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.

    Awesome food and great service. Would definitely go back now that we found it. Pappardelle is the dish to get. Everything else was good, but it was fab! Maybe a little too noisy for a date night/talking, but everything else A+.

    This is our second meal at BRERA and enjoyed it completely. We split the orange salad and Donzelle. Both were interesting in a very delicious way. The salad dressing was balanced and complimented the greens and persimmons. The charcuterie was also delicious. For dinner, we had Pisarei and Risotto with duck breast. The risotto was rich but was balanced by glasses of Barolo. Service was attentive without being overbearing. It was an enjoyable experience overall and we'll go back.

    Once again everything was absolutely delicious! We come to Brera for special occasions as it’s a bit expensive, and the room was loud for my parents (music could be more carefully curated) but we loved everything we ordered and looking forward to being back. Serving staff is great.

    The Experience option offered by Brera was wonderful! Each course (starters, mains, and desserts) came out together family-style so everyone got to enjoy a little bit of everything. The pricing was great and the staff accommodated us when ordering a couple items off of the pre-selected Experience menu. Great atmosphere, delicious food, and amazing staff. What a great way to treat a friend out for his birthday. Thanks Brera Ristoraunte!

    I've been here about a dozen times over the last several months. Each time I eat here I think to myself that I might have just eaten one of the best meals of my life. This place is simply off the hook. Great beer, wine, and cocktails too. Valet is great too.

    We arrived as they reopened for dinner service right at 5 pm, so naturally we were one of only three parties in the restaurant. My partner and I came here for her birthday, a surprise trip to LA to see a hockey game. Due to time and hunger constraints, we opted to enjoy a variety of appetizers instead of each having an entree. The Burratina was so flavorful and much different from the usual Burrata plate we order in Dallas, this one came with roasted squash and almonds, and the cheese was so creamy. Do yourself a favor and go ahead and order the ciabatta with the fresh olive oil. It’ll change your life. The Marrow was also another dish we enjoyed, along with the Beef Tartare and Donzelle with the prosciutto and fried dough with cheese with something we’ve never experienced before. We were happy with the food and service but I was disappointed because either my note was not received or simply nothing was done to make it a special birthday for my partner, though it was a delicious birthday supper. I left a message on open table to the restaurant informing them it was my partners birthday and to please make it special for her. Again, either you didn’t receive my message or it fell through the cracks.

    Had a wonderful time dinning At Brera the night before Christmas Eve. Took the family out for a nice dinner was trying the place for the first time. Service was fantastic the atmosphere was great and food incredible. We had a slight delay on my daughter’s pizza order the kitchen was very busy. Our server as well as the staff and the manager made sure to come by numerous times and apologize directly about the delay. They made it right and the night was great. I appreciate that they treated my daughter like an adult and made her feel special. I will certainly go back as the service and staff were great. Thank you

    The food was very mediocre at best and I really wanted to like this joint. The Anchovies, Caper & Olive Salad had absolutely NONE OF THE ABOVE and the dressing was like Krogers off the shelf vinaigrette. The rest of the meal was tolerable and they had plating issues in the Kitchen as the assorted items on entrées plate were different temps at presentation. The Tiramisu was excellent/authentic but my wife’s meal was ALSO nothing to write home about. Great Service, lovely comfy ambience. If the meal was half price it still would have been over-priced. Also, very limited menu. Caveat Emptor.

    Waitress wasn’t the most attentive. For example, finished my first drink and I was never asked if I wanted a second one. When we were finished with our meal I had to flag down another person because it took so long for our waitress to come around. I was ready to pay immediately when the check finally came but then she disappeared again and another worker noticed I had been waiting and came by to pick it up. Food and ambiance was great though.
