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!

3 of our meals with excellent but my sons fettuccini Carbonara pasta tasted good but had at least 3/4 cup of olive oil in the bottom. Waiter never came back to check on us until at least 5 min after we had all finished eating when he came to fill our long empty water glasses. And it was not busy... More

Not great, but not bad either. Despite the fact that I'm not Italian, I eat pasta like I live in Italy, so I can assure you that I know good pasta when I eat it. So when I received my order, I was not overly impressed. I had the cannelonni and my friend had the lasagna. Both were just okay.... More

Appetizers were great...had the calamari and the eggplant parmigiana. I ordered salmon and it was overcooked. They didn't have any left, offered me another type of fish and took it off the bill so your can't ask for more than that. Everyone else enjoyed their meals. My only complaint is that I made a reservation a week in advance and... More

Ate here for a friends birthday. The Italian food was wonderful. It was not too snooty and the stay was comfortable. The prices were reasonable for medium to high end restaurants.

I've been trying to switch it up as of late and (cutting back on the pasta) I've started to try out their salads (calamari counts as salad to me). I'm sorry, I can't go to this place without ordering the calamari!! I've written about it multiple times but I can't stop, it's that damn good! Now.. after the calamari, I... More
