My husband and I came to Rea's to celebrate my new job. It was the best Italian food I've had in years. The bruschetta was delicious and our meals tasted like home made. We can't wait to go back again!

We were so excited to go here for our anniversary after reading so many great reviews. We were seated without a word or a smile. Our appetizer out fast. Our mains came as we were still eating our appetizer. After that we were ignored for the rest of the time. Had to literally flag someone down for more water, twice.... More

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
