The place was recommended for our dinner by the nearby hotel. The four of us were welcomed warmly, our table was ready, service was cordial and attentive, notwithstanding it was quite busy (but not too noisy, we could have conversation without having to raise our voice, as we at times experienced in other places). The food was very good, nice... More

I had the fresh tagliolini with black truffel as primi piatto and it was great!! I had the tagliata manzano (sliced beef with arugula, not sure if I spelled it correctly) as secondo and it came on a sizzling hot steel plate, which made it different from all the other times I've had this in Italy. Beside the sizzling plate... More

Antica Osteria Stendhal, located at Brera district, looks like a small bistrot with a bit of trattoria. Serving italian cuisine and milanese typical cuisine. A an amazing place to go and tasty some italian traditions. The wine local from the Lombardia was a suggestion from the manager/owner and was a great combination for our meal. #friedseafood #scampspaguetti #pastaalragudeveal #ragu #shrimp... More

Our hotel's concierge spoke highly of this restaurant and made us reservations. We were escorted to our table under a tent, a bit off the sidewalk. The waiter was busy, but eventually we ordered our appetizer and main dish as well as the wines. It turns out that while the restaurant was supposed to be non-smoking, several customers lit up...

This is a casual intimate restaurant with excellent service and fabulous food. Try the sea bass cooked in salt, very fresh fish that is perfectly seasoned and cooked. The octopus appetizer was also delicious. If you like fresh ingredients, cooked simply and perfectly you will enjoy this restaurant.

I was really impressed by The food. The appetizer was very nice and my risotto was simply excellent. The place is also very nice and warm. Maybe The staff could be a bit more friendly. No doubt I will go back!!

Staying in Brera

Neighbourhood Profile
Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an excellent mix between history and modernity, where tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca (galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to admire the architecture of buildings and the design stores. On Sundays, going to the local market is an unmissable opportunity for fashion, style and art. Tucked away, there is the Orto Botanico di Brera botanical garden that seems like a painting framed in an ancient fairy structure. Last but not least, it’s worth a visit to Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli with its Planetarium, the Civico Museo di Storia Naturale (Natural History Museum).
