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

Great little restaurant in the heart of Bridgeland .The food is scrumptious and the service is top notch. Prices are comparable to other Italian restaurants. The menu is varied and has a little something for every one. The pasta dishes are especially good.

My wife and I were filled with expectation. We'd always wanted to go to the quaint little house in Bridgeland, home to La Brezza Ristorante, and her birthday finally gave us the opportunity. But our first visit there may well be our last. La Brezza...More

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

We took my sister here for dinner, as she enjoys Italian food. We started with the calamari, which is lightly dusted ( not breaded) and very tasty. My wife had a chicken dish with prawns in a Rose sauce. My sister had the lemon veal....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!
