It's too loud, I hate having to shout at the person I'm having dinner with. The Caesar salad had great favour but full of brown bits of romaine. At the price they charge it should be FRESH. The daily fresh bread couldn't possibly been made...More

I hadn't been at La Brezza for a decade or more (way cross city) but the opportunity came up for a Bridgeland area lunch so, recalling years earlier, I booked La Brezza. It was great and so another opportunity arose for an inter-city lunch and...More

La Brezza is a family run restaurant that hits on all the key aspects of a great dinner out. Mamma makes the most fantastic Italian dishes. The new menu is smaller and more focused but no less tasty. The wine list is diverse and very...More

Very impressed with this place. The service was warm and friendly, and we took advantage of their half-price wine night. The food itself was terrific, as we ordered three pasta dishes, all of them home runs. The carbonara and lasagna were especially good! The owner...More

Great food and amazing staff! It's a pricey place, but it's worth it for a special occasion. It was a bit noisy when we arrived, but after some tables left it became quite pleasant. The calamari is the best we've ever had. Definitely a must...More

You should definitely call the restaurant to see if they can accomodate you as they are not a large space. A great alternative would be "Il Chianti" on 20th ave and Edmonton Trail, NE.

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!
