Marco's Vision

#outstanding experiences

Marco Abdi, the founder of LaBrezza Ristorante, started the restaurant with a simple yet profound vision: to share his love for authentic Italian cuisine with the people of Calgary. He wanted every customer to feel like they were part of his family, enjoying home-cooked meals prepared with love and care. Marco's dedication to quality and his warm, welcoming nature made LaBrezza a long-time favorite in Calgary. His famous quote, "For me, every day is Christmas," reflects his philosophy of spreading joy and happiness through his food and hospitality​.

Nonna Angela’s Legacy

#tradition and authenticity

Mamma Angela, the mother-in-law of LaBrezza's founder Marco Abdi, has been the culinary heart of LaBrezza Ristorante since it opened its doors in 1987. Her traditional Italian recipes and meticulous training of the kitchen staff have ensured that every dish reflects the authenticity and love of home-cooked Italian meals. Nonna Angela’s dedication to quality and family values played a significant role in making LaBrezza one of Calgary’s most cherished Italian restaurants​.

Future of LaBrezza

#continuing tradition

Maurizio and Madina Abdi took over LaBrezza Ristorante to continue their family's legacy. Maurizio, who returned from a career in professional football in Europe, and Madina, a law professional, are dedicated to preserving the warm, family-oriented atmosphere and authentic Italian cuisine that made LaBrezza a beloved fixture in Calgary.
