Brera Osteria is hands down the best Italian restaurant in Vegas located at The Venetian Hotel.
My wife and I visited Las Vegas on Valentines weekend for the Magic Tradeshow. We come to Vegas every year for this event and is a tradition since we opened our clothing store 10 years ago. This year we stayed at the Venetian Hotel and wanted to grab a light dinner as our flight was the same evening. We walked The Grand Canal Shops and saw several restaurants but they were all booked as it was Valentines eve. We approached Brera Osteria Italian Restaurant and spoke to the Manager Paulo Duran. We asked him to squeeze us in as we had to catch a flight and were hoping to have a romantic dinner. He worked his magic and sat us down without to much wait. The restaurant was packed so we were grateful for the accommodation.
We ordered the Pesto Gnocchi Pasta and Coppia Pizza with no meat. Included in this post are pictures of the meal and restaurant. I have to say I have traveled to Italy many times and have not had a pizza anywhere in the US that even compared until now. The food at Brera Osteria is one to one with Italy’s best. We were truly impressed by the flavors and textures. The dough and cheeses are all made in-house. The pizza was the perfect thin crust with just the right amount of sauce. The arugula on top was the perfect touch. I have had great Gnocchi before but pesto flavored was a first for me. Perfectly cooked with soft creamy cheese in the middle that made every bite taste smooth and delicious. We shared both dishes and left just enough room for desert. Tiramisu was splendid with just the right amount of sweetness and fluffed to perfection.
Overall it was a great experience and romantic ambiance we were seeking. You feel like your in Italy at a romantic venue in St. Mark’s Square as people pass by in The Grand Canal Shoppes. Only when I got home and did this review did I find out its by Chef Angelo Auriana who received a Michelin Guide 2019 Bib Gourmand Award. Wow what an amazing achievement. The Chef’s famous slogan below. My wife and I will be back to dine again later this year at the next Magic Trade Show.
“Simple flavors are the most difficult to achieve”
