Pina's Bistro is a tiny hole in the wall type restaurant. My husband and I have been going there for years. The decor hasn't changed because everyone is too busy cooking and serving customers. If the Italian dish is not on the menu, Pina will make it specially for you. A bit pricey, but delicious!

Another great dinner. The food is just great Had veal chops. Very good and cooked to perfection This is a very small place in strip mall with about 8 to 10 tables inside and a few outside Family owned so there is a pride to their work I always come here when in town. I highly recommend it

The food at Pina's is probably the best and most authentic Italian cuisine to be found in Orange County, CA! The only thing better than the food is the warm, friendly attention and service everyone gets from Pina and her daughters! It's like eating at my Grandma's house. "Try it, you'll like it!"

I just love this quaint little Italian restaurant in old town Tustin. Famiky ran by mom and her daughters. On a beautiful Thursday we were able to sit outside while enjoying our lunch. I am a creature of habit and absolutely love the lasagna here which comes with fresh baked bread and a nice size salad. My friend got the... More

While there are several good Italian restaurants in the Tustin-Santa Ana area, Pina's is a favorite because you know it is fresh, made onsite, authentic, and it is a family run operation. Small but comfortable like going to your grandparents house for dinner. I pretty much always get the pasta penne with sausage and peas. Generous portions but not excessive.... More

Just a hidden gem. Doesn't look like much. In small strip mall. But food is wonderful. Had grilled veil chop with pasta cooked in garlic and olive oil. Just wonderful Mother and daughter team. Even though I only go there when in town on business, they remember me It is worth the trip. It's small so go early

This is one of the best Italian restaurants I have eaten at ever! Pina, the owner, is from Sicily and you can tell from the smell and the taste that this is excellent Italian, not some cheap chain restaurant. All of the pasta is made from scatch and Pina slaves over the stove like my childhood Italian friend's grandmothers used... More
