A Lakewood "Fav" for more than 5 Decades!

Yes, not only the locals, but those who have moved away and come back to Lakewood to visit, rally around Dino's! It's just great, simple, down-to-earth GOOD Italian food, no fancy, schmancy stuff here. Their own house made Italian sausage and Spumoni ice cream are standouts. Or try their Lasagne... read more

I've been a customer of Dino's for nearly 50 years and have NEVER had bad food or poor service. It's the best value for good food on the WEST side. The lasagna is awesome !! You always feel like the check is less than it should be and that is rare. Not fancy....just good food at a good fair price.

Whether dining in or picking up food, Dino's has never disappointed me. The food is amazing. Service is always great. My children are the 5th generation in my family to dine there. The Dino's Special sandwich is my all time favorite. My kids love home made spaghetti noodles with the rather giant meatballs. My husbands favorite sandwich is sausage and... More

I've eaten here a few times over the years with my family that lives in Lakewood; that being said every time I wish we didn't eat there. The pizza has a great crust; but I think it's the sauce I don't like. Somehow it tastes like green peppers or something I don't know and gives me indigestion all night. But... More

Friendly and good service, reasonably priced, large portions, but... The minestrone soup is very good. Spaghetti, meat balls, marinara, ravioli... bland bland bland... The homemade noodles are nice but whats a good noodle without good sauce? Looks like a pretty popular family spot. I think there sure are a lot more flavorful Italian choices in town to spend your money... More

This is a staple every time I am in Colorado. I grew up getting the half and half with homemade noodles and a meatball. Great stuff.

I went with my wife and four boys. The waitress patiently answered all our questions and was extremely nice. The building and decor are showing their age but it's adequate. However, the food is great. Homemade spaghetti noodles were pretty good. Meatballs were excellent. Cheese ravioli was awesome!

Amazing. There wasn't a single table in there not enjoying their food. Now, if you are looking for Italian fusion or garden chunky sauce, whatever the new modern take on Italian is...eat elsewhere. This place is for those of us that enjoyed grandma's incredible homemade meatballs, simple homemade bread and butter, fluffy garlic toast and thick, heavy, perfectly seasoned tomato... More

Been going here since the 70's (yes, my parents took me here) good then.... and still good now. The second (maybe even the third) generation is keeping the same standards as Dino himself...... Perfection...... If there is something "not right" They will correct it...... you just have to say something at the time..... nobody can be 100%, 100% of the... More

Inexpensive and fairly typical Italian food. Owned by locals, which makes me love it even more. Pretty much everything I've tasted is delicious.
