Is this your business?
This place is as "Italian" as Papa Johns.... meaning, not Italian at all. The bread they brought us tasted like stale white bread you can buy at Safeway. Same with the pasta. The main course, the Veal, was overcooked and tough. The white sauce on top of the veal was so buttery and fat....did not taste good.
I grew up eating here as a child with my family it is somewhere that is very familiar to me. They switched locations and I haven't gone back since. But I will be there soon and when I do go, I hope it's as wonderful of an experience as it was when I was a child. It will definitely remind me of my childhood so the nostalgia will be there. I miss the pizza and lasagna. To me it was the best Italian food and best pizza in the area growing up I hope it still is.
The wait staff has better things to do than to be working. They make that perfectly clear, as order after order is WRONG and late too. The kitchen can make things very, very greasy or just very greasy. They can also serve a salad that should have been thrown out 3 days ago. Pasta out of the jar or can even is better than this, and I can get greasy meat at fast food. After 4 times I give up on this place. Too bad it's so close (why I made my poor family go there more than once).
Has great home-style italian food....
We have been going to Italian Pines for over 20 years both here and the previous location near Lake Forest Mall. We love the food and the people, many of whom have been with the restaurant for many years. Our favorites are the chicken piccata, chicken cacciatore, fra diavoloi, the salads and especially the white pizza.
