The Italian Market is definitely friendly to everyone, and has a wide selection of pastas, sauces, bruschettas and the pizza is to die for with its stone oven baked, non greasy, thin but mighty generous topping and still tastes great as leftovers goodness. I use to be bored of pasta until I learned of all of the varieties their shelves has to offer, including spices, pestos, tapenads, anchovies, olive oils, and vinegrettes. I've only heard that Lina's does have more hot meals, however, it is more expensive. Italian Market is the way to go for regular grocery shopping and to just spoil yourself with amazing pizzas Thurs to Sundays, usually done by 6pm, and their lunch specials and pick-up catering of stuffed sandwiches for like $5-$6 each definitely impressed our university as well.
I realize this feedback is um, five years late, but hopefully this helps! Also read a review at: http://www.ffwdweekly.com/calgary-blo...
