Service was excellent, food was amazing! We sat in the alcove which seats 6-8 people and it was the perfect spot for our birthday dinner. Highly recommend La Brezza.

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.

Excellent sauce on the pasta with prawns! Mushroom appi was very tasty. Plain green salad was dressed well but the ends of the romaine were brown. Overall excellent meal and service!

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.

Food was good cause it always is here. Just felt really rushed to get out. When I go fine dining please don’t rush me. We had our mains within 40 minutes of getting there. Had I known when we ordered our mains that they would be out within 15 minutes I would have delayed things. Our server should have been a little more in tune. As well, we were celebrating our daughters 21st birthday and we told our guy it was a special night and all and absolutely nothing. Could care less. Lots of restaurant options in Calgary and not sure I’ll come back anytime soon.

Food was over priced for the calamari and the Caesar salad. The stuffed chicken that was the special that night was just ok as well. The server was quite unpleasant and rude. Almost asked if he was having a bad day or if he just had a bad attitude overall. Would rather go to Mercato or even Cibo for better quality food and better service.
