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

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
