The eggplant parmesan was excellent. We don't usually get this level of texture/taste with the eggplants. The waiter recommended the calamari, and this was spot on. Different - not the heavily battered mix that you usually get, but delicately battered rings with a light sort...More

We had been away from Calgary for a while and returned with a yearning for a good veal piccata. A look at other Italian restaurant menus showed that it had apparently gone out of style. However La Brezza delivered in spades. Calamari starter was also...More

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!

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!
