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!

I wanted to booked a reservation for a friend's birthday dinner. I had to call twice because no one returned my call. So, I ended up booking online instead. Then finally they called back after receiving my online booking. They called back without much comment and apology. We ordered our meal, a lighter one - shared a calamari and carbonera.... More

I've been here quite a few times: by myself, with clients, my girlfriend, and now my parents from out of town... and we all loved it! I always tell people to get the calamari, but the salads are pretty awesome too! :) They've got some really tasty stuff coming out of that kitchen, and the service is just fantastic! Can't... More

I've rated the service a 4/5. The server herself was friendly and professional; if it were anywhere else, I'm sure we would go back to enjoy her service again. The food and the rest of the experience were dismal. Unfortunately, the service is not enough to raise the rating past "Terrible". I wish it were possible to give a rating... More

I would definitely recommend this little gem of a restaurant to anyone looking for a nice comfortable restaurant in Calgary, nearby downtown. Don't let the look of the place deceive you, it is awesome.

Cheerful and very friendly service from the staff, they pay so much attention and are very helpful with any questions. Italian food at it's finest, they only use the freshest ingredients and serve large portions that leave you unable to make fast movements for the next 2 hours ! You will always feel like it's a home away from home... More

Went for an anniversary supper. It is a charming little restaurant with excellent food. Owner Marco is warm and friendly. Wine in the expensive side but food excellent value. Scallops were delicious!

This is a quaint little restaurant that has amazing food. The owner, Marco, makes his way around the house greeting his guests. We have been coming to this restaurant for over 20 years and still find it to be amazing. The seafood in my pasta dish was incredible.

My friend and I visited La Brezza for an early dinner as a Christmas gift to my friend. She enjoys Italian, so I thought it would be a treat. La Brezza is relatively small restaurant in an old house in Bridgeland. It has been there a long time, so I must assume that it is being patronized and that people... More

We celebrated our 37th anniversary at Le Brezza and we were not disappointed. Marco the proprietor as usual was circulating amongst the patrons and is such a delight to chat with. If you enjoy Italian Cuisine then La Brezza Ristorante is worth a try.

A "home sweet home" feel with an international flavour in the staff themselves while offering great service as quiet in nature or as customized as you wish. The owner comes and delivers his big smile and offers you to 'take a load off' and 'welcome home'. I felt like I was served like never before! The attention to detail from... More
