The calamari Brezza appetizer was worth going for if that was all that we had. The bruschetta was fair - could use more garlic for our taste. The Linguini Mediterranean pasta was wonderful and the sauce was tasty and the prawns seemed a bit tough and maybe overcooked a bit; the Penne con Salsiccie was rated very good. The service was attentive and non-intrusive. Overall, very good although a bit mixed in terms of our enjoyment of the food.

The service, ambience, food and overall experience were superb!! We were going to go to another restaurant but they were full and very rude about not being able to fit anyone else in. We had been to La Brezza years ago when Marco was still alive and liked it. We were totally impressed to meet Filomena and see how wonderful she and her staff were!! We won’t ever go back to the other place (Buon Giorno). Their new owner doesn’t understand service!!

There was a serious shortage of staff when we arrived One server was on duty she was looking after tables inside as well as looking after the patio guests and was also the bar tender. About 45 minutes a second server arrived. This was not typical of this establishment. The food was great as usual

wonderful food with no pressure to leave as we enjoyed our evening. One of our guests lactose so received recommended dishes they could alternate if any where chosen. The staff were friendly and not intrusive which was appreciated since we were a birthday group. Would recommend to anyone

Our overall experience was outstanding. Excellent food with lovely recommendations made by the servers when we sought some advice. The calamari is a must try, not the usual pub fare style....yummy!

Venue is nice and quaint. The service is very good but the food isn't. Calamari is rubbery, penne with sausage was a disappointment. Its pasta from a box with crushed tomatoes some onions and peppers - not very tasty. The sausage is low quality and wasn't very good - not very inspiring. So if they improve their cooking ill be back.

We started with the Calamari which is an absolute must. It is sautéed; not breaded and deep fried, absolutely delicious.

For our mains we had Lamb and Chicken dishes both served with pasta and veggies.

Coupled with a nice Barolo it was all fabulous. Can’t go wrong.

Waiter was attentive, friendly, and genuine. He made us smile and took good care of us. The fettuccine carbonara was the best I’ve ever tasted. Bruschetta was very good, but would have preferred baguette over the focaccia. The lasagne and cannelloni was good, but I like a creamy bechamel in my lasagne and was disappointed it wasn’t served with anything (garlic bread, French bread, baguette) for $24! One little piece of lasagne was not worth $24 in my opinion. I will go back to have the fettuccine though.

Been coming for years - still my favorite little Italian restaurant. I've lately had to change my diet to totally plant-based, and there are good and very flavorful options at La Brezza. I highly recommend this gem.

Nice old converted house made for a cozy, quiet ambiance perfect for conversation. The service was great as well. In regards to the food, the lamb and veal mains were both excellent, really good. I was disappointed by both appetizers - the cáprese salad advertised fior di latte, but was cheap bocinccini at best, and over salted. I would also expect a larger (and more Italian) wine list. Overall great ambiance, but perhaps a bit overpriced

Excellent place for authentic Italian food. We had mussels to start. it was the best tomato sauce we've ever had. Wife had the Pescatore, prawns were huge and perfectly cooked. The spaghetti it comes with was light, buttery and delicious. I had the Carbonara, the sauce was light and the pasta was perfectly cooked. The pancetta and cheese gave the dish a nice salty and savory kick to it.

The service and ambience was top notch. They give great service and are excellent with recommendations and pairings for wine. The ambience was dimly lit and private with very low noise level. The place was busy but not crowded or loud. It was warm and inviting.

Lastly, the dessert and prices were spot on. The Tiramisu was fluffy, airy and potion size was great for sharing. My only criticism would be to add more coffee liqueur to the dessert. And the prices for each dish is spot on. The taste and potion size was worth every penny without being too expensive. We will definitely be back.

This was our first visit to La Brezza and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was outstanding and the service was excellent. Was a tad higher priced but worth the extra~ Sitting at the front was a cool when the door opened and was a little tight around the tables. Will definitely go back and also book a group for special occasions. Thank you La Brezza!

LaBrezza is one of the best Italian restaurants I know of.

A family business who cares and tends for each person as if they were visiting their home.
