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!

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

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

La Brezza's specializes in simple and delicious Italian food served in a warm and inviting atmosphere. We booked here for a family and friends function and were very happy with the menu and the chef's special for the evening. Wine menu could have been more extensive. Will definitely go again.

You really get the feeling that you're sitting down to dinner at a friend's house here. The intimate atmosphere and charming staff are wonderful. Try the bruschetta and the soup of the day, you won't be disappointed!

We had our Christmas party here and it was fantastic. The food was comparable to that which I had in Italy. The staff were attentive. An overall wonderful little place. We will be back.

We had a party of 6 go to this restaurant on a Friday night. Overall the experience was awesome - we started out with some calamari which was delicious! They then brought us some bread but brought a vinegar and oil dip for the bread that was in a deep bowl - you had to go through a lot of... More

Nice, quaint ambience. Live music was a nice touch. The pasta was done perfectly. Huge portions. Very tasty. Parking was a bit of a nightmare, but it was a very busy evening.
