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!

The atmosphere, the tasty menu and the affable owner. Always A1. I ate light was a great salad, and I'm not a salad guy! What a great combination of vegetable flavors. Add the cheese plate and it was Bon Apetit!

Had a great lunch here with some business partners of mine. I had the calamari, as usual, and my partners had the cannelloni. They have some great food here, and it's pretty fairly priced too, especially for the flavour! My entree was the carbonara and I couldn't recommend it higher! Great experience all around! Will be coming back again and again!

A small, intimate restaurant in the North East of Calgary, with a very large choice of Italian dishes including pastas, meat and fish, all made from fresh ingredients and all at a very reasonable price. With friendly and knowledgable staff, who know everything about every dish, but the most remarkable of it all … is the taste. Truly mouthwatering. You just want to keep on eating. I can't remember when Italian food tasted so good, so this must be the best I've had.

The food, service and ambience was wonderful. Since I moved away I had not been to La Brezza in years and I forgot how charismatic the owner Marco was. Marco always makes you feel like family when you dine at his restaurant!

Let's see the food was in the $20 range and the wine in the $100/bottle range, and you can go to the Old Spaghetti Factory and get better and fresher pasta. There was nothing special about the food, it was lukewarm and came out in 10 minutes, so could not have been prepared fresh. The service was young and surly and one waitress was sitting at a table on her iPhone. The ambience was a square room with store bought photos of Italy and there was no music or anything else that would make the place feel warmer. There was no bread served with dinner, so we order bruschetta, which came with rock hard bread that had not resemblance to italian bread. I would not recommend this place. It hard to understand why they got any good reviews. I also want to remind folks not italian food, so folks that go here for the calamari are perhaps not looking for italian food.
