Authentic Italian!!

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... read 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.

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
