Well Kept Secret

Having lived in Calgary for 29 years and about 1 1/2 miles away from this fantastic place, I had never been able to eat a meal there. My husband has eaten there for lunch many times, told me about it but said it was too busy and hard to get in to. Well, we finally made a reservation for a... read more

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

My family went here to celebrate a birthday and we enjoyed everything. Great Pasta, Meatballs, Veal and Desserts. We will be back soon.

Lunch with team members. First time for many of us. Food was served warm and tasty. Service was wonderful. Two in the team were sharing and their plates were brought out already split - what a nice treat. Fresh buns, yum. Would like to see a lunch menu, as you order off the main menu would like to see smaller... More

Food is always great. Price is very reasonable and the Tutto Mare is unreal. Highly recommend, can't wait to go back.

The pasta is phenomenal. Not enough young people know about this place. The location is a bit random, but it is definitely worth finding and going to. DELICIOUS!

Not pretentious or fancy. But the. Food is amazing and the staff is very accommodating. The wine selection is limited. Worth checking out if you like Italian

We've been here a few times and it's not a place I'd go out of my way to visit, and it's out of the way. The food is okay, nothing overly fancy. The service started out good, but something happened along the way and our waiter started pulling serious attitude. Not somewhere I'd choose to go if it were up... More

I have been to Rea's 5 times now, but I've learned my lesson after not once but twice showing up on a weeknight and not being able to get in - this place is so good, you really do need to make a reservation, but it is really worth it! That says a lot, in my opinion, this place is... More

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
