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!

a small place with great hospitality and very welcoming owner. the food was superb - the calamari was very special and the same is the pasta carbonara and the fish. so if you are in Calgary it is definitely worth a visit as high priority.

Went to La Brezza this week and had a great lunch. The restaurant was very clean and the staff was all very friendly. The food came out hot, with very little waiting time and everything tasted delicious. I have already recommended this place to friends and I will be returning for dinner soon. The calamari was by far the best... More

My experience was like being comfy at my own home. A small little ristorante with a big heart. I think whats important for a resurant is to feel comfortable right from the moment you walk in as I did at La Brezza. The food was very fresh and perfectly cooked. I really want to try everything on the menu.

We found this restaurant about 5 years ago and we've been coming back ever since. We love coming here for special occasions because of the romantic ambiance of the restaurant. We've been here for birthdays, anniversaries, and Valentine's and it is amazing everytime! It's such a cute little restaurant that looks like a house from the outside, definitely Calgary's hidden...
