Another winning recommendation from Trip Advisor

Hit TripAdvisor for a restaurant recommendation for the second day in a row and found Tina's. Great chicken sandwich and chicken salad. Prompt and friendly service. Tiramisu and coffee also great!

Great place for lunch and maybe even bring some sweets home. Food is very good with very friendly service, I traditionally have one of the sandwiches. Egg salad being one of my favorites.

I LOVE coming here! The food is always delicious. They serve soup, salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes, and baked goods. You can't go wrong with anything. The tiramisu is the best I have ever had. Tina and her staff are always friendly and attentive. The cafe is cute inside and if the weather is nice, I rather enjoy the patio chairs... More

Great little cafe so cute inside. The food is really good especially if you like tuna sandwiches, they are to die for, and the prices are not bad. Don't come here looking for a huge meal though it is a very light menu no heavy pastas here mostly sandwiches and salads. The pastries are amazing!!! Especially the small cookies. The... More

You can't go wrong with anything you order here. My personal favorite is the Eggplant Parmesan served with a small, delicious salad and the fresh bread, baked daily. All meals are served with the traditional olive oil and fresh parmesan cheese. Tina is a delightful Italian and crafts all the meals and desserts. It's a small Italian Bistro where you... More

Fresh, incredibly clean, and simply the best lunch you can have, anywhere. And, yes, it is worth the trip if you are far away. How Tina (the smiling owner) manages to serve incredible food, simply made and beautifully served, each and every day on each and every plate is a fascinating mystery. Her pastries are criminally good, and every single... More

Love the delicious lunches with a fresh pastry and espresso for dessert. Such a cute place with owner Tina always so welcoming. Everyone I've brought here has loved it. I've been coming since I worked nearby and continue to come for a great lunch or pick-me-up. Consistently good!

I stopped in mid morning to bring home a fresh salad for lunch. The shop is bright, spotlessly clean, and cozily old world Italian. The aroma of fresh baked bread was wonderful. The salad and sandwich selection is very good along with a variety of soups. And then there are the pastries! Very charming and friendly people.

Tina's is the best place in Gurnee for lunch. I only wish it was open for dinner! The sandwiches and salads are delicious. Her baked goods are awesome. Very authentic Italian fare.
