mordacci
