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!

Spaghetti or any pasta carbonara are awesome. Friendly people. There is a little Italian restaurant just west of there on the same side of the street a block down that is equally great. The owners grow their own vegetables. It may be called la trattoria d'italia. A bit expensive but good food at both places. I like adventures so if... More

I'm Italian and usually don't go to Italian restaurants but this had the best cannelloni I've ever had. Everything is fresh and well cooked. Prices are very reasonable and you will leave feeling full. The owner often comes and checks in on each of the tables- very genuine and sincere, hoping that you enjoyed your meal. Go early for parking... More

I am Italian both in states community and having a home in Italy and citizenship..I was excited to checkout the best rated restaurant in Calgary for both Italian and overall..it was just ok but to be #1 overall is not says much for Calgary.

We have standing reservations for our anniversary and birthdays....and any other special event we can think of. The owner/chef takes a special pride in everything that goes out of his kitchen; ask him about his food, he may pull up a seat and join you for dinner! Very friendly atmosphere. The Calamari appetizer they serve has ruined me for calamari... More

This is not really a big place to eat or site of renown but they do have good and able chefs that make pasta not too sloppy or too spicy or like a dried out noodle. Had the pasta and loved the tomatoes and yes bell peppers with of course as I am a diabetic Diet coke. Served within 10... More

I went here with my mom, I didnt know it was such a tiny little house. The food from what I remember was okay, but the most awkward part of it was the owner... he came to our table over 10 times within our meal, he was being very friendly but it almost felt like he was hitting on us...... More

Even though I requested very little if any garlic on my meal, all I could taste a few hours later was the garlic that pouring out of my pores.
