We stopped in for a quick sandwich and cappuccino as a shopping break in this area. Service was fast and excellent. The warm ham and fontina sandwich was excellent. The operative words are fast...you are in and out at your own pace and... delicious food.

We only had drinks at this place. A nice spot, in between the expensive shops. - hidden place with only a few outside tables. Not cheap.

We have a lunch there 3 times per year, during 6 years, and never were disapointed. Good luck to the owners!

Very cheap food. No good quality food. I will never ever go back there! Not at all recommend able. Not romantic as the name. Very poor and old.

Stopped in here by chance for lunch and was offered a wide choice of lunch specials by friendly staff. We then opted to look at the menu and had pizza. I know, not very imaginative but we'd had lot's of other things over the weekend....More

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
