Looking for good food? Do you need to plan a special event? Lino's may be the place to go. I attended a wedding rehersal dinner at Lino's that was fabulous. I just spent 2.5 weeks in Italy and the food was comparable. Check out Lino's

I don't believe I've had a bad meal at Lino's and prices are very customer friendly. Our Credit Union has an annual meeting there and the service is excellent and wait staff very responsive and friendly.

This is a very busy place on Friday and Saturday nights, the earlier the arrival the faster you can get seated. I will admit the food is truly worth the wait!
