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!

We picked this place because of the trip advisor. We were lucky because it was early and there were some table left. Otherwise I don't think we will be able to eat. The food is great just a little bit salty. The dessert is good. We choice tiramisu and finished in 2 minutes. The host was very... read more

The place is very cozy. The service is very good. The owner is lovely. The food is ok. I had the caprese salad and it was good, and I had the cannelloni, and the best thing about it was the tomato sauce. It suppose to be stuffed with cheese, mushrooms and beef but I didn't taste or see any mushrooms... More

We expected a wait for the food as the advertizement stated everything fresh from scratch. When served my wife queried is this gluten... More

Have never been to La Brezza so we choose this place for Mother's Day. The place is small so not enough room to move around. Our table was very nice considering it was by the entrance - appreciated the fact there was a curtain between the entrance and our table. We were a party of 7 and we all chose... More

We went to La Brezza Restaurant for a romantic anniversary dinner last September. We were disappointed with the layout of the restaurant and how close the tables were located to each other. We cannot afford fine dining, but thought this place would comparable. The service was okay. The food was okay. We do not plan on returning.

My husband and I like to try new restaurants so we gave this one a go. We made reservations for the Friday, the restaurant is very small so would recommend these for weekends. We read the reviews and the calamari starter came highly recommended so we of course ordered it. It was very good, although not the best I personally... More

We went to La Brezza for dinner and had a wonderful server who was very accommodating. The meal started off great with an order of calamari and bruschetta but was very disappointing once the main courses arrived. We all had different pasta dishes and they were all quite bland. They clearly use very fresh, high quality ingredients but the dishes... More

Had never been to La Brezza so thought we would try it out for our anniversary. Got a horrible table in a corner stuck behind another table that made you feel very claustrophobic. When we asked if we could have a table elsewhere we were told they were all reserved by special request. Service was slow. Took a long time... More

After phoning around for a place to enjoy mother's day, we picked La Brezza because they didn't advertise a set menu like many others. When we arrived, we were presented with their set menu for the evening. Strike one. Our server was very pleasant and we enjoyed a nice bottle of Chianti Classico which was delicious. For the $50 /person... More
