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.

Outdoor patio is great setting for lunch of their yummy Italian food. Free self-parking at lunch in their parking lot. Take home a pizza to go at end of lunch for an easy dinner later. One of our favorite dining spots in LA.

The service was above and beyond and I think the best part about the place. The ambience is great. I got the Brussels sprouts and capansei (sp?). The food was pretty good, but it seemed like it was missing different texture to the dish. The sommelier came out and helped with a great wine choice. I would definitely go back.

Amazing restaurant, ambiance & food. Only problem was our server apparently overcharged an extra $10 on an already generous tip. Now my bf has to dispute charge.

I lived my experience atbBrera. From the valet to the incredibly attentive wait staff, to my exceptionally strong and tasty cocktail and of course the delicious Caesar salad and both dinners exceeded expectations. I will be back and probably on a weekly basis.

Great decor, great ambiance, great food but please don't rush me!

We enjoyed our meal but we had to ask our waiter 3 times to come back later (after we ordered our appetizers) because he kept trying to hurry us to order our entrees. At one point he returned twice in 3 minutes! We had to resort to waving away the staff to stop them taking our plates so we could enjoy our meal and not feel hurried. I totally understand the COVID restrictions and the need to turn tables within a 2 hour time limit but at the pace our waiter was trying to go we would have finished our Friday evening dinner within an hour. The hurried pace definitely affected our enjoyment of what was otherwise a great meal in a cool location.

We enjoyed the tagliatelle and each of us chose the soft-shell appetizer as our entree with the Cesar salad. the soft shell crab with the cauliflower was stellar.

Food was amazing - surprised the pizza was so good too! Overall, great meal, high quality food, great service. Indoors was great atmosphere - outside looked super fun after dark, when we arrived it was still light out and the outdoor parking lot atmosphere didn't look very high end but when we were leaving, the outside looked pretty in the dark with some string lights and I would definitely eat outside.

The food was ok . We ordered the Pizza and the sauce was super salted and the pasta had no salt . We also ordered drinks they were good.

Overall we felt rushed our waiter was constantly rushing us on our menu order seemed that he was giving an outstanding service to the table next to us that was ordering wine bottles .smh Overall I give this place 3 stars . I would come to give this place a second chance.
