Maintaining a Very Good Reputation!

Reception was a little stiff, even though We had reservations. Once We received our server--it improved and was hospitable. Upper level dining area was a little stark---downstairs more atmospheric. Margheritta pizza was good but lacked basil---they brought pesto sauce as a... read more

Reception was a little stiff, even though We had reservations. Once We received our server--it improved and was hospitable. Upper level dining area was a little stark---downstairs more atmospheric. Margheritta pizza was good but lacked basil---they brought pesto sauce as a replacement. Bolognese was meaty and flavourful. Carbonara was excellent--the highlight pasta for the evening. Veal piccata very good. House... More

A week night meeting between old friends. I've been here with people from the office before but my friend never had. Waitress was very attentive, although very busy. House wine very palatable. Shared Ensalata Caprese - very generous servings. I had Pollo alla Funghi - huge portion - enough for today's lunch as well. And the piece de la resistance... More

Food was very good and the place has a nice casual atmosphere. I would go back for sure. Brucetta and lasagna were excellent. Service very friendly.

While visiting in Calgary we had the urge for GOOD Italian, not the microwaved, thawed ,version passed off as Italian. We went on a weeknight and the place was packed, A good sign indeed. The pasta was fresh and tasty while the Alfredo sauce had just the right amount of garlic. Service was very good. This was our first and... More

Nice Italian restaurant with reasonable prices, great service and atmosphere. I have taken pizza out before (which gets very busy) but thought we’d just pop in seeing it was a Tuesday evening and probably going to be quiet so we didn’t bother to have reservations. At first they said that they only had one table, even though the restaurant was... More

I have tried recently Rea's Cucina Restaurant. Vitello Pizzaiola was cooked at perfection. I ended the dinner with Tiramisu, which was a delights. All in all, the food is great here, service is fast and relaxed.

We went to Rea's on the strong recommendation of an Italian-Canadian friend of mine who has lived in Calgary his whole life. The food was unbelievably good. The service was pretty bad, considering. The Waitress didn't really know anything about the wine. She rushed through telling us anything about the menu and then abandoned us for minutes on end. She... More

I've been to Rea's for several special occasions. The food and the service is excellent. Prices are also reasonable and portions are generous. Don't let the location and exterior of the building scare you off! Overall, I highly recommend this family run restaurant.

4 couples met for dinner on a Thursday night. The restaurant has a nice ambiance although it is in an industrial part of Calgary. It took about 15-20 minutes before our drink orders were taken (my gin ceasars were uninspired with only a couple of lime wedges) and then shortly after that we got bread with roasted peppers and garlic....

Good parking. The dining room was pleasant but far too loud with impossibly poor tinny speakers. In fact, the speakers in the halls and toilet were superior to those in the dark dinning room. The heads are clean though. The selection of music was good as well, undecipherable in the dinning room. We had to change tables so that we... More
