This Italian deli shop has a multitude of kitchen items and food! Specialty foods also. Try the homemade garlic crostini at the deli counter. The breads were wonderful. Loved it. It is located not far from downtown on Centre St.

Fresh made sandwiches, pastas, and hand tossed pizza. The deli clerk trimmed... More

After reviewing so many great reviews about this place, I made this my 1st stop after getting off the plane at Calgary airport to pick up food and groceries for a week-long stay. Got freshly made spaghetti, house-made pasta sauce, tiramisu, and sparkling water. I was very excited at the thought of authentic Italian food after having visited Boston earlier... More

Always wanted to buy a Tiramisu cake from the Lina’s market, assuming it should be the best of the best. With that in my mind, organized a family gathering in my house; ordered the cake a week ahead. Cutting at home was stunned as it felt quite hard – a Tiramisu cake?!? Was more surprised hearing a comment from a... More

I really like Lina's, both for shopping for food and also to go and have a lunch or snack. The hot food they serve is delicious and well priced. The menu varies a little from day to day/week to week but there are some standard favorites that I always look forward to. Their soups are really tasty and the portion... More

Not a really large market but has a good bakery and I can find most any special item needed. Great place for lunch, Very busy between 1130 and 1330 every day. Love the porchetta sandwich and for dessert the Rum Baba or Vanilla slice are my favorite. Parking is a little tight when it's busy.
