Had lunch during the week with a friend and the place was packed at 12:30. I had the grilled veggie sandwich and it was yummy. My friend also loved her chicken salad. Great place to purchase desserts to go & everything is homemade (tiramisu, cookies, etc).

If your are near Gurnee for any reason (Six Flags, BassPro, Gurnee Mills, etc), do not miss the opportunity to have a meal at Tina's Italian Bake Shop. You will not regret it. Tina's is located is an rather ordinary looking mini-mall and does not catch your attention from the outside. Once you walk inside, it is like walking into... More

My wife is half-Italian so she is always on the alert for a good Italian restaurant--and there are plenty of the in the Chicago area. But Gurnee? That's a long drive from our home in downtown Chicago. Located at 5101 Washington Street in Saratoga Square in the far north suburban community, Tina's Italian Bake Shop has been serving sweets, sandwiches,... More

Great food prepared by a great lady, Tina. What a friendly atmosphere with a wonderful staff. Only open for lunch with Italian dishes, sandwiches and bakery items. Everything is delicious - you can't go wrong with anything on the menu!

A wonderful independently owned bistro type atmosphere. Everything is very fresh and we'll seasoned without going overboard. Can get very busy but servers on the spot and delicious sandwiches, soups and fresh salads.

We went for the first time yesterday for lunch. Tables are a bit too close together, but we were ok with it. Great lasagna, good service and homey, friendly atmosphere. Highly recommend it. We'll definitely be back. Don't go home without the cannoli - the best I've ever had! My husband had the bread pudding and he loved it. A... More

Having lived in Italy and being married to an Italian, I have a soft spot for Italian meals and desserts. This little shop/café sits quietly at the end of a small strip mall and is easy to miss. However, take one step inside and you are instantly greeted with the sweet smell of Italian cookies. The shop is small and... More

Tina's has a wonderful homey atmosphere with a friendly staff. There is a wide range of dishes with daily specials and delicious home made desserts. My group has eaten lunch here since it opened and appreciate the home cooked food and great service.
