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!

Enjoyed our supper at La Brezza. Atmosphere was cozy and delightful. My wife and I had the calamari for appetizer and veal dishes as the main course. Both were delicious. We both don't normally like red sauce but Le Brezza may have converted us! Service was exceptional. They took the time answer any questions. Marco stopped by our table to... More

The food was delicious and fresh with enough veggie options to share a few different items. The service at the beginning of the meal was excellent, but after our food arrived we were left on our own. I left satisfied with the food, but wishing someone had come back to refill my wine. I probably would have stayed for dessert... More

Just an excellent experience all around. We were greeted by Marco, the owner, who was making the rounds welcoming all his guests. Really nice and interesting guy. The meal was outstanding, I can't remember ever having better veal than I had at La Brezza. A very warm, unhurried atmosphere in the restaurant, which was formerly Marco's home. The Bruschetta and...

We were visiting Calgary and read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor. We are so glad we did. It was a fabulous, delicious meal. Each one of us loved everything. Everything was so fresh and the choices were wonderful. I got the scallops and shrimp (prawns) and it was amazing. My husband also loved his lasagna. I forget what my son... More

Birthday party tonight and my mother-in-law (old world woman who's certainly no slouch in the kitchen herself) RAVED about the sauce on her Pollo Alla Brezza. Daughter #4 "Best Alfredo sauce EVER!" Father-in-law, "I had about 23 prawns" and he loved his spaghetti dinner. I could go through everyone but you get my drift. Son #1 "The Fettuccine alls Carbonara... More

Once again, fabulous dinner! Pasta and salads for all four of us with the very nice and affordable house red. Each dish superb, served in a cozy unhurried atmosphere. In short, great food, ambiance and service. Dining doesn't get any better in Calgary!

The owner was so friendly to us. He came over and talked to my boyfriend and I, and we both agreed that this place was the best meal we ever had. Everything was amazing the food the service and the experience. We will definitely come back. This our little slice of heaven.

Wanted to take a second date somewhere special and Labrezza fit the bill! I highly recommend the calamari, I was not a fan of calamari before but I have been converted! Our mains were good size, tasty portions. The house wines were good too.
