Interesting restaurant in the local Menabrea brewery. Similar to german beer gardens, this place offers a huge variety of down-to-earth dishes. Local, italian, german and international cuisine. Following a friend's suggestion we went for meat and burgers as main course, with some starters. Everything was really good, starting from the ingredients. And of course paired with their beers, excellent. Friendly... More

Menabrea is nice restaurant in German style. The beer here is excellent, food just average. Located in walking distance from Biella centre. Service is perfect. It is usually full of people, make reservation in ahead.

Everytime I visit Biella, I go to have a dinner at Menabrea with my friends. It has a nice atmosphere, offer good pizza and meat accompanied by a delicious local beer made in Biella. My favourite is pizza Diavola! And, remember to book in advance!

They serve quite good pizza, but remember this is a brewery. I recommend "birra cruda" (actually unfiltered beer made in the joint) at 1 liter !!! Other noticeable dishes: misto gliglia (mixed grill), tiramisu alla birra (tiramisu with fingers dipped in beer instead of coffee). Good place to hang out with friends

For those who are beer lovers this is a place to be. Situated next to the production plants this is a nice unconventional restaurant for a nice dinner with friends. Yes because it is closed on lunchtime. The cuisine is genuine ranging from grilled meat, pasta and pizza. It gets very lively from time to time and because of its... More

Our hotel made our reservations. The restaurant was packed with every age group and multi generational families. Pizza seemed to be the #1 choice,but we had read that the Biela area is well known for risotto and cheese. My husband ordered the local beer and was very happy with it. We had a great insalata mista, chewy bread and olive... More

Is not a secret that Memabrea is a great beer but this place is much more than that. The food is simply great with an excellent quality of products and different dishes to choose from. The special dishes cooked with beer are amazing. The price is a great deal according to the quality of the food!

This place has a great risotto, a great meat selection. Their fries are also crispy and yummy. Their famous for their beer. But the pizzas and formaggio there are 2nd to none!

nice spot for tasting one of the home made and brewed original piemontese beer. just have a sit in one of those old fashioned wooden table and relax, eating some steak or potatoes, fried eggs or just salade...whatever you choose, don't miss the original beer. staff is friendly and prices very affordable just enter and drink
