A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Nel cuore della movida milanese, nella animatissima zona Brera-Garibaldi, questo locale, aperto 365 giorni all’anno a pranzo e cena, rispecchia in pieno lo stile delle osterie-trattorie di nuova generazione: ambiente dai tavoli conviviali o tavolini più appartati, ambiente friendly ma curato, e soprattutto una lista di piatti valida per qualità, preparazione e presentazione. Appena il tempo lo consente, vengono allestiti anche dei tavolini per non più di una ventina di coperti all’esterno. Buona la cantina (circa 200 etichette), curata dalla sommelier Tunde Pecsvari, dove spiccano copiose le etichette di Brunello e Rosso di Montalcino. Vari i vini disponibili al calice… e se avete ordinato una bottiglia ma non l’avete terminata, il servizio cortesemente si presta a tapparvela e farvela portare a casa.

La linea di cucina è quella della tradizione italiana, interpretata con uno stile contemporaneo. Il che significa porzioni corrette, piatti curati negli abbinamenti e nei contrasti di consistenze e sapori. Molti sono i piatti tipici milanesi – e quindi come vuole la ricetta canonica, ricchi di condimento – e merita una particolare segnalazione la pluripremiata Cotoletta di vitello (con l’osso) alla milanese, cotta nel burro chiarificato, croccante fuori e morbida internamente, servita con salsa tartara e patate novelle al forno. Fra i primi, oltre al Risotto alla milanese, le Pappardelle fresche al ragù di cinghiale o le Linguine del Pastificio Mancini alle vongole e pesto di cime di rapa. Fra i secondi, Polpo su vellutata di ceci e ristretto di ‘nduja o Maialino da latte, terrina di patate e jus alle mele o Petto d’anatra arrosto in crosta di pan brioche. Sapori genuini con qualche tocco creativo che non guasta. Dal lunedì al venerdì a pranzo è in vigore anche una carta ristretta, dedicata al business lunch, con la possibilità di scegliere alcuni piatti in versione “regular” o “super”.

    Lovely restaurant almost in the very heart of the magic district of Brera. Nice and quite romantic ambiance is accompanied by very good Italian food with some authentic touch. Menu is short focused on a few rather traditional dishes that are executed in individual and exquisite manner. La cotoletta alla milanese is really the best I’ve ever tried in Milan.

    Very nice staff and good food. The pasta dishes were good but not outstanding. The Cotoletta alla Milanese on the other hand is amazing!

    We had an amazing evening at Osteria Brunello. It was a dinner that we will remember due to the wonderful food. The cotoletta di vitello alla Milanese is sublime and we concluded with the tiramisu is even more delectable! Wish we could return!

    Excellent food. Terrific taste. I’m a vegetarian and could not try the veL cutlet so I had ravioli and a side of vegetables that was the same cost as the veal cutlet. While my friend had a full meal with his cutlet, my portions were minuscule and I left the restaurant hungry. I would not recommend this restaurant for anything other than the cutlet. Otherwise, you will pay a steep price for very little.

    This Osteria Brunello lives up to it's excellent reputation. Service was first rate. Staff is helpful and attentive. The food was superb. I am a fan of Cotoletta alla Milanese and this was absolutely the best cotoletto I have tasted in Italy and the U.S. Go, you will not be disappointed.

    We arrived on time for our reservations. We were shown to our seats and never saw a waiter no menus no water no wine. The owner sat behind the cash register while one waiter took care of all the tables inside and out. After 20 minutes the owner yelled at the waiter to bring water outside. At that time we got up and left the restaurant no o e stopped us or asked us if there was a problem. There are too many good restaurants in Milan to be treated so poorly at one. If you are going to be open staff your restaurant and accommodate the customers.

    This restaurant serves an excellent Milanese veal cotoletta, which is one of the best I have had. An extensive wine list and great service make this place worth a trip. I highly recommend it!
