A very relaxing dining experience for a party of 10. Food was excellent.. ordered the gnocchi, lamb, pork leg .. all were cooked very well. Waitress was excellent! She provided very attentive service and was very good at offering drink suggestions. Would definitely come back!

The meat was amazing. Don't miss the lasagna fritters or the watermelon salad.

The portions were very small. Please consider increasing the amount. I’m not talking about Olive Garden portions but a bit more would have been better.

The dining experience at Brera was enjoyable. My date and I had a hard time hearing each other speak, however due to the high level of noise. The food was good and the drinks were outstanding. I like Factory Kitchen more than Brera, but am willing to visit again soon.

I enjoyed everything. I'm a person of flavor and the octopus, which was one of the dishes of choice really didnt have any to me. My husband gave the same reaction. Dont get me wrong it was good, but it was an expectation that was not me for us. I had the rack of lamb which was Excellent!! He had the Risotto which he said was ok, same thing his expectation was with flavor. But over all it was nice and enjoyable the portions were perfect and we left happy we tried this place.

Wonderful evening. The food was terrific. The Lardo was surprisingly sweet. Chicken livers in pate a choux was nice too. I had the risotto with soft shell crab which I liked very much. But my husband's dish was outstanding -- the double chop pork. Everyone at the table loved that. Beautiful room, especially for a summer evening.

It was a hot mess from the moment we walked in!!! Too many patrons for the amount of servers they had. Service was slow. Too much chaos and the food suffered. I’ve been there at least 10 times and always a great meal but not this time.

Worst service I've ever received and it was over $400 for the meal! They need to get their act together or they're in danger of becoming like Bestia.

We came here for LA dining. If your restaurant does not welcome LA dining customer, then don't even join. Will not recommend to other. Will not return.

We had a wonderful experience dining at Brera. From the moment we walked in we were greeted by friendly staff which continued throughout the night . Our waiter was helpful and informative about our choices and pleasant to talk to . Food was delicious, especially the crab salad . We loved the ambience of the restaurant and will return soon .

I have been to this restaurant several times and consider it a favorite. I don't know what happened, but I ordered fish that was over salted, the skin was soggy, and the accompanying vegetables were overcooked and over-salted. My son ordered a medium rare steak which was well-done. They took it back and gave him a new one, which we appreciated. I hope this was just a bad night...Waitress and sommelier were great.

What a delightful surprise. You would never expect it as you have to drive past skid row to get to the restaurant, but once you are there, it is hip, modern, airy, and offers a modern twist on traditional Italian food.

What a great space! The food presentation was just as beautiful as the venue itself. The pork chop is huge. Perfect pillows of gnocchi too. Mark kept the food timed right and the wine flowing. Altogether a memorable experience. We will be back.

I was blown away by how great lunch was here last December, so expected the same for dinner. Went pre-theater, and have to say everything was just okay. Fish was over-cooked, other dishes were just okay, not up to the price point, or what I experienced before.
