I really enjoy the Supermarket for good Italian Sausages, Good Feta and other cheeses. The Market greek salad is a favorite of mine. I do not recommend their hot items cooked in house. I have eaten sausage that sits in a hot well too long and dries out. Not so great. The sandwiches are pre made and sit for hours.... More

Great café for a casual lunch or quick bite. Don't expect to find a table on a weekend at lunch time unless you're lucky but get it to go and take it to nearby Confederation Park for a picnic. Once finished eating take a walk around the grocery aisles, stop at the deli or in house bakery for some groceries... More

Both the grocery store and the cafe offer really delicious food for really reasonable prices. A serious hidden gem of Calgary.

Food can be a bit hit and miss, especially the sandwiches which can be dry and somewhat bland. Best to stick with the hot food. Service is very slow and generally not that friendly. I do like the supermarket and bakery so go there a few times a month. The restaurant is no.longer a huge draw for me tho. One... More

I've been coming here for years, and whenever I am in Calgary for work I try and find a way to drop by. This is a great deli built into a fantastic Italian Market. To start with, the parking sucks! Secondly, the service is cafeteria style, which I am alright with, but bothers others. Whenever I come I have the... More

This Italian cafe offers freshly made Italian food such as pizza, pork bun, salad, soup, coffee, etc. for lunch from its kitchen inside a grocery store that sells all kinds of Italian cooking stuff. The food is good although it's pricy. The desserts are excellent but even more pricy. Almost all servers and kitchen helpers are senior ladies. However, on... More

A friend recommended a stop to Lina's when we were in Calgary for a long weekend. We loved it! An Italian grocery, complete with a deli and bakery. Oo la la - we stocked up with sandwiches, and baking for the road trip home along with some other Italian grocery finds and fresh baked breads. The location was super convenient... More

Ate here just after the lunchtime rush on Nov 6th. The food tasted like reheated frozen vegetable mix with a dry chicken fillet that also could have come from the frozen section at the local grocery store. Buffet style 'service' was very slow and the meal was cold, the meat bone dry and the veggies soggy. I asked to have... More
