We have been going to this restaurant for years and the food had always been consistently good. Despite its low profile location, it is definitely not a well kept secret as is evidenced by the number of patrons who are there on a regular basis. As many others have stated, reservations are always a good idea unless, perhaps, you are... More

This is one of my hidden secret restaurants that I love taking clients and or freinds /family to. Family run buisness that has been around for years. Truely autherntic style of cooking. The portions are large in size there should not be anyone who leaves hungry. The prices are reasonable for this experience. Children are welcome. They have hosted party's... More

Hadn't been there for years, since was named Sandros. Will be going back - quite enjoyed the seafood pasta. Make sure to book reservations as are necessary for dinner.

Unusual location amongst the small companies and lumber store but do not be deterred. Always great food here. Make sure you make a reservation since it is usually busy. Good selection of Italian dishes. Never had a bad meal there.

My husband and I have been in Italy this past summer and are learning Italian. We thought, what better way to practice than to go to an Italian restaurant here in Calgary and practice! We found Rea's online and we were not disappointed! I had the Spaghetti Bolognese and my husband had the Ravioli Panna and both dishes were amazing... More

What a nice surprise. Hidden amongst car repair shops and home improvement centers, this authentic Italian restaurant offers great dishes and hearty servings. Well worth the visit for a quick meal or a romantic night out.

We had a wonderful meal here that was average cost for good restaurants in Calgary. I had lasagna and the cheese was delicious. My table mates had veal dishes which they also enjoyed. The atmosphere was "white tablecloth" but was enhanced by our friendly waitress. I can't remember the Italian name, but a chocolate covered ice cream ball with a... More

Really enjoyed this place. Great waiter, had the Antipasto Italiano, a big pizza (cant remember the name and not on the website menu, had prosciutto, slice of tomato on each piece and drizzled in a pesto sauce) and the Tiramisu, all wonderful. Do yourself a favor and get the tiramisu. Would love to go back but from outside the country.... More
