Growing up in a very Italian town, you appreciate great Italian food. Pina's Bistro is hands down the best Italian Restaurant in Orange County.
Everything is homemade from the sauce to the pasta. The service is always amazing and its busy. So you have to make reservations. I love the linguini and clam sauce, the lobster ravioli, and Pina's chicken parm could be its own food group. Let the staff pick the perfect wine for your meal. Not sure what to get, bring a pizza home. They have the best pizza in town.
Try Pina's; and you'll discover no other place quite measures up when it comes to pasta.
