Authentic Italian Experience

This cozy deli cafe has been here for years with good reason. They sell a wide range of Italian products: many different types of olives, cheeses, deli meats and homemade sausages. There's a small bakery, a fruit/veggie section and wholesome breads brought in from other bakeries, but my favourite... read more

It had been a while since we indulged in our casual lunch tradition at Lina's so we made a plan for Saturday late morning. It is always busy but it wasn't too bad this time. There were a few tables open so we didn't have to hunt one down while holding our tray. We even found parking on the first... More

Any time we travel to Calgary, we make a stop here. First a bite to eat at the great café, then off to cruise the isles and shop. The food is always fresh , like home made. Portions are generous, and $21.00 for 3 people is a bargain.

For many years we have come to Lina's for the Seafood Salad which we order and take home this time to our disappointment the seafood was like rubber, no taste and clearly well over cooked. We deposited it in the garbage as it was unfit to eat.

Wonderful deli and cafe. Love the porchetta sandwiches. The deli is amazing and we often make a charcuterie board for supper using their meats and cheeses. The boccocini is delicious and the olives are also very good. Well worth a visit.
