Terrific sandwiches, delicious pasta dishes, scrumptious salads. We go every chance we get. My only regret is Tina's is only open for lunch

Whenever we meet for lunch, it's always Tina's- so fresh and delicious everytime! The place is small and comfortable, so you may have to wait for a table or they may be out of something because they only make so much. Neither is a problem. Waits are short and there are plenty of other food items to choose from. Service... More

I have been to Tina's another three times since my first visit in 2013. Twice just for the bread pudding...it's the best! If you haven't been to Tina's - GO! You won't be disappointed.

I really like supporting local businesses, but it's not that often that I return to the same place. I've been to Tina's five times in the last six months - a record for me! I've tried something different every time, and loved every entree. My favorite is to do the Bake Shop Special - half a sandwich and a cup... More

I found the food reasonable, atmosphere reasonable and the costs...pricey. Would go back though. The feel of being in an Italian kitchen is different

Don't you just love restaurant's that have figured things out, like how to make good food that you enjoy eating? I know I do. I'm not anti-chain or anti-franchise, but I really love to see small independents thrive. And that's what Tina's is, a small independent that is part deli, part bake shop, part restaurant, and all yummy. Tina does... More

The food is wonderful. Fresh Italian. I cannot eat gluten and the chicken salad is so good. The place is small. Lace tablecloths and everyone feels like family. Tina is there every day and makes a point to come and say hello and see how you are enjoying your meal. The bakery items look amazing!!! No gluten free that I... More

We have been going to Tina's for years. The food is always great and the staff are super nice. Try any of the pastas, I tend to stick with the lasagna. It is full of flavor and freshness and doesn't feel to heavy. My husband usually gets the bucatini with sausage and he describes it as "perfectly luxurious". It's simple... More

I've been here four times now, and Tina's is simply marvelous. My husband and I met here recently for lunch, and it was very good. Delicious aromas greet you the second you step in the door. The pesto spread for the bread is light and flavorful. His eggplant parmigian was tasty with the perfect tomato sauce accompanying it. The breading... More

We ate here on a weekday at about 1:30. It was pretty crowded but we managed to find a seat quickly. Everything we had was delicious, we had 3 lasagnas, and 1 Italian sandwich with Parmesan chips. For dessert we had tiramisu which was delicious. An excellent Italian cafe!
