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 NICE SURPRISE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We didn't know where to dine and through tripadvisor we found this great restaurant which is in a nice little house. When we pull up we weren't sure what we were walking into as there is a big bill board sign out front that reminded us of a tacky restaurant, how wrong were we. Once we sat down a very young lady came over and we thought oh my she isn't going to know a thing about the menu, wrong again. I think her name was Jessica and she was a wealth of knowledge on the menu as well attentive to everyone she served. The food was so good we didn't venture to another restaurant on our second evening out, we went back to them and again enjoyed our evening out. Had the same delightful server and this time the one of the owners came out to say hi, the other was cooking. Had the veal masala and the zabaglione dessert, fabulous.

“Lovely food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Too night we have had a lovely evening with friends in La Brezza Ristorante in Calgary. The food and service was excellent. We also liked the atmosphere in the restaurent. We felt that we was invited home to someone as guests. Outside the restaurant do not look like a exclusive place, but that changed when we entrer the door and stepped inside. Of You are visiting Calgary, this is a place You must visit.

“Excellent 2013 Father's Day dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Very good food, service, decor, atmosphere - nothing really flash, but everything done really well, leading to an excellent evening. No rush to get us to leave, so we sat and chatted, drank coffee, chatted with the owner - a nice end to a nice meal. Reasonably priced, although that could rise if you got into the wine.

“Little gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Good italian food in a cozy house in Bridgeland. Marco is a consumate host. Portions are generous and always remember to save some of the foccacia (made in-house) to sop up any sauce left on your plate!

“yummy yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I have gone to La Brezza a few times and have never had a bad experience. The food is always delicious, with a wide variety of different kinds of meals. The service is also quite good. The owner makes you feel very welcomed anytime you dine at La Brezza, always says hello and chats with his guests.
