SquareMeal Review of Brera Riverside

Having originally opened in the early nineties, Brera Riverside is a long-established stalwart of Canary Wharf, but it underwent a full rebrand and redesign in 2018. Operating as an all-day cafe, the Wharf’s business types are able to sample classic Italian dishes at breakfast (think panettones and pastries), lunch and dinner. The evening menu is now focussed on handmade pastas and is overseen by executive chef Andra Cirino (formerly of Locanda Locatelli and Zafferano).

The calm ambience of Brera Riverside, enhanced by low-level lighting and candles, makes it an attractive spot for couples, while the entrance to the restaurant showcases a temptingly fresh selection of charcuterie on a marble-topped surface.

The menu changes regularly, but on our visit, we enjoyed tagliolini which was flecked with heaps of rich truffle shavings that melted into the hot pasta and butter, whilst the Parmigiana di miele was an expertly handcrafted dish: warm and soft aubergine, paired with a gooey buffalo mozzarella which blended well with the dollop of tomato sauce served to its side.

Staff are happy to make pairing recommendations from their reasonably priced selection of by-the-glass Italian wines (including Pinot Grigio and a classic Chianti), while traditional cocktails such as Aperol Spritz and Negronis are a good shout too.
