Great evening of food and atmosphere

Four of us ventured to Rea's for dinner. We were seated promptly, had a delightfully pleasant waitress and, as usual, excellent Italian cuisine ranging from veal, lasagna to seafood pasta dishes. All very good accompanied by quality house wine....what's not to like!

Genuine Italian prepared and served hot by the owners, their family and other caring staff. Mid level ambiance in a lively atmosphere. The subtle aroma of fine Italian herbs whet my appetite. The menu is varied and excellent. Had saute'd calamari (NOT deep fried) which was fabulous; the Tiramisu is so good I didn't want to share. I called up... More

Reas is stuck in an obscure building in an industrial area in north east Calgary. Once inside it is cosy place with very good Italian food. All pastas are cooked and seasoned properly (Penne Puttanesca, Linguini Tutto Mare) and the pizza (Dom Special, Reas Special) is authentic. Service is always good even though the restaurant can be very busy, particularly... More

The food at Rea!s is always fresh. Nothing is cooked before it's ordered. Owners make their clients feel welcome. They know how to pace themselves so one never feels rushed. I would recommend Rea's and have done so many times in the past.

I went to Reas about a week or two ago with an old friend and the food was delicious but service was quite slow. My friend caught a glimpse of a young white man with a very red face back in the kitchen wiping his very sweaty face with a cloth he also seemed to be using to dry the... More

Came to Calgary a few Fridays ago for business and a client of mine recommended we dine here. We ordered antipasto to start and Veal Piarda with the pasta of the day for an entree, both very good. If it wasn't for the fact that we saw a young man wipe his face with the same cloth he wiped the... More
