Rea's is a spectacular Italian family restaurant. We have been going there forever. Fresh and delicious with great service. This place is so busy, don't forget to make reservations.

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

Probably the best fettuccine I have ever had ... and I have had many over the years! Made with fresh, wholesome ingredients. Cooked to perfection. (Lots of butter in the bottom of the container when I warmed it up the next day!) Oh, right, portion size? Very generous! My husband had spaghetti and meatballs (his favorite dish to compare from...

Don't let the location of this restaurant trick you. Located just by a car body shop, rims place, truck accessories place, etc. The food is excellent. It is family style. I found my favourite Italian restaurant in Calgary! Can't wait to go again!

We went to Rea's for a birthday celebration. Talk about putting cold water on a happy mood. When we entered the restaurant we were greeted with a sour look from the "mama" and no words of welcome. When we gave our name to the hostess(?) we were told our reservation was Table number 2 without any advice or escort to... More

We went to Rea's for my son's 16th birthday. We ordered the smoked salmon and calamari appetizers which were superb. We then had two pizzas which were absolutely amazing. Great authentic Italian food. Our server was genuine, sweet and efficient. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Went to Rea's last Friday with friends who were first timers. The consensus was great food, ambiance and service! Started with the calamari - lightly breaded and tossed in marinara - simply delicious. Tender and flavorful. The antipasti platter was equally good - a nice combination of cheese, charcuterie and pickle. The boys shared a pizza - Rea's special -... More
