Rea's is an interesting place. If you happen to be of Italian heritage, this is the place. For all appearances, its a family run place with a loyal following of regulars. The staff seems happy to be there and we were very well served. The food is a 1940's-1950's version of Italian that can only be described as comfort food... More

Rea's was the venue for a co-worker's retirement/goodbye gathering. Everyone enjoyed the assortment of appetizers, great wine and very delicious entrees. One of the owners was our server....his timing for attending to us was great, as he saw we were very engaged in our visiting! Thanks for the great food and service! Look forward to my next visit!

I've been to Rea's many times over the past 5 years. Each time, the quality is excellent. This is just good basic Italian cooking in a family restaurant. It is not upscale stuff from professional chefs .... just great dishes from family recipes. The pastas with rose sauce are especially great.

A group from our office stopped in for lunch after reading the good reviews. We weren't disappointed. The menu offers a wide range of dishes over a range of prices. The lunch special could be had for $30 and it sounded like quite the meal, but we didn't try it. The spaghetti carbonara I ordered was tasty, but basic. The... More

One of the fellows from work was moving on and he got to pick where to have lunch and he selected Rea's What a great pick, the pasta was delicious and the Tiramisu and cappuccino were awesome. It's no wonder why this family run restaurant is always packed. I hope to return soon.

WOW! Rea's is a place you can't go to just once. You'll love the warm and friendly family atmosphere, comfortable and cozy surroundings and a little touch of sophistication. There are plenty of Italian dishes on the menu to choose from for even the pickiest eater. Plenty of great wine choices too but you can't go wrong with their white... More

First time we went my husband took for me for our anniversary as he had been there previously on business lunches. Could not believe where it was located so thought it was a joke...however it is truely a hidden gem. I recommend making reservations as a lot of people are finding out how great the food and the service is.... More

This restaurant proves without a doubt that you can't judge a book by its cover. The outside isn't much to look at, but the inside is the real deal. Every dish from start to end was awesome. I highly recommend the lasagna and tiramisu. Everything tastes homemade and is rich in flavour and aroma. Make sure to finish off with... More

A party of 4..we all enjoyed the house red wine, Caesar salad and our veal and tortellini meals. Very tasty! Our server, was very friendly and outgoing! Made us feel very welcomed! And she has an awesome voice, singing a solo Happy Birthday, at a nearby table. We will be back again!

What a surprise! A family-run Italian restaurant behind Centre Street on a lot with car repair shops. We started with very tasty home-made sausage in tomato sauce. I followed with penne arrabiata which was rich and flavourful. Two others had the fettuccine with smoked salmon and were pleased. On a Monday night most table were full but we still had... More
