Wonderful homemade food and pastries. Small tastefully decorated restaurant. A great place to eat and catch up with good friends.

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.

Best lunch in Gurnee! Tina even sang happy birthday in Italian to our our workmate. Mix of salads, sandwiches, and pastas. Great brownies too.

Eating at Tina's is like being in an Italian mother's kitchen. Literally, the kitchen is in the middle of the dining area. All of the food is homemade with breads, cannolli and sweets created daily. Tablecloths are all hand crocheted by Tina's mama when she's visiting from the old country. Food has a loving touch, with the eggplant parmigiana worth... More

In the inside corner of a strip mall, I met with 2 friends for lunch. It was very busy. Servers were delivering homemade Italian dishes. We each had the Tomato soup with goat cheese. Delicious!! I had Provolone e Verdure, the roasted veggie sandwich with eggplant, roasted red peppers, zucchini and pesto. Again, DELICIOUS! We had canolis and cafe latte... More

Being met at the door by Tina and her Mama made us feel like we were walking into their home. Everything is homemade and you can smell the goodness as soon as you walk in. They make their bread from scratch and the gravy for my Italian Sausage sandwich was made from scratch for sure! Best bread I have ever... More

So pleased that we finally tried this wonderful place.The servers were very attentive. The lunch specials included a bread basket and a small fresh spring salad with vinaigrette dressing. The Lasagna was excellent & so was the cheese Ravioli. The homemade sauce was so good that my hubby cleaned his plate with the bread. Dessert was cannoli, tiramisu & an... More
