Great Italian Food

A must stop for their early bird dinners that include their special house salad, a generous entree, dessert and beverage. The waitstaff is always helpful and accommodating. A nice place for a casual meal with family or friends.

Here's the deal with Lino's. The service and staff are excellent, I couldn't ask for anything more. Also, the ambiance of the place is special, it's the type of restaurant you want to wander around in a bit just to get the feel of the place. It was recently recognized as an Illinois landmark. The pizza we ordered was under... More

Had an excellent dinner. Reasonable prices and authentic Italian entries. We had a group of 16 and for a Friday night I was pleasantly surprised from flexibility of the staff to speed of getting food out and quantity of entries. Did not get a chance to try their pizza but was told it was one of the best pies in... More

Lino's has been a family favorite for years. Have celebrated many birthday gatherings, wedding rehearsal dinner, bowling banquets, church functions after movie dinners and great carry outs. Never been disappointed. If there was an issue, the staff worked it out. Ok, now I'm hungry!

People working as host/hostess are very friendly. Upon being seated, the server we had was very chipper, and asked if we had been there before - our answer being that we had ordered out before and it was the first time for me to dine in. When our food we ordered (split an order entree of spinach and meat ravioli... More

Dining in or just carrying out pizza and special salad, you are always guaranteed a great meal. We have been coming here for years and have used there private rooms for adult and child birthday parties. Reasonably priced and delicious food, wonderful staff, you can not go wrong choosing this restaurant.

Great welcome, excellent service. Our waitress Tina was so good, I thought she acted like an owner! There is a large selection to choose from, all dinners come with a good salad. Also, ice cream included.

Lino's is probably the premier Italian restaurant in Rockford. It's one of those spots that friends and family always want to visit when they come to town. Many evenings they have local entertainment, too. The food is spot on Italian, although my personal favorite is their pizza. The prices are very reasonable, and most pasta dishes offer a small and...
