Pina’s Bistro is a bright sparkling culinary jewel amid dozens of fine Italian eateries in South Orange County, California. Established in 1995 as a family enterprise (currently encompassing three generations under Pina’s guidance), the cuisine of her native Napoli has been lovingly and masterfully recreated and served to her loyal patrons for the past 16 years.
Using only the freshest and finest ingredients available in the marketplace Pina handcrafts all of her sausage, manicotti, cannelloni, lasagna, gnocchi, bread and sauces, not to mention her luxurious and sensual desert offerings as well as all of her other exquisite dishes.
In addition to regular menu items, Pina also offers a varied array of daily specials and signature dishes including a 16 oz Veal Chop Marsala, Chilean Sea Bass Marichiare and Sausage Pizzaiola to name just a few. Moreover, don’t be afraid to ask for an item that doesn’t appear on the menu – if Pina has the ingredients she will be more than happy to accommodate your request (such as a sumptuous veal braciole or any other number of tantalizing dishes that you may desire).
Pina’s clientele consists of a broad cross section of fiercely loyal patrons ranging from local residents to titans of the OC corporate scene, all of whom share a sincere love and appreciation for true home-made Italian cuisine served in a friendly, homey atmosphere by a warm and knowledgeable staff. Patrons find it both charming and comforting to be treated not as a customer, but as a member of the family.
Whether visiting for lunch or dinner, business or pleasure, you may always 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.”
