We had an amazing girls night at LaBrezza last night. The staff at LaBrezza go out of their way to ensure that all social distancing rules are followed and that guests are well taken care of. The new look is wonderful and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Filomena and staff you continue to go above and beyond to make sure your patrons are safe and comfortable. 💞

The food and service was amazing! Total respect for covid 19 protocol, tables were socially distant and the entire experience is 5 STAR! If you are a fan of great Italian food, this is a MUST experience. I highly recommend the lasagna and the orange “creamsicle” crepes for desert. Thank you so much La Brezza!!

None of the kitchen were wearing masks. Our waiter had the plastic cover but you could see it foggy with bits of his spit on it. You can tell based on the gap between his nose and mask, you wouldn’t want him talking over you. The tables were definitely not spaced out enough. It was like business as usual. I wasn’t comfortable with dining but didn’t want to make a big deal as it was my husbands birthday. I wouldn’t go back again.

We booked a table for six, everyone's food was great from appetizers, main dishes to desserts. The only (small) bit was that they were out of Clamato and two people at our table wanted to order Caesars. We found it strange that it wasn't stocked or someone didn't run to restock.
All in all it was a great evening.

Great food as always, all dishes of exceptional quality. Kitchen was good enough to whip up a variation of a menu item for my vegetarian spouse. Magnificent beef tenderloin special that I won’t soon forget. Tiramisu was heavenly.

Our experience at LaBrezza was amazing. Food was fantastic and the service exceptional. During these uncertain times it is comforting to know that a restaurant like LaBrezza go above and beyond to provide their customers with amazing food and atmosphere while maintaining a safe environment for all. We will definitely go back and highly recommend the calamari and cannelloni!

Great selection of foods considering we had a nut allergy & also needed gluten free options for celiac person.
Appetizers great to share.
Main course was filling and very flavourful.
Also indulged in desserts.
Excellent setting for family birthday celebration with grown children (18-25). Setting was great for our family of 6. We were there for over 2 hours enjoying great food, wine, cocktails and conversation.
Not sure it would be great for young children as it is more of a casual evening.

Service was less than desirable. We were greeted at the door to an extremely rude waitress who proceeded to forget about us for 30 plus minutes of the night. Excellent food but strange ambiance.

Our server was great! So personable and genuine. I ate the Pollo with Mushroom and Thyme cream sauce, penne pasta and red sauce with vegetables. It was delicious, I basically liked my plate clean.
Will go back for sure!

One negative- the music reminded me of being stuck in an elevator. That could use some improvement.

My only complaint would be the price of the soda water... not knowing it was $7/bottle we ordered 2 without thinking. We drink it all the time for about 5 bucks less. Just a little bit of a shock on the bill at the end. But other than that, it was perfect! Will definitely be back!!

We have loved la brezza in the past but this was disappointing. The bartender wore her mask on her chin while preparing drinks and walking through the restaurant, only putting it on when she directly approached a table. The quality of the food had declined and was not what we experienced previously.

Social distancing was excellent, food and service were outstanding. We only wish it was air conditioned, was extremely hot. Our understanding is that their current menu is reduced from normal due to Covid, we had no problem finding something wonderful. Calamari was outstanding, one of their signature dishes I’m sure. The vanilla ice cream in a crepe with orange sauce was the best dessert I have ever had. Will absolutely be back.

This was the first time we had been to this restaurant. When we first walked in I was unsure as the restaurant is small, old and had a strange smell; not as romantic as what we thinking for our anniversary.
We were pleasantly surprised with the amazing food and fantastic service.
We will definitely be back.

So happy to see this restaurant has survived the Calgary downturn and the Covid restrictions.
Last night we came for one of our ladies nights out with a small group.
Loved the ambience of the new renovations, and I noted that the tables are well spaced and when reserving for the evening the owner; Filomena; was very careful to explain the rules on how many patrons per table were allowed so she could reserve enough tables for the group.
I also noted she has the sanitizer by the door when you enter, the signs on the door stating you cannot enter without a mask on.
Once seated we were allowed to remove our masks while at our table. The staff were wearing their masks and the service was very prompt and friendly as always.
It is like visiting family when you come here.
One of the reasons I love this restaurant so much is the ambience and friendly vibes so much nicer than the big places with all the noise and clatter. I always feel like I am special when I visit and of course the food, if you love home cooked Italian this is the place. I have tried many things on the menu and always enjoyed my food.
Of course I always have a plate of La Brezza's special calamari, yum!
Thanks again Filomena for making our night special; making us feel safe from the darn COVID and serving us once again a delicious meal and great wine:)
Highly recommend supporting one of our long time family owned restaurants, so if you are looking to support local please make a reservation or order some take out and keep this little gem in Bridgeland open!
