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.

This was my first time having lunch there. Sadly, it does not compare to the dinner experience. The lunch menu did not include any of the amazing dinner options. My pasta was just average. The service was ok, but lacked the finesse of the dinner staff.

One of the worst experiences I’ve ever had at a restaurant. Had a reservation but didn’t get sat until more than 30 minutes afterwards.

Salad tasted like grass, horrible. Cocktails were difficult to drink, tasted like a frat garbage can.

For food, I got pork. It was gross, tasted like crock pot cooking that someone forgot to season. My girlfriend got pasta, she said it tasted like kid’s food from the Cheesecake Factory.

Walked out for $60/person, way too long after our reservation with worse food than frozen dinner from Safeway

The food was prepared wonderfully and delicious, but arrived merely warm. Forgot to bring a requested ice bucket for a bottle of proseco, forgot to bring a tea that was ordered for desert, and neglected to place a Birthday candle on the Birthday dessert.

The venue is gorgeous. Their drinks are great and the food was pretty good too! I really appreciate the fact that they have a lot of vegetarian options! The service was really good and I had a great time. I’d recommend sitting inside if you can, because the warehouse ambiance is just great. Will definitely return!

Great food, excellent service. Tables were well distanced.

Meatballs were delicious and juicy. Not a fan of stinky cheese yet the zucchini blossoms were tasty. It looks like they grow their own blossoms in the front of the restaurant?
Gnocchi was so soft and pillowy. Pesto sauce was quite potent and herbacious. Pappardelle was al dente and boar sauce was flavorful.
Overall excellent!

The only complaint I have was the wait time to get our table. We had reservations for 9:15 and had to wait nearly an hour for a table and ended up having to sit outside even though we reserved an indoor table. It was really disappointing.
Once we were seated the food was fantastic and our server was perfect.

This was our first dinner out with friends since COVID restrictions. We couldn’t have picked a better place,. Every element of our meal was great—pastas were cooked and sauces perfectly, salads and appetizers made us want to swoon. While the wine prices were a little high, the food prices were well worth the money. And the outdoor ambience was lovely. Staff gets high marks for its COVID/safety measures; we felt completely safe and protected. We highly recommend Oficine Brera for and occasion!

The service at Brera is incredible. We were there a week earlier and not only did our server (Gio - don't know if that's the correct spelling) remember us, he remembered what we had ordered! The service is fast and friendly without feeling rushed. We had a few people stop by to check on us, give us some history of the building and make sure we were having a good experience.
The food is universally delicious.
Can't wait to go back!

Overall, a good experience.
What wasn’t expected was the $3 per person COVID-19 clean-up fee add to every bill

When the buss person only wiped down the top of the table - not the side, chair or booth seating areas.

Got off to a slightly rocky start since no one approached our table for about 15 minutes, when we ordered a cocktail and had a long wait for it to arrive. However, after that no complaints, our waiter was efficient once we found him, and the food was fabulous. Loved the spinach potato gnocchi.

We really loved our evening at Brera. The architecture of the main building is inspiring. They have a huge parking lot with valet, which was a huge bonus. The service was attentive and prompt. We sat outside which was quiet, but not quite as beautiful as it would have been inside. They did have heat lamps which was nice. And it was dog friendly!

Overall it was a good experience. My girlfriend and I went for a date night and it was nice. They called me about 4 hours prior to let me know they could not fulfill my request. So they would do their best to make it a memorable night. I mean if sitting in a dark corner is a memorable night then okay lol.

Food was great. Risotto was just amazing & she loved her raviolis.

Waiter was nice.

Lastly, We received our food fast.

Would definitely go again.
