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 started with the delicious Fritinni appetizer; the squash flower was unbelievably delicious as was the salmon fritter. Awesome pork shank- large serving, but I still wanted more due to the incredible flavor and juicy meat. The Picatta pizza was excellent!! Loved the extremely thin crust underneath and the edge of the crust wood fired perfectly. The mezcal cocktails we had were two of the best cocktails I’ve ever tasted….great flavor without being too sweet. Wish we had room for desert!! We will definitely be back for more!!!!!

    Great birthday/early Mother's Day meal. Patio set up was really nice with heaters to offset the slight breeze. Meal was very good. Stand out dishes were the cheese plate, zucchini blossoms, burratina, and risotto. The gnocchi and beef cheeks were so delicious! Great time!

    We were in town for business and my wife found it online and wanted to go. I was excited because I LOVE Italian and she does also, but we don’t go as much as I would like. The food was excellent, portions were great and not over sauced, so you can really taste the flavor of the dish rather than it being drowned out. If there are any critiques, the service felt a little rushed. We were forced to pace our order as the team member was eager to move us on. Maybe, add some toast points with the burrata. We ordered bread, so no big deal, but it would be a nice touch. These are only personal opinions because truly….everything was fantastic.

Although the place is bustling, everyone from the reception to the wait staff treats you with great care and attention. Highly recommend!

    Great place, great food, even better service. I made reservations for my wife’s birthday and they were very accommodating with my family’s seating arrangements. The cake fee charged for bringing our own cake was a little annoying but I suppose it’s the norm, like a cork fee.

    The service was pretty slow at the beginning. Waiter took sparkling water order and disappeared for a while, when he came back and took our drink orders we experienced another disappearing act. He later took our dinner orders, and shocker another disappearing act (they completely lost one our our orders). To his credit the manager tried to make it right by comping some of the dinner and rushed the lost order. The food was actually very good, and we liked the ambiance but we left very disappointed.

    The menu continues to evolve and never disappoints. A long-time favorite Risotto Milanese has been replaced wit a wonderful Porcini Risotto, because of the seasonal availability of porcini mushrooms. A mere pork dish preserves the crackling skin of roast suckling pig withe the moist tender Pork. Don’t know how they keep the quality so high!

    The ambiance and atmosphere is spectacular. Our server Edwin was quick to greet us and had great knowledge of the menu and shared the most popular dishes. We started with the Octopus appetizer and shared the pappardelle and the beef cheeks. The portions were just fine and the food was amazing. We will definitely be coming back to visit and enjoy this place and try more dishes. Thanks!
