I have been dining at Tina's for a dozen years and the food is fantastic. The pasta is always great even on a hot day. Salads and sandwiches are terrific too. And best of all Tina is usually there and a friendlier more genuine person you will never meet. Outdoor tables, a wonderful bakery and cheerful staff make every visit... More

Will be going back for sure! Went with my parents for lunch today and it was amazing! We all had different pasta dishes and all of us were very happy with our meals. It was packed on a Monday around lunch hour. Even though they were very busy in the restaurant plus lots of takeout orders the service was great!... More

We walked in for lunch today and immediately knew we would enjoy our meal! Monday at lunch and the place is packed. We had to wait for 10 minutes for a table but it was worth it. We each had a different pasta dish, the meatball on my dish was the best I have ever had. We each had a... More

I have eaten at the restaurant and gotten take out. I like the chicken salad sandwich and mixed green salad with a fruit-like dressing. Brownie are also on point. Friendly place.

Tucked away in a strip mall, this little restaurant is a lucky find. The owner checks on every table personally. Wonderful for lunch and I had the good fortune of attending a party catered by Tina's which was as good. The sandwiches were delicious, the home made potato chips were decadent and I don't have the vocabulary to describe how... More

I meet a friend here once a month because it continues to be the best restaurant we have found in the area. You are welcomed as soon as you enter with the smell of fresh baked break and Tina herself! We always arrive around 11:30 to beat the rush because many times there will be a line at the door... More

Some of the best Italian food since I have lived in Chicago! Small, intimate, friendly, feels like eating in an Italian family's dining room. The pastas are great, so is the salad, and the Cannock...Mama Mia!

This restaurant is tucked into a strip mall on the SE corner of Washington & Rte 21. The food is good, a little pricey for the quantity but you won't be disappointed
