My friend and I went for dinner and loved it! We got the carbonara and some kind of spicy spaghetti. Both were amazing! The service was excellent. It is in a funky house, but don't let that scare you because it is seriously so good!

I never had the opportunity to meet the original owner who passed away a few years ago, but I know he would be proud of how the place continues to serve good food and provide good service. I would definitely recommend it!

This was our first visit to la Brezza and will be our last. The service was not great. I had to ask for lemon for my ice water 3 times and twice for balsamic vinegar and olive oil for my bread.

I had business guests in from the US. One of them is Italian and considers himself to be an aficionado when it comes to Italian food. We were surprised that the restaurant was not more fully booked, but our waiter explained that it had been very busy lately, just not so much on this dreary April evening. Our server Michael...

Service was good. The waiter was friendly and helpful. We were a small group, there for a catch up visit. We weren't rushed at all. The real star of the evening was the food. We had the cannelloni and the carbonara, both highly recommended by our waiter. We were all very well satisfied with our dining experience. The portions were... More

Bridgeland is a hip and trendy place but anchoring this old neighborhood is a gem that has been there for years. We went for lunch. The waiter (Mark) was charming. He recommended the Calamari and the Salmon special. Wow, it was great. This place never lost its charm - it just keeps getting better as everything around it gets hipper!

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!
