the 2 appetizers, ricotta capunsei pasta and the pork shank were excelllent. the churros for dessert with gelato was very good.

the server, although friendly, could’ve been more attentive and the service overall should be more polished at these prices.

we were sat at a table far from the others without music or the lit trees - not much ambience at all. we brought our dog, so perhaps that was why.

The food was amazing. The drinks were a bit overpriced but it was a nice setting. I really enjoyed the cacio e pepe. The waiter for our table was very nice and gave us the right amount of attention. Would recommend!

Service was slow and not coordinated. It took a while to place the order even though they knew we were ready. The appetizers came with the food after a long wait.
The food was good and the weather was perfect for sitting in the patio so it made it a good experience overall.

Appetizers were great. The beef tartare— delicious and beautifully presented. Decent value.
Pasta mains were superb. Capunsei and Ravioli are stand-outs.
Drinks and Desserts were great. Again, decent value.
Service is top-notch. very clean, very safe, COVID compliant, masked staff, with generously spaced tables in a big outdoor area.
Free easy safe parking in a private-ish lot.
Overall a solid place to take a date to.

The staff seemed to just want us out fast. We sat down and everything came all at once. Two appetizers and the pizza got to the table before our water and cocktails and the server just walked by and slapped the check down without asking if we wanted anything else. In and out we were there less than 25 minutes. The food was good but I could have had a more welcoming and memorable experience at McDonalds.

Food was good as always , I don’t understand the charge of $3 per person ( because you clean more??? ) . As a owner myself of business I think that’s the wrong thing to do . Just my opinion . At the end I gave $ 10 dollars less of tips and that reflect the job of the waiters. I will wait till the extra cost are avoided and in the meantime I will go to another Italian restaurant.

Every January, I get together with a couple of girlfriends to do a weekend in DTLA, and this is where we meet for our first dinner - or rather, we order a whole bunch of appetizers and wine and cocktails and it's fantastic. We've done this three times now -- but my husband had never been. So we made a DineLA reservation this weekend so I could finally share this great restaurant with him.

I had a little trepidation about the pandemic setup and the air quality from the fires, but the latter wasn't too bad and Brera's outdoor patio was absolutely lovely (something we never tried in winter!) Tables were set far enough apart that we did not feel unsafe... and the food continues to be fantastic. We will be back.

We had a wonderful meal at BRERA dining al Fresca. All the tables were spaced apart and it was a really nice atmosphere. They had a limited menu that featured items from BRERA and Sixth+Mill. The octopus appetizer was delicious and the Salmon dinner, amazing! And their pizzas are always great!! I can’t wait for things to go back to normal and no one has to wear masks at restaurants.

The environment is intimate and beautiful. It felt like I was in another country which was further confirmed when the owner of the restaurant helped us choose our wine and food. His deep passion not only for the food and experience, but even people, was intoxicating and made the night one to remember. If the food was mediocre, I would still be raving about my experience, however the food was INCREDIBLE. I have never had Italian food that good in DTLA or even the entire LA area. I was blown away by the experience on all levels and have already recommended BRERA to many friends.

the food was so good... the pizza was yummy as always and the soft shell crab was outstanding...fried to perfection. Crunchy and not oily at all. Very light. And the canoli were some of the best canolis I have ever had. the shells were so thin and light, I have no idea how the didn't break when they were getting filled and the filling was delightfully creamy and heavenly. YUMMMMM.

I had lamb chomps well done, I’m basic, forgive me. They were delicious regardless. The cous cous was so well cooked and seasoned I was sliding pieces of lamb chop to get every morsel. My sister has the NY strip, 12oz, medium well cooked to perfection, seasoned well. My only advice is not get the regular water. It’s tap and taste like it’s straight from the woods, minerals and all. I was only offered san Pellegrino or “regular water”, if not a fan of regular water like myself, specific bottled!

Had the chocolate Alaska for dessert, also recommend!
