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 table spacing for Covid makes for a very intimate setting. The food was excellent, as always. Both of our entrees were superb.

Several weeks before, we ate at the sister restaurant, Factory Kitchen. Food was much better. Here, the food was not very inspired or interesting.

Food was super yummy! Was disappointed that for such a high price point the portions are really small and there wasn't any temperature check regarding covid upon entering the restaurant. Service wasn't very impressive either. The staff wasn't outwardly friendly or energetic and had a hard time answering a question regarding a nut allergy. Overall I don't think I would come back unfortunately.

Despite having a reservation, I had to wait 30 minutes for a table. The wait staff was not at all personable. Long waits for any and all requests. The food was amazing and the only good part about my visit.

Service was slow and the food was mediocre. We had reservations at 8pm and was seated around 8:30pm. Once seated, we were served glasses and utensils. We expected water to follow but it never did. We were being obvious looking around for a server. A handful of servers passed us by but never asked us if we have been helped. It was a good 15 minutes until someone noticed us. We asked for water to start and just provided our order of the entrees since the service was so slow. We received our entrees and it was sheer disappointment. The meat (sirloin steak) was dry even with the accompanied sauce. My risotto crustacean was cold and dry. It was my first time here and did they comp an appetizer as they noticed our long wait. The ambience of the restaurant is great but the service and food needs major improvement.

The restaurant is lovely and we have been many times before and will go back. The food is excellent. Unfortunately this time, our service was quite slow. They did try and make it up to us by offering free dessert but it does hurt the mood when service is poor. I hope this was a one off experience!

Everything was great until the owner said your two hours are almost up. So we had reservations at 6 at 750 the dude Owner said your two hours are almost up ya we knew it we were ready to cash out. So we just started coming to this restaurant once a week for the last 6 weeks we thought it was great. But hey if you want loyal customers you should not treat them like the owner treated us. Our bill was close to 300.00 for just the two of us I just hope they can find others that are willing to spend that on a dinner less then 2 hours. You have lost two loyal customers...... because the owner was RUDE......we will NEVER go back again..........

Service was rather slow. Took a long time to bring out two salads and then the main course came only minutes later. The pizza we ordered was ice cold.

No complaints about the food, however the cocktails were not very good. I tried three separate cocktails on the menu and I was not particularly pleased with any of them.

Service was a little shaky. We had to ask for more water from our waiter. Even at low quality mega chain restaurants waiters are much more on top of making sure water is on the table in suffice to quantity.

My biggest complaints are in regards to two of the restaurants policies. The first was not allowing us to be seated until our entire party had arrived. I had already confirmed the reservation and we were there in person. I can understand this if the restaurant is very busy, but at the time there was plenty of seating both inside and outside the restaurant. There was no reason to make us wait to sit at our table.

The second complaint I have is with their covid service charge. I am very aware that the restaurant industry was hit hard by the pandemic, but no other restaurant I’ve been to in LA since this pandemic started has charged me $3 per person as a surcharge. This is a greedy practice and a mistreatment of your customers. This particular restaurant is one of several award winning restaurants owned by the same people and I highly doubt it was ever at risk of permanently closing. You claim this fee is for cleaning, but cleaning tables is something you do anyways regardless of when there’s a pandemic or not.

My advice is to people is to take your business elsewhere. There are many other great restaurants in the area that do not charge this fee and will allow you to sit at your table regardless if everyone is there if you have a reservation.
