Reading the reviews I expected more from this place. Just regular panini, soup and salads. Nothing special here, this place is over rated.

Panini Di Manzo and Chicken Salad was great. Strip mall Location does not give Tina's the justice she deserves; but, once inside you'll love the atmosphere and the food and service was Excellent!

Buddy gave me two choices, A chain restaurant or home cooking italian. I chose Home cooking and ten minutes later we were at Tina's. Old line spot with big portions and friendly service. Tina checked on us twice and gave us a sweet at the end of the meal. I enjoyed the Baked lasagna and it was fantastic. Buddy had... More

We arrived for our lunch at 11:20 and by 11:50 there were people waiting for tables. The smell of fresh baked bread hits you as soon as you walk in the door. All bread made daily on premise and they tempt you with a small plate of parmesan crusted bread as soon as you sit down. We both had the... More

The food was excellent and the service was super friendly. A great place for lunch. I have been to Tina's about 4 - 5 times and have never been disappointed with the experience. The food is always very fresh and homemade.

Tina's small Italian restaurant offers delicious food. The salads are tasty. But it is the pasta dishes which will keep you coming back. Everything is homemade! Everything! The hand crocheted table cloths are all different. (You may catch Tina's mother crocheting them in the corner.) The service is consistent. It gets very busy over the lunch hour. So come early...

This cute little place is so very well maintained with wonderful food and dessert options. The vanilla latte is honestly "to die for". The sandwiches are all delicious, with the bandera italiano as my favorite. Each item is carefully prepared. No alcohol is served. It is closed on Sunday.

Tina's is a family owned restaurant. The food is delicious although it does take time to get service and get the food. The restaurant does seem a little disorganized; probably because it's family owned, I think ran by Tina herself. The food is very good but the decor could use an update.
