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.

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.

Tina always comes to our table to say Hello. She sings Happy Birthday when we enjoy our lunch for those occasions. Her food is delicious! Recently had the cheese lasagna. YUM! Comes with a salad and is just enough for the lunchtime meal. I can say that I have never had a meal that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy!

Sad that Tina's is only open for lunch because her food and bakery goods are out of this world. Been there many times, and went back again today and it's always been fantastic. Today had the lasagna which is always delicious and split the special pumpkin ravioli salad with my co-worker. The salad was outstanding. Also had the tomato &... More

Have eaten here for lunch a few times with my girlfriends and done take out. The food is always fresh and hot. Have never had a bad meal and the bread w/oil and cheese on the table is amazing.

Tina's is one of those hidden gems, owned by Tina herself, and packed with locals who like good Italian food at a reasonable price and a personal touch. It is small - almost tiny - but packed with character. The last time I was there for lunch we ate in the bakery kitchen. The bread had already been baked in... More

The place is small, it started as a bakery with a couple tables. They use handmade crochet tablecloths. We went as a group of 6 ladies. The food was awesome.

Fabulous salad and sandwich fare with homemade Italian breads. Everything is so fresh. Service is good and atmosphere is very "Italian bake shop." Homemade Italian deserts to tempt your sweet tooth too!
