What is Lina’s Italian Market like?Lina's Italian Market Calgary

Each location has a cafe and cappuccino bar with so many delicious pastries, hot lunches, pizza slices and sandwiches created by Lina’s Executive Chef Manuel Panfili that you need to try!

And don’t forget about the deli, groceries, bakery, freshly made ready-to-go dinners (lasagna, pasta, etc), homemade pasta sauces (try Alfredo or four-cheese sauce), grated cheese, and desserts (their amazing tiramisu), and other authentic products straight from Italy and other places in Europe.

Lina’s Italian Market also supports locally made products and businesses, so you will find a selection of local YYC products there too. The McKenzie Towne location also offers Adele’s Flowers located in the corner of Lina’s Italian Supermercato.

This location has the best authentic Italian pizza in Calgary with the largest slices. I also recommend their Tiramisu that’s ready to go. It’s one of the best in Calgary!

It’s good to know that Lina’s Italian Market also delivers their groceries, meals, kits, meat, pizzas, cakes, pastries and other delicious items.

Where to buy the best pizza dough in Calgary?

At Lina’s, of course! They make the freshest authentic pizza dough in Calgary every single day! It’s the easiest and the best pizza you can make at home!

The dough is easy to work with, and I’ve made many pizzas, cinnamon buns and piroshki (Russian buns stuffed with savoury (meat, cabbage, etc) or sweet filling (apples, berries, etc).
