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!

This is one of a kind exceptional. The food was exceptional and the personal service better than any I have ever had. The owner rakes personal pride in her restaurant and makes sure to speak with every guest. The food is nothing less than amazing. Full flavour, quality presentation and arrived hot. Make sure to reserve a table in advance.... More

The three of us just asked the chef to take care of us and shared a bottle of wine. It was a lot of food, the food was great and I will certainly be back.

The Calamari is amazing, scallops very good in pasta but the Ros'e sauce was lacking. Not much flavour in the sauce and when I asked for some fresh grated Parmesan cheese to try and add flavour I was given a funny look and some sad powdered cheese was brought to me. At $25.00 for a pasta dish surely one can... More

The food and service are really quite good, its a popular restaurant and hard to get in around the holidays. Thus the warning to not get seated downstairs because it has none of the charm as the main floor. Make advanced plans.

We decided to visit because of a very high recommendation, and we could not have been more pleased! We were greeted warmly by the proprietor --Filomena-- and our servers and the staff were most kind and courteous. The food was just as described... unforgettable.

The food was fresh and full of solid Italian flavors. Service was excellent in this 28 year old restaurant charmingly located in an old house. Will definitely be back.
