expect to experience exceptional quality traditional Italian cuisine created to meet the very highest standards of gastronomic excellence. Pina rigidly adheres to this standard and proudly proclaims – "I will not serve any dish that I would not be happy to eat myself."
Pina's is the best/most authentic Italian cuisine you will find (I'm Italian). We've been coming here for years, have used Pina's to cater at both our home and business and no one can get enough. We love Pina's and the entire family.
Very busy and only one server. Food exceptional as always. Loved the food as did our entire party. Would request a table away from the kitchen but there isn’t one as it is a small venue. You know what to expect so you go for the wonderful food.
Excellent as always, a wonderful small family restaurant with heart.
Pina's cooking just gets better with each year. An intimate place for dinner with excellent food and friendly, family service.
Excellent little gem. Don’t miss it!!!
This is a nice local establishment; authentic. The only thing disappointing was that we ordered red wine, and it was in a tiny white wine glass. That certainly detracts when you have to drink a Pinot Noir from that kind of glass. It was a decent pour, but the glass detracted from our drinking pleasure. Do I need to bring our own glasses?
Pina’s is always nice as you are family when you eat there. Very honest about menu and wine selections. Servers are very nice. They want you to be happy and feel at home, not in a pretentious way, but in a family way. We had sea bass, salmon, pasta, shrimp, lamb, sausage, tortellini, salad, etc. Shared bites. All of it was great.
A long time family favorite of ours, particularly when celebrating a special occasion, as we were.
I had the Veal Chop, which Mama always cooks the way I want. YUM!!
Great food and service. Came in for Valentine's Dinner. Special menu. Everything was wonderful. Can't wait to go back and try their regular menu.
Love this cozy little place. Food was outstanding. My wife had the gnocchi & Sausage, excellent. Spaghetti bolgenese, best ever, spectacular!
It was our first time as a family that lives locally within walking distance and went with our out of town grandmother. We all thought fantastic food and great experience! Will definitely be back in near future.
Tustin’s hidden gem for sure.
We LOVE LOVE LOVE Pina's Bistro! This was our first visit but can be guaranteed that every time we travel to So Cal from Michigan to visit family, we will be dining at this gem!!! Small and intimate. You feel as if you are walking into Nonna's home and sitting in her kitchen for the BEST homemade meal!!!!
Food was absolutely wonderful. I have a garlic allergy, but because they make everything fresh I was still able to enjoy a delicious linguine and calamari. My dining partner had the eggplant Parmesan with sausage and said it was great. I will definitely go back every time I visit this area.
Food was amazing and the service excellent. small restaurant but big in food taste.
We love coming to Pina's Bistro. It is casual and cozy. Food quality is excellent. We love their veal chop! Great service-no rush to order, time to chat. Be sure to make a reservation on weekends, as it is very small. Outdoor seating is available.
No trip to Orange County is complete without a visit to Pina's.
Awesome food, great atmosphere, perfect date spot.
Love this place. Visit every time I come to town. Pina and her daughter are wonderful! Every dish I have ever had DELICIOUS! Amazing dressing too
Our first time visit and we look forward to many more. Pina instantly recognized that we were newcomers and welcomed us and explained part of the menu. We had reservations and were immediately seated. Service was exceptional. Started off with homemade bread and leafy green salads with very tasty homemade dressing. My husband had veal piccata served with angle hair pasta, and I opted for the sausage and peppers. They make their own sausage so my husband ordered a side of it. You could cut it with your fork! Wonderful! The menu is varied and will please most palates. We very much enjoyed our evening and look forward to visiting again soon.
I can only say Pina’s has become my Go-to restaurant, not just for fantastic Italian food, but for any occasion regular or special.
This is s local jewel operated by very competent family management. Been there for years and we have been a regular over the last 7 years or so.
The wide range of menu selection of food is fresh, tasty and ample, with a “family style” friendly experience.
Love Pina and her daughters. They create an amazing family environment every night and Pina’s food is consistently delicious and yes, it’s truly Italian. She makes the best carpaccio in the world, including the best places in Italy. My to go place when at home.
I still see this as a hidden in plain sight gem. Penne with sausage & asparagus in tomato cream sauce rocks!
The experience of Pina’s is always good
Never have been disappointed
The food and Service is impeccable
Food was great. Wonderful friendly staff.
Great food in a cozy corner of Tustin. All hand made, fresh ingredients, though portion sizes were small. We ate outside, which was quiet and the service was very good. It was a bit more than I expected, but with the handmade fresh ingredients it was worth the drive.
Best Italian restaurant we have ever been to! This is where we go for all our special occasions.
Best family owned Italian food in Orange County.
We travel to Southern California to visit her mother about every quarter and we never miss an opportunity to have dinner at Pina’s! Always excellent always reliable! I am in love with their signature salad dressing too.
Brilliant place for authentic and home style Italian food !! Pinas doing magic in the kitchen! We keep going back and loving it !
Service is friendly and excellent! Food is always excellent.
Great food and atmosphere. Highly recommend!
It is like eating in a great italian cook's own hous!e! BELLISSIMO
quality food, it tastes like someone cares about food
Date night again. Again, a warm welcome from Pina and her daughters. I had the special Beef Ravioli in cream sauce. Totally awesome. My husband had an off menu special of Penni pasta, broccoli and sausage in a cream sauce. We have a new favorite restaurant.
Always wonderful food and service. Authentic and fresh, full of flavor.
Excellent food and service!
