$31 to $50
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.

Incredible atmosphere and the food is always exceptional.. Thank goodness they keep certain dishes on the menu . The pork shank is a real winner. The fresh baked bread is a great new addition. We have missed not eating there more often during these last two years.

Olman is an excellent server and suggested a new dish on the menu, the CASARECCE, which was very tasty. We had the swordfish and the Ceasar salad. The swordfish was excellent with the escarole and sun choke puree.

One of the best Italian food I’ve ever had in LA, better than Bestia and Rossoblu on my book. The service was thoughtful and well executed. Price of the food is decent but slight disappointed with the progression of food, the main entree came out before the pasta dishes. Otherwise, the taste of their food is very much comparable to Gucci Osteria, which is a high accolade that I could give this place. Just found another favorite. I just wish they’ll serve seafood pasta or seafood salad in the future. Overall, worth dining for.

Love the food and ambience but it is one of those places that wants you to decide on ordering everything all at once which is inconvenient if you want to enjoy a slower dining experience. Would love it if they would let me order some starters with cocktails then decide on entrees. Other than that I love the restaurant.

Absolutely a must visit spot in LA! If you like family style meals, this is the spot for you. Too many good things to try to get one dish. 10/10

I though the food was outstanding (if a little small) and the atmosphere made for a great evening. In addition, the service was top-notch and the menu was diverse, with plenty of options. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

The food was mediocre given the prices. The cocktails were decent. The service was horrendous: multiple servers kept coming to our table and at one point the manager came to take our order but then literally grabbed a server and told him to take our order instead. There are far better options in the area.

The location, in an offbeat part of downtown LA, is all part of the ambience. The staff are super friendly and are very attentive. We went for dinner on a Saturday night, and the place was very busy, but our food came out in a timely manner and it all tasted great! We had the following appetizers and they were awesome: zucchini blossoms (highly recommend) and grilled polpo (octopus and really tasty). For dinner, we had the Tagliatelle pasta, and it was perfect! Brera does a great job in all areas. HIGHLY recommend it!

This restaurant never disappoints, so we keep coming back. Today my husband had the pasta with red meat sauce, Mom had the meatballs, and I had the mushroom, ham w/pesto pizza. We all enjoyed every bite. Jennifer at the reception was gracious and efficient as always, as was the wait staff.

The appetizers are delicious and good choices for the meat eaters to the vegans. A couple of the entrée are a little off though. Portions will be tasty but sometimes the balance of flavors are a mix bag.

A perfect dinner experience. Clay was an exceptional choreographer for our evening. Helped us choose an exceptional wine (Barolo), was patient with our slow ordering, and helped with a food allergy. The food and cocktails were insanely delicious (la cura , Caesar salad, spinach gnocchi and pork shank) and we will return again for sure when in town! Super fun vibe.

the tagliolini with white truffle was stellar. We enjoyed the snapper but with lentils were a tad too spicy for the subtle flavor of the fish. Danielle is a great server and very attentive during our meal. My wife enjoyed the Japanese whisky cocktail.
