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. We ordered the lunch...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...More

Hello, July 27th, 2016 looking of having approximately 25 guests celebrating a wedding anniversary of 20 years. This will be a surprise party for my awesome husband. If I was to absorb cost of meals for our guests approximately what would be the average cost? Second can you accommodate a large party? Thank you, Kat McLane

Another terrific one to check would be Villa Firenza, the food is amazing and their restaurant is sort of separated so you could book of one entire half. Absolutely one of the best Italian places around. It's right off... More

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!
