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!

Once again, they have outdone themselves!! Remains one of my favs for sure!! I just have to comment that one of the servers (although pleasant) has a non English accent which in our opinion comes off as very standoffish. We just happen to drop by and see if there was room to get in. Apparently, the cook didn't start for... More

My husband and I went to La Brezza Saturday night with six friends. Amazing. The calamari was incredible. The best I've had in a restaurant. All our food was hot and fresh. The orders varied from Seafood pasta to veal saltimbocca. Everyone agreed the food was outstanding. Marco, the owner made his rounds treating every table like old friends. A... More

I had a friend of mine in from out of town and found La Brezza Ristorante purely by chance. We walked in off the street (which I don't recommend as the restaurant was full about 30 mins after we arrived) Needless to say it was great find. Quaint little restaurant in business for 29 years with great food and atmosphere.... More

I made reservations here for my boyfriend and I's anniversary last weekend. The atmosphere was great, lots of people chatting, laughing and enjoying the night. The restaurant looks like it's a converted house, so space is limited but it was quaint and very endearing. It wasn't very romantic because of the proximity to other guests and lack of privacy, but... More

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
