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 has been a fabulous restaurant for years. It has been our family celebration go to place since forever. Owner Marco died this week, and the family has not decided what to do with the restaurant. So call first before going and being disappointed. Marco made this restaurant with his "million dollar" smile that was always present, his constant quest... More

Over the years I have attended this restaurant and have never been disappointed. It was sad to hear that the original owner passed away yesterday. His enthusiasm for great good and fabulous service will always be remembered.

I visited La Brezza with friends in February of 2015. I have been to this restaurant several times over the years. Previous visits have always been outstanding. I was a bit disappointed this time with the service provided. It all started with having to wait for close to 15 minutes at the front door to be seated at a table.... More

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
