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!

Great food with that homemade freshness coming through in every bite. Loved the sauce. Also the cannoli, that Tina personally brought me at the end of my meal as a bonus!

Such a fantastic little place! Don't let the location, which is in the middle of a strip mall, dissuade you. I am a vegetarian and there was plenty to eat here for vegetarians and meat eaters. You can eat in, order to go, or call in your order. This place has a full menu. You sit at tables and servers... More

We have been coming here for several months now (great mid-way point between Milwaukee and Chicago) and enjoy it more every time. This time we had 4 people and all had the lasagna special. For $9.99 you get a good portion of cheese lasagna with meat sauce and side house salad. The lasagna is made with homemade noodles and is... More

Enjoyed a delicious lunch at Tina's yesterday. Wonderful fresh fruit summer salad paired with an egg salad sandwich in fresh baked focaccia bread. Loved this place! Will be visiting again and again - anxious to try other choices on nice variety menu. Cappuccino was very good too! Did it try fresh baked desserts but will next visit!

Homemade authentic Italian food at its best! The meatballs are a must. The salads are prepared with the freshest ingredients and are absolutely delicious. The only thing missing is a nice glass of wine. The staff is friendly. A fantastic locally owned restaurant.

Everything I've ever eaten at Tina's has been delicious, and that's not an exaggeration. The grilled pear salad is amazing and the pasta dishes are delicious. Factor in Tina's charm, genuine appreciation for your business and ability to make you feel welcome, and it's a great dining experience. Oh, and the pastries and desserts are excellent, too.
