Three of us stopped in for coffee and a pastry recently. As always it is consistently good, I don't usually have pastry but I was tempted and it was lovely. After that we did some grocery shopping as they have a great deli section and lots of interesting pasta, olive oils and balsamic vinegars amongst other things. It is always... More

All things Italian. This is an Italian deli with a small seating area. The porchetta and other sandwiches are amazing. Goo and interesting pizzas and other hot foods to go or to eat in. Good espresso. Great baking. You should probably eat before you start shopping. So many good things! Fresh breads reasonably prices, fresh pizza dough, Zillions of cheeses.... More

I went there to grab a panini and few grocery items. The panini was OK. I cannot say it was delicious. I looked at the pizza they serve: the crust was too thick to be Italian! In the grocery department, there are much fewer selections than, let's say, 12 months ago. And everything seemed to be more expensive than at... More

So loud and so busy but so good. Closest thing to real Italian in Calgary. Sandwiches pizza dessert and lasagna the best you can find.

I'm seldom disappointed with our visits to Lina's Italian Market. We usually start with a cappuccino for Ma Kettle, quickly followed with a doppio (double) espresso for Pa. I don't bother even looking at the pastry counter, even though it is loaded with fresh baked, decadent, and sinfully delicious treats from the old world, at least not right away. I... More

When you enter the place you already have a feel that the food will be good. The place smells fresh food. There are a great variety of soups, pastas, Italian food in general, espresso coffees and desserts. Everything very fresh and with a hint of home made. I had a Minestrone soup and I can tell that it was very... More

Came here when we were visiting family in Calgary, first of all to buy ingredients to make an Italian dinner for our hosts, but also, to treat ourselves to some of the goodies we saw available here. We knew it was popular with the locals as it was packed. Thankfully we found a seat and got to enjoy some of... More
