very good food, it did take a little while for the waiter to come around to grab dirty plates or check on us but it was valentines so it was understandable.

The cannelloni was very good. We went on a quieter night and the service was excellent.

It was a dinner out for my moms 75th birthday. They treated her like royalty. Made sure we were looked after and gave us a complimentary appetizer. The salmon was “the best I ever had” says my mom. She would like to go back again. I would recommend La Brezza for anyone wanting an intimate dinner. The noise level was the only issue but not the fault of the restaurant. Just how it’s set up due the openness of the building.

We made reservations here because it was listed as one of the most romantic restaurants in Calgary, we could not disagree more. It is in an old house that has tired pint colours, paint missing from the window frames where the chairs have rubbed against it for years. We were seated by the door and it was extremely drafty and cold for the entire dinner, especially when people came in or out. Two of the ceiling lights were burned out in our alcove and it was quite dark.

The waiter was friendly but someone else took out orders for mains and our waiter had to confirm it later on. The portions were small and overpriced. The veal parmigiana was mushy and there was barely any pasta (probably about half a cup).

Overall it seemed very dated and tired looking. The food was overpriced. The wine list was very limited and overpriced as well. If you’re looking for a romantic dinner in Calgary in this price range, try The Wednesday Room, The Keg on 4th Ave, Modern Steak or Klein Harris. They are all far more romantic and the food is far better.

Sorry for the bad review. We have never left one before but this was such a disappointment.

Food was below average. Every pasta dish coming out of the kitchen looked the same. Service was below average. Not great value. Will not return.

We had an incredible dinner last weekend and La Brezza!!! You feel like you are one of the family dining at this restaurant! Very cozy, perfect ambiance. All the servers are warm and inviting. The owner always ensures you have a great experience. The food is good, quality Italian that you can never go wrong with. Thank you La Brezza for such a wonderful night!

Michael, our host, was excellent and very attentive. The food was actually cooked by Mama Angela herself that day so we were super lucky. She's 75 and doesn't look a day over 50 and her cooking was sublime. We ordered the chicken and pasta with prawns, shrimp and rosé sauce and were not disappointed. We were even treated to a complimentary bruschetta. The restaurant felt like a home and the other diners actually felt like friends. Such a wonderful atmosphere to match the fabulous cuisine. We hope to go back here, both before we had back to Toronto, and definitely on our return to Calgary!

The food was ok. We had calamari for an appetizer , for $19.00 there should have been a few more pieces but the taste was fine. Tiramisu was good but the presentation was poor. For a $10 dessert I expected more instead of just a small square chunk and a fork outline on the plate. Salmon was done nicely.
Overall I always wanted to try this restaurant but for the price I won’t bother going again.
The decor inside definitely needs some updating looks a little old.

The restaurant itself is a bit dated, but the super friendly service and the tasty home-y food make it a hidden gem in my opinion. The dinner special (salmon and prawns with creamy sauce and a side of pasta and veggies was EXCELLENT) and so was my husband's cannelloni, would definitely come back!
