The carbonara your to be so good I don’t know what they served me some cream sauce with way to much bacon. No taste of parmesan cheese at all! And if your going to use regular bacon pick one with some flavour. The chicken parmesan was watery. And our favourite calamari was good but nothing like it use to be. Overall very disappointed

I love Italian food as does my daughter. I had not been to La Brezza for a couple of years and had always had good experiences, so thought I would bring my daughter to celebrate her birthday. We started with the Calamari BREZZA, which was fantastic, very crispy with a very flavorful tomato-based sauce. I had the Fettucine Carbonara, and it was unreal. It was nice and creamy and had generous amounts of pancetta and bacon in it. My daughter had the Cannelloni, delicious meat-stuffed pasta tossed in a tasty tomato sauce
She loved it. I loved the casual feel of the place, almost like you were in your own home, very friendly, welcoming. Do yourself a solid and treat yourself to La Brezza!

Having an Italian heritage I appreciate the genuine Italian flavours and preparation. From the moment we arrived, through the dinner and dessert, we were delighted the quality of the food, wine and service. We’re already looking forward to our next visit.

Very tasty, original with new ideas. The house feel. Get small room for privacy. Or the front Street to.watch the happenings outside while enjoying everything. Support the team there.

La Brezza is a very cozy restaurant. Perfect for a date, but not for large groups. Food was very good! The noise level got a bit high when the restaurant filled up since it’s such a small space and we sat right beside the bar so you could hear everything the servers were talking about and vise versa. Overall I’d recommend this restaurant and dine there again! Fantastic quality Italian food.

Delightful experience. Staff were friendly and efficient.
Food was amazingly good — especially the bruschetta and stuffed mushrooms. Caesar salad disappointing and my husband found his espresso disappointing. Otherwise top notch. Ambience is lovely but is was a cold night and we were a little cold inside. Definite value for money and we will happily return.

The food at La Brezza is outstanding. We had their famous calamari and were not disappointed. We wanted the mushrooms, but they were sold out. The calamari were suggested and we were glad we tried them. The food is served piping hot and is very obviously made to order. All menu items that we tried were very good. The service is good, but it was disappointing that they were out of several things that we tried to order. Our only complaint was with our table. We were seated so that I had a direct view into the dishwashing area of the kitchen. There is a swinging door that can and should be closed at all times. During our meal I asked twice to have the door closed. Both times they closed it, but someone kept propping it open. There was a lot of noise coming from the kitchen and it just isn't appetizing to watch someone cleaning dishes while you are eating. Also, we were sitting in a draft from an old window and the staff going in and out a back door for smoke breaks. Dinner for two with sparkling water, one appetizer, 2 mains, 2 9 oz glasses of wine, one dessert and tip came to $189. I expect better ambiance for this price.

The restaurant was freezing cold and our server wore a plastic mouth covering that was pretty useless. The food was good, but pasta was just warm, not hot.

We love the food at this restaurant however we did not appreciatie that a table of 4 was allowed in that did not wear masks and used the wash room without masks. We therefore will be coming back for a while. I would recommend this place only if the rules would be followed.i know everyone is struggling but Please follow the guidlines.

The food was unbelievable! The service was amazing! Since I was asked about the noise level- it was so intimate and perfect when we first arrived but shortly before leaving a group of 3-4 women arrived and it sounded like a bar.

We will be back for sure! Thank you for everything!!!

Great location in Calgary, it’s a smaller restaurant but perfect size for a date night. The calamari is significant. The house wines are also very tasteful. Main course was delicious, the salmon was to die for. Would recommend to anyone.

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.
