Our Story

Established in 2015 by two University professors who share the passion for food, Brera is the first authentic Italian restaurant in Seoul that focuses on home-style food and atmosphere. Very popular among the expat community in the first beginning, Brera rapidly reached out also the Korean audience becoming the most popular Italian eatery in the city. In two years,from a five staff “between friends” business, it evolved to a more than fifteen people company.

The Concept

Brera delivers simple Italian food, with a quest for excellence, consistency and authenticity of the flavors. The excellence is obtained through the use of fresh and seasonal ingredients; the consistency is guaranteed by high-level trained staff and the application of state-of-art machines forming a real small artisanal factory; the authenticity is conferred by the importation of major Italian products and the supervision exerted by Italian nationals. What makes Brera a gem in Seoul Italian restaurant scene is the offer of fresh homemade pastas including lasagna and ravioli, roman-style brick oven pizzas, in-house wholegrain bread, sirloin steaks and outstanding coffee-based beverages made from Lavazza beans and Denmark milk.

Our Philosophy

Management follows the Aristotelian – Caveat Venditor approach: diners’, employees’and community’s interests are the main focus of the business.
Hence, “bang for your buck” or “the best you can get at that price” policies win against profit-maximization ones.

The food experience takes place in a unique casual atmosphere created by the presence of an extremely diversified customer body in terms of nationality, age and gender; the first impression when walking into the premises is a sensation of feeling welcome in a friend`s apartment for an international party.
