Description: La Brezza, meaning ocean breeze, is considered to be one of Calgary's finest Italian restaurants. Opened in 1987 and still in its original location - once the owners house, La Brezza continues to offer an elegantly simple Italian cuisine, emphasizing traditional home-cooked goodness. You can enjoy a satisfying lunch and dinner menu with daily specials and you can even indulge on Sundays as we are one of the few local restaurants open 7 days a week. We pride ourselves in offering great food, great service, and a warm, relaxed atmosphere. See you soon!

Father-in-law, "I had about 23 prawns" and he loved his spaghetti dinner. I could go through everyone but you get my drift. Son #1 "The Fettuccine alls Carbonara... More

Once again, fabulous dinner! Pasta and salads for all four of us with the very nice and affordable house red. Each dish superb, served in a cozy unhurried atmosphere. In short, great food, ambiance and service. Dining doesn't get any better in Calgary!

The owner was so friendly to us. He came over and talked to my boyfriend and I, and we both agreed that this place was the best meal we ever had. Everything was amazing the food the service and the experience. We will definitely come back. This our little slice of heaven.

Wanted to take a second date somewhere special and Labrezza fit the bill! I highly recommend the calamari, I was not a fan of calamari before but I have been converted! Our mains were good size, tasty portions. The house wines were good too.

This was the first time my husband and I tried LaBrezza. A charming place, romantic atmosphere and impeccable hospitality. Marco is a gem and makes you feel like a member of the family. The food was incredibly fresh and delicious. We'll definitely be back, very soon!

Let me start by saying I am a very picky restaurant eater. Typically, even at my favourite restaurants, there are a few things I really don't like. During my visit to La Brezza, however, there was not a single thing I turned up my nose at. I was there with my somewhat large family, celebrating my younger sister going off... More

The owner Marco Abdi sat with us and every other table in the restaurant to make our experience that much better. If you are looking for an amazing dinner, amazing atmosphere... More
