We went to the restaurant for a birthday celebration. It is in a redone house and casual with lots of room between tables. Walked in the door and were greeted by THE friendliest staff I’ve seen in ages! The specials came highly recommended - chicken...More

Momma mia Italian cuisine that you will travel out of your way too. Awesome awesome and so so tasty. When you visit for any occasion when your party leaves no-one is going to say I am hungry, and they will thank you for inviting them.

The food and service at La Brezza is amazing. We go often and it is always fantastic. Filomena and her staff do a wonderful job to make everyone’s dinner experience awesome. Highly recommend L.A. Brezza!

This was a good place to take my visiting American business associates. Tow ordered the Chicken Parm. One had the Veal marsala. My partner and I each ordered the canelloni. All delicious. And Brad our server did a fantastic job. Thanks!

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!
